“I ain’t afraid to wrestle with no man” – Kevin Lee on Khabib

afraid-wrestle-man-kevin-lee-khabib

UFC lightweights are out there and are legitimately afraid of Khabib Nurmagomedov. Why shouldn’t they be? The dude is terrifying. However, it’s mainly the wrestling of Khabib that strikes fear in the hearts of the division. UFC lightweight, Kevin Lee, says that Khabib has nothing that he hasn’t seen before and he sees holes in Khabib’s game.

However, everyone says that about Khabib until they are in the cage with him getting mauled like a bear on a bunny. Lee needs to not be thinking too far ahead, as he’s facing Al Iaquinta this weekend. Al already beat Lee in 2014 so Lee has an uphill battle from the get-go. The last thing he should be talking about is what’s next.

Not a fan of Kevin Lee? Watch him bungee jump and fall in love with him

kevin-lee-bungee-jump

Kevin Lee, you are more of a man than I am. You will never find me standing up high and bungee jumping off of a tall tower. Lee is in Singapore for the UFC Fight Night this weekend and the UFC set him up for a little adventure time.

Lee goes through all the ranges of emotions that someone who has a great fear would go through. Excited, scared, nervous, regret, and terrified; Lee went through all of them. However, Kevin Lee manned the hell up and did it. He did his bungee jump like a champ.

He goes on to talk about the difference between the feeling of anticipation before a fight compared to this. The is a great video that really shows Lee’s ‘human’ side.

He also screams like a little girl.

Kevin Lee on Conor and the bus, “There might have been some partaking”

lee-conor-bus-partaking

Kevin Lee is out here looking like a major league pitcher, throwing out hand signals and insinuations. He didn’t directly say that Conor Mcgregor was doing cocaine, however, he made a gesture towards his nose and said Conor may have been ‘partaking’.

Lee is from Detroit and one thing that people from Detroit do is talk about how rough it is out there. He relates his own tough upbringing to Conor’s and says that there is a difference. Conor grew up poor but from a working-class family. Like Lee said, it’s just different in Detroit.

Lee questions this gangster side of McGregor and says that usually, people try to get far away from that life. Yet, McGregor seems to be going backwards. Lee thinks it’s either the money or the ‘partaking’ that has him ‘wild n out’.

Regardless, Lee doesn’t care about McGregor. He will, however, keep bringing his name up to keep his own name relevant.

MMAnimation: Tiramisu is the latest and greatest MMA equalizer

tiramisu-latest-greatest-mma-equalizer

Tiramisu has been the trend in the UFC lately. Both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee talked about how great they felt during fight week and both struggled mightily to make weight. They said that Tiramisu was in their diet close to weigh-ins and making weight would be easy. However, as history has shown us, it was anything but.

It could be argued that the dessert has wins over more UFC fighters than USADA. Just kidding, no one is even close to them.

Our man Mojahed Fudailat is back with the MMA animation and once again, he makes us laugh. On a personal note, I’m glad to see Dana White is back to his old Kenny McCormick ways of dying in every episode.

Enjoy.

UFC 216 Embedded Ep. 1 – Calm Before the Storm

UFC 216 Embedded

The UFC has rolled out there awesome series Embedded for UFC 216.

This episode opens and we see Tony Ferguson at the ocean, doing some light punching drills. He’s happy to be on the beach, as he’s been at elevation training for this camp and has missed the views. He talks about how he’s training and fighting for his son, his family and so they will have a better life. Tony’s coach says that Lee is talented, but the experience is a motherf*cker, he gonna learn.

Next, we’re taken to the residence of Kevin Lee. He’s at his home getting a haircut. He opens by saying, “Tony can fight, he says he’s been in the mountains running with coyotes. All that means is he’ll take a long ass whopping.  We then are taken to Las Vegas Dream Racing and Lee talks about the Audi A-8 and says that’s next. He just bought a new house, and that car is next. He takes a little shot at Conor McGregor saying, ‘My shit ain’t going to be rented either, I won’t be out in a rented green Lambo.”

After that, we are transported to Ray Borg’s house which appears to be a double wide in Albukerke, NM.  You can definitely see the progression as fighters win bigger fights and start earning more money. Ray’s a young fighter and lives modestly. He talks about how he and his wife are expecting a baby. Ray said he’s ready because he’s helped raise kids, and changed diapers growing up. Borg says he’s excited.

Next, we jump to Kirkland, WA and AMC Pankration gym where Demetrious Johnson trains with Matt Hume.  Matt talks about the fight and says he expects Johnson to stop Borg and set the new all-time record. Johnson is seen driving home and he’s talking about how this fight is super important to him. He says the record is what it’s about but he needs to win all his fights or his paycheck will suffer.
