White began his involvement in the MMA industry in 2001 when he and his partners purchased the UFC from its previous owners.

Under White’s leadership, the UFC implemented stricter rules and regulations, which helped to improve the safety of the fighters and make the sport more palatable to a wider audience. He also worked to build relationships with major television networks, resulting in the UFC’s first national television deal with Spike TV in 2005.
