Donald Trump’s presence is not new during UFC events. However, surprisingly showing up amidst several legal troubles was not expected of him by fans. Despite Trump’s troubles with the law, it is unlikely to affect his welcome among fans. The former President is used to getting loud cheers during his attendance.

White has also publicly praised Trump for being one of the main reasons for UFC’s success. The indictment has not stopped Trump from supporting his long-time friend, Dana White. Trump might get a warm welcome from fans in Kaseya Center, Miami but is not safe from netizens’ criticism.

The UFC 287 is packed with promising fights, and fans are excited to witness it. Headlining the event is Israel Adesanya vs. Alex Pereira. Jorge Masvidal gets another shot after his three losses previously.
