President Donald Trump held an indoor rally last night in Henderson, Nevada and the country's leader mentioned a lot of UFC stars in his speech.
White was mentioned first by President Trump, with Trump talking about how much the UFC President loves the UFC fighters.
“He is so smart, so tough, so cunning,” Trump said (via MMA Fighting). “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. I’ve been a friend of his. He also loves his fighters. He wants to take care of his fighters and he brought some of them along, the best.”
Trump also predicted that Covington will defeat former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley this weekend at UFC Vegas 11.
“I’m going to be watching Colby, I’m a big fan of Colby,” Trump said in a video posted to Covington’s Instagram. “He is a winner, He is a champ and it’s going to be a great evening and a great fight. I wish him the best of luck. I’ve just seen him a lot and he is tough. Good luck champ.”
“He said he’s going to knock him out,” Trump said. “Well, we’re going to be watching. It’s right before the election, but I think I’m going to be watching it, OK? I’ll be watching. You better believe it. It’s going to be an incredible fight.”
