The new champion has promised to bring the title to the White House and UFC President Dana White says he can make that happen.
“He wants to take the (belt to the White House)? Yeah, I can make that happen,” White said at the UFC 225 post-fight press conference.
President Donald Trump and the UFC President have been in good standing with each other for quite awhile now, with White giving a speech in support of Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Politics are a hot topic issue no matter what medium anybody thrives in, but White says that isn’t a major issue with him and friends.
“Listen, I don’t care what your politics are. You can like whoever you want to like. If (Covington) likes Trump, he likes Trump. If somebody doesn’t like Trump, they don’t like Trump. I have a lot of friends that don’t like Trump, but I don’t ever talk to them about that. (Dana White Contender Series commentator Snoop Dogg) hates Trump, badly, and Snoop and I just never talk about that ever,” says White.
There has been no word yet from Trump or somebody from his office as to whether or not the meeting with Covington will go down.
