Donald Trump set to attend UFC 244 this weekend just days after president is booed by fans at MLB World Series

The Sun Sports 1 month ago

DONALD TRUMP is set to attend UFC 244 in New York City on Saturday night – just days after he was fiercely booed at a World Series baseball game.

The American president ignored deafening jeers and chants of “lock him up” when he showed up to Game 5 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals with his wife Melania on Sunday.

But the opinion splitting president has not let the reception put him off sports and will head to the flagship MMA event on Saturday, according to MMA Junkie.

Jorge Masvidal takes on Nate Diaz in a welterweight showdown at Madison Square Garden in the early hours of Sunday morning.

And Trump – who is expected to stay in nearby Trump Tower after the fight – is expected to be in the crowd for the headline event.

UFC president Dana White is friendly with Trump which could explain his plan to attend.

Trump – who is currently the subject of an impeachment inquiry – is no stranger to sporting appearances having previously starred in WWE in 2007.

The White House chief famously shaved Vince McMahon’s head during Wrestlemania XXIII.

And the 73-year-old also attacked legendary basketball star LeBron James last year when he claimed a TV interviewer made James look smart which “isn’t easy to do”.

If Masvidal can overcome Diaz in front of the president on Saturday, it will complete a remarkable turnaround for the American.

Masvidal’s coach at American Top Team Mike Brown exclusively told SunSport how his man was once so broke he would sleep under the ring in his gym and also fought Kimbo Slice in street brawls.
