Triller Fight Club’s upcoming card this Saturday took a left turn this week upon the announcement of Donald Trump’s appearance as a commentator for the alternative broadcast. For $50, you get to see the former U.S. President, his son Don Jr., and UFC BMF champion Jorge Masvidal give their blow-by-blow analysis throughout the night of fights.

Apparently, there is more to this story. Close sources told TMZ that Trump will receive an “obscene” amount of money. The exact amount was not revealed, but it is said to be “millions and millions.”

That’s not all. Triller is also said to be providing Trump with a G-5 jet to pick him up from his Mar-a-Lago home to the venue at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, and vice versa. Per Google Maps, that’s about a 50-minute drive via the I-95, and an hour drive via Florida’s Turnpike.

TMZ adds that the deal was made on Labor Day and that it left many event personnel “downright angry.”

Triller’s September 11 event is headlined by the return of Evander Holyfield, who takes on former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. Also part of the card is a 195-pound catchweight between Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz.
