UFC president Dana White joined actor and BJJ enthusiast Ed O’Neil alongside Mark Kriegel on the FOX Sports show ‘Barfly’ this week for an informal chat over dinner.

You can check out a clip from their conversation below in which White talks about the time he got himself into fighting shape for a boxing match with Tito Ortiz (which ended up not taking place).

According to White he took his training so seriously that he was bringing in professional heavyweight boxers to spar with and ended up having to have nose surgery as a result.

He also admits that he wouldn’t even consider doing something so reckless these days as he’s got too hectic a globetrotting schedule to maintain now to risk getting injured.
