I was a little reluctant to write this article because I know that it will eventually turn into an essay on why Joe Frazier is the true peoples’ champion and that Muhammed Ali simply used race and politics to get to the top and carve his place in American history. I mean, do you guys even realize that Ali actually preached at a Ku Klux Klan rally? You didn’t, I know you didn’t. People say that it was a different time back in the ’70s, but Ali’s actions are atrocious, regardless of temporal location.
The truth is, it’s impossible for me to separate my feeling towards Muhammad Ali and MMA. I guess it’s the same for Dana White, but for entirely different reasons.
A few days ago Muhammad Ali ‘tweeted’ to Dana White, and he absolutely flipped out on social media. Now we all know that it wasn’t actually Ali tweeting, but you better not tell Dana this. Check out this clip from TMZ and props to AFrontKicktotheFace for the +100 news tip.
