Leave it to Don King to make a fool of himself when it comes to talking about MMA or "ultimate fighting" as everyone in the newspapers refers to it these days.

What an idiot....he clearly doesnt have an absolute clue what he is talking about.How can he describe UFC as "going to the death" when people often die in boxing and not in MMA.It nearly always seems to be the promoters talking shit about MMA and not actual boxers.

barbarianism is trying to turn ali and tyson into raciasts and then robbing every dollar you can out of em


the only reason he doesnt want any involvement in "ultimate fighting" is because the checks arent as big as boxing

he is very ignorant if he thinks that, he is very jealous because
UFC " ultimate fighting" (as King calls it)is putting him out of business!!
MMA IS MUCH MORE INTERESTING, BETTER, BALLSIER, and its putting King OUT of business!!!!!!!!
