You’d think it would be difficult to scare a UFC fighter.
Over the last two weeks, the UFC has apparently been working on a hilarious Halloween prank targeting several of its fighters. With the exception of Israel Adesanya, this prank seems to have terrified every single one of the fighters involved.
This prank began with the UFC challenging its fighters to a maze game on a laptop. The fighters, eternally reluctant to back down from a challenge, dialed in on the task at hand. Then, once they were sufficiently focused on the screen, an image of a creepy little girl, straight from a horror movie, popped up on screen with a bloodcurdling scream.
The fighters targeted by this hilarious prank were UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, featherweight contender Jason Knight, and light heavyweight contenders Anthony Smith, Volkan Oezdemir and Gian Villante. Israel Adesanya was also featured, but unfortunately could not be phased, and instead made a joke about a recent Tinder match.
Several of these fighters competed at last weekend’s fight night in Moncton, while Cormier, Adesanya and Knight all fight at UFC 230 this Saturday night inside New York City’s world famous Madison Square Garden.
Watch these world-class fighters scream like frightened children in the video at the top of this post.
