DANA WHITE is a familiar face to all UFC fans.
The trash-talking company president has played a huge part in brokering Conor McGregor’s fight against Floyd Mayweather.
Here is everything you need to know about him.
Who is Dana White?
Dana White was born in Manchester, Connecticut, in 1969.
He was raised by his mother and her family for the majority of his childhood and took up boxing when he was 17.
Who did he get into the UFC?
White previously worked as manager for fighters Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, and learned that the UFC was looking for a buyer for the company.
He then got in touch with childhood friend Lorenzo Fertitta, who was an executive at Station Casinos.

In January 2001, Lorenzo and his older brother Frank bought the UFC for £2million and installed White as president. The UFC was sold to a group of private investors for over £3billion, with reports White will get 9% of all future profit.
What is his net worth?
White’s net worth stands at nearly £400million, according to reports.
With him getting 9% of the UFC’s profits, he makes around £18million a year just from that too.
What is Meniere’s Disease?
White suffered from Meniere’s disease – a disorder of the inner ear that causes ringing in the ear and vertigo.
In 2013 he underwent a stem cell procedure in Germany, and now says that his Meniere’s Disease is “100% cured”.
White said: “I am 100 percent a new guy, man. I’m working out again. I’m doing all the things that I used to do. I’m travelling. My life is back.
“All they do is they go in there, they take your blood, they incubate it, they spin it and add stuff to it. I don’t know what the hell they do, I’m no scientist. I’m a million bucks now, man. I couldn’t feel better.”
