Mike Tyson 'punks' Dana White in video

Published Add your comment

Watch as Mike Tyson 'punks' UFC President, Dana White on an airplane flight.

White uploaded the video earlier today to Instagram and admits that he "Got punked" by the boxing legend.

The two are close friends and were flying on the UFC's private jet at the time. White is flying back home after spending the weekend in Las Vegas for UFC 174.

In the video, White let's out a feeble "I like the seat" as he stands up and moves aside, to let Tyson sit in his seat and get comfortable with a neck brace.

The video has since been shared over 7,000 times by Instagram followers of White.

Tyson is often by White's side at UFC events and once convinced White to give lightweight fighter, TJ Grant, a $50,000 Knockout of the Night bonus instead of Junior Dos Santos.

White once likened the former heavyweight champion to pop star Justin Bieber.

“He’s the Justin Bieber for grown men that like fighting. He makes everybody go crazy. He’s fun to watch fights with. He’s fun to hang around with. I like having him around.” He told reporters.
