White fights out of Pontotoc, Miss., holds a 4-4 professional record and a high blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has been a pro since late 2008 and is very well respected among his peers as one of the most talented guys in his area.
He recently began teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Pontotoc and trains at Tupelo BJJ (Team AGEMA). He also credits Memphis Judo and Jiu Jitsu and Team Paragon in Corinth, Miss. as being gyms that have contributed to his success.
What makes Brian special, besides his skill in the cage, is his attitude. If you met him on the street you would likely never guess that he is a seasoned MMA fighter because of his general good nature.
Brian’s attitude is always light-hearted and he is just one of those guys you like to be around as his training partners will attest. One training partner recently said,
“Brian is just a great sportsman and trainer. Guys like Brian make it easy to understand why so many people love the sport and he keeps it interesting for everyone that trains with him, but dude he is a beast in the cage.”
Inside the cage on any given fight night is another story altogether. White brings a white hot atmosphere into the arena with him and always ignites the crowd. He is what most promoters love to have on any card because he effortlessly entertains. Once the bell rings White can be counted on to perform without fail.
White is coming off a 31-second technical knockout/referee stoppage of Michael Massey back in March, and although his upcoming opponent is still to be determined, it is safe to say he will be looking for that same type of spectacular finish.
When we caught up with Brian he was joking around as usual and when asked what message he has for readers he said, “Come watch me fight. Man, I’m amazing!” as he laughed. Brian is a humble guy but loves to see people enjoy the show when he is in the ring.
Brian invites everyone to come to the ICC show on October 23rd. You can learn more about Brian at www.badintentionsmma.com or www.tupelomma.blogspot.com. And, of course, you can connect with him on Facebook.
