Dana White launches boxing reality show

Dana White confirmed through USA Today that he will produce a boxing reality show on Discovery Channel entitled The Fighters, an eight part series. Depending on how The Fighters raters go, does this give wind to having White and Zuffa start its own boxing promotion?

"What I wanted to do was take a look inside boxing at these characters," White said. "We basically used boxing as a model of what not to do when we built UFC," White says. "Whatever boxing did, we did the opposite."


White will act as producer along side with Craig Piligian, a longtime TV producer who has created such reality hits on Discovery as American Chopper and Dirty Jobs.

"With The Fighters we really wanted to get back to the roots of boxing in Southie, where the sport is so integral to the culture," said Piligian. "These fighters put everything on the line, and I believe this show will breathe new life into boxing."

Will there be more dealings with the Discovery Channel?

What do you think Mania?
