Saturday’s Ultimate Fighting Championship 287 event in Miami will likely be remembered far more for its politics than what happened in the octagon. With former President Donald Trump in attendance, ultimate fighting fans gave him a huge ovation and chanted “USA!” Trump fan Jorge Masvidal, a 20-year UFC star who lost his fight and immediately announced his retirement, praised the former president and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Fans chanted for the good old USA when the ex-president stood and waved to them. UFC fight audiences are also no friend to President Joe Biden, and they affirmed that sentiment as well.
As for the UFC fight card, Masvidal suffered his fourth consecutive loss, to welterweight rival Gilbert Burns. After his loss, he praised the ex-prez and Florida’s governor, during an interview with Joe Rogan. Pointing to Trump, he said:
"I wanted to say, greatest president in the history of the world sitting right there. I love that guy.
"We also got the greatest governor of all time here in Florida. Let’s keep Florida free, a red state. And let’s take back – you know who, Let’s go, Brandon motherf***er … replace him."
The “Let’s go Brandon” chant is a direct insult aimed at President Biden and actually means “F--- Joe Biden.”
Trump previously tweeted his support for Masvidal, calling him a “Great fight Champ!”
It had only been a few days earlier that Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of felony business fraud in a New York court room. The charges stemmed from alleged hush money payments he made to porn actress/stripper Stephanie “Stormy” Daniels, who claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006. He denied it ever happened.
Masvidal had also gotten into previous legal trouble when he attacked rival Colby Covington, another Trump supporter, and seriously injured him.
