What Thoughts Other Athletes Have For Andrew Tate?
Having a bold opinion and thought process for different topics, Andrew easily grabs the attention of the media world. While Dunne has nothing to do with him, other athletes have different viewpoints on Tate and admire his actions, especially when it comes to MMA fighters.
Reigning bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling has shared a photo with himself and Andrew Tate and Tate’s brother Tristan with the caption “Top G’s never die! Good chopping it up with you fellas.” For that, he had to face negative vibes on social media. He justified his point and shared his opinion on the same.
He wrote in a tweet “I think people are really crazy and I think that’s the problem with the world today. We are so quick to condemn people instead of actually giving people a chance to reason and analyze what people are saying versus assuming and just making a judgment and being completely wrong. That’s just the world that we live in today. I don’t think it’s going to change anytime soon. With that said, hopefully, T.J. Dillashaw moves the needle this weekend at UFC 280.”
Apart from Sterling, UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards and bantamweight contender Sean O’Malley also shared photos of themselves with the Tate brothers.
