Johnny Manziel attends UFC 173; takes photo with Dana White


Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel spent Memorial Day Weekend partying in Las Vegas, and even stopped by the MGM Grand Garden Arena to take in an epic night of fights at UFC 173.

Manziel was sitting cageside to watch TJ Dillashaw upset Renan Barao and claim the UFC bantamweight title which was one of the best performances we have ever seen inside of the octagon.

It wasn’t a bad event for Johnny Football to show up to.

After taking in the fights, Manziel stopped by to snap a photo with UFC president Dana White, who is apparently a friend of his.

During the post-fight press conference, White said that he first met Manziel about eight months ago and that they keep in contact. The UFC president went on to rave about how great of a kid Manziel is saying that he is “one of the nicest guys” you will ever meet.

Move over, Bieber, Dana has a new BFF.

You can check out the photo of Johnny Manziel and Dana White below:

Just a few weeks ago in Cincinnati, just two days after he was selected by the Cleveland Browns, a fan did the Johnny Manziel “show me the money” pose alongside ring girls Vanessa Hanson and Chrissy Blair.

If the Johnny Football spirit can bring us great events like UFC Fight Night 40 and UFC 173, perhaps we should make sure he or at least his spirit is always always around.
