UFC fighter Natan Levy has called out Kanye West following his unanimous decision win over Genaro Valdez on Saturday night.
The Israeli was signed by MMA’s premier promotion after an impressive Contender Series appearance in 2020 and in Orlando picked up his third UFC victory.
During his post-fight press conference, Levy, who is Jewish, addressed Ye who recently made headlines for anti-Semitic statements which led to him being banned from various social media sites.
After Elon Musk bought Twitter, the musician was welcomed back to the platform only to be banned again for participating in a podcast and praising Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.
Earlier this week, West appeared on The Alex Jones Show in an interview that has since gone viral as he accused the media of unfairly vilifying Hilter.
“Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” he said.
“I also see good things about Hitler. I like everyone. The Jews are not going to tell me that you can like us, and you can like what we do to you with contracts, and you can like what we push with pornography.
“But this guy who invented the highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person has ever done anything good, and I’m done with that.”
Levy replied, “I think life is too short to hate, so for all those haters, it sucks for you. I pity you. Kanye West, if you have a problem with me or mine, come see me, dude.
The 31-year-old said he has witnessed and experienced a rise in anti-Semitism since West began to hatefully denounce the Jewish community.
“Believe me, I noticed it. I get a lot of lovely DMs all the time,” Levy added.
“I’m Jewish, that’s what I am, that’s how I was born. I am very proud of it and I will fight for it. I will fight for my people in the octagon, or wherever.
“I will not support any anti-Semitism. I won’t put up with any racism, not around me. Don’t bully anyone around me, or I’ll find you.
