UFC boss Dana White, family test positive for COVID-19; relying on Joe Rogan recovery methods

UFC president Dana White is currently in isolation after he and his family tested positive for COVID-19 coming out of Thanksgiving celebrations.

White revealed during a Wednesday interview on “The Jim Rome Podcast” that during a Thanksgiving weekend trip to his house in Maine, everyone who was gathered tested positive for COVID-19.

“We just went up to my place in Maine and for Thanksgiving it’s tradition we go up there, and somebody had it, and we get back, and we all tested positive for COVID,” White said. “Literally the whole family and my family up in Maine, too.”

According to White, he is fully vaccinated. White said his COVID-19 symptoms were minimal. He briefly lost his sense of taste and smell but said UFC commentator and good friend Joe Rogan advised him on how to recover.

White said Rogan’s suggestions were effective, and any symptoms he did experience have faded.

“We got back on Saturday. On Sunday, I cold plunge and steam every day,” White said. “So I get out of the cold plunge and steam, and I spray the eucalyptus and I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I couldn’t smell anything. So I opened the bottle and start sniffing the bottle of eucalyptus, and I couldn’t smell and I was like, ‘I know what this means.’ I literally got out of the steam and got on my phone and called Joe Rogan.

“I get up, 9 o’clock Monday morning, and I get tested. He said get monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible, so I did. By noon, I had the monoclonal antibodies in me. Then he told me to do a NAD drip. I did that right after. The next day – so Sunday at 8 o’clock at night I have no taste or smell. I get up Tuesday getting ready to shave. Cleaning my razor, I could smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back by the next day by 11 o’clock. Then I took a dose of ivermectin. Then yesterday I did a vitamin drip, and today I’m doing another NAD drip.

“Never felt better. I’m feeling like a million bucks. I’m doing two-a-day workouts for the next 10 days while I have COVID and I’m in quarantine. I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours.”

Rogan has been a controversial figure during the COVID-19 era. White said he’s not “some kind of crazy anti-vax conspiracy theorist,” but he trusted the advice he was getting from the renowned podcast host and comedian. Ivermectin, which has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat certain kinds of parasites in humans and animals such as livestock and horses, has not been proven to treat COVID-19.

White said he still has several days remaining in his isolation period, but he’s already keen to get back to work. He said he will frequently test to see if he returns negative results and can move back into public and group setting, and all of it will be in accordance with Nevada guidelines.

“I’m doing the protocol,” White said. “You’re supposed to stay home and stay away from other people for 10 days. That’s what I’m doing. But I’m attacking this thing with the methods that Rogan has learned form some very smart people. I’m going to keep testing every two days until I’m negative and then I’m going to get back to work ASAP.

“I hope (I can attend Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 31 event). If I test negative then I will absolutely, positively be there. I’m going to do the exact protocol that’s supposed to be done and make sure that I’m clean and can go around and be around people again.”
