President Donald Trump appeared at the major UFC fight in Las Vegas on Saturday between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
Trump is known as a long-time friend of UFC President Dana White.
As Trump entered T-Mobile Arena, there were some boos that were quickly drowned out by massive hats of “U-S-A”, according to a report from Western Journal.
“But as those began to emerge, massive chants of “U-S-A” emerged to drown out the boo-birds,” Jack Davis of Western Journal writes.
UFC President Dana White added that Trump came to the fight with White simply as “two friends, who are fight fans, watching a fight.”

Western Journal commented on the fight:
The much-awaited fight between McGregor and Poirier ended swiftly.
McGregor’s left leg buckled, ultimately leading the referee to stop the fight and giving a TKO to Poirier, according to ESPN.
White later said the injury was to McGregor’s lower tibia.
“This is not over!” McGregor shouted before he was transported to a hospital, according to the New York Post.
Poirier said the rivals “are gonna fight again, whether it’s in the octagon or on the sidewalk.”
“The fight didn’t get finished,” he said. “You can’t have a fight finish that way. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out. Who knows how long Conor is out? When Conor is healed and ready to go, we’ll do the rematch, I guess. Poirier will do his thing until Conor is ready.”
The fight had been the third between McGregor and Poirier. Mcgregor won the first with a first-round knockout in 2014, according to the Post. Poirier won the second in January of this year with a second-round knockout, as ESPN reported.
