Dana White Received Death Threats from a Former Fighter Prior to UFC 200


As if there wasn’t enough drama going on leading up to Saturday’s UFC 200 fight in Vegas, we’re just learning of one more bit of craziness that preceded the fight.

Dana White reportedly received death threats from Dan Quinn, a former MMA fighter who never got the call to fight for UFC. Apparently there was some bad blood between the two in 2012, and since then, Quinn’s done some jail time for weapons charges.

The details are sketchy, but supposedly Quinn told Dana White that he was going to show up to the Vegas fight with a gun and attempt to kill him. As serious as it sounds, White reportedly laughed off the threat with little concern. There’s no word yet on whether Quinn will face criminal charges for the threats.
