Top 10 UFC fighters who DO NOT look the part
When it comes to fighters and martial artists, you really should never judge a book by its cover and looks themselves can be very deceiving.
Fighters can certainly come in all shapes and sizes and they don’t necessarily all have to have big muscles and possess facial scars like you would expect a professional cage fighter to look like.
In the following video, we see the best 10 examples of UFC fighters who certainly don’t look the part and this can be due to several different reasons.
One of the common traits covered in this video involve the fighters who have pretty faces. Fighters like Paige VanZant and Sage Northcutt are perhaps the best examples of this and many feel that their skills alone aren’t quite at UFC level and that they are solely in the UFC for their looks alone.
While Northcutt is still very much a work in progress, as many young fighters are, Paige VanZant has had some really good performances thus far in her UFC career and is always making improvements.
Though VanZant is currently riding a 2-fight losing streak, she still has a couple of great wins on her UFC record over tough fighters like Bec Rawlings and Felice Herrig. Plus, don’t forget, Paige went almost five full rounds with the current champ, Rose Namajunas, before eventually succumbing to a rear-naked choke.
Another fighter covered in the video is current flyweight champion and all-time pound for pound great, Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson. In his case, it’s his small stature that may fool many unaware people out there but if you look closely at his ears that should tell you right away that the man’s a badass.
