San Antonio, TX – UFC Fight Night 44 is in the books. It was a decent event with good matches. After the main match between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens, UFC reporter Heidi had a chance to speak with the loser, Jeremy Stephens. Here are some of her rather odd questions.
“How did it feel when you got hit in the face repeatedly?”
“Does it hurt to get kneed in the stomach?”
“What could you have done to get hit less?”
“That very large bump on your face, is it uncomfortable?”
“You got kicked in the leg a bunch of times, why?”
Was it the punch straight to the nose or the liver that hurt the worst?
Why are you crying?
You are sweating. Was it a hard match?
Why didn’t you just get up at the end of the match there? Were you hurt?
Without these hard hitting questions there is no way of getting to know what it’s actually like being a ufc fighter. We are glad this reporter asked the most important question in order to get a better understanding of the sport.
Silva and Weidman faced off yesterday at the UFC 162 weigh-ins. This time they literally went chin-to-chin or lips to lips.
Things certainly have changed since I started watching UFC. Before, the two men would either A. Be respectful, shake each others hands like grown ass mature men would do, complete a simple stare down for the cameras and go on their merry way or B. Hype the fight up a bit and put their hands in the other opponents face to get the crowd going. Today, there is man lip on man lip action going on and I don’t like it.
UFC pre-fight weigh-ins is not the place to display ghay tendencies. I’ve been seeing it more and more. Am I going to see some butt slappin’ next? Is the guy going to turn around to leave the weigh-ins and the other fighter starts slapping his ass? Are the fighters going to hug and then help each other get their clothes back on after standoff? Is that next? Are they just going to full out have butt sex right there on the stage? Where does it end?
I think it’s time for Dana White to step in here and set these fighters straight. Get it? I think he should call a meeting and let them know that they need to keep their ghay tendencies to a minimum during UFC weigh-ins. After the weigh-ins it’s game on. They can do as much butt slappin, lip mangling, or butt humping as they wish as long as its backstage and not in front of the masses. Nobody wants to see that.
UFC 155 just wasn’t the same without the great Mike Goldberg commentating alongside Joe Rogan this weekend. Apparently he had to take sometime off and rest at home due to an illness.The UFC is not sure when Mike Goldberg will return so Jon Anik will be filling in for him for the foreseeable future.
Dana White stated..
“Goldie’s out for a while and I don’t know when he’ll be back,”
Hopefully it’s nothing too serious and Mike Goldberg can return as quick as possible.
