Mike Tyson Bullying Dana White Out Of His Seat Is Hilarious
Mike Tyson sits where he wants.
If he wants your seat, you give it up. Just ask Dana White.
Tyson slaps White on the shoulder, forcing him to change seats on a plush private jet as a smug Tyson sits down with a cushy neck pillow.
Of course, it was just a prank. But it made for hilarious viewing.
The former boxing heavyweight champion of the world is often cageside for some of UFC's biggest fights thanks to his connections with White.
But the one time he actually stepped inside the cage wasn't for MMA's leading promotion.
'Iron' Mike had retired from boxing a year prior when he got the call from the World Cage Fighting Championship to be a referee and duly accepted the offer to be inside the cage for the event featuring fighters from the United Kingdom, Russia, the US, Japan, Brazil and more.
Tyson put on his referees' shirt at the Manchester Evening News Arena and called the bout between Spaniard Diego Gonzalez and old Terry Etim, a Liverpudlian who went on to fight in the UFC.
The fight lasted just one round when Gonzalez tapped out to Etim's triangle choke just 59 seconds into the bout, leading to Tyson raising his hand and declaring him the winner.
But how would we have done competing inside the Octagon?
Tyson himself has gone on record to say that if he was an 18-year old up and coming boxer in the modern era, he "probably" would have trained in MMA.
However, the closest thing we've got to seeing Tyson do MMA is the time that he was a referee.
