Cerrone Denies Recent Rumours

The upcoming bout against Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor has been the priority story for the Ultimate Fighting Championship this month. The most recent rumour regarding this fight is that the Cowboy has been paid a significant figure to take a dive against McGregor. This rumour comes after Cerrone will receive his highest payday to date over a 13-year career. However, the contestant for the welterweight division has denied these rumours extensively.

Most analysts and fanatics have taken the side of Donald Cerrone, believing that he won’t take a dive in the fight. Cerrone has consistently trained and fought for thirteen years, with McGregor not winning any combat sporting event since 2016 against Eddie Alvarez. Since that win, he has experienced losses against Floyd Mayweather Junior and Khabib. The Cowboy straightforwardly losing to McGregor would be suggestive of a five and mark would see Dana White lose millions of fans worldwide. The potential backlash against the UFC isn’t worth the associated cost of pleasing Conor McGregor, who was barely accepted back into the fighting competition

Dana White didn’t want Conor McGregor returning to the UFC, which came after he had assaulted an elderly gentleman while intoxicated. Since 2016, McGregor has also been investigated for two instances of sexual assault. The allegations and drama surrounding McGregor could’ve been horrendous for the UFC if he returned. However, after fans pleaded for his return, McGregor was allowed back into the fighting competition for the associated profits he would bring to Dana White.

Donald Cerrone Opens Up

The Cowboy hasn’t taken these rumours lightly, with him coming out to reporters and defending himself extensively. Cerrone mentioned that not only will he defeat the Irishman and rest claim to his career, but he will also defeat Khabib Nurmagomedov for the championship title in 2020. This American MMA Fighter guaranteed that he would do everything in his power to ensure that McGregor won’t get a rematch with Khabib. The Cowboy even said that he wouldn’t listen to the UFC if they told him to throw the fight.

The Cowboy comments noted that he wouldn’t bow down from any variation of this fight and that all the rumours are bullshit. Cerrone also mentioned that no paycheque could force him to take a dive against any fighter, that he would never be able to look into the mirror going forward. Donald Cerrone finished his comments by saying he’d rather fight for free than take a dive against that pathetic Irishman, which wouldn’t set McGregor off for this upcoming fight.

Khabib Taking on Tony Ferguson

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has received a confirmation on one of the most desired fights in recent history. It was announced that the UFC would hold a Pay-Per-View event in Brooklyn, New York on April 18th. This PPV will see Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson battle it out for championship victory. The confirmation of the fight was forced onto Dana White when multiple sources close to the UFC informed ESPN that the fight is currently in development. Afterwards, an initial report was made on Monday, November 26th, by the UFC on ESPN.

During this Press Conference, Dana White confirmed that these two prized fighters would take to the ring in April. However, he noted that negotiations for payment are still ongoing. Though this means that both athletes haven’t officially agreed to the fight, Dana White has forced them into a decision by making it a public announcement.

Logan Paul Loses Boxing Match

After months of advertisements and fight promotions campaigns, the Logan Paul and KSI Boxing Match finally went underway. Televised on SkySports and DZVN, the YouTube Stars entered the boxing ring and for Logan Paul, the ensuing bout ended with a dramatic loss. These two superstar men met on Saturday Night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in front of a sold-out crowd. Their first boxing match was in 2018, one that ended in a split decision after six rounds. However, this wasn’t the case for their second fight as KSI was declared the victory winner after the referee, Jack Reiss, gave Logan Paul a two-point deduction. This deduction was accessed for Logan Paul illegally hitting KSI while holding him in Round Four.

Logan Paul took his left arm and held KSI’s head in an unmovable position, immediately throwing punches afterwards with his right fist. Logan Paul also hit him a final time with a right hook when KSI was on his knee, which led to the fight being broken up by refs. Ultimately the refs choose to accept this punch but gave Logan the deduction of two points. Two of the three judges rooted for KSI, with the third in favour of Logan Paul’s tactics.

Before this event took place, both boxers spent a great deal of time training with some of the greatest fighters alive today. Both personalities took six months to work out, train extensively, heal their body and repeat the process. Furthermore, the two boys who are known for partying also had to complete drug tests and screenings weekly from the California State Athletic Commission. This was because both at the time were undercard fighters who required licenses before the event transpired. Shockingly, both Logan Paul and KSI shook hands before embracing after the fight completed. Most wouldn’t have expected this sportsmanship out of Logan Paul, who is known for his horrible acts of the past.

Ultimately, Logan Paul received backlash from the media and celebrities. His channel was almost removed from YouTube when 500+ Thousand individuals signed a petition to have it terminated. He will forever be known for his insensitivity towards suicide victims.

Additional instances of controversy for this foolish young man include illegally taking a forklift in a Japanese fish market, fighting with individuals half-naked on the streets and hitting nearby citizens with a giant ball. Many would state that they’re thrilled that Logan Paul lost the fight and got beat up twice by KSI.

Cage Fighting

Cage Fighting

Cage fighting is a combination of martial arts and street fighting fought in an octagonal, fenced ring. The object is to subdue or knock out your opponent by any means. This sport, although not recognised by the International Olympics Committee, is stealing popularity from the likes of boxing and WWE wrestling. To become champions fighters must compete against others of the same weight class, as often as possible, to build up points.

The fight lasts 3 or 5 rounds of 5 minutes each and ref joins the fighters in the cage. A combination of different martial skills is employed such as wrestling, boxing, judo, karate, taekwondo and kickboxing. A combatant is a winner if the opponent is either knocked out or taps out. If a fight reaches the end of the designated rounds without a looser, the winner will be judged by the most number of mighty blows and takedowns. Cage fighting is the most demanding fight of our times and fitness is paramount.

This style of fighting is as violent as a fight can be without the use of weapons and is fought by two combatants at the peak of physical fitness and can end in serious injuries or even death. Broken limbs are not unheard of, and damaged facial features with copious blood are often the result of the severity of the fighting style. Broken necks and brain damage are always a possibility.

Female Fighters

More and more women are entering the cage, with some looking for fame and fortune and some just looking to provide for their families, and some just for the fun of it! They all have one thing in common: they don’t care what they look like after the fight! Others who train want to learn how to defend themselves, but there is the downside to this type of fighting. Katy Collins, the Red Dragon, died at the age of 32 from a brain aneurysm. A mother of two young boys from the USA she had been fighting for three years. Was it worth it?

Cage Fighting Kids

Some kids, as young as four, have started training in the martial arts. Although competition for kids is banned in the USA, training is above board. Some of these youngsters start MMA training as a defence against playground bullies. Hopefully, they don’t become the bullies themselves! Their self-esteem and confidence soar as they learn to defend themselves. Fighting in the cage is carefully monitored, and the kids are not expected to go so far as tapping out, and potentially dangerous moves and holds are nipped in the bud. Very few injuries have been reported, and combatants are required to wear helmets, gloves and shin guards. Hopefully, these young fighters will grow up to be MMA fighters, but at least they will leave the cage confident and able to defend themselves.
