Nate Diaz has been to the casino with UFC President Dana White.

Recently, UFC color commentator Joe Rogan detailed White’s gambling habits. Rogan was fascinated by the UFC boss bringing a casino with him while on vacation. Rogan went as far as to call White’s gambling habits a “sickness.”

Dana White has never been shy about his love for gambling. The UFC boss has even been banned from some casinos due to his success with big money plays.

Nate Diaz & Dana White At The Casino

Nate Diaz isn’t known to gamble at casinos, but he got to experience Dana White’s tendencies firsthand many years ago. During an appearance on the “Full Send Podcast,” Diaz revealed that Dana has taken him to gamble in Las Vegas.

“We hung out a bunch of times,” Diaz said. “He took me gambling like how he takes you guys gambling and then he drops me a bunch of money before too. He’s always pretty cool and we’re just chilling. So, we actually got a good relationship.”

The Stockton native recalled Dana giving him a load of cash to gamble with.

“He did that when I was a kid to me, too and I was like, ‘wow,'” Diaz recalled. “He was like, ‘Hey, go cash out let’s go to the next spot.’ I brought all his money back, he’s like, ‘Keep that all,’ ‘yes!’ I was young, I was 22. I was like, ‘Fuck yeah.'”

Diaz can’t pinpoint an exact number on how much he saw Dana gamble within the casino, but he knows it was a sizable amount of money.

“I remember he had like hundreds of racks and sh*t,” Diaz said. “I can’t remember, it was a long time ago, but it was a lot of money. I remember when he had me cash out and just keep the money.”

The UFC boss certainly doesn’t appear to be slowing down his gambling habits any time soon.
