UFC Fighters That Are Also Gamers
Mark Hunt is a legendary striker and former K-1 champion. While in the UFC, Hunt continued making a name for himself as a world-class KO artist.
But one thing that fans didn’t know about the New Zealand native is that he’s an avid gamer—one of his favorites being Counter-Strike, which he’s been playing since 1.6.
Unfortunately for fight fans, the studio doesn’t sell cs2 skins of Mark Hunt.
If you’re going to make a list of UFC fighters who are avid gamers, it must include Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Out of all of the UFC fighters that are also gamers, Mighty Mouse is the best known.
The former UFC fighter, now ONE Champion, has been making a comfortable living from streaming himself playing games. After being traded to ONE, Johnson stated that he actually makes more streaming himself playing games than fighting.
Along with his Twitch stream, Demetrious also posts his gameplay footage on his YouTube account. He makes a nice sum of money from gaming while also being a top-ranked Street Fighter player.
Below Demetrious Johnson as the most followed UFC fighter/video game streamer is Max “Blessed” Holloway. Max is known as a featherweight legend, but he also has a nice side gig playing video games.
When Holloway isn’t training, he plays games with his son and talks to his fans online. Right now, Holloway has been putting a lot of time into the latest CoD and GTA games, which he posted online.
Check out his Twitch stream to see his latest gaming ventures and possible fight news.
Sean O’Malley is one of the most enigmatic personalities in the UFC. He has created a brash DGAF attitude, gaining a large fan base.
O’Malley’s knack for business has also led him to one of his dreams of becoming a professional gamer. Since gaining popularity, Sean decided to take the Mighty Mouse route and now streams his gameplay along with his podcast.
If you follow Sean on any platform, you’ll probably see him playing some video games.
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is one of the OG UFC fighters that game. Since retiring from fighting, Jackson has become a popular internet personality.
Rampage has his hands in many ventures, with the most notable being podcasting and streaming. Real fans of Jackson know he is a long-time gamer, who loves FPS and fighting games.
His Twitch channel is quite large, with more than 128k subscribers. Like Max Holloway, Rampage loves CoD, but he also loves Street Fighter, like Mighty Mouse.
Maybe in the future, UFC fans will get to see Jackson go 1-on-1 with the fighters in Street Fighter.
