President Donald Trump is said to have stayed in New York this weekend to watch a UFC fight.

Trump's preliminary plans for this weekend were tweeted Tuesday by one New York Times news reporter.

His visit to the city would take place on a weekend where traffic chaos is already expected due to the New York City Marathon taking place on Sunday, sources said.

It would also come just a week after being heavily booed when he arrived at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington D.C.

Trump's rumors include arriving on Saturday evening in New York for the UFC fight between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal at Madison Square Gardens.

Sources say he would spend the night in his Trump Tower home, which is close to the marathon route that ends in Central Park.

Trump has only been in his apartment in New York a few times since becoming president.

He was invited to participate in a fight at MSG in 2016, but declined after his secret service reported security issues.

Trump is friends with UFC president Dana White and was invited by him to participate in a fight at MSG in 2016. Trump refused after his security service had identified security issues

Trump was then invited by UFC president and friend Dana White.

White visited Trump in the White House last summer with UFC hunter Colby Covington.

The UFC president also publicly supported him during the elections by speaking at the Republican National Convention in 2016.

The UFC has not yet confirmed whether Trump will attend the fight on Saturday night.
