Alex White Talks About Drinking Gasoline When He Was Four
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.15.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Alex White (10-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) spoke about drinking gasoline by accident at the age of four, which led to his permanent speech impediment and a scarring of his vocal cords. He will fight Lucas Martins (14-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on Wednesday at UFC Fight Night 45 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The fight airs on FOX Sports 1 at 7 PM ET.

On drinking gasoline: "I didn't know someone drank all (the juice) and that my dad decided to pour gasoline in it while he was messing with the carburetor. I took that jug and drank out of it. Next thing I knew, I woke up in the hospital. They said it would be a miracle if I survived the night."

On deciding to stay and train with Joe Worden when his parents moved away: "It was a gut feeling to stay. I was homeless for a couple days. My neighbors kind of took me in for a little bit, and then I eventually got a place of my own."

On hoping to inspire people: "I'm a small-town boy, and I'm kind of a role model. If I can overcome everything, other kids can also. I can't let them down. It's not just me losing; a loss would be them losing. I can't have that."
