UFC 225’s co-main event featured an interim welterweight title fight between Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington and former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos. Covington made an emphatic statement and shocked the world by defeating heavy favourite Dos Anjos via unanimous decision.
With Covington’s ever so controversial statements, his post-fight octagon interview was also awaited. Expectedly Covington has some words for current champion Tyron Woodley. Him being the interim champ, his shot at Woodley is certainly confirmed. However what cannot be confirmed is Covington’s wish to bring the belt to the White House and put it on Trump’s desk. With the help of Dana White, this meeting can perhaps happen.
“He wants to take the (belt to the White House)? Yeah, I can make that happen,” White said at the UFC 225 post-fight press conference.
White further added that everybody is entitled to their opinion when it comes to supporting Trump or not.
“Listen, I don’t care what your politics are. You can like whoever you want to like. If (Covington) likes Trump, he likes Trump. If somebody doesn’t like Trump, they don’t like Trump. I have a lot of friends that don’t like Trump, but I don’t ever talk to them about that. (Dana White Contender Series commentator Snoop Dogg) hates Trump, badly, and Snoop and I just never talk about that ever.”
