Jorge Masvidal says that he is willing to fight his friend and teammate Colby Covington. “It’s just a fight nobody’s gonna die.”

It’s actually more rare than you might think that friends won’t fight each other in the Octagon, even for money. As Masvidal says, “It’s just a fight,” but even though mixed martial arts is a sport, it is a fight. After all, the object of the “game” is to do physical damage to your opponent, not to put points on the board.
