UFC president Dana White loves to collect weapons and has once again shown just how much fortune he has at his disposal when he walked onto the set of The History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” show.
The reality show takes place in the “Gold and Silver Pawn Shop” in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Dana White lives, and this particular episode sees the UFC boss go all in on some new extravagant additions to the arsenal in his “weapons room”
His main purchase for a unique room in his Vegas mansion was a sword dating back hundreds of years.
“I’m building this weapons room in my house and what I’m really looking for today is a sword,” White explained on the show. “I have some swords, but no real ones.”
One of the katanas was from the 1600’s and ended up costing White $30,000. Shop owner and “Pawn Stars” host Rick Harrison didn’t want to sell the sword initially, but this only served to make White even more infatuated with the weapon.
“The fact that you didn’t want to sell it made me want it more,” White said.
White then sold another well-worn katana for the sum of $9000.
“I love the whole Japanese samurai tradition and the story, and it’s a beautiful sword,” White said. “And I couldn’t refuse, so I took that one, too.”
