Do you remember Dana White’s old video blogs before “Embedded” came along? It was the same setup as the popular vlog series, but instead of focusing on the fighter’s journey through fight week, it detailed White’s preparations for the events leading up to fight night.
Well, Dana is back at it again, and this time he is bringing his “Lookin’ for a Fight” buddies with him, as the UFC’s head honcho, Matt Serra and Din Thomas are the center of the newest — and limited — video blog series chronicling their adventures in Abu Dhabi.
From the press release:
In anticipation of UFC 242: Khabib vs. Poirier taking place this Saturday at The Arena in Abu Dhabi, UFC will be releasing a special episodic vlog all fight week long titled Dana White: Lookin’ FWD to a Fight, which will follow the UFC President Dana White, UFC Hall of Famer Matt Serra and coach Din Thomas on the trip of a lifetime as the guys experience the best of the world-class destination, from restaurants to racetracks, wildlife to wild rides, and more. The first episode of Dana White: Lookin’ FWD to a Fight was released today and features the guys getting chauffeured to Yas Marina Circuit by the Arabian Gazelles. There, they drive some of the fastest cars in the world on the F1 track, site of the annual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Awe the perks of being rich and famous, as well as being friends with the rich and famous.
Of course, White and Co. are in the United Arab Emirates to take in this weekend’s (Sat., Sept. 7, 2019) UFC 242 pay-per-view (PPV) event which will feature a Lightweight title unification match between division king, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and interim title holder, Dustin Poirier.
