Dana White Mentioned: “Jiu Jitsu Is Pretty Damn Boring”
The CEO of UFC, Dana White, is a globally successful entrepreneur. Despite the polarizing views on his business methods, he has significantly transformed the martial arts world.
However, what does he think about the martial arts that both of us enjoy? What about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
According to Dana, it’s pretty damn boring”.
Here’s his take on the subject:
Get ready, Jiu-Jitsu’s pretty damn boring.
You go to a sport Jiu-Jitsu match with two guys with gis. You kidding me?
Dana clarified that the experience could vary for individuals who actively participate in training or are die-hard BJJ enthusiasts:
If you’re a hardcore Jiu-Jitsu guy, there’s nothing more exciting. You’re in there, you know what’s going on.
But if you’re a casual fan, even when I was into Jiu-Jitsu and was taking Jiu-Jitsu, I’d go to some of these Jiu-Jitsu matches and I’d want to look at the match over there, like that one sucks too.
It’s not like you’re at a Jiu Jitsu match and you’re, like: “Yeah it’s the greatest time ever”, high-fiving each other and stuff, it’s the same in wrestling too, but some people love it.
