Jorge Masvidal Teases Boxing & MMA Comeback

Jorge Masvidal has laid out his return to comeback to combat sports in a conversation with ESPN. "All I could tell you is I'm getting ready for some type of combat and it's gonna be in the boxing realm. I don't know this or that or who it's going to be," Masvidal told the outlet this week. Furthermore, Masvidal expressed a desire to return to MMA, naming Justin Gaethje and Colby Covington as potential opponents.

Masvidal has been out of the sport since his loss to Gilbert Burns at UFC 287 last year. In the subsequent year, Masvidal has teased a boxing match against former MMA opponent Nate Diaz. He has also worked as a promoter for his own MMA promotion, Gamebred Bareknuckle. Gamebred has an event this week, which Masvidal has invited streamer N3on to broadcast from.

Jorge Masvidal Claims Police Were Biased Against Him

Masvidal's retirement was also marked by an ongoing beef with Covington. Masvidal allegedly attacked Covington outside a Miami Beach restaurant 17 days after he lost to Covington at UFC 272. Footage of the incident quickly emerged online and Masvidal was charged with two felonies. Furthermore, Covington has claimed Masvidal broke his tooth and gave him brain damage.

However, according to court documents from last April, Masvidal claimed that the Miami Beach Police Department showed "favoritism" towards Covington. According to Masvidal, Covington did not call 911 but a Miami Beach sergeant he trained with. Additionally, Masvidal claimed that when said sergeant arrived, he called in a "Code 3". Code 3 is a police response code for an incident that "is defined as an emergency response determined by factors such as immediate danger to officer or public safety." He also alleges that the unnamed sergeant made calls to individual officers to request their presence. Furthermore, Masvidal claims that in a podcast appearance prior to the incident, Covington said that he "rolls with the Miami Beach Police Department."
