UFC 287 was filled with celebrities in the electrifying arena, and one name that is worth mentioning is Donald Trump, who happened to be there for the main card. This isn’t the first time the former president has shown up for a UFC event; he is passionate about the sport and loves watching UFC matches.
Jorge Masvidal showed a lot of respect for the former president in the post-fight interview; that is perhaps the only thing he and his former friend Colby Covington share in common: admiration for Donald Trump. Here’s what Masvidal said in the post-fight interview “I wanted to say, greatest president in the history of the world sitting right there, I love that guy; let’s take that you know who ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ motherf**er out of power and replace him.
If I can get it just one time, Let’s go, Brandon! Let’s go, Brandon!”.
Dana White on Donald Trump’s interest in the UFC
Donald Trump and Dana White share a friendly, respectful bond; it is exciting to see Donald Trump show up at UFC events; whenever he does, the crowd is energized by his appearance.
“So this guy calls me twice a month and will talk to me for an hour about fights that have happened since the last time we talked,” White said, as quoted by mmamania.com. “And he knows everybody. He knows what they did and who they fought last.
He’s a huge fight fan. Loves this stuff”. It will be very interesting to see Donald Trump be a part of future UFC events. The next major event is UFC 288, where Aljamin Sterling will be defending his belt against Henry Cejudo, who is coming out after a long phase of retirement, and the co-main event will be featuring Charles Oliveira and Beneil Dariush, an action-packed event that all UFC fans are eagerly waiting for- less than a month left for it to begin.
