On Sunday, several videos posted to social media showed former US President Donald Trump receiving a standing ovation as he arrived in UFC 302 in Newark, New Jersey.

This was Trump's first public appearance since Thursday's verdict in nearby Manhattan which he was found guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records relating to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels by Trump's then-lawyer and Michael Cohen before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump's sentencing is scheduled for July 11, four days before the beginning of the Republican National Convention and its process of officially naming its 2024 presidential representative.

Trump walked into the roaring Prudential Center Saturday night and was accompanied by UFC president and Trump supporter, Dana White. Trump also high-fived fans.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan said while Trump making his way to the venue, "The round of applause he's getting right now is pretty staggering."

Trump also got huge praise from UFC champion Sean Strickland. He shouted out Trump in his post-fight victory speech.

“President Trump, you’re the man… It is a d*mn travesty what they are doing to you. I’ll be donating to you, my man.”
