Dana White Taking Advice From Joe Rogan After His Whole Family Tested Positive For COVID

For whatever reason, UFC commentator Joe Rogan has turned into a spokesman, of sorts, for how to treat COVID. So when UFC president Dana White admitted that his entire family has COVID following their Thanksgiving gathering, he also admitted that he was in constant communication with the announcer.

White talked openly about how his whole family caught the virus while going through an annual tradition of heading up to Maine for the holiday.

“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,” he said via MMA Junkie.

Dana White claimed his whole family has been fully vaccinated. But when he lost his sense of smell and taste, he phoned Joe Rogan to see how he can best recover.

“We got back on Saturday. On Sunday, I cold plunge and steam every day,” White said. “So I get out of the cold plunge and steam, and I spray the eucalyptus and I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I couldn’t smell anything. So I opened the bottle and start sniffing the bottle of eucalyptus, and I couldn’t smell and I was like, ‘I know what this means.’ I literally got out of the steam and got on my phone and called Joe Rogan.

“I get up, 9 o’clock Monday morning, and I get tested. He said get monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible, so I did. By noon, I had the monoclonal antibodies in me. Then he told me to do a NAD drip. I did that right after. The next day – so Sunday at 8 o’clock at night I have no taste or smell. I get up Tuesday getting ready to shave. Cleaning my razor, I could smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back by the next day by 11 o’clock. Then I took a dose of ivermectin. Then yesterday I did a vitamin drip, and today I’m doing another NAD drip.

“Never felt better. I’m feeling like a million bucks. I’m doing two-a-day workouts for the next 10 days while I have COVID and I’m in quarantine. I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours.”

Joe Rogan has been a controversial figure throughout the COVID-19 pandemic for sharing his views that often contradict the doctors. While he claims not to be anti-vax, Rogan has spoken out against some mask mandates, as well as some social distancing protocols.

Dana White hopes he can still join Joe Rogan and co. for the UFC event on Saturday.

“I hope (I can attend Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 31 event). If I test negative then I will absolutely, positively be there. I’m going to do the exact protocol that’s supposed to be done and make sure that I’m clean and can go around and be around people again.”
