Dana White wasn’t afraid of the far left and gave his full support to President Trump during his fiery speech during the RNC.
While other sports leagues have blatantly shown their support for Biden, the UFC President had different plans.
Here is the energized UFC President’s full speech below:

Dan White’s speech was covered by Fox News and they had this to report:
Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White criticized calls to defund the police during a fiery speech in support of President Trump at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night.
“It blows my mind how quickly some of the leadership in this country has forgotten the critical role first responders play in our society,” White said. “Police departments and other law enforcement, even some fire departments, have faced opposition from many in this country, but they are always the people who are asked to step up when things are at their worst and put themselves at risk.”
“Come on, America — defunding these vital positions is not the answer,” White added.
In early April, Trump invited White and other executives from the sports and business world to join a task force assessing how to safely reopen the economy. The UFC president commended Trump’s work ethic and willingness to listen to outside perspectives on how to handle the pandemic.
The UFC was the first U.S. sports league to return to action in April, holding events without fans in attendance and strict health standards in place.
In his RNC speech, UFC President Dana White speaks out against the idea of defunding police, lauds President Trump for the job that he has done during the COVID-19 pandemic and particularly points to Trump working to get sports back up and running to restore a sense of normalcy.

The New York Post added these details to the story:
Ultimate Fighting Championship boss Dana White gave a no-holds-barred endorsement of President Trump Thursday night in remarks aired at the 2020 Republican National Convention on Thursday night.
“We need President Trump’s leadership now more than ever,” White, 51, boomed in a pre-recorded video.
The UFC boss KO’d lawmakers who support defunding police departments, raging that “it blows my mind how quickly some of the leadership in this country has forgotten the critical role first responders play in our society.”
“Come on, America! Defunding these vital positions is not the answer.”
Dana White had an absolutely electrifying speech.
It’s great to see a big figure in the sports world stick up for Trump.
