Trump is known to be friends with UFC president Dana White, who has supported the 77-year-old during his past campaigns, and who walked Trump to his seat on Saturday night (8 July).
Trump soon walked over to the commentary desk, briefly interrupting analysts Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier while they were speaking.
Trump has attended numerous UFC events in the past, most notably for Nate Diaz’s fight with Jorge Masvidal in 2019, and most recently in April, when Israel Adesanya fought Alex Pereira in the main event.
At UFC 287, Trump sat with White and heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson. Masvidal fought that night and praised Trump during his post-defeat interview, while Kevin Holland jumped over the ring fence to speak to Trump earlier in the night.
