UFC 229 - UFC was the biggest loser

 

Jersey City, NJ - On October 6, 2018, Conor Mcgregor suffered the biggest loss of his MMA career.  After nearly a 2 years layoff, Conor McGregor went into the T-Mobile arena highly over confident that he could beat the 26-0 Russian Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.  

The biggest critic for McGregor was his endurance and his ground game.  Conor did a much better job than most of his predecessors with stopping the take down and minimizing the damage.  Ultimately, Mcgregor gassed out and gave up, submitting to a not-so-chokey choke my Nurmagomedov. 

Khabib's biggest critic was his rudemental standup, which Khabib showed he has overcome.  In the second round, Khabib smashed Conor with an overhand right, that send the Irisman to the ground, crawling back in fear. 

Ultimately, non of the pre-fight or post-fight antics didn't hurt the UFC brand at all.  When Mcgregor through the dolly through the bus, it was used in UFC fight promos.  The same can surely be said for the post fight malee that insued after the fight. 

The biggest loser, however, was not Mcgregor.  It was the UFC.  Mcgregor accounts for 5 of the 6 biggest UFC PPV buys.  He truley was the King of MMA.  His reign, was fueled by his unbeatable streak in the UFC.  The fans and the UFC chalked the Nate Diaz loss as a one off, and excuses about him moving up two weight classes, and fighting on short notice all seemed to flow like McGregor's proper 12 whiskey down the throat of an Irishman.  With Mcgregor getting absoutely mauled by the best UFC figher in the world, the King is no longer the King of MMA.  It is highly unlikely Khabib takes a rematch with Mcgregor, if he isn't the higher paid athlete. 

KEYS to the Indianapolis Colts vs New England Patriots game.

It's already week 5, and the Colts head over to New England for a Thursday night battle against the Colts. Here is how the Colts can beat the Patriots:

1) Stop the Gronk - Yeah you heard it.  The all pro can beat you blocking, receiving, and running over you.  Colts need to double cover him, and force Brady to use his other weapons.  Give him different looks, and always keep a safety over the top. 

2) Stop Edelman and Josh Gorden - He's back, and Brady loves him. Put down the pipe, because Gorden apears to have.  Stop these two threats, and make sure you keep man coverage on them all day. 

3) Luck doesn't have to get lucky - Just throw the ball and let your receivers beat the Line backers and cornerbacks.  The patriots LB's and CB's are weak. Keep the ball in the hands of receivers runnings slants, and across the middle with two safetys deep. 

4) Stop Trey Flowers - He's the best player on the front 7, find him and stop him. 

 

Here is how the Patriots can stop the Colts:

1) Stop Luck - Luck's going ot be looking for the short pass. The Patriots DB's are slow, and need to jam the receiver at the line of scrimage to allow their defense to get on Luck. 

2) Find the holes - Fine the holes in the Colts Zone's defense

3) Block the pass rush, which is much improved for the colts from last year

4) Deflate the balls - hey it worked in the playoffs a few years back!

The Colts are +375 underdogs on this match.
