Alex White Says Nearly Dying as a Child Led Him To MMA
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.17.2014

Alex White recently spoke with MMAjunkie about how he got into MMA and more. Check out the highlights:

On nearly dying s a child from drinking gasoline: "We were going to Disney World for a vacation, and we had some car problems, so my dad pulled over. We were playing tag, and I got thirsty. We had a jug that we kept lemonade in, but someone had drank it all, and my dad had put some gas in it. I didn't know. I took a big drink, and I just passed out...They took me to the hospital, and they told me I died on the way there before they revived me. The doctors told my parents if I survived that I would probably be handicapped. The next morning, I was in a bubble, and I was pretty much back to normal. But it messed up my voice box, and I got made fun of for that."

On the accident changing how he was as a person: "That's one of the reasons I never hold myself as better than anybody else, because of how I was treated. It made me work really hard at what I do."

On what led him to MMA: "Before I started doing this, there was really nothing to do in a small town but party. I got tired of partying and all that. I wanted to try something new and see how far I could push myself."

On his fight with Adam Rider at Rumble at the Chase this weekend: "I'm hoping this is my last local one. I'm trying to train hard for when I get my chance because I hope it's coming soon."
