During the podcast, White talked about his health status and how is taking the recovery process.

“We just went up to my place in Maine and for Thanksgiving it’s tradition we go up there, and somebody had it, and we get back, and we all tested positive for COVID,” White said. “Literally the whole family and my family up in Maine, too.”

“We got back on Saturday. On Sunday – I cold plunge and steam everyday – I get out of the cold plunge and I get in the steam, and I spray the eucalyptus and I couldn’t smell anything. So I open the bottle, I start sniffing the bottle of eucalyptus, and I’m like yeah, I got no smell. So you know what this means. I literally got out of the steam, picked up my phone and called Joe Rogan.”

Dana White Took advice from Joe Rogan

Dana White called Joe Rogan

UFC President Dana White is a good friend of UFC’s longtime commentator and analyst, Joe Rogan. Joe Rogan apart from being attached to UFC is also known for his infamous podcast, JRE- THE JOE ROGAN EXPERIENCE. Joe Rogan is always in news for the controversial statements which he makes on his podcast. He received a mixed reaction for the statements he made on COVID-19. He had tested positive for COVID-19 but he recovered on his own and followed a particular routine which helped him to recover.

“[Joe] said as soon as you get up in the morning, get tested,” White said when recounting his conversation with Rogan. “So I get up 9 o’clock Monday morning, get tested, I test positive. He said get monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible. So I did. By noon, I had the monoclonal antibodies in me and then he told me to do an NAD drip. I did that.”

“I get up Tuesday, getting ready to shave, cleaning my razor, I could smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back the next day by 11 o’clock in the morning. Then I took a dose of ivermectin yesterday and then I did a vitamin drip and then today I did another NAD drip. Could not feel better. Feel like a million bucks. I’m doing two-a-day workouts by the way for the next 10 days while I have COVID, I’m in quarantine. I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours.”

Dana White has stated that even though he was vaccinated he got COVID-19, so now he plans to go as Joe Rogan advises him.

“Listen, I’m vaccinated,” White said. “It’s not like I’m some crazy anti-vax conspiracy theorist or some of that stuff but Rogan is a very brilliant guy. Very smart guy who talks to the best and the brightest out there and I’m not a believer in the narrative. But at the end of the day, this is a free country. Cause what happens when you get this stuff, they tell you stay home for the next 10 days until you don’t test positive. That doesn’t seem smart to me. Just like when we went through COVID, I believe in finding solutions to problems and answers.”

Joe Rogan

“Rogan has worked with over 30 or 40 people that have done this and he swears by it, and he’s a good friend of mine that I’ve known for over 20 years. So yeah, I believe in what he’s saying. I believe the way he explained to me on how this thing works made sense to me.”

“I’m attacking this thing with the methods that Rogan has learned from very smart people,” White said. “I’m going to keep testing every two days until I’m negative and then I’m going to get back to work ASAP. I hope [I’ll be at UFC Vegas 44].
