Dana White: Biography, Net Worth and Salary

Dana White has become a household name for Fight Fans. The UFC juggernaut went from a bellboy to the most aggressive, ruthless, and successful businessman in the world. If White did not exist, there probably would not have been a UFC. And even if it did, the company would not be as successful as it is today. Evidently, White played a key role in the UFC’s success.

Dana White

White was born in Boston. But he did not stay there for long. After being threatened by a mobster for money, he moved to Las Vegas, where he purchased the UFC with the help of the Fertitta brothers [Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta]. They bought the company for two million dollars and instated White as the President.

The company thrives under White’s leadership. The UFC’s parent company bought out other promotions like Pride FC, WEC, and Strike Force. White owned a 9% stake in the company during the Zuffa era. Ultimately, the UFC was sold to Endeavor. However, White is still the President. And he owns a significant part of the UFC now.

Dana White and Gambling

Besides promoting fights and hyping up fighters, Dana White is a skilled gambler. The UFC president even got his gambling limits reduced after winning too much at a Casino.

Dana White: Net Worth and Salary

Dana White has an estimated net worth of $500 million. His salary is estimated to be at least $20 million per year.

Dana White: Controversies

Apart from his involvement with a mobster, Dana White has witnessed his fair share of controversies throughout his life. Fighters have often called him out for not paying them enough.

In 2012, an interview featuring Dana’s mother, June White, went viral on the internet. White’s mother revealed unbelievable details about White, including how he turned on his family and became “cruel”. All of these details are mentioned in her book ‘Dana White, King of MMA: An Unauthorized Biography.’

In 2014, a stripper recorded herself and White during an intimate act. As per reports, her boyfriend then tried to extort money from White. In April 2020, the stripper’s boyfriend filed a civil suit against White.

In April 2020, White received criticism for trying to resume the UFC amidst a global pandemic. Though his plans halted for a while, critics could not stop him for long.

White is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the UFC.

Dana White: Charity

As ruthless as he may be in his business tactics, Dana still has a heart. Throughout his life, he has made several charitable donations. He has donated $100,000 to Dustin Poirier’s charity.

White donated $50,000 for a liver transplant to the daughter of one of the instructors at Tiger Muay Thai. Besides that, he gave $100,000 to his former high school, and $1 million to Las Vegas shooting victims.

On July 7,  2020, he started selling UF-SEA T-shirts to raise money for ‘The Woodruff Family Foundation’.
