And not only that, but he actually discussed MMA without trashing it in favor of boxing. The famed boxing promoter, still going strong at 78 with slightly less but still-electric hair on his head, recently put over UFC while saying he's "the people's promoter. Whatever the people want, I'm going to promote". And that means MMA, particularly a league capable of competing with UFC and thus making MMA as a whole more competitive and not UFC then everyone else.

Don King is one crazy bastard! He's left it too late to take on the UFC but him considering promoting MMA just proves how popular it has become!

but a funny quote.

I was watching Don Kings biography movie on HBO, and there was a scene where he was in the bathroom making a business deal. Don enters with the business man as they are talking, he goes washes his hands, then goes takes a piss at the urinal. He closes the deal and is opening the door of the bathroom to leave and the other guy says, hey aren't u gonna wash your hands. and a evil smirk came across his face as he replied " I wash my hands before i touch my dick"

hahaha if its not funny to u too bad, i cried of laughter when i heard that and now wash my hands before i piss.

Don King helped destroy boxing, the last thing MMA needs is King.
