UFC 272: Pros React to Masvidal vs Covington

Jorge Masvidal just managed to last through 5 rounds with former roommate Colby Covington. The terrible twosome decided their fight in wrestling exchanges. Masvidal’s defense was on point but it wasn’t enough. More striking exchanges would’ve enabled Masvidal to have more of a fighting change. Covington dominated in the clinch, and had the edge when it came to wrestling. The game plan undoubtedly worked. Masvidal briefly shined during round 5 when he managed to shake Covington with a laser sharp punch.
