‘Hiding in My House for Year and a Half?’- Dana White Explains His Tough Decisions During Lockdown

The UFC was the first mainstream sport to be back during the lockdown restrictions related to COVID-19. President Dana White deserves every bit of credit for providing fans with the needed entertainment during the toughest of times.

The UFC hosted shows not only in the USA, but also in Abu Dhabi, having fights in UFC Fight Island during the process. “Yeah, so probably for like, one day, so every day, I would come in here, and we would get something done and set up. It’s not even an exaggeration, this is the truth. By the time I would drive home, I live 15-20 minutes from here,” said White.

And I was sitting out my backyard and sitting there for like three and a half seconds. I was like, Am I fu*king wrong here? Am I Is this the wrong idea? And I was like, No, no, it’s absolutely not the wrong idea. We’re gonna go. And that was that,” he added further.
