UFC 238 was something. We saw Valentina knock out Jessica Eye, Cowboy pulled the nose blow trick (the one that didn’t work for Anthony Smith, remember?), and Henry Cejudo became not just the double champ, but the triple champ – Triple C!
What a night.
I used to think the double champ thing was exciting, but now the thrill is gone. Once guys win two belts things get a little wonky. They start asking for circus fights against people long retired or big name guys on the decline. They no longer want to move forward and face the next challenger, they always go backwards. Back in the record books to the OGs, hoping one of them will need money enough to stop whatever they’re doing to fight a newcomer.
Then the Twitter fights get started. Maybe if they get a dude good and mad on social media that will get the guy to sign the contract.
Oh well. Like the man said, it is what it is. Good luck to Triple C. He looked great against Marlon Moraes.
