“I would call this the biggest loss for many different reasons.” Dana White said during an appearance on Lex Fridman’s podcast. (via Middleeasy). “You live and you learn in life, and you figure things out as you go along. So one night, I’m over at the Rio, and they got these big suites over there. So I go over there with some buddies and we’ve got one of those suites and we have dinner and start drinking. It starts to ramp up, I’m having a good time and I make my way down to the high-limit room and we start gambling.

“I’m continuing to drink, and having a blast. I end up leaving and going home that night, and I lost like $80,000. So I wake up the next morning, ‘F*ck those motherf*ckers got me for $80,000 last night’. So I’m at work the next day, and the host over there calls me… I told him, ‘Don’t get too comfortable with my $80,000, I’m coming back for it’. Dead f*cking silence on the other end of the phone. He’s like, ‘Dana, you lost three million dollars last night,'” White added.

“Like, what the f*ck are you talking about? I only have a million and a half credit line. He goes ‘You made us call the GM of the hotel and you started calling him a f*cking p*ssy.’ I went, ‘Yeah, that does sound like something I would do.’”
