Dana White Career
A Career at the Ultimate Fighting Championship
While working as a manager for Ortiz and Lidell, he met Bob Meyrowitz, the owner of Semaphore Entertainment Group, the parent company of the UFC. When White learned that Bob was looking to sell the UFC, he contacted his childhood friend Lorenzo Fertitta (an executive and co-founder of Station Casinos and former commissioner of the Nevada State Athletic Commission). He asked him if he was interested in acquiring the company. Thus Lorenzo and his elder brother Frank acquired the UFC in January 2001, for $2 million which subsequently came a subsidiary of Zuffa.
