Dana White releases Cris Cyborg in the UFC over differences with rematch with Amanda Nunes… I’m siding with Cyborg on this one…

I stopped watching UFC a long time ago. I love UFC and MMA but I can’t watch ’em all the time since their ppv’s are way overpriced.

Anyway, I find this feud kind of interesting so I thought I would respond my thoughts on it. From what I’m reading, Cris Cyborg is dying for a rematch with Amanda Nunes in which she lost to her by knockout last year at UFC 232. She’s been begging for the rematch for a long while but Dana maintains that she doesn’t want the rematch and claims that Cyborg is afraid of losing to Nunes again. From what I’m seeing, Cyborg denies those claims and Cyborg really wants the rematch pretty badly. Like I said, looks like she’s been campaigning for the rematch for a while now.

If she wants the rematch then Dana should give it to her, what’s the problem? Why does Dana have to go out of his way and terminate her contract just because she wants a rematch? That’s all she really wants really.

What is Dana afraid of? Is he afraid of her because she’s different? That’s what it’s sounding like to me. I think the real reason Dana ended up terminating her is ’cause he doesn’t want the way he treated her behind the scenes to get out there… he’s afraid of getting in trouble for his harassment and bullying against her. Either that or he’s scared to death of her actually winning the rematch.

Why does Dana keep putting words in her mouth by saying she doesn’t want the fight when she kept saying publicly she does want it? Her lashing out at him and UFC is a smokescreen to duck a rematch? Really? When fighters want a fight, they really want it. They don’t play around.

With that being said, I stand with Cyborg. I love UFC and MMA, don’t get me wrong but I’m not afraid to say that Dana can be a bit of an asshole.

Thoughts on CM Punk losing for 2nd time in UFC… is he done??? It’s pretty likely that he is…

I didn’t watch UFC 225 last night and I’m glad I didn’t. I love CM Punk and all, but I had a bad feeling he was going to lose for the second time in UFC. It didn’t turn out to be a very good fight at all so I’m glad I didn’t waste my money on it. Punk got beat pretty bad and was left in a bloody mess as you can see.

CM Punk releases statement on UFC 225 loss to Mike Jackson

Is Punk done in the UFC and MMA altogether? According to Dana White himself, he said he is but Punk himself hasn’t responded to Dana yet. You can tell that Punk has passion for MMA and loves it. He wants to continue and keep at it despite losing and not being very good. He does have a lot of balls for wanting to give MMA a try, though. Dana may say Punk is done but looks like Punk wants to keep going. In my opinion, Dana shouldn’t be so quick in ending his career after two losses. I think Dana should give him another chance and give him a third fight.

Punk likes it and you can tell that he does. If it turns out that Punk will be done with UFC and MMA, what’s next? A return to professional wrestling like in WWE? I doubt it ’cause Punk clearly said already that he’s done with WWE and wrestling altogether. If he’s completely done with UFC/WWE then I don’t know what he’ll do next. We’ll have to wait and see. Maybe he will return to WWE, who knows? Anything is possible.

I still love watching MMA, though. I just don’t watch it that much anymore ’cause their ppvs are overpriced.

Ronda Rousey should consider having Dominick Cruz as her friend/mentor…

After Ronda’s fight against Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in which Ronda lost miserably, Ronda couldn’t take the loss very well. After that fight got over with Ronda gave the ref some nasty looks and then she stormed out of the cage. She didn’t stay to give Amanda respect or answer questions from Joe Rogan.

In the video above is Dominick Cruz who lost the fight to Cody Garbrandt. Watch the video above, seriously. It’s good stuff. Dominick sure knows how to be humble about losing a fight! I think Ronda should have Dominick Cruz has her friend/mentor. This guy would be perfect on how to give advice to Ronda on dealing with a loss.

Ronda was the one who talked Dana White into having women fight in UFC and Dana gave her what she wanted. Ronda was undefeated for a little while and now she’s finally starting to lose. Ronda have to learn that if she wants to get into the fighting business, she’s not gonna win all the time. I used to support and love Ronda but now I’m losing my respect for her simply because of her bitchy attitude. There’s no doubt that Ronda is a bit of a narcissist and egomaniac. I think everybody in UFC has got her fighting skills all figured out.

Like most people, I too think it’s ridiculous that Ronda got paid $3 million for this fight even though she lost. Bullshit. She’s really that valuable to the company? Soon people are gonna forget her. Ronda should listen to Dominick Cruz above as to how to deal with a loss! Kudos Domonick! That’s the name of the game when you want to get into professional fighting sports, you’re either gonna win or lose. Ronda thinks that bantamweight title is all for herself when she needs to realize that other women are going to come after her for that belt.

Ronda clearly doesn’t like to lose fights at all but she needs to learn to take it like an adult. Quit crying Ronda and deal with it!

Ronda Rousey vs. Amanda Nunes, was that her final fight in UFC for Ronda? If so, what’s next???

Well last night on PPV, I watched UFC 207 ’cause I didn’t want to miss the Ronda Rousey vs. Amanda Nunes championship fight. While it was disappointing and sad that Ronda took a good beating and lost, it was still a good fight anyways. I was hoping Ronda would come back in true form and beat Amanda’s ass but instead, the opposite happened. Amanda ended up beating Ronda pretty quick. The fight was very quick. It only lasted a couple of seconds. All it took was a couple of punches for Amanda to win and that was it. The referee stopped the fight. Still a good fight though and it made me like Amanda Nunes even more.

I thought all the other fights were really good too especially Cody Garbrandt vs. Dominick Cruz, that fight right there would have to be the best fight of the night, I would say.

Anyway, back to Ronda’s loss last night, she looked pretty pissed and upset after the fight got over with, though. Ronda seemed upset that the referee stopped the fight so soon and she wanted to keep it going. Ronda didn’t stay after the fight to interview with Joe Rogan and she didn’t even give Amanda a handshake or a hug either. Amanda tried to give Ronda a hug but Ronda and her team were quick to leave the Octagon. Amanda got to hug one of Ronda’s staff members, though. Amanda was just trying to give Ronda respect last night but Ronda wasn’t having it.

So looks like it’s gonna be over for Ronda in UFC. She might get forced to retire soon but we’ll wait to see what Dana White says. She’s probably gonna be done ’cause she lost two fights and I think Ronda is getting too worn out. What’s next for Ronda if she does get forced to retire? Well Ronda will probably act in movies full time, she’ll become a full time actress for sure I think. She can also do some stuff with WWE ’cause WWE wants to sign her pretty badly. Not sure if Ronda is gonna go for a full time WWE run or part time, we’ll have to wait and see. Anyway, if Ronda does get signed for WWE, I can see a Charlotte vs. Ronda match happening at the next Wrestlemania for sure ’cause I believe that’s what they want.

I feel bad for Ronda but she have to learn that there will be other women who are better than her in fighting. I think Ronda just realized that last night. I wish Ronda the best in her future.

So how long CM Punk’s future in UFC/MMA would last???

So last night on ppv, I couldn’t resist watching “UFC 203” ’cause like most UFC and WWE fans, I too was curious on how CM Punk was gonna do in his first MMA caged fight. I just had to see it for myself, ya know? A lot of people were wondering whether CM Punk was gonna do bad or do good but as expected CM Punk did pretty badly. Which is expected since CM Punk doesn’t have much of an martial arts and MMA background. CM Punk is a professional wrestler. He’s got a huge background in wrestling instead so it was expected that Punk wouldn’t do well against Mickey Gall. The fight last night was an easy win for Mickey Gall. Gall beat Punk in a bloody mess and Gall wouldn’t let Punk get a chance to do anything either. Punk tried his best to fight back and defend himself but Gall was too tough. It was a pretty good fight, though ’cause I was impressed with Mickey Gall.

After the fight got over with, I gained even more respect for CM Punk. That guy has been my favorite wrestler for years. Love Punk or hate him, what that guy did was pretty ballsy. He really was brave and courageous to do what he did last night.

I loved Punk’s speech after the fight ’cause he said that life is about getting knocked down and getting back up. He also said you must believe in yourself. He said that if you want to go after your dreams, you can’t listen to anybody and go for it. Which is good advice and I’ve had that attitude for a long time now. Going after what I want and not giving a shit what anyone thinks.

So what is Punk’s future gonna be like in MMA? Will his MMA career be a success or will it be short? Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m pretty sure Dana White will give Punk another chance so we’ll see how Punk does on his next fight. Keep in mind, Brock Lesnar lost his first UFC fight to Frank Mir but came out on top after so the same could happen to Punk.

It was a pretty good ppv though. I thought the best fights of the night last night were Jessica Andrade vs. Joanne Calderwood, CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall and Stipe Miocic vs. Alistair Overeem. The other two fights RIvera vs. Faber and Browne vs. Werdum were pretty boring as fuck, though.

I wish CM Punk the best of luck in his MMA career. He’s gonna have to learn that this isn’t WWE and MMA is a whole different thing.

Last night’s UFC 200 ppv was surprisingly really good, glad I got it!

Last night’s UFC ppv was worth the money after all ’cause I enjoyed every fight. Even Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt was a really really good fight. Brock did it, though. He proved UFC fans wrong once again. Fans didn’t think Brock would be able to do it but he did. Lesnar won by unanimous decision. Most Lesnar fights were kind of quick and kind of boring but this one was actually a lot of fun. Lesnar vs. Hunt was a tough and brutal fight but both men did really great. Neither one didn’t want to lose over a KO or TKO so they did all they can to avoid that. Like I’ve been predicting Lesnar was gonna do all he can to avoid Hunt’s hard punches ’cause Lesnar knows Hunt is a hard hitter. Lesnar did exactly that. Well, Mark Hunt did punch Lesnar quite a lot and Lesnar fought back. Lesnar actually had a cut above his eye. This was a great fight ’cause you never knew what was gonna happen and it was unpredictable. Even though Mark Hunt lost, Hunt still was a pretty tough dude, though. I was real surprised by Lesnar ’cause he was doing really good and putting on an exciting fight actually. After last night, I respect Brock Lesnar even more now. I predicted Lesnar would lose the fight but thought wrong but I’m happy for Lesnar that he won for his comeback fight, though.

One thing for sure, I’m glad that Lesnar gave the police a shout-out after all the stuff going on in Dallas. That was awesome to see.

All the other fights were really good too. I loved Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes, that fight was quick and brutal but really good. Miesha in a bloody mess and she tapped out, giving Amanda the victor and now Amanda is the new champ.

All the other fights were exciting too… Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne was great. So was Anderson Silva vs. Daniel Cormier, I’m still shocked that Silva lost Cormier. Silva is the greatest of all time and a legend. Aldo vs. Edgar was another good one.

It was an exciting UFC ppv last night. Definitely worth the money and glad I watched it. I don’t watch UFC ppvs all the time ’cause I don’t like paying a lot of money for ppvs but once in blue moon, I’ll watch one only if the card is good enough.

Just bought UFC 200 ppv, looking forward to it later tonight!!!

I took a long break from watching UFC ppvs ’cause I hated paying a lot of money for them but I couldn’t resist this one. I really like Brock Lesnar. I have liked him for a pretty long time. Followed him through his WWE career and followed him through his UFC career. I’ve seen every Brock Lesnar UFC fight. For some reason Brock Lesnar is one of those guys that makes you feel that you can’t miss a UFC fight of his. I’m sure a lot of UFC fans feel the same way even if they don’t like him that much, that’s how much of a draw he is to the company.

I couldn’t resist this ppv ’cause I’m interested in seeing Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt since now this fight is the main event. This fight got moved to the main even ’cause Jon “Bone” Jones just got in trouble.

Lesnar vs. Hunt is an interesting fight ’cause you never know who’s gonna win this one. After doing a little research on Mark Hunt, I’ve heard his punches are really nasty. Would Brock Lesnar be able to avoid his hard punches? We’ll see. I predict that Brock Lesnar will lose to Mark Hunt due to one of his hard punches but we’ll see. Could Brock actually beat him? That’s why I want to watch this fight ’cause I want to see if Brock will be able to beat him or not.

Lesnar needs to realize that this isn’t WWE and I think he’ll find out that later tonight.

I’m also looking forward to Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes ’cause I like women fighting.

Hope it’ll be a good ppv. I’m still a fan of UFC and MMA.
