While many attendees seemed excited by the convicted felon’s appearance, the New York Jets quarterback refused to stand for the politician’s entrance.

In a viral video posted to X, formerly know as Twitter, the football player was spotted shaking his head as the 2024 presidential candidate — who was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in his hush money trial on Thursday, May 30 — walked by him at the fight.

“Trump is at a UFC event, again. This time no celebrity entourage is with him. Aaron Rodgers completely ignored him. Terrible optics for a man who lives on optics,” the user penned alongside the clip.

The 40-year-old wore a navy Yankee cap and a white T-shirt to the event, while the 77-year-old donned his classic blue suit and red tie.

While Rodgers was notably unimpressed by Trump’s presence, winner of the night’s fight Sean Strickland gave the father-of-five a shout-out during his victory speech.

“President Trump, you’re the man… It is a d--- travesty what they are doing to you. I’ll be donating to you!” the athlete exclaimed.

“My thing is [Trump] had four years to do it and didn’t drain the swamp,” Rodgers said. “And whether he just got scared because of what he learned when he was in there — I think it’s very plausible. But that’s why I was interested when Bobby came to me and said, ‘Would you think about being my running mate?’ And I said, ‘Are you serious? I’m a f------- football player.’ But I love this country, and I’d love to be a part of bringing it back to what she used to be.”

“Oh yeah, I thought about it,” he continued. “I definitely thought about it because I love Bobby, and I just wanted to hear what he had to say about it.”
