Dana White Explains His Decision To Stay As UFC President
Dana White has decided to remain as UFC President for another 7 years. He has decided to explain the motivations behind that decision.
News broke earlier this week that Dana White has signed on to remain as UFC President. Although initial reports were that the contract was for 10 years, White cleared up that it was instead seven. Today, during the opening of a new, massive Apex Facility, White opened up about this decision.
White was asked about the decision, during a media scrum at the event.
“I can’t imagine being out of the game. I love this so much. I’m still 49 years old, for another month. I’m going to be 50 here, pretty soon and I’m dreading it. I don’t know what else I would do. This is what I love to do. At the end of the day, I’ve been the vision for this thing for the last, almost, 20 years; and I’m not done yet. There’s so much more to do. I don’t know. I can’t see a day where I say ‘alright I’ve had enough.’ But, who knows.”
White was then asked what plans he had for his next seven years reigning. He explained that he has used five-year plans for a long time, and that that still continues to this day.
“Obviously, if you look at the apex and….like I told you, there’s a master plan for this facility to grow and get bigger. We’re looking at these P.I.’s that were going to build in all these different countries, and just continue.”
Dana White is controversial, to say the least. However, love him or hate him, he is around for the foreseeable future.
