Donald Trump walked out to thunderous applause at UFC 302 Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

“Watch as crowds erupt in cheer as former President Donald Trump makes his first public appearance since becoming a convicted felon. He enters UFC 302 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, just days after his conviction in New York, and is escorted to his cageside seat in grand fashion by UFC CEO Dana White,” Rawsalerts wrote.

“Each of the 34 counts Trump was convicted of carries a maximum sentence of four years, which can be imposed consecutively. However, New York has a 20-year cap on such sentences. This appearance follows his fiery press conference at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan, where he vowed, ‘We’re going to fight,'” the post added.

WATCH: reports:

For one night anyway, a corner of the blue state turned red MAGA: In the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden beat Trump, 53% to 41%, or by roughly 800,000 votes, and Biden in all probability will carry the Garden State again in November.

Nevertheless, the former president was bathed in cheers as he appeared at the Prudential Center — home of the NHL Devils and Seton Hall basketball — to watch the UFC 302 card, which featured a lightweight title fight between Islam Makhachev and Dustin Poirier on Saturday night.

Trump entered the arena at 10 p.m. to a standing ovation.

The Republican party’s presumptive presidential nominee is looking to regroup after the historic verdict made him the first U.S. president convicted in a criminal trial. He obviously wants to show the world that he might have been knocked down but not knocked out.

Trump is preparing his return to the campaign trail fresh off a $53 million fundraising blitz.


Trump’s campaign warned Joe Biden to “buckle up” since Trump is free of the New York City courtroom following a six-week trial.

He is the first former United States president convicted of a crime.
