Covington recently revealed details of his meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office. Regarding his White House visit and meeting with The President, Covington said:
“He greeted me, and just kept calling me “Champ” and I went in and shook his hand, and gave him my belt. He goes “Here’s your belt back,” and I told him, “no, Mr. President, this belt’s for you. You’re the champion of the people. I’m the Welterweight Champion of the UFC, but you sir are the champion of the people.”
