Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to be in attendance this Saturday night at UFC 264, according to Dana White.
The UFC president told TSN that Trump will make an appearance in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. The card features Conor McGregor meeting Dustin Poirier for a third time.
Trump became the first United States President to attend a live UFC event when he made an appearance in 2019 at UFC 244. That card took place in November that year from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
As Trump was rallying support against Joe Biden to remain President, he received plenty of support from White and the UFC. Fighters such as Jorge Masvidal stepped out to voice their support for Trump, who came up short vs. Biden.
45th U.S. President Donald Trump will be in attendance for UFC 264 this weekend per Dana White. As will Justin Bieber, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Mel Gibson, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker and many others.
