Dana White Reveals Viral Howie Mandel Podcast Walkout Was Staged

Do you remember that viral video of Dana White being infuriated with being on podcasts…
So much so that he actually decided to walk out of one – the Howie Mendel podcast episode?

Here’s the clip, in case you didn’t see it yet:

Well, as it turns out, the walkout was – staged!

White revealed what happened in a recent appearance on the “Flagrant” podcast:

So what happened was I did the Sage Steele podcast when she called me Joe Rogan.

First of all, Sage Steele and I are good friends, I love Sage.
She asked me to be her first guest on the podcast, so I go out there.

Now, the studio is owned by Howie Mandel where these podcasts take place.
She was signed to Bill Maher’s podcast company and they’re all done there in Howie Mandel’s studio.

So we get done with the podcast and Howie Mandel walks in and he’s like: “100 podcasts a week happen here, I’ve never watched any of them. I watched the whole podcast, love who you are, what you stand for”, and all this stuff.
We hit it off, started talking.

Great dude.

And, well, one thing led to another:

He’s like: “Let me show you around the studio.”

He’s involved in all kinds of sh*t. He owns social media companies and all this other stuff.
Howie Mandel owns a lot of sh*t that people don’t realize. Smart guy, great guy.

So we’re walking through and stuff and he goes: “Would you do me a favor? Would you come in and get up and walk off my podcast?”

I go: “I would be f*cking honored to walk off your podcast because I’m so f*cking sick of doing podcasts, it’s not funny.”
