Dana White

Dana White (born July 28, 1969) is an American businessman and entrepreneur. He is the current President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts organization based in the United States which operates globally. Born in Manchester, Connecticut on July 28, 1969, White grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, Ware, Massachusetts and Levant, Maine. During his youth, he bounced back and forth between Boston and Maine. Mr. White graduated from Hermon High School in Hermon, Maine, in 1987. He attended the University of Massachusetts Boston but did not finish; however, while there he did launch a boxing program for inner-city youth. White has a background as an aerobics instructor. In 1992, White established Dana White Enterprises in Las Vegas. He conducted aerobics classes at three gyms in the Las Vegas area and began managing MMA fighters Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell. While working as a manager, White learned that Semaphore Entertainment Group, the parent company of the UFC, was looking for a buyer for the UFC. White contacted childhood friend Lorenzo Fertitta, an executive at Station Casinos, and a former commissioner of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
