If you are a fan of the UFC, you’ve probably seen various episodes of Dana White’s Looking For a Fight on Youtube, searching the world for mixed martial arts talents and cursing at their every skill. Apparently, they are back again. They were in Mexico last week, while this week’s is shot in Memphis, Tenessee.
Meanwhile, UFC’s biggest wrestling sports rival is WWE, a company guaranteeing great fame for their biggest stars without a single drop of blood reaching the ring.
Who would’ve expected White to do copy what his greatest rival is in the business to do? Apparently, he is also up to the entertainment industry’s make-believe-version of combat sports. An independent promotions event in Memphis will prove this point, with Matt Serra joining him in his pro-wrestling debut.

No, Serra and White aren’t up for just a quick guesting. They were on the poster! Looking ready for a good combat. His retirement’s a really great time to try something new for the 44-year-old former welterweight champion.
This video posted on Twitter shows White, Serra, including WWE Hall-of-Famer and Memphis local Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler teaming up with Derrick King to seize whatever belt there is in this independent event called The Beale Street Brawl.
It actually looked like the battle was over before Serra and White joined them on the ring to get the victory for King. To their surprise (almost), a female performer jumped up on the back of the UFC President, strangling him hard.
There’s nothing to worry though, Lawler was there to make a dramatic entrance and steal the night in front of his local crowd.
