Trump Attends UFC 299 With Daughter Ivanka After Georgia Rally

Former President Donald Trump appeared at UFC 299 in Miami on Saturday after holding a campaign rally in Georgia.

With rock star Kid Rock‘s “American Badass” playing, Trump walked into the Kaseya Center alongside UFC CEO Dana White to loud cheers.

A fan of UFC and having attended various fights over the years, Trump was joined at Saturday’s event by his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner. A number of fights took place in the octagon, including Sean O’Malley defeating Marlon “Chito” Vera in the main event.

According to a Bloomberg reporter, at one point of the event, the crowd chanted “F*** Joe Biden.”

The former president posed for a photo with NFL players Nick Bosa and Joe Burrow. He was also seen shaking hands with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and former ESPN host Sage Steele.

Steele parted ways with ESPN last year after settling a lawsuit that alleged the network retaliated against her for making negative comments about COVID vaccine mandates and former President Barack Obama.

Trump is in the middle of running another campaign for the White House. After a dominant performance on Super Tuesday, Trump all but secured the GOP nomination when Nikki Haley dropped out of the race.

In Rome, Georgia, earlier on Saturday, Trump talked about the election and said he would “demand justice” for Laken Riley, the 22-year-old nursing student who was allegedly murdered by an illegal immigrant in Georgia last month.

He also spoke about the UFC, according to the Daily Mail. “It’s the closest thing I can see really reflective of the election process that we have in this country, the UFC fights,” Trump said. “That may be a little tamer than the election business.”

Trump gave a shout-out to White, who last year told comedian and podcaster Theo Von that he once told one of the sponsors for his mixed martial arts organization to “go f*** yourself” when directed by the unnamed company to remove a post on his personal social media account that included Trump.

“Dana White has done a great job,” Trump said. “I hope he doesn’t run for office against me. He’s done a fantastic job. It’s an easier business than politics.”
