Jorge Masvidal has made a good deal with the prosecutor who is prosecuting the case Colby Covington case… the retired UFC superstar pleaded no contest to a crime and will not serve a minute behind bars or probation, TMZ Sports has learned.
As a result of the settlement, the two crimes Jorge faced were dropped: aggravated assault and criminal mischief, Masvidal’s attorney said. Bradford Cohen.
We’re also told there is NO stay-away order in the plea.
Masvidal had been behind bars for more than ten years.
Of course, the incident happened in March 2022 outside Papi Steak in Miami Beach… where Colby was having dinner with the Nelk Boys. When CC left, Masvidal was waiting outside, and the attack was on.
Covington told police that Masvidal punched him twice, breaking his tooth and even causing an alleged brain injury.
The fight outside the steakhouse took place just weeks after Colby defeated Jorge by unanimous decision at UFC 272 … pitting the former best friends-turned-enemies against each other.
Colby hasn’t fought since UFC 272… Meanwhile, Jorge retired from fighting in April 2023 Gilbert Brands. Masvidal then launched his own fight promotion, Gamebred.
