UFC Boss Dana White Pummels The Palms To The Tune of $2 Million

Limits reduced, White asked to take his business elsewhere.

They say the house always wins. Well, when the house is trapped in a steel cage with the President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is not necessarily the case.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, UFC boss Dana White put such a beating on the Palms casino at the tables, they reduced his betting limits and asked him not to gamble there.

“A lot of people are going to think I’m a card counter after that Ben Affleck thing at the Hard Rock. I’m the farthest thing from card counter.”

Used to putting up as much as $25k per hand, White allegedly bested the casino for nearly $2M. Unable to take the pain, the Palms submitted as White was demoted to a max bet of $5k and essentially asked to not play there anymore.

White said he heard through the grapevine that the Palms was planning to give him a trophy that said “congrats you kicked our ass and made us tap out.”

“Casinos don’t want to gamble anymore,” White said. “They’re all owned by hedge funds and corporations. They want to stack the odds so much against you that won’t play. Realistically, there’s only one place to play left in town. That’s Caesars. They will let you play what you want to play. No messing around with limits.”
