Dana White: “Jiu-Jitsu Is Pretty Damn Boring”

UFC CEO Dana White is one of the most successful businessmen in the world and who has – despite the polarizing opinions about his business practices – helped transform the world of martial arts as a whole.
But… What’s his opinion about the martial art you and I both cherish? What about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Well, in Dana’s opinion, it’s “pretty damn boring”.
Here is what he had to say about the topic:

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 explained that it might be different for people who actually train or who are hardcore fans:

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.
