Jorge Masvidal reportedly sucker-punched Colby Covington twice on Monday night in Miami as more details have been released.

Late Monday evening it was reported that Masvidal and Covington got into a scuffle at Miami Beach restaurant Papi Steak and police were called. At the time, no one knew who was at fault but on Tuesday, Fox Sports 640 South Florida radio host Andy Slater – who broke the story – took to Twitter to provide more details on the incident.

According to Slater, Masvidal went to the restaurant with a surgical mask on and his hood up and sucker-punched Covington twice. Those punches allegedly broke Covington’s tooth and he had an abrasion on his wrist.

“The initial call to police came from one of Colby Covington’s coaches, I’ve learned. Cops were told that Covington was the victim in the altercation with Masvidal. Jorge Masvidal, wearing a surgical mask and hoodie, sucker-punched Colby Covington twice, according to new info I’ve obtained. Covington was hit in the mouth and eye. One of his teeth did break, cops say,” Slater reported.

Along with providing news on what exactly happened, Slater later confirmed that Covington is working with police and Masvidal could be arrested for the incident.

“Jorge Masvidal is facing a felony arrest if Covington cooperates with police and their investigation proves the UFC star’s claims,” he added.
