YouTuber Jake Paul has branded Jorge Masvidal a 'b****'' after the UFC star's alleged steakhouse confrontation with Colby Covington.

Earlier this month, Covington defeated his friend-turned-rival at UFC 272 in Las Vegas. However, it appears their beef was not settled in the octagon and reportedly spilled over at the Papi Steak restaurant in Miami Beach on Monday night as Masvidal allegedly turned up when Covington was out for dinner.

As reported by TMZ, the incident took place after Covington had enjoyed dinner with YouTube group, The Nelk Boys. Masvidal allegedly struck two punches and fractured two of Covington’s teeth according to police documents.

The YouTuber-turned boxer took to social media to condemn Masvidal’s alleged actions in Miami. The controversial content creator has been eyeing a boxing bout with the American for some time, goading and calling him out at every opportunity.

“Masvidal is a b**** for ambushing Colby,” Paul tweeted. “Couldn’t hurt him in the cage so try to blindside him?”

After losing his contest to Covington, Masvidal warned a public attack could be imminent. He said: “If I see him out in the streets, I’m going to give him everything I’ve got to break his f***ing jaw.”

Masvidal has been accused of felony battery but is yet to be formally charged, according to ESPN. In footage obtained by TMZ, Covington can be heard saying: “He’s over here swinging, trying to come at me, and I ran. How would he know I’m here?”

Masvidal broke his silence in an Instagram video: “Call this the show your face challenge, you know? What’s up, I’m from Date County.

“You talk that s***, you gotta back it up. That’s how my city rolls man.”

Masvidal floored Covington in round four of their grudge match but was largely dominated throughout, and lost via decision. The bout appeared to end years of trash talk and feuding – but this alleged incident suggests there is still bad blood.
