Jorge Masvidal Schooled Nate Diaz

So, it really happened, son. I mean, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz really went at it for the “Baddest Motherfucker” belt. Side note, I really hope that Dana White and the UFC compensated Diaz for that trademark, man. On the real, we ALL know who invented that title, folks. In any case, outside of that maddening doctor stoppage, the fight went exactly the way that I thought it would. All in all, Masvidal is a much better fighter than Diaz, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Masvidal and Diaz headlined the UFC 244 card. Now, keeping it a buck, I’d have to write an entirely separate post to talk about all of the other fights, bruh. Anyway, when it came to the main event, it was a pretty one-sided affair, son. Like, through the first three rounds, Masvidal was easily handling Diaz, man. Between the body kicks, the faster hands and the harder punches, Masvidal was straight piecing Diaz up, fam. Listen, I don’t think the doctor should’ve stopped the fight, but I also don’t see how Diaz could’ve changed the result, bruh. Yeah, his cuts were bad, but Masvidal deserved to finish the brilliant fight that he was fighting, brethren.

Now, to my confusion, I keep hearing Diaz fans say that he would’ve turned it around in the fourth and fifth rounds. Shit, even Diaz himself said that his game plan was to tire Masvidal out and then take it to him in the championship rounds. Well, I have some bad news for Diaz fans: there’s literally NO evidence to support that theory, son.

Look, based on my research, Diaz has fought six five-round fights in his career (Masvidal, two against Conor McGregor, Benson Henderson, Jim Miller and Hermes França). The truth is, he’s lost four of those fights, man. In fact, the two fights that he did win (against McGregor and Miller), he finished in the second round. Meaning, there was no last-minute onslaught that secured the victory for him. So, the way I see it, he didn’t have a fucking prayer against Masvidal, fam. Frankly, Jorge proved that he’s a way more talented fighter than Diaz, bruh.

On another note, Diaz always has some excuse for why he loses fights. Listen, before he clashed with Masvidal, Diaz said that he previously lost matches because dudes wanted to “hug him” and not actually scrap. Well, Masvidal didn’t do any of that, son. In actuality, he sonned Diaz in a mostly stand-up battle. If anything, I’m mad at the doctor for giving Diaz a way out, man. Real talk, I wanted to see Masvidal finish that dominating performance, fam.

In the end, Masvidal is in his prime right now, bruh. Ultimately, he should absolutely get a title shot against the winner of Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. By and by, I’m not really interested in a rematch between Masvidal and Diaz. At the end of the day, there was no proof that Diaz could do anything against him, son. All I know is, Diaz and his fans need to come to grips with reality, man. Then again, that’ll probably never happen, fam. 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.

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.
