Dana White calls Donald Trump not making UFC 264 broadcast ‘a massive f—k up’

Ultimate Fighting Championship President, Dana White, is pissed that 45th U.S. President Donald Trump did not make the broadcast for UFC 264: “Poirier vs. McGregor 3.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, is beet red over Donald Trump’s orange complexion being left off the UFC 264 pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast.

Okay, there is some hyperbole in the opening sentence, but White revealed that Trump’s snub on last Saturday’s broadcast was a big mistake. Trump was one of the marquee celebrity guests in attendance for UFC 264, which took place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, last weekend (Sat., July 10, 2021), with Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 3 serving as the main event. Eyebrows were raised when Trump — a major supporter of UFC and a personal friend of White’s — was absent from the broadcast.

“We were getting ready to show him right between the co-main and main events,” White told TMZ Sports (h/t New York Post). “We had some kind of glitch in the truck. Then the Conor fight ended up ending in the second round so we never got a chance.

“Let me tell you — massive f–k up by my production team,” the UFC boss continued. “But it’s live TV and these things happen.”
