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.

Joe Rogan Defends Tony Ferguson

There are multiple individuals connected to the UFC that believe Dana White is writing off Tony Ferguson. The UFC President has expressed his desire to see a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, with the middle eastern champion himself declining this matchup publicly. The latest individual to believe this fight isn’t going to happen is Joe Rogan, one of the most infamous figures in UFC. Rogan believes that Tony Ferguson has the skillsets required to dominate over Khabib, which would make him the 1st individual to dominate over Nurmagomedov. It should be noted that Tony Ferguson stands as the Number 1 Ranked athlete in the Ultimate Fighters Championship. Nobody can deny that “El Cucuy” will be the hardest challenge for “The Eagle” yet.

Rogan Speaks Up

Joe Rogan spoke to loyalist with the Ultimate Fighters Championship under his podcast. Statements regarding that Tony Ferguson is the boogeyman of the UFC couldn’t be more accurate. El Cucuy is secretly terrifying and has been underestimated by all opponents. This man never gets tired in the octagon, regardless of the beatings ensuing. Anybody that has fought Tony Ferguson previously have been hospitalized immediately afterwards. Some individuals call this champion “The Freight Train” because that’s exactly how all his opponents look after being defeated. It should also be noted that Tony Ferguson has the most enormous hands in the UFC, with a significant reach over most competitors. This gives him substantial advantages over opponents and will be challenging for Khabib to overcome.

Rogan mentioned that Tony Ferguson is the most terrifying fighter he’s come across, that everything about his mental and physical warfare isn’t healthy. Eccentric behaviour dominates over his persona in the ring, forcing opponents to make continuous mistakes. Joe noted that this fight will be an epic pay-per-view, but that Dana White shouldn’t immediately set up another bout with Khabib. There’s a substantial chance that Ferguson will win and potentially compete against the Irishman. However, neither the Irishman nor El Cucuy has bad blood between each other. Getting the title shot immediately after beating Donald Cerrone would also be a cop-out from Dana White. McGregor wouldn’t rightfully deserve Ferguson’s championship belt until beating everyone in his desired weight class.

The PPV

Those wanting to witness the incredible battle between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov can watch the two fighters collide at UFC 249. This pay-per-view is slated for April 18th, 2020 and will be located in Brooklyn. It’ll be five rounds at the Barclays Center, with each round being five minutes. It’s expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov will win this battle, with Joe Rogan believing that Tony Ferguson will come out on top. We’d have to agree with that analytic determination.

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

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.

Mike Perry Picks Fight with Hollywood

Mike Perry Picks Fight with Hollywood

Those participating in the Ultimate Fighting Championship often never back down from a fight. Unfortunately, there are cases where certain fighters publicly embarrass themselves by creating media attention for no apparent reason. Most recently this applied to Mike Perry, who has threated Michael Jai White, an actor from Hollywood. This feud began when the UFC fighter viewed YouTube content that revolved around the actor, who provided knowledgeable insight on fighting for Blood & Bone, a film from 2009. This film centred around two actors from the UFC, including Gina Carano and Bob Sapp. Kimbo Slice also played a notable role in the film.

The content on YouTube displayed Michael White badmouthing Kimbo Slice, noting that he couldn’t take constructive criticism. This didn’t fit what Perry deemed respectful, which prompted the fighter to make public comments via social media. He publicly challenged the Hollywood actor, expressing that a bare-knuckle fight in his backyard would be ideal. Mike Perry also testified that Kimbo Slice could destroy Michael White in any scenario. The UFC Legend then expressed that the former MMA teachings undergone by Michael White created an individual who doesn’t know the subject anymore.

Michael White’s Response

Michael White wasn’t impressed with the statements made by Mike Perry via Twitter. The actor immediately responded to the aforementioned tweet, where he expressed that Mike Perry should learn the same MMA he was taught and that his Prison Move Technique would destroy him. White offered to teach the UFC fighter this move, claiming that if he did, Perry wouldn’t be ranked 20th in the UFC. Michael White finished his replying statement by mentioning that a bare-knuckle fight would be welcomed and that Perry is welcome to message him anytime he wants. Since that moment, the UFC Fighter has been silent on his various social media accounts.

It should be noted that Michael White isn’t the standard Hollywood actor, he’s maintained a professional martial artist career since the young age of seven. He’s acquired championship belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Karate. Those techniques he amassed throughout his young adult life allowed him to reach critical success amongst Hollywood Elitist, appearing in notable titles like The Dark Knight. He’s also appeared in Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and Tyson: The Movie. This extends to his role in Blood and Bone.

It’s not surprising that Mike Perry immediately backed down from his public fight. He clearly was trying to garner publicity towards his fighter career, which comes after having lost five of his last several fights. The most recent bout saw him getting knocked out by Geoff Neal. Perry continues to dropdown in the UFC standings and most likely won’t have a career after 2020.

Jafari Vanier on Cerrone vs. McGregor

The excitement towards the upcoming bout of Cerrone Vs. McGregor is growing daily. It’s reached the point where Amazon Prime completed a mini-documentary on the forthcoming match, where the Cowboys head coach spoke about the expectations for this fight. Jafari Vanier noted that their training methods have been kept under wraps and that McGregor has more to worry about than he believes. Being interviewed for the mini-documentary, he clarified that the Cowboy has grater submissions and kicking capabilities than the almighty Notorious. Vanier also expressed how the Cowboy has continually trained for upwards of a decade, with McGregor living a party-ESC lifestyle and only training recently. Subsequently, the differences between fighters will be significant come on the Octagon on December 18th.

Jafari didn’t claim that the Cowboy was undefeatable, with the head coaching noting that they’ve got to worry about the first round and McGregor’s left-hook. The Amazon Prime documentary determined that Conor McGregor continually has energy fade after the first round, with the Cowboy never losing momentum in ten rounds. Vanier clarified that in McGregor’s time away from the UFC, his left-hook has become weaker, and his footwork has drastically decreased. All of these elements combined make Vanier believe that the Cowboy is guaranteed to win this bout.

The Evident Winner

This most likely means that the first round between these athletes will be slow-paced, with Cerrone focusing on the moments when he can strike. The Cowboy will use the fight round to become acquainted with McGregor’s fighting style, forcing changes in his footwork to compete against Conor. The priority is to keep clear of the left-hand and wear McGregor out within the first two rounds. It should be noted that Donald Cerrone has had a 50-fight career, where he has lost several times. When it applies to Conor McGregor, he’s maintained twenty-one professional fights and won nineteen. However, it’s been four years since McGregor entered the octagon, which will put him at a significant disadvantage.

It’s become apparent after the Amazon Prime Mini-Documentary Series that Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone will win his upcoming bout. The differences between Cerrone and McGregor are drastic, which leads analysts to believe that Conor will lose by the third round. Those wanting to watch this bout can order the UFC 246 Pay-Per-View on January 18th, which will be held in Las Vegas. This will most likely be the highest-watched PPV in 2020, with the UFC earning hundreds of millions in the process.
