UFC President Dana White revealed Thursday that he and his family all tested positive for COVID-19 after a family Thanksgiving trip to his home in Maine last week.
White, who is vaccinated against COVID, made the revelation in an interview on “The Jim Rome Podcast” with legendary sports presenter Jim Rome. White said he felt good and found out he had COVID after he couldn’t smell eucalyptus after a vapor. He said he immediately called UFC podcaster and commentator Joe Rogan after fearing he had COVID.

“I said (to Rogan) listen, I don’t have a smell, which probably means I don’t have a taste. He said as soon as you get up in the morning, get tested. I get up at 9 am on Monday morning, get tested. My test is positive. He told me to have monoclonal antibodies in you as soon as possible, so I did. At noon I had the monoclonal antibodies in me and then he told me to do an infusion of NAD. I did it right after, “White said.
“Tuesday, I get ready to shave, I clean my razor, I smell alcohol. My taste and smell was back the next day at 11am. Then I took a dose of ivermectin. Yesterday, so I did a vitamin infusion, then today I do another NAD infusion. I couldn’t feel any better. I feel like a million dollars. By the way, I also do two workouts a day for the next 10 days while I have COVID, and you know I’m in quarantine, and yes I got my smell and taste less. 24 hours. “
In November 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorization for the monoclonal antibodies casirivmab and imdevimab for the treatment of COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients with mild to moderate symptoms. The FDA has stated that casirivimab and imdevimab should be administered together by intravenous infusion. The FDA also cleared treatment for the monoclonal antibody sotrovimab last May.

Rome asked White why he called Rogan, who also advised Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers when he fell with COVID-19.
“Look, I’m vaccinated. It’s not like I’m a crazy vaccine conspiracy theorist or anything like that, but Rogan is a very bright guy, a very smart guy who talks to the best. and to the brightest. And I don’t believe in storytelling. I’m not a big fan of storytelling. But you know what, at the end of the day, Jim? It’s a free country, “White said.
“Because what happens is you get the stuff they tell you to stay home for the next 10 days until you don’t test positive – that doesn’t sound smart to me. like when we went through COVID, I believe in finding solutions to the problems and answers, and Rogan has worked with over 30 or 40 people who have done this and he swears by that and it’s a good friend of mine I’ve known for over 20 years. So, yeah, I believe what he says. Believe in… the things he explains to me about how this thing works makes sense to me. did and I am telling you and I am very good friends and if you have COVID I would urge you to do this. Not only did I believe in it before I did it, but now I did it. COVID day 3. COVID day 3, the smell and taste are back. I couldn’t feel better and I’m doing fine two workouts a day for q I am going through COVID. “
