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.
45th U.S. President Donald Trump will be in attendance for UFC 264 this weekend per Dana White. As will Justin Bieber, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Mel Gibson, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker and many others.— Aaron Bronsteter (@aaronbronsteter) July 7, 2021
