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.
I got a much needed promotion this week. I found out on my oldest son’s birthday September 25th. It was like a double celebration. Now last week everything that could go wrong did. In one day my son dislocated his shoulder and my other son got into a fight after school. I was literally leaving work early for one thing when I got a call for the other. With so much going on I worried about starting my new job. You see with my old job I have history and I knew I could take off whenever I needed to when something comes up. Well I didn’t want to come through the door of my new job taking off from work. I also didn’t want to start with anything but a positive attitude. I had to really lean on God and say this will work itself out. My son needing doctors appointments to get better etc. will all work itself out. So I am on day two of my new job saying God is an awesome God and it is working itself out. I have prayed hard for this and it is a wonderful opportunity. Have a blessed day.
