Alex “The Spartan” White, born ( October 22, 1988) and raised in Tuscumbia, Missouri, where he grew up with his family.
White was critically injured as a toddler when he mistakenly drank gasoline placed in a milk jug near other jugs that were filled with lemonade. The gasoline accident burnt his vocal cords, damaged his hearing and contributing to a minor speech impediment. As a young adult, White was in and out of homelessness for a time before discovering combat sports. First, in boxing, then in mixed martial arts.
White began his mixed martial arts career in 2009, and turned professional the following year. Along the way he compiled an undefeated record on the regional circuit, competing mostly in his native Missouri before signing with the UFC in March 2014. White made his promotional debut on April 19, 2014 at UFC against Estevan Payan, replacing an injured Mike Brown. He won his debut via first round KO, winning a 50k bonus for knockout of the night.
White faced Lucas Martins on July 16, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 45, again as a short notice replacement, filling in for an injured Jim Alers. He lost the back-and-forth fight via knockout due to punches in the third round.
Alex has come a long way in his life and with his MMA career. We are very proud to have him as part of the MMA Futures Grey Hat Team. We look forward to great things from this young man in the near future.
