UFC Welterweight Colby Covington has maintained for a while now that he would want to visit the White House to present the UFC Title belt to President Trump should he win it from current Champion Tyron Woodley.
However, in a cruel twist of fate, not only was Colby Covington stripped of his interim Title earlier this week, but UFC supremo Dana White also stole his thunder by doing the same exact thing that Covington had wanted to.

Dana White has been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, often times publicly standing behind the beleaguered President despite a number of his fighters of hispanic heritage and from other countries slating his policies.
