UFC president Dana White has been officially invited by the Oxford University debate club to speak in to its members on October 13.
Officials from the promotion made the news available earlier today.
White joins a rather exclusive list of speakers invited to the club, including several past presidents and other famous individuals such as Malcom X and Albert Einstein.
“Anyone who knows anything about me knows I always speak my mind and am very passionate about what I do, and the Oxford Union was founded on exactly those principles,” White stated in an official press release. “I’m looking forward to meeting the students, and I know they have a reputation for asking tough questions and expecting straight answers from their guests. That’s exactly what they’ll get from me.”
White’s visit to Oxford University comes just a few days prior to October 16’s UFC 120, which is set for the O2 Arena in London, England featuring a middleweight contest between Michael Bisping and Yoshihiro Akiyama, along with a welterweight tilt between Carlos Condit and British superstar Dan Hardy.
