Former United States President Donald Trump has had a ton going on in his personal life recently, most notably being indicted by a New York court earlier this week. However, it seems like he took some time to make a public appearance at UFC 287 on Saturday night.

Trump was seen earlier on Saturday enjoying a round of golf at his course in Miami. UFC 287 is also taking place in Miami at the Kaseya Center, and Trump made the trip to enjoy the night of fights.

The 45th President was seen sitting alongside UFC President Dana White, Kid Rock, and Mike Tyson sitting cage side enjoying the night of fights.

Fans in attendance took notice of his appearance, chanting USA as he walked to his cage side seat.

One fighter in particular appeared to notice Trump’s presence in the arena. UFC welterweight Kevin Holland got an impressive TKO victory over Santiago Ponzinibbio and jumped the cage to talk to both Dana White and Trump cage side afterward.

Trump is obviously as polarizing a personality as it gets, which led to a number of different reactions from the sports world on his appearance Saturday night.

Trump and Dana White have long been known to be very close friends, so it isn’t exactly shocking to see him in attendance.

He is also probably there to support UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal, who is a supporter of his who he met at the Mar-A-Lago Hotel earlier this week. Masvidal is slated to fight fellow ranked welterweight contender Gilbert Burns in the co-main event.
