Several UFC fighters, including Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal, have thrown their support behind Donald Trump following his allegations of election fraud.

Donald Trump and former United States Vice President Joe Biden have been in a tight race to determine the country’s next President.

Trump had originally opened as a big underdog to Biden, but those odds swayed heavily in the President’s favor in the late evening of November 4.

However, by the morning of November 5, the odds had shifted back in favor of Joe Biden. Despite the fact that a number of the key swing states were still in play, Donald Trump eluded to victory in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The brash Presidential candidate also claimed that the Democrats were still busy attempting to steal the election.

Trump has since lawyered up and plans to have recounts done in a number of the hotly contested states. Many of Trump’s supporters have backed his conspiracy claims and that includes several UFC Fighters.

As seen below, the likes of Colby Covington, Jorge Masvidal and many other fighters have called “foul play” on social media in hopes of earning Donald Trump a “fair” chance at re-election.

Former UFC champion Tito Ortiz, who won a city council seat in Huntington Beach this election, also tossed his support behind Donald Trump.

Although UFC President Dana White has been a big supporter of Donald Trump, even he could not help but roast Ortiz for calling for a recount in California.
