Watch Mike Tyson slap UFC boss Dana White, kick him out of his seat on private jet and write ‘d***’ on his head in prank
DANA WHITE felt the full wrath of Mike Tyson after he fell asleep just yards from the former heavyweight champ on a private jet.
In the hilarious throwback clip, ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ Tyson walks up to White and says, ‘hey, come on, move it’ after slapping his pal on the shoulder.
The UFC boss replies: “I like this seat.”
But Tyson, 55, sharply responds: “I like it better.” He then moves into the seat and adds: “Ah, this is nice.”
White, looking a little shocked, shrugs his shoulders as he takes up a seat next to the two-time world champion.
But Tyson, who is in talks to face Jake Paul in the ring, was not done with having fun at White’s expense.
The iconic puncher then wrote ‘D***’ in capital letters on the American millionaire’s forehead as he fell asleep on the jet.
Despite the pranks, Tyson – who once refereed an MMA match in Manchester 15 years ago – has actually formed a close friendship with White.
White – who grew up in boxing before managing UFC fighters and eventually transitioning into promoting – often invites Tyson octagon side for some of the company’s biggest fights.
And Iron Mike, who walked away from boxing in 2005, admitted in 2012 that, had MMA been as prominent then as it is today, then he may have chosen the cage over the ring.
He told ESPN: “When I came up, my trainer was a boxing guy. If my guy was in UFC, I’d probably go that way.
“I love UFC, big time. How could you not? They play UFC so much, you see it year round, and you just have to want to be a fan. If you’re not a fan, you’re not cool.
“I would love to do that stuff.”
