2016 presidential election mma

The 45th President of the United States of America was voted on by the people of the country on Tuesday. Late Tuesday, early Wednesday depending on where you were in the states, Trump gave his victory speech where he stated that Hillary Clinton called him to concede the race.

Members of the MMA community have reacted in different ways. Some with humor, some in disbelief, and others in pure joy.

Urijah Faber first took a humorous approach.

She's right!

“Rogan captioned his post, “Boy do I wish he was alive to see this. #freakparty”

Kenny Florian tweeted, “At least those people that didn’t vote are now going to realize that after all of this their vote ACTUALLY matters.” “Time to stop feeling like I’m in an episode of “Black Mirror”. Complaining on social media does nothing. Physical action = real change.” “What?! My tweets, reading & watching the news from my couch didn’t help me influence change in the world?! 😱”

Rose Namajunas said, “So tired of people expecting others to make things better for us time to think of other ways to make change ourselves! Looking forward to our journey with @earthship hopefully this idea spreads”

Forrest Griffin said, “Surprise Mother fuckers”

Anthony Johnson said, “Rumble told me that since he’s the next president that he wants this photo on the next Rumble Dollar Bill
Go and follow @rumbletimefrenchies”
