UFC stars and their undying interest towards gaming

Demetrious Johnson is just one of the many UFC greats who also love gaming. The most popular name on this list is Max Holloway, who constantly plays Call of Duty Warzone. Even before his critical title fights with Alex Volkanovski, he used to relax by playing the Battle Royale title.
