Kamaru Usman, Other UFC Fighters React To Jorge Masvidal’s Alleged Attack On Colby Covington
Thousands on social media have been reacting to Jorge Masvidal’s alleged street attack on Colby Covington – including some fellow UFC fighters.
UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman was among many who took to Twitter after news spread Tuesday afternoon that Masvidal is facing possible felony battery charges after sucker punching Colby Covington, leaving him with a fractured tooth.
The police report initially redacted the victim’s name after invoking the right under Marsy’s Law, but several sources confirmed to MMA Fighting that the victim was Covington.
“This is not how we conduct our selves in this house,” Usman tweeted.
This is not how we conduct our selves in this house 😤😤😒 👊🏿🌍🤴🏿

Imagine having 25 minutes to punch someone as many times as you want legally, but you can’t get it done so you gotta sneak up at the steak house 😂😂
