Who knew there was a title fight this weekend? We did, because we know everything. Including the future. #TeamKnee telling it like it is, yet again.
One afternoon, while salivating over smoked salmon on soda bread and drinking a dry cappuccino, I heard the lyrics “This is a Maaaans world, and it would be nuffink, nuffink without a woman or a girl…”. This got me thinking two things: first was how Ronda Rousey has helped the female division of this sport leap to new heights, the other was “Why on earth am I in this café?”.
At The Phantom Knee, we don’t predict fights. We’ll predict pretty much anything else, though.
The Queen is dead… Ronda Rousey has been defeated. Deposed from her throne by someone very nice, but not exceptionally pretty or interesting, the Ned Stark of cage-fighting. Beyond laughing at screengrabs of Dana White’s disappointed face, where do we go from here?
Biggest star. Biggest stage.
