Since I tend to talk a lot about political awareness and movies(and being aware of Not being a mindless fanboy),I’ll just wisely turn my attention to a few recent going-on in the MMA world…
- CM Punk Delays His UFC Match(Once Again): Two years in training for his UFC debut match,CM Punk has once again delayed his long awaited UFC debut match(against chosen opponent Mickey Gall) by going into back surgery for an issue that is related to his WWE wrestling days. Many UFC/MMA fans and wrestling fans have grown angry and impatient over this,claiming that Punk is too chickenshit of facing Gall and fearing that he’ll lose,as well as rumored reports coming out claiming that Punk has lost 3/4 of his training matches,something whichs not very good news to hear. Knowing the type of guy that UFC CEO/head honcho Dana White is,if Punk keeps it up with these constant delays and setbacks for this match,Dana will have no reason but to toss Punk straight out the door and out of the UFC. If Punk is smart,he’ll properly play the ball that lays in his court otherwise he’ll just deflate that ball and leave the court.
* Connor McGregor Wants No More Vegas Fights After UFC 200: Connor Mac just made this statement about how he yearns to no longer fight in Las Vegas after UFC 200 for the sake of catering of his large Irish fanbase on the East Coast,which is ironic considering that Connor Mac found his success in Las Vegas and has a home there,for it is his loss if he passes up earning the Vegas big pay that is a major part of his “rich and flaunting it,and damn proud of it” image/persona,which is part of what makes Connor a unique and fascinating in-ring fighter(both inside and outside of the MMA octagon).
* Bellator 149: Boy,what an on-line success this Bellator event was all over Twitter: Not !!! It was heavily trashed as one of the all-time worst fight event Ever,something that I can partially agree with since many of the early-to-mid card matches were basically the standard matches that you’d see at an indie MMA show,with the fights between Dada 5000 and Kimbo Slice and a Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock match coming off as pretty sluggish. I’ll give Gracie credit for still having it(since this is his first MMA match in years),but Shamrock,Slice,and Dada 5000 all came off as very sad,since Dada 5000 was recovering from fatigue of a previous MMA bout that he had a few days prior to this event and the wear and tear on Dada widely showed,for why the officials at Bellator allowed Dada to fight while being in a terrible physical condition is something I’ll never understand since a fighter with that much fatigue shouldn’t have been given the okay to fight on an important event and it only massively hurt the event with the fans seeing the really bad results of it. I feel sorry for everyone involved with this event,since Shamrock was openly upset that his match was cut short and he looked a lot older than he actually is(at 52),and veteran MMA referee Big John McCarthy looked very freeze dried and his mustache and goatee that looked glued on(ala Steven Seagal),for the less said about his longtime style of refereeing,the better. And Kimbo Slice was basically fighting like–Kimbo Slice. And for mighty mouth Joe Rogan to go off on trashing this event(which I really can’t blame him for doing),Rogan himself looks like he’s slowly transforming into Ben Grimm/The Thing(of The Fantastic Four),with the way his body and muscles look so jacked up and his nose looks so large and puffed up. It’s a good thing that this event aired for free on Spike TV,otherwise people would be much more infuriated.Hopefully,Bellator and their organizers(led by Scott Coker)will massively get their full shit together and make sure that Bellator 150 will be an awful lot better event(if they want to remain the Number Two MMA federation).
That’s all I have to say for now…
