TAKING WHAT FROM WHO
I got to one of those watchwrestling. Whatever sites and they never fail Smith stream the whole time. Only problem no basketball, no football, some boxing, most mma, and mad wrestling like a LOT LOT
The way Usman gets hit I think that would be a tough matchup for him, and Wonderboy isn't just gonna fall in the clinch or back himself up against the cage like Masvidal does.
That's what I'm thinking. He makes it hard to get a hold of him too.
Its really the only fight left at WW that I want to see for him, I like Leon but he plays right into Usman's strenghts with how much he likes to clinch and wrestle. Wonderboy really the only fighter left in that division with the cagecraft and striking to give Usman some issues.
You think he moves up to mw?
Can't see it anytime soon if Izzy remains the champ, I think Whittaker would light Usman up tho
Give Leon Edwards a shot, he deserves it if he beats the next guy. Other than that, there’s like no one I see beating Marty. He’s improving every single fight. GSP is still the mma goat but let Marty dominate the WW division for another 5 years. He will have to be GOAT status. Pretty crazy to me that he’s only 2 wins away now from Silva’s win streak record
Usman made the shyt look like UFC Undisputed 3 the way Burns kept laying out after jabs.
Usman’s Jab got stronger as the fight went on in a way he shows new shyt every fight since before the Woodley fight. I rewatched the fight and Usman in the second round hit Burns so hard with a jab to the body of that Burns jumped up and back into the cage
This sounds silly what I’m about to say but that swinging punch he was throwing HAITIANS call that shyt a Bunyan(if I spelled it right plus you know HAITIANS pride them self’ s on being the closest to Africa especially since they fought and won their freedom early) and Usman was able to hit Burns with it from over top, standing with distance, standing close pushing Burns against the cage, and any time Burns was on his back. Then Usman was able at times to increase the power but keeping a rhythm.
At this point we gotta give Usman the benefit of the doubt until he loses because now Tyron Woodley looking like Pats Cam Newton and they both need to retire.
Usman gets locked in locked in plus he knows like yes he’s getting hit by powerful hits but he’s dealing it back plus more. He got the body to take those kinds of hits and the mind and heart to extend. His giant head with his small neck deflects and absorbs so much very similar to Yoel because his many neck surgeries the less your neck can swing the less your brain can sway in your skull which is where KOs come from the brain hitting the skull. (That’s why some hits behind the ear are illegal but from the jaw down to the chin hits there get the KO’s).
These guys are such high high level at this point the top four in the divisions let’s say that they know how to limit the other person’s power in ways that make other fighters look low IQ from what Stipe did to Francis to last night. More of it will happen as lesser fighters spam the calf kick. Usman vs Burns was so amazing but to be honest some of the fights before 8 and maybe two before ten should’ve been on the PPV card instead of the weird Co-main with the big titty chick.
Like Jon Jones spoiled us by being so great so young but I don’t think you can be a top MMA fighter until you in your late twenties to mid thirties like you need so much high level experience in different things and also you need to learn the cheat codes of your body and be a bit lucky that you are under the radar until a certain point because people worldwide will be studying ways to take you down once you develop a name.
Jon Jones a god to me right he’s just now fighting people his age but they’ve been watching him for years it’s very similar to how Wade is just four years younger than Kobe but watched Kobe for seven years before playing against him in his rookie season in 2003. BJJ is great but if I’m not a great fighter I’m spamming wrestling (in high school I did it a bit they do so much body training without weights through functional shyt that every part of their body is strong like forward full body neck rolls around a room on pads going fast in a line) and Calf kicks. The skill level at the upper upper level is so high that it’s like if you don’t want to be great don’t even put on gloves.
Cody Garbrant was on the Rogan pod this week and he talked about how he was so excited and emotional to fight just like we knew and it lead to him getting the fukk knocked out him multiple times like you can’t be like that and be on top for long like I already stated what it takes to be great the margins are so small anyway. He used the watching a fighter shyt to beat to beat Cruz.
It’s some Highlander shyt but it’s like when you beat a elite talent and take the life out their body of their career like Bonethugs crossroads music video you absorb that energy and it adds to you Usman did it to Woodley and took his legacy then he beat Maga Man Colby and broke that man’s jaw. I type a lot because I love this Jon Jones did it to DC I remember the ESPN shyt Jon told that man who I respect and love to watch that he would kill him with his bare hands. DC replied you think imma just let you kill me ? Jon Jones ain’t never even let DC get the chance to not get killed by Jon Bones Jones.
It’s like the greater Canelo becomes like he might one day fight AJ for a world title it makes Floyd look better tho. Same shyt with Mahomes and Brady in the playoffs Brady won two -zero (AFC championship game and The Super Bowl). THEM THE RULEZ.
If I ran UFC I would stop the rankings at 10 and make the champion and the number one contender fight. After three successful defenses a tournament between the number 2 ranked to the tenth. If a fighter was someone who would’ve been ranked like 11 they on ESPN plus status until the next tournament. Winner of the tournament gets a million and a fight against the champion. While the rest of the top ten get reranked based on how they finish. Have a Superfight maybe every other year if a Champ clears out a division like Jones or Isreal did they get a shot at the Champion at the next weight class with their ranking not on the line.
I suggest everyone watch Usman on Joe Rohan’s pod in a way when Top level fighters go on there they tell you so much about them that you know what to look for like back to Usman he never sits during breaks because his knees are so fukked up from many surgeries on both sides. That’s why Joe mentioned it so much early when Burns was doing up kicks.
I love this shyt I used to say Royce Gracie put us on the moon and Anderson silver on Mars and Jon Jones on Pluto but with everything how it is from both men’s and women’s from 265 pounds down to 110 pounds we just now discovering rocket technology there are so many legends that will be lost to time but their legacies live until there is no one around that didn’t watch.
Think about it we can watch Jack Johnson fights right now on YouTube. If he was alive he would be 143 next month think about that the man who inspired the man who inspired the man who inspired the man and I don’t have to name all the names but I’m sure we envisioned the same men inspired by the first black world heavyweight champion the lineal aspect of that is crazy. 143 years today the Lineal champion is a 6’9 white Gypsy named after the Mike Tyson the man who was the youngest world heavyweight champion ever who was inspired by Ali the GREATEST OF ALL TIME who was inspired by Sugar Ray Robinson and JOE LOUIS THE BROWN BOMBER Who was KNOCKING OUT NAZIS who was inspired by Jack Johnson a 6’0 black man from Galveston the FIRST BLACK HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD IN 1908.
thought i was the only one that thought this. shyt looks weird.
DC congratulating Usman.
DC: "....just know you could never do that shyt to me."
They are brothers out the cage man If you worked for years with someone both making each other better to the point it’s all or nothing and you lose you going to cry because they gave it their all
