While in town for the brawl between heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and challenger Francis Ngannou, UFC boss Dana White dined with a dozen friends at Empire Asian Restaurant & Lounge in the Seaport, and dropped a serious tip on the way out the door.

We’re told White’s table left a $4,000 tip — roughly 250 percent of the bill — stunning the staff. Earlier in the evening, they’d been at the Celtics-76ers game at TD Garden. The next night, after UFC 220 at the Garden, White stopped by the new Seaport club The Grand, where he drank Ace of Spades champagne.


Meanwhile, actor Chris Jackson, who’s on the CBS show “Bull,” dined at Red Lantern with a few friends Saturday, and Anne Burrell, host of Food Network’s “Worst Cooks in America,” hung out Saturday at The Grand.

And, yes, that was former White House press secretary Sean Spicer in a private box at the Patriots game at Gillette Stadium Sunday. Spicer, who’s apparently writing a book about his mercifully short stint at the White House, was the guest of Cross Insurance boss Royce Cross, along with comedian Lenny Clarke, boxer Micky Ward, Mandarin Hotel GM Philipp Knuepfer, and the city’s foremost flak George Regan.
