With few regional shows going on these days, UFC president Dana White hasn’t been able to scout on location during his stay on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. However, that hasn’t stopped him from going out with pals Michael Bisping and Matt Serra in recent weeks.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic’s demolition of regional MMA promotions, the trio of MMA notables still jumped on the opportunity to have a good time and film a spinoff of “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight” entitled “Dana White: Lookin’ Forward to a Fight.”
Former UFC fighter and current MMA coach Din Thomas was expected to join White, Serra, and Bisping. However, he tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in Abu Dhabi and was placed in quarantine.
After arrivial, White, Serra, and Bisping start their adventure by going pearl diving. On the boat, they try on traditional regional garb and crack jokes. From there, the trio goes rock climbing. The episode finishes up after the gang goes indoor skydiving.
Check out “Dana White: Lookin’ FWD to a Fight” in the video above.
