Dana White is a simple man. He loves good fights, money, and gambling. Known for his high-stakes gambling, Dana is even banned from some Las Vegas casinos. And the UFC boss has made a lot of money at a casino again. However, he did not even have to play for it.

He was gifted $500k in casino chips by his friends and media personalities, Taylor Lewan from Barstool Sports and Stephen Deleonardis from The Nelk Boys. This, of course, pleased White and the UFC CEO took to Instagram to share the good news with fans.

A beaming White said in his Instagram Story that he was at the Red Rock casino after Max Verstappen won the Las Vegas Street Circuit race. He was with Lewan and SteveWillDoIt, who each gifted him $250,000 in $25k poker chips. He revealed that the two had started with $10k and turned it into $500k, which he thought was outrageously unlikely.

“So I’m here at Red Rock right now. It’s 2:30 in the morning or whatever. Formula 1 just ended. I’m here with Taylor Lewan from Bussin’ With The Boys on Barstool and Stevewilldoit from Nelk Boys. These two just win half a million dollars…and gave it to me. They’re f***ing lunatics,” he said.
