Donald Trump is one of the most polarizing people ever, but that wasn’t the case at UFC 290 … the former president received heaps of love from the packed crowd in Las Vegas, including celebs and fighters!
The 45th President of the United States was captured on video walking into T-Mobile Arena flanked by longtime friend, UFC president Dana White, escorted by a gang of Secret Service Agents … where Trump received a raucous ovation.
After enough handshakes to put a campaign event to shame (including dapping up Raiders star Maxx Crosby), Trump and White made their way to their seats, Octagon-side.
The card featured a ton of great fights … and a bunch of the athletes showed Trump love after their scraps, including Bo Nickal, who beat Val Woodburn by 1st round knockout.
After the KO, Bo climbed the Octagon fence and had a brief chat with DT.
Jalin Turner‘s corner also had a conversation with Donald … with one of the lightweight contender’s coaches asking him, “Mr. Trump, are you winning again? Are you winning again? Yes! Please! We need it!”
In between the fights, Trump also found time to hang with Israel Adesanya, “Suga” Sean O’Malley and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
Of course, it’s not the first event Trump has attended since leaving the White House. He’s a legit fight fan … and has been around the sport of MMA since the early 2000s.
