Earlier this month, UFC interim welterweight champion Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington got his wish fulfilled of meeting US President Donald Trump.
Recalling back, Covington claimed it was the best day of his life.
“It was the best day of my life,” Colby Covington said. “I actually gave him the title [belt], and he sat at his desk. We shared some stories. We laughed a little bit, we just hung out for a good 30, 45 minutes and just bull-shitted. He’s a big MMA fan, big UFC fan, and big wrestling fan. I didn’t know he used to wrestle back when he was in high school. So it’s pretty cool that we come from the same lineage, wrestlers. I guess that’s what all the greats come from.”
Covington also shared a funny story Trump told him about his multiple WWE appearances.
“He had a hair versus hair match with Vince McMahon in the pro wrestling match. Vince told [Trump], ‘Hey, hit me hard but don’t hit me in the eyes or the nose. So, just hit me in the forehead.’ So Trump’s like, ‘Okay, okay.’ And then in the moment he accidentally hit him in the nose and in the eye, and afterwards he was like, ‘Oh, I just got so caught in the moment, Vince.’ And then he saw him the next day, and Vince’s face was all busted up. His eye was all cut, and his nose was all messed up. It was pretty funny.”
