Ring of Combat 59 features five title fights on Friday night at The Tropicana in Atlantic City.

It also includes a few special guests cage-side, namely UFC president Dana, former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra and former UFC fighter Din Thomas.

They’ll be in attendance for an upcoming episode of “Lookin’ for a Fight,” a UFC reality web series where the trio tours the country looking for new fighters as hijinks ensue along the way.

This is the second time White brought the show to Ring of Combat. The first time, in November 2015, the UFC signed Queens’ Randy Brown.
