YOU BLEW IT UP! AH, DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!
The UFC simply cannot help itself. Wait. Hold on. First, WWE Legend, Jim Ross:
Now then, yes. The UFC cannot help itself. The company, through Dana White, announced that there would be another – oh yes – INTERIM TITLE! Fuck. Me. This is glorious news.
What belt would it be? Why, the UFC Lightweight Championship. The one that is currently held by Conor McGregor. The one that they already tried to create an interim belt for.
In a way, this is an Interim Title for an Interim Title for a Championship that was only won last November and which champion is … boxing. Dammit, man, if Conor beats Mayweather (stop laughing)(ok, continue) then we can probably add in some bullshit boxing belts as well.
FUCK! This is so hilariously awesome. I feel broken by the universe with this.
What? Oh. Shit. Right. The guys who will be fighting for the interim title of the lightweights? Naturally, you get the two top guys in the class, or maybe a giant name or two. The UFC went out and got Tony Ferguson. Cool. He’s awesome and worthy.
They also got … Kevin Lee.
Bet you didn’t see that one coming.
Fine. Maybe you did, on account if the big picture up top. Damn editors and their photo comments. Lee is very good and kinda choked out Michael Chiesa a few months back, his fifth straight win. He’s been in the UFC for some time but was here the radar until recently. His social media feud with Chiesa did a lot to raise his profile.
Still weird that he might fight Conor McGregor.
“No word” on if this will headline the October, UFC 216 card, coming from Las Vegas. One can only hope.
