Dana White shares his thoughts on Alex Pereira's "gangster" move at UFC 300

UFC President Dana White heaped praise on Alex Pereira's composure and fighting spirit following his dominant first-round knockout victory at UFC 300.

Pereira, the light heavyweight champion, retained his title in emphatic fashion against Jamahal Hill. In the post-fight press conference, White was specifically asked about a crucial moment in the fight.

Responding to this White elaborated on the "insane moment," highlighting Pereira's toughness:

"Oh yeah, yeah. You left the part out. He [Pereira] got hit in the groin, he tried to stay, he's like uh-uh. And then knocks him out. Yeah, I agree with you, sir. That was incredibly gangster."

The "gangster" moment White referred to involved Pereira absorbing a blatant illegal groin kick from Hill. Despite the blow, Pereira remained laser-focused, refusing to take a timeout from referee Herb Dean.

Just seconds later, Pereira capitalized on Hill's lowered guard, landing a devastating left hook that sent the challenger crashing to the canvas. Pereira finished the fight with a flurry of ground strikes, securing his first title defense dominantly.
