Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson punked MMA president Dana White on Instagram. 

Tyson forced White to change airplane seats in the said video, per MMAJunkie.com: 

"When it comes to former boxing great Mike Tyson and UFC President Dana White, perhaps it's not the bromance it seems to be. 

"From the not-really-news department, White today posted an Instagram video saying he 'got punked' while sharing the UFC corporate jet with Tyson. 

"Check out the video above. 

"Tyson has been a fixture at UFC events and public relations gigs over the past few years. White says he's a big Tyson fan, and the UFC boss can often be found cageside with the 47-year-old retired slugger on fight nights. In fact, UFC lightweight contender T.J. Grant once nabbed a $50,000 'Knockout of the Night' bonus after Tyson convinced White to give it to him." 

But that's not the end of it. 

In another prank, Tyson wrote "D - - K" on White's forehead while he fell asleep inside the plane, according to another MMAJunkie.com update

"After forcing Dana White to give up his seat, boxing great Mike Tyson wasn't finished with the UFC president on a recent flight. 

"On Tuesday, the bosom buddies put together a funny Instagram video in which Tyson forced White to change seats on the UFC company jet. A smug Tyson then settles in with his neck pillow while a dejected White looks on. 

"While the video clearly involved a little acting, it's not clear if the follow-up prank was serious or not. Probably not, but it still made for a funny video. 

"As White wrote: 'Alright it's official no more flying with @miketyson!!! #ufc #miketyson #sharpie #dontfallasleep" 

In another recent development, Tyson said the NFL's Washington Redskins should change their name. He made the declaration at a June 5 press conference at Turning Stone Casino, per The Washington Post's Dan Steinberg: 

"Meanwhile, Mike Tyson came out against the name. This was during a recent appearance at Turning Stone Casino, which is owned and operated by the Oneida tribe that has led much of the opposition to the name in recent months. 

"'What's the difference between the Washington Redskins and the Washington Black Bucks or Black Coons?' Tyson asked his interviewer. 'What's the difference between that?'

"'There isn't,' the interviewer said. 

"'Exactly,' Tyson said, 'exactly. It's just common sense. The Washington Redskins. That's what the Army in the 19th century called them: Redskins. The cavalry called them the Redskins, a derogatory term. Redskins. Evern your kids know that's derogatory.'" 

Tyson last fought in 2005. He finished with a record of 50 wins, six losses and two no contests with 44 knockouts. 

He launched Iron Mike Productions in Aug. 2013 to launch his new career as a boxing promoter.

It takes a rare kind of fight to make one pine for a boxer to be knocked out after the bell, but Rances Barthelemy-Argenis Mendez II Thursday on Fox Sports 1 stirred that odd sort of nostalgia. Barthelemy won clearly this time, and deserved to, but at least the first meeting had some fireworks and controversy thanks to the knockdowns, including the one that ended matters between rounds. Barthelemy was obviously the superi ...
