Colby Covington claims he let his emotion get the best of him in the clash against Jorge Masvidal.

UFC fighter Colby Covington claims he let his emotion get the best out of him after him pick an incredible win over opponent Jorge Masvidal.

Masvidal and Covington were friends but turned foes last night after both fighters clashed in the UFC fight.

Covington dominanted the match after using his wrestling, pressure and crafty striking to wear out Masvidal, who was able to gut it out until the end.

“It wasn’t my best performance,” Covington said in the postfight news conference. “Just a lot of emotions going into it. That was a real friend of mine at one point in my career. … I let my emotions get the best of me. But it was still dominant. I showed the world how good I was.”

“I’ll see you soon,” Covington said, referring to Poirier. “You’re next!”

Masvidal had moments in the second round and dropped Covington in the fourth. But other than that, Covington was in control for the majority of the fight. After the bell, Covington took out his mouthpiece, stuck out his tongue at Masvidal and blew him kisses.

“I should have had more moments like that, but I was off today,” Masvidal said. “I didn’t have it.”
