Covington has visited the White House on multiple occasions. After defeating Rafael Dos Anjos for the interim title, Covington brought his belt to the President’s den. Trump also wishes Covington good luck messages publically, before the UFC welterweight’s contests inside the Octagon.

Trump just ended his tenure as the POTUS after Joe Biden began a new era yesterday. If Covington can secure such a close relationship with the new president too, remains to be seen. But how much Trump would like that is unsure. But Covington doesn’t mind too much leaving his friends high and dry. His recent turn of events with Jorge Masvidal, Dustin Poirier, and more are testaments to that claim.

Colby Covington will likely fight Jorge Masvidal next

‘Chaos’ and ‘Gamebred’ have been members of the American Top Team for almost a decade now. They are former training partners, best friends, and roommates. Both men sit at the top of the welterweight division. But their relationship has taken a severe dip. They tend to go after each other on social media platforms.
