Go Listen To ‘The Receding Hairlines Podcast’

So, I’m going to keep this super short today, son. All folks need to know is, my dude Fabo has a podcast, man. That’s right, fam, alongside Sarge and Hutch, they collectively host The Receding Hairlines Podcast. Side note, I’ve been making fun of Fabo’s hairline for damn near 20 years. With that being said, I get a MAJOR kick out of the name of this podcast, bruh. Another side note, as a bald dude, I’m a huge hypocrite for making fun of anyone’s hairline. In any case, the podcast has a lot of sports debate, with a variety of real-life shenanigans thrown in for good measure. All in all, everybody needs to do the right thing and ride the wave. Anyway, the podcast can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or anywhere else people listen to podcasts. Now, what else is there to say, brethren? Go listen to the cotdamn podcast! That is all.

What The F*ck Is Floyd Mayweather Doing?

So, this dude Floyd Mayweather just can’t seem to stay retired, huh? I mean, every time he says he’s done fighting, he finds some new way to gank folks of their money, son. In any case, since he doesn’t want to fight actual boxers anymore, he’s going for anything that will drum up attention. First, it was his bout against Conor McGregor, who had no professional boxing matches on his record. Now, he’s planning to fight Tenshin Nasukawa, an undefeated kickboxer/MMA fighter from Japan.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mayweather just held a press conference in Tokyo. Now, apparently, on December 31st, he’s fighting Nasukawa at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Furthermore, this match will be promoted by the Rizin Fighting Federation. With all of that being said, there are still a lot of details that we don’t know. First, we don’t know what the rule set of the fight will be. I mean, we all know Mayweather is a boxer, so is he really trying to engage in leg kicks and takedowns with Nasukawa? Shit, that could be disastrous for Mayweather, man. Look, as a man who’s been kicked in his legs and choked before, I wouldn’t recommend it to a novice, fam. Side note, both instances happened in a gym, bruh. I don’t need anyone out there thinking that I’m getting helmed up in these streets. I’m just saying.

In the end, we’ll see, son. Ultimately, Mayweather doesn’t move unless the bag is involved. So, I’m assuming that he’s about to get stupidly paid, man. By and by, if it’s a boxing match, then I probably won’t tune in. However, if it’s a kickboxing or MMA bout, then Mayweather might have my attention, fam. At the end of the day, he might be testing the waters of other combat sports. Hell, he needs to before he even thinks about stepping in a cage with Khabib Nurmagomedov or McGregor. Either way, he’d still get mauled, bruh. That is all. LC out.

My 500th Post

So, I won’t lie, son. I don’t really have anything weighing on my mind today, man. Well, that’s not true at all. I mean, I have a million things on my mind, but nothing that I feel the need to write about, fam. Instead, I just want to take this time to thank any and everybody who supports this raggedy ass blog, bruh. Shit, as of today, I’ve reached 500 posts, brethren. Real talk, that’s a lot of fucking writing, folks. All I can say is, I wouldn’t have kept this up if people didn’t hold me down. Hell, every time I’ve wanted to quit, someone would randomly give me a word that I needed to hear. With that being said, I just want to acknowledge the fact that I don’t take any of it for granted. In the end, I’m going to do my best to make sure my shit ain’t trash, people. Love y’all! That is all. LC out.

Long Live Derrick Rose!

So, I’m going to be real, son. I may or may not have had an emotional reaction to Derrick Rose‘s performance last night. I mean, after everything that dude has been through, how could anyone not appreciate his game, man? Shit, after all of the injuries and all of the setbacks, Rose had a career night, fam. All in all, everybody needs to give him a standing ovation for never quitting and never falling victim to his past.

Ok, at this point, sports fans should be familiar with Rose’s story. Hell, he went from the Rookie of the Year and the youngest Most Valuable Player to the oft-injured/former franchise guy. Frankly, after a torn ACL and three meniscus injuries, nobody, including me, gave him much of a chance, bruh. Regardless of that, Rose kept working, son. Despite being traded a bunch of times and looking like a shell of himself, Rose kept the faith, man. With all of that being said, as part of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the stars finally started to align for him, fam.

Now, for anybody who missed it, Rose went OFF last night. While playing against the Utah Jazz, Rose scored a career-high 50 points while shooting 19/31 from the field and 4/7 from three-point range. On top of that, he made a game-saving block to stop the Jazz from tying the contest in the final moments. Like, could Hollywood even write a better story, bruh? Fuck no! Hell, Rose remained humble though all of his issues and just kept it pushing, man. All I know is, he deserves all of the praise he’s getting right now.

In the end, I hope this is the beginning of a new chapter for Rose, fam. Ultimately, I don’t expect him to drop 50 every night. But, I hope he can be consistent and reclaim even a fraction of his former glory, bruh. By and by, who doesn’t love a good redemption tale, son? On the real, I know I do, man. At the end of the day, long live Derrick Rose! That is all. LC out.

Stop Hating, Floyd Mayweather

Man, I swear that attention actually matters more to Floyd Mayweather than money. I mean, anytime the spotlight is on someone else, he finds a way to weasel himself into the situation. On the real, for someone who’s had so much success, I really don’t understand why he always feels the need to be so damn petty. Like, regardless of how people may personally view him, he’s without question one of the greatest boxers ever. So, why won’t homie just shut the fuck up and ride off into the sunset?

Ok, for those who missed it, Mayweather has been doing a lot of fuckity-fuck shit lately. Well, let me be more specific, son. Real talk, he’s had an entire life of fuckity-fuck moments. Anyway, over the last view months, he’s been blatantly trying to steal Canelo Álvarez‘ shine. First, there was Mayweather’s out-of-the-blue announcement that he’s planning on fighting Manny Pacquiao again. Now, this random assertion came on the same day as the rematch between Canelo and Gennady Golovkin. Basically, Mayweather couldn’t let such a huge fight go down without throwing his name in the ring (pun intended).

Now, Mayweather wants to shit on Canelo’s new deal with DAZN. As previously reported, Canelo just signed a 5-year, 11-fight deal with the streaming service for $365 million. Essentially, he just signed the richest contract in sports history. In any case, instead of being happy for Canelo or simply minding his business, Mayweather took to Instagram to hate. He brought up the fact that he previously beat Canelo (while claiming that he’s a worse fighter than Conor McGregor) and bragged about his pay-per-view payouts. Listen, we all know that Mayweather made a lot of money and bested Canelo before. But, who the fuck was talking about that, man? Then, to make matters worse, he posted a picture of Oscar De La Hoya (former opponent/Canelo promoter) dressed in drag. For what? For God‘s sake, no one was even talking about Mayweather, fam!

In the end, Mayweather should just take his money and go home, bruh. Ultimately, no one wants to see him act like a hoe ass hoe anymore. In addition, no one wants to see him box Khabib Nurmagomedov. By and by, he’s had his time in the sun, man. At the end of the day, he’s just out here looking like a clown, son. Then again, this isn’t the first time he’s been out here looking like a clown, fam. Frankly, he may be better at that than boxing, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Daniel Cormier Is Ducking The Smoke

Man, didn’t I just try to give Daniel Cormier his props? Didn’t I just tell people that we needed to respect what he’s accomplished? With that being said, why is he now out here ducking the smoke, son? Look, I’m a Derrick Lewis fan, but even HE said that he doesn’t deserve a title shot, fam. So, why would the UFC make this fight when Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic are lurking out there? Frankly, it looks like Cormier doesn’t want to risk losing his Heavyweight belt to a real challenge, bruh. All in all, he’s looking real funny in the light right now, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Cormier is now scheduled to fight Lewis during UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden. For me, this is a little wild since Lewis literally JUST fought Alexander Volkov at UFC 229. Furthermore, this is even weirder because Lewis almost lost that fight. On the real, Volkov was beating his ass the entire match, son. Shit, if Lewis didn’t land that right hand in the third round, it would’ve been an easy victory for Volkov. So, is THAT the performance that earned Lewis’ shot at the belt? Hell nah, man! Look, even Lewis knew he wasn’t ready after that fight. Like, he specifically spoke about his lack of cardio, fam. Real talk, I don’t understand this move at all, bruh.

To me, there’s only one explanation for this, son: Cormier doesn’t want to fight anyone who could legitimately take the belt from him. Listen, after being cleared to fight again, there was speculation that Jones might enter the cage against Cormier for a third time. Instead, he’s about to fight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 for the Light Heavyweight title that Cormier is not defending. Side note, in my eyes, the belt was never Cormier’s anyway. I mean, he never beat Jones, brethren. It’s that simple. In any case, ex-champ Miocic has already campaigned for a rematch against Cormier. Even worse, he previously said he’d be ready for UFC 230, the same event where Cormier is fighting Lewis. Nah, son, Cormier and Dana White are looking real suspect out here, man.

In the end, Cormier has some explaining to do, fam. Ultimately, no one wants to see him fight Derrick Lewis. No one wants to see him fight Brock Lesnar. By and by, no one even really wants to see him fight Miocic again. At the end of the day, if he isn’t going to man up and fight Jones again, then a lot of us fight fans will continue to hold those two L’s over his head. All I can say is, based on the shit he’s doing right now, he might deserve the hate, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Stop The Hypocrisy, Conor McGregor Fans

Look, let me be clear from the beginning, son: Khabib Nurmagomedov was dead wrong for jumping in the crowd after beating Conor McGregor. However, I need ALL McGregor fans to shut the fuck up, man. I mean, the hypocrisy is fucking astounding, fam! Listen, by no means is McGregor a fucking saint, bruh. Frankly, he started shit with the wrong dude and finally had to face the consequences of his actions. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about how Nurmagomedov needs to be stripped.

Ok, for those who don’t love sports, UFC 229 went down on Saturday night. Now, all around, it was a night of great fights, son. Shit, Derrick Lewis knocked out Alexander Volkov after losing most of the fight, Tony Ferguson beat Anthony Pettis after a fucking WAR and a bunch of other awesome shit. In any case, the showdown between Nurmagomedov and McGregor was poised to be the highlight of the show. Moving on, the fight went exactly the way I thought it would, man: Nurmagomedov mauled McGregor. Hell, after hitting McGregor with copious amounts of ground and pound, Nurmagomedov choked him out in the fourth round.

Now, this is where shit went left, fam. After the fight, Nurmagomedov got into a war of words with Dillon Danis, McGregor’s partner in crime, and literally jumped over the cage to rumble with him. Needless to say, chaos ensued and Nurmagomedov was escorted out of the main area without his Lightweight Championship Belt. All I can say is, it was an ugly scene and Nurmagomedov should’ve done a better job of controlling himself. For God‘s sake, he already proved his point, bruh! Like, he already beat McGregor in convincing fashion. On the real, there was no need for this shit, son.

With all of that being said, I’m sick of people acting like McGregor is innocent in all of this. Keeping it a buck, HE STARTED THIS ENTIRE DEBACLE, MAN! Where was all of this “oh, this is so disgusting” talk when he threw a fucking dolly at a bus carrying Nurmagomedov? From that incident alone, he injured Ray Borg, shook Rose Namajunas to her core and fucked up Michael Chiesa‘s fight. Ok, yes, he did end up in a New York City court, but McGregor was never in jeopardy with the UFC, fam. Fuck, they literally used the dolly incident in their fucking promos for UFC 229!

On top of that, McGregor talked about Nurmagomedov’s religion, his country, his father AND his manager’s son. Real talk, I don’t want to hear none of that “it’s just business” talk, bruh. Yeah, insulting a man is one thing, but disrespecting everything he loves is something completely different, son. All I know is, I would’ve been livid too, man. The fact of the matter is, McGregor tried his usual antics with the wrong dude and ended up on the bad side of an ass whooping.

In the end, Dana White and the UFC better not strip Nurmagomedov of the belt, fam. Ultimately, I know they’re looking for an reason to give Conor back the title, bruh. By and by, McGregor has done too much fuck shit with no consequences, son. At the end of the day, Nurmagomedov should be fined but allowed to keep his title. He beat McGregor fair and square, man. However, knowing White and his usual treachery, he’s going to strip Nurmagomedov and make McGregor and Ferguson fight for the vacant title. Look, if that happens, everyone heard it here first, fam. But, I really hope that doesn’t happen, bruh. Long live The Eagle! LC out.

P.S. I’m also tired of people complaining that Nurmagomedov wrestles too much. Listen, I’ve seen too many “he needs to stop hugging him and fight him like a man” comments. Fam, don’t be mad because Nurmagomedov’s way of fighting is effective. The truth is, McGregor had no answer and was forced to tap. In addition, Nurmagomedov landed the hardest punch of the entire fight. Maybe, just maybe, McGregor needs to learn how to grapple better. He’s been submitted four times now. That is all.
