Welp, Colby Covington said he was going to do it and nobody believed him. Fast forward to today and yes, he actually managed to do it. Colby said that he was going to bring his interim title to the White House and he delivers on his promise. Dana White made the meeting happen but the result is the same. Colby Covington stood in the Oval Office with the President of the United States and cheesed it up for a photo op.
You have to really hand it to Covington, despite how you may feel about him. Strip away the douchey persona that he lays on and you have a guy who has come through on every promise that he’s made.
However, I find it interesting that the UFC says they are going to strip him of his belt, yet set up a meeting with the President so he can take photos with said belt. Then again, I don’t understand much of what the UFC does anymore. So, in a strange way, this all makes perfect sense.
