“I told everybody I was going to make the welterweight division great again,” Covington declared at the post-fight press conference. “And now I’m going to celebrate how a real American should celebrate winning a world a title, and that’s going to the White House to see Mr. Donald Trump and put this on his desk! Unlike the Filthadelphia Eagles disrespecting our flag and kneeling for the national anthem.”

White a bigger fan of U.S. President Donald Trump was welcomed with open arms at the Trump casinos in Atlantic City, NJ, back when most states wanted nothing to do with (MMA) or the people who ran it. White said he would fulfill the newest interim titleholder’s wish during post-fight conference.
“He wants to take the (belt to the White House)? Yeah, I can make that happen,” White said.
“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.”
It looks like Colby Covington is seriously going to make a trip to White House.
