Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Though he appears largely unbothered by it, Charles Oliveira simply cannot escape his prior name. “Do Bronx” has now gained 11 in a row, conquering significant adversity in his previous 3 bouts to end major-notch opposition. In spite of the recurring demonstrates of resilience, the “quitter” label is tough to shake, largely simply because Oliveira did undergo a number of stoppage losses before in his job.
Justin Gaethje hammered that angle in particular challenging in the lead up to his title bout versus the Brazilian. Gaethje prides himself on his potential to thrive in deep waters and drive his opponents to crumble, and he predicted as substantially reverse the former winner. Instead, it was Oliveira who rallied through early adversity and compelled Gaethje to submit to a deep rear naked choke.
Now, I’m not implying that tapping to an clearly locked in choke means that a fighter is a quitter, but followers online had been rapid to see the irony. When Conor McGregor noticed a person these meme, he couldn’t aid but acquire a shot at Gaethje, as the two have prior beef. Suffice to say, the Irish athlete was not impressed.
“This absolute clown!” McGregor commented. “The aul [sic] fake to be asleep immediately after he tapped as nicely lol. Jackass”
There is discussion all over McGregor fighting just about just about every prime fighter at each 155- and 170-kilos, but would everyone like to see “Notorious” throw down vs. “The Spotlight?” Specified Gaethje’s title loss, that scheduling would be a large amount much more acceptable now than in advance of UFC 274.
Julianna Pena vs. Amanda Nunes appears like it has a date.
Jamahal Hill has usually seemed like an rigorous man in interviews don’t mess with “Sweet Goals!”
A bunch of MMA fighters are likely to begin seeking to jump guard like Oliveira does and get sparked in the procedure. Only when you are THAT excellent do you get to break all the principles!
Side note: DO BRONX IS ILLUMINATED BY GOD!
Frankly, I consider any interaction in between Chuck Liddell and Tony Ferguson would be baffling in 2022.
