UFC Quick Quote: Dana White on Life

dana white ufc president

"A lot of times, kids go to college and take a major because they do what they think they're supposed to do. I told them I believe 90 percent of America gets up in the morning and drives to a job they hate. That could have happened to me in the hotel industry. I told them to find what they're passionate about and to go for that regardless of what anyone tells them. They can go to school and major in political science and say they want to be a doctor or a lawyer, but unless they're passionate about what they do, they're never really going to be happy or truly successful."

-- UFC President Dana White tells Yahoo!Sports.com what he told his alma mater (1987), Hermon High School in Hermon, Maine, during the commencement address he was asked to give on Saturday.
