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.
