UFC President Dana White may seem like an unconventional choice to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland: Just last December he told Yahoo Sports, "I'm not a political guy, at all, not a little bit."
So what is he doing here? He told TMZ this week the speech "will be about my relationship with Trump and the Trump that I know."
That makes sense given that the night's theme is about the economy and that White has spoken about Trump's early support of the ultimate fighting league in the past.
"Donald Trump was the first one to have us come out at the Trump Taj Mahal," he told TMZ. "Not only did we host the events there, but he actually showed up and supported the events. You'll never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump."
