Things I Liked and Things I Didn't Like From Mayweather vs Pacquiao

Well fight fans, the “Fight of the Century” has come and go and while the general feeling from the public is that this fight was a dud of the most epic proportions the fact remains that nearly 4 million people ordered the PPV and countless others made an effort to witness this fight.  For all the hype and drama being used to build up this fight, the actual bout was a bit of a let down.  But, to think that Mayweather and Pacquiao would enter into a fight along the likes of Diego Corrales vs Jose Luis Castillo, then you must not be paying attention to the manner in which Floyd Mayweather fights.


"Fight of the Century?"

It’s been dubbed the “Fight of the Century” but while it may be the most lucrative boxing bout in the history one would have to think that more classic affairs such as Chavez vs Whittaker or Ali vs Frazier would carry the prerequisite historical weight for such hyperbole.   Though, make no mistake, the eyes of the world will be upon Las Vegas this Saturday night when Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao meet in a contest years in the making.  For a niche a sport as boxing is these days high profile bouts like this stir a passion in people that cannot be matched by any modern sport; well except maybe soccer.

Arlington’s Xtreme Knockout (XKO) has been an institution in the North Texas MMA scene for over five years.  Boasting the fact that they are the longest running professional MMA organization in North Texas, XKO has long been a fan favorite due in large part to the party atmosphere their shows convey and the exciting fan-friendly match ups that take place in the cage. 


Enough is enough, the UFC needs to punish Jones

Be it far from me to wax poetically on the morality of any individual.  Hell, I’m just as flawed as the next man so for me to cast stones at someone without coming across as a hypocrite would take some pretty significant news.  Which is why upon learning of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ bat-shit insane weekend hit and run I feel confident in this demand; the UFC needs to strip Jones of his title and punish the fighter for these repeated transgressions.
