UFC President Dana White is the face of every event ever happening in the UFC. While the fighters have to put on a show at least 3 times in a year, he has to be there for the company 24/7 and every other weekend of pay-per-view events, fight nights and UFC on ESPN. This consistency went to such an extent that the UFC was able to carry on with its shows during the pandemic as well.

However, things turned around as a lot of the fighters suffered through the viral Covid-19 last year and this year as well. Regardless, all the fighters so far that tested positive had safely made their way to recovery for the records. We however lost a premier MMA pioneer to Covid-19 in legendary coach Saul Soliz, who was widely known as the “Godfather of MMA in Texas.”

In perhaps a rather surprising news as first reported by MMA Junkie via sourcing it originally from The Jim Rome Podcast available on Megaphone, White reported of how he got the virus. “We just went up to my place in Maine and for Thanksgiving, it’s a tradition we go up there, and somebody had it, and we get back, and we all tested positive for COVID,” White said. “Literally the whole family and my family up in Maine, too.”

“We got back on Saturday. On Sunday, I cold plunge and steam every day,” White continued. “So I get out of the cold plunge and steam, and I spray the eucalyptus and I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I couldn’t smell anything. So I opened the bottle and start sniffing the bottle of eucalyptus, and I couldn’t smell and I was like, ‘I know what this means.’ I literally got out of the steam and got on my phone and called Joe Rogan.” [h/t MMA Junkie]

In case you don’t remember, earlier this year in September, Rogan was tested positive for Covid alone, his family got the virus and recovered way before he got caught with it. So, Rogan tried a number of medicines and vitamin drips that helped him a lot to his knowledge and has hence created headlines across his treatment methods that have further created a whole lot of division between those who are in favour of mandating vaccination and those who are against it.

It seems like those who are against it are getting a much more evidential advantage because earlier, famous boxer Oscar De La Hoya got his fight in a Triller event cancelled against Vitor Belfort due to the virus despite getting fully vaccinated. Even Dana White’s family was fully vaccinated before they got tested positive.

Moving on, White narrates his recovery phase to host Jim Rome on his podcast, “I get up, 9 o’clock Monday morning, and I get tested. He said get monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible, so I did. By noon, I had the monoclonal antibodies in me. Then he told me to do a NAD drip. I did that right after,” he said.

“The next day – so Sunday at 8 o’clock at night I have no taste or smell. I get up Tuesday getting ready to shave. Cleaning my razor, I could smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back by the next day by 11 o’clock. Then I took a dose of ivermectin. Then yesterday I did a vitamin drip, and today I’m doing another NAD drip,” continued White.

Never felt better. I’m feeling like a million bucks. I’m doing two-a-day workouts for the next 10 days while I have COVID and I’m in quarantine. I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours.” White is highly impressed by the methods suggested by Rogan and he is also following the said protocols side-by-side as well. Regardless of the condition, White wants to get back to work as soon as possible.

“I hope (I can attend Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 31 event). If I test negative then I will absolutely, positively be there. I’m going to do the exact protocol that’s supposed to be done and make sure that I’m clean and can go around and be around people again.” White concluded. We wish a speedy recovery for the UFC President.
