Shark Tank’s Daymond John reveals favorite MMA stars

Daymond John is a business mogul who loves the UFC. Many well-known figures from various fields are passionate about mixed martial arts and the UFC. This is evident from the UFC PPV events. A number of celebrities like Mark Zuckerberg, have attended to take in the thrill of the evening.

TV personality Daymond John was revealed to be a fan of the UFC in a recent edition of the ‘Pound 4 Pound’ podcast. It is hosted by former UFC champ-champ Henry Cejudo and former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

Despite amassing wealth through his renowned brand ‘FUBU’, Daymond John’s prominence soared with his role on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’. John may also anticipate a big increase in popularity now that he has admitted to being a die-hard UFC fan.

The 55-year-old said that he liked mixed martial arts more than boxing because of how its rules for selecting the winner were more transparent. He also made a point and said that MMAended pre-bout feuds correctly.

According to what John said on the podcast, he even knew veterans like Chuck Liddell. Additionally, he mentioned a long list of other UFC competitors that he was looking forward to competing, including Jon Jones.

He said: “I really like the BJ Penn days, and Silva, Rampage, and Chuck Liddell. I love ‘Bones’ Jones, yeah”

Another huge fan who loves attending UFC events is former President of the United States, Donald Trump. He has long been connected to the UFC’s operations.

There was a lot of problems the UFC faced in its early days. Most venues declined to host UFC events even after the sport was made legal in a number of US states. At this point, Trump got in touch with then UFC president Dana White. Trump proposed to hold his next UFC event in the ‘Trump Taj Mahal.’

Despite running a larger company than the UFC, Trump most likely called White and made the offer because of his passion for mixed martial arts and combat sports. Donald Trump and Dana White’s connection has remained strong to this day, suggesting that Trump’s love for mixed martial arts won’t fade anytime soon.
