MMA is no stranger to celebrity fans.
Just about every UFC and Bellator event has a few. If they’re not stars of the screen or musicians, they’re athletes from other pro sports.
Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has been a UFC fan for years, and when he comes to the fights, he’s not just there for the main card, when everyone is watching. He’s in the house for the early prelims. Bellator has some fun stuff going on with rapper 50 Cent, and acting megastar Chris Pratt is no stranger to Bellator shows, and the UFC, as well. Snoop Dogg has done commentary for the UFC.
Other pro sports have superfans that are prevalent. The Toronto Raptors just won their first NBA title, and rapper Drake is a huge fan. Jack Nicholson arguably is the most famous Lakers fan. Boston’s pro teams have huge fans in Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Mark Wahlberg – and UFC president Dana White. The Chicago Cubs had superfans coming out of the woodwork in 2016 when they won the World Series with the likes of John Cusack and Billy Corgan joining Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder, who is close friends with team president Theo Epstein.
