UFC fighter calls out Kanye West over antisemitic comments and support of Adolf Hitler

UFC fighter calls out Kanye West over antisemitic comments and support of Adolf Hitler

UFC fighter Natan Levy has called out Kanye West, after the US rapper praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party on Alex Jones' podcast.

Last week, awful human being West went on Jones' Infowars programme and managed to make the Sandy Hook denier, who had to pay a lot of money for that stance, look relatively well meaning.

The US rapper said he liked Hitler on Jones' show, with the presenter starting the conversation by claiming it was unfair for people to compare the artist to the man responsible for the death of six million Jewish people.

It all came in the wake of previous antisemitic comments from the 45-year-old, including ones that had got him banned from Twitter, before Elon Musk bought the social media company and allowed him back on.

The musician, from Atlanta, Georgia, is unlikely to roll back on his latest comments, even though he's once again been banned by Musk from Twitter.

And with no apology, or possible reasonable explanation, forthcoming, West now has to be careful of coming across an MMA fighter who wants to knock his block off.

UFC star Levy, who is Jewish, won his latest fight, against Genero Valdez, on Saturday night and reacted by caling West out, as you can see in the video below.

"I think life is too short to hate, so to all these hateful people it sucks for you. I pity you," Levy said following his latest win inside the octagon.

"Kanye West, if you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro."

The Israeli also revealed that he's had antisemitic abuse on social media adding, "Trust me, I’ve noticed it. I get a lot of lovely DMs all the time," Levy added.

"I am Jewish, it’s what I am, it’s the way I was born. I’m very proud of it and I will fight for it. I will fight for my people in the octagon, or wherever need be.

"I will not stand for any antisemitism. I won’t stand for any racism, not around me. Don’t bully anyone around me, or I’m going to find you."

The lightweight was picking up his second victory in UFC, both by unanimous decision, having lost his debut fight in the same fashion.

His win over Valdez took the Israeli's professional record to 8-1 and personally I'd love to see it get to 9-1 by smacking West around the octagon for five rounds, don't let the referee stop it.

It's not actually the first time that someone has offered to see the "College Dropout" recording artist take part in a fight, after previous social media comments.

His spat with comedian Pete Davidson, whilst the SNL star was dating the rapper's ex wife Kim Kardashian, led to some huge interest from fans of any of those involved.

It led to Jake Paul offering the pair of them $60 million in order to copy the YouTubers own success and get in the ring for a boxing fight.

Paul also wanted himself vs Conor McGregor and Vladimir Putin vs Elon Musk on the card, and people wonder why boxing has its critics...
