PLAYERS: Dana White
The UFC has held the past 11 domestic “The Ultimate Fighter” finales at The Palms Casino Resort. So, was anyone else curious as to why the planet’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion decided to host December 15th’s “The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale” at the Hard Rock Hotel, a Las Vegas venue they haven’t hit up to since November of 2006? According to Las Vegas Review-Journal, it’s because UFC president Dana White (Pictured) has severed all ties with the once-popular casino after the facility cut White’s credit line in half approximately six months ago. The UFC had an exclusive contract with the Palms to hold “The Ultimate Fighter Finale” events, as well as other smaller Octagon shows inside The Pearl. Immediately after the beef erupted, White took his talents to the Palms’ biggest off-strip rival. The UFC has been to Vegas’ Hard Rock seven times in the past, including three TUF Finales. The organization’s last card at Palms was June’s TUF 15 Finale. The LVRJ reports that White was one of Palms’ biggest gamblers since the casino opened in 2001. His generous tipping habits earned him legendary status. During a two-month hot streak, White allegedly dished out $100,000 to dealers for sending him their good luck vibes. “Anytime he came in, we knew it was a big payday,” a Palms employee proclaimed. In addition, White was a regular at the casino’s famous N9NE Steakhouse. He routinely ran up dinner tabs of $20,000 and tossed in $10,000 tips.
