Ultimate Fighting Championship head Dana White on Friday told TMZ Sports he’ll be voting for Donald Trump.

White cited the Republican presidential front-runner’s early support for UFC events, hosting the once-controversial mixed martial arts competitions at the Trump Taj Mahal when they were shunned by some state gaming commissions and venues.

{mosads}“Not only did we host the events there, but he showed up and supported the events. You will never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump,” said White. “Me and Donald are cool. … Donald will get my vote.”

Trump thanked White in a tweet Saturday morning, calling him “a total winner.”
