Video: Mike Tyson forces Dana White to change seats on UFC plane

- June 17th, 2014

It goes without saying that Mike Tyson is not a man to be trifled with, right?

Apparently UFC president Dana White, for all his bluster and tough talk, thinks so and played the discretion-is-the-better-part-of-valour card when he had a run-in with the former heavyweight boxing champ.

Check out this Instagram video White posted Tuesday of his little, uh, exchange with Tyson on a UFC plane during their flight back from UFC 174 in Vancouver.

Chances are it’s set up. White says he got punked on the plane by Tyson but I’m not necessarily buying it.

Even so, it’s still worth watching just to see Iron Mike give Dana One-Name a smack.

If it was set up, that’s pretty good acting by White. He looks genuinely startled by Tyson’s demand.

Tyson, you’ll recall was once dubbed the “Baddest Man on the Planet” and even though he’s pushing 50, I imagine he can still throw a damn heavy punch. Good call vacating the seat, Dana.
