Haha yeah Joe let me..us down

He got destroyed head butt was not cause he was too small, scared and had bad plan.
If a bigger guy is smashing you, get tactical with leg kicks and make openings.
Also would have slowed him down "IF Joe survived a couple more rounds he may have had a chance.

Run of luck?

I don't know if it was beginner's luck or if I tapped into the Tapology spirits or maybe I'm just that damn good at predictions! I highly doubt if I have this same type of outcome for UFC 248. But if I do you can bet that I will be telling you about in my usual verbose and articulate manner at nausium because I'm poor and can't afford a hype man or PR department! Plus I am my own best representative and consummate cheerleader. When the subject matter is something that I have become so familiar with over the last 25 years on top of the decade or so of my own combat sports experience it is as though I can write the story when the matches are set. If the competitors are known to me the fight plays out in my head and later in life without many suprises. It is entertaining to read and get in on the discussions with the younger fans. Frustrating sometimes when the fan boys who obviously got into the sport due to the love of one athlete. They defend these idols with such passion claiming that their favorite has superhuman capabilities and can beat anyone on the planet past, present or future.  But hey who cares? As long as they found their way to the MMA interest they will mature with time. Lmao
