I’m not sure penning this article under my name is such a great idea. Anonymous probably is a better idea. While I might be physically bigger than most of the MMA fighters on this list, I am in no way as tough. Not even close. So making fun of the tattoo choices of these trained killers probably (actually, definitely) isn’t the safest choice. But, as long as no one doxes me online, hopefully I’ll be safe here behind my keyboard.
So (deep breath), here are the worst tattoos in MMA history.
Aleksandar never quite reached the heights in the sport as his famous brother, Fedor, but in terms of horrible tattoos, he takes the cake. Yes, that is the Grim Reaper holding a baby. Thanks for asking.
I don’t think I can say anything that adds to this visual. Just soak it all in. Nightmare fuel.
Where to begin? A tiger belly button? A King Gorilla with wings, eating a heart? When it comes to life choices, Notorious lives up to his nickname.
Belcher’s tattoo of Johnny Cash has to be the worst tribute to the Man in Black.
Weird skulls, huge phallic sword, a tramp stamp of Metallica’s first album. You go tell the Beast Incarnate his tattoos are wack.
Shad Smith never made the UFC, and has lost 25 MMA fights to date, but hopefully he got a nice payout from Tapout.
Apparently former MMA fighter Adrian Perez (career record: 2-12) went by the moniker “The Lunatic”. No argument here.
Speaking of nicknames, do you want to guess UFC vet Darren Elkins’s? If you didn’t guess “The Damage,” then perhaps your brain has accrued some.
Putting a crown tattoo on your throat seems to me like you’re just begging someone to try to knock it off.
