Many people were excited to see the Sean Strickland and Dricus du Plessis headliner. Some of the notable people who attended included the Canadian PM’s son, Xavier Trudeau. The sold-out crowd started a profanity laced chant, ‘F*** Trudeau’, at random intervals. While it was unusual to see such a scene where the citizens call out their leaders during a sporting event, Xavier Trudeau witnessed it firsthand.

Based on the Instagram story, Justin Trudeau’s son was reportedly seated in a box seat. As a result he must have witnessed the dissing chants aimed at the Canadian Prime Minister. While his story is no longer available on the platform, some users on Twitter (X) shared a screenshot of the story from Xavier Trudeau proving that he indeed was witness to the event. This incident prompted reactions from many people, including UFC’s color commentator, Joe Rogan.
