UFC fighter, Tai Tuivasa: I cried when my uncle told me WWE is fake

Tai Tuivasa is one of the most promising fighters within the UFC. He has extreme quality, he is ready to fight against the best and it seems that his love for martial arts dates back to his childhood. In an interview with The ALLSTARS’s Fine Dining, Tuivasa recalled his childhood and love for WWE, but also his disappointment when he learned that none of it was real.

“F—k yeah, I’ll be the new Rikishi. I’ll get my ass out. I love Rikishi, man. I grew up watching wrestling hard. My nana was a wrestling fan. She still does watch. She’s crazy about it. I remember when my uncle told me it was fake.

I cried for ages. I used to think they were the hardest c—ts, you know what I mean? I used to watch and just be like F—k. Then when he told me it was fake I started watching it and being like, It’s not fake.

Then after that, I couldn’t watch it again for a long time because I was heartbroken.“

Tai Tuivasa on Jon Jones

Tai Tuivasa considers Jon Jones the best UFC fighter of all time. Although his (Jones’) career is full of incidents and a lot of bad things, most still rank him among the best fighters to have gone through the UFC.

Too bad, because he could have turned things around in a completely different direction. "Jones is probably the best MMA fighter of all time. Doesn’t matter f****** [if he’s a light heavyweight or higher]. He’s still a d***head.

He is what he is. I think he’s the greatest MMA fighter of all time, but if you’re an f****** idiot, you’re an f****** idiot. Hitting your missus or whatever, blah, blah, blah. I don’t know the story. Everyone’s got their own things.

If you’re an idiot, you’re an idiot. That’s it. But he still is who he is,” Tai Tuivasa said.
