According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, UFC president Dana White is an awesome tipper. One person even said, “He changed people’s lives.” With the UFC empire he helped create, he has more than enough loose change to spare while having a great time in Las Vegas. The report stated that casino dealers would get tipped $100,000 on a good day. One Palms Casino employee even said,
Anytime he came in, we knew it was a big payday.
The best part of this is that he did not want any comps from casinos. Now that is what you call living the life while in Sin City. This whole tipping thing by Dana White does not stop on the casino floor. He regularly hits up N9NE Steakhouse and goes all out. A typical dinner tab is in the $15,000 to $20,000 range, which is the price of a family car. With that kind of bill, the UFC president would tip in the $10,000 range. According to N9NE’s menu, those steaks are not the cheapest when compared to the Outback’s and the Sizzler’s of the world. A nice steak could easily get into the $50-$60 range. So one could imagine Dana White feeding an entourage of a small banquet almost.
All in all, Dana White has this tough and mean character associated to him for being the face of the UFC, but the guy definitely is a generous one.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, White became upset with the hotel when his credit line was cut in half about six and a half months ago. He immediately cut ties with the hotel.
