Thursday April 3rd ... a day Dana White says he will remember FOREVER ... because it was the day he got a tweet from the GREATEST FIGHTER OF ALL TIME ... Muhammad Ali!! 

This video is GREAT -- White was leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills and couldn't hold back his excitement about the tweet he got from Ali: a pic of Ali fighting a Japanese wrestler back in 1976 along with the caption, "What you think @DanaWhite? Muhammad Ali - the original #MMA fighter?"

0404_muhamma_ali_tweet"It was the greatest day ever," White said ... "The greatest tweet I've ever received in my life."

White happened to be leaving the restaurant at the same time as a bunch of rich oil and gas guys from Texas -- and totally bros out with the gang ... calling 'em a bunch of "rich motherf**kers."

As he walks back into his car, White shouted out to the group -- "Be rich, prosper and have fun!"

Ya gotta watch the video.

Dana is a giant D-bag. He used to be cool, but I can't stand him now. He totally takes advantage of the fighters.
