UFC President Dana White may have never achieved the aspiration of becoming a professional boxer, but the UFC head’s son appears to be well on his way. Now White has come forward to reveal why his son chose to box in the first place.
Aidan White, son to the UFC president, made his boxing debut at a recent “St. Patrick’s Day Boxing Show” within the Junior Golden Gloves division. Competing at 130 pounds, the newly budding pugilist earned a victory over Andre LeClerc.
Speaking to Muay Thai phenom John Wayne Parr after the boxing match, Dana White revealed why his son decided to enter the boxing match in the first place. The UFC president explained that all of his sons train in various combat sports. However, it was not until football season had ended that Aidan White elected to train for a boxing match.

Total fan boy moment. Was lucky to meet @danawhite a few years ago on a trip to Vegas. I mentioned I was a Muay Thai fighter and he replied both his boys trained Muay Thai also. His son @aidan_white_ won his boxing fight last night and just threw out a message to see if they still trained Muay Thai? Wasn’t expecting a reply but stoked to receive one. Gotta love social media ?.
