White’s ‘Lookin For a Fight’ picked up by Netflix

Saturday, August 06, 2016

UFC President Dana White has gotten back to his roots with this new TV show ‘Lookin for a fight’ as he travels the country looking for new talent to fight in the Octagon.

The show has already produced a few fighters that have found success in the UFC, including Mickey Gall who is expected to be the first opponent for CM Punk. If he ever fights…

The series has aired exclusively on YouTube and each episode has been heavily promoted by the organization. The success of the series has peaked the interest of production company and streaming service Netflix, who just picked up the series:

White and his cohorts will leave from Maine and go directly to the site of his next “Lookin’ for a Fight” episode, the Black Hills of South Dakota.

“We go from 7 in the morning until midnight every day, but we have an absolute blast doing it. It’s a fun show to film,” White said.

The Bangor and Sturgis visits are the last episodes before the show is picked up by Netflix, an online streaming service with 83 million subscribers that is perhaps best known for the original series “House of Cards.”

“They bought 16 episodes, eight in this country and eight out of the country,” said White. “We’re going to be doing shows in Russia, Thailand, the [United Kingdom] and a bunch of other countries. We’re literally going to go everywhere.”
