UFC star Colby Covington told cops Jorge Masvidal punched him in the face twice and fractured his tooth in an attack outside of a Miami hotspot on Monday night … police documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, show.
In the docs, cops say Covington told them as he exited Papi Steak restaurant, Masvidal “ran up to him from his left, and without notice, punched him with a closed fist two times in the face.”
Cops in the report say Covington told them one punch landed on his mouth, while the other connected with his left eye.
According to the docs, cops say Covington heard Masvidal yell, “You shouldn’t have been talking about my kids.”
Several other males then allegedly tried to get involved, though cops say Covington told them he pushed one of the men away and ran back into Papi Steak, where he called police.
Cops say Covington told them he fractured his front left tooth in the attack, and also suffered an abrasion on his wrist. Police in the documents say Covington’s watch was damaged as well.
Masvidal is listed as a suspect in the docs. The incident type is described as a battery/felony. Police added an investigation into the allegations is underway.
“No additional information is currently available,” a police spokesperson said in a statement.
