When Mike Tyson Told Dana White To Get Out Of His Seat

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 friendship with White, and love of the sport.

The one time world's most dangerous man has even been inside an MMA cage in an official capacity, it just wasn't for UFC.


'Iron' Mike had retired from boxing in 2005 and a year later got the call from the World Cage Fighting Championship to be a referee.

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.


The 54-year-old hasn't been in action in sport since but he is due to return to boxing next month against fellow legend of the sport Roy Jones Jr.

They were meant to face last month but the fight got delayed, although Iron Mike did still manage to fight a shark last month.

Fans are a bit worried about Tyson ahead of his return to boxing after he appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday morning, in a train wreck of an interview.
