UFC president Dana White spoke out on the FBI of former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida, stating “there’s 10 other people’s houses that probably should’ve been raided before his that haven’t happened.”
White made the comments during a press conference Dana White’s Contender Series 49 on Tuesday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
“It’s madness, man,” White said when asked about the situation. “The whole world is crazy right now. I don’t know what to think, and I don’t know enough about it, and I haven’t talked to him. I’ve only seen bits and pieces on the news, so I don’t know exactly what’s going on.”
“But I’ll probably call him in the next couple days,” White said. “I didn’t want to call him. I’m sure he’s got better f*cking things to do than for me to call and say, ‘Hey, what’s going on over there?’ But I will talk to him in the next couple days.
White added, “I don’t even know what to say. I don’t even know what to think about any of that stuff because I don’t know enough about it. Without getting political, without getting into all this f*cking bullsh*t, there’s 10 other people’s houses that probably should’ve been raided (by the FBI) before his that haven’t happened.”

The UFC president concluded by saying “It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.”
Biden administration Attorney General Merrick Garland confirmed on Thursday that he personally authorized the raid on Trump’s home.
After insisting that the Department of Justice did not plan to “make any public statements” related to the search, Garland declared that because Trump – who he solely referred to as “the former president” – “publicly confirmed” the raid “that evening,” Garland saw fit to deliver further comments.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant in this manner,” said Garland, before claiming that “The Department does not take such decision lightly.”
