Masvidal lost to Colby Covington via unanimous decision (46-49, 44-50, 45-50) at UFC 272 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It played out exactly as most expected. Masvidal did fine in the stand-up exchanges between the two men at distance, but Covington's wrestling game completely overwhelmed him. Every single time Jorge seemed to be making any sort of headway, Colby pushed forward for a takedown. They didn't all land, but even those that failed limited Masvidal's space on the feet. Jorge had arguably the biggest moment of the fight with a knockdown late in Round 4, but he simply didn't have the energy or ability to try to follow it up with additional power shots. It ended up being his last positive moment of the fight. Masvidal recently signed a new deal with the UFC which reportedly made him one of the highest-priced fighters in the company, so he isn't going anywhere, but Jorge has now lost three straight dating back to July 2020. Granted, those three defeats came against Covington and current UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman (twice), the two best 170-pound fighters in the world. On the bright side, on top of the contract, Masvidal did receive an extra $50,000 check for this one after this bout was awarded Fight of the Night honors.

Masvidal was forced to withdraw from his fight against Leon Edwards at UFC 269 due to an undisclosed injury, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
There is no word yet from the UFC as to whether this bout will be rebooked. Masvidal was hoping to get back on track following back-to-back losses to Kamaru Usman. As for Edwards, he is riding a nine-fight winning streak. The next opportunity for both men will likely be announced in the coming weeks.

Masvidal will take on Leon Edwards in a welterweight matchup at UFC 269 on Dec. 11, Mike Bohn of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Masvidal and Edwards have had an ongoing rivalry that started in 2019 when both fighters were involved in a backstage incident at a UFC event in London, and they'll finally settle the score in this bout. While the contracts for the fight have not been signed yet, the bout agreements have been sent to both parties. Masvidal may be coming off back-to-back losses to champion Kamaru Usman, but a win over a top contender like Edwards -- who is riding a nine-fight winning streak -- could get his name right back in the title conversation.
