UFC President Dana White ended his appearance on the ‘Howie Mandel Does Stuff’ podcast just seconds after being introduced as a guest.
Mandel opened episode 164 by heaping praise on the 54-year-old. However, after graciously accepting the praise, White made it clear that he no longer wants to participate in podcasts and left the studio.
“Thank you for all the kind words, I appreciate it,” White said.
‘I’m so fucking tired of podcasting. I’m literally done with them. I’m done making more podcasts.
White proceeded to push his microphone away and placed his headphones on the desk before standing up and out of his seat. Mandel, guest Ginger Billy and his co-host and daughter Jackelyn Shultz stood stunned into silence as White closed the door behind him.
UFC boss Dana White stormed out of Howie Mandel’s podcast shortly after being introduced.
Mandel praised White for his success with the UFC before White left the studio.
Before his untimely departure, Mandel credited White’s praise for spearheading the UFC’s rise to mainstream success over the past decade.
“Dana White, you are not only an incredible businessman, you are an inspiration, a philosopher, in the way you conduct your businesses, your friendships and your media,” Mandel said. “I’m jealous and I can’t thank you enough for being here.”
After White unexpectedly said he was at peace and left, the show continued and Ginger Billy became the main focus.
White’s previous podcast appearances include ‘IMPAULSIVE’ by Logan Paul and ‘Full Send’ by the NELK Boys.
White is currently preparing for the highly anticipated UFC 300 card scheduled for April 13. With UFC 298 and 299 happening before, fans have been adamant about why White has yet to announce the main event for April’s pay-per-view.
So far, the card is packed with Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway qualified to fight for the BMF title. Another title fight that was announced is Zhang Weili and Yan Xiaonan fighting for the strawweight queen.
White became president of the UFC in 2001 and led the promotion to mainstream success.
White is currently promoting April’s UFC 300 card, but has yet to announce the main event.
Over the weekend, White took several celebrities to see Power Slap 6 in Las Vegas.
The card is far from heavy with the likes of Charles Oliveira, Jiri Prochazka, Aljamain Sterling, Cody Garbrandt and Kayla Harrison all set to compete. However, the top of the bill still remains unnamed with just over two months left.
Outside of the UFC, White has invested heavily in his ‘Power Slap’ slap fight promotion. Over the weekend, the promotion held its sixth event and first outside of the UFC Apex.
White brought many stars to the Durango Casino & Resort in Las Vegas ahead of Super Bowl Sunday for Power Slap 6. In attendance were Tom Brady, Travis Scott, Pat McAfee, Charles Barkley, The Chainsmokers and Machine Gun Kelly.
Since Power Slap is White’s latest venture, the UFC was also well represented in the audience. Former middleweight champion Sean Strickland, recently retired knockout artist Jorge Masvidal and UFC legend Chuck Liddell attended the event. Former UFC investors Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta also showed their support.
