Compares Trump to McGregor

Interview

Cerrone talks about meeting Trump at one of his rallies.

I was out hunting and Tim Kennedy called and said the Secret Service called and said ‘Trump wants to meet us, I need to clear you on a background check’, and I said ‘oh f-ck’..So we went down to the rally and got to bullshit with him…[Backstage] was crazy wild. It was cool just talking to Trump. He was talking about the UFC…It was cool to listen to his points. He’s not just like a racist bigot, y’know…I understand that’s what your aunt’s telling you when she’s drinking wine on a Saturday night, but that’s no really what’s happening. We have two options. Do we go with the indicted girl who’s full of shit, or do we go for the wild Conor McGregor Trump? For all those people out there listening – go vote!..I wish they could teach politics in school more, and gets kids more involved ‘cos it’s our generation that needs to take on things and get involved. I voted for Trump and I voted for pot. I really wanted to check out his toupee. But y’know [Trump] is trying to bring money to the middle class, which most of the guys that fight for the UFC and support the UFC. Trying to bring the tax bracket down to 15% for these guys.
