The most powerful man in martial arts is backing President Trump to win reelection.
Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White called the president a “good friend” during a Trump campaign rally in Colorado on Thursday night.
“This guy is so loyal and such a good friend,” White said as Trump stood to the side watching. “He’s a fighter, he loves this country, he’s doing great things for this country, and we got to win this election again ladies and gentleman!”
Trump became the first sitting president to attend a UFC mixed martial arts fight when he witnessed Jorge Masvidal defeat Nate Diaz at Madison Square Garden in November.
After the fight, White claimed Trump wanted to attend a UFC fight the day after his 2016 election but had to reschedule.
Immediately following White’s speech, twitter began to erupt with talks of boycotting the UFC.
