Dana White has revealed that he recently underwent a blood and DNA biomarker age test and the results he got back suggested that the 53-year-old only has 10.4 years left to live.
“So this guy can take your blood and your DNA and tell you when you’re gonna die,” White told the Action Junkeez podcast of his encounter with human biologist Gary Brecka. “And he’s right within a month. How crazy is that? So I was f*cking obsessed, I had to know.
“So he’s down in Miami… So I become f*cking obsessed with finding out the month I’m gonna die. We’re down there for my son’s 21st birthday party in Miami. I connect with this guy and they come in and do my blood work and they scrape the insides of your cheeks to do your DNA. And I’m gonna find out—it’s a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday we’re down there—the following Wednesday is when my results are supposed to be back.
“So he calls me—all I’m talking about is finding out this date—and he says, ‘I’m gonna come out, personally, and walk you through your blood work,” he continued. “And I’m like, ‘Motherf-cker.’ I wanted to know today, when this was gonna happen… So, he ends up coming out, he sits down for three-and-a-half hours and goes through my blood work. And I’m all f*cked up. My triglycerides are like 764—they should be down between 80 and 150—and everything else that could possibly be bad is bad. He gave me 10.4 years to live. This was 16 weeks ago. And he says, ‘If you don’t change these things that you’re gonna do, this is your life expectancy right now.’”
However, though White’s results were bad, Brecka gave White ways to improve his life-expectancy, and he has since committed to them 100%.
“First of all, the thing that freaked me out the most was: he did my blood work—I didn’t tell this guy jack sh*t about me, my medical history, what was going on with me personally—he told me everything that was wrong with me. Sh*t that I didn’t even tell my wife. Told me what was wrong with me, told me everything that was wrong with me, from my blood work.
“So he says, ‘If you do what I tell you to do for the next ten weeks, I promise you I’ll change your whole life.’ So I’m one of these people that, if I set my mind to do something, I absolutely do it. So I did everything he said, to the letter. I lost 30 pounds. My legs were so f*cked up 13 weeks ago, I couldn’t tie my shoes. I Couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes, because my legs were fucked up. I could barely walk some days.
“Sleep apnea, snoring; I had these doctors that I went to for 10 years, asking them, ‘What’s wrong with my legs?’ They couldn’t fucking tell me. I told them I was having problems with sleep apnea and snoring. They sent me to one of those sleep studies where you go sleep for four f*cking hours. And then they give you a fucking C-Pap machine that a 400 lb f*cking guy uses. I sleep with it for 20 minutes and rip it off my face and throw it on the floor.
“No more sleep apnea, I don’t snore anymore. Everything is gone in 10 f*cking weeks. I’ve been working with doctors for 10 years that couldn’t do it.
“I feel like I’m 35-years-old again. Swear to god, I feel like I’m 35 again.”
