Dana White doesn’t give a damn about what people think of him.
About a week ago, the UFC President was present at a Colorado rally and got introduced by Donald Trump to come up and speak briefly to the crowd.
“I’ve known this man for 20 years. We’ve actually become even closer since he’s become the President of the United States,” White said. “When somebody becomes the President of the United States, you don’t ever expect to hear from them again. And I understand it. It absolutely makes sense.
“This guy is so loyal and such a good friend. Every time I see him — I saw him today. When I met him on Air Force 1, the first thing he said to me was, ‘How is your family?’ Good man, very loyal and a very good friend.”
White caught hell online for supporting Trump, but doesn’t care about losing fans because of it, as he told TMZ Sports when presented with that information.
“I wasn’t really campaigning, he called me and asked me if I wanted to go to Colorado,” White said … “he said, ‘Wanna go to Colorado?’ So, I said, ‘Yeah.’ So, we flew over to Colorado for the day and then back to Vegas.”
“We were just hanging out and talking fights.”
“I can’t say it enough. This guy, when I say this guy I’m talking about President Trump … is such a good friend and such a loyal amazing guy. He’s a great guy, been a friend of mine for a long time.”
As for the UFC fans who were upset about it:
“I could give a st. I don’t give a shit. If you don’t like me because I’m friends with this guy, that’s your problem, not mine.”
