UFC CEO Dana White is a Bostonian at heart. If not for the involvement of mobsters in his area, he would’ve never left the place for Vegas. A resident of Las Vegas, White had visited his hometown for both business and pleasure. On his recent visit, he took a picture with Boston Celtics’ Kristaps Porzingis, and it went viral on social media.

As anyone could expect, the height difference is the reason the picture went viral. Dana White, at 5 ft 11 inches, is no short man. However, in comparison the Latvian big man is 7 ft 3 inches tall, and thus he made Dana White look very short. To make it funnier, Porzingis even put the palm of his hand on White’s bald head, and it sent sports fans into a frenzy.

White took the picture after the Celtics’ recent game with the Philadelphia 76ers at the TD Garden, in which Kristaps Porzingis scored a double-double. Jayson Tatum also had a double-double, while Jaylen Brown scored a game-high 31 points.

Even though the Celtics won this time, they did not win when White wanted to. Earlier during an appearance on the Games with Names podcast, White revealed that he lost $20K to Snoop Dogg when the Celtics faced off with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2010 NBA finals.

The UFC has hosted events at the TD Gardens of the Boston Celtics multiple times. UFC 292, headlined by Sean O’Malley and Aljamain Sterling, was the most recent UFC event at the venue.
