Summer Tapasa-Sataraka has a new job with the UFC.
The former Best Buy employee, who went viral last December for hiring a suspected thief, has accepted a position as a UFC security officer.
Immediately after seeing the video of the incident, UFC President Dana White said he wanted Tapasa-Sataraka to work for him. He also claimed on Instagram that the 24-year-old was fired from her job due to the argument with the potential thief who violated best buy policy.
