Controversial politicial has appeared in WWE and wanted to ask about boxing show tickets
CONOR MCGREGOR vs Floyd Mayweather tickets are so exclusive the US President Donald Trump is tapping up the UFC for tickets, according to Dana White.
The billion-dollar fight is at the 20,000-capacity T-Mobile arena and only around 1,000 are expected to go on sale to the general public.
Most will go to celebrities, sponsors and the fighters’ entourages and the POTUS has already been on the blower about a freebie, although he’s probably got bigger fish to fry.
White said he got a call from The White House requesting tickets but it’s unlikely the main man will be attending as he juggles issues like ISIS, climate change and his fringe.
White said: “We’re still getting the ticket situation together.
“Everybody and their mother is looking for a ticket.
“They called me yesterday and I don’t think they’re going to come but they’ll be watching.”
The mega-hyped fight went up a notch on Wednesday night when Mayweather dared the UFC star to bet his entire fight purse on his own victory.

Among the insults and expletives, the MMA icon accepted although it’s unlikely the loser would ever be forced to pay up .
The Nevada State Commission insists any such detail would have to be written into the fight contract – not just yelled on a stage.
Mayweather barked: “If you believe in yourself like you say you believe in yourself – bet your whole fight cheque you b****. Let’s see if this b**** wants to bet this’.”
And McGregor – who insists he will etch the first L onto Mayweather’s perfect record – said he would happily agree to throw all his chips in on August 26.
The UFC hero said: “No f****** problem, send the contract, kid, it’s done.”
