Mike Tyson, the renowned and formidable boxer, once playfully teased UFC President Dana White, asking him to jump out of his seat during a humorous exhibition of Tyson’s intimidating character.
While on a private plane ride together, White found himself pleasantly seated when the Heavyweight champion gave him an unexpected shoulder tap. This hilarious incident perfectly showcases Tyson’s ability to blend humor with his deadly force, catching even the seasoned UFC head honcho by surprise.
Mike Tyson bullied Dana White off his seat
On a private jet, both Mike Tyson and Dana White are featured in the video. The formidable Tyson, appearing unexpectedly, smacks Dana on the shoulder and gestures for him to vacate his seat, even though Dana seemed settled.
Stunned, White could only laugh at this audacious jesting taking place high above the skies. Despite Tyson’s playful actions startling Dana, it was evident that he harbored a level of caution and didn’t wish to provoke Iron Mike. Tyson casually took his seat, placed a neck pillow, and closed his eyes.
Tyson while smacking Dana’s shoulder said, “Hey Common, move it!”, Dana said,”Well I liked this seat.” To which Tyson said, “Yeah, i liked it better!” and went to sleep.
The video reveals that Tyson played a practical joke on White, and it seemed to have its intended effect, as Dana appeared genuinely startled and subdued by the surprise, emphasizing the humor in the situation.
Mike Tyson addressed why he’d never succeed at UFC
One of the greatest boxers to have ever lived, Mike Tyson, has made some startling claims regarding his potential to compete in the UFC. Mike used to knock people out because of his strength but he believes he would have failed in the octagon.
The reason stated by ‘Iron Mike’ is quite weird. In an interview Mike was asked about his chances to fare well as an MMA fighter. Tyson replied, “I don’t know what I would do in the UFC, because I watched the UFC a couple of times, and I watched these guys step on people’s feet.”
He added, “And I have the worst feet in the world, and if somebody stepped on my feet, I would totally tap out and just give up. It would be a no-brainer.”
Tyson stated that he wouldn’t be able to fight in the UFC because he has the worst feet in the world. Alongside his intimidating and demanding demeanor, Tyson seems to have a lighthearted and playful side.
