Dana White’s bull ‘Twisted Steel’ to make Professional Bull Riders debut on UFC 294 weekend

Of course, UFC’s multimillionaire CEO owns competitive cattle, and one of them is about to make a PBR debut on Oct. 20-22 weekend in “Sin City.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will stage a massive pay-per-view (PPV) event on Oct. 21, 2023, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, but at least a small part of company CEO Dana White’s attention will remain in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It turns out that at the same time Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev will run it back for UFC’s Lightweight title at UFC 294, White will have a bull competing in a Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event.

“Many of you saw Lookin’ for a Fight in 2016, me and Matt Serra rode a bull,” White said in an Instagram video. “And I, for whatever reason, totally got into it. And I started buying bulls back then. I owned ‘F-Bomb,’ ‘Stank Face,’ ‘White Thunder,’ ‘Sour Diesel.’

“I finally have a bull now that is making it to the big time,” he said with a smile. “He’s going to the PBR. And the PBR is coming to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas here, for the team championships, not the individuals, which is Oct. 20 to 22. And my bull, ‘Twisted Steel,’ will be bucking there.

“That’s it,” White concluded. “I’m f—ing excited. If you give a s— and want to check him out, that’s October 20-22nd at T-Mobile Arena.”

So, you heard him, Maniacs! If you can’t make it to Abu Dhabi, consider Las Vegas? Or, maybe you want to wait until “Stank Face” makes it to the big show.
