Dana White and his addiction to gambling aren’t strangers. He even arguably won around $7 million dollars in a single night. On top of that, the UFC boss is known for betting big numbers. Unfortunately, his reputation for sitting long hours at the casino tables has made some of the major casinos, like The Palm, The Mirage, and The Wynn, refuse to let the man with a net worth of $500 million dollars play on their tables.

Undoubtedly, White can be a little too quirky with his comments on social media. Recently, he took to Instagram and shared his excitement for the upcoming fight week along with a teaser to the event. However, when a fan addressed the UFC president’s gambling addiction and offered to help, he simply denied it and claimed that he didn’t want to quit.

Although White has remained in the headlines for being the head of the UFC, he is also infamous for spending big money on casinos. He has even been kicked out of ‘The Palm’ twice.

Furthermore, a couple of other places seemingly do not allow White to play inside their premises. However, this hasn’t stopped him from continuing to gamble at giants like Cesar’s Palace, The Bellagio, and the Venetian.

Apparently worried about White, a fan took to the comments section of the UFC president’s recent Instagram post and offered some help to overcome the gambling addiction. The fan wrote, “i read your article. you are addicted to gambling. i create a website who addicted to gambling and want to quit. please support.” Additionally, he provided a link to the helpline.

Surprisingly, White was in no mood for accepting the offer and quitting. However, he didn’t fail to thank the fan who looked out for him. He replied, “i don’t wanna quit but thanks for thinking of me.”

UFC prohibits fighters from gambling on fights

Back in October 2022, the UFC updated its code of conduct policy. In the new update, the organization prohibited the fighters from placing a wager on the UFC fights. Moreover, the update also took away the permission for the family members and coaches to bet on their fighters.

Without a doubt, it caused an uproar within the world of mixed martial arts. Neither the fans nor the professionals were happy about the new policy. It undeniably seemed like the fighters were deprived of this additional ‘income’.
