After some speculation if it was really the Passion of the Christ director in the clip, Myth-debunking site Snopes.com confirmed it was Gibson, citing a pic of him entering the arena wearing the exact same clothes.

Critics delivered Gibson a knockout punch of their own on Twitter after the controversial clip surfaced, citing both men’s sordid history of controversial remarks.

“Mel Gibson saluting Trump shouldn't surprise anyone. Nazis salute other Nazis,” one user viciously claimed on Twitter, while another said: “Why did Mel Gibson who never served in the military salute captain bone spur who dodged the draft?”

“There is no such thing as cancel culture if Mel Gibson isn’t cancelled by now,” author Shannon Watts commented, while a fourth user noted, “How many times does Mel Gibson have to be outed as a piece of sh*t before people acknowledge that he’s a piece of sh*t?”

“Of course Mel Gibson would stand and salute Donald Trump as he entered a UFC competition in Las Vegas,” lifestyle guru Mike Sington seethed on Twitter. “That’s what one racist, misogynistic, homophobic, fascist does to another. Scum of the earth salutes scum of the earth.”

Gibson, known for his outspokenness, spilled on his political leanings during an interview on Fox News. "I am politically incorrect, that's true," Gibson told host Laura Ingraham in December 2020. "Political correctness to me is just intellectual terrorism. I find that really scary, and I won't be intimidated into changing my mind. Everyone isn't going to love you all the time."

Other notable celebs who attended the fight included Justin Bieber, Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian with her rocker beau, Travis Barker.
