Trump retweets footage of UFC star Jorge Masvidal saying he's a 'bad mother****** in his own way' after attending bloody UFC bout
UFC star Jorge Masvidal called President Trump a "bad mother******" after the latter attended a bloody UFC 244 bout between the Miami-born fighter and MMA veteran Nate Diaz.
The president did not miss the opportunity to retweet footage of Masvidal's comments on Sunday after attending a series of Ultimate Fighting Championship matches at the spectacular Madison Square Garden, the New York Post reports.
Masvidal scored a technical knockout over Diaz after doctors stopped the match owing to a bloody cut over the latter's eye socket during the night's main event.
"Great fight Champ!" the president wrote, congratulating Masvidal for his stunning victory.
After heaping praise on the president, Masvidal was himself awarded the "Baddest mother****** in the Game" as he stood victorious within the octagon. The packed arena saw Trump, his two adult sons, and a group of Republican lawmakers attend the star-studded event.
"No matter what your views are on Trump as a president, the guy's a bad mother******, man," Masvidal is heard saying in a brief video clip. "The money that he's made, the obstacles that he's conquered, he's a bad mother****** in his own way, you know?"
"No matter what your political views are," he added.
Hollywood actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson entered the octagon post-match to award Masvidal the prestigious BMF belt.
Meanwhile, Trump tweeted about the swarming crowd at the event, likening it to a "Trump Rally."
The president's arrival was met with resounding cheers across the arena before his sons Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump both pushed back at a number of mainstream media outlets claiming he was attacked with boos and jeers and posted video footage from the event in their defense.
"Walking into Madison Square Garden last night with @DanaWhite for the big Championship fight was a little bit like walking into a Trump Rally," the president wrote. He has been a great friend of the Ultimate Fighting Championship head for years.
"Plenty of MAGA & KAG present. Great energy. Fantastic job Dana! Heading to D.C. and then to Kentucky for a big Rally," Trump added.
