Colby Covington visits Donald Trump's sons at Trump Tower

Colby Covington became UFC interim welterweight champion more than 11 months ago, was stripped of the title three months later, but he still walks around with his belt like he’s the undisputed king.

That distinction, of course, belongs to Kamaru Usman, whom Covington should be fighting before year’s end. Until then, though, Covington’s going to keep doing Covington stuff. You know what we’re talking about.

This week, that has included taking in Fleet Week in New York, where Covington has spent some time with U.S. Navy officers and Marines. But no trip to the Big Apple would be complete for Covington without visiting Trump Tower, which he did and apparently hung out with President Donald Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric. A UFC belt also made an appearance, not surprisingly.

Between visiting his sons at Trump Tower and President Trump himself last year at the White House, at this point maybe Covington is welcomed any time he wants?
