Dana White: ‘There’s nights I beat the casinos for $5 Million.’

“It’s the rush and excitement of all rushes. What would you do if you put a $50,000 hand up there and you have to split ‘em? There’s nights I beat the casinos for $5,000,000.”

“I’m like, are you serious? We’re going to get killed (Hauling that kind of money out of a casino). They don’t have some kind of suitcase where they put the money in. ‘You just beat us, here you go.’ That’s really the attitude. They just stack it all up there and go ‘thanks, have a great night.’ We’ve had trash bags, we got to the point we started bringing our own bags.”

The UFC makes a pretty penny. But what is one to do with all that cheddar?

As Dana White explained at this week’s media luncheon, you just gamble it and win big in Vegas.

    This guy is the #1 biggest jack ass on the planet /thread

    I’m so sick of hearin people complain about the wages UFC fighters get. Everybody feels underpaid, that’s life. Dana White can spend his money however the hell he wants. Would you dictate to your boss how he should spend his money…er no. MMA fighters are lucky to even earn a living for what they do, and they sure as hell aren’t going to get paid more fighting anywhere else.

    Gotta Love White, he lives like he wants to whether he’s taking 5mil or giving 5mil. He’s living free…cool man, That’s Freedom!!

    People are lining up to fight in the UFC. They get paid accordingly. Millions of people work for companies that pocket the money at the top. That’s just business. Raising fighter salaries is going to do 1 thing: increase the cost of you and I going to see the fights. UFC bosses are smarter than all other sports leagues, its embarrassing how much money gets thrown at pro sports athletes. Baseball, Football, Basketball, etc. Those athletes aren’t worth what they get paid..

    like a boss

  7. Anthony Saulnier says:

    I think what Dana White does with his own money is his own business and I don’t think that he should be bragging about what he wins. It shows that he has an ego problem and that he doesnt always think before he speaks. As for the fighters, I’m all for them earning more money if they can, but on the other hand these guys earn a lot more than the average Joe who actually does something useful for society, such as a firefighter, police officer, doctor, EMT/Paramedic, carpenter, electrician, machinist, social worker, you name it, so I think they should be appreciative with what they earn
