Professional sports became intertwined with the world of politics thanks to the woke Left.
But Americans are fed up.
And now the UFC boss made this startling admission about Donald Trump.
UFC President Dana White is a well-known Trump supporter.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the UFC was not the juggernaut that it is today.
John McCain smeared the sport as “human cockfighting,” and states like New York tried to ban it entirely under the false belief that it was a modern-day gladiatorial battle.
Back then, Trump reached out to White and said the UFC could host its events at his venues with no questions asked.
Their friendship was born, and White gladly endorsed Trump for President in 2016, 2020, and 2024.
UFC is now a stronghold of Trump support, as a viral video from UFC 295 showed Trump, White, Tucker Carlson, and Kid Rock entering a sold-out Madison Square Garden to a thunderous standing ovation from the 16,000 fans in attendance.
Appearing on comedian Theo Von’s podcast, Dana White discussed his support for Trump.
White told Von that one of the UFC’s biggest sponsors demanded he take down a post supporting Trump from his personal social media page.
The UFC President said he simply told the sponsor’s representatives to “go f**k yourself” and refused to bend the knee to the woke corporations demanding he censor his own personal support for Trump.
“One of our big sponsors called and said, ‘Take that down,’” White told Von. “I said, ‘Go f**k yourself.’ You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works. I don’t even care who you’re voting for. It’s none of my f*****g business. F**k you.”

There is a growing backlash against companies for wading into the culture wars.
Bud Light and Target lost billions of dollars by going woke and promoting transgenderism.
Dana White had his own experience with a woke company breathing down his neck.
And he refused to play ball.
