The Rock reflected on the passing of Muhammad Ali who passed away aged 74 on Friday:

“I was in the air last night flying from Atlanta to London when I got the text from a close friend that within’ a few hours we were going to lose Muhammad.

“Like me, Ali inspired generations around the world to be hungry to achieve, work as hard as you possibly can, to be a great as you possibly can be and make sure that not a day goes by where you don’t do your absolute best to make the world smile and feel good. Feel inspired. And feel that no matter how hard times may be, there’s always hope for tomorrow.

“From hanging out with you in New Zealand as this little punk kid, to years later as a WWE rookie when you whispered to me ‘Can you rumble?’ to a few years later when you bestowed upon me ‘The People’s Champ’ moniker. I will always be grateful for the impact you’ve had on me. Thank you and I’ll miss you.

“Much love and strength to the Ali family. Rest in love and light Champ. You’ll always be the Greatest of All Time. And pretty.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
