Colby Covington was a figure of controversy ahead of earning the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship at UFC 225. He's hardly stopped since.
Covington said that he would take the UFC title to an even more controversial figure -- President Donald Trump, if he were to win it. Now that he's completed phase one, he's looking to make the meeting happen.
"We're gonna go to the White House. Dana White has said he could make it happen, so it's just a matter of time. He's busy, he's doing his rallies. When he gets settled down, we're going to bring the title to The President like a real warrior. No matter what your political side is, if the President invites you to the White House, you have to go, you're making living in America. Go try that act in South America, it wouldn't work in South America. I'm glad I can be a real American," said Covington.
The aforementioned UFC President Dana White is a friend of Trump's and spoke on his behalf during his campaign. Covington is on a campaign of his own, one that could see him retiring UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley, and beating UFC great Georges St-Pierre.
"We're looking at MSG or Vegas. It's going to happen. I'm going to retire Tyron Woodley. Nobody will have to hear the race baiter little bitch Tyron Woodley anymore. I'd like to fight GSP in Toronto. He's been seeing aliens and stuff. I don't know what's up with him. He lost to Johny Hendricks, and you know what Johny Hendricks is doing now -- he's working at McDonald's now. He let Matt Serra, that little meatball, knock him out. I know I'm the greatest Welterweight of all time. He's face first in his poutine, and I'm face first in poontang," said Covington.
