Pro-Trump UFC champ: ‘I’m bringing this belt to the White House’

Fourth ranked welterweight Colby “Chaos” Covington was suppose to lose to Brazilian champion Rafael dos Anjos in last Saturday night’s UFC bout in Chicago.

According to, dos Anjos was a -123 favorite to win (you bet $100 on dos Anjos to win, you win an additional $81.30). Covington was at +100 (you bet $100 on Covington to win, you win an additional $100).

But in a fight that went the full five rounds, Covington won in a unanimous decision, much to the chagrin of the Chicago crowd.

Hailing from California’s High Sierra Mountains, Covington made clear his political leanings just as soon as he won the belt. As noted by;

“I’m going to do what a real American should do. I’m bringing this belt to the White House, and I’m putting it on Donald Trump’s desk,” he said immediately after the decision was announced. Some of the Chicago fans booed after his proclamation.

After getting a chance to shower and clean himself up after the fight, Covington refreshed himself with a bottle of “nerd tears” and unloaded on the “Filthadelphia Eagles” during his post-fight press conference;
