Colby Covington recently stated that he would bring the UFC Interim Welterweight Title to the White House if victorious at UFC 225, but Punk has no plans to even go to the White House.
“Number one, I would not be invited,” said Punk to Fansided MMA. “Number two, no I would not go. If David Duke invites me over for tacos, I’m not going to David Duke’s house. Come on.”
Punk is not competing for a title like Covington is at UFC 225, but Punk could theoretically become a top contender and one day challenge for the gold with enough wins under his belt.
The main factor in Punk not wanting to go to the White House is that he believes President Donald Trump is a racist person.
“I call it like I see it - a racist is a racist,” Punk said. “I don’t care if you’re in the White House or you live down the street from me, I’m not hanging out with you.”
UFC 225 takes place on Saturday, June 9 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois with Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
