- Out of the whole roster, the UFC boss settles on who he would want to hang out with the most
- Dana White reveals two names, who he actually just had dinner with.
Over the years, Dana White was able to portray the image of a shrewd businessman and a true professional. Though MMA does not really an environment where one can make a lot of friends, the UFC president managed to have a few every now and then.
The boss has friends
In the past, White has locked horns with a few UFC fighters, particularly Tito Ortiz. These days, the UFC boss said there aren’t many mean people in the roster.
In fact, in a recent interview with My Mom’s basement with Robbie Fox, White admitted that he has even forged a good relationship with some of them. White would be asked, ‘if he had 24 hours in a room with any fighter from the UFC roster, who would you actually want to pick? Who do you think would make that a fun time?’
Dana would have two names, not one, that stood out from the rest.
“I mean, there aren’t many people on the roster that I dislike and I don’t even know these days if there’s anybody I dislike. Back in the past, there was. But [I think] [Darren] Till and Khamzat [Chimaev] now that they’re BFFs,” White answered.
“I’m actually going to dinner with them on Sunday, so I’ll let you know. [But] maybe it’s those two [Till and Chimaev],” the boss added.
White even facetimed the duo last week, telling them, “I love that you two are besties now.”
The trio actually had dinner
Apparently, White was telling the truth as he went to have a dinner party with “The Gorilla” and “Borz” after UFC London. The trio appeared to be enjoying each other’s company as seen on White’s Instagram post.
In it, was a photo of the UFC president, Till and Chimaev smiling for the camera.
“Back from London and dinner with the boys!! @darrentill2.0 @khamzat_chimaev,” White wrote in the caption.
Chimaev and Till have become the most famous BFFs in the sport at present. However, “Borz” has been having the best streak in his UFC career with four consecutive wins to date, while “The Gorilla” is coming off back-to-back losses.
