Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland engaged in an intense altercation in a hotel lobby before the two are set to fight at the UFC 287 on Sunday. Videos surfaced of the two shouting at each other while being separated by UFC security, apparently, no physical fight took place.
Addressing the incident, Jorge Mesdival was immediately asked about the fight to which he said: “Absolutely nothing,” he said. “There’s nothing to talk about there. Just some d*** riding, clout chasing b****. Ain’t nothing to talk about.” This led to Holland grabbing the microphone and shouting right back at him. “That’s not what you were saying yesterday,” Holland fired back. “Watch your f****** mouth.”

Another question about the incident followed, which apparently got under White’s skin as he shut down the inquiry“Guys, come on, these two aren’t even fighting,” White said. “Knock it off. Do you have a question about the fight who these guys are fighting or do you just want to start s*** in here? What’s your question?”
Masvidal is set to take on Gilbert Burns in Saturday’s co-main event, while Holland is set to scrap with Santiago Ponzinibbio. White batted down another question aimed at Ponzinibbio when a reporter asked if he thought Holland might be distracted by the incident with Masvidal rather than focusing on him. Dana White struck back saying, “Don’t even answer that question!”
