When Dana White offered a job to a female Best Buy security guard who manhandled a male alleged shoplifter back in December ... HE WASN'T KIDDING!
You remember Summer Tapasa -- the woman who was FIRED from her Best Buy gig when surveillance video of the December incident went viral ... showing her beating up a suspected shoplifter to keep him from leaving the store.
Now, Dana has announced he's brought Summer on board as a full-time UFC staffer!
"I brought her out to Vegas. I offered her a job here. She went back to Hawaii, she weighed all her options and she decided to work for UFC. She is now a UFC employee, so for all of you thinking about f**king around here at UFC, you will get your ass whooped by Summer,” White said.
Summer also shot a video -- saying, “My name is Summer Tapasa and I am a UFC corporate security officer."
"I have been working with UFC for eight days and I am looking forward to expanding my career and hopefully moving on up."
Congrats to Summer -- and our condolences to anyone who ever tries to steal anything out of UFC headquarters in Vegas.
