Covington, who formed Colby Covington Incorporated after departing ATT, wants to hash out his problems with Masvidal in the Octagon.

“Absolutely, I do feel like it needs to be settled in the cage,” Covington told MMA Junkie. “But at the same time, if he doesn’t settle it in the cage, it will only be one reason and one person why it didn’t get settled in the cage – and that’ll be because of him. So if he tucks his tail in between his legs and runs away like the good little (expletive) that he is – he knows I’m his daddy, he knows I gave him so many spankings – so if he runs away, fans will know he’s a coward and he’s scared to fight. He doesn’t want to fight the best in the world, and we found out he’s all hype. He’s a 50-50 journeyman. Look at his record. His resume speaks for itself. He’s been knocked out. He’s been tapped out. Back in high school, he dropped out, and when we used to live together, I kicked him out. He’s a little (expletive).”

There has been no response yet from Masvidal as to the challenge made to him by the former interim welterweight champion.
