Dana White’s bromance with Donald Trump has been well documented.
The President of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and the President of the United States first came together for both UFC 30 and UFC 31 at Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, back when mixed martial arts (MMA) was unwelcome in most territories.
That relationship remained strong as the promotion became a household name and earned legal sanctioning in all 50 states, including New York, prompting White to stump for Trump at the Republican National Convention back in 2016 (video).
I guess “Combatant In Chief” is the “badass” documentary White was talking about.
“It’s the 25th anniversary of the UFC and we’re doing 25 documentaries with 25 badass directors for the 25th anniversary and one of them is the story of how President Trump let us come to the Taj (Mahal) for the first fight and he and I went to the residence after that, and he and I both shot for the documentary,” White told UFC Unfiltered.
The documentaries can be viewed on the UFC Fight Pass digital network.
In addition to the media campaign, UFC celebrated 25 years in combat sports with its UFC Fight Night 139 event last weekend in Denver, Colorado, which had Yair Rodriguez melt Chan Sung Jung in the featherweight main event (watch it).
