Earlier this week, Tom Brady and the Las Vegas Raiders agreed to a deal that would allow Brady to become a minority owner of the NFL franchise, giving him official ties to the city of Las Vegas. And it sounds like UFC president Dana White is excited about the news.

During an interview with TMZ Sports this week, Dana White revealed that he is excited about the possibility of hanging out with Tom Brady now that the former NFL quarterback will now be spending more time in Vegas.

“I think there’s more opportunity for us to hang out now that he’s around more in Vegas,” White recently told TMZ. “I don’t know about working!”

This isn’t exactly a shocking comment, given that White and Brady have been close friends for years, but the NFL world still had plenty to say about White’s comments on Twitter.

It’s not immediately clear whether or not Brady will have a hands-on role with the Las Vegas Raiders, but White seems to think that Brady will bring a winning attitude to Vegas.

“At the end of the day, Brady’s a winner,” White said. “The guy’s a winner. Winning is what he does. Having that kind of attitude and drive, and everything else he can bring to the Raiders and to this city, I couldn’t be happier about it.”
