President Trump’s visit to Las Vegas gave the MMA world one mind-blowing photo

On Sunday, President Donald Trump visited Las Vegas to speak at a campaign rally, and the night provided MMA fans with a few memorable moments.

By now, you’ve probably had a chance to see Colby Covington and his somewhat awkward handshake with President Trump.

You might also have seen President Trump give a special shout out to not only his good friend, UFC president Dana White, but also Covington, UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje, retired former double UFC champion Henry Cejudo and “great guy” Ali Abdelaziz, head of Dominance MMA.

But it seems the most mind-blowing moment of the entire rally took place behind the scenes. Behold, the most unlikely group photo of all-time:

Sure, by now, we’re all used to seeing Trump and White together. Trump and Covington in the same room isn’t even quite as jarring of a visual as it once was.

But “Chaos,” the man who coined the moniker “Ali Abdel-a-sleaze,” posing for a group photo with Abdelaziz and his clients? The same Abdelaziz who was charged with battery for a March 2019 incident with Covington in a Las Vegas hotel?

One has to assume Secret Service agents are just out of frame on both sides. Or maybe White’s pose is more of a security position than a casual embrace? And what must Gaethje – now a primary training partner of Covington rival Kamaru Usman – be thinking with Covington’s hand on his shoulder?

So much going on in one photo.

Mind. Blown.
