Donald Trump is receiving flak from every corner, and in the meanwhile, there are speculations that UFC has also turned its back on the outgoing president.
For those who don’t know, at the time when UFC was still picking up the pace and used to struggle to find a place for the fights to proceed, it was Donald Trump, who came to the promotion’s aid and played a vital role in its smooth functioning. The show of support was the start of his friendship with UFC president Dana White. And over the years the two presidents have often paid regard to each other.
While for almost two decades the relationship between UFC and Donald Trump has stood firm but, on account of the recent turn of events in the US capitol, there are speculations that UFC is dissociating itself from the controversial figure.

While this was an expected happening but, which can be termed as an action of a similar sort and went under the radar, emanated from UFC.

Among all the documentaries, one was by the name of “Combatant in chief,” and its protagonist was none other than Donald Trump.
Now, until recently the documentary was achieved on the official UFC website but, according to an update, it is not there anymore.
