FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots welcomed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to town on Friday night for their preseason home opener, and at least one special guest was in the house.
UFC president Dana White was Robert Kraft‘s special guest at Gillette Stadium for the game on Friday, spending some time pregame down on the field with Kraft. He also stopped and chatted with Patriots’ defensive end Chandler Jones, who just so happens to be the brother of UFC lightheavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones.
White is in Boston for a UFC event set for Saturday night at the TD Garden. Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will fight Chael Sonnen in the main event.
Check out photos of White visiting with Kraft and Jones before the game.
