Carlos Newton on Fighting and Running

Canada's first UFC champion, Carlos Newton, is a very well-read and philosophical fighter. The former UFC welterweight champ notes that fighting is the first Olympic sport, Pankration, and always felt that MMA was going to the top. Back in 2003 Carlos said the following about MMA:

“I believe it’s going to head in North America right to the top, that is an honest opinion, because I don’t have to tell you KFC smells good, you just got to smell it; it’s the same thing, this sport just looks good when you look at it.”
Newton actually ended up being dead on with this prediction.
