Dana White hails Alex Pereira's 'incredibly gangster' moment at UFC 300

UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira‘s emphatic knockout victory in the main event of UFC 300 gained high praise from promotional frontman Dana White.

White was asked about Pereira’s first-round finish against Jamahal Hill in the post-event press conference. In response, he went into detail about the moment and praised Pereira for being a “gangster”. He said:

“[What did you think about that insane moment, and ten seconds later knocking him out, of course] Oh yeah, yeah. You left the part out. He [Pereira] got hit in the groin, he tried to stay, he’s like uh-uh. And then knocks him out. Yeah, I agree with you sir. That was incredibly gangster.”

White also seemed to believe the Brazilian’s follow-up celebration mirroring Italian TikToker Khaby Lame was a “bada***” move.

‘Poatan’ exhibited an elite degree of focus as he brushed aside an illegal groin kick from his opponent by refusing to allow referee Herb Dean to intervene and allow him a timeout. All the while,Alex Pereira’s gaze remained trained on Hill and seconds later, he threw a left hook that floored ‘Sweet Dreams’ and followed it up with hammer fists to mark his first title defense in the UFC.
