A former U.S. president will join a long list of celebrity names expected to attend UFC 264, per Dana White.

In a recent interview with UFC broadcast partner TSN White said Donald Trump will be in attendance for the pay-per-view event on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Trump, who this past November lost the presidency to Joe Biden, was the first president to attend a UFC event in November 2019 for UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York. At a rally this past September in Nevada during his reelection bid, Trump shouted out White and praised the UFC president for his business acumen.

“He is so smart, so tough, so cunning,” Trump said about White during the rally. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. I’ve been a friend of his.

“He also loves his fighters. He wants to take care of his fighters and he brought some of them along, the best.”

Additionally, White revealed that other celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Mel Gibson, Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker and many additional names are expected to witness the star-studded event.

UFC 264 will be headlined by the highly anticipated trilogy fight between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.
