UFC president Dana White announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 this week despite being vaccinated.

White, speaking with Jim Rome on the Jim Rome Podcast on Wednesday, said he and his entire family tested positive for COVID-19 following their Thanksgiving holiday in Maine.

"Literally the whole family — and my family up in Maine too [tested positive]," White explained.

White said he got out of his daily steam session and realized he could not smell his eucalyptus spray.

"I literally got out of the steam, picked up my phone, and called Joe Rogan," White said laughing. "He said, 'As soon as you get up in the morning, get tested.'"

White said he tested positive on Monday morning and was told by Rogan to get monoclonal antibodies.

"By noon I had the monoclonal antibodies in me," White explained. "He told me [to get] an NAD drip. I did that right after. ... I get up Tuesday, get ready to shave, cleaning my razor, I could smell the alcohol. My taste and smell were back by the next day at 11 o'clock in the morning. Then I took a dose of ivermectin."

White said he was vaccinated and not a "crazy anti-vax conspiracy theorist" before calling Rogan a "very brilliant guy."

"I'm not a believer in the narrative," White said. "At the end of the day, Jim, this is a free country. ... When you get this stuff, they tell you, 'Stay home for the next 10 days until you don't test positive.' That doesn't seem smart to me."

White added that he was doing two-a-day workouts now, just days after being diagnosed.

Joe Rogan faced backlash in the media when he announced he was treating his case of COVID-19 with ivermectin, a drug many claimed was unsuitable for treatment and is used as horse dewormer. Rogan took a version of the drug made for human treatment as prescribed by his doctor.
