UFC welterweights Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington are divided on several aspects in the MMA sphere; however, their political views align. The former teammates and roommates took to Twitter and gave their immediate reactions to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Former Vice President Joe Biden beat out Donald Trump at the polls to become the forty-sixth President of the United States.
President Trump was looking to run for a second term in the Oval office.
Both Masvidal and Covington are ardent supporters of Donald Trump and were heavily campaigning in his favor. Not to mention, UFC President Dana White has also been a long-time supporter of Donald Trump’s effort as the President.
Additionally, fighters on the other side of the spectrum have been sounding off on social media following the Presidential elect announcement. Angela ‘Overkill’ Hill hilariously responded to a viral Tweet made by the sitting President Trump. The election was closely contested, and it was unsure when the results would be turned in.
Not to mention, former Bellator champion turned UFC fighter Michael Chandler tweeted out his views but then swiftly deleted them.
His Tweet readout, “Is Joe Biden really just taking the mic to talk about how “patient” we have to be and how “long” we are going to have to wait. AKA we are going to contest these results…hard. Wake up sheep.”
Colby Covington has also been a clear-cut advocate for Donald Trump. He became the first fighter to present a UFC belt to a sitting President. In turn, Trump has also been receptive to Colby and called him live on air following his dominant win over Tyron Woodley. There’s no doubt that Trump’s close association with the UFC brass and several prominent fighters will be a talking point.
‘Gamebred’ had been pulling out all the stops as of late in support for Donald Trump. 305’s favorite son spoke out at a rally leading into the elections and energized Latin voters in Florida. Additionally, Masvidal constantly used his massive platform to show his support for Trump’s campaign.
