Great news! UFC president Dana Whiteis officially COVID-19 free … telling TMZ Sports he tested negative for the virus, and he’s crediting Joe Rogan‘s suggested treatment plan of monoclonal antibodies, NAD drip, vitamins, and Ivermectin for the swift recovery.
“I feel incredible! Today is day 5 since testing positive for COVID, and [Friday at 9 AM], I tested negative for COVID. Thank you, Dr. Joe Rogan!”
Dana tested positive for the virus after a Thanksgiving day family gathering … and immediately contacted the JRE host for advice.
Of course, Rogan beat the virus in a matter of days … but it wasn’t without controversy.
He (also) took Ivermectin … a drug that some media outlets incorrectly classified as livestock medication (there are animal and human versions of the drug).
But, Dana — who is fully vaccinated — says Joe is very well-informed … and most importantly, his plan works.
“Joe Rogan is a brilliant guy and he talks to the most brilliant people out there. He studies, he does his homework on all this stuff, and it’s a fact that this works.”
And, work it did — the UFC honcho tells us … “Monday I did what Rogan told me to do. Tuesday I had my taste and smell back.”
White says if you think his case was a fluke … the treatment also worked on his wife, daughter, and 80-year-old mother-in-law!
We didn’t only talk about viruses … we also chopped it up about UFC 269 — which is only a week away (Dec. 11).
Lightweight champ Charles Oliveira is fighting Dustin Poirier… the man many believe is actually the best in the division.
Amanda Nunes is also fighting Julianna Pena(the “Venezuelan Vixen” told us “Lioness” isn’t taking her seriously). “Suga” Sean O’Malley, Cody Garbrandt, and Geoff Neal are also on the card.
We asked Dana which fight he was looking forward to — outside of the marquee matchups at the top of the card — and he told us he expects a lot of violence when Josh Emmett and Dan Ige do battle on the prelims.
We also talked to White about Nate Diazand Khamzat Chimaev … and he told us he’s working on booking the 4-0 fighter an opponent now that Diaz shot down the fight.
If you missed it, earlier this week the superstar from Stockton told us he wouldn’t fight “Borz” because he was a rookie who wasn’t on Diaz’s level.
Does Dana buy the explanation?? Check out the clip!
