Just because UFC president Dana White recently became filthy rich from selling his 9% share of the fight promotion for a cool 360 million bucks, it doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about the little guy. At UFC 201, the first major event since the sale was announced, White still took the time to fix a fan’s crappy seating situation after they tweeted him about it.
As you can see from the picture, a poor fight fan shelled out some decent cash for what he thought would be decent seats and instead got a big pile of cables obstructing his view. After complaining to White on Twitter, the UFC boss took care of things swiftly.
This is just more evidence that Dana White uses Twitter for more than just threatening to rub his nuts on people’s faces. He’s helped numerous fans out with free tickets and upgrades and special perks for couples getting married. He’s even been known to dish out big donations to help with medical bills. If you’re a fan of the sport and reach out to him, there’s always a chance he could respond in ways only a benevolent millionaire sports league owner can. Of course, if you talk s**t, prepare to be called a goof or worse. Just another way White is a unique kind of sports exec.
