UFC Welterweight Randy “Rude Boy” Brown has recently shared his thoughts about the altercation between Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington.
Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington’s altercation is the hottest topic in the world of mixed martial arts. The two previously had a scheduled bout that went the distance at UFC 272. Covington won convincingly in spite of not showcasing much of a striking game.
In the fall out from the bout, the bad blood between the two got to an even higher level with Masvidal reportedly holding a grudge over the fact that Covington mentioned his kids.
It’s been reported that Masvidal broke Colby’s teeth and damaged his Rolex watch. But this is not the first time Masvidal assaulted another opponent. Backstage, during an event he headlined in a bout against Darren Till, Masvidal was giving an interview when Leon Edwards passed by and provoked him. Jorge then decided to walk right into Edwards and throw 3 punches directly at his face. This is the source of the infamous 3-piece and a soda reference.
At the time, Masvidal comically explained that he delivered a “three-piece and a soda” to Edwards. The expression would later become a fan-favorite quote from the MMA star.
However, at the time there were no major players condemning Masvidal for his behavior. The general consensus is that Jorge had already fought Covington and lost. And he had no business jumping Colby unnoticed like that.
According to UFC Welterweight Randy Brown, the criticism surrounding Masvidal’s most recent assault might be racially motivated.
On Twitter, Brown wrote.
“I guess “3-piece and a soda” is only cool when it happened to Leon. Why all this selective outrage?” Brown questioned the MMA fanbase.
“You can’t talk “street s**t” for “entertainment” purposes then be surprised when it comes to you in the streets.”
As a young man, Masvidal used to pride himself as being one of the best sucker punchers in Miami.
In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Masvidal spoke about the subject.
“I’m really known like in my area of Westchester, Miami Florida, I’m known like I’m one of the best sucker punchers in the business,” Masvidal told the MMA reporter.
Helwani then questioned Masvidal’s story.:
“Sucker punches? That’s not a good thing to be known for.” Helwani asked.
The MMA fighter then responded:
“Hell yeah, it is. In the street it is.”
“If you’re a real street dude you know that you don’t tell somebody ‘hey me and you, outside!” [because] you might get shot, you might get killed.”
“Because of that, you learn to have a really good sucker punch and a really good 50-yeard dash.”
