JORGE MASVIDAL has been taken into custody following his alleged assault on UFC rival Colby Covington.

The pair reportedly clashed at a Miami steakhouse on Monday — less than three weeks after their grudge match in the octagon.

In a video posted on Twitter Masvidal is seen getting out of a police car in handcuffs by a local Miami journalist.

A reporter at the scene is heard yelling, “Jorge, do you have something to say” as he quickly runs to the police station.

ESPN report Masvidal, 37, was taken into custody late Wednesday night on charges of aggravated assault and criminal mischief.

His bail is said to have been set at $15,000 (£11,400).

Masvidal is believed to have turned himself in to police after his attorney called the Miami Beach Police Department.

An incident report obtained by ESPN describes Masvidal slapping a man twice in the face outside Miami Beach’s exclusive Papi Steak Restaurant.

A blow to the mouth caused part of the man’s tooth to snap, while the other blow made a connection with his eye.

The victim’s £68,000 Rolex watch is also said to have suffered £11,000 in damage.

While UFC star Covington isn’t named in the report, Masvidal said in an Instagram video, “Call this the show your face challenge, you ‘You shouldn’t have been talking about my kids.’

“What’s up, I’m from Dade County. If you say that, you have to support it. That’s how my city rolls, man.”

It is also understood that Masvidal required stitches on his right hand following the incident.

He is also said to have said, “You shouldn’t have talked about my kids,” again before the attack.

The pair fought at UFC 272 on March 5 after a bitter four-year feud, with Covington winning the fight via unanimous decision.

Shortly after losing the match, Masvidal warned Covington he would do everything in his power “to break his friggin’ jaw” after Covington reportedly spoke about Masvidal’s kids.
