Now We’ll Never Get Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, this is a somber moment for me, man. I mean, while I’m a big Justin Gaethje fan, I’m pissed off for Tony Ferguson, fam. Like, how long have we waited for Ferguson to go up against Khabib Nurmagomedov? Shit, Dana White has tried to book that fight five times and five times that shit fell through. All in all, after UFC 249 and the beatdown provided by Gaethje, we’ll probably never see Ferguson take on Khabib.

Ok, for those who don’t understand my sorrow, let’s quickly breakdown the history of Ferguson and Khabib. Now, as I’ve previously stated, this fight has been scheduled five times. Four of those bouts were cancelled due to injury/illness. The last scrap was deaded because of the coronavirus. So, since Khabib has been “quarantining” in Russia, the UFC commissioned a fight between Ferguson and Gaethje for the Interim Lightweight Championship (a title that Ferguson already won before).

Now, to be honest, I was always worried about this matchup. Real talk, after those two losses to Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier, Gaethje has been a different fighter, bruh. Hell, he still has bricks for hands, but he’s a lot more patient and way more calculated. Meaning, he’s picking his spots and THEN separating his opponents from their consciousness. So, I knew that he would be trouble for someone as reckless as Ferguson. The fact of the matter is, Tony walked into damn near EVERY punch that Gaethje threw, son.

Keeping it a buck, I have no idea how Ferguson lasted until the fifth round, man. The way I see it, any other mortal would’ve died in the first round against Gaethje. But, that toughness also comes with a price, fam. Frankly, Ferguson looked like a fucking car crash after that fight, bruh. All I can say is, Gaethje fought a perfect fight. Because of this, we’ll probably never get to see the chaos of a Ferguson and Khabib fight. *Sigh* Thanks, Justin Gaethje. Thanks a fucking lot.

In the end, I can only see one pathway to a Ferguson and Khabib match. Ultimately, as much as I hate to say it, Ferguson needs to go see Conor McGregor. By and by, if Ferguson can beat McGregor and Khabib survives against Gaethje, then the longstanding opponents might finally have their day in the sun. At the end of the day, Ferguson was a madman for accepting that fight against Gaethje. However, that’s also what made him a champion. Anyway, such is life, son. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I don’t believe Henry Cejudo when he says that he’s retiring. He, and his shenanigans, will be back (unfortunately). Good day.

Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje Will Be Chaos

So, here we are, son. Another day and another failed attempt to book Tony Ferguson versus Khabib Nurmagomedov. I mean, maybe I’m a fool, but I really thought it was going to happen this time, man. Like, for ONCE, both athletes are healthy and didn’t have to pull out for personal reasons. But, the coronavirus happened, and now Khabib is “trapped” in Russia. Meaning, for the fifth time, the bout between him and Ferguson has been cancelled. With all of that being said, we need to thank the Lord for Justin Gaethje, fam. On a few weeks notice, he’s decided to take on Ferguson for the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship.

Ok, for those who are unaware, despite the world being at home, Dana White and company are moving forward with UFC 249. Now, at this point, I have no idea where this card is taking place. Shit, there are reports that White got an entire island just to have this event. In any case, I can tell that he’s trying to overload our senses to make up for all of the cancelled events. As of right now, UFC 249 is going to host Ferguson, Gaethje, Francis Ngannou, Rose Namajunas and Greg Hardy‘s bum ass. But, it’s clear that Ferguson is the focal point of this show. Hell, it’s fucked up, but he’s out here trying to win ANOTHER interim title.

All I know is, as much as I like Gaethje as a fighter, I really hope that he doesn’t win. Bruh, I can’t live in a world where Ferguson and Khabib don’t fight, son. Frankly, they’re the two most dominant Lightweights in UFC history and they NEED to scrap, man. The truth is, I’m pissed off at Khabib for dropping out, fam. Real talk, he’s buddies with Vladimir Putin, brethren. The way I see it, he could convince Putin to take a private jet to rumble with Ferguson. In my eyes, if he’s really the best, then he needs to prove it against Ferguson.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, I’ll be here for UFC 249. By and by, I just need Ferguson to prevail, man. So, I need the MMA gods to get this one right, fam. At the end of the day, Ferguson MUST fight Khabib. It’s a fucking must, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Conor McGregor Doesn’t Deserve A Title Shot

So, let’s just skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. On the real, enough is enough, man. Ok, yes, I completely understand that Conor McGregor is the biggest draw in MMA history. However, at some point, the nepotism has to fucking stop, fam. The fact of the matter is, McGregor does NOT deserve another title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov. At least, not right now, bruh. With that being said, can Dana White and the UFC stop trying to force this fucking fight down our throats?

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, McGregor is scheduled to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday. Anyway, this is a big fight for a couple of reasons, son. First, it marks the return of the most-bankable star in MMA. Second, it features Cerrone, a dude who holds a shit-ton of UFC records. This includes most wins, most finishes, most bonuses, most head-kick knockouts, etc. Third, despite being booked at Welterweight, the bout has MASSIVE implications on the Lightweight division. Now, this is where my beef stems from, man. The fact is, this match should have NO baring on whether or not McGregor fights Khabib for the belt again.

For one, no matter how McGregor tries to paint it, he got dominated by Khabib in their 2018 fight. Listen, in a bout that lasted nearly four rounds, McGregor only won one and ended up tapping out. In any case, that was McGregor’s last fight in the Octagon. Regardless, White is out here saying that a rematch with Khabib could be next if McGregor gets past Cerrone. In addition, White stated that McGregor will be on standby for the April 18 championship fight between Khabib and Tony Ferguson, in case either fighter backs out. *Sigh* What the flying fuck, fam? I mean, would Cerrone get a title shot if he beats McGregor? Probably not. So, why would McGregor, coming off of a loss, get another crack at the man who made him quit? This is fucking nonsense, bruh. Look, he hasn’t done ANYTHING in the interim to warrant a do-over.

Also, where does Justin Gaethje fit into this equation? Like, he’s ranked higher than McGregor AND he’s on a three-fight win streak. Correction, he’s on a three-fight knockout streak, INCLUDING Cerrone! So, beating Cerrone would get McGregor a fight with Khabib but not for Gaethje? Come the fuck on, son! For God‘s sake, White and the UFC don’t even TRY to hide their bias, man. All I know is, the company is playing with these fighters’ lives, fam. Real talk, people like Gaethje are actually out here putting in the work and a guy like McGregor, simply because of name-value, is stealing their shine. It’s GROSSLY unfair, bruh.

In the end, there’s only one way to derail this train, son. Ultimately, Cerrone has to pull off a miracle and beat McGregor, man. By and by, the bullshit has to stop, fam. At the end of the day, McGregor has done NOTHING to earn the position that the UFC is trying to put him in. Frankly, I don’t care about what he’s accomplished before. Keeping it a buck, the division has passed him by and other fighters have WORKED for their current spot. So, stop fucking over the ones who truly deserve it. Then again, money reigns supreme and everything I’ve just said probably won’t matter, bruh. *Sigh* Only McGregor nut-huggers want this shit to happen, brethren. Needless to say, I’m not one of them. That is all. LC out.
