Pete Sell to Serve as Guest Security Guard on 'Jerry Springer Show'

Pete Sell, who hasn't competed since his first-round loss to Matt Brown at UFC 96 in March, will make his return to a television near you on an upcoming episode of The Jerry Springer Show. "Drago" will serve as a guest security guard on the episode, which was taped on Tuesday in Connecticut, and will air in the coming weeks.

"It's going to be funny, man. I'm going to be singing "Jerry" with everybody else," Sell told FanHouse on Tuesday prior to the taping.

"I don't watch it religiously, but the running gets boring sometimes, you know, you're going on those long 45 minute to 1 hour runs, so I'll definitely have that on sometimes to laugh at the chaos that is going on there."

The Jerry Springer Show has been known to feature some intense brawls, but Sell said he isn't worried about getting hurt.

"Are you kidding? Have you ever watched it? The people over there can't fight. It's hysterical. They're scratching and biting -- it's funny. They can't pull my hair because I don't got none.

"I'll just pretty much wing it. I'll have fun."

Sell has no upcoming fights booked. The UFC cut ties with him after the Brown loss, as it marked his fourth defeat in his last five fights. His lone victory was against Josh Burkman at UFC 90 in his welterweight debut.

"Right now, I'm just really working a lot on my wrestling, trying to become more elusive with my stand-up instead of taking a few to give a few because my luck ran out with that one. I'm definitely trying to get hit less and hurt the guy more."

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski has appeared on The Jerry Springer Show several times in the past. Below is a clip of his September 2007 appearance with then-girlfriend, model Patryca Mikula.
