Josh Thomson and 'Big' John McCarthy reacted to Colby Covington revealing the the details of Jorge Masvidal's injury that forced him out of the fight with Leon Edwards.

On their podcast Weighing In, the duo had contrasting opinions on whether 'Chaos' did the right thing by sharing details about Masvidal's injury. Josh Thomson started the conversation off by saying:

"Foul play John! Foul Play, man. Those are the things that you want to keep between the gym and [the fighters]. I know they don't train together anymore, but what's the point? I just think that it's a little shady but look Colby is known to do this type of s*** so it just adds to what he does, he just stirs the pot, keeps the candle going, he knows what he's doing. But overall at the end of the day he's going to heal up, he's going to be back, and he's going to fight and that's the biggest thing."

He said:

"Fair play. Totally fair play. If you are Colby Covington, you've moved on from ATT (American Top Team), you've moved on from all that stuff. All of the inner actions that they have had now... that they've zinged at each other [till now] and to sit there and say, 'it's foul play'... No, it's total fair play because that guy [Covington] is a competitor. He's getting under his skin... Good job Colby Covington!"
