Rather's kind words might have been prompted by the fact that he hosts a show on ASX TV, the cable home of Inside MMA. But not necessarily. He mentioned that he once was a Golden Glove boxer. And even during his tumultuous broadcast career, he's a man who's been unafraid of a tussle. Hmm. The UFC is headed to Rather's home state of Texas in March. Get this man a cageside ticket.
