It cannot be denied that Dana White has made UFC what it is today as it remains the most popular promotion for MMA in the world right now. The world of MMA has certainly grown exponentially since its humble beginnings a couple of decades ago.
Several celebrities attended the UFC 264 event and that included former President of the United States of America Donald Trump. Fans were not really happy when they first came to know about him attending the event.
However, Donald Trump wasn’t actually shown during the UFC 264 broadcast at all. While speaking to TMZ Sports, Dana White talked about Donald Trump not appearing on the broadcast, as he blamed a ‘glitch in the truck’ for it not happening.
“We were getting ready to show him right between the co-main and main events, I think you remember that we showed OBJ. We showed OBJ, then it was supposed to go to David Spade, 2 Chainz, and then the president, and we had some kinda glitch in the truck. Then the Conor fight ended up ending in the 2nd round so we never got a chance.
Let me tell you what, massive f*** up by my production team, but ya know, it’s live TV and these things happen.”
Dana White stated that Donald Trump deserves to be shown on TV, regardless of political affiliation. For many fans, Donald Trump not appearing during the UFC 264 broadcast was certainly a good thing and that is not changing.
