The video starts with Colby Covington making a grand entrance via helicopter at the Trump International Property. He thanked former US President Donald Trump for allowing him to shoot this interview with ESPN MMA. The interview goes on as usual, with ESPN MMA’s Brett Okamoto asking him questions about the fight and his plans for the future. Covington further insinuated that there are levels to the UFC fighters and said this:

Probably most fighters you talk to can’t even find an Uber ride to get here but I’m showing up in a helicopter. I think that shows who runs business around here and who is the biggest and best business in the UFC at the welterweight division right now.
