Proof Dana can bench 315

If you’re like me, then I feel kinda sorry for you. For us. And if you’re like me, you also thought that Dana White’s Men’s Fitness cover story was pretty bunk. They airbrushed the fuck out of his jelly neck and made all sorts of claims about his workout which reeked of bullshit. To me, I don’t know how magazines expect us to have any faith in the garbage they report when they so obviously tamper with photos.

Anyways, you and I weren’t the only ones with doubts. The generally annoying but occasionally entertaining Garv also called shenanigans and called Dana up to get proof that he actually worked out (and no, ‘fuck’ marathons don’t count). So lo and behold the proof is above, including Dana benching 315.

    Pressing 315 meant something about 20 years ago. I have no doubt most MMA guys don’t do any of those caveman exercises.

    He is out of shape, but can push heavy things slowly. Once.

    Jellyneck only looks like a fool when he tries to compete.

    God Damn you Dana now I feel bad that I probably can’t bench 315! Then again I’m not a millionaire who owns his own gyms, so that makes me feel even worse!

  • MarleyMarl

    I’m impressed lol, I didn’t think he worked out at all..

  • Mike_N

    I have to admit that I enjoyed the Garv’s impersonation of Dana: “Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck….”

    I’m no expert on weightlifting, and I’ve always wondered why the bench press is the standard measure of bad-assery. Why not any other random lift?

    I know a little more about running, and I can tell you that an eight-minute mile ain’t so hot. As a warm-up, maybe it’s okay. But if your cardio training consists of running one or more eight-minute miles, then your cardio probably sucks.

    Does Dana need to train that killer cardio for when he negotiate contracts?

  • marshal

    Nope, not ready for the 08 Olympics, throw in the towel fatass! 99.5% of people are in better shape than Dana.

  • Elfenstein

    1 mile / 8 minutes = slow warm up jog and nothing else – and i dont think mr dana claims anything else.

  • Reverend Clint

    Dana sucks since he can’t bench Butterbean

  • Lifer

    this isn’t surprising. i assume he has access to the same hGh and steroids that the rest of his fighters are injecting.

    Props to Dana.

    I don’t care what anyone says, after people turn 18 most can’t run an 8 minute mile or even bench 225 for that matter (if they ever could). I ran 5 minute miles in high school (cross country) and 2 miles in 11 minutes or less in the army in my 20s and the general population couldn’t do either.

    My highest bench is 300 and I am bothered that Dana benches 315. I can admit it. But I’d rather go to the gym than snipe his accomplishments.

  • Lifer

    try high quality injectables to get over the 300 hump.

    the best bit about this video is hearing Dizzee Rascal in the background at the five minute mark

  • Wu Tang

    Wow.. its like a muscle freak working out…

  • Lorenzo

    If I was spotting him I’d say “come on 1 more”.Then when his arms started to give out I’d tell him “benching is for pussies” and walk out of the gym.

    “C’mon, Dana. Do you want to be a fucking meathead?”
