This is an absolutely incredible moment!
Even if you don't follow the UFC, you're gonna love this.
Colby Covington just came away with a huge win and what happened in his press conference afterwards?
President Trump was on the phone and Covington put it on speaker!
The call was awesome.
Covington gave Trump the credit for the win for giving him the "Dragon Energy" earlier when they met.
Covington then said the even bigger win was coming on November 3 and that he'd bring the belt to the White House to celebrate!
Fox News had more on Covington:
UFC fighter Colby Covington took aim at LeBron James Saturday night following his win over Tyron Woodley, calling the NBA star a “spineless coward.”
Covington, a public supporter of President Trump, took the opportunity to make a political statement against “woke athletes” after beating Woodley in five rounds by way of TKO.
“I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military out there,” he said, according to MMAFighting.com. “This world would not be safe without you guys, you keep us safe, and not these woke athletes. I'm sick of these spineless cowards like LeBron James.”
Covington shared a similar sentiment in his own Twitter post Saturday night in support of Trump and his bid for reelection.
“Nothing makes me prouder than fighting for the people who fight for America!!!” his tweet read. “THANK YOU to all the brave men and women of law enforcement and the military!!! Thank You @realDonaldTrump for all the love and support!! The silent majority is ready to make some noise November 3rd!!”
Trump himself called Covington during a post-match interview to congratulate him.
“I’m proud of you man,” Trump said. “I’m a big fan and I’m proud of you. You’re tough, you have the right spirit.”
