Nobody thought that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) would become what it is today when it started in 1993. The promotion that has completely changed the world of mixed martial arts grew to become a multi-billion dollar business under Dana White.
White has been the President of the UFC since 2001 and has played a major role in making the company rise to this level of success. Today, UFC has become the biggest platform for a mixed martial arts fighter to display his potential.
The UFC boss has time and again expressed his love and passion for the fight game. So, it is only natural that his son shares the same enthusiasm for the sport.
It looks like Dana White’s son Aidan White is following the same path and is an amateur boxer and also plays football. Born in July, 2002, Aidan asked his father to get him in a boxing match in the year 2018.

So, Aidan made his boxing debut the very same year at the St. Patrick’s Day Boxing Show in the Junior Golden Gloves Division. Competing in the 130-pound weight class, he secured a victory against Andre LeClerc. Dana White was there to support his son and documented the whole event. He even posted pictures of the same on his social media.
Aidan White has a amateur boxing win under his belt but he is interested in football too. He reportedly played the sport for his high school.
How many children does Dana White have?
UFC president Dana White has two sons and a daughter with his wife Anne. His eldest son’s name is Dana White III and he plays football.
Just like his elder brother, Aidan too started with football and then later showed interest in the world of boxing. White threw a lavish birthday party for his son Aidan a few years ago and he was criticized by many as he had spent over $1 Million on this extravagant event.
Dana White’s youngest one is his daughter Savannah White. The millionaire has not shared much about her in public.
Dana White III’s football career
UFC head’s eldest son is the part of San Diego Toreros football where he plays at the defense position with the #38 jersey number.
According to a piece by The San Diego Tribune, Dana III’s coaches described him as very aggressive and active around the ball. They further believed that he has a fighter instinct even while playing football.

Dana White too is impressed by his son’s passion for the sport and even said that what fighting is to the UFC boss, football means the same to his son. Dana jr. too respects his father’s profession and finds motivation in his journey and success story.
It is no surprise that both the sons are passionate for sports just like their father. However, it will be interesting to see if they ever decide to compete inside the Octagon.
