After a very heated Pre-fight Press Conference ahead of UFC 205 on Nov. 12, Dana White spoke to TMZ. The President of the UFC talked about the future President of the United States, Donald Trump.
White said Trump told him he’d be at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12 if he won the election.
“Donald originally told me that he would come to the fight if he won. I don’t think Donald really realized what his duties were gonna be had he won. Because I think he’s meeting with Obama today. So I don’t know, we’ll see.”
Dana was right, Trump was in Washington, D.C., on Thursday meeting with President Obama. As we stated yesterday, White spoke at the Republican National Convention and publicly supported Trump’s presidential candidacy. They have been friends for more than 15 years, since Trump opened the doors to his Atlantic City casinos to the UFC when no one else would.
