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.

The Giants Fan In Me Can’t Watch The Super Bowl

So, what’s a guy to do, son? Do I choose Satan or do I choose the Antichrist? I mean, that’s EXACTLY how I feel trying to pick between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. I mean, as a New York Giants fan, Super Bowl LII is the worst shit ever, man! Look, regardless of the outcome, a team I can’t stand is going to be the NFL champion. Shit, this is precisely how I felt back in 2005 when Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens faced off against Tom Brady and Deion Branch. Either way, I’m not even sure if I can watch this shit, fam!

Listen, let’s skip the pretense, bruh. On the real, it’s simple mathematics, son. The Eagles are in the Giants’s division and the Patriots have been our Super Bowl nemesis. Look, there’s NO possible way for me to feel good about this championship game, man. As it stands, either the Eagles are going to win their first Super Bowl or Brady is going to get ring number six. Either way, the outcome is going to be the trashiest of the trash, fam. In addition, since Justin Timberlake seems to be embracing his inner MAGA, I can’t even look forward to the halftime show!

In the end, I have nothing else to give, bruh. Ultimately, I don’t give a fuck about what others may say. Yeah, I’m ABSOLUTELY salty, son! By and by, I haven’t supported the NFL all season for what they did to Colin Kaepernick and I will continue to sit on the sidelines. All I know is, I still have a trash ass Knicks team to root for and a ton of UFC fights to watch. 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.

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.

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.
