Mcgregor Faces Cowboy In A Long Awaited Grudge Match

After announcing one of many retirements a few weeks ago, the former UFC Featherweight Champion and UFC Lightweight Champion double champ Conor Mcgregor has been training hard in preparations for a UFC return since his suspension from what took place last October at UFC 229. Many are expecting the #3 ranked Lightweight in the division to take on #4 ranked Lightweight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in a bout that has been long awaited by everyone.

Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone is coming off a spectacular performance over Al Iaquinta at UFC Fight Night 151 in a fight he won by unanimous decision. Al Iaquinta was dropped a few times throughout the fight including a nasty front kick to the face from "Cowboy" Cerrone that was a kick to remember. Since moving back to the Lightweight division, Cowboy has 2 wins with 2 dominant performances with one of those performances was the TKO victory over Alexander Hernandez.

Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone has continued to express his interest in a fight with "The Notorious" Conor Mcgregor in post-fight interviews and media days. Conor Mcgregor has also continued to express interest in fighting Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone on social media regardless of his so-called retirement. The seed was planted way back during a press conference were "Cowboy" Cerrone and Conor Mcgregor exchanged verbal jabs at one another. On Joe Rogan's podcast, Donald Cerrone who was guest revealed that left him fuming as he was angry with Mcgregor but essentially did not want to get out of his comfort zone of getting out of character due to Mcgregor's shenanigans.

It seemed like the fight was off after news first surfaced that negotiations for the fight fell through on the side of Mcgregor. Everyone is fully aware of while the UFC is pretty much full-time partners with ESPN; it is not necessarily the best for fighters when it comes to fighter salaries and the pay per view numbers. Conor Mcgregor has continued to protest that he deserves a percentage of the company. While honestly it would be deserved at the end of the day it is nonsense as there would be plenty of fighters that would deserve equity in the company. Everyone is aware of the success of "The Notorious" Conor Mcgregor's success with his Proper Irish Whiskey company as he raked in over a close to $1 billion as it has really taken off.

While everyone is ready to do what they have to do it seems like it always falls on Conor Mcgregors lap when it comes to the money situation and negotiations. Recently, the UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier was in a situation like this with former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar as the fight was essentially booked but the UFC could not come to terms with Lesnar due to the finances. While Lesnar knows what is going on with ESPN being the holder of UFC PPV's he wanted a flat out pay for the fight. This could very well be what is taking place with the "Notorious" Conor Mcgregor who is coming off of a loss to the current UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
