Former US President Donald Trump will be present at UFC 264 along with many other celebrities, UFC President Dana White announced Wednesday. The event is led by the battle between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, which will be competing for the third time in the octagon.
The full list of notable celebrities attending this event includes Justin Bieber, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Mel Gibson, Kourtney Kardashian, and Travis Barker.
Trump, for whom White once spoke out during the 2016 Republican National Convention, will sit in an octagonal shape at the event. It will be one of the ex-president’s few major public appearances since he took office in January, and he doesn’t seem concerned about any reaction from the crowd.
“He doesn’t care,” White said of his longtime friend TMZ. “He’s not that guy. He’s not hiding in a box somewhere.”
This will be the latest UFC event that Trump has attended. The last one was for UFC 244 at New York’s Madison Square Garden in November 2019. He was also on the side of the cage for that event.
“He and I have been friends for over 20 years,” White said of Trump on Friday. “And he’s a big fight fan, not just UFC. He’s a fight fan.
