From UFC president Dana White to color commentator Joe Rogan, fans see a lot of successful bald heads in the UFC. Furthermore, there are great fighters in the history of the company who have created an identity out of their baldness. Fighters like Anderson Silva, Kamaru Usman, Randy Couture, Anthony Smith, BJ Penn, Tito Ortiz—the list goes on. The current featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, also joined the club in 2021. The audience was not prepared to see this new change in him, and many reacted to his new baldness. However, more than the star’s new look, it was Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s hilarious reply to the video of bald Volkanovski that caught the attention.
