UFC president Dana White says he tested positive for COVID-19 after Thanksgiving gathering

The time is 11:36 PM.

UFC president Dana White tested positive for Covid-19 this week and is currently in isolation in his Las Vegas home, he said on "The Jim Rome Show" on Wednesday.

White said that he and his family tested positive after spending the Thanksgiving holiday together in Maine. White lives in Las Vegas, but is born in the Northeast and frequents his estate in Maine.

White said he consulted Joe Rogan for advice after he was diagnosed, and that he is vaccine free. The UFC president wants to attend a UFC Fight Night event in Las Vegas if he is able to test negative, because he is already feeling better.

White said on the show that he was supposed to stay away from other people for 10 days. I'm doing that. I will be there if I test negative. I'm going to get back to work after I'm negative.

White was one of the most aggressive sports commissioners during the coronaviruses. The UFC and the government of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates worked together to keep live events going on Fight Island during the Pandemic in 2020 and at its facility in Las Vegas.

White said he called Rogan immediately after his positive test, and that he has taken a number of treatments. White said he feels like a million bucks and is working out multiple times a day. He said he lost his sense of smell.

There are three live events in the UFC for the rest of the year. The company has a UFC Fight Night on Dec. 11 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as well as a final UFC Fight Night on Dec.
