UFC president Dana White is inviting a woman to UFC 246 after she physically stopped a thief at a Best Buy in Hawaii. A video of Summer, who worked at the Best Buy, has gone viral. It shows her stopping a thief in their tracks as they tried to run outside the store with a product in hand.
Best Buy fired her after the incident and White is not happy about it.
Here is a tweet from Dana White that includes the video of Summer as well as an incredible offer.
White’s tweet reads: “This is Summer. She stopped this punk from getting away with stealing from BestBuy in Hawaii. She got fired for this. Flying her in this weekend and giving her tickets to the McGregor vs. Cowboy fight. I WANT HER TO WORK FOR ME! Get ready for the best weekend of your life Summer.”
Summer will have the weekend of her life courtesy of the UFC president, and it also looks like she may have a new career opportunity.
UFC 246 features the return of the most famous MMA fighter of all time, Conor “Notorious” McGregor. He will be fighting UFC veteran and record holder Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in a match that has been years in the making.

UFC 246 Features Two Fighters in the Main Event That Have Been on a Collision Course for Years
Notorious and Cowboy will be entering the Octagon on Jan. 18 to settle a score that was born four years ago. The two got into it at the UFC Go Big press conference in 2015, and since then, MMA fans around the globe have been waiting for them to square off.
A lot has happened since that press conference for both fighters. In the years after, McGregor became the first-ever UFC double-champ by winning both the UFC featherweight belt and UFC lightweight belt. Notorious held both titles at the same time, but was stripped of the featherweight title and then the lightweight title due to inactivity.
He also fought in a boxing fight against superstar Floyd Mayweather.
For Cowboy, he had gone on to fight for one world title, which he ultimately lost. But, throughout the years, he has been able to earn multiple UFC records, including most wins, most fights, most performance bonuses and most knockdowns. Cowboy has remained an extremely active fighter since 2015, fighting 15 times since the UFC Go Big presser. Interestingly, McGregor has only fought five times in MMA since the encounter with Cerrone.
Both McGregor and Cerrone Are Coming Off Losses
UFC 246 will be the first time Conor McGregor has been inside the cage since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, in Oct. 2018. Coming into this fight, McGregor is technically on a two-fight losing streak, as he lost to Mayweather in their boxing fight. Cowboy is also on a two-fight skid, losing to lightweights Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje.
There are high-stakes going into this fight for McGregor and Cowboy, which adds another layer to this already exciting main event.
