Donald Trump showed up at an MMA event in downtown Miami. See how the crowd reacted

Former President Donald Trump made an appearance at the UFC 287 mixed martial arts event in downtown Miami on Saturday, days after he became the first ex-U.S. president to face criminal charges stemming from hush money payments to an adult film star during the 2016 election.

Trump shook hands and waved to a cheering crowd at the Kaseya Center, where the Miami Heat plays basketball, before he sat in the cage-side between Dana White, UFC president, and singer Robert James Ritchie, known professionally as Kid Rock. Trump was also seen standing from his chair to greet his supporters who were among nearly 20,000 people in attendance.

“USA! USA!” some chanted.

Miami fighter Jorge Masvidal who retired after losing to Gilbert Burns Saturday night and ending his 20-year-old mixed martial arts career, fired up supporters of Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Masdival, 38, referred to Trump is the “greatest” president in the history of the world.”

“I love that guy!” he said. “We also got the greatest governor of all time here in Florida.”

The fighter also made a call to “replace” President Joe Biden in the White House. He also used an expletive when calling for Biden’s removal.

“Let’s take that you-know-who ... Let’s go Brandon [expletive] out of power and replace him,” he said.

Masdival then led Trump supporters in chanting “Let’s go Brandon,” a code phrase among Republicans to insult Biden.
