A startling disclosure concerning the recent deaths of Dana White’s parents has been revealed by Dana White.
The relationship that the CEO of UFC has had with his parents has been rocky throughout his life. When White’s mother, June White, published a book about him in 2011, it brought a lot of attention to the strained connection that White had with his mother, despite the fact that not a lot is known about his father.
In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, Dana White discussed his family for the first time after his parents’ deaths and revealed for the first time that both of his parents had recently passed away. In his words:
“I don’t believe I’ve ever brought this up before, but both of my parents passed away not too long ago. My parents both passed away not too long ago; it’s not something I enjoy discussing, but it’s a fact nonetheless. I’m fine with it; I concentrate most of my attention into my children and the bond that I share with them, and I’ve kind of let go of any need to maintain contact with my parents.
The Chief Executive Officer of the UFC responded as follows when he was asked if he was upset by the passing of his parents:
“No. To be perfectly honest with you, I didn’t have many feelings about either of my parents’ deaths, despite the fact that I didn’t harbor any ill will toward either of them in the first place.
Dana White speaks about taking his health seriously and his future as a promoter
It would appear that Dana White will not be leaving his role as a fight promoter anytime soon, despite the fact that he has frequently stated that his time in that role is drawing to a close. During a recent press conference held for DWCS, the CEO of the UFC addressed his words and claimed that his comments were a reference to his age. He explained that he is aware that he is getting older, and that is why he made such comments. In his words:
“My age is 54 years old. I mean, I never once said that my life would end when I turned 40…When I read some of these entries, everyone seems to be commenting on how ridiculously old I am looking. I am beyond my ripe old age, and that is how things works. Because of this, I am older now than I was fu**ing yesterday. It’s just the way it is.
White continued his discussion on the importance of taking care of his health by saying:
“You know, I’ve been taking my health seriously, and I feel fantastic. I feel like I’m 25 years old again, fu**ing again. When you start talking about how my time is up here, you have to realize that the past 20 years have flown by in a manner similar to this. How quickly are the next 20 going to go by? You should be aware that there is still a great deal of work to be done, and today was a very significant day for the sport.
