SEE IT: UFC spots video of Best Buy FEMALE employee jump suspected shoplifter, gets call to be UFC STAR

A Hawaii Best Buy employee said “not today” right before Christmas when she saw a man trying to leave the store without paying for expensive merchandise — again — so she did what she had to do. She blocked him from the door and took him down.

Summer Tapasa-Sataraka lost her job for her efforts, although she said she was quitting anyway. But he drew the attention of Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), who announced he was flying her from Hawaii to Las Vegas for the January 18 MMA (mixed martial arts) fight between Conor McGregor and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and might be interested in having her work for him.

White told TMZ he was “dead serious” about the job offer.

“We’ve talked to her on the phone,” he said. “She’s got an incredible personality. She’s my kind of girl!”

“I’m gonna rock star the sh*t out of her and then we’ll see what happens!”

On her Facebook page, Tapasa-Sataraka said she’d seen the same man walk out of the store a few days before with the same expensive speaker system, but she was off duty and shopping herself at the time.

“He went for the same speaker & when he saw that one exit was busy, he ran for the other one closest to me & I just kept thinking.. not today!!” she wrote. ” … I did this bc he needs to know, this needs to stop.”

Tapasa-Sataraka thanked people for supporting her but said no need to worry — she’d already given her two weeks notice when the incident took place.
