The “Sandman” partnering up with the UFC? Who would’ve thought?

Adam Sandler continues to make great quality movies and TV shows later in his career, even dipping into more serious roles with critically acclaimed films like Uncut Gems and Hustle.

Many know him for his insane run of comedy classics in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, with movies like Billy Madison, Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, and Mr. Deeds.

The comedy legend pretty much has the freedom to do any project he wants to at this point, and it looks like he’ll be leaning on some of his comedy-sports chops for this new project with the UFC.

Dana White, president of the UFC, recently had an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show and was speaking on some developments the organization had in the works when he shared information about the potential collaboration with Adam Sandler.

White mentioned a documentary that goes behind the scenes of the UFC that is actively being developed, but more excitingly mentioned a UFC workplace comedy show that is being connected to Adam Sandler.

During the interview, Dana states:

“We have a documentary, we’re doing a deal with Roku where we’re filming a documentary behind the scenes of the UFC.

You guys will see all the behind the scenes stuff. We’re working on that, and we’re also working on a show right now with Adam Sandler that’s a comedy about, you know, working in the offices at the UFC.”

The always electric Pat McAfee was pretty excited about the revelation, saying:

“It’s gonna be a hit, Sandman’s involved, it’s going to be a home run.

I couldn’t have heard better f***ing news than Dana White and the Sandman are teaming up together.”

Adam Sandler has previously worked with the UFC when his production company Happy Madison helped with the 2012 film Here Comes the Boom, which featured comedic actor Kevin James in a story that revolved around the UFC.

As far as when to expect the show to become available, the series seems to be in very early stages of development and nothing has been set in stone.

But like Pat McAfee touched on, a team up with the Sandler and White should produce some “home run” comedy material.
