Watchin fights…..

A post shared by Dana White (@danawhite) on

White posted simply, “Watchin fights …” under the photo of the two, pictured from behind.

On Monday, via text, White said of the president, “He was in my room with me all night during the prelims then after the fight. We have been friends for a long time and we talk at least once a month.”

Corey Harrison of “Pawn Stars” re-posted the photo and said, “Thought it was my dad at first lol.” Harrison was referring to Rick Harrison, Gold & Silver Pawn owner and a Trump supporter who could easily pass as White, from the right angle.
