A TMZ Sports stringer caught up with UFC president Dana White, whose friend Donald Trump is now president elect. Although not a political person, White had spoken at the Republican convention in favor of The Donald.

“Donald originally told me that he would come to the fight if he won,” said White. “I don’t think Donald really realized what his duties were going to be had he won. I think he’s meeting with Obama today. And then … I don’t know, we’ll see.”

“Listen, no pressure. No pressure to come. But it wouldn’t suck if he came.”

“He’s been a friend of mine for 15, 16 years. I’m happy for him. … He’s the president now. You know what I expect from him? I expect nothing. He went out there, he did it, he worked hard, he campaigned, he’s the president now. He won.

“I don’t expect to be on the phone with him every day or anything like that. I’m happy for him. And hopefully he gets in there and does some good things for this country.”

White was in New York for UFC 205, which takes place at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, November 12th.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
