In video footage obtained by TMZ, Covington can be seen surrounded by police around 30 minutes after the alleged incident.
The clip was reportedly shot around 11:30 p.m. AND.
Covington was leaving the restaurant after dinner, when Masvidal allegedly attacked him outside.
Police filed a report at the scene and according to ESPN, Masvidal was charged with assault and battery.
The report did not name the victim after he invoked his right not to be identified under Marsy’s Law.
According to the victim, Masvidal ran to his side and punched him twice, once in the mouth and the other in the left eye.
The victim suffered a fractured left tooth as a result of the incident.
According to TMZ, Covington can be heard in the video saying, “He’s here swinging, trying to come at me, and I ran from the back.”

Covington then turned to social media star Bob Menery, who was with him at the restaurant, and asked: ‘How [Masvidal] do you even know that I am here? »
Menery replied, “I don’t know. You are everywhere on the Internet.
Earlier in the night, Menery shared a video on his Instagram Story which showed Covington and the band’s location, Papi Steak. Menery called Covington “Miami’s mother king” and wrote, “@papisteak is that spotttttttt.”
Menery also wrote, “tonight was bulls–t” in a note on his Instagram Story.
Masvidal shared a video on Twitter after the reported fight, calling the clip the “show your face challenge.”
Masvidal tagged Covington in the post, saying, “If you talkin’ shit you gotta back it up.”
Menery later tweeted, “Never had a problem with @GamebredFighter. Extremely disappointed with how he decided to handle his ongoing “beef” which has already been decided in a regulated platform. @ufc.
Malik Kawa, Founder and CEO of Masvidal’s First Round Management, responded to Menery’s tweet, writing, “Colby talked about the children of man. Guess that’s OK in your world, no disappointment there. You talk like a quality whore.
In a separate tweet, Kawa added, “I hear someone not from Miami is missing a tooth and says he’s the king of it. Can anyone confirm this? I need the video ASAP.
Covington and Masvidal — who are former friends and teammates turned foes — fought on March 5 at UFC 272. Covington won via unanimous decision, marking Masvidal’s third straight loss.
