Dana White could be the coolest boss in the world after the head of the UFC followed through on his call and gave viral video sensation Summer Tapasa a job at the UFC.

Tapasa made headlines in the US after a video appeared of her taking down a would-be shoplifter when she was working at Best Buys.

But after White found out Tapasa no longer worked for the company, he offered to give her a job when he posted on Instagram: "I WANT HER TO WORK FOR ME”.

And that is exactly what White did.

Ahead of Conor McGregor’s return to the octagon, where he meets Donald Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246 at T-Mobile Arena, Tapasa was spotted at the weigh-in.

But in a bigger shock, she took White’s spot in between McGregor and Cerrone during the face-off.

Fans on social media couldn’t get enough of the move.

The UFC officially announced White has offered Tapasa a job, but the details haven’t been confirmed.

UFC fans have been stunned at the sizeable difference between purses Conor McGregor and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone will receive ahead of their showdown.

McGregor, the former featherweight and lightweight champion who will fight for the first time in 15 months on Saturday when he meets Donald Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246 at T-Mobile Arena, was always going to pull in huge numbers for his octagon return.

But it was the purse of veteran Cerrone that left UFC fans perplexed.
