UFC President Dana White does two things really well: promote fights and play black jack. Promoting fights is his job and playing black jack is a stress reliever. Although most us would probably be stressed playing for the amount of money White plays at the table:

"It's the rush and excitement of all rushes," White told reporters at a Monday media luncheon which was ostensibly meant to promote UFC 169. "What would you do if you put a $50,000 hand up there and you have to split ‘em? There's nights I beat the casinos for $5,000,000."

He grew even more animated when he talked about leaving Palazzo and heading out to the Las Vegas Strip with one of those multi-million dollar hauls, in cash, underneath his arms.

"I'm like, are you serious? We're going to get killed," White said. "They don't have some kind of suitcase where they put the money in. ‘You just beat us, here you go.' That's really the attitude. They just stack it all up there and go ‘thanks, have a great night.' We've had trash bags, we got to the point we started bringing our own bags."

He probably barely optimally plays basic strategy. I'm sure he gets reemed for millions also, but it's still baller tho cause he can.

You can't beat the house. Dana's gambling addiction is probably the reason we're paying too much for PPV's Phone Post 3.0

Dana Wipes his ass with the entire roster's yearly pay.

 

Sounds like a great racket.

I am sure his gambling addiction is directly related to his meniere's disease, that was caused by a Boston Beatdown.

Holy shit. No wonder people like Honda shamelessly lick his ass clean ftw. Yeah, just follow him around and wait to see him carrying bags out of a casino lol. It's worth the risk. He must be a good card counter. My friend is an Asian nerd and he can also do it. Impressive shit. Never seen him with $5M tho wtf.

Compared to the presidents of the companies that own the business's that a fair number of people on this forum probably work for, he's a small notch at the bottom of the totem pole.

What Dana may win on a great night is what gets bet on one hand of Baccarat or Blackjack in some casinos, or even a fraction of what's getting put into a pot at some of the private poker games in Vegas and LA.

Dana would not have fuck all to do with MMA, if it didn't let him act like a bigshot and get adulation for his ego all day. Not a chance.

There is single deck Blackjack played on the strip. If you have a good memory you can count cards. Uncle Dana must have learned to count cards after teaching boxercise in Southie.

sickdarce - Why would he fucking brag about this when most of the fighters he employs are dirt poor. Phone Post 3.0

Because he is an extreme narcissist with zero memory of where he came from. Yes he does good thing for fans and charity, they all do, he is not special.

1) Dana never won $5 Million in one night in the casino. If you're betting 50K per blackjack hand, you have to win 100X to win $5M. That just doesn't happen unless you are counting cards or get lucky playing progressively.

2) Men brag about size all the time. Height, size of the fish caught, penis size, amount won gambling... all the same theory.

Evidence: http://blog.okcupid.com/index.php/the-biggest-lies-in-online-dating/

3) For every story Dana tells about winning millions, he has had offsetting nights of losses.

TLDR: Dana could barely afford the snow in his driveway this year.

Agreed...

This is the worst thread of the month.  This guy is being worshipped by mindless idiots, meanwhile he is a dirtbag who can win 5 million, but doesn't pay fighters worth a shit and god forbid if they say anything, they will be fired and blacklisted.
