Wow, fat heavyweight DC destroys Stipe, definitively proving dad bod is the best base for MMA. Makes you think what he would've achieved if he never moved down to light heavyweight. Also that WWE promo with Lesnar was cheese as fuck but DC's earned it; pay that man his money.

Cool

Hmmm... I dunno. Clean Jon Jones beating DC? He couldn't even beat the rap. Hell, they even gave him a free pass for the first fight and he still found a way to fuck up. I mean, okay, he'd probably whoop his ass even if he were clean, but Jon Jones is just a stylistic nightmare for DC. If we were to compare who had the greater legacy though, I'd say you have to give the nod to DC. Jones on gear is definitely a contender for GOAT for sure, but far from top dog.

- His fight with Gustaffson and Ovince St. Preux exposed some chinks in his armor. Namely, fighters with reach and know how to use it. Admittedly, DC is the exact opposite of this and therefore can't use this strategy to win, but I could see Jones struggling against some longer heavyweights. DC's record at heavyweight speaks for itself.

- He's 1-3 in his last 4 matches against USADA. I'll admit, hiding under the gym's ring to avoid the inspector showed his endurance and tenacity, but that mostly luck; That strategy didn't work in the rematches. DC's USADA record remains spotless.

- He lost a clear cut decision against the pregnant woman in Jones DWI 2 and was awarded a robbery decision of community service in Jones DWI 1. I doubt DC's even been arrested.

Conclusion?





Edit: I think Mark Hunt put it best:

I'm never happy to see DC win. After the feud between him and Jones, I learned that both were petulant children at best, but more realistically were just violent babies. That's not why I found MMA interesting in the first place.

So to anyone following the social media feud between Dana White and former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub, Schaub unleashed hell in a BRUTAL tweet yesterday.

OH THE HUMANITY

I am astounded at how hard it is to find MMA-themed "sweaty towel guy" parodies

I do not accept “you’d be a 40 year old kickboxing coach” as a mega-burn. That’s a perfectly good job, Schaub.

No, but the line about praying at night for a Conor text and that last bit about Eskimo brothers (look it up at your own peril) are exactly the kind of things that would make ol’ Penis With Ears mad, and they DO qualify.

Cliff’s Notes version: Schaub was always vocal in his opposition to the UFC/Reebok deal, which was a sore spot between the two even after Schaub retired in 2014, and after something he said about strikers transitioning to MMA, Dana butted in and started the war of disses leading up to this.

Collector’s Edition: https://www.mmafighting.com/2018/7/1...instagram-post

The article doesn’t mention Dana saying the only reason Schaub has a career after MMA is because he’s friends with Joe Rogan (which Schaub admits). Also worth mentioning; Rogan openly called him out after his last fight saying that he doesn’t have the talent to handle elite UFC heavies and that he didn’t want his friend to get hurt, setting in motion the events that lead to his retirement.

Physical debasement is inherent in the nature of martial arts competition
but
for the sake of my own mind
I do not wish to believe that Ronda Rousey would so fully emotionally debase herself
as to perform coitus with Dana White

I take the joke literally, i.e. White is such a servile groupie nerd with regard to his top draws that he would in fact fetch and carry Ronda's dirty washing.

Chris Leben, he of the life-threatening chronic heart condition, is allegedly coming out of retirement to fight Phil Baroni, he of the manifest pugilistic dementia, on a bare-knuckle boxing card in beautiful downtown Casper, Wyoming.

If you're wondering why this is being allowed to happen, well, remember that Wyoming is where Tommy Morrison got away with fighting a blatant work while he was on the verge of full-blown AIDS.

I guess there's something to be said about going out on your own terms? (because this is totally assisted suicide)

I'm not sure what exactly is the deal today between the UFC, Nate Diaz, and Dustin Poirier, but if Nate Diaz is for it I am too and if the UFC is for it I'm agin it. I am confident these principles will guide me to the truth.

He won by Stockton rules though, which is a moral victory in and of itself. Laying and praying may have given Cejudo the edge on the scorecards, but at what cost?

AV may not be here with us, but I am certain he is out there somewhere, shedding a tear in joy at the rumor that RIZIN is thinking about using the Saitama Super Arena's max-capacity stadium mode for their NYE show. Wonder what they have planned*

Conor may be ignorant trash, but he’s ignorant trash that does his homework. Went for the THROAT at today’s conference.

”Shut up, Ali Abdelaziz, terrorist snitch! Yeah, I know a lot about you as well! How’s Noah? HOW’S NOAH?!”

(Ali is Khabib’s manager, and also has been a government informant against the Muslims of America jihadist group he was a member of. Noah is his son that he allegedly owes five figures in child support.)

Here’s the files covering that whole informant business.
