Dana White is an American businessman who currently serves as President of the much-celebrated Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Being a multibillion-dollar enterprise, the UFC remains the largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization not only in the United States but in the world. And it owes that status to the leadership of Dana White. When asked about his huge successes, White wouldn’t fail to mention his wife, Anne White. Though not so much is known about her, she has been his long-time girlfriend and is now the mother of their four beautiful children. This piece shows you everything we know about Anne.
Who is Anne White?
Anne White was born—Anne Louise Stella—on January 16, 1969, in Maine, The United States. Asides that, there are no details about her childhood, early education, siblings, parents or what they did for a living. What’s known, however, is she attended Hermon High School where she met and befriended her would-be husband, Dana White. After graduating high school around 1987, sources believe that Anne White went to college. But the details have been quite elusive so far. Neither are there any information about her college degree, what she specialised in, her alma mater and the professional paths she trod over the years. The most accurate job description she’s been tagged with is that of a homemaker.
It is arguably true that as her multimillionaire husband goes out there to make the Benjamins, Anne White stays back to be a cover for their four children. What could be farther from a perfect replica of a 1950 American home?
Her husband, on the other hand, began boxing back in 1986 when he was seventeen. Although he didn’t pursue a professional career in the ring, like the Floyd Mayweathers. White began working as a manager for Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell. After meeting Bob Meyerwitz, the owner of Semaphore Entertainment Group (parent company of the UFC) and learning about Meyerwitz’s intention to sell the UFC, White teamed up with his childhood friend Lorenzo Fertitta, and his older brother Frank, to acquire the UFC. After which he was appointed President of the company in 2001.
In July 2016, Zuffa, LLC, UFC’s parent company got sold off to a William Morriss Endeavour (WME-IMG)-led group of investors led for a whopping $4.025 billion. At the time of sale, Dana White was holding a 9% stake in the company. To the comfort of shareholders, he announced his desire to continue in his role as president of UFC. Three years later, on March 18, 2019, White announced that he had signed a new, seven-year contract with the UFC to continue as its president. Under White’s leadership, the Las Vegas-based company has grown to become the multibillion-dollar company that it is today. And has been awarded the MMA’s Leading man of the year awards for eight years in a row (2010-2017) and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Awards for Promoter of the Year (2005–13; 2015–16).
Asides his corporate duties at the UFC, Dana White has also appeared in several Tv series such as; The League, as The Goon, in episode: Rafi and Dirty Randy (2013), Silicon Valley, in episode Homicide (2015) and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in episode Wolf Cola: A Public Relations Nightmare (2017). While these may be enough reason to be a faraway partner and father, White still makes the time to be with his four kids and their mother whom we’re going to tell you more about shortly.
