That really just happened, huh? Were my dreams really just dashed by the Boogeyman, El Cucuy? I’m not going to dedicate an entire 700 word blog post to how I feel about this, but you can basically just take all the excitement from my last post and replace it with shock and disappointment. In terms of disbelief this is right up there with finding out Jon Jones got popped again for PEDs following the second DC fight. I find myself thinking, “Is this really happening?” Continue reading “Tony Ferguson Gets Injured 1 week before UFC 223 – WTF”
I’m struggling right now between seasonal depression, and my love for a good snow day.
I honestly don’t know if I can take another whole day trapped in my house alternating between playing video games and watching Netflix (I know, cry me a river right?), but at the same time I can’t help but hope for blizzard conditions on Tuesday. Besides, in my current state of existence, I am already pretty cut-off from the world outside of my job and my gym. Everyday I go from my house, to my job, to the gym, and back home to bed. It’s like clockwork – and I don’t hate it! What bothers me though is the feeling that I am sleepwalking through my life. My everyday routine has become so… routine… that weeks are beginning to fly by faster than they ever have before. I can go through a full 1 week cycle and not interact with a single new person. Just the same people every day, every week, for weeks on end.
So what does this have to do with the snow?
There’s no longer a reason to doubt whether or not this fight is actually going to happen. It is clear that both fighters are on board, and Dana White has come out recently saying he would not stop the fight from taking place. Plus the latest reports point to a deal being very close to done for September (maybe?), which was basically confirmed by Conor at a boxing event not long ago.
This leaves money as the only obstacle, and because this will almost certainly be the biggest PPV event since Wrestlemania XIV… Wrestlemania XIV? The start of the Attitude Era? Boston Gardens? New Age Outlaws vs. Cactus Jack and Terry Funk in the first ever Dumpster match? The Undertaker does battle with his brother Kane for the first time ever? Stone Cold defeats Shawn Michaels to begin his reign as WWE champion? C’mon? You don’t know XIV? Anyways…
Bottom line is money will not be in short supply. There could, however, be some disagreements over who should get the larger piece of the pie or how that money should be split among promotions and organizations. Keep in mind though, as of recently, McGregor is killing Mayweather in PPV sales. Apparently people are just now realizing how Floyd has managed to stay undefeated all these years – Never get hit, and counter effectively. Masterful boxing, but not very entertaining to the average fan.
On the other hand, Conor is a supernova of excitement both in and out of the ring. He is one of the finest trash talkers of our generation, and is able to back it up with knock outs and bloodbath performances. Still, no one seems to be giving him a shot in this match. Some even ridicule the notion of it ever happening. Well I’m here to tell you, not only will this most certainly happen, but Conor is probably going to walk away with the victory as well. Here’s why…
