The former president of the United States is known for being a huge UFC fan. Trump has attended some of the organization’s biggest fights, including Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov, as well as the UFC 295 one headlined by Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka. At the same time, the CEO of the UFC, Dana White, has shown his admiration for Trump after having previously spoken at the Republican National Convention in 2016 to endorse his presidency. And yet, when it came to Burr’s wife, she was not so fond of Trump. In the following clip, Burr’s wife can be seen sticking her middle fingers up towards the ex-president as he walked past.
In response, this is what Burr had to say.
“I love my wife. You know where you stand with her. The guy walked in the arena, everybody cheered, she gave him the finger, nobody got arrested. That’s why this country’s great. Everybody expressed themselves. Can we all be adults? I don’t know about you but I came there to go to the fights.
“I didn’t know I was going to the Republican National Convention. It’s like those Trump guys — they’re always going, ‘You snowflakes, eff your feelings,’ and all of that, and then you make fun of Trump and they’re like, ‘Oh my God, that’s so disrespectful,” Burr
agree or disagree, we have freedom of speech. Not sure why its a big deal. Its a bit disrespectful but its also protected.

Can we stop acting like she is the first person to flip him off. Who cares.
