Dana White has labored with some ‘dangerous motherf-ckers’ through the years, however three males stand out because the scariest and most intimidating fighters he’s ever labored with.
Derrick Lewis is on the prime of the listing, a person who’s as intense and intimidating as they arrive, save for his humorousness. White has loved working with Lewis for the final eight years however dreads to suppose what would occur if he ever obtained on the mistaken facet of ‘The Black Beast’.
“At all times whenever you’re fucking round with the heavyweights, like Derrick Lewis,” White stated throughout a latest interview with Paddy Pimblett (h/t MMA Information). “When Derrick Lewis involves a staredown, the one factor that makes him even a bit bit not scary is that he truly has a humorousness. He’s humorous generally. However, god forbid you get in there with Derrick Lewis and he doesn’t like the opposite fighter. I used to be in between him and one other man one time on the faceoff, and I began making an attempt to cease him. I would as effectively not f***ing be there.”
Then there’s Jon Jones, the previous two-time UFC gentle heavyweight champion, broadly considered the perfect — and maybe essentially the most intimidating — fighter of all time. White stated Jones “is a type of guys too. Jon Jones is a freak of nature.”
Third on the listing is Alex Pereira, a person who gained the middleweight championship after simply 4 fights within the UFC and the one fighter to KO Israel Adesanya in kickboxing and MMA. White described ‘Poatan’ as a ‘stone-cold killer’.
“One of many scariest guys and intimidating dudes proper now could be [Alex] Pereira,” he stated. “While you take a look at the man he seems like a stone-cold fucking killer. Off the highest of my head, these are the three that come to thoughts.”
White will attend UFC 282 this Saturday at T-Cellular Enviornment in Las Vegas, that includes a lightweight heavyweight title conflict between Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev as the principle occasion.
