UFC CEO Dana White set to introduce Donald Trump at Republican National Convention

Dana White is once again stepping up to support his longtime friend Donald Trump.

The UFC CEO is expected to introduce Trump when he accepts his nomination to run for president at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee on Thursday, July 18.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the news citing campaign officials from Trump’s team.

This ultimately serves as White’s third appearance speaking for Trump ahead of an election after he appeared at both the 2016 and 2020 Republican National Conventions.

While White insists that he doesn’t dip his toes too far into politics, he’s become a constant ally to Trump, often inviting him to UFC events where he sits cageside to enjoy the fights.

White’s relationship with Trump goes back decades after the former president gave the UFC a home at his arenas in New Jersey when the promotion was struggling to find anyone willing to do business with them. The UFC boss often references that relationship whenever he discusses supporting Trump and his candidacy for president.

White even made a video for Trump that helped introduce him to TikTok after he launched an account following a UFC event where he was in attendance.

His loyalty to Trump has even extended into business dealings with the UFC after White revealed that he went off on a sponsor who requested that he take down a social media post showing support for the former president.

“I posted a video for Trump on my personal social media,” White said this past November. “One of our big sponsors called and said, ‘Take that down.’ You know what I said? Go f*ck yourself.

“You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works. I don’t even care who you’re voting for. It’s none of my f*cking business. F*ck you. Don’t ever f*cking call me and tell me who to vote for.”

White now puts his support for Trump on the main stage at the Republican National Convention as he introduces him just before he officially becomes the nominee ahead of the 2024 election.
