Dana White Says UFC Had ‘Massive F–k Up’ By Not Showing Trump On Broadcast

As it turns out, someone actually had a worse night at UFC 264 than Conor McGregor. In fact, the entire UFC television production team was dealt a knockout blow from UFC president Dana White. White described the production teams’ error in not showing former President Donald Trump on the PPV broadcast as a “massive f—k up.”

Speaking to TMZ Sports, White explained that a plan was in place to show Trump on tv after cameras captured celebrities like Odell Beckham Jr. and 2 Chainz, but a glitch in the production truck got in the way.

“We were getting ready to show him right between the co-main and main events, I think you remember that we showed OBJ. We showed OBJ, then it was supposed to go to David Spade, 2 Chainz, and then the president, and we had some kinda glitch in the truck. Then the Conor fight ended up ending in the 2nd round so we never got a chance,” said White.

UFC 264 marked Trump’s first notable public appearance, outside of political rallies, since leaving office.

Upon being escorted to his floor seats, Trump received a warm reception from the sellout crowd that then chanted, “USA! USA! USA!”


Live video of Trump’s walk towards the Octagon, or even a quick shot of the former Commander in Chief amongst the crowd, would’ve created plenty of buzz. Something not lost on White, per TMZ Sports: “Let me tell you what, massive f*** up by my production team, but ya know, it’s live TV and these things happen.”

  1. Being that White and Trump are friends he sure as shit didn’t leave Trump out on purpose but if the tv truck has a lefty at the controls I wouldn’t put it past that guy. White should figure that shit out and fire whoever is responsible. That’s a pretty big “fuck up”.

  2. Definitely a massive f*ck up. Dana’s admission seems authentic.
    There will be many more oportunities.
    It was GREAT to see the mostly positive crowd response to the real President as he arrived…
