Covington vs Masvidal: What has been said?

Jorge Masvidal: “It’s so amazing that I’m going to get to punch this guy in the face. And I really don’t like this guy, and I’m going to get paid for it – a big amount of money. 

“And I can’t wait just to expose him once again to the world. He’s a charlatan.

“You’ll see he’s just a fraud, man. He’s just holding up books to get triggers and things like that, but he doesn’t know anything about what he talks about. 

“And about fighting, he’s very limited. I’m going to show it, March 5, how limited he is.

“Keep talking s***, though. March 5 is getting closer and so is this knee to your temple. Not only am I going to break your face in a violent way, but the UFC is going to see you as such a liability that they’re going to kick you out, bro. 

“I’m going to f*** you up, man. March 5 can’t come close enough. See you soon b****.”
