The former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington is a huge supporter of the United States President Donald Trump. He has time and time again voiced his support and admiration for President Trump. He ha invited the President to his last fight as well, and while the President couldn’t make it to the fight he did wish him well before it and his family, including his son, were in attendance. Trump, later himself called and congratulated Colby after the fight. However, Covington’s recent close friend turned rival Jorge Masvidal has one-upped Covington and even trolled him because President Trump will be at UFC 244 for his fight rather be at Covington’s for UFC 245.
Masvidal in a recent interview given to MMA Junkie told them that he has great respect for Trump. He also trolled Covington over the fact that Trump is coming to the UFC to watch him fight. Here’s what he had to say:
I think real recognize real, No matter what your views are on Trump as a president, the guy’s a bad (expletive), man. The money that he’s made, the obstacles that he’s conquered. He’s a bad (expletive) in his own way. No matter what your political views are. Who’s he coming to see? It’s not that (expletive) with a MAGA hat talking about ‘Trump this, Trump that.’ And (Covington) don’t know (expletive) about politics. I’m not going to sit here and talk about politics or act like I know about it, but I ain’t going to try to sell people that I know about politics. That (expletive) can’t even spell the nation’s capital. Inbred-ass retard.
