UFC president Dana White announced he and his family tested positive for COVID-19 during an appearance Wednesday on "The Jim Rome Podcast."

White explained that his positive test came after a Thanksgiving gathering. He consulted with UFC commentator Joe Rogan after contracting the virus.

The 52-year-old said he's vaccinated and feels fine. He took a monoclonal antibody treatment as well as an NAD drip, vitamin drip, and ivermectin.

"Feel like a million bucks," White said. "I'm doing two-a-day workouts ... for the next 10 days while I have COVID, and I'm in quarantine. I got my smell and taste back in less than 24 hours."

White said he's hopeful he can clear protocol in time to be at Saturday's UFC event, which will see Rob Font and Jose Aldo compete in the main event.
