Dana White was gifted $500,000 by 'f**king lunatics' as he gambled late in the night following Formula 1's Las Vegas Grand Prix.
Bruce Buffer, the voice of the Octagon, was present, too, as he introduced the drivers, which confused Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.
After Max Verstappen claimed a record-extending 18th win of the 2023 season, White ended his night in a casino with two of his pals, who landed an 'impossible' bet.
They managed to turn $10,000 into a whopping $500,000 and instead of keeping the winnings for themselves, they gave it to the UFC boss. Check it out below:
In a video posted on his Instagram story, the 54-year-old said: "I’m here at Red Rocks [casino] right now, it’s f**king 2:30 in the morning or whatever.
"Formula 1 just ended, I’m here with Taylor Lewan from 'Bussin with the Boys' on Barstool and Steve Will Do It from the Nelk Boys."
White added: "These two just won a half a million dollars, these are $25,000 (£20,000) chips.
"Half a million dollars and gave it to me. They are f**king lunatics.
"It started with $10,000. These two started with $10,000 and went on a mission to win me a half a million dollars and they did it! It’s f**king unbelievable.
"Any of you that really actually gamble, the odds of winning half a million dollars off ten thousand dollars? It’s gotta be a million to one. It’s f**king impossible. Literally impossible. They did it."
A huge win for White, but the Las Vegas Grand Prix could prove to be an expensive race as F1 fans have filed a class-action lawsuit against the organisers.
