Mayweather Wins again, Beats Maidana…
No, that’s not a accidental repeated post, the rematch was just as I predicted, Mayweather schools Maidana again. If someone is going to beat Mayweather, they are definitely not going to do it in a rematch. If an aggressive fighter is going to charge Mayweather, he needs to do it in the first fight. By the time the rematch comes around Mayweather has learned the other fighters style and built a defense that is much less likely to be penetrated.

Happy 41st Birthday Hip Hop!
41 years ago today, an event happened at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx that has gone on to shape the world as we know it. Clive Campbell aka Kool Herc DJ’d a back to school party for his sister Cindy, where he demonstrated his new Merry Go Round technique, thus laying the very foundation of Hip Hop, quickly followed by emceeing, B-Boying and graffiti to bring together what are known as the 4 elements, and thus creating not just a musical style but a entire culture that has impacted the world at a societal level.
I was into other music before discovering Hip Hop in 1985, but it is one that has had the longest lasting impact on my life. I started out as a B-Boy and Graf Artist, but rapidly accelerated into incorporating all elements, DJing, MCing, and even occasionally beat-boxing. I feel that once you fully embrace the sub-culture and i I can’t see that changing any time soon.
So I raise a glass to the originators, pioneers, and global exponents of Hip Hop in all its forms old and new. I wasn’t born yet when the first party was getting going, thus a tad young too attend, and on the wrong side of the country too. But I’ve made it over to NYC a few times on a pilgrimage to take in the landmarks, which I highly recommend.
Happy Birthday Hip Hop!

UFC 175 Rousey fits in a gif
It’s amazing to see a whole UFC fight fit into a animated GIF, but what’s even more amazing is how much she dominated this BJJ specialist. I really want to see her fight Cyborg, not because it will be a good fight, but I think Cyborg is the only one other than Meisha Tate can give Rousey an actual fight at this point. I really was hoping to see Mayweather, Silva, Rousey and even a small chance of Broner retiring undefeated but now it looks like it will just be Rousey and Mayweather. I really respect and appreciate how much Rousey respects Mayweather and how she see’s past the showmanship and appreciates the hard work.

Mayweather wins again, beats Maidana…
I know that picture isn’t from the fight, but it summarizes what’s so great about Mayweather. (updated with pics from fight) Also I want to say that the judges did a pretty good job. You have to realize that you are somewhat biased when it comes to judging Mayweather fights. We are so used to him dominating the center of the ring, that we give the other fighter a pass when it comes to them losing the center of the ring battle, but that is the most important part of the fight. Who controls the center of the ring? Mayweather, hands down, every time. So when Maidana runs in like a bull and pushes him to the ropes and throws a shit load of sloppy punches, people act like he won the round. I had Mayweather barely losing just two rounds, and that was more about Mayweather taking his time, establishing his defense, and not throwing enough punches. And even those two rounds are debatable, because judges don’t give points for that kind of technique, but that is an integral part of him winning the fight.
I really think that boxing and MMA needs to take a look at how they judge fights and establish a worldwide standard that boxers and trainers agree with. I personally don’t think Maidana is a big enough sell to get a rematch. The guy hasn’t even bothered to learn English, if he did, I really think it would improve his purse and his marketability. I understand having pride about your culture, but English is the best and most efficient language, and you’ll make more money.
