Conor McGregor Finessed Dana White

Well, well, well, what do we have here, son? Two MMA posts in two days? That’s a record for me, man. Anyway, today’s post isn’t really about the fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. I mean, who the fuck knows what’s going to happen, fam? On the real, the end result will come down to either Khabib’s wrestling or McGregor’s left hand. In any case, I’m really here to talk about McGregor’s business acumen, bruh. All in all, he straight finessed Dana White, folks.

So, for those who missed it, McGregor and Khabib just had their first face-to-face meeting. In general, the press conference for their upcoming fight was a complete shit-show, son. Frankly, it was exactly what I thought it would be, man: McGregor going ballistic and Khabib calmly looking like a serial killer. Moving on, more news came out right after the press conference: namely, McGregor’s new deal with the UFC. All I can say is, McGregor found a way to make White pay him, fam.

Look, it’s no secret that McGregor made an ass-load of money from boxing Floyd Mayweather. Keeping it a buck, no MMA paycheck would even come close to a nine-figure payout, bruh. Shit, Georges St-Pierre is one of the GOAT‘s and I’m pretty sure he made a little over $2 million in his last fight. Now, that’s a pretty number to a dude like me, but that ain’t shit compared to what McGregor raked in from boxing. In any case, the UFC had to give McGregor a real reason to step back into the Octagon, son. So, how did they do it? By bending over and touching their toes for McGregor.

Apparently, The Notorious just signed a six-fight deal with the UFC. As part of the deal, he gets points on the pay-per-view buys, and his whiskey, Proper Whiskey, will serve as a sponsor for all of his fights. Basically, he’s getting paid three different ways every time he steps into that cage, man. All I know is, THAT’S how fighters should do business with Dana White, fam. Listen, I know everybody doesn’t have McGregor’s celebrity, but White has been ganking fighters for years, bruh. Keeping it a buck, it’s about damn time that someone got one up on him, son.

In the end, congrats to McGregor, man. Ultimately, he may be a crazy person, but he knows his worth, fam. By and by, his fight with Khabib is going to be straight insanity, bruh. At the end of the day, McGregor’s left hand is his only hope, people. The way I see it, if he can’t stop Khabib’s takedowns, then the match is going to be absolute abuse, folks. Regardless, I can’t wait to see it, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Jon Jones Is Back!

So, it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of MMA and a huge fan of Jon Jones. Look, that dude may be a train wreck outside of the cage, but inside that bitch, he’s flawless, son. With that being said, I’m hyped that he’s eligible to compete again, man. Frankly, the UFC is a little more boring when the G.O.A.T. isn’t fighting, fam. All in all, let the haters hate and let Jones be great, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Jones was in USADA limbo for the past year. Since testing positive for a banned substance after his second win over Daniel Cormier, everyone wondered what Jones’ future was going to be. On the real, shit didn’t look good, son. I mean, this wasn’t his first time pissing hot, so he could’ve faced a long ass suspension, man. However, despite reports of a potential four-year ban, Jones escaped with only 15 months. Apparently, according to USADA, Jones didn’t intentionally cheat and took a tainted supplement.

Now, let me keep it a buck, fam. Look, at this point, I can completely understand the skeptics. Real talk, I completely understand the folks who think there’s something fishy in the water, bruh. Like, it’s no secret that Jones is one of the UFC’s biggest stars, son. It’s also no secret that he has a long history of doing fuck shit, man. So, it does seem odd that a dude with his background is getting off so easy. My thing is, I don’t give a fuck, folks! I just wanna see this guy fight, people!

Listen, people can complain all they want, but MMA is a business, son. In order for these organizations to run effectively, they need to keep booking big fights, man. To that end, the UFC needs Jones, fam. In addition, a lot of the naysayers are hypocrites, bruh. Look, Cormier can’t say shit about Jones when he’s planning to fight Brock Lesnar. For God‘s sake, is someone going to try and tell me that Lesnar is clean? Geeeeeet the fuck outta here, y’all! Dudes like Cormier are just pissed because they know they can’t beat Jones. Simple and plain.

In the end, welcome back, Jones! All I can say is, don’t fuck this up, son! Nah, seriously, don’t fuck this up, man! Ultimately, if he gets knocked for some dumb shit again, I’m off of the bandwagon, fam. By and by, who’s going to be first on the comeback list, bruh? Cormier or Alexander Gustafsson? Either way, I can’t wait, bruh! That is all. LC out.

My Yearly Prince Post

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Look, everyone who knows me knows that I’m a MASSIVE Prince fan, man. Sadly, it’s already been two years since he passed away. Despite this, his music is eternal and as long as people like me are around, the fandom will continue, fam. In any case, instead of mourning his death, I want to keep on celebrating his music, bruh. With that being said, I’d like to highlight some of my favorite, and more recent, Prince records.

Ok, I won’t lie, son. I’m about to be on some real snob shit, man. Keeping it a buck, I’d rather give light to some of his lesser known jams than the songs that people are most familiar with. So, below is a quick list of some of my favorite new age bangers:

In the end, that’s all I’ve got for today, fam. Ultimately, all I can say is, viva la Prince Rogers Nelson, bruh! By and by, I don’t give a fuck what anyone says, son. That dude is the fucking G.O.A.T., man, end of discussion! Anyway, folks out there need to get some of this fuego, people. That is all. LC out.

Who’s The G.O.A.T.? Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James

So, let me begin this post by saying that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. However; the LeBron James slander needs to stop, son. Look, whether people want to admit it or not, LeBron deserves to be in the G.O.A.T. conversation now. I mean, the numbers don’t lie and the ball don’t lie either, man. Frankly, the NBA has never seen a player like LeBron, and it’s about time we give him his damn respect.

Now, before I continue, let me keep it a buck with everyone. To be real, I wasn’t always a LeBron fan. In fact, during his last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers (the first time) and his first season with the Miami Heat, I thought he was a sucker, son. Look, the man quit against the Boston Celtics in the 2010 Semifinals and played like pure ass against the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011 Finals. Needless to say, at that particular time, I questioned his heart.

With that all of that being said, this dude has completely dominated the league since his arrival. All jokes aside, LeBron’s ability should NEVER be questioned, bruh. Listen, MJ may be the NBA version of the Bogeyman, but LeBron is actually better than him in a few notable areas. All in all, LeBron is a better passer, a better rebounder and a more efficient scorer than MJ. Don’t believe me? Just look at the statistics, son. It just is what it is, man.

Moving on, LeBron is also a better defender than Jordan. Yes, I said it. Big whoop, wanna fight about it? Look, if we’re being real here, Scottie Pippen was the best defender on those old Chicago Bulls teams. He was the one who always had the toughest defensive assignment. Don’t believe me again? Well, go back and watch the 1991 Finals. Who was the one guarding Magic Johnson most of the time? That’s right, Pippen, son. Now, don’t get me wrong, MJ was a genius at playing the passing lanes. However; LeBron can legitimately guard every position on the court. Give that man his just due, fam.

Ok, with all of that being said, people really slander LeBron when it comes to rings. I mean, I can’t count how many times I’ve seen fools say “he only has three rings.” Only? Only?! Man, how many legends are in the Hall of Fame with NO rings or ONE championship? Shit, even when people compare LeBron to Kobe Bryant, they bring up the fact that Kobe has two more rings than LeBron. Well, LeBron has more Finals MVP‘s than Kobe because Kobe won his first three titles with a li’l ol’ player named Shaquille O’Neal. Kobe wasn’t even the best player on his own team during those years, bruh. Stop it, fam.

When it comes to Jordan, people like to pretend like all he ever did was win. Why does no one ever bring up the fact that he lost to the Detroit Pistons three years in a row? Three years in a row, man! In actuality, MJ only beat that team once, fam. Granted, he did it on the way to his first title, but he was never infallible in the playoffs. As a matter of fact, before his title runs, critics weren’t even sure if he had what it took to win it all. So, why do we criticize LeBron for making all of these Finals, but let MJ slide for repeatedly losing to the same team? That makes absolutely no sense, son.

In the end, I’m not trying to take away from Jordan’s greatness. I still believe he’s the greatest. However; when people put LeBron’s name in that conversation, it really isn’t as crazy as some would like us to believe. Ultimately, if LeBron can somehow magically beat the Golden State Warriors again, it might be time for everyone to rearrange their G.O.A.T. list. That is all. LC out.
