three:12 PM PT — Colby Covington just beat Robbie Lawler’s ass in the Octagon, and won by means of unanimous selection. When he ultimately got a opportunity to gloat on the mic … he shouted out the Trumps — which was met with peppered boos from the crowd. It seems to be a single of the initially indicators of semi-rejection the Trump boys had been met with all through the afternoon.
1:50 PM PT — Colby Covington now has the complete assistance of all the Trumps, like the President … who just wished him great luck ahead of his fight with Robbie Lawler.
Dana White just chimed in as properly. Appears like he’s down with the Prez’s assistance.
Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric Trump, are finding the early bird unique at the UFC fight in New Jersey this weekend — ’cause they showed up hours ahead of the massive bout.
President Trump’s sons are sitting cage-side appropriate now at the Prudential Center in Newark for the UFC on ESPN five occasion, exactly where welterweights Colby Covington and Robbie Lawler are facing off for the principal occasion. Colby personally invited DTJ and co. — they are pals.
Sources connected to the occasion inform TMZ Sports that Don, Eric and their brood — which seems to incorporate Don’s GF, Kimberly Guilfoyle and at least a single kid — arrived Saturday about 10 AM PT … an hour just after the initially fights kicked off at 9 AM.
Kinda fascinating if you believe about it — that implies the Trumps are going to presumably stick about for a bit till the Covington/Lawler fight at noon … which tends to make for a jam-packed day of Octagon action. 5 matches have currently been decided, so you gotta visualize the Trump crew caught at least two of them, so far.
It also appears like ESPN followed via on their program to not preserve the well-known family members off camera — in spite of backlash it could or could not spark. They are all finding a healthier quantity of screen time at the moment on Television, which we had been told was anticipated ahead of the occasion.
As you know, the UFC is produced up of quite diverse fighters … and with their pops getting labeled a racist of late, the Trump boys’ inclusion in this occasion was anticipated to be a powder keg of sorts.
No troubles so far even though, from the crowd or otherwise … hopefully it stays that way.
