Summer Tapasa was a Best Buy employee working as a security guard not too long ago; but after a video of her using physical force to stop a man from stealing began to gain popularity on the internet, she lost her job. You may be confused as to why she lost her job if she stopped someone from stealing; but in retail stores like Best Buy it is against protocol to stop someone from stealing in the manner that she did.
Many people have seen this video of Summer and applauded her for her efforts in stopping the man from stealing from the store. Little did she know that this video would change her life forever; this is because among those people who came across the video was Dana White who is the President of the UFC. After seeing the video, Dana immediately got in touch with her and offered her an opportunity of a lifetime. Summer was offered a job with the UFC, and even took the spot of Dana White in the middle of the face off between Connor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, just to be sure everything went over smoothly.
The vice president of communications Lenee Breckenridge even went as far as to say that Summer could potentially be of more value to the UFC than originally thought according to espn. In the end, Summer Tapasa losing her job at Best Buy may have been the biggest win of her life.
