Want to be a UFC matchmaker? Now’s your chance – well, at least for one fight.

The UFC, its president Dana White, and actress Halle Berry have teamed up for a raffle-style contest with 100 percent of proceeds going to four charities: Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen, and No Kid Hungry.

The winner will get a handful of prizes including a UFC VIP Experience, the opportunity to go to dinner with Berry, and more.

Perhaps the most unique prize, however, is the opportunity to matchmake a UFC fight. In a recent interview with TMZ, White dished on the never-before-offered opportunity.

“(The winner) will sit in in a matchmaking meeting, and I’m actually going to let them make a fight,” White said.

So what happens if the winner wants to make an unpopular matchup? White said matchmaking isn’t one person calling the shots. The winner will sit in on a meeting with the UFC brass where hopefully they can all agree.

“There’s a process to the matchmaking,” White said. “What happens is there are four of us: Sean Shelby, Mick Maynard, Hunter Campbell, and me. So it’s not this (thing where) I walk in and go ‘We’re doing this, that, and the other thing.’ It’s a process. We argue. We fight. ‘This ain’t gonna happen. We can’t do this. We can’t do that.’

“It’s a long drawn-out process that goes on. They’ll be part of the bickering and the arguing and we’ll see where he comes out in the end and what he gets.”
