Donald Trump is coming to UFC 296.
The former U.S. President is expected to be “front row” to cheer for Colby Covington, who challenges Leon Edwards for the welterweight title atop the UFC 296 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., Dec. 16, 2023 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I’m gonna make this division great again, then Donald Trump is gonna go take back the Oval Office and make America great again,” Covington told James Lynch. “I’ve talked to him, he will be at the fight, front row, in attendance. I can’t wait to have him out there and get his dragon energy, every time I see him dude I just wanna go run a marathon, there’s nothing that can stop me, like I feel invincible. It just gives me this sense of strength and energy. It’s just unstoppable so to have Donald Trump in the building, it’s gonna be amazing, I’m gonna put the belt around his waist. I’m willing to go through the fire and I’m gonna burn this dude. Donald Trump is gonna see that this country is great again and he’s ready to go take back the throne of his country again.”
No doubt UFC CEO Dana White will be part of that campaign.
Trump has been linked to UFC since the early days of MMA, thanks to his Atlantic City casinos, back when very few states would give Dana White the time of day. The promotion has continued to honor Trump for his loyalty over the years, even paying tribute by way of “Combatant in Chief” video … which was later removed.
he’ll hightail it out of there as soon as he sees its not in the bag after 2 rounds
Edwards’ TDS is gonna reach a whole new level with Trump sitting just a few feet away. Good for Colby
Imagine Trump’s reaction if Leon wins a controversial decision
SN checks out
Massive racial and political element to this fight, I love it.
Leon has TDS? lots on the line Colby!
God you are Americans are a bunch of lame fags with all this fake political and racial shit being exploited 24/7.
Interestingly, at that time, Trump will be due to finish his first trial (1st of 7). The NY civil trial.
“The trial is scheduled to begin on October 2, 2023 and to end by December 22, 2023,”
