UFC President Dana White was allegedly forced to leave Boston, Massachusetts after being threatened by the organized crime syndicate known as the Winter Hill Gang. Now the leader of the former organization has been found dead.
Speaking to FOX Sports, Dana White offered some details on the experience.
“One day I was teaching a class in one of the big clubs in South Boston and these two guys walked into the class and said, ‘Hey, we need to talk to you.’ At first I’m thinking, ‘Does this guy own the club?’ and when he asked me, ‘Do you know who I am?’ that was when I realized what was going on.”
“He basically said, ‘You owe us money’. It was like $2,500, which was like $25,000 to me back then, and said, ‘You owe us money.’ It was actually a guy named Kevin Weeks, who if you saw the trial he’s Whitey’s right-hand man. This went on for a while and one day I was at my place and I got a call and they said, ‘You owe us the money tomorrow by 1 o’clock’. I literally hung up the phone, picked up the phone and called Delta and bought a ticket to Vegas.”
Back in 2011, leader of the criminal gang James “Whitey” Bulger was imprisoned for murder, conspiracy to commit murder, narcotics distribution, extortion and money laundering. On Tuesday, the gang leader was transferred to USP Hazelton in West Virginia.
As reported by MMA Mania, The man was found dead roughly 24 hours after arriving at the prison. The FBI is currently investigating the man’s death, but reports claim the gang leader was allegedly killed.
