‘Covington Vs. Masvidal: From Friends To Foes’ Trailer Released Ahead Of UFC 272
The grudge match between the former allies Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal is just weeks away. The UFC dropped a short video trailer before the actual showdown.
On March 5, the former training partners now turned foes, will face each other in the main event of the UFC 272 pay-per-view inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The video goes with the name, “UFC 272 Look Ahead – Covington vs Masvidal: From Friends to Foes.”
Masvidal and Covington had shared a cordial relationship for the most part of their adolescence and the early career in combat sport, but things have now taken a completely opposite turn as now the one-time brothers-in-arms have utter disdain for each other.
Weeks ago, Masvidal had released a video documenting the same “friends to foe” narrative, but it was more of a fact-check revealing Covington’s personality.
However, the UFC has taken a rather balanced approach depicting how the tides have turned over the years. The trailer shows a brief review of Masvidal’s and Covington’s initial friendship that later on has turned into a bitter rivalry, with both the competitors labeling one other as fake and fabricated.
But whatever the story behind this detestation may be, the bottom line is that the fighting fans will witness another grueling contest between the two of the world’s best welterweights.
