Donald Trump’s partnership has been talked about all week long. It was officially announced at the “Affliction: Banned” press conference at the Trump Tower on Thursday morning. Although we still do not know the capacity of Trump’s partnership, we do know the end goal, which according to Trump is to, “become a major player in promotion of MMA.”
Trump has had a lot of experience in hyping up sporting events in the past, as he has done with Vince McMahon and the WWE. Now, he looks to help the sport of Mixed Martial Arts grow and more specifically, Affliction.
He made his feelings about July 19th’s event clear when he told the media, “July 19th will be an amazing event. MMA is exploding.”
There’s no doubt that we’ll start to hear more about the event through the standard media outlets simply because Donald Trump is now involved.
