In this article we’ll look at the funniest MMA fighter impressions of all-time, from stars mimicking their peers through to professional comedians doing hilarious parodies of some of the sport’s biggest names.
Din Thomas – Stephen A. Smith
In addition to being a former UFC fighter, starring alongside Dana White and Matt Serra on the ‘Lookin’ For A Fight’ series and training other world class fighters, Din Thomas has also performed improv and studied acting over the years, and he recently showed off what he can do with this spot-on impression of ESPN boxing and basketball talking-head Stephen A. Smith.
Smith had been coming under fire from sections of the MMA community at the time, including Joe Rogan, for calling Donald Cerrone’s performance against Conor McGregor “a disgrace” during UFC 246’s post-fight analysis, while suggesting that he’d “quit” the fight early.
Days later, laughably bad video footage of Smith hitting mitts was posted online, leading to fans roasting him for his performance (including boxing coach and analyst Teddy Atlas who quipped, “what, are you trying to hit a pigmy?”) in response to his bizarrely low left hook.
Needless to say this gave Thomas ample opportunity to poke fun of Smith in his laugh-out-loud parody of the video, which has been watched over 650,000 times on Twitter.
