The pandemic forced many non-TikTok users to sign up for the platform to stay entertained while quarantined.
Many of those were people within the MMA community. Because there are many newbies, we decided to showcase the best accounts you should be following. The semi-pros of TikTok. And make sure you act fast before the app is banned in the United States.
Many people know Andre as a UFC bantamweight, and others know him as that dude who dances a lot. Andre recently started getting more active on TikTok, which is going to be great since his Instagram can get pretty hilarious.
Not only does Ewell dance, he has these characters he’s created (Afro & Perm). He has put together a few fight scenes with the characters while promoting brands too. If you follow Andre, honestly expect to crack up at some point!
Now that Bellator has announced their return this summer, one thing you can do is follow Valerie Loureda on TikTok for more videos like what’s above. She has become one of the more popular fighters for the promotion and has amounted a perfect record thus far under the Bellator banner.
With tons of eyes on her at all times, her next fight will undoubtedly be the biggest one yet. Training with some of the best female athletes in the game, Loureda is destined for superstardom. TikTok, watch out!
Drop everything you are doing and follow Joey. Many people may know him as one of the Co-Founders of The Scrap, but now he’s a MMA manager with some future stars signed to him under Dodge Sports. He’s probably one of the more creative figures in MMA, which you’ll see with all the videos he posts that have gone viral on TikTok.
Apparently, Joey was an early user for the platform. It shows, his videos are hilarious and he’ll likely be someone people continue to hear about as he ventures in his new management journey.
Paige VanZant & Austin Vanderford
Mr. & Mrs. VanZant have become rather popular on TikTok. The former Dancing with the Stars competitor has moved on from her dance partner and has enlisted her husband to fill in the role.
You’ll definitely get a whole lot of dancing and you’ll see a ton of haters in the comment section. But one thing you can’t say, is the couple isn’t entertaining.
The second MMA manager to be featured, Brian is the CEO of Suckerpunch and got on the TikTok trend earlier than most. Although the content isn’t as creative as the others on the list, it is hilarious. He has a dog named Chowder who consistently likes to sneak outside to lay on the pool cover.
And when I say it’s consistent, it’s almost every video Brian has. Brian is a must follow if you’re on the platform! Chowder has generated quite the following for Brian too.
Megan is a giant and we all love when she towers over the other women while conducting post-fight interviews in Invicta FC. Although she doesn’t have a fight booked at the moment, Megan has joined TikTok and you should definitely follow.
Not all fighters are good at TikTok and Megan is getting there, but she posts consistently. She’s been doing some dances on the platform, you’ll see some fight clips, her with her dog, and even an epic video of her chugging bears like Steve Austin on 3:16 Day.
