Mike Tyson lays a smack on Dana White

We’re guessing not too many people slap UFC President Dana White around, but then again, not too many people are Mike Tyson.

In a video posted to White’s Instagram account, the former heavyweight champ and sometimes Vegas showman can be seen laying a meaty right backhand to the UFC boss’ shoulder, before kicking White out of his seat on a plane.

Tyson can also be seen writing something inappropriate on a sleeping White’s head in another Instagram post.

Now, before we get ahead of ourselves and call this a major escalation of the ongoing boxing vs. MMA debate, we should point out that White and Tyson are known to be good friends, and the Instagram posts were probably all in good fun.

Nothing sounded fun about that smack though. Yikes.
