UFC President Dana White has given a few pro wrestlers the opportunity to test themselves in the Octagon, most notably CM Punk and Brock Lesnar. On Friday, the UFC boss flipped the script, and tried his hand at professional wrestling.
White appeared in the ring with former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra, and pro wrestlers Derrick King, and Jerry Lawler. To be frank, he didn’t really do a whole lot, other than attempting to shake Maria Starr off his back, but the UFC president’s pro wrestling debut is definitely worth a watch all the same.

White, of course, is not the only member of the UFC family to move to pro wrestling of late. UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington has also been involved in the pro wrestling world recently, and hopes to one day win championships in the sport.
“I want to be the first two-sport world champion in poker and fighting, and eventually pro wrestling and WWE,” Covington said on a recent episode of BJPENN.COM Radio.
And then, of course, there’s Ronda Rousey, who has been thrilling fans in the WWE ring.
Do you think Dana White is cut out for pro wrestling?
