Jorge Masvidal’s Last Fight Details


Jorge Masvidal launched a flying front kick to start the bout that resembled his well-known flying knee against Ben Askren. Covington went for the early takedown when it didn't connect. Even while Gamebred successfully blocked his initial attempts, he did end up spending the majority of the first round on the ground or on the defensive.


In the second round of the fight, Masvidal had some success with his leg kicks. Additionally, he was successful in putting several combos together and put Covington to the ground. But when he decided to follow him there, he miscalculated. Covington switched positions and eventually threatened to choke before finishing the round with his own blows.


Covington secured an early takedown and did not give his opponent any opportunity to maneuver in the third round, even when Masvidal managed to open up a little bit of space, Chaos quickly closed it.


In the fourth round, Masvidal temporarily changed the course of events. He briefly buckled Covington with a flush right hand, but Covington quickly recovered since Masvidal didn't go for the finish.


That ended up being Masvidal's greatest opportunity to pull off an upset. In the fifth and final round of the bout, Covington immediately resumed controlling the action.


After the final bell, the judges scored 49-46, 50-44, and 50-45 in favor of Colby Covington and he was declared the winner via unanimous decision.
