Dana White Says He Hasn't Been to a Bank in 10 Years

Life is different when you're as rich as Dana White. You eat at better restaurants, drive fancier cars, and, with a private plane at your disposal, you never have to worry about oversleeping and missing your flight.

Of course, judging by an interview in the Ottawa Citizen, there are also some differences that you might never have considered.

Dave Diebert found this out when he attempted to question the UFC president about what it's like to be a wealthy fight promoter, asking him, "When you withdraw cash from an ATM, do you ever look at your account balance and giggle?"

Once you get over the nearly impossible image of White giggling over anything, it's a question that makes sense. At least, it does to the plebes among us. Not to White, who replied:

"I haven't been to the bank in 10 years. I don't go draw cash out of an ATM. And I try not to think about how much money I have cause it will f*** you up (laughs). And I was actually afraid, I was nervous and worried, when I made my first million dollars. I was like, 'I don't know about this, man. I don't know if this is gonna be good for me or bad for me.'"

It's difficult to tell how literally we should take White's assertion that he hasn't been inside a bank in a decade, or that he doesn't use ATMs. Unless he avoids using cash entirely, where does one acquire money once both the bank and the ATM are ruled out? Does Pinkberry even take credit cards?

Then again, maybe the Las Vegas casinos act as his own personal ATM. Elsewhere in the interview, White discusses his love of blackjack, saying, "I have a lot of all-night blackjack sessions."

And in case you were wondering, no, he doesn't ever have to explain to his wife why he was out all night throwing money down on card games. Just one more way life is different when you're rich.
