(Spoiler Alert! If you don't want to know the result of the Poirer v. McGregor main event, don't read the end of this article.)

Patriotic chants of "USA" could be heard as former President Donald Trump made his way to his seat at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 264 event Saturday evening. Trump could be seen waving to the crowd as he walked through the Las Vegas crowd.

Many accounts across Twitter posted video of the occurrence confirming the initial reports of the chants happening.




UFC 264 was slated to be one of the biggest fight events of 2021, with the main event featuring polarizing lightweight fighter Conor McGregor facing off against U.S. fighter Dustin Poirer. The fight ended with Poirer scoring a technical knockout (TKO) after a doctor stopped the fight between the first and second rounds following McGregor severely injuring his left ankle towards the end of the opening round.
