While the live broadcast missed showing Donald Trump during the UFC 264, which Dana White considers a “major f*** up” from his broadcast team, several photos and videos of Trump entering the building and enjoying the fight show went viral on the internet. However, what caught the most attention was Donald Trump meeting former welterweight title challenger and BMF titleholder Jorge Masvidal.
“Dana here he is.” Trump can be seen saying as he looks towards Jorge Masvidal while entering the building. “Jorge, I swear to god, he was just talking about you,” White says in the video as Donald Trump and Jorge Masvidal share a hug. “That’s the champ, give him a lot of money,” Trump says as he leaves with Dana White in a candid moment for fight fans.
Earlier, Donald Trump became the first US president to come to a UFC event after he attended the hugely anticipated BMF title fight between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz inside Madison Square Garden back at UFC 244.
