Donald Trump was given a mostly warm welcome as he took his seat ringside at Madison Square Garden for UFC 295, an ultimate fighting championship match, on Saturday night.

But not everyone in the New York crowd was thrilled to see the former president.

Cameras captured actress Nia Renee Hill, the wife of comedian Bill Burr, appearing to flash two middle fingers at the former president as he looks out at the audience, oblivious to the gesture.

Mr Trump entered the arena after the preliminary bouts accompanied by former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and UFC president Dana White.

His son Donald Trump Jr and Kid Rock were also among the 19,000-strong crowd.

Mr Trump, a regular UFC attendee, had earlier appeared at a rally in New Hampshire on Saturday.

The former president holds a commanding lead in the Republican presidential primary despite facing 91 indictments in four separate criminal trials and the prospect of having his business empire broken up from a civil fraud trial in New York.

His absence from the recent GOP presidential debate and continuing hold over voters was parodied in Saturday Night Live’s cold open.
