Dana White vs. Tito Ortiz

Did any of u MMA guys hear about this. Supposedly, Tito Ortiz and Dana White are going to box for charity. Tito brought it up after he beat Shamrock last week. I think that Dana White was a boxing instructor for an aerobics class before he came to the UFC. Should be interesting.

Yes. Tito put this stipulation into his contract when he re-signed with UFC this year. Dana does having some boxing background.

Hopefully it’ll be better than Roddy Piper vs. Mr. T at Wrestlemania 2.

That ‘boxercise’ rumor is older than dirt, but to my knowledge it has never been confirmed (aside from a hilarious but blatantly photoshopped pic of him leading a boxercise class).

What is known is that Dana White does have some amateur boxing experience and began his career as a gym owner and local boxing promoter in Las Vegas area.
