UPDATE: Dana White Explains Why He Stormed Off Of Howie Mandel’s Podcast

Maybe he really does hate doing podcasts.

Many of our readers are aware of UFC founder Dana White’s very abrupt departure from a recently slated episode of Howie Mandel’s podcast.

For those who missed it, here is the moment White abruptly stormed off of Mandel’s podcast seemingly without reason:

Dana White has now come out with a statement explaining why he walked off of the set of Mandel’s show. The businessman and UFC founder explained:

You know where I’m with the podcast. I feel like fu****g Jordan Peterson, every time I turn on Instagram I’m on a fu****g podcast. Yes, no more podcasts, please. Podcast it out.

It sounds like Dana White truly is sick of the podcast life, but is he being sincere here, or is this just part of a clever PR ruse designed to get Howie Mandel views?

The New York Post speculated:

Mandel, watching him walk off the set, immediately began talking to his other guest, comedian Ginger Billy, without acknowledging White’s walk off.

While the interaction could be a work for publicity – it’s been successful if that’s the case – White looked noticeably upset while Mandel introduced him, showering him with compliments.

Despite the reasons given by White for storming off of the podcast, many believe that this was a PR ploy set up by both men to draw attention to Howie Mandel’s podcast.

According to Daily Mail:

White’s previous podcast appearances include Logan Paul’s ‘IMPAULSIVE’ and the NELK Boys’ ‘Full Send’.

White is currently building up the highly-anticipated UFC 300 card scheduled for April 13.

With UFC 298 and 299 happening beforehand, fans have been adamant about why White is yet to announce the main event for April’s pay-per-view.
