UFC President Dana White has been banned by the Palms casino according the to Las Vegas Review Journal. The Palms banned him after Dana beat them for (nearly $2 million), and they asked me not to play anymore.”
Dana announced this during UFC Embedded, and said the following to Las Vegas Review Journal writer Norm Clarke:
“A lot of people are going to think I’m a card counter after that Ben Affleck thing at the Hard Rock. I’m the farthest thing from card counter.”
“Casinos don’t want to gamble anymore. They’re all owned by hedge funds and corporations. They want to stack the odds so much against you that won’t play. Realistically, there’s only one place to play left in town. That’s Caesars. They will let you play what you want to play. No messing around with limits.”
Dana has heard rumors that the Palms will be giving him a trophy saying: “Congrats you kicked our ass and made us tap out.” as a gesture that there is no bad blood between them.
Dana went on to say “I love everybody over there,”
