Conor McGregor

The world-renowned irish MMA fighter is also known for having that warrior bravado that can be used off-ring to intimidate opponents. So why not try and show Trump who’s boss? Unfortunately, there are some things that can’t be fought, no matter how good you are at kicking ass.

Ronda Rousey

The female MMA fighter ran her mouth about DJT. It didn’t take long for the curse to fall upon her. And the predictable Trump smackdown on Twitter: Glad to see that @RondaRousey lost her championship fight last night. Was soundly beaten – not a nice person! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 16, 2015 Sources: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2551830-donald-trump-says-ronda-rousey-likes-him-rousey-says-she-wouldnt-vote-for-him http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ronda-rousey-holly-holm-defeat_us_56483d9de4b045bf3def77d2

Muhammad Ali

The heavyweight champion appeared in the midst of Trump’s immigration stance controversy, and weighted in. Dies six months after. It must be said, Donald Trump did not hold any grudges and paid his respects on Twitter. Muhammad Ali is dead at 74! A truly great champion and a wonderful guy. He will be missed by all! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2016 As well as repeatedly honoring him on the same platform, and showcasing their long-time friendship: “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” – Muhammad Ali — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2013 #TBT With my friend @muhammadali https://t.co/ivJzZVTUfn — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 7, 2015 The curse is scary nonetheless.
