“Another great champion, Henry Cejudo,” Trump said of Cejudo, who previously held the UFC flyweight and bantamweight titles. “One of the best in the world. “You won the champion twice, right Henry? He won it twice. Don’t mess with him.”

“[Gaethje has] a tremendous fight coming up against the number one rated pound-for-pound fighter,” Trump, added, shifting his attention to Gaethje’s UFC 254 fight with undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. “We’re going to be watching. It’s right before the election, but we’re going to be watching it, okay? I’ll be watching. You better believe it. It’s going to be an incredible fight.”

“He used to walk into that ring—he still does—and he’s as good as there is in the world,” Trump said of Covington. “No. 1 in the world. You don’t want to pick a fight with him at a bar.”

Donald Trump on Dana White

It’s a well-known fact that UFC president Dana White is a close aide of Donald Trump and both personalities have praised each other on numerous occasions.

Here’s what Donald Trump said about Dana White:

“I gave [White and the UFC] a place a long time ago,” Trump said about letting the UFC promote events out of one of his venues many years ago. “All I know, is just like we have outside, we had lines. I was like ‘what the hell is going on here, Dana? This place is packed!’ We were packed, we had thousands of people.

“I was so nice, I said ‘let’s do it again, Dana.’ We did it again, and again, and again, and it became the UFC,” Trump added. “And he sold it, and had a big chunk of it, and he got four billion dollars — what he sold it, four billion! That’s not too bad, Dana!

“He’s an incredible guy, and he also loves his fighters. He wants to take care of his fighters, and he brought some of them, among the best.” (H/T – BloodyElbow)

Donald Trump will be re-running for the presidential elections taking place later this year on the Republican ticket against Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
