UFC president Dana White Dana is the brains behind the UFC. The promotion was sold approximately $4bn to a group led by Hollywood talent agency WME-IMG back in 2016. No doubt White is laying on millions and known for an opulent lifestyle.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, White spent over $1 million on his son Aidan’s 16th birthday bash. On Wednesday night, UFC head rented out Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell in Las Vegas.
“We’ve done nothing like this,” White told a reporter. “Not even close. We were wondering how we were going to top (son) Dana’s party, but we did it. They brought out the big red button, and we hit that, and a bunch of those high-pressure steam cannons went off. That brought the crowd from the pool inside. It was awesome.”
The night party lasted six hours at the Drai’s rooftop; moreover, White also booked a musical artists Migos, Everlast, DJ Carnage and A$AP Rocky all performed and presented his son a customized Land Rover Defender for his gift.
That’s not the first time he threw such a lavish party, last year White rented out Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, Nevada, for a private concert and hired Kendrick Lamar to perform for his son Dana’s 16th birthday party.
Moreover, White often receives criticisms regarding fighters compensation, which led to many either being express their frustration with the media or jumping ship to other promotions.
