UFC fighter Natan Levy is hoping bullies everywhere take serious note of his recent beatdown of an internet troll … saying on Tuesday he wants anyone who’s even thinking of spewing hate speech going forward to know “words have consequences.”
Levy absolutely mauled a smack-talking social media user named Ben recently … after the guy had defended noted antisemite Nick Fuentes in an exchange on X.
Levy, who’s Jewish, met the dude at his gym and pounded on him for several minutes — forcing the guy to tap out.
Eventually, he got Ben to say on camera following the sparring sesh that six million people were murdered in the Holocaust — an atrocity Ben didn’t previously acknowledge.
When Levy joined Harvey and Charles on Tuesday’s “TMZ Live” to talk about it all … he said he was pleased with how it turned out with Ben — and now, he wants others to keep the incident in mind before they hit their keyboards with similar nonsense.
“The big lesson I wanted to teach this guy — and hopefully everybody who is watching — is words have consequences,” he said. “Actions have consequences.”
“If you say something, you better stand behind it,” he added, “’cause this hate turns into hate in the real world. So we need to cut it off.”
Levy will have to take a brief moment from policing bullies on social media — he’s got a big UFC fight coming up against Alex Reyes on Sept. 16 — but when that concludes, sleep with one eye open, trolls.
