Dana White is known to be a very controversial figure when it comes to the proper payment of UFC stars. He was called out for this fact many times by the likes of Jake Paul. However, it cannot be dismissed that Dana White has made UFC what it is today as it remains the most popular promotion for MMA in the world right now.
On the other hand, former President of the United States Donald Trump is a highly controversial figure and is known to do a lot of bizarre things from time to time. He has his fair share of haters and it is not hard to see why.
Dana White and Donald Trump have known each other for a long time and have also given support to each other over the years. His Atlantic City Hotel and Casino and Trump Taj Mahal had hosted UFC 28, UFC 30, and UFC 31 in the early 2000s.
While speaking with Pat McAfee, UFC President Dana White recalled the time he made a bad prediction about a UFC star. Due to this, Donald Trump still makes fun of him to this day.
“I was with President Trump when he was President. He came to the fight. We were in the back and I am like, ‘Hey, Mr. President, this guy right here, this guy right here, he’s going to be the guy.
And then we sat there and watched him get his a*s whooped. And he still busts my ba**s about that until today. He still brings that up and talks about it.”
The UFC will continue to be a success and Donald Trump will always have a good relationship with Dana White no matter what by the looks of it.
