August 26th…McGregor has edge?

Floyd “Money” Mayweather has spoken.  In an interview with ESPN’s Stephen Smith, he concedes that Conor McGregor has some advantages over him “on paper.”

Specifically, he admits some of McGregor’s strengths, “a lot younger…taller, longer reach, he’s a bigger man…”


August 26th is approaching fast.  Soon we shall see the end of this spectacle.  We will see if maybe these strengths will be enough for McGregor to top Mayweather.  It is interesting that Smith brings up the thought that McGregor doesn’t deserve to be in the ring with Mayweather.  It must be lost on him that the underlying reason that we are seeing this fight to fruition is the fact that it will generate a lot of wealth for the two fighters and their promoters.  At this point I do not believe that either fighter cares too much about who deserves what, their legacies, or this fight’s impact on them…probably none whatsoever.

Will we have a return to some normalcy for the UFC?  How about McGregor actually defending his UFC title?  Perhaps this is his swan song, and he will not return to the octagon…  Without any main UFC events until September it is easy to see where the focus is for the organization.  McGregor had better be laughing all the way to the bank…I would be.

Stay classy fellas…

Things turned even further south at the Brooklyn stop.  I will shamelessly admit that I find this all very entertaining.  Both fighters are picking at one another to inflame the media as well as each other.  From McGregor being racist to Mayweather wearing the Irish flag.  I suppose that if McGregor can say he is “black from the bellybutton down,” Mayweather should say that he is “Black Irish.” Stay classy fellas.

Demian Maia Seminar

Back in September I got the opportunity to attend a seminar conducted in KC by UFC Middleweight and multi-time BJJ world champion, Demian Maia. The seminar was simply awesome! Although the techniques are far too numerous to try to recall on this post I would say that the highlight of the seminar for me was his emphasis on jiu jitsu as a self defense art. I haven’t seen this in other BJJ schools like I have seen at the Gracie Academy, so it was great to hear it being emphasized from someone outside of the GJJ Academy lineage. If he comes back…I’ll definitely try my best to attend. Cheers…
