NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Donald Trump, a known fan of mixed-martial arts, will attend UFC:244 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night, according to TMZ.

The match will pit fighters Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal against each other. 

Trump will be surrounded by his family and friends: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be there to present the winner with the "Bad Mother F*****" belt. New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft will also be at the Garden for the event. It's also expected that his sons Donald Jr. and Eric will attend. 

Trump is also friends with UFC president Dana White. 

The event -- which marks the UFC's 500th live event -- will be available on pay-per-view, so you may catch the president in cutaways.

Traffic in midtown will be a nightmare, though: He is expected to spend Saturday night at Trump Tower and leave Sunday -- the day of the New York City Marathon.
