Colby Covington has labeled Jorge Masvidal as “pitiful” because he wanted a rematch with Kamaru Usman after he was “destroyed” by the welterweight champion at UFC 251.
Chaos, who used to be Masvidal teammates but is now a bitter rival, quashed his criticism of the challenger’s efforts on Fight Island.
“It is sad that he is asking for a resit there,” he said MMA Junkie. “He lost every round. Dude, you have been destroyed. I won three rounds from “Marty Fakenewsman”. You’re not on my level, Jorge, and you know it.

“Deep down you could tell the media whatever you want and all that (vigorous) talk, guess (vigorous), I am no longer with the American Top Team, we can do this at any time.”
Covington challenged Usman for the title before the champion faced Masvidal and suffered a TKO defeat and broken jaw last December.
He targeted both men for their appearances on Fight Island at UFC 251, accused Usman of being boring and over-hyping Masvidal.
Covington continued, “I wanted to watch, but then I fell asleep. It was so boring, it was a cuddle party and they played footsie all the time. That was not a real fight.
Usman previously broke Covington’s jaw and defeated him in the fifth round with TKO last year
The stock of ‘Marty Fakenewsman’ went a long way in that fight. He’s definitely the dullest fighter in UFC history and we found out exactly what I was saying all the time: “Street Judas” Masvidal is a hype.
“He had his 15 seconds of fame, his 15 seconds of fame gone. He struck lightning in a bottle, but we found out what everyone knew. He’s not a well-rounded hunter, he’s unmasked. ‘
For the uninitiated, Covington’s nickname for Usman stems from the fact that champion Kamaru’s struggling coach couldn’t pronounce and called him Marty. Masvidal sometimes goes through ‘Street Jesus’ too, given his early days in the backyard and long wavy hair.
Masvidal recorded the Usman fight with just six days’ notice and believes he would take the win with a full training camp to prepare.
But it seems likely that Usman will defend his welterweight belt after this against Gilbert Burns or Leon Edwards.
Masvidal can eventually take over Covington to give himself back with a title shot in what could be a long-awaited wrestling match.
