Colby Covington calls out Joe Biden and takes a call from Trump after victory over Tyron Woodley.
During his post-fight interview, Covington took aim at the Democratic presidential candidate giving quite an impassioned speech.
While draped in an American flag, Covington kicked off his interview with an unprompted rant that sounded like a campaign stop for Trump.
The 32-year-old said Trump's victory over former Vice President Joe Biden will be more impressive than his own win against Woodley.
Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise.
If you thought that was a beating, wait till November 3 when Donald Trump gets his hands on Sleepy Joe. That's gonna be a landslide.
Covington has been very open about his support for Trump. He also met the president in the White House, and he often wears a MAGA hat.
The California-native then dedicated his victory over 'The Chosen One' to 'all the first responders, all the military out there.'
Covington also gave his sensational rant at left-wing athletes who double as social justice warriors.
I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military out there.
This world would not be safe without you guys. You keep us safe, and not these woke athletes. I'm sick of these woke athletes and [these] spineless cowards like LeBron James.
But Covington didn't specify why exactly he was mad at James and others.
Trump Then Called Covington
After sitting down later for another interview with ESPN—while wearing a 'Keep America Great' hat—Covington took a call from Trump on speakerphone.
Trump told Covington:
You are a great fighter, man, I'll tell you. You make it so easy. I don't know how.
Congratulations. I wanted to watch that fight tonight. I wanted to watch it; you were great.
I'm proud of you, man. I'm a big fan, and I'm proud of you.
You're tough; you have the right spirits. So now go win the next one, and just keep it for a long time, right?
Just keep that championship for a long time. But you are something… I appreciated the shout-out tonight, too.
I'm your fan. You're my fan—two of a kind.
Covington later added on Twitter:
Nothing makes me prouder than fighting for the people who fight for America!!!
THANK YOU to all the brave men and women of law enforcement and the military!!! Thank You, @realDonaldTrump, for all the love and support!!
The silent majority is ready to make some noise on November 3rd!!
