To that White had a savage response, “I don’t wanna comment…That’s like the toughest kid in school picking on the biggest nerd. My daughter is 14 and her Instagram account is private and she gets more views than Showtime Boxing does.”

Before making the UFC one of the biggest organizations in the world, White started off very small. The UFC president was a bellboy at an affluent hotel in Boston. White used to receive tips just like other bell boys, and they would often quarrel over who got the tips.

They did this by organizing small fights with rules, and the winner got the tips. Even though it was small, his journey in the fighting world began from here. He then became involved in boxing promotions, after which he moved to Vegas because of some threats he got from the mob.

He then went on to the MMA scene as a manager for fighters, and made his way to the top of the promotion, finally becoming the UFC president. White’s journey to success is commendable, and he has worked incredibly hard to enjoy life the way he does today.
