In episode #142 of the JRE MMA Show, the beloved UFC color commentator invited Matt Serra, Din Thomas, and John Rallo, to the set. During their conversation, the four men stumbled upon a long-lost prediction regarding White’s health. Serra wanted to confirm if what he heard was right. He asked if the blood tests really predicted that White had only a decade to live.

Rogan confirmed Serra’s words. However, he also provided his take on it. The JRE host said, “He said if he kept going the way he was going, he could probably die in 10 years. But I believe that because Dana was just like, he doesn’t sleep. He’s always going. I could call Dana and have a 2 hour conversation with him at 2 in the morning. He’s an animal. He’s just always doing stuff.”
