On Saturday, June 1, Donald Trump, the former US President, showed up at the Prudential Center in Newark to a huge fan reception during the UFC 302 pay-per-view. Just days after the 77-year-old was found guilty in a hush money trial, he was seen walking inside the arena alongside the UFC President, Dana White, before greeting Joe Rogan at ringside.

When Donald Trump was making his presence felt at UFC 302, Jon Anik, the commentary partner of Joe Rogan, spoke on the live broadcast about how the former US President is “a rabid mixed martial arts fan.” A couple of years ago, Dana White called Donald Trump “one of the most stand-up, solid dudes that I have ever met in my life. If he gives you his word, done.”

Donald Trump acknowledges “F*** Joe Biden” chants during UFC 302

During the UFC 302 pay-per-view, the fans inside the Prudential Center in Newark were chanting “F*** Joe Biden,” and Donald Trump was quick to acknowledge it. Joe Biden, the current President of the USA, is currently in the final few months of his first-term, and he is running for re-election, while Donald Trump is expected to challenge him for it.

Notably, in the main event of UFC 302, Islam Makhachev of Russia successfully defended his UFC Lightweight Championship against Dustin Poirier. He managed to earn a submission win over the American, employing the D’arce choke at 2:42 in the fifth and final round of their championship match.

In the co-main event, Sean Strickland got the better of Paulo Costa by a split decision in the UFC middleweight division, to get a step closer to recapturing the championship.
