Alexander Randle "Alex" White[3] (born October 22, 1988) is an American mixed martial artist, who competes as a featherweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.


Born and raised Tuscumbia, Missouri, 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 burned his vocal cords, damaged his hearing and contributed to a minor speech impediment. As a young adult, White was in and out of homelessness for a time before discovering combat sports: First, boxing, then mixed martial arts.[4][5]

Mixed martial arts career

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.[4]

Ultimate Fighting Championship

White made his promotional debut on April 19, 2014 at UFC on Fox 11 against Estevan Payan, replacing an injured Mike Brown.[6] He won his debut via first round KO.[7]

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.[8] He lost the back-and-forth fight via knockout due to punches in the third round.

White next faced Clay Collard on December 6, 2014 at UFC 181.[9] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

White was expected to face Mark Eddiva on May 16, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 66.[10] However on April 26, it was announced that White suffered an undisclosed injury and was forced out of the bout.[11]

White faced Artem Lobov on February 2, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 82.[12] He won the fight by unanimous decision.[13]

White was expected to face Ryan Hall on July 13, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 91.[14] However, the bout was scrapped on June 28 as White pulled out due to an undisclosed injury. In turn, Hall elected to fight on a different date rather than have the promotion find him a replacement.[15]
