More, even more it appeared on the night of the battle. The actors of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” have been released, along with Mel Gibson, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Miles Teller and many others.
Trump, who White previously spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention, will sit on the octagon side for the occasion. This will be one of the few public demonstrations that the former president has held since leaving office in January, and he seems unconcerned about the crowd’s response.
“He doesn’t care,” White said of his longtime friend, according to TMZ. “He’s not that person. He’s not hiding in a box somewhere.”
This will be the last UFC Trump event to attend alone. The last one was at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York City in November 2019. He also sat next to the castle of the event.
“She and I have been friends for over 20 years,” White said of Trump on Friday. ” Not only just UFC, he’s a big fan of fighting,,. He’s a fighting fan. He likes to fight like I like to fight.”
