'Threw his money on the table!' - Donald Trump 'caught paying Kid Rock after losing big-money bet' at UFC 287
| Last updated
Eagle-eyed MMA fans believe that former United States President Donald Trump ‘lost a bet’ after he appeared to slam some cash on a table in front of Kid Rock at UFC 287.
Trump, who lost the 2020 US presidential election to Joe Biden, received a spine-tingling reception at the UFC pay-per-view event in Miami, Florida, on Saturday.
The 76-year-old American was at UFC 287 along with other high-profile celebrities, including boxing legend Mike Tyson and ‘All Summer Long’ hitmaker Rock.
Trump watched on from cageside as Israel Adesanya avenged his defeat to Alex Pereira and recaptured the middleweight championship in the main-event fight.
However, footage has since made the rounds on social media of Trump’s interaction with Rock after Adesanya scored a second-round knockout over rival Pereira.
Trump could be seen (watch it in the video player above) reaching into his back pocket and appearing to count some money in his hand.
The former Apprentice star then appeared to slam the cash on the table in front of him, with Rock later embracing Trump by throwing his arm around his shoulder.
“No f****n’ way,” one fan said in response to the footage.
While another posted: “Trump lost the bet.”
Someone else commented: “Threw his money on the table.”

“Everything about this video is insane,” a fourth added.
And a fifth simply tweeted: “Unbelievable.”
Masvidal, an open admirer of Trump, announced his retirement at UFC 287 after he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Gilbert Burns in his hometown.
The 38-year-old American star singled out Trump with praise and called him the “greatest president in the history of the world” after the fight.
Speaking on Trump, UFC president Dana White said: “So this guy calls me twice a month and will talk to me for an hour about fights that have happened since we last talked.
“And he knows everybody. He knows what they did and who they fought last. He’s a huge fight fan. Loves this stuff.”
