BEN ASKREN DEFENDS PUNK
Ben Askren once did not like CM Punk (or said something half-way not nice – I’m not going to be bothered to research this shit for a 400 word post). Now, he likes Punk. He talked about why people don’t like Punk:
“Maybe jealousy. I would guess that’s a pretty good answer. He’s been famous, he’s made a lot of money, he’s got a hot wife. There’s a lot of things about him that people would probably be jealous of. I would guess that’s it.”
Honestly, I think it’s mostly because Punk is an ass. Like, he’s almost half-proud of being an ass.
On if Punk will fight or it’s all a publicity stunt (which it isn’t):
“If he’s not gonna fight, he fooled me. I’ve heard that and people have asked me that. He’s in the gym all the time and he’s training all the time, so that would sure be a lot of effort to put into a publicity stunt. You’d think if it was a publicity stunt he’d maybe show up once a week or once a month. For a while before he was injured, he was in there twice a day, every day.”
Then there’s this:
“Success is a skill and the guy has been super successful in another field. So I don’t think there’s any reason why he can’t be successful at this one.”
I don’t know if that’s exactly how it works. I’m sorta kinda maybe yes definitely guessing that Bobby Fischer wouldn’t have been good at MMA.
Conor McGregor Fights a Mountain
This was going around all weekend. It’s fun. It wastes times. Enjoy.
Chad Mendes Talks about Your Nuts
Do you like Conor McGregor? Do you think he’s better than Chad Mendes? Well: Chad knows about your balls…
“The only people that are questioning my conditioning are Conor McGregor nut-hangers, and that’s just because he said that. And dude, look at my fight with Aldo. I fought Aldo, who’s one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. I went five rounds with him and pushed the pace the entire time. When I’m prepared, my cardio is never an issue. It never has been. There’s been one other fight with [Nik] Lentz, where I was sick and fought through it, and still beat that guy, who in my opinion would destroy Conor. So you’re always gonna get those people who are talking shit. And I don’t think my cardio is an issue. It never has been. I took that fight on short-notice, and that’s why it was an issue in that fight. [If] I train a proper fight, I kill Conor. And I don’t think my conditioning is gonna be a problem in this fight. You guys got to see what happened in the first two rounds. I mean, I took him down and was able to land shots at will. I mean, big elbows, big punches. The guy doesn’t have much off his back. And me in shape, I’m able to bounce around on the feet, stay light on my feet, take him down whenever I want. I feel like I could beat that guy just with the cardio alone with my wrestling.”
And that is the state of your balls, in case you were wondering.
Look, guys kicking things:
Seems like a lot of video and shit of guys just kicking pads going around. Why are people impressed? This is like a pitcher throwing in the bullpen or something. They’re basically kicking giant pillows.
First, Jon Jones:
He sure did beat up that bag. He then ran away from it.
Then there’s Urijah Hall, he sure did some good kicking here:
Hey, remember the mountain, from above? Here he is doing boxing!
Eh. That’s enough for today. See y’all real soon. Oh, and make sure to check out Grady’s piece on The Foxcatcher stuff. Good stuff.
