Many professional fighters have given their opinion on the alleged incident that took place outside of a Miami restaurant last month. You can now add Sean O’Malley’s name to that list of fighters.
With his coach Tim Welch, O’Malley appeared on the ‘This Past Weekend’ podcast with Theo Von and discussed the March 21 incident where Masvidal, per a Miami Beach police report, ambushed another individual, presumed to be Colby Covington, and punched them twice, once in the mouth fracturing a tooth and the other in the victim’s eye.
“It’s Not a Good Look for Jorge”
“Some thug gangster sh*t that was. I grew up in Montana, so I’m not raised to do that. He (Jorge Masvidal) grew up in the f*cking streets. That probably seemed normalish to him. Just how he was raised.”
“Colby posted 5 days in a row 50-45, 50-45, 50-45 talking shit. But there’s a fine line between entertainment and making it personal. Colby was on the entertainment line. Jorge was on the personal line, I think Colby was on the personal line too. It’s not a good look for Jorge. People loved it when he did it to Leon Edwards. I’m a fan of both.”
In 2019, Masvidal was being interviewed by Laura Sanko after his second round knockout of Darren Till in London. During the interview, Edwards passed by and directed comments towards ‘Gamebred.” Masvidal walked away from the interview, squared up to Edwards and threw multiple punches in what Masvidal would later dub as a “three piece and a soda.”
Edwards suffered a cut in the scuffle, but did not file any charges against Masvidal.
Masvidal now finds himself on bail after the alleged incident with Colby Covington last month. Due back in court on April 21, Masvidal is facing multiple charges, the most serious being a felony charge of aggravated battery. If convicted, Masvidal could face 15 years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
