UFC’s Colby Covington Rips The “Filthadelphia Eagles” For Disrespecting Trump & The Country (VIDEO)
Colby Covington is a man who speaks his mind whenever he wants and does so unapologetically.
On Saturday, Covington had an impressive win over Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC 225 at the United Center in Chicago. That was really just the start of his night.
After giving himself props for making the Welterweight division great again, he stated he was going to visit his President in the White House. Covington then proceeded to throw shots at the Philadelphia Eagles for not doing the same and disrespecting the country by kneeling during the National Anthem.
It should be noted that no players on the Eagles kneeled last season during the Anthem.
“I told everybody I was going to make the welterweight division great again,” Covington declared at the post-fight press conference. “And now I’m going to celebrate how a real American should celebrate winning a world a title, and that’s going to the White House to see Mr. Donald Trump and put this on his desk! Unlike the Filthadelphia Eagles disrespecting our flag and kneeling for the national anthem.”
