Trump Stood Out At An Already Star-Studded UFC 264

While UFC 264 was a star-studded event all around, with everyone from comedian Dave Chappelle to pop star Justin Beiber and actress Megan Fox in attendance, Trump stole the show when he entered the arena to loud applause and chants of “U-S-A” from the crowd. 

Trump is a longtime friend of UFC president Dana White.

Rogan discussed his interaction with Trump and also the exchange between the former president and his broadcast partner, UFC legend Daniel Cormier.

Rogan On Meeting Trump: ‘I Should Have Got A Selfie With Him, F***!’

“[Met] him when I was working,” Rogan explained. “I had my headphones on and I said ‘Hey, how’re you doing man? Nice meeting you,’ shook his hand and got a video of it.”

“It’s kinda hilarious,” Rogan said. “He’s like ‘Oh you do a tremendous job, amazing job, good job.’

Rogan continued, “Then he said to Daniel Cormier who was sitting next to me, who is a former light heavyweight and the former heavyweight champion, and [Trump] goes ‘I did not want to fight this guy, I did not want to fight this guy.’”

But Rogan admitted he did regret something about the brief meeting with Trump–and was not shy in expressing how much he regretted it.

“I should have got a selfie with him, f***!,” Rogan exclaimed.

“What are you going to do?” he said. “It was weird. It was very weird.”

Rogan noted the excited for Trump in the arena that night, “When he walked in though, I’m telling you man they cheered the f*** out of him.”

Hollywood actress Megan Fox made similar comments about the event. 

 “I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber, [Donald] Trump was also in my row. And I’ve never seen a secret service person before,” Fox added. “So, he [Trump] had like 30 secret service with him.”

The actress then added, “He was a legend.”

Fox noted, “That arena was, like, very supportive of Trump when he came in.”
