UFC CEO Dana White recently opened up about his harrowing experience with sleep apnea and the drastic measures suggested by a doctor to alleviate his snoring issues. White, who has undergone a significant physical transformation in recent years, credited Gary Brecka of 10X Health Systems for changing his life. Brecka’s blood tests reportedly revealed that White had only a decade or so to live unless he made substantial lifestyle changes.

Dana White raises awareness on sleep apnea

In a recent episode of Maxx Crosby’s podcast, White recounted his struggles with sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder characterized by breathing interruptions during sleep. The UFC head honcho shared his story to raise awareness, stating, “The reason I started talking about this is because I guarantee you there’s tons of people out there that had sleep apnea, were snoring and went through the same sh*t that I did.”

White expressed concern over the prevalent use of CPAP machines for sleep apnea treatment, emphasizing the gravity of his situation. He revealed that a doctor in Los Angeles had recommended throat surgery as a solution to his snoring problems. The proposed procedure involved cutting his throat to widen it, a prospect that White found daunting. He reflected on the potential consequences, saying, “They were going to cut my throat and make my throat wider, could you f**king imagine if I did?”

The UFC mogul opted to explore non-surgical alternatives to address his sleep apnea, showcasing his commitment to maintaining his health without resorting to extreme measures. White’s openness and willingness to share his experiences contribute to raising awareness and promoting dialogue about sleep disorders and their management.

Inspired by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s cheat day posts, Dana White introduced ‘F*** It Friday’. White shares videos on Instagram trying outrageous food combinations prepared by his chefs, showcasing accessible meals that followers can replicate at home. White’s light-hearted approach emphasizes the importance of balance in fitness, rewarding strict diets and workout adherence with occasional indulgences.

Dana White’s recent revelations highlight the dangers of untreated sleep apnea and the extreme measures some may consider to address the condition. White’s journey serves as a testament to the potential impact of lifestyle changes and the significance of sharing personal experiences to inspire and inform others.
