Covington vs Masvidal: UFC 272 date, fight time, TV channel and live stream

The biggest grudge match in the UFC comes down to Saturday at UFC 272 as welterweights Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal face off in the main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Covington and Masvidal were good friends and trained together at American Top Team. At one point, Covington lived with Masvidal for about eight months. However, things quickly turned sour after Covington won the interim welterweight title from Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225 in June 2018 with Masvidal in his corner. Like in most relationships, friends have become bitter enemies over money.

Covington refused to pay longtime striking Masvidal trainer Paulino Hernandez his total amount for the fight, which he told MMA Junkie was $17,500. Instead, Covington only paid $5,000, according to Hernandez. After that, things started spiraling out of control, with Covington making veiled comments about Masvidal and his kids. The feud caused tension in the gym to the point where both were kicked out, with Masvidal eventually released.

Insults come and go with no end in sight. So, will UFC 272 solve their problems?

“The headline Sunday morning will be Jorge Masvidal wins and sends Colby Covington to his funeral,” Masvidal told DAZN News. “I’m going to knock him out and send him on a stretcher.”

Both guys are coming off a loss to the welterweight champion. Covington lost to Usman via unanimous decision at UFC 268 in December. Masvidal, the BMF champion, is coming off back-to-back losses to Usman. “Gamebred” lost via unanimous decision at UFC 251 in July 2020 and the subsequent rematch at UFC 261 in April via second-round knockout.
