UFC President Dana White is buying up a good part of his fancy Tournament Hills neighborhood in Las Vegas, Nevada.
According to a report from the Las Vegas Review Journal, the UFC boss has purchased three mansions since October of last year that are very close to his mansion that he has had since 2006. The new properties that White picked up include “a roughly 7,700-square-foot house for just under $1.8 million in October, a 5,500-square-foot home for $2.4 million in January and a nearly 4,700-square-foot house for $2 million in March, county records indicate.”
However, White isn’t just buying up the massive houses to occupy but is demolishing them with likely some bigger plans in mind. City records indicate that demolition permits have been issued for all four of White’s properties since November and it looks like the demolition process has begun on part of White’s massive project.

White acquired his first mansion in the neighborhood back in 2006, purchasing the 6,000 square foot home from Frank Fertitta for $1.95 million.
MMA Mania noted that White may be trying to create more space between he and his neighbors. Apparently, the UFC boss was often fined by his neighborhood association for his seemingly over the top pool waterfalls and has been known to haul in massive amounts of snow to his property for Christmas.
With the UFC selling for $4 billion last year, White made somewhere around $360 million in the deal as he held nine percent of the Zuffa company and the Fertittas being majority owners. With that said, this multi-million dollar home renovation project is just a drop in the bucket for the UFC boss.
