Johnny Walker has always had a flair for the dramatic. In his short UFC career, he has amassed a reputation of being one of the craziest fighters to enter the Octagon. From his pre-fight dance to his dangerous post fight celebration – he is someone who simply turns heads towards him.
And if anyone wondered if he opens up his bags of tricks only for the Octagon, then he should see the UFC 244 media day staredowns.
While walking up to the stage to face off against his next challenge, Corey Anderson, Walker purposely tripped on the steps. The Brazilian then scrambled for his cell phone, picked it up, smiled and flashed a selfie. But he wasn’t done with his antics just yet.
Following the face off , Walker slowly turned his head around and comically raised an eyebrow. Needless to say, he made a lot of people burst around in laughter. To top it all off, he grabbed his leg and pretended to labor in pain as he walked off the stage.
Say hello to @Johnnywalkermma… International Man of Mystery. 👀

If anyone hasn’t yet seen the exciting prospect in Walker, this staredown will etch an appropriate painting in their minds about the kind of person he is. Returning from a shoulder injury, he has maintained his cheekiness and in all likelihood will carry it forward to the Octagon as well.
