“If the world was on fire and everybody was dying of thirst, that’s the last f—king thing I would ever do. Ever.”
That was Dana White in July last year, when asked about the chances of him ever doing a shoey with Tai Tuivasa.
Seven months later, and the popular heavyweight managed to convince Dana White to change his tune. The UFC President finally did a shoey with Tuivasa after his big win at UFC 271.
“He f—king did alright, actually,” Tuivasa said about White’s shoey. “He was fine. He downed the whole thing too. He did well.”
