In the aftermath of tonight's UFC 244 main event between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, former interim UFC Welterweight Champion Colby Covington took to Twitter and took shots at both fighters with his latest tweet.

UFC 244: Diaz vs Masvidal

Tonight's UFC 244 pay-per-view featured a highly anticipated Welterweight bout between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal with the winner being crowned as the new and inaugural BMF Champion.

Heading into tonight's event, Diaz laid out the initial challenge to Masvidal following his win over Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis in his last Octagon outing at UFC 241, which was also Diaz's first fight in almost three years. On the other hand, Masvidal had beaten Ben Askren within 5 seconds at UFC 239 prior to tonight's UFC 244 PPV.

As seen at the show, Masvidal started off the fight in a dominating fashion and had the bout in control for almost all three rounds before the doctors decided to call it off due to a cut on top of the right eye of Nate Diaz. This eventually led to Masvidal being announced as the winner of the bout via unanimous decision and being crowned as the first BMF Champion in UFC history.
