UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal has been charged with felony battery by police in the United States after an alleged altercation with rival Colby Covington outside a restaurant.
The incident is alleged to have taken place in Miami Beach, Florida, on Monday night.
The police report said Masvidal, 37, “punched him with a closed fist two times in the face”.
Covington beat Masvidal on points at UFC 272 in Las Vegas on 5 March.
Masvidal and former interim welterweight champion Covington, 34, were friends and training partners before their relationship broke down and turned into a heated rivalry.
