Name a more iconic duo, we’ll….and you have already named millions. Give credit where credit’s due, but Colby Covington has found his soul mate.
There likely is greater context to Colby Covington hanging out with Donald Trump Jr., but this photo-op pretty much sums it all up.
Colby is walking in no man’s land at the moment. The UFC is done giving him a push and he’s creatively tapped out. Like Colby took one joke and tried to tell the same punchline 1,000 different ways.
So the massive drop off in celebrity meet-ups does make sense. Colby went from chilling with Dana White and President Donald Trump to asking DT Jr. and Eric (???) Trump to hold his belt.
Couple this with Colby now verbally attacking *checks notes* Mike Perry? And you have Colby looking darkest in the face with a single tear rushing down his cheek.
“If Mike Perry can win two fights in a row he’s getting an immediate title shot. I will defend my title against him,” Covington said to host Jason Kindschy. “I know he can’t count to as high as two and I know he’s probably not going to win two fights row.
“If Mike Perry, that dumb motherf—ng cousin f—r, sheep lover, horse-face lover motherf—r can win two fights in a row, Jason, he’s getting an immediate title shot. Winning two fights for a jobber who’s going to be fighting Indian casinos next year is going to be really tough for him.
“I don’t see it happening, but I wish him the best,” he added. “I really do hope he wins another fight so I can literally break his jaw and send him packing. He’ll never fight again. I promise you that.”
It was truly a humbling experience to stop by @trumptower and spend some time with @donaldjtrumpjr and @erictrump! Can’t thank you enough for all you and your family do for this country! #MAGA #Trump2020 #fleetweeknyc #greatamericanwinningmachine #AmericasChamp #PeoplesChamp pic.twitter.com/ETNhV4BNYl

The hashtags kind of says it all. Colby Covington has reached peak trying way too hard and most the MMA world has already moved on to something else more interesting.
