Andrew Tate has earned himself an almost cult-like following through social media, reaching the level of fame he couldn’t previously with kickboxing. Almost anybody who follows the Tate brothers, Andrew Tate and Tristan Tate, knows about their fighting career as well. With over 76 victories under his belt, Tate had a great career as a 4-time kickboxing world champion. But not a lot of people know about his career as an MMA fighter.
