UFC 245 Was NUTS!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I don’t even know where to start, man. The fact is, UFC 245 was fucking nuts, fam! Now, I know that the fight between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington was worth the price of admission. But, the rest of the card was also crazy, bruh. All in all, I was thoroughly entertained by Saturday night’s chaos (pun intended).

Ok, as folks can probably assume, I’m here to recap Saturday’s shenanigans. Anyway, let’s begin with the bout between Geoff Neal and Mike Perry. Now, to be frank, I’m a big Mike Perry fan, son. I mean, he doesn’t always win his matches, but he’s always fucking exciting, man. In addition, he’s normally durable as shit. Well, Neal put a stop to all of that shit, fam. All I can say is, he hit Perry with a head kick that ended the night quick, bruh. The fact is, Neal is going to be a problem at Welterweight, people.

Next, we had Petr Yan versus Urijah Faber. All I know is, that fight went exactly the way that I thought it would, son. Seriously, Faber had no business fucking with a dangerous dude like Yan, man. In any case, another head kick put another fighter down, fam. Shit was brutal, brethren. From there, José Aldo got robbed against Marlon Moraes. Look, Aldo kept chasing Moraes around because Moraes refused to engage, bruh. The way I see it, you can’t backpedal for an entire fight and earn a decision, folks.

After that, the G.O.A.T. Amanda Nunes took on Germaine de Randamie for the Bantamweight title. Now, if I’m being honest, I thought that Nunes would steamroll de Randamie, son. Ok, yes, it’s been six years since Nunes first beat her. But, based on Nunes’ last couple of years, I thought this would be light work, man. The truth is, the bout was a lot closer than the scorecards would suggest, fam. Like, I know that Nunes won four rounds, but it wasn’t easy, bruh. Shit, there were a few times where Nunes was in real danger, folks. From submission attempts to upkicks to well-placed right hands, de Randamie held her own against the champ. However, she couldn’t stop a takedown to save her life, people. Honestly, that’s the area where Nunes dominated.

Moving on, we got to see Max Holloway scrap with Alexander Volkanovski for the Featherweight strap. Keeping it a buck, I had no idea how this fight would go, son. Yes, Holloway has been a dominant champion, but Volkanovski is a motherfucker, man. With all of that being said, Volkanovski kept Holloway at bay with copious amounts of leg kicks. Real talk, Holloway couldn’t really put his offense together because his legs were getting brutalized, fam. To me, Holloway won Round 4 and maaaaybe Round 2. Other than that, Volkanovski did more than enough to dethrone the champ, bruh. From my vantage point, it was a brilliant strategy, folks.

Now, let’s get to the main event, son. *Wooooo* I’ve been waiting for this shit for a while, man. Truth be told, I didn’t have a clue on how Usman versus Covington would play out, fam. Like, they’re both dominating wrestlers with relentless pressure. Hell, I thought that the winner would be determined by who got tired first. In any case, I didn’t see this fight turning into a straight standup battle. For nearly five rounds, both men went back-and-forth with no wrestling, minimal kicks and a TON of punches to the face.

When it comes to their styles, it was basically power against volume. Usman had the power and Covington had the volume. When it was all said and done, the power won out, bruh. In Round 3, Usman broke Covington’s jaw. In Round 5, Usman knocked him down twice before finishing him. Despite a respectable effort, Covington couldn’t keep taking those hits to the face, son. Regardless, I was fucking happy to see Covington go down, man.

Look, before I continue, I want to address the MAGA crowd that loves Covington. Listen, I guess it’s only right that they subscribe to “fake news,” fam. Shit, on social media, I’m hearing cats cry about an “early stoppage” and that Covington would’ve won a decision. Now, factually speaking, going into Round 5, the three judges had it 3-1 Usman, 3-1 Covington and 2-2 even. On top of that, based on the two knockdowns alone, Usman was winning the fifth round. So, even without the knockout, Covington would’ve lost a split decision. Side bar, anybody who thought that Covington won three rounds is a fucking joke, bruh. That’s literally nonsense, son. Anyway, Usman saved everyone the trouble and put the clown on his ass.

In the end, I’m glad that I gave ESPN my $59.99. Ultimately, damn near all of the fights were entertaining as shit, man. By and by, we’ll probably get a Usman/Covington rematch down the line. For now, I’m just glad to see the dumbass squirm, fam. Viva la UFC! That is all. LC out.

P.S. There’s something truly disheartening to see Candace Owens, a whole Black woman, call Usman the “Nigerian cry baby” in Covington’s Instagram comments. *Sigh* I won’t even expound further, son. I’ll just leave that there. Good day.

P.P.S. I wonder if Donald Trump will return Covington’s calls now that he lost. Probably not, right? Ha!

The UFC Needs To Strip Conor McGregor

Look, let me get straight to the point, son. Listen, enough is enough already, man. I mean, is Conor McGregor a fighter or what, fam? At this point, it doesn’t even seem like McGregor WANTS to defend his UFC title, bruh. Now, if that’s the case, then the organization needs to strip him, folks. Ok, yes, I’m well aware of the fact that he’s the biggest draw in the sport. However; he can’t continue to disregard his championship obligations and still be considered a champion. In my eyes, if McGregor doesn’t fight again before the summer, then the UFC needs to take his Lightweight belt.

Ok, let’s keep it a buck for a second, son. Now, I know that McGregor is the UFC’s biggest attraction. I mean, he’s a knockout artist who has a 9-1 record under their banner and a 21-3 record overall. In addition, he even won the Featherweight title before becoming the Lightweight champion. Because of this, he became the first fighter to ever simultaneously serve as champion in two divisions. With all of that being said, he’s easily one of the sport’s most decorated combatants. My problem is, he’s literally NEVER defended any of his belts!

Listen, after he beat the legendary José Aldo for the Featherweight title, he immediately moved up to Welterweight to fight Nate Diaz. Now, after their two-war bonanza, McGregor fought and beat Eddie Alvarez for the Lightweight title. Keep in mind, this happened back in November of 2016. Fast forward to January of 2018 and McGregor still hasn’t returned to the cage, man. Ok, yes, he got a major payday after boxing with Floyd Mayweather, but even that fight took place in August of 2017. Shit, fam, what the fuck is this dude waiting for, bruh?

Now, I’ve heard all of the arguments about why McGregor hasn’t had another fight. Look, I know he made an assload of money with Mayweather, so that UFC bread probably doesn’t compare. In that case, he should vacate the fucking belt. Listen, if Dana White and company can’t pay him what he thinks he’s worth, then he needs to move on and let other fighters battle for the belt. Shit, as of right now, Tony Ferguson should be considered the champ, son. Yeah, I know he only has the interim belt, but the organization had to do that because McGregor won’t fucking fight! Good Lord, it’s fucking madness, man!

In the end, McGregor needs to defend or vacate, fam. Ultimately, he needs to behave like a champion or get the fuck outta dodge, bruh. Then again, even if he unifies the title against Ferguson, NOBODY wants to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. Shit, after what he just did to Edson Barboza, I wouldn’t fight that dude either, son. Look, I outweigh that guy by like 100 pounds and I STILL know better, man. That is all. LC out.
