One-on-one with UFC president Dana White
Canwest: How many times have you had to go home after one of your all-night blackjack sessions and had to explain to your wife that you didn’t have a good night at the tables?
White: She doesn’t bust my balls at all. Not one bit, believe me when I tell you. I have a lot of all-night blackjack sessions. I have nights where I’ll f***ing come home and I’m like, ‘Holy s***. The kids are gonna be up in two hours.’ So I get two hours sleep and then get up and take them to school and then go to work. But blackjack is my thing. I like to do it.
Canwest: When you withdraw cash from an ATM, do you ever look at your account balance and giggle?
White: (Laughs) I haven’t been to the bank in 10 years. I don’t go draw cash out of an ATM. And I try not to think about how much money I have cause it will f*** you up (laughs). And I was actually afraid, I was nervous and worried, when I made my first million dollars. I was like, ‘I don’t know about this, man. I don’t know if this is gonna be good for me or bad for me.’
