Donald Trump still have a ravenous fanbase and it is becoming more and more obvious with every public appearance that he makes. At UFC 295, he going Tucker Carlson, Don Jr., Kid Rock, and Dana White as he entered to watch one of the fastest growing sports in America, Mixed Martial Arts.
It’s become commonplace in sporting events to show off the celebrities that are in attendance during downtimes in play. Taylor Swift has made that incredibly clear by becoming possibly the most seen person during Kansas City Chiefs football games as rumors and speculation continues to swirl surrounding her relationship with Travis Kielce. But, this isn’t about her.
Donald Trump entered the stadium, walking to his front row seats to see a live look at the action in the Octagon, and the crowd’s noise was absolutely deafening. It is impossible to think that any other president in recent memory would receive this kind of raucous applause when entering a sporting event with his friends and family.
The UFC has been willing to embrace Donald Trump and his interest in the sport which has endeared the league to millions of Americans who want to watch a sport that declines to virtue signal, even when woke networks like ESPN clamor for a political display during every athletic event.

In the video above, Trump can be seen giving a stately wave and head nod to the thousands of fans cheering for him. He may not be fighting in the ring, but he will most likely have the loudest entrance of the year for the UFC.
He was also walking in with Tucker Carlson, who recently has been rumored as a potential Vice President option for Trump’s 2024 run. When asked whether he would consider Carlson as a VP pick, Trump weed poetic about his admiration for the former Fox News Host.
Trump said, “Well, first of all, you know, I did my first, you could call it counter-programming, but I will call it that. But uh, Tucker wanted to do an interview during the first debate. And I think you know, because this is what your business is, we broke every record, monster in history. Yeah, I think it just hit over 300 million people.
“But it was for that evening, over 207 million, it then got to 275 within a day or two. And the biggest ever was Oprah’s interview with Michael Jackson, which was 125 million. So we almost doubled it. Now, who would have thought that was going to happen?
“The debate the last debate, they had had the lowest audience in the history of presidential debates. I don’t know if you know it, and I think the one tonight is not it’s on tonight, and I don’t even talk about it.”
Maybe fans are reading way too much into the budding partnership between Carlson and Trump, but it is also possible that something is brewing here. And the noise of the applause that the tandem received at the UFC is a sign that a Trump-Carlson ticket could be a powerhouse next year.
