When Dana White and five UFC fighters went down to Quantico Marine Corps Base to challenge a few Marines to a martial arts contest, they were not ready for what was about to happen to them:
General John James Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Forces to victory over Germany in World War I once declared, “The deadliest weapon in the world is a MARINE and his rifle!”
Indeed, when White and some of the greatest Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighters went up against these Marines to see who was really superior at hand to hand mixed martial arts, the result was maybe not what you would expect:
Watch for yourself:
What is so amazing to me that you don’t really think about often is how our Marines aren’t just trained to fight with their bear hands like other fighters, but they use weapons too.
I couldn’t believe how out of their depth those UFC guys were when up against our American warriors!
