Congratulations White and Serra for big pin in pro wrestling event!
UFC president Dana White has two proprietary media properties for finding new talent. In Lookin’ for a Fight, White, former welterweight champion Matt Serra, and top ATT coach Din Thomas go on the road to scout talent at regional events. By contrast, on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, the mountains come to Muhammad.
On Friday White and Serra were Lookin’ for a Fight and detoured to an independent pro wrestling show called Beale Street Brawl in Memphis, Tennessee. Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler is to Memphis as Robert Frost is to Vermont, so The King was front and center.

Unfortunately, there was some major rule breaking on Friday. White, Serra, Lawler (The King, not Robbie) all helped Memphis wrestler Derrick King get the highly-coveted win over Dustin Starr.
A female Jiu-Jitsu expert tried to stop White with a high-level Hadaka Jime, but was unsuccessful.

While White, Serra, and Thomas were at a pro wrestling show on Friday, the trio will be at V3 fights on Saturday, also in Memphis. The shenanigans will eventually stream on UFC Fight Pass.
