Jackie Moon Presents: The Combat Sports (WWE/MMA) Thread of Excellence

Recommended Posts

I think Conor is 100% retiring - not saying he wont be back - but this isn't a $ or power dispute. He was close to a situation in Ireland where a fighter died last week, that is a fucking reality check.

 

You made over 10 million dollars, you're a national hero... and you see a situation where a person in your sport loses their life... and that can happen to anyone, at anytime.

This is fascinating.... I cannot believe this is over a press conference; 

 

Conor McGregor via FB

 


I am just trying to do my job and fight here. 
I am paid to fight. I am not yet paid to promote.
I have become lost in the game of promotion and forgot about the art of fighting. 
There comes a time when you need to stop handing out flyers and get back to the damn shop.
50 world tours, 200 press conferences, 1 million interviews, 2 million photo shoots, and at the end of it all I'm left looking down the barrel of a lens, staring defeat in the face, thinking of nothing but my incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this. 
Nothing else was going through my mind. 
It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a fuck morning show did not get me this life. 
Talking to some lady that deep down doesn't give a fuck about what I'm doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I'm cool with that too, I've been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
I'm coming for my revenge here. 
I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep. 
With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight. 
I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
But it was denied. 
There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me. 
So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them. 
And all with one tweet.
Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good. 
I must isolate myself now.
I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time. 
I can not dance for you this time.
It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I've danced us all the way here. 
Nate's little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it. 
He came in with no shit to do that last one. I'd already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
Maybe I'll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
I'm doing what I need for me now. 
It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way. 
I feel the $400million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway. 
I am still ready to go for UFC 200. 
I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don't know what to say. 
For the record also - 
For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations - 
I AM NOT RETIRED.

After reading Connor McGregor post how do you disagree with him he is 100 percent right.

I don't disagree, I think he did make a miscalculation though - he has done the company a ton of favours over the past few years - not so much favours, but i mean he went above and beyond. He did more promotion and made more money than anybody has before. He is a star like no other. 

 

When he took a loss, refocused, and wanted to skip a press conference, I think he believed he had earned a certain amount of special treatment, he did all those favours for the UFC, now they could return the favour. 

 

One thing i've certainly learned in the business world - there favours do not really happen. And when they do, there is something hidden between the lines. 

 

I think Conor was shocked they were going to make him go to the presser, so he said 'alright, i'm retiring, fuck yall' - expecting them to cave. Then Dana goes on TV and announces they've pulled Conor from UFC 200 - and conor goes off on FB - now we are in a full blown pissing contest. 

 

This is probably more entertaining than UFC 200 will ever be.

Jackie Moon do you think this might all be a work ( Con) ?

I mean Dana White is the closest thing i have ever seen to Vince McMahon and ufc 200 was not a stacked card no Rousey , Jones, Lesnar who were the ufc biggist draws.

Smells fishy.

It's snapchat - you can put the face of any photo on your head - the above are before / after photos of Rory MacDonald UFC 189.

 

Earlier today I made a series of videos, Hitler and Queen Elizabeth talking shit to each other. It was pretty dope.

The UFC 198 main event was amazing on so many levels - Werdum (pre-198 arguably the greatest heavyweight of all time) versus Stipe (a nearly-pro baseball player ,current firefighter, also from Cleveland, worth mentioning), and Werdum totally fucked up. Well, he got hit;

 

He got hit, and then he started chasing Stipe like he wanted to get it back,

 

Stipe cut an angle and totally erased the last 3 minutes of Werdums life.

 

So good! Stipe is a great dude - so happy for him. I don't think Werdum really did anything "wrong" - he was just fucked up, so he rushed, and he got further fucked up.

Wow, Cody Rhodes lives in a sad world of denial and delusion.  That dramatic letter he wrote.. it's like, I don't think it's dawned on him that he doesn't quite have the charisma it takes to be the champ.  Sorry bro, your name is Cody, you were always destined to be the less successful little shit spawn of your father.  Should've chosen a different profession.  You had your shot.

It's a sad state of affairs when wrestlers are giving up on something they've devoted their lives to, or pursuing other interests, treating wrestling as a part-time gig, because it's become sterile and they have no creative input.
