Dana White’s Net Worth Equals Man United’s Cristiano Ronaldo
cfu President Dana White amassed an incredible fortune with his net worth rivaling even the likes of Manchester Unitedis the superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
White’s leadership in the mixed martial arts organization has made the UFC one of the most renowned sports brands in the world.
Since his nomination as UFC president, when he convinced his childhood friend Lorenzo Fertitta to buy the company, he has commandeered it into a multi-billion dollar business.
And as the value of the business grew, so did White’s net worth, which would now be worth £400m in 2022, according to the Daily Star.
That puts him on par with global superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who is said to earn up to £500,000 a week from his Manchester United contract alone.
Another thing in common between these two is “Manchester”, although White’s birthplace is not the English city where Ronaldo rose to fame, but a city in Connecticut, USA.
Ronaldo’s salary is only part of his income, with many major endorsement deals like his lifetime contract with Nike and the role of brand ambassador for Herbalife.
The 37-year-old also has deals with streaming service DAZN, fashion brand Armani and luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer, and with his stardom overtaking football, he could still overtake White in earnings.
All of these deals are said to earn the Portuguese icon around £34million a year, with more revenue coming from the tourism sector through its partnership with Pestana Hotel Group.
On the white side, his salary as UFC chairman is said to be around £14.7million, with more revenue coming from his UFC Fight Pass-exclusive Dana White Tuesday Night Contender series, which has been running for 2017.
The 52-year-old has also invested his fortune in real estate, buying several luxury mansions in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With the popularity and buzz around the UFC looking unlikely to die down anytime soon, White will have no problem increasing his net worth with every fight he passes through the Octagon.
