UFC fighter Colby Covington just won a big fight and afterwards, he had a message for the people of America.
Covington declared that the 2020 election will be a landslide wing for Trump, citing the excitement of the silent majority.
He seemed pretty psyched to say all of this.
Yahoo Sports reported:
Colby Covington defeats Tyron Woodley then stumps for Trump at UFC Vegas 11
Colby Covington got the better of Tyron Woodley in their UFC Vegas 11 main event on Saturday in Las Vegas. Though the fight ended in a TKO stoppage because of an injury in the fifth round, Covington had already dominated the majority of the bout.
The UFC Vegas 11 main event was years in the making; a heated grudge match between former teammates that are divided on nearly any issue that comes to mind, inside the Octagon or out…
In his post-fight speech, Covington used his platform to stump for U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election bid and take some shots at Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise. If you though that was a beating, just wait until Nov. 3 when Donald Trump gets his hands on Sleepy Joe (Biden). That’s gonna be a landslide,” said Covington.
“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, not these woke athletes. I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like Lebron James.”
