“A Vindictive Tyrant Who Lacks Any Feelings for How He Treats Others”: Dana White Might Never Forgive His Single Mother for What She Wrote in Her Book

Published 12/24/2022, 7:25 AM EST

The UFC President, Dana White is one of the most noted faces of the promotion. The Irish-American carries a very easy-going personality and doesn’t shy away from cameras. White appears in a lot of podcasts and talk shows, which gains him humongous popularity, unlike other head-of-organizations. White‘s video segment, ‘F**kIt Friday’, is loved and viewed by millions of Instagram users. Fans also respect him for his vital single-handed efforts to revive the UFC back to its glory.

But, White‘s mother, June White‘s experiences might leave a different impression on the fans about the UFC boss. She narrated in her 2011 book, ‘Dana White, King of MMA: Dana White an unauthorized biography’ how White‘s character and behavior took a sharp shift as he tasted success. June White also regretted the fact that she had lost the “good son” and “true friend” she once had as White.

June White also laid stress on how White had always received backup from his family and friends in every situation. However, she also regretted the fact that White was too ungrateful to repay their favors once he tasted success.

She wrote, “Dana’s friends and family were always there to help and support him, no matter what the circumstances. As Dana’s success grew and the circumstances of life changed for him, he did not do the same for them.”

She further criticized White in a stern tone, writing, “Dana went from being a true friend, a good son, and a truly nice person to being a vindictive tyrant who lacks any feelings for how he treats others.”

The grief of June White is understandable since she had to witness her loved son’s insane shift from a “nice person” to a despotical, hard-hearted man.

June White penned, “It’s hard to say if what changed him so utterly was the extreme amount of money he came into so quickly, the influence of those around him or how suddenly he could make or break so many people.”

The UFC lynchpin’s mother’s following words revealed her conclusion with a sense of regret. She wrote, “Power can create ugly beasts”.

It’s pertinent to note that White has also been called out quite sometimes due to his selfish nature. Former UFC fighter, Gray Maynard and the noted YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, spoke about White’s self-centered mentality.

With even his own mother accusing him of a similar heartless attitude, do you believe that the UFC boss is actually a self-centered and ungrateful person?
