UFC Welterweight Colby Covington is in the headlines yet again. This time around, he is under the spotlight for comparing himself to the United States president Donald Trump.
Colby threw out this weird comparison during the UFC 225 Media conference call which happened recently and even quoted a famous line from the president.
“The haters are saying I’m the underdog. You know who else was the underdog? The ruler of our nation Donald Trump. And just like Trump, I’m gonna grab these p*ssies and put them in their place,” he said. (via MMA Fighting)
The 30-year-old Colby will fight former UFC Lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC 225 for the Interim Welterweight championship. Dos Anjos was also present during the call and he also dropped some comparisons by claiming that Colby is a ‘worse’ version of Conor McGregor.
UFC 225 is scheduled to take place on June 9, 2018, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The pay-per-view will be headlined by the Middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
