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.

Conor McGregor Isn’t Retiring

So, I won’t lie, son. I haven’t blogged in a little while because I burned myself out, man. I mean, after all of the work that went into putting out an album, I felt drained, fam. Side note, everybody should go listen to my The Charlemagne Renaissance album right now. Like, right now, bruh! It’s on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and whatever streaming service the homies created in their basement. In any case, I’m back today to call Conor McGregor’s bluff. All in all, I don’t believe he’s retiring for one second, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, McGregor hit Twitter to announce his retirement from MMA. Apparently, thanks to all of that Floyd Mayweather and Proper No. 12 whiskey money, he doesn’t feel the need to fight again. Now, in theory, he’s right. Sh*t, during the course of his career, he’s sold countless PPV’s and has had countless highlights. For God’s sake, he’s responsible for 5 of the top 6 UFC PPV buys, son. Frankly, he couldn’t possibly become any bigger of a star, man. So, what’s left for him to do, fam?

With all of that being said, I’m still calling shenanigans, bruh. Listen, McGregor is a competitor, son. Ok, yes, he’s also a businessman, but he made it this far by being a warrior. The way I see it, he won’t call it a career until he fights both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz again. Look, based on pride alone, I don’t see him riding off into the sunset knowing that he couldn’t beat Khabib. I’d bet money that McGregor thinks he can take him in a rematch. I mean, he’s wrong, but I guarantee he’s going to try again, man. On top of that, the series with Diaz is tied 1-1. McGregor knows that this rivalry needs a definitive winner, fam.

In the end, all will be answered, bruh. Ultimately, McGregor may have some people fooled, but I’m not one of them, son. By and by, give him like 6 months, man. He’ll find a reason to get back into that Octagon, fam. At the end of the day, I’ll still be there to watch it. All I know is, he’d have much better luck against Diaz than Khabib. Keeping it a buck, McGregor can’t beat that monster from Dagestan, people. It just is what it is, brethren. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck Is Floyd Mayweather Doing?

So, this dude Floyd Mayweather just can’t seem to stay retired, huh? I mean, every time he says he’s done fighting, he finds some new way to gank folks of their money, son. In any case, since he doesn’t want to fight actual boxers anymore, he’s going for anything that will drum up attention. First, it was his bout against Conor McGregor, who had no professional boxing matches on his record. Now, he’s planning to fight Tenshin Nasukawa, an undefeated kickboxer/MMA fighter from Japan.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mayweather just held a press conference in Tokyo. Now, apparently, on December 31st, he’s fighting Nasukawa at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Furthermore, this match will be promoted by the Rizin Fighting Federation. With all of that being said, there are still a lot of details that we don’t know. First, we don’t know what the rule set of the fight will be. I mean, we all know Mayweather is a boxer, so is he really trying to engage in leg kicks and takedowns with Nasukawa? Shit, that could be disastrous for Mayweather, man. Look, as a man who’s been kicked in his legs and choked before, I wouldn’t recommend it to a novice, fam. Side note, both instances happened in a gym, bruh. I don’t need anyone out there thinking that I’m getting helmed up in these streets. I’m just saying.

In the end, we’ll see, son. Ultimately, Mayweather doesn’t move unless the bag is involved. So, I’m assuming that he’s about to get stupidly paid, man. By and by, if it’s a boxing match, then I probably won’t tune in. However, if it’s a kickboxing or MMA bout, then Mayweather might have my attention, fam. At the end of the day, he might be testing the waters of other combat sports. Hell, he needs to before he even thinks about stepping in a cage with Khabib Nurmagomedov or McGregor. Either way, he’d still get mauled, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Stop Hating, Floyd Mayweather

Man, I swear that attention actually matters more to Floyd Mayweather than money. I mean, anytime the spotlight is on someone else, he finds a way to weasel himself into the situation. On the real, for someone who’s had so much success, I really don’t understand why he always feels the need to be so damn petty. Like, regardless of how people may personally view him, he’s without question one of the greatest boxers ever. So, why won’t homie just shut the fuck up and ride off into the sunset?

Ok, for those who missed it, Mayweather has been doing a lot of fuckity-fuck shit lately. Well, let me be more specific, son. Real talk, he’s had an entire life of fuckity-fuck moments. Anyway, over the last view months, he’s been blatantly trying to steal Canelo Álvarez‘ shine. First, there was Mayweather’s out-of-the-blue announcement that he’s planning on fighting Manny Pacquiao again. Now, this random assertion came on the same day as the rematch between Canelo and Gennady Golovkin. Basically, Mayweather couldn’t let such a huge fight go down without throwing his name in the ring (pun intended).

Now, Mayweather wants to shit on Canelo’s new deal with DAZN. As previously reported, Canelo just signed a 5-year, 11-fight deal with the streaming service for $365 million. Essentially, he just signed the richest contract in sports history. In any case, instead of being happy for Canelo or simply minding his business, Mayweather took to Instagram to hate. He brought up the fact that he previously beat Canelo (while claiming that he’s a worse fighter than Conor McGregor) and bragged about his pay-per-view payouts. Listen, we all know that Mayweather made a lot of money and bested Canelo before. But, who the fuck was talking about that, man? Then, to make matters worse, he posted a picture of Oscar De La Hoya (former opponent/Canelo promoter) dressed in drag. For what? For God‘s sake, no one was even talking about Mayweather, fam!

In the end, Mayweather should just take his money and go home, bruh. Ultimately, no one wants to see him act like a hoe ass hoe anymore. In addition, no one wants to see him box Khabib Nurmagomedov. By and by, he’s had his time in the sun, man. At the end of the day, he’s just out here looking like a clown, son. Then again, this isn’t the first time he’s been out here looking like a clown, fam. Frankly, he may be better at that than boxing, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Stop The Hypocrisy, Conor McGregor Fans

Look, let me be clear from the beginning, son: Khabib Nurmagomedov was dead wrong for jumping in the crowd after beating Conor McGregor. However, I need ALL McGregor fans to shut the fuck up, man. I mean, the hypocrisy is fucking astounding, fam! Listen, by no means is McGregor a fucking saint, bruh. Frankly, he started shit with the wrong dude and finally had to face the consequences of his actions. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about how Nurmagomedov needs to be stripped.

Ok, for those who don’t love sports, UFC 229 went down on Saturday night. Now, all around, it was a night of great fights, son. Shit, Derrick Lewis knocked out Alexander Volkov after losing most of the fight, Tony Ferguson beat Anthony Pettis after a fucking WAR and a bunch of other awesome shit. In any case, the showdown between Nurmagomedov and McGregor was poised to be the highlight of the show. Moving on, the fight went exactly the way I thought it would, man: Nurmagomedov mauled McGregor. Hell, after hitting McGregor with copious amounts of ground and pound, Nurmagomedov choked him out in the fourth round.

Now, this is where shit went left, fam. After the fight, Nurmagomedov got into a war of words with Dillon Danis, McGregor’s partner in crime, and literally jumped over the cage to rumble with him. Needless to say, chaos ensued and Nurmagomedov was escorted out of the main area without his Lightweight Championship Belt. All I can say is, it was an ugly scene and Nurmagomedov should’ve done a better job of controlling himself. For God‘s sake, he already proved his point, bruh! Like, he already beat McGregor in convincing fashion. On the real, there was no need for this shit, son.

With all of that being said, I’m sick of people acting like McGregor is innocent in all of this. Keeping it a buck, HE STARTED THIS ENTIRE DEBACLE, MAN! Where was all of this “oh, this is so disgusting” talk when he threw a fucking dolly at a bus carrying Nurmagomedov? From that incident alone, he injured Ray Borg, shook Rose Namajunas to her core and fucked up Michael Chiesa‘s fight. Ok, yes, he did end up in a New York City court, but McGregor was never in jeopardy with the UFC, fam. Fuck, they literally used the dolly incident in their fucking promos for UFC 229!

On top of that, McGregor talked about Nurmagomedov’s religion, his country, his father AND his manager’s son. Real talk, I don’t want to hear none of that “it’s just business” talk, bruh. Yeah, insulting a man is one thing, but disrespecting everything he loves is something completely different, son. All I know is, I would’ve been livid too, man. The fact of the matter is, McGregor tried his usual antics with the wrong dude and ended up on the bad side of an ass whooping.

In the end, Dana White and the UFC better not strip Nurmagomedov of the belt, fam. Ultimately, I know they’re looking for an reason to give Conor back the title, bruh. By and by, McGregor has done too much fuck shit with no consequences, son. At the end of the day, Nurmagomedov should be fined but allowed to keep his title. He beat McGregor fair and square, man. However, knowing White and his usual treachery, he’s going to strip Nurmagomedov and make McGregor and Ferguson fight for the vacant title. Look, if that happens, everyone heard it here first, fam. But, I really hope that doesn’t happen, bruh. Long live The Eagle! LC out.

P.S. I’m also tired of people complaining that Nurmagomedov wrestles too much. Listen, I’ve seen too many “he needs to stop hugging him and fight him like a man” comments. Fam, don’t be mad because Nurmagomedov’s way of fighting is effective. The truth is, McGregor had no answer and was forced to tap. In addition, Nurmagomedov landed the hardest punch of the entire fight. Maybe, just maybe, McGregor needs to learn how to grapple better. He’s been submitted four times now. That is all.

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.

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.
