Put Some Respeck On Stipe Miocic’s Name

So, here we are, son. It’s August 19th and Stipe Miocic is once again the UFC Heavyweight Champion. Now, in my eyes, Miocic has always been underappreciated, man. I mean, when fans discuss the greatest Heavyweights of all time, Miocic’s name is begrudgingly brought up. Like, people acknowledge the fact that he has the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history. But, they never put him in the same conversation as Cain Velasquez or Daniel Cormier. Well, now it’s undeniable, fam. Stipe Miocic is the greatest Heavyweight in UFC history.

Ok, before I continue, let’s talk about his recent fight with Cormier. Now, if I’m being real, Miocic was losing that fight at UFC 241, bruh. Shit, I legitimately believe that he lost the first three rounds against Cormier. On the real, I didn’t think the fight would make it out of the first round. Look, based on how often Cormier was connecting with his face, and the way Cormier rag-dolled him with the wrestling, I thought it was about to be a wrap, son. But, Miocic weathered the storm and waited for his opportunity, man.

Moving on, the whole fight started to change in the fourth round. By then, Miocic saw a chink in Cormier’s armor. He realized that Cormier was susceptible to body shots and kept hitting him with left hooks to the gut. Hell, after about 12 of those blows, Cormier’s hands started to fall, fam. From there, Miocic just punched the shit out of his dome, bruh. All in all, Cormier went down from the repeated strikes.

Now, despite Cormier’s loss, I’m not going to call his first fight against Miocic a fluke, son. Frankly, Miocic had a bad game plan by clinching with him. The way I see it, he played right into Cormier’s strengths and paid the price for it. On top of that, the second fight didn’t start too well for Miocic either. From the outside, it looked like Cormier was quicker on the attack, man. Like, he was pretty much able to hit Miocic at will. However, Cormier wasn’t able to put him out and Miocic just bided his time, fam. To me, Miocic showed the heart of a champion, bruh. The fact is, he made the perfected adjustment and made Cormier pay for his hubris, excuse me, mistakes. Side note, Cormier could’ve won if he just kept wrestling, brethren. Listen, he basically admitted as much.

In the end, put some respeck on Miocic’s name, son. Ultimately, he’s now accomplished more than any other UFC Heavyweight before him. By and by, folks were ready to crown Cormier as the greatest Heavyweight ever. Well, how should we rank Miocic now that he’s beat Cormier, reclaimed the belt and set the record for most wins in Heavyweight title fights? As the Heavyweight G.O.A.T., man. No more, no less, fam. That is all. LC out.

Give Daniel Cormier Some Respect!

Man, why do people hate Daniel Cormier so much? I mean, despite being a seemingly positive dude, he constantly gets shitted on by fans, son. Ok, look, I’m as big a Jon Jones apologist as anyone, but that doesn’t take away from what Cormier has accomplished, fam. Listen, from his Strikeforce days to his run in the UFC, Cormier has damn near done it all, bruh. All in all, after beating Stipe Miocic for the Heavyweight title, it’s time to put some respeck on Cormier’s name, folks. Word to Birdman.

Now, before I continue, let’s get the obvious out of the way, son. Ok, yes, Cormier lost to Jones twice. With that being said, I understand why some people have a hard time accepting Cormier as the Light Heavyweight champion. But, if Jones wasn’t such a fucktard, he wouldn’t have lost his title in the first place, man. Shit, after his first fight with Cormier, he lost the belt for hitting a pregnant woman with his car. Next, after his second fight with Cormier, he lost the belt for testing dirty for turinabol. On the real, no one should feel sorry for Jones, fam. Frankly, he squandered his career because of his continuous lack of judgement, bruh.

Anyway, when it comes to Cormier, he’s achieved damn near everything in MMA, son. Hell, before making his mark in the UFC, he was the Strikeforce Heavyweight champ. From there, he went down to Light Heavyweight so he didn’t get in the way of his teammate, Cain Velasquez. Real talk, outside of his questionable losses to Jones, Cormier is undefeated, man. Side note, I now call Jones’s victories “questionable” because he’s pissed hot twice, fam. Keeping it a buck, Jones hasn’t had a good run since USADA took over the drug testing, bruh. All I can say is, it makes me wonder about all of his other wins now. *Sigh* That’s just so damn disappointing, folks.

In the end, we all need to give Cormier his just due, son. Ultimately, we can put an asterisk next to his Light Heavyweight crown, but we can’t do the same with his Heavyweight title, man. By and by, he knocked the FUCK outta Miocic, fam! At the end of the day, Miocic is a legend in his own right, bruh. He holds the record for the most consecutive Heavyweight title defenses and Cormier put him down. All I know is, that’s the mark of a man who deserves his respect, people. That is all. LC out.

My Apologies To Stipe Miocic

So, this past weekend was a wild one for combat sports, son. I mean, there was so much violence on Saturday night, I didn’t know where to place my focus, man. Between the UFC, Bellator MMA and Errol Spence Jr. vs. Lamont Peterson, I got my fix of chaos and mayhem, fam. With that being said, I owe a particular fighter an apology, bruh. All jokes aside, I’m sorry, Stipe Miocic. Listen, I failed to give the reigning UFC Heavyweight champion a chance against Francis Ngannou. Needless to say, I was sorely mistaken. All in all, Miocic beat the breaks off of Ngannou, folks. I guess the Ngannou hype was too much and too soon.

Ok, to be fair, I was fully aware of how great Miocic was/is. Shit, he was already the champion and had to beat some serious competition to get there. Whether we’re talking about Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem or Fabrício Werdum, Miocic has defeated a number of legends on his way to the top. Now, despite all of that, I’ve watched Ngannou hit people, son. Listen, it often looks like murder when Ngannou’s fists connect with people’s faces. Hell, just look at what he did to Overeem, man. Real talk, I was positive Alistair was dead for at least three seconds, fam. All I know is, I truly believed that if Ngannou hit Miocic, he’d go night-night, bruh.

Now, when it came to the actual fight, NONE of that happened, son. Ok, yes, Ngannou did hit Miocic with a couple of shots. Yes, Miocic’s eye and ear did get fucked up. However; Miocic executed a brilliant game plan, man. Basically, he relied on his cardio and his wrestling to outwork Ngannou. On the real, I was a bit surprised by how bad Ngannou was on the ground. Look, he had no way to defend the takedown and he was just getting pummeled, fam. On top of that, he was gassed out by the end of the first round. By and by, he needs MAJOR work in certain aspects of his game, bruh.

In the end, Miocic proved a lot of people wrong, son. Listen, it’s no secret that Dana White and company put the marketing machine behind Ngannou. In any case, instead of caving under the pressure, Miocic found a way to win and broke the record for the most Heavyweight title defenses. Ultimately, he believes he’s the best Heavyweight of all time and he might be right, man. At the end of the day, Cain Velasquez might be the only fighter left who could say otherwise. That is all. LC out.
