Night 2 at RNC: Dana White of UFC speaks; Ark. Gov. Hutchinson, AG Rutledge; NRA Lobbyist Chris Cox

Republican National Convention: Day Two

Dana White of Ultimate Fighting Championship took the stage at 8:30 p.m. White said everyone called UFC a bloodsport, but they always had the support from Donald  Trump. Their first two fights were in his venues, he continued to support the organization and was at the UFC 200 PPV fight Saturday.

"For over 15 years, Donald Trump has been a loyal and supportive friend. He's someone who would always contact you when something big happened in my life. He's never  been in business with me, but he's always been supportive."

"I've been in the fight business my whole life, and I know Donald Trump is a great fighter. And he would fight for this country."

Following White was Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who said "he's had personal experience in why we don't need another Clinton in the White House."

"Strength and new energy are not words to describe Hillary Clinton. She offers more of the same failed leadership in fighting terrorism and the same failed top-down approach to health care."

"If you liked the last eight years, Hillary will give you double for your trouble."

"Donald Trump is the type of straight-talking leader America needs right now."

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey attacked Hillary Clinton - Rutledge from the viewpoint of Clinton in Arkansas, Mukasey about Clinton's email scandal.

NRA lobbyist Chris Cox pushed a scenario of a woman home alone at home, who is not armed. He said law enforcement does its best, but if something were to happen, the average response time is 11 minutes. He said when the Supreme Court upheld the 2nd amendment for personal protection, it was by one vote. With Antonin Scalia's death, that vote is now gone, so this election isn't about the next four years, but the next 40.

Natalie Gulbis, a former pro golfer and former contestant on "The Apprentice" - Trump's reality show - spoke about business advice she received from Trump. She said as a woman, she faces challenges others don't in business, and Trump still encourages her "to lean in" to challenges that  come her way.
