As previously reported, UFC Welterweight Champion Colby Covington recently met with Donald Trump at the White House and presented him with the Welterweight Title.

Covington revealed details of his meeting with Trump on Twitter, which you can read below.

“He greeted me, and just kept calling me “Champ” and I went in and shook his hand, and gave him my belt. He goes “Here’s your belt back,” and I told him, “no, Mr. President, this belt’s for you. You’re the champion of the people. I’m the Welterweight Champion of the UFC, but you sir are the champion of the people.”
