UFC 87 Thoughts featuring Geto Boys

I didn't watch UFC 87, but that's not going to stop me from talking about the event.

I'm using the Geto Boys timeless "Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta" to help me comment on the event. Geto Boys & "Damn if Feels Good to be a Gangsta" are best known to MMA fans (ie. white people) for their appearance on the soundtrack to Office Space.

A real gangsta-ass nigga plays his cards right
A real gangsta-ass nigga never runs his fuckin mouth
Cuz real gangsta-ass niggas don't start fights
Jason MacDonald - You never hear him running his mouth and he keeps overachieving. Yeah, he lost, but who thought he'd be able to fight off some of Maia's submissions & get Maia in trouble.

And niggas always gotta high cap
Showin' all his boys how he shot em
But real gangsta-ass niggas don't flex nuts
Cuz real gangsta-ass niggas know they got em
Brock Lesnar - Even Tito Ortiz thought your post fight (and end of fight) clowning in the Octagon was excessive. Act like you've been here before. You didn't win a title or pull off a major upset. You beat a perennial also ran in a fight were you were a 2-1 to 3-1 favorite.

And everythings cool in the mind of a gangsta
Cuz gangsta-ass niggas think deep
Up three-sixty-five a year 24/7
Cuz real gangsta ass niggas don't sleep
GSP - He's not quite as active as Silva (but who is?), but moments after his win against the 2nd highest rated 170 lb in the UFC, and a consensus top 10 170 lb in the world, he acepted a challenge from BJ Penn.

And all I gotta say to you
Wannabe, gonnabe, cocksuckin', pussy-eatin' prankstas
Cuz when the fry dies down what the fuck you gonna do
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
Jon Fitch - This is harsh because I like Fitch, and his loss came against the best 170 lb in the world and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in he world. But,what can he do when he can't out wrestle his opponent?

Although I was born in Jamaica
Now I'm in the US makin' deals
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
I mean one that you don't really know
Demain Maia - He's not from Jamaica, but he's 8-0 (3-0 in the UFC) and looks like a serious contender to be the 2nd best middleweight in the UFC (no one's a contender to over take Silva as the best middleweight for at least a year and a half)

Real gangsta-ass niggas don't talk much
All ya hear is the black from the gun blast
Rob Emerson - You didn't hear him talking before UFC 87, partly because no one could figure out how his fight was on the main card, but damn people are now talking about his KO of Gamburyan.

Now when you in the free world talkin' shit do the shit
Hit the pen and let the mothafuckas shank ya
Heath Herring & Roger Huerta - Before getting in the cage, Herring was complaining about Mir fighting for the title instead of him & that he shouldn't have to fight Lesnar. Before getting in the cage, Huerta was bitching about his contract and asking for a Chuck Liddel level contract that pays a guaranteed 6 figures plus points on the pay-per-view. In the cage, both Herring and Huerta got stopped. Both men lost unanimous decisions with neither one winning a round.

Sadly, none of the lyrics can live up to Kongo's insane post fight comments which deserve their own post, that post is coming later this week.
