Dana White is one of the biggest names in the UFC and has a huge net worth thanks to the popularity of the promotion
The UFC would be nothing without the help of its president Dana White and the American now has a huge net worth thanks to the rise in popularity of the promotion.
White has been the president of the UFC for almost the entirety of its existence and he has taken the promotion from obscurity to becoming one of the biggest moneymakers in sports.
Several champions have come through the industry and White has been able to cement deals with the likes of ESPN to ensure the UFC stays the top brand in MMA across the world.
The 50-year-old was born in Manchester, Connecticut and did a little bit of boxing during his college days.
The American has a sister too and started initially working as a manager for former UFC stars Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz.
White was instrumental in the deal which saw the UFC being sold to a company that was named as Zuffa inc.
Things improved for the UFC over the years thanks to the work put in by White, and he was again key in selling the new company to WME-IMG for $4.025 billion.
White kept hold of his president’s role under WME-IMG and also has a stake in the UFC.
Dana White net worth
The 50-year-old has amassed a huge fortune thanks to his great work for the UFC and reports suggest that his net worth is close to $500million as of 2020.
White is also one of the few people who conduct interviews in the Octagon after a fight, and his promotion work before fights gets things really interesting.
That net worth will only increase with more time as White should remain president of the UFC for a few more years.
Dana White wife, family and kids
White’s parents, June and Dana, seem to have had their run-ins with the UFC promoter.
His mother, June, came out with a book in 2011 called “Dana White, King of MMA: An Unauthorized Biography” and claimed that her son had turned his back on the family and his friends too.
She even claimed that he had been cheating on his wife, Anne, with a couple of UFC ring girls.
The UFC president met his wife when they were in the eighth grade and married in 1996. White has one daughter named Savannah and two sons, Dana III and Aidan.
There isn’t a lot known about his wife and kids with White ensuring their privacy isn’t breached, however, he is regularly seen socialising with the biggest stars from across the world.
White lives in Pine Island Court, Las Vegas and has bought several mansions worth millions of dollars.
The UFC president does have some problems as he confirmed that he was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease but is undergoing treatment to deal with the symptoms.
