For many fans at the UFC fight Saturday in Las Vegas, there was only one big winner, regardless of what happened inside the caged octagon.

Former President Donald Trump drew a hero’s welcome from fans who had come to see the fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.

Trump entered T-Mobile Arena through the fighter tunnel before the co-main event, the welterweight bout between Gilbert Burns and Stephen Thompson, according to USA Today.

There were, of course, boos to be heard as Trump entered through a phalanx of raised cell phones that recorded him smiling as he acknowledged his supporters.

But as those began to emerge, massive chants of  “U-S-A” emerged to drown out the boo-birds.

UFC President Dana White said Trump’s presence was nothing more than “two friends, who are fight fans, watching a fight,” according to The Hill.

The much-awaited fight between McGregor and Poirier ended swiftly.

McGregor’s left leg buckled, ultimately leading the referee to stop the fight and giving a TKO to Poirier, according to ESPN.

White later said the injury was to McGregor’s lower tibia.

“This is not over!” McGregor shouted before he was transported to a hospital, according to the New York Post.

Poirier said the rivals “are gonna fight again, whether it’s in the octagon or on the sidewalk.”

White said another rematch is likely.

Should Donald Trump make a political comeback?

“The fight didn’t get finished,” he said. “You can’t have a fight finish that way. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out. Who knows how long Conor is out? When Conor is healed and ready to go, we’ll do the rematch, I guess. Poirier will do his thing until Conor is ready.”

The fight had been the third between McGregor and Poirier. Mcgregor won the first with a first-round knockout in 2014, according to the Post. Poirier won the second in January of this year with a second-round knockout, as ESPN reported.

Texas House Speaker Issues Arrest Warrant for Dem Rep as He Flees to DC for Second Time

Republican Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan is seeking serious consequences for his Democratic colleagues who left the state to avoid key legislative work. Phelan has initiated a civil arrest warrant for Rep. Philip Cortez after Cortez flew back to Washington after briefly returning to Texas for talks regarding a Republican-supported election bill, according to The Washington Post. Speaker Dade Phelan signs civil arrest warrant for Texas House Democrat who returned to Washingtonhttps://t.co/waprrFq6tN — Midland Reporter-Telegram (@mwtnews) July 26, 2021 New: Here’s a copy of the civil arrest warrant for @CortezPhilip signed by @DadePhelan yesterday after he returned to DC. #txlege pic.twitter.com/oqbQtQ86vN — Brad Johnson (@bradj_TX) July 26, 2021 Two weeks ago, Texas House Democrats flew to D.C. in order to prevent a quorum necessary for the lawmaking body to debate and vote. The Democrats flew on a private charter jet maskless, and six of them later tested positive for coronavirus. Phelan said in a statement that Cortez “has irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of this chamber” and “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas,” according to The Texas Tribune, an online news outlet. But Cortez, whose district office is in San Antonio, insists that he flew back to Washington because the Republicans in Austin were being stubborn on the legislation — as if they were being the non-cooperative ones. “Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving the restrictive elections bill. After discussions with Republican leadership didn’t yield any substantive results, I have rejoined my Democratic colleagues in Washington D.C. to continue this fight on this front,” he wrote in a Twitter post published Sunday. Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving…

Restaurant Tapes Sign to Front Door: Proof of Being Unvaccinated Required for Entry

A restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is trolling the fascists so hard, leftist Twitter is about to blow a gasket. As California businesses consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry, one rebellious eatery, Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, recently taped a sign to its door that reads “Proof of being unvaccinated required.” Underneath this warning is an image of a broken syringe and the declaration, “We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity. Thank you for pondering.” Basilico’s has a history of thumbing its nose at California’s far-reaching coronavirus mandates. Last year, when the state shut down indoor dining, Basilico’s stayed open, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later, when the state issued a mask mandate, Basilico’s declared itself a mask-free zone and required patrons to remove their face coverings. The new sign is just the latest jab at the powers that be, and it is a hilarious one at that. It is clearly a gag, as it is impossible to prove one is not vaccinated, and an employee confirmed to the dismayed Times that the restaurant is not, in fact, checking anyone’s vaccination status. Of course, it was all too much for Twitter leftists, many of whom seem to be under the impression that the unvaccinated are keeling over and dying in the streets and that this novel inoculation is the only thing keeping the more enlightened Americans from doing so themselves. This restaurant down the street from me in Huntington Beach is asking that diners show proof they have **not** been vaccinated. Partisan politics has broken so many brains. Get me off this ride. pic.twitter.com/GSFVqNMiEX — Billy Binion (@billybinion) July 27, 2021 Good morning. Happy Tuesday. ICYMI “proof of being UNvaccinated” is actually a death certificate. And dead people don’t eat at Basilico’s Huntington Beach or any restaurants. Anti-American stupidity…
