Like I said this is the 2nd issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and again there isn’t a lot of MMA news to report with the UFC in between shows.

There is an awesome article about the Antonio Inoki/Muhammed Ali fight that was supposed to be a wrestling math that ended up being pretty much an MMA match before there was MMA as we know it today.   The match was going to be worked but ended up being a shoot.  A lot of people look at this match against Inoki as the beginning of the end for Ali as Inoki did a lot of damage to Ali’s legs from all of the leg kicks Inoki did.
Here is a link to my blog that has the story C&P’ed from this weeks Observer.
