Reports indicated that Masvidal had assaulted Covington last year in March outside a restaurant. The latter allegedly suffered broken teeth and a concussion. The incident occurred after Covington had beaten Masvidal at UFC 272. Although that may have been the case, Masvidal did state his innocence from the outset. But with the plea deal, Masvidal avoided up to 15 years in prison and a fine that could have been up to $10,000. Nevertheless, Masvidal was clear that he was innocent.
“Allegedly this, allegedly that. But I’m innocent, not guilty. I’m facing three felonies if you want to know the exact truth. And yeah, it’s still pending. This guy’s a coward f***, so what could I expect from a coward f*** like him,” Masvidal
With that being said, Masvidal was not intent on letting the feud die down anytime soon.

“I don’t know when, but me and Colby are going to see each other at some point. Whether it’s in a f****** cage, or I don’t know where the f*** it’s going to be, but we’re going to see each other for him lying on my name, for him f****** pressing charges, for everything that he’s f****** done, we are going to see each other.
“And it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be interesting. I’m going to knock the rest of his f****** teeth out. I got to knock two of his f****** fake-ass teeth out. Three felonies and a misdemeanor! F*** you, motherf*****. You piece of s***. You know with three felonies I never could have had a job again. Look, I was scared for my life,” Masvidal
He had 25 minutes to “see” Colby.
