Dana White was told that he only had 10 years to live after taking a blood test.
UFC president Dana White recently made an appearance on the Action Junkeez podcast and shared his experience working with 10X Health System in Florida, where they analyzed his blood to determine his life expectancy. White got put on the process by radio host Kerri Kasem, who informed him of a treatment plan by “human biologist & mortality expert” Gary Brecka.
Dana White was given only 10 years to live
White gave his take on getting his blood work done for the reports and what he learned from it.
“So this guy can take your blood and your DNA and tell you when you’re gonna die,” enthused White via Bloody Elbow. “And he’s right within a month. How crazy is that? So I was fucking obsessed, I had to know. So he’s down in Miami… So I become fucking obsessed with finding out the month I’m gonna die. We’re down there for my son’s 21st birthday party in Miami. I connect with this guy and they come in and do my blood work and they scrape the insides of your cheeks to do your DNA. And I’m gonna find out—it’s a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday we’re down there—the following Wednesday is when my results are supposed to be back.”
White reported he got negative results back, with his triglycerides being way higher than the advised ceiling. He was only given 10.4 years to live by the doctor who he claims is always right within a month.
“So he calls me—all I’m talking about is finding out this date—and he says, ‘I’m gonna come out, personally, and walk you through your blood work,” he continued. “And I’m like, ‘Motherf-cker.’ I wanted to know today, when this was gonna happen… So, he ends up coming out, he sits down for three-and-a-half hours and goes through my blood work. And I’m all fucked up. My triglycerides are like 764—they should be down between 80 and 150—and everything else that could possibly be bad is bad. He gave me 10.4 years to live. This was 16 weeks ago. And he says, ‘If you don’t change these things that you’re gonna do, this is your life expectancy right now.’”
White changed his lifestyle habits after the results
Brecka advised White on the necessary dietary changes that he needed to make and gave him a weight loss plan.
“So he says, ‘If you do what I tell you to do for the next ten weeks, I promise you I’ll change your whole life.’ So I’m one of these people that, if I set my mind to do something, I absolutely do it. So I did everything he said, to the letter. I lost 30 pounds. My legs were so fucked up 13 weeks ago, I couldn’t tie my shoes. I Couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes, because my legs were fucked up. I could barely walk some days.”
White stated that Brecka’s recommendations helped him turn his health around for the better. He shared how he had been unsuccessfully trying to resolve some of his issues in the past but got the right treatment this time.
“Sleep apnea, snoring; I had these doctors that I went to for 10 years, asking them, ‘What’s wrong with my legs?’ They couldn’t fucking tell me,” White explained. “I told them I was having problems with sleep apnea and snoring. They sent me to one of those sleep studies where you go sleep for four fucking hours.
“And then they give you a fucking C-Pap machine that a 400 lb fucking guy uses. I sleep with it for 20 minutes and rip it off my face and throw it on the floor. No more sleep apnea, I don’t snore anymore. Everything is gone in 10 fucking weeks. I’ve been working with doctors for 10 years that couldn’t do it.”
While Dana White may have had only a decade to live before, he is now in better health. He did not share if he got the test done again for the most updated findings but insists he feels better than ever.
