Linked video is some nerd explaining the relevant drama, im going to go into unnecessary levels of detail below.
Its an open, mostly unspoken secret in MMA gyms that the coach game is OP when it comes to hooking up with students. Its interesting because its really just MMA . Boxing gyms are mostly man territory and boxers get in trouble for beating their wives but rape and grooming shit seems to be coming from BJJ/MMA clubs. Im pretty sure this is because boxing in burgerland is run by Kangs, while mma, esp Brazilian Jiu Jitsu attracts mayos 🤢 🤢. Super redditor style weird mayos too. Something about wanting to know how to hurt people but scared to get hurt at all yourself I think. (BJJ is all grappling, often starting from your knees, no strikes, and you tap out once it starts to hurt if you arent an idiot)
Case in point is the Lloyd Irvin cult, but its unrelated to the current drama other than proving my point here. Still some crazy shit on its own tho.
Anyways, MMA gyms are a closed off ecosystem with clear alpha(s), primal stuff in the air, and lots of physical contact. MMA gyms having mayos makes them more suburb friendly, so they usually have casual classes to pay the bills with a team of fighters to actually win fights, credibility, etc. Enter in some yoga pantsed mayo foids that thinks it looks fun to get in shape and people are having sex mk. And if youre the coach, the king of your own little ecosystem, you typically get your pick of the litter. and yes i meant for that to start sounding creepy.
Sometimes theres some friction between the coach and the top fighter, classic young buck/old bull dichotomy is real. Either way, guys (and gals) that get into fighting that seriously generally have something wrong with them, so the drama can get crazy too. “Kingdom” does a good job making a show out of all of this. Which is some of the best TV ive ever seen in my life tbh. Even if you dont follow mma I recommend to anyone. The coolest ive ever seen a twinky jonas brother do too.
If youre still reading im assuming thats enough context so lets talk about Rose Namajunas, top level UFC 115lb womens fighter, but one of the most annoying, starting with trying to figure how tf to pronounce her name, and then finding out shes a total spoiled headcase foid. Reddit used to simp for her hard but even they are getting sick of her shit in light of recent events.
This video was hella cute tho.
Dont let it fool you, shes always crying about her mental health. Guess she has been through some shit, but shes the stereotypical “dont question my trauma and therefore any of my choices” white girl. To her credit tho, when shes found something that works for keeping her head straight, shes done some amazing shit, knocking out a polish and then a chinese pair of juggernaughts. Her last fight was terrible tho, she barely did anything, had the audacity to act like she kicked the girls ass definitively, and ended up losing the decision.
Part of the problem is clearly her husband in her corner, ex-ufc heavyweight Pat Barry. Best known for being on the receiving end of a viral knockout https://ok.ru/video/2773353774 And being a semi psycho goofball until recently. This rslur is giving corner advice like “you hear those boos? That means its working!” And “youre the best, youre amazing!” After a rd where she didnt do shit but move around. Afterwards, one of the excuses Pat threw out as an explanation were the recent comments made by Sean Strickland,
Who is Sean Strickland you say? Im so happy you asked. Sean is a top ten ufc middleweight contender, proud white trash, ex neo nazi, porn star wooing dramanaught, through and through.
I couldnt pick just a few, his whole timeline is a goldmine of rslurred basedness, constantly making redditards seethe, its great. Recently tho, theyve magically found some common ground, Seans been calling out the groomers in MMA
Im pretty sure Sean is just enjoying using his powers of assholia for good, and its great, cus hes also one of the few men in the world that could say this shit to their faces and be just fine with any of them. (MW is 185, but walking around hes probably 210ish on the heavy side. Itd be totally normal if he jumped into “hard sparring” with heavyweights. Gym wars over some personal shit are better fights than a lot of what we see on tv too btw.
Anyways, the coach game is already OP, so when its being run on literal children thats just beyond unacceptable. Well sometimes these mma power couples got questionable timelines, and the Rose-Pat Barry one is the most well known cus its bad, Pats almost 10 years older, said it was “love at first sight” and someone did the math, they met when Rose started training at like 15-16. Open and shut case officer.
Sean has been talking that shit loud and proud and good for him. But another fighting Dramanaught, Paulo Costa, took advantage of the noise being made to troll the fuck out Dana White with a well photoshopped picture originally of Pat and Rose. https://calfkicker.com/paulo-costa-tries-to-get-fired-by-sharing-photoshopped-images-of-rose-namajunas-and-dana-white/
Rose and Pat are trying to say Sean talking shit fucked her head up and I actually believe it, which is hilarious. Theyve been doing constant cope and seethe interviews trying to explain away her loss and the grooming allegations and its just coming off worse and worse. Cringe moments.
Seans shitposting has actually affected reality, what a dimension we’re in, lol.
TL:DR; highly neurodivergent Ex neo nazi shitposting ufc fighter calls out notorious groomer couple in the ufc. Groomed fighter loses her fight, redditors are grudgingly being drawn to the based light.
