MMA is something. Most of the time, the person who should win a fight (on paper) actually wins the fight. But it’s the chaos we keep coming back for.
I am here for the chaos.
Speaking of which, why does RDA keep talking about a title shot? He’s not fighting for the title when he can’t even get past Colby Covington. Usman is getting his hand raised this weekend.
Sage is kinda sorta cut. Why? He’s not very exciting, but the Sage and Paige show was never about fighting skills, was it? And he liked marketing himself as an extremely muscular Ken doll. He’s always on social media in various action figure poses. And flexing on airplanes. Hmm.
Some people are still crying over Chuck’s body. You know, Rachael Ostovich got into a real violent altercation back at the house and she just got cleared to fight. That’s a little bit more disturbing to me than Chuck cashing a 250K pay check.
Dana White said nobody cared about those flyweights. He’s not wrong, but the problem was that DJ was boring. He even had a commercial with the also boring Sage/Ken doll. Dude. I actually like Henry Cejudo, and was rooting for him to beat DJ. I thought that win would help move the division to some exciting fights. But now who knows.
UFC Adelaide: Tuivasa, Hunt, Pedro, Craig, Reis, Kara-France.
TUF Finale: Usman. I want to see Antonina Shevchenko in a real fight, and I’m not sure if this will be much of a challenge, considering she’s hyped as being a Muay Thai champ. And that’s all I care about from that card.
