Joe Rogan has gained headlines after suggesting that Dana White could have CTE. Rogan speculated on the possibility on the latest episode of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast (via MMA Fighting) while talking about White’s love of gambling.

“Dana White is a notorious gambler but he wins millions of dollars sometimes,” Rogan said. “I think he said he’s lost as much as $1 million and he’s won as much as $7 million in a night…[He does it for] thrills. Also, people who have been hit in the head a lot – Dana’s been hit in the head a lot. Notoriously impulsive, notoriously susceptible to addiction, whether it’s gambling addiction, alcohol addiction, it’s a big part of CTE. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. That’s brain damage, from getting hit in the head. He did a lot of boxing when he was young, had his dome rattled.”

White boxed as a teenager, starting at seventeen, and states a few years ago that he still boxes frequently. White has not yet commented publicly on Rogan’s speculation.
