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.

EVERYONE Underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr.

So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. On the real, EVERYONE underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr. Like, only the most knowledgeable of boxing insiders gave him a chance to beat Anthony Joshua, man. Shit, I consider myself a connoisseur and my guy Thomas had to be the one to school me on Ruiz’ fast hands, fam. In any case, Ruiz just shocked the world and sent the Heavyweight division into a fucking tailspin.

Ok, for those who missed it, shit got real on Saturday night. Now, Joshua, the boxing pride of England, was set to make his American debut at Madison Square Garden. Originally, his opponent was supposed to be Jarrell Miller. However, as I detailed in a previous post, Miller righteously fucked up the bag, bruh. Anyway, on basically one month’s notice, Ruiz signed on to fight Joshua. All in all, most casual fans thought Ruiz looked like Gabriel Iglesias and didn’t give him a chance, son.

Moving on, the fight turned out toooooootally different than damn near everyone imagined, man. Shit, after being knocked down in the third round, Ruiz began to put them paws on Joshua, fam. I mean, he dropped Joshua twice in the same third round and then twice more in the seventh round. After Joshua began looking confused in his corner, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight, bruh. All I know is, I didn’t expect Joshua to get clanked that many times, son.

Look, to be honest, I always wondered about Joshua’s chin, man. Hell, when he got dropped by an old ass Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, I knew he could be vulnerable, fam. Frankly, that’s why I wanted to see him fight Deontay Wilder. Real talk, I wanted to see if his jaw could withstand Wilder’s right hand. All I can say is, after the slaps he received from Ruiz, he better stay faaaar away from Wilder, bruh. Keeping it a buck, Wilder might put Joshua on permanent hiatus, son.

In the end, I don’t know what to make of the Heavyweight division, man. Ultimately, I’m sure Joshua has a rematch clause with Ruiz. Meaning, he’ll have an opportunity to get his belts back. However, this loss puts a damper on the three-way race between Joshua, Wilder and Tyson Fury. By and by, this is exactly why I hate boxing politics, fam. The way I see it, all of these dudes should’ve fought each other already, bruh. Now, there are more obstacles in the way. *Sigh* Nevertheless, HUGE congrats to Ruiz, son. At the end of the day, there was no luck involved, brethren. The truth is, he plainly whooped Joshua’s ass, people. That is all. LC out.

Thanks For Wasting Our Time, Brock Lesnar

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m happy that Brock Lesnar is retiring from MMA. Frankly, no real fan wanted to watch him fight Daniel Cormier, man. On the real, the fact that this fight was ever a possibility is a fucking joke, fam. I mean, he’s only had two fights in the last eight years and he popped for PEDs in 2016. All in all, the sport won’t miss him, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, the proposed match between Lesnar and Cormier is off. Apparently, Lesnar informed Dana White that he’s retiring, so the UFC now has to change gears. Now, after the months of fuckery, the UFC is trying to schedule a rematch between Cormier and Stipe Miocic. Side note, this is the fight that should’ve happened from the beginning. Fuck all that Hollywood shit, son. The best should be fighting the best. Period.

Now, I never understood why Cormier wanted to fight Lesnar in the first place, man. Ok, yes, I know Cormier was looking for a big payday. But, that bout would’ve contradicted everything he claimed to stand for. Shit, he’s extremely vocal about being a clean athlete and often criticizes Jon Jones for his transgressions. So, his answer was to fight Lesnar, a man who’s also failed drug tests? Come the fuck on, fam.

In the end, I just want Miocic to get his just due, bruh. Ultimately, he’s achieved more than any other Heavyweight in UFC history. By and by, it was fucked up to see him being dismissed so easily. At the end of the day, I think the rematch with Cormier will be crazy. All I know is, that’s what real MMA fans want, son. That is all. LC out.

You Had One Job, Jarrell Miller

So, by definition, “stupid” means showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense. On the real, that’s the best way to describe Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller right now. I mean, this dude has a shot at Anthony Joshua and three of the four major Heavyweight boxing titles and he fucks it up, son. Like, the LAST thing he should want to do is test positive for PEDs, man. Alas, he did and here we are, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Miller is supposed to face Joshua on June 1st for the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO Heavyweight titles. Now, out of all of the major titles, the WBC belt held by Deontay Wilder is the only one that Joshua doesn’t have. With that being said, this is the chance of a lifetime for Miller. Shit, if he won this fight, he’d be well on his way to becoming the undisputed Heavyweight champion. To keep this in perspective, Lennox Lewis is the last fighter to hold this distinction, people. Instead, Miller just popped hot for Cardarine, better known as GW1516.

Now, why in this notable? Because this drug is known to increase people’s aerobic threshold and endurance. The fact is, Miller is well over 300 pounds and tends to gas out in his fights. So, a drug like this would give him an incredible advantage, bruh. Frankly, if he were able to keep his power, but avoid getting tired, he would cause a lot of problems for Joshua. The way I see it, this is a super obvious example of cheating, son.

As it stands, I’m not sure if the fight is still on. Apparently, Joshua is going to fight on June 1st regardless, man. It remains to be seen if Miller will still be his opponent. From what I’m reading, Manuel Charr, the WBA (Regular) champion, might get the call to face Joshua. All I know is, I’d be highly disappointed if that were the case, fam. Like, it’s already bad enough that Joshua and Wilder haven’t fought each other yet. I could’ve at least talked myself into Miller, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I have NO interest in seeing Joshua fight Charr, son. *Sigh* These fighters just can’t get right, brethren.

In the end, FUCK, son! Ultimately, Miller might’ve messed up a dope fight for boxing fans. By and by, I don’t know why fighters still try to cheat, man. At the end of the day, they always end up getting caught, fam. Real talk, VADA needs to just look the other way and let Miller get knocked out by Joshua. That is all. LC out.

Tyson Fury Beat Deontay Wilder

So, let me begin this post by saying I hate boxing, son. Actually, I take that back, man. In reality, I just hate boxing judges, fam. Like, I legitimately believe they get A LOT of decisions wrong, bruh. Now, in the case of Deontay Wilder versus Tyson Fury, there’s one particular judge I need to address. With that being said, I honestly pray that Alejandro Rochin is never allowed to call another fight again, brethren.

Ok, for those who hate cool things, a huge boxing match took place on Saturday. To make a long story short, Wilder, the WBC Heavyweight Champion, defended his belt against Fury, the former WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and Lineal Heavyweight Champion. Anyway, on paper, the fight looked like the classic “boxer versus brawler” prototype. I mean, Fury is the (way) more technically sound fighter while Wilder has insane one-punch power. Moving on, in my mind, there were only two ways this fight could end, son: Wilder by knockout or Fury by decision.

Well, let me say that I was fucking wrong, man. The problem is, I should’ve been right, fam. Shit, the fight went to a decision, and somehow, it ended in a draw. Look, the way I saw it, Fury definitely won that fight, bruh. Ok, yes, Wilder did knock Fury down twice. Side note, how the FUCK did Fury get up in that 12th round, son? For God‘s sake, he looked fucking DEAD, people. All I know is, Tyson Fury is a cotdamn warrior, brethren. Anyway, besides those knockdowns, Wilder only connected on 17% of his punches, folks. Meaning, Fury CONSISTENTLY made him miss. From my vantage point, Fury easily won about 7 or 8 rounds. So, those knockdowns shouldn’t have been the nail in the coffin.

Now, let me be real, son. At first, I thought the decision was a flat-out robbery. However, after looking at the judges scorecards, I only vehemently disagree with Rochin. Listen, Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112, meaning he believed that Fury won 8 rounds. On the other hand, Phil Edwards scored the fight 113-113, meaning he believed that Fury won 7 rounds. Real talk, I can live with that, son. These scores mean that the knockdowns cost Fury a clear-cut victory. So, Wilder’s crazy power got him out of a jam, man.

However, for whatever reason, Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 for Wilder. This means that he thought Deontay won 7 rounds. Man, what? What?! What 7 rounds could he possibly have thought that Wilder won? Like, he believed that Wilder won the first 4 rounds. Fam, he didn’t lay a fucking glove on Fury! How can a man win a round if he literally couldn’t hit the other guy? Is Rochin fucking serious, bruh?! For me, that score was just as bad as Adalaide Byrd saying that Canelo Álvarez beat Gennady Golovkin 118-110 in their first fight. Hell, that’s absolute fucking nonsense, son!

In the end, Rochin needs to find a new occupation, man. Ultimately, he shitted on one of the greatest comeback stories, fam. By and by, Fury is a MUCH better fighter than Wilder. Then again, we already knew that, bruh. At the end of the day, Wilder’s power really is the great neutralizer, son. Keeping it a buck, two punches saved him his title, folks. That is all. LC out.

P.S. We all know why this fight ended like this, son. All in all, the powers that be want to see Wilder fight Anthony Joshua, man. Hell, that fight has been teased for years and it might finally go down in April, fam. *Sigh* I get it, but I feel bad for Fury, bruh. Seriously, he won that fucking fight, folks. Good day.

P.P.S. I want to wish Adonis Stevenson a speedy recovery, son. After getting knocked out by Oleksandr Gvozdyk in the 11th round on Saturday, the former WBC Light Heavyweight Champion ended up in the hospital. As of right now, he’s in stable condition. This is great to hear since he was originally in critical condition and in a medically-induced coma. Either way, it’s a terrible situation and I wish him and his family the best. Ok, I’m gone, for real.

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.

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.
