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.

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 respek 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.

Floyd Mayweather Better Stay Far Away From MMA

So, let’s be real, son. I mean, Floyd Mayweather is probably trolling us, man. Shit, if nothing else, he’s a master at keeping his name in the spotlight. In any case, I highly, HIGHLY doubt that Mayweather is entertaining an MMA fight. Why? Because he’d get fucking murdered, fam! Listen, as much as I box, I’m also aware of the skill set needed for a mixed martial arts match. With that being said, someone stop Floyd before he gets choked to death.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mayweather seems to be up to something. Just yesterday, he posted a cryptic video on Twitter and Instagram. In it, we can see him walking into an MMA cage, moving around like he’s getting acclimated to the scenery. Now, this is notable for a couple of reasons. First, if he were really entertaining an MMA match, he could make a MASSIVE amount of money. This is especially true if it were against Conor McGregor. Second, him and Dana White previously squashed the idea of him fighting in the UFC. So, this would be a complete about-face. All in all, I’m not exactly sure what Mayweather is trying to say here, if anything, bruh.

Look, it’s no secret that I’m an avid MMA fan, son. Anyway, while I spend a lot of time boxing now, I spent years doing Taekwondo as a kid. Meaning, I know what it’s like to get kicked in the face. Does Floyd? Because that’s EXACTLY the type of shit that will happen in an MMA fight, man. Listen, Mayweather’s boxing pedigree can’t be questioned, but is he ready for all of the other disciplines? Has he grappled before? Does he know what it’s like to get kicked repeatedly on the legs? Shit, if Floyd walks into an octagon, he’s going to get fucking mangled, fam! All I know is, he better get A LOT of practice in before he gets assassinated for money, bruh.

In the end, I don’t even know why I fell for Mayweather’s trap, son. Ultimately, this video probably means nothing and he’s just fucking with us. By and by, I hope that’s the case, man. At the end of the day, if he steps onto the mat against McGregor, then Conor is probably going to head kick the fuck out of Mayweather. Then again, maybe that’s EXACTLY what I want to see, fam. Hey, Dana, make this shit happen, bruh! That is all. LC out.

My Apologies To Stipe Miocic

So, this past weekend was a wild one for combat sports, son. I mean, there was so much violence on Saturday night, I didn’t know where to place my focus, man. Between the UFC, Bellator MMA and Errol Spence Jr. vs. Lamont Peterson, I got my fix of chaos and mayhem, fam. With that being said, I owe a particular fighter an apology, bruh. All jokes aside, I’m sorry, Stipe Miocic. Listen, I failed to give the reigning UFC Heavyweight champion a chance against Francis Ngannou. Needless to say, I was sorely mistaken. All in all, Miocic beat the breaks off of Ngannou, folks. I guess the Ngannou hype was too much and too soon.

Ok, to be fair, I was fully aware of how great Miocic was/is. Shit, he was already the champion and had to beat some serious competition to get there. Whether we’re talking about Junior dos Santos, Alistair Overeem or Fabrício Werdum, Miocic has defeated a number of legends on his way to the top. Now, despite all of that, I’ve watched Ngannou hit people, son. Listen, it often looks like murder when Ngannou’s fists connect with people’s faces. Hell, just look at what he did to Overeem, man. Real talk, I was positive Alistair was dead for at least three seconds, fam. All I know is, I truly believed that if Ngannou hit Miocic, he’d go night-night, bruh.

Now, when it came to the actual fight, NONE of that happened, son. Ok, yes, Ngannou did hit Miocic with a couple of shots. Yes, Miocic’s eye and ear did get fucked up. However; Miocic executed a brilliant game plan, man. Basically, he relied on his cardio and his wrestling to outwork Ngannou. On the real, I was a bit surprised by how bad Ngannou was on the ground. Look, he had no way to defend the takedown and he was just getting pummeled, fam. On top of that, he was gassed out by the end of the first round. By and by, he needs MAJOR work in certain aspects of his game, bruh.

In the end, Miocic proved a lot of people wrong, son. Listen, it’s no secret that Dana White and company put the marketing machine behind Ngannou. In any case, instead of caving under the pressure, Miocic found a way to win and broke the record for the most Heavyweight title defenses. Ultimately, he believes he’s the best Heavyweight of all time and he might be right, man. At the end of the day, Cain Velasquez might be the only fighter left who could say otherwise. That is all. LC out.

Francis Ngannou Is An Alien!

So, here’s a fun fact about me: I’m obsessed with Mixed Martial Arts. Like, I watch an exorbitant amount of MMA events, son. I mean, I watch the UFC and Bellator religiously, man. Hell, if someone told me that two dudes were having a Muay Thai fight on the block, I’d probably watch that shit too, fam. With that being said, I’ve already become a big fan of Francis Ngannou. Now, he may have only 12 fights under his belt, but at the rate he’s progressing, he may soon be the UFC Heavyweight champion. Shit, either that or he’ll kill somebody in the octagon, bruh. All in all, I’m down for any scenario, folks.

Ok, I was inspired to write about this dude because of the carnage he unleashed at UFC 218. Now, in case anybody missed it, this guy punched Alistair Overeem into an alternate dimension, son. Shit, just look at the embedded photo above, man. Listen, Overeem was put to sleep before he even hit the ground, fam! To make matters worse, Ngannou’s leg wasn’t even planted properly, meaning there’s no way he hit Overeem with full force. So, if he could mangle a man with only a portion of his strength, then what kind of Hulk shit is this dude really capable of, bruh?

In the end, there isn’t much else to say here, son. Ngannou is a monster and he’s about to get a crack at Stipe Miocic, the current Heavyweight champion. Ultimately, Miocic is a beast himself, but I don’t know if he has any answers for that Ngannou onslaught. All I know is, that fight can’t come soon enough, man. By and by, I’ll catch everyone at UFC 220, fam! The way I see it, there’s NO WAY the fight between Ngannou and Miocic goes to a decision. Real talk, someone might perish in that cage, bruh. In any case, let the mayhem begin! LC out.

Conor McGregor Won Without Winning

So, the fight actually happened, huh? Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor finally stopped talking and threw hands, huh? Anyway, as expected, Mayweather won, bruh. I mean, anybody who thought the outcome would be different is a damn fool, son. In any case, despite losing the fight, McGregor actually won the night, man. On the real, if we look at three specific factors, we’d all see that McGregor was the real victor on Saturday night. Now, before people start complaining, let me explain, fam.

First, let’s talk about the money, bruh. Keep in mind, this was McGregor’s FIRST professional boxing match. With that being said, not only did he luck up by getting a chance to fight a legend, but he also got a buttload of money in the process. Now, from the purse alone, he’s reportedly going to make about $30 million. In addition, he also has a promotional stake in the fight, which could net him another $100 million. Fam, did I mention that this was his FIRST PROFESSIONAL BOXING MATCH?! Man, this dude might really make nine figures from his first fight! That’s fucking insane, son!

Next, let’s talk about McGregor’s performance, son. Keeping it a buck, he gave Mayweather a little bit of static in those early rounds, man. Like, McGregor actually hit him with a couple of good shots, fam. Ultimately, it wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, but the fight wasn’t as goofy as I thought it would be, bruh. For God‘s sake, he hit Mayweather with 111 punches, people! Shit, not even Manny Pacquiao touched Mayweather that many times, folks! Granted, he was running from Pacquiao the entire fight, but facts are facts, kid. Frankly, McGregor didn’t suck as much as I expected him to.

Lastly, let’s talk about the fact that McGregor went out on his feet. Ok, yes, the referee did stop the fight in the 10th round, but McGregor didn’t go down, son. I mean, by that point of the fight, Mayweather was slapping him at will, man. Like, he literally knocked snot out of McGregor’s nose, fam. Needless to say, shit was getting bad, bruh. In any case, McGregor still stayed on his feet. He took an undefeated fighter to the championship rounds and managed to lose standing up. Look, people can hate, but that’s a feat in and of itself, folks.

In the end, McGregor got the W by taking an L, man. All I know is, he shit-talked his way into a stupid amount of money, son. Real talk, if having a big mouth could get me that kind of pay day, then I need to up my game, fam. With that being said, Andre Ward‘s a pussy and I could knock him out by the second round. Is that enough for me to get a massive check? No? Ok, well, I’ll keep trying, bruh. LC out.
