“So, you want to be a f***in’ football player?!”
The UNLV Rebels football team received a special visit on Saturday morning when UFC president Dana White stopped by to talk with the team. White has been known to be a great hype man with his intense speeches that were once one of the driving forces behind the Las Vegas-based promotion’s popularity.
UNLV was happy to share a photo on social media of the UFC boss addressing the team.
Tony Sanchez, the current UNLV head coach, previously led high school football powerhouse Bishop Gorman. That is a program which has received plenty of donations from the Fertitta Family, who also happen to own the UFC. The Ferrtita’s son, Nicco, recently graduated and is now a member of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
It is great to see Sanchez and the UFC brass still have a strong relationship.
As for what Dana White said, it probably went something like this.
