White: New TUF Contestant "scared the living s*** out of everyone."
UFC President Dana White has seen a fair share of exceptional talent while observing the contestants on The Ultimate Fighter. He has witnessed a number of athletes impress him with their dedication, skill level, and will to finish the fight.
There happens to be one particular fighter from this upcoming season, however, that seems to have garnered a significant amount of attention from White and the other contestants for a much different reason.
According to White via MMAFighting.com, there is one fighter living in that house that has struck an abnormal amount of fear in the other contestants because he has a reputation for sending his opponents to the hospital upon victory.
"We have a guy on this season of The Ultimate Fighter, every fight he's in, someone goes to the hospital."
The way White talks about this individual makes him sound truly dangerous, wielding a violent style we may not have seen before on The Ultimate Fighter. White went on to describe the fear this unnamed fighter strikes in the hearts of his fellow contestants.
"The whole house is terrified of this guy. F-- terrified. Everybody. I picked this fight, and this guy is lined up with the guy I'm telling you about, and the guy has a nervous breakdown in the house over the weekend. Has a f-- nervous breakdown. Freaks out and has a nervous breakdown. This guy scared the living s--- out of everyone. It's awesome."
When was the last time Dana White has talked up a TUF competitor like this? Could this athlete really be the most ferocious fighter to come out of the series yet? Season 17 is unquestionably becoming the most talked-about season in TUF history, as if the drama between coaches Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen didn't promise enough shock value already.
This mysterious fighter is solidifies just how incomparably exciting Team Jones vs Team Sonnen will be. Between the feuding coaches, new time slot, and rumors of this especially brutal contestant, it's safe to say that season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter will be nothing short of perfect in the eyes of UFC fans around the world.
