Stab Podcast: A Surf-Centric Interview With UFC President Dana White
“I could not express to you enough how much I don’t give a shit.”
What the fuck is UFC President Dana White doing on a surf podcast?
Sorry for the immediate F-bomb. Dana’s shouting got us all riled up.
And to answer the question: White is a producer on ABC’s upcoming series, ‘The Ultimate Surfer.’ The show puts 14 surfers in a head-to-head battle for $100k and a wildcard into a handful of CT events.
This would have to be the most interesting guest that host Danny Johnson has locked in for The Drop. White’s opinions are unfiltered, intense, and…LOUD. The UFC mogul opens up on his interest in surfing despite not being on the core side of the sport. “I want the mainstream audience,” he explains, “I don’t care about the hardcore fans.”
White also elaborates on his go-to business tactics, which revolve around “destroying everyone else.” Dana’s view on the world is that you’re either a shark or a seal, and he considers Kelly Slater to be competitive surfing’s Megalodon.
