Dana White

Despite what some might believe, politics and sports aren't two entirely separate worlds.

At the Republican National Convention -- held inside Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cleveland Cavaliers play their home games -- on Tuesday, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump got some support from a friend who's a pretty big name in the sports world: UFC President Dana White.

White, who has led the UFC for nearly 16 years, took center stage at the convention and gave a passionate two-minute speech in which he praised Trump's business knowledge, work ethic and loyalty as a friend as evidence that the 70-year-old would thrive as the USA's President. The entire speech can be seen via CNN's Twitter account here:

"Donald is a hard worker. He's gonna get up there and roll his sleeves. He will work with people and he will put in the time to get things done," White says. "Donald Trump is a fighter, and I know he will fight for his country."

Despite his positive words, White did receive some criticism for avoiding mention of Trump's specific diplomatic plans, with New York Daily News writer Shaun King providing an example:

Still, White's speech was received with overwhelming support at the Convention itself, as he gave an emphatic endorsement of the man recently locked in as the sole Republican candidate. White's ultimate impact will be put to the test when Election Day rolls around on November 8.
