UFC President Dana White is a big Boston sports fan despite now living in Nevada. And he’s gone with a big bet on his favorite quarterback to be part of the winning duo at The Match: Champions for Charity today at The Medalist in South Florida. He’s put down $15,000 on Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson to beat Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning.

White’s partial ownership share of UFC makes him easily worth nine figures, so 15 dimes is mere pocket change to him. But he’s also getting a nice price with the underdogs today, who seem to have a surge of late money coming in on them to be the winners.

White also pitched Brady on also becoming a Las Vegas resident when the free agent quarterback was looking for a new home this offseason. Brady ended up choosing Tampa Bay, which made the commute to today’s match in Hobe Sound a bit easier.

Even though TB12 has moved on, it appears he still has a fan in the head of MMA’s largest promotion.
