Jimmy Fallon, the gangly host of a his self-titled late-night show on NBC, received some boxing lessons from UFC president Dana White on Tuesday.
White made the appearance as part of a media blitz for the UFC’s new video game, “Undisputed,” which hit stores the same day.
After a brief history of modern MMA time, White helped Fallon strap on gloves and throw punches (and a few roundhouses) at the UFC branded bag.
Audience members, perhaps not accustomed to the sight of two men grappling, tittered at a video clip of a sample game between UFC 98 main eventers Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.
Fallon, looking incongruous in a dapper suit and boxing gloves, first gave himself the nickname, “The Gentleman,” before White dubbed him “Slim Jim” Fallon.
While Fallon touted his reach, he wouldn’t be fighting any time soon.
“I’m scaring the audience members,” he said.
