The 45th U.S. President, Canadian superstar Justin Bieber, and comedian David Chappelle are among the famous fans expected to attend UFC 264 — headlined by Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 3 — according to Dana White.

A star-studded guest lineup is expected to attend the sold-out UFC 264: “Poirier vs. McGregor 3,” per Dana White, including 45th U.S. President Donald Trump and Justin Bieber.

The boss of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) told TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter on Wednesday that Trump will be in attendance inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the blockbuster trilogy match this weekend (Sat., July 10, 2021), which will stream live on ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV).

Trump most recently sat cageside for UFC 244 (and this writer has a photo of the back of his head to prove it) at Madison Square Garden in New York City in Nov. 2019. He became the first U.S. President to attend a UFC event. The card was headlined by Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson presenting the winner a ceremonial BMF belt.

White previously said that UFC 264 is set to have more celebrity fans in attendance than any other event in UFC history. The red carpet rollout also welcomes Bieber, comedian Dave Chappelle, NBA star Kevin Durant, NFL player Odell Beckham Jr., musician Machine Gun Kelly and his girlfriend, actress Megan Fox, director Mel Gibson, reality star Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend, drummer Travis Barker, among others.
