UFC’s Covington vs Masvidal This Weekend: Promised to Be an Amazing Fight

Hosted at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV, UFC 272: Covington vs. Masvidal is a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship. This event takes place this weekend on March 5, 2022, and is promised to be an amazing fight. 

The Main Card is Colby Covington (16-3 UFC) vs Jorge Masvidal (35-15 UFC). Once best friends and teammates, Covington and Masvidal have a falling out after an alleged unfulfilled payment from Covington to Masvidal’s coach. Masvidal has denied these accusations, Now the two are sworn enemies, ready to settle who is the best UFC fighter. 

Despite this ramping up to be one of the biggest fights in Covington’s career, he forgoes getting a cut on pay-per-view sales. Covington tells the media, “I don’t care about the pay-per-view for this fight. This is a personal fight. I want to come and put on a show for the UFC and show that I’m deserving of being a lifetime UFC fighter.”

“This is just a personal rivalry, this isn’t about the money,” Covington continues. “I didn’t come here to fight for money. I took a pay cut, I didn’t care about the money for this fight. This is about settling a blood rivalry.

“This has been a long time coming. This guy is holding it off as long as he can until he has no chance or no other opportunities. This is the biggest opportunity he could get to pay his alimony and to pay his child support, so of course, he had to come take his losing paycheck.” 

In a virtual interview with Stephen A. Smith ramping up to the fight, Covington and Masvidal share a screen going back and forth, throwing threats and insults at each other. They are both yelling, manic and ready to leave it all in the ring Saturday night. 

Who will win this high-stakes fight? Find out Saturday night at 10PM EST.
