UFC Dana White 'would be dead already' if he were Justin Bieber

Victor Decolongon

The UFC boss shows sympathy for the current plight of the young pop star.

Earlier today news came out that pop start Justin Bieber was arrested for a variety of offenses in Miami Beach, FL. Bieber was charged with DUI, drag racing, resisting arrest, and driving on an expired license.

During a media event for Saturday's UFC on Fox 10 in Chicago, UFC president Dana White spoke to reporters about the incident (via Fox Sports):

"Not to defend him, but how much money does that kid have? A zillion?" White said. "Imagine if you had a zillion dollars when you were 19. I'd be dead already."

"It's got to be hard to keep it together," White said. "Especially if you don't have the right people around you, too. I don’t know any of his people or what he's got going on, but I can imagine. I know what I was like when I was 19 and I was broke.  Flat broke.  If there were cameras and videos and social media and all that stuff, it's tough to be those guys."
