Dana White Helps Promoter Return After 10-Year Hiatus
After Dana Rosenblatt, the boxing world saw Dana White.
The 18-year-old bellhop soon became an executive in the world’s biggest MMA promotion. However, both of these individuals gave an entree to the boxing world that would bring Joe Cavallaro down to the promotional aspect.
After 10 years, the World Championship Fighting founder makes his return to the ring with Combat FC 1, which is scheduled at The Shriners Auditorium. Former Bellator commentator Sean Wheelock will also be making headlines during the event.
“We were doing that before it was a business model. I honestly had no clue about it, I learned about [the business] through Dana, being around the fights,” Cavallaro told MMA fighting.
Cavallaro has historically influenced fighters, such as Jon Jones and Calvin Kattar.
Cavallaro has revolutionized the WCF into an exquisite regional player as the sport exploded onto impossible heights in the sports entertainment industry.
However, a jaunt in real estate completely changed fate as it turned it into a full-time career and eventually took him away from the sport.
Just as it is the case with all the promoters and everyone associated with this field, the pandemic delayed proceedings as everyone waited for the return announcement.
As the prices continued to rise, he drifted away from real estate. White was able to create a connection between him and the UFC Fight Pass team when he finally was able to plan a show.
