UFC President Dana White spoke in Las Vegas on Tuesday after DWCS 49 and lambasted the FBI for raiding Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home when so many others were released .
White was asked about the raid this week at Trump’s Florida home, but while he called it all “madness”, White also said he doesn’t know enough about what the FBI was doing or seeking to comment too deeply on the incident.
But when asked if he thinks the nation has become a ‘banana republic’, the UFC chief noted that he thinks the raid makes no sense when so many others have been released without persecution.
“I can think of, you know – without getting into politics right now and getting into all that fucking bullshit – there’s ten other houses that probably should have been raided before his and that didn’t happen,” he said. White said.
“There are 10 other people’s homes that should have been raided before his.”

The combat leader added that he has yet to speak with Trump since the FBI raid but intends to reach out in the coming days.
White is, of course, reputed to be close to Donald Trump. And in 2020, he campaigned for Trump, saying the nation needed Trump’s leadership.
White has also been chagrined by left-leaning sports media for refusing to ‘muzzle’ Trump supporter Colby Covington after the fighter was accused of racism for his comments about a black opponent.
He also faced heavy criticism in the media for refusing to force UFC fighters to get a coronavirus shot. And he continued to organize his events despite the hysteria over COVID at the start of the pandemic.
