UFC President Dana White told TMZ that Trump “won’t hide in a box” and would sit right behind him near the octagon.

“He and I have been friends for over 20 years,” White said ahead of the fight. “And he’s a huge fight fan, not just UFC. He’s a fight fan. He likes fighting like I like fighting.”

McGregor, like White, has voiced praise for Trump. The fighter tweeted that Trump was a “phenomenal president” in 2020 after the former president congratulated him for a win.

Poirier went on win by TKO at the end of the first round after McGregor injured his leg.
