It has been a horrible week for the fight sports activities press convention group.
First, AEW’s “All Out” post-event scrum might have imploded the corporate, and Thursday’s UFC 279 pre-fight press convention ended earlier than it even started as a result of dudes are speaking smack and need beat the piss out of somebody.
I kinda like it?
While you stroll right into a pay-per-view (PPV) when there aren’t any title fights and all you’ve got are two names on the high of the cardboard — one in all whom is moments away from a star flip towards a legend and the opposite being the legend who has actually stated he stopped caring about this battle in the midst of coaching camp — it feels a little bit a fait accompli.
Then you’ve got an excellent quaint press convention riot.
That is what saved UFC 223, as everybody and their aunt had been unable to battle Khabib Nurmagomedov, as Conor McGregor flew throughout the Atlantic to begin some s—t with Khabib for a slight towards his teammate, Artem Lobov.
It bought the folks going, it made a card that was good practically an all-timer for the truth that we could not cease speaking about it.
How do you throw a hand truck? Truthfully.
UFC 279, which takes place tonight (Sat., Sept. 10, 2022) inside T-Cellular Area in Las Vegas, Nevada, was constructed for individuals who love violence for the sake of violence, the bloody pageantry that this sport was constructed on three many years in the past.
Two robust dudes with one thing (or in Nate Diaz’ case, nothing) to show and making an attempt to pummel one another for money cash.
