Jorge Masvidal dominated Nate Diaz in front of President Donald Trump, who was in the crowd for Saturday night’s UFC 244 event at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
But before Masvidal won the inaugural BMF belt, for the “baddest motherf—er” in the game, he appeared to laud the president in front of the media.
“No matter what your views are on Trump as a president, guy’s a bad motherf—er, man,” Masvidal said.
“The money that he’s made, the obstacles that he’s conquered, he’s a bad motherf—er in his own way, you know, no matter what your political views are.”
Masvidal left Madison Square Garden with the title after beating Diaz when a doctor stepped in and said Diaz was unable to continue because of deep cuts around his eyes.
Masvidal had bruised, battered, and beaten Diaz in each and every round from one to three. The bout was waved off before round four could start.
Trump, seen in the crowd, shared a tweet after the fight quoting Masvidal and responded, “Great fight Champ!”
Masvidal later tweeted: “Very humbling moment. Real recognise real.”
After beating Diaz, Masvidal drank liquor, ate pizza, and called Conor McGregor a “f—ing midget.”
The UFC’s boss, Dana White, said there would be no immediate rematch against Diaz as there were greater options for Masvidal in the Floridian fighter’s future.
