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.

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.

The Immortal Manny Pacquiao

Look, let’s just skip the formalities, son. On the real, I truly enjoyed watching Manny Pacquiao outclass Keith Thurman, man. I mean, after allllllllll of the talking that Thurman did in the lead-up to the fight, it was satisfying to watch the old man put on a show. All in all, I know Pacquiao doesn’t want to retire, but now would be a perfect time for him to ride off into the sunset.

Ok, for those who missed it because they hate themselves, a huge Welterweight showdown happened on Saturday night. Now, the bout pitted undefeated WBA (Super) champion Thurman versus WBA (Regular) champion Pacquiao. Side note, I legitimately don’t have enough time to explain how much I hate the belt structure in boxing. Like, why are there so many fucking titles, fam? Seriously, can’t we just have one champion in each weight class? Real talk, why is that so cotdamn difficult, bruh?

In any case, this fight was designed to unify the WBA belts. Moving on, many people, myself included, wondered how much Pacquiao had left in the tank. Shit, he’s 40 years old and has been a professional fighter since 1995. Could he really hang with a hard-hitting and unbeaten fighter who’s 10 years his junior? Well, Pacquiao answered that question in the first round, son. After some perfectly-placed body shots, he knocked Thurman down for only the second time in his career. From that point on, Pacquiao initiated most of the offense. Keeping it a buck, Thurman got some good shots in, but they weren’t enough to stop Pacquiao from pressing the action.

When it was all said and done, Pacquiao earned a split decision victory over Thurman. By the way, that outcome was bullshit, man. Hell, that was clearly a unanimous victory, fam. Look, people love looking at punch totals, but neglect the quality of the shots landed. All I can say is, take a glance at Thurman’s face, bruh. Honestly, he looks like he got hit by a mallet, son. Listen, judging by the way he spoke after the fight, Thurman knew he lost, folks. It just is what it is.

In the end, I don’t want to hear any slander about Pacquiao’s boxing ability, son. Ultimately, this dude is outdoing guys from a completely different generation. By and by, I’ll always respect the fact that he’s willing to fight anyone, man. At the end of the day, a true champion doesn’t run from a challenge, fam. 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.
