UFC President Dana White Was A Lot Different Back In The Day

Now there’s a transformation!

UFC President Dana White is known to most observers as that bald guy who talks and curses a lot. This archive footage of White shows a different side to the UFC figurehead.

This was his first interview as President of the UFC, which took placeway back at UFC 30 – the first UFC event held by new owners Zuffa LLC. Zuffa acquired the UFC in January of 2001. Skinny and with hair, the then 31-year-old appeared rather timid – perhaps more comfortable behind the scenes than in front of the camera.

The massive contrast in personalities is apparent.

Contrast and compare with modern Dana, who rivals Tony Montana for F-bombs per minute.

Some cite his rumoured training for a fight against bitter enemy Tito Ortiz as the catalyst for the change in appearance and disposition.

There’s hope for us all.
