In all my time watching MMA I've never known the answer to this question, and it's always bothered me. When someone asks me "what is Dana White's story?" I always think of a struggling gym owner who was running boxercise classes for soccer moms and young lads in Boston. It's well documented that Whitey Bulger's gang ran him out of town via extorting him for "protection money" for the gym. The story is that Lorenzo was a "childhood friend", but Lorenzo was raised in Las Vegas!? Lorenzo then went to college in San Diego and University in New York. To my knowledge, Dana never ended up in New York, and instead later moved to Las Vegas after the extortion incident. How did these guys ever cross paths? I find it odd for billionaire playboys who's family ran casinos in Vegas for decades, somehow entrusted the Presidential role of their business to a run of the mill Boxing Gym Coach without a penny to his name. Bizarre series of events, anyone know more?
