Woodley is back to defend his welterweight championship for the first time since UFC President Dana White blasted a winning performance last summer, when Woodley said he injured a shoulder during the fight. Since that event in California about 13 months ago, Woodley had surgery and dismissed an event for an interim welterweight title as a bout for a “boo-boo belt.” The 36-year-old didn’t seem as interested in taking on the sanctioning body as he prepared to face undefeated challenger Darren Till at UFC 228 on Saturday night.

Tyron Woodley will have plenty of motivation when he steps into the Octagon against Colby Covington on Saturday.

Part of that motivation will apparently be to "Make Racists Catch the Fade Again."

As TMZ Sports shared, Woodley wore a red hat with those words on it as a way of mocking Covington's "Make America Great Again" hat the latter wears in support of the sitting president.

According to TMZ, Covington loves Donald Trump and was even a VIP guest of the former host of Celebrity Apprentice during a rally in Nevada on Saturday. That surely caught Woodley's eyes given his latest headwear choice.

Both will be looking to bounce back from losses, as Covington fell to Kamaru Usman in his last bout. Woodley lost to Gilbert Burns and Usman in his last two.
