UFC 228 Primer: Who Do You Want to Lose More – Woodley or Till?

Sometimes you’re offered a plate of dirt and a bowl of mud and you’re forced to choose one of them to eat. That’s certainly the case with UFC 228‘s main event, which pits welterweight champ Tyron Woodley against middleweight Darren Till.

And I say middleweight because Till has trouble making weight. That’s right, the Brit has failed to make the 170-pound cutoff twice in his UFC career, including the bout that earned him this title shot – a main event scrap against Stephen Thompson.

Woodley, meanwhile, has had flashes of excitement in his career, but he’s gotten so terrified of losing that he fights solely to not lose. Which sucks. And which gives us such stellar “non-fight” performances like what we saw against Thompson twice, Demian Maia, and Kelvin Gastelum.

Sure, both men have earned their status as champ and challenger. Woodley beat an awful lot of dudes to get that belt, although “beat” might be a charitable way of describing it. Till, of course, beat some quality opponents, too. There’s Thompson, and there’s also Donald Cerrone on that list.

(Worth noting: Cerrone has fought at lightweight a lot, so as welterweights go, he was always pretty small… which made him easy pickings for the overweight Till.)

So. Dirt and mud. That’s what we’re getting. Which flips the usual equation of tuning-in-to-see-your-hero-win into one all about hoping both men could lose (and lose their belts, and lose their jobs, and lose the real estate they take up in your fandom).

Who do you want to see lose more? The chubby bastard Till, who often brags how he’s bigger than opponents? Oh, hey, here’s a video of his unfair size advantage in action.

Or do you want to see Woodley lose, who is the most boring-est fighter since… since… I don’t know. He’s freakin’ boring though. And he thinks he’s amazing, so don’t expect him to change anytime soon.

Enjoy your dirt and mud, folks.

Midnight Mania! Non-MMA fighters You Wouldn’t Want to Fight

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

It’s a slow news night, and Jon Bois and Spencer Hall co-authored a piece called “A Semi-Definitive List of People We Do Not Want to Fight” that got me thinking, who would I NOT want to tangle with, that isn’t a professional mixed martial artist? (I want to fight exactly 0 of those, except for CM Punk. I could take CM Punk). Alexander Karelin, the man so terrifying his nickname was “The Experiment” was a good one. Sean Hannity was good because losing to him would be humiliating, but bad because I would still want to punch his face as hard as possible, for altruistic reasons.

I’m going to let you weigh in on the comments. Here are a couple people I wouldn’t want to fight.

Marcus Luttrell

Not only a former Navy Seal who has actually killed many people, Luttrell had the courage to wear this. That is a man you do not want to fight. Ever. Under any circumstances.

Michael B Jordan

The guy is an actor, so it would be humiliating to get knocked out by him, but he’s also gotten pretty swole and has been training a lot of boxing, so he might actually be able to throw hands. I don’t want to be the guy in the TMZ video who found out. I mean, come on. You don’t want to get knocked out by this guy. Your girl would leave you. Your friends would abandon you. Your dog would look at you with soulful pity.

Bumpy Johnson swag…

The Mountain

He’s the world’s strongest man, and I’m about McGregor’s size. It wouldn’t go well for McGregor in a real fight, and it definitely would go even worse for me, especially as I am not skilled with a poisoned spear.

Sean Bean

Sean Bean was stabbed for real in a London bar fight after someone made a lewd comment about his date. He opted not to go to the hospital and instead ordered another drink. I wouldn’t want to fight him because he seems like a genuinely good guy, but also he’s tough as nails.

He also used his own meme for his birthday

Thanks for all the lovely messages
