UFC star Jorge Masvidal has been arrested for his alleged attack on Colby Covington earlier this week in Miami.
Covington was out for dinner and drinks on Monday night at Papi Steak restaurant in Miami. Apparently Jorge Masvidal was tipped off on Colby’s location and waited for him to exit the establishment. According to reports, when ‘Chaos’ made his way outside he was attacked by ‘Gamebred’ who had four or five other men with him.
Adam Weiss was an eyewitness to the incident and shared the following account of what he saw take place during a interview with WPLG Local 10:
”One guy clocked him (Colby) three or four times in the face. Amazing that… what stood out was how he didn’t go down (from the punches).”
While Jorge Masvidal was not immediately arrested, Miami police confirmed they were investigating the incident. That all changed this evening when ‘Gamebred’ was booked by police for his actions.

TMZ Sports later confirmed through jail records that Jorge Masvidal was booked in Miami at 10:27 PM ET on Wednesday and posed for a mug shot.
The records show the UFC star was booked on two charges — aggravated battery with a mask, and criminal mischief. His bond has been set at $15,000, the records show.
Monday night’s physical altercation came just weeks after Covington and Masvidal collided inside of the Octagon. The former best friends turned bitter rivals headlined UFC 272, with ‘Chaos’ earning a lopsided unanimous decision win.
