UFCs ESPN+ 28 Cancels Mass Gathering

Brasilia saw their first Ultimate Fighters Championship event cancelled for spectators following the coronavirus. It’ll be a “Behind-Closed-Doors Event” moving forward, with it still be broadcasted on March 14th through ESPN+. Titled the ESPN+ 28 UFC Event, it’ll be held at the Nielson Nelson Gymnasium in Brazil’s capital. Thousands would’ve gathered to watch their favourite fights compete, but the Brasilia Governor determined that a “Large Gathering Ban” should be declared throughout the city. This decision was made after a confirmed coronavirus outbreak within Brasilia.

The implemented ban has prompted the immediate cancellation of Concerts, Sporting Events, School and Religious Services. Gatherings must be limited to a maximum of one-hundred Brazilians. This means that ESPN+ 28 can allow for roughly eighty VIPS to watch this fight live, with the remaining 16 thousand seats remaining empty. Supporters that purchased tickets will be provided refunds through electronic ticket sellers. Returns won’t be supported in-person, with ticket booths being shut down for the foreseeable future.

The Ultimate Fighting Competition didn’t provide any insight to reporters regarding the fate of this venue, with detailed information having the come from other outlets. This follows after Dana White has publicly expressed his disbelief towards the coronavirus and its rate of spreading. It’s not surprising that Dana White wouldn’t believe scientific records, with this man being a substantial supporter and friend of Donald Trump. Sporting associations have mentioned their disappointment towards the minimal sanitation efforts and closures being enforced by the UFC.

Insiders close with the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Brasilia privately noted to news outlets that Dana White was furious with the announcement that mass gatherings would be cancelled in the capital. Considering that the UFC President cannot outweigh the government’s decision, he was forced to abide by these conditions and provide refunds to consumers. Dana White lost millions in the process.

Additional Cancellations

There have been multiple cancellations for the Ultimate Fighters Championship within Brasilia. The Ceremonial Weigh-In before any title fight was terminated, which extended to the Media Day. Obligations with these fighters require that they compete regardless of global conditions. Sporting analysts suspect that UFC Fighters will begin ignoring contract obligations and remain home in self-isolation. Dana White could be forced in the coming weeks to terminate the UFC until the coronavirus is solved. How he’ll react will be an exciting discussion.

Dana White Close Friends with President Donald Trump

Dana White Close Friends with President Donald Trump

UFC supporters were shocked to learn that Dana White has become good friends with President Donald Trump. When the UFC owner was questioned if he cares about what the fans think of this, Dana White responded in a manner that seems sufficient to a friend of such a narcissistic man. The overwhelming percentage of MMA fans don’t support the ignorant and overwhelmingly racist behaviour of President Trump.

Dana White then extended his comments of resentment with TMZ sports. He mentioned that it doesn’t matter to him what MMA Fans think about this relationship, that something personal like friendship shouldn’t be the defining decision behind their engagement with the UFC. Those that choose not to support Dana White anymore weren’t real fans, to begin with, & the UFC CEO doesn’t want them around anymore.

TMZ Sports then asked Dana White on his position with political campaigning. The UFC leader expressed that he wasn’t campaigning for Donald Trump but had just been invited to visit him during the Colorado event quickly. Dana didn’t have any intentions of speaking to the crowd but felt intrigued at the thought of rallying millions for his long-time friend. The UFC chief executive officer has been friends with Donald Trump long before he ever became president, going back twenty years when the Ultimate Fighters Championship was barely a reality. Dana White has often expressed how Trump assisted with the early growth and development of this fighting competition.

The Backlash

Fighting analysts anticipate that the UFC will see an immediate decline of 35% in viewership numbers following Dana’s statements. America has become a political warfare zone, with citizens either standing on the far-left or the far-right. There isn’t any in-between for the United States of America, with those supporting the benefit of humanity often going against anybody that supports Donald Trump.

Political analysts have often claimed that the current political environment with America is reminiscent of the 1st civil war. Historically the country hasn’t experienced this level of racism since that period. It’s leading some to wonder if a political revolution will unfold in America’s, with Donald Trump proving there won’t be by not being impeached. For those supporting Liberal movements, everything is almost lost.

Derrick Lewis Facing Severe Medical Condition

Shocking news regarding one of the fighters at UFC 247 has been unveiled. Derrick Lewis confirmed that he’s been battling a severe health issue, which was relevant during his fight against Ilir Latifi. Supporters of the “The Black Beast” went to social media to provide their praise towards Derrick Lewis, expressing that his strength is formidable. Having the capability to fight when facing a severe medical issue, only to then win the respective battle is impressive. The last two victorious fights for Derick Lewis, which were back-to-back, saw him facing this unnamed condition.

Reporters interviewed Derrick Lewis after he confirmed the illness via Twitter, asking if he’ll remain a headline fighter going forward. The Black Beast mentioned that he wouldn’t be retiring from the Ultimate Fighting Championship but will undergo multiple visitations with professional doctors. This will ensure that training won’t be depleted for Lewis, with the UFC demanding that those visitations be kept private for security concerns. This confirmation interview noted that medical professionals with the UFC have learned what the condition is and what must be done to solve the particular issue. Unfortunately, it’s a life-or-death medical issue that is severely challenging to overcome. If doctors are unable to provide recovery for Derick Lewis, he will die in a few short years.

The Black Beast mentioned that multiple athletes have suffered and passed away from this condition, which leads sporting analysts to believe that Lewis has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. This disease can formulate regardless of your health and can kill an athlete within a short period. Derrick Lewis fighting shouldn’t be advised by any of the UFC doctors, showing a blatant lack of respect for athletes in the Ultimate Fighting Champion. Dana White has often been questioned on why fighters are brought to near-death for money. Individuals that support Derick Lewis have begun to send their wishes and blessings for his recovery. Losing the Black Beast would be one of the most upsetting and notable deaths in fighting for the last two decades.

Another Incident for Another Fighter

Derrick Lewis wasn’t the only individual that required medical assistance this week. BJ Penn was confirmed to be in a substantial automotive accident last week in Hawaii, which prompted his vehicle to roll over multiple times before coming to a halt. When law enforcement arrived on the scene, he was immediately transported via helicopter to the Hilo Medical Centre. Law enforcement believes that alcohol was relevant to his accident, with blood tests being administered at the medical facility. This could mark the second DUI for BJ Penn, which would place him immediately into jail.

UFC 246 Doctor Receiving Backlash

It’s been two weeks since the fast-paced actions of UFC 246 unfolded in Las Vegas. However, there are still concerns relating to certain fights that took place. This applies to the Maycee Barber and Roxanne Modafferi matchup, which saw Barber take a significant injury to her right knee. It allowed her opponent to thrive after doctors displayed her problems in the Octagon. Maycee Barber believes that her defence capabilities would’ve been better if it weren’t for this doctor. Bookies were anticipating for Barber to win his matchup against Roxanne Modafferi. This is why Maycee Barber is demanding a rematch anywhere at any time. It’ll take upwards of twelve to fifteen months for this fight to become a reality, with Maycee Barber facing substantial recovery time.

This young woman spoke with reporters after her father had been hacked via Twitter. Respective comments relating to Maycee Barber were made, leading everyone to know that this was a genuine hacked account. Bucky Barber was disgusted by the actions taken against upset fans, with thousands losing their significant to small scale wagers on Maycee Barber. She expressed that all efforts were made to disguise the injury to doctors. Unfortunately, video evidence noticed by Joe Rogan showed that Maycee had her knee split backwards.

Doctors were immediately brought in following the 1-Minute Break Period. This doctor made it evident that she was dealing with a significant injury, making it harder for Barber to concentrate the next round. Concentration was the main factor that resulted in Maycee failing in this fight, with Roxanne Modafferi purposely avoiding her opponents right-knee. It was one of those few moments where two female fighters showed genuine sportsmanship. This unnamed doctor has received substantial backlash for his actions, with Dana White confirming that his individual won’t be allowed back to the Octagon.

Roxanne Modafferi

There’s another side to this story, with Roxanne Modafferi being praised for her actions in the Octagon. Roxanne could’ve easily attacked the right-knee of Maycee Barber, which would’ve allowed her to win the 3rd round. Roxanne approached groundwork against Maycee Barber, which would’ve allowed the right-knee to take less damage. All actions displayed by Modafferi showed mutual respect. Roxanne even assisted Barber to her feet after the bout.

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants Floyd Mayweather Jr Fight

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants Floyd Mayweather Jr Fight

UFC champ Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team have begun to prepare for the upcoming title fight in the lightweight division against Tony Ferguson. However, thereafter, all energies will be directed to preparing for a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr, the undefeated boxing champ who took on Connor McGregor and walked away with another win to his record.
It is expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov will enter the ring against Mayweather JR for an 11 round fight using standard boxing rules and one round using standard MMA rules. To date, Floyd Mayweather Jr, or as many call him, “Mr Money” has yet to lose a professional fight in his career. It is a feat not many can lay claim to, and at 42 few others have the ability to enter the ring still and perform at the levels required to be competitive, let alone win fights.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, also undefeated in his MMA career is expected to give Mayweather JR a healthy dose of completion. However, Mayweather is superior in the ring and understands how to go the distance. That was a skill that was lacking in Connor McGregor, and Nurmagomedov will most likely feel the challenges of others who have come before him and may very lose the fight as a result, much like McGregor did.

While speaking on his upcoming fight against Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov addressed questions relating to his desire to fight Mayweather. Commenting, Nurmagomedov stated, “Mayweather has statistics on fights of 50 wins and zero losses, he is the greatest in boxing. He wants to fight with the same champion who did not lose a single fight, Khabib, everything is fine, but now we have Tony Ferguson on the line. We said a long time ago: let us finish with Tony, after that we will work with the team of Ukrainian boxer Vasily Lomachenko for six months, then there will be a boxing fight. We offer any day anywhere, with only one condition – 11 rounds in boxing and one in mixed martial arts.”

If Khabib Nurmagomedov is successful against Ferguson, he will improve his MMA professional record to 29-0, which while impressive, pales in comparison to Mayweather’s 50-0 record. While Mayweather is officially retired, he had agreed to fight the Nurmagomedov, a bout that was cancelled by Dana White, however, the fight is still being discussed with White after Mayweather announced he would come out of retirement to fight in the octagon.
