Jorge Masvidal has been arrested.

The Miami Beach police announced late Wednesday night that the UFC star was taken into custody on charges of aggravated battery with a mask and felony criminal mischief after he allegedly attacked Colby Covington outside of a restaurant.

You can see his mugshot in the tweet from the police below.

In a video tweeted by Rosh Lowe, Masvidal could be seen rushing into a police building while handcuffed. You can watch it below.

As I always say, Masvidal has every right in the world to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

That’s our system here, and we should all be incredibly thankful for it.

Having said that, this is an incredibly serious situation and Masvidal isn’t facing a minor traffic ticket. He’s facing two serious charges after allegedly attacking Covington.

The rivalry between them went from being interesting to going completely off the rails in a matter of weeks. The UFC is a wild beast, and Masvidal might now be in a huge amount of trouble.

We’ll have to wait and see how Dana White responds, but there’s no doubt this is the craziest thing an active fighter has allegedly done in a long time.
