Interdasting...

http://www.lvrj.com/news/ufc-s-white-cuts-ties-to-the-palms-176221331.html

old news...new insights.

 

 

"He changed people's lives," said one of the sources.

Dealers and wait staff were among the hardest hit by White's departure. During one two-month hot streak, White tipped dealers more than $100,000, sources confirmed.

"A regular at N9NE Steakhouse, White routinely ran up dinner tabs of $15,000-$20,000 and tossed in $10,000 tips. That happened three or four or times a week, the sources said."

I just can't even fathom something like this. Some weeks we have a tough time scrounging money to pay for diapers. Incredibly generous of Dana to do that...I don't blame him one bit for cutting ties with them.

Something happens to people when they get filthy rich, it becomes a competition on who can do the most over-the-top nonsense - like tipping a waiter/waitress 10k for a meal.

I'm not hating on Dana for doing that, I'm sure the employees appreciate it but it sounds more like he's flaunting his wealth than out of pure generosity.

Or maybe I'm just jaded considering the final crisis that's still a real burden for so many - many of which are UFC fans - meanwhile the wealthy are living it up with $20k dinner tabs. Must be nice!

I think it is funny that Dana values a waiter more than an entry level fighter in the UFC.

Wow, Dana can do no right in many of your eyes. He tips the wait staff 10k and people complain and turn it into Dana not taking care of fighters. People's hate for Dana is uncomprehedable to me.

Dana worked in the service industry so I imagine he is very sensative to tipping regardless of his financial situation. If he wasn't rich he would be the guy tipping $8-$10 bucks on a $20 tab.

The comment about credit line is sort of meaningless if we don't know what it was ? And what it went to.

In 1 yr the new executive there managed to
1. Drive away a big time player
2. Get all UFC events removed from the palms
3. Cost the waiters and waitresses about 40 k a week in tips
4. Created a new dfwjr stalker. Cause I'll follow that guy around everywhere and serve him some fucking steak! Phone Post

Let me highlight this part of the story - "He rarely accepted comps, not just at the Palms but all over Vegas," one source said."

He also turned down a feature role in Here Comes the Boom,

Dana has also played host to many wounded warriors and vets at UFCs, flew them and their families out and many other generous acts for the troops that did not end up in a feature article in UFC Magazine or other media source.

Oh, thats right it is all about Dana - ripping off fighters and stealing there spotlights, got it.

One time Dana found out I was doing a charity fundrasier and he called me and gave my 3K. All he asked for was the name of the agency issuing receipts.

A lot of the old time UGers will remember the pics and fun we had doing that charity fundraiser to fight cancer. The UG joined in, Bas Rutten sent me stuff to auction off, Shawn Tompkins, Mark Hominick, and Sam Stout offered private lessons as raffle items. Charles McCarthy held a seminar with all proceeds going to the event. Tons more. Hell, we had UG members offering to match MMA fighters donations and vice versa.

It was crazy fun.

Dana was good on his word.

Why did they think it would be a good idea to cut his credit line in half?  I doubt they were having trouble collecting from him.

 

I'm guessing it was 100K to 50K, but am speaking completely out of my ass.

Dana gets a lot of shit from the UG, and he may have his faults, but i believe that in the end; he is a good man.

gotta wonder why they did something to piss him off, as they were clearly making plenty off of him and the UFC.
