I am getting so tired of these combat sport participants running track during matches. Floyd Mayweather created this monster in boxing and now it has carried over into the UFC. I had almost given up on boxing after watching pay-per-view after pay-per-view of Floyd Mayweather running from opponent after opponent and getting a win each time. Now it has carried over into the UFC. I watched joanna jedrzejczyk run from Jessica Andrade and scared to engage. Out of her terrible performance she got the win and praises fromDana White. I have vowed that fighters who perform in this manner will never get my dollars for pay-per-views. Now today I got to see Alexander Gustafsson run (literally) around the cage from Glover Teixeira. Luckily he got the knockout but still a majority of the fight he was scared to engage. If these type of performances continue to not only be allowed but also praised, combat sports are in danger.
Alcohol and cage fighters, a recipe for disaster.
Well working through the TUF seasons. I was not impressed with TUF Season 2 and I feel like Rashad Evans has not reached his full potential. Michael Bisping is on TUF Season 3 and is the current champ for his weight class. I am hoping this season will be impressive, plus I am a Matt Hamil fan. I love the UFC and hope it doesn’t get commercialized like boxing but Conor McGregor is killing the sport for me.
I love boxing. I have always loved boxing but I miss watching great fights for free. I would really like to view the Mayweather fight (especially knowing his plan to retire). However, I refuse to pay $65 to see Mayweather out smart (not out box) another fighter. He avoids being punched throughout the duration of his fights and then claims to be the best ever (TBE). He may have the record but he cannot compare himself to Rocky Marciano. Rocky got in the ring and retired undefeated while welcoming a brawl every step of the way. I respect Mayweather’s hustle but he has truly diminished boxing and its quality. His exit will be a welcomed change to me and I look forward to watching up and coming boxers. Boxers that are hungry and have the all or nothing attitude in the ring. Ones that come in and leave it all in the ring instead of looking like a track star. I am routing for Berto but in my heart I know the complex way that Floyd runs laps around the ring while gaining points through nothing less jabs will be hard to overcome. All this to say “Bye Floyd”!!!
