Dana White Hires Former Best Buy Security Guard Summer Tapasa

Summer Tapasa was once a security guard for Best Buy, but she was fired after a video, which would eventually go viral, would show Tapasa blocking a thief who was trying to steal an unknown item from leaving the store.

UFC President Dana White was impressed by what he saw on the video and he invited Tapasa to UFC 246 before offering her a job. Tapasa, after a few months of think over White’s and other job offers, has accepted the job and is now a corporate security officer for the UFC.

White revealed the news in a video posted on Twitter, which also features an appearance from Tapasa:

Adam Guillen Jr. of MMA Mania provided the following transcript of what was side by White and Tapasa in the Twitter video:

“Do you remember the girl Summer that worked for Best Buy as security in Hawaii? Somebody was stealing a TV and she beat his ass and she stopped him from stealing the TV. She got fired by best Buy which I thought was horrible. I brought her out to Vegas. I offered her a job here. She went back to Hawaii, she weighed all her options and she decided to work for UFC. She is now a UFC employee, so for all of you thinking about fucking around here at UFC you will get your ass whooped by Summer,” White said.

“My name is Summer Tapasa and I am a UFC corporate security officer. I have been working with UFC for eight days and I am looking forward to expanding my career and hopefully moving on up,” Tapasa said.
