WATCH: Dana White Makes His Pro Wrestling Debut (Yes Really)

Dana White and Matt Serra Had a Fun Friday Night in Memphis… Maybe Stick to the Day Job Guys… 

If you’re a UFC fan you’ve probably been watching Dana White’s Looking For a Fight on Youtube, cursing at how much fun these guys get to have. Well, they’re back. Last week they were in Mexico, while these week’s episode takes place in Memphis, Tenessee.

Arguably the UFC’s biggest business rival is the WWE, which guarantees their biggest stars the security of mainstream fame while guaranteeing that they don’t have to get their heads bludgeoned in. They’ve also snatched Ronda Rousey, who will challenge Nia Jax for the WWE Raw Women’s title, at the WWE Money in the Bank event in Chicago, this weekend.

You’d think White would want nothing to do with the sport after that, but it seems like he too is tempted by the entertainment industry’s make-believe-version of combat sports. He took part in an independent promotion’s event in Memphis, and it looks like both Serra and White had a lot of fun.

Pro Wrestling

This wasn’t just a spontaneous guest appearance either. White and Serra were on the poster, looking mean, aggressive, and in ‘The Terror’s’ case, very lean. The 44-year-old former welterweight champion is definitely enjoying his retirement.

The video shows White, Serra, as well as WWE Hall-of-Famer and Memphis local Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, helping Derrick King pick up a win at the independent event called The Beale Street Brawl.

In the short clip, it all looked to be over after Serra and White intervened to help King to the win. Then suddenly, a female performer jumped up on the UFC President’s back and tried to strangle him. Don’t worry though, Lawler was there to make a dramatic entrance and steal the night in front of his local crowd.

Busy Dana

Dana White is very busy at the moment promoting himself the UFC. As well as Dana White’s Looking For a Fight, which airs on Fightpass and Youtube, Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series is Back on the airwaves. DWTNCS has effectively taken over the mantle of the Ultimate Fighter.

It made mainstream news last week after wife-beater Greg Hardy was handed a UFC contract after a destructive knockout of fellow former NFL player Austen Lane. Fellow UFC fighter Jenna-Rose Clark, who has suffered domestic violence in the past condemned the decision.

“I’m here because Dana White is an angel that gave me the opportunity to come and put my best foot forward,” said Hardy.

Next Up

White has a busy couple of weeks coming up. Tomorrow, Monday 18, he is expected to finally meet up with Conor McGregor and discuss the Irishman’s future. You can expect that although a decision will be based upon the outcome of his court case, the UFC will have a couple of contingency plans that they will be considering.

In the meantime, he’s trying to figure out a way to get the UFC’s pay-per-view numbers up, because let’s face it, they’re absolutely horrific at the moment. Last week’s 225 card was one of the two best of the year so far. It only sold 150,000 pay-per-view buys. That’s really not good at all.
