Dana White, along with several other UFC fighters, went completely all in campaigning for Donald Trump’s reelection. The leading MMA promotion enjoyed some benefits from that close friendship between White and Trump, but as things stand, it seems like the next four years might just have new leadership in the country.

According to White though, he doesn’t expect his business to be negatively affected by a Joe Biden presidency. When asked if he was worried about a major impact or even possible retaliation for his strong Trump ties, the UFC President just decided to take a jab at Biden.

“I don’t think (Biden will come after the UFC) but who knows? I don’t know. I don’t even think Biden knows who I am... I don’t think Biden knows who Biden is,” White laughed as he addressed the assembled media in Las Vegas. “I had to do it!”

Also making waves in the election was Tito Ortiz, who won a seat in the Huntington Beach city council. White had a shaky relationship with the former UFC champion through the years, but did congratulate his fellow Trump-supporter.

“Good for him,” White said. “Good for him.”
