Don't cross the boss.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has pulled all future mixed martial arts (MMA) events from The Palms Casino Resort after the struggling hotel reduced his gambling credit line by 50 percent, according a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Nothing business, just personal.

White, who allegedly racked up dinner bills upward of $20,000, while factoring in generous $10,000 tips, is no stranger to "Sin City" gambling stories, denying reports back in 2010 that he allegedly owed the Bellagio hotel more than $1 million following an unsuccessful run at the casino tables.

The Palms was known for hosting The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) events inside its "Pearl" theater.

Not coincidentally, TUF 16 live finale, featuring a heavyweight showdown between head coaches Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin, will broadcast live from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Dec. 15, 2012. See more on that upcoming fight card by clicking here.
