Trump among long celebrity guest list for McGregor-Poirier fight
UFC 264 will have no shortage of famous attendees, according to promotion president Dana White.
In an interview with MMA Junkie, White said Saturday’s event – headlined by a trilogy between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier – is expected to have more celebrities in attendance than any event in UFC history. On Wednesday, White revealed a portion of the guest list to TSN.
Among those expected to sit cageside at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas are former President Donald Trump, pop superstar Justin Bieber, comedian Dave Chappelle, NBA star Kevin Durant, NFL star Odell Beckham Jr., rapper-turned-rocker Machine Gun Kelly, actress and model Megan Fox, reality series star Kourtney Kardashian, and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
A longtime friend of White, Trump became the first U.S. president past or present to attend a UFC event when he sat cageside at UFC 244 in November 2019. The event was headlined by the promotion’s lone “BMF” title fight between avid-Trump supporter Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz.
UFC 264 takes place July 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
