A day in the life of Dana white

Sorry if it's been posted, found this article and found it pretty interesting.
Has anyone ever seen his wife ?

UFC boss fights clock - News - ReviewJournal.com

White is in the middle of a four-hour blackjack session at the Palace Station casino. His average hand ranges from $10,000 to $20,000. "I make it exciting," he says.

As president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, White, 39, is worth more than $200 million, so whatever he wins or loses in the casino on a given night is relatively insignificant. It's about the challenge and the thrill he gets from winning, but he's losing now, so he's not quitting.

He finally plays his last hand at 3:15 and heads for home, calling it a draw. "I was taking a beating," he says, "and then I came back."


405 a.m.

White's also an insomniac, by choice. On this Friday morning in late June, he arrives at his 7,500-square-foot, six-bedroom home in Summerlin and shuts his eyes to recharge, but only briefly. He's awake by 8 a.m.

"I sleep probably three to six hours a night. The great thing about me is I don't require a lot of sleep," he says. "I don't like sleeping. It actually bothers me. I wake up a lot. I'm always thinking about what needs to be done.

"The only thing that's holding this business back right now, the reason we're not growing faster than we already are, is because there's not enough time in the day, and other people have to sleep. That's really our biggest enemy right now is time.

"I love this business. I love what I do. It's not work to me; it's fun. I literally could do anything that I want to do. I've obviously made enough money. There isn't anything I would rather do than the UFC, go to work or talk about work. It's actually pretty (expletive) pathetic, to be honest."

White's wife of 13 years, Anne, does get plenty of his undivided attention. It's not all UFC all the time.

8:28 a.m.

Serving breakfast to his kids -- sons Dana III, 8, and Aidan, 7, and daughter Savanna, 2 -- is part of White's daily routine.

"I don't care if I get home at 5 in the morning, I wake up two hours later and get the kids ready for school, eat breakfast and I drive them to school every day," he says.

"If it's not a weekend that we have a fight, the weekends are absolutely 100 percent devoted to my kids. Starting on Friday night when I get home until Monday morning when I leave, I'm with them the entire weekend.

"My kids are my greatest accomplishment. People who don't have kids don't understand. There isn't anything you could ever buy or anything you could ever earn or anything you could ever do that's better than hanging out with your kids."

School is out for the summer, so White's routine has changed. He says goodbye to his kids, jumps in his Range Rover and speeds for the UFC offices on West Sahara Avenue near Palace Station.

He almost always works out at 8:30, but he's tied up on his cell phone today and skips the workout. His schedule is airtight.:
