Dana White Walks Off Howie Mandel’s Podcast Less Than 1 Minute In

Dana White shocked the online world when he abruptly stormed out during a recent episode of Howie Mandel’s podcast.

The podcast seemingly began amicably with Mandel showering White with praise and thanking him for being there, it was then that White abruptly walked out without reason.

Following the praise, White told Mandel “Thank you for all the kind words. I appreciate it. I am so f**king tired of doing podcasts. I’m literally done with ’em. I’m not doing any [more] podcasts.”

No reasons have been given for the UFC founder’s abrupt exit from the show. Some are speculating that this was a PR move designed to get people to tune into Mandel’s show.

I won’t lie to you, I did not know who Howie Mandel was before writing this piece, so perhaps those offering up that speculation are correct.

However, we just don’t know why White abruptly stormed out. Others have hinted that Mandel was being sarcastic and was attempting to clown Dana White, but again, this has not been confirmed. Here’s what everyone is saying:

According to The Sun, Mandel opened up his podcast with this praise of White:

“You are an amazing guy, I can’t thank you enough for being here. You are not only an amazing businessman, you are an inspiration and you are a philosopher.

The way you do business and the way you conduct your business and friendships and media, I’m jealous.”

Conservative influencer account Amuse exclaimed: “This is the way. Proud of Dana White for walking off Howie Mandel’s podcast. If you don’t treat your guests with respect you should expect them to walkout like Dana did. Kudos,” hinting that Mandel was being disingenuous and disrespectful toward White.

Daily Caller attempted to find the logic behind White’s abrupt exit from the podcast:

White doesn’t need to self-promote. He is the Godfather of his industry, and has more fame than you can shake a stick at.

And podcasts are mentally and physically draining, especially when you’re doing more than one a day, or even just having to do one every day (they are also insanely boring most of the time).
