Colby Covington Calls Himself the Batman

In the history of UFC, we have seen many friendships turn into bitter rivalries, which were settled inside the octagon.

Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans, Chuck Liddle and Tito Ortiz, TJ Dillashaw ad Cody Garbrandt, and the list goes on.

Recently we saw former best friends and teammates, Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal settle their rivalry inside the octagon at UFC 272.

Not so long ago, Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal were best friends and they supported each other through their MMA journey. While Covington helped Masvidal immensely with his wrestling Masvidal helped Covington with his striking.

However, the former ATT teammates started trashing each other on social media as both of them were trying to get a title shot in the welterweight division.

Well now the rivalry is settled and Colby Covington got the last laugh. But, there have been times when Covington has said a few nice things about Masvidal.

During an interaction with fans before UFC on ESPN 5, when Covington was asked who is the second-best welterweight in UFC after him, Choas made a hilarious statement calling himself the Batman.

"Probably my best friend, Jorge Masvidal. He is number 2 fighter. I am batman he is Robin."- Colby Covington

It's very unlikely that Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal will cross paths again inside UFC. However, it's needless to say that the rivalry between them is still there. Masvidal has even said that he is willing to fight Covington on the street for his comments on his family during the fight build-up.
