Big Rig Hendricks and the UFC fight night 105! 

Okay, in a few hours UFC fight night 105 will air. Off all the fights I am most intrigued to see Mr Johny Hendricks, the former welterweight champion! I was waiting eagerly for the weigh-ins and Mr Johny came in at 185.5 pounds. Haha so strange. I just thought he would be somewhere around 180. Idk how he weighs so much. Anyways Johny looked happy after long. Man remember his previous weight cut and how he looked. Gosh. Good he looks happy. He’s a former champ for god’s sake. He’s facing Hector Lombard, former Bellator champ! He’s no easy fight for Johny and no way is Hector a pushover. But if Johny can find his grove and if that KO power is back, I see him winning. And I want him to win too. After three straight loses, he has to win this. Man common Johny, decision or KO doesn’t matter just get the W. 

And the main event is super awesome as well. Black beast Derrick Lewis faces Travis Browne. Travis is at the most horrible stretch of his career as of now and Derrick is on a four fight win streak! Bad match up we think. But remember when Hapa was considered the next heavyweight champ? Yes he was supposed to be the next big thing just a couple of years ago. His career has slided down and his personal life also has been getting unnecessary attention of late as well. Cos of Ronda Rousey you say? Maybe, maybe not. Cos of Edmond the great you say? More maybe. What we know is that Travis is still under Ednomd. Idk, why man. His life you say? Ha yeah! But at the weigh-ins and the build up he looked calm. Derrick looks like a killer though. Idk man the dudes scary. And it was epic when he said he has to prove nada and he was fighting to provide for his family. That’s some emo stuff there. It was great Derrick saying he’s got nothing to prove when all other fighters out there say they will take the oppenets head off. Derrick though said something different. Something nice. I do not like Travis and I want Derrick to win. But Travis is looking great. I hope Derrick gets the W and goes on to face Francis Ngannou. That’s the match I want to see. Let me not get too ahead! Let’s watch the fight yeah. 

Rest of the card is pretty ordinary but definitely is intriguing. The main and co main is awesome though! The card definitely is better than UFC 208! No predictions for any other fight. It’s all in fantasy. Let’s see how many I get correct! 

See yeah all soon.

4 REASONS WHY I FREAKING LOVE MMA

Mixed martial arts, predominantly associated with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), is growing at a rapid pace. The company was bought for a mind blowing, candy ass whooping 4.2 billion US dollars recently,  wooo. That’s freaking awesome considering the fact that the UFC was bought for just 2 million US dollars by the Fertitta brothers in 2001.

Okay, let me stop, UFC alone is not MMA. MMA in itself is an art and UFC has the best artists who portray the art. UFC is like the super bowl, the mecca of mixed martial arts.

BUT JUST WHY? WHY DO TWO PEOPLE TRYING TO TAKE EACH OTHERS HEAD OFF CONSUME ME SOO GODAMNNN MUCH??

Let me at the very beginning state that the Natural Born Killer Carlos Condit is my favourite fighter. Initially, when I started watching his fights I wondered as to why such a handsome looking man would want to get his face busted open instead of trying to go model for some fashion agency.  As I started reading on net I understood the sport of mixed martial arts, its origins, the various styles, the larger-than-life characters  etc etcc etc

AND THEN I WAS HOOKED to the UFC and later on to Bellator, to a lesser extent since majority are exports of UFC. (Lets see where James The Strabanimal Gallagher goes from the hype) I am not saying that I understand all styles and such but the spectacle of MMA is mesmerizing.

4 REASONS WHY I FREAKING LOVE MMA

  1. It’s not the fight, fight is epic, not always, but yes fights are good. But what’s better are the drama during the weigh-ins. The build up. The trash talk. The confidence coming of 3 loses and saying that ‘I will take his head off’. The shock of getting knocked clean being a 5 to 1 favourite. That’s what is EPIC. The build-up to the fight is what gets hooked in the mind. The one who just watches fights, the casual fan ends up watching just Conor The Notorious/Mystic Mac McGregor and one who is hard-core fans wait for epic build ups like Derrick The Black Beast Lewis vs Travis ‘Hapa Ronda Rouseys boyfriend’ Browne.

  2. The emotions in the sport is unprecedented. From seeing the cockiest mofo Conor crying after winning, to Benson Henderson proposing his fiancée in the cage, to Michael Bisping finalyyyyy^10000 winning the UFC belt, to Michael Venom Page throwing a Poke ball, to super-hero-kicker Fabricio Werdum, to head movement head movement head movement no-no-no, the emotions in the sport is unprecedented, unlike any other sport on planet earth. The fighters experience the highest of the highs and lowest of the lows and we as hard-core audiences experience the same along with our favourite fighters.

  3. Dana White, president of UFC, is a character in his own ways. Those cursing; them verbals with ex UFC stars; Dana White Vs Ariel Helwani. Dana is a character who is as mesmerizing and important to them pre fight build ups.

  4. The time of the matches are a bonus with a maximum of 15 minutes or 25 minutes for a championship fights. The fights could end in a blinker or could drag for 25 longggggg minutes like that of Mr Daniel Cormiers, Sorry Daniel, and Do NOT BOX with RUMBLE JOHNSON, please. Saying so the anticipation is always there and there ain’t no better thriller script.

OH yeah baby, this is my first blog post and I will writing on Mma, hmm UFC, cos its amazing.

ALl that I post and write is solely my opinion and understanding and I do not intend to hurt anyone’s feelings or teach anyone MMA.

I bloody love MMA and I need am outlet to express myself and my views and hence I believe this is my platform.
