(We may give DW a lot of shit around here but, damn, this sure beats the hell out of casual Friday.)
Although closed-minded enthusiasts on both sides of the fence would scoff at the idea of being compared to the other, there’s no denying the sibling rivalry that exists between Boxing and MMA. Like brothers, we bicker, we call each other “homos,” we even butt heads a time or two. But at the end of the day, we look at each other with a mutual sense of respect, if not admiration…for the most part. Still, that
blood feud friendly sense of competition is ever-present.
With that in mind, we come to yet another crossroads in the Boxing vs. MMA debate: “Which sport’s athletes know how to celebrate in style MORE BETTER?”
The only reason we ask is because former welfare recipient turned UFC star and 50′s Ice Cream Shoppe owner, Conor McGregor, recently posted the above video depicting himself and UFC President Dana White touring the streets of Vegas in The Baldfather’s Ferrari. According to a tweet sent out by DW, the duo were celebrating McGregor’s birthday and looked to be having a smashing good time (*fires up trumpet, shimmies off stage*). Considering McGregor’s humble beginnings, it’s great to see the kid racking up KOTN bonuses in the UFC worth more than my annual salary. It just…sooo…great.
And while there’s no denying how baller custom tailored suits and Ferraris are, do they match up with, say, the antics of WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner? Join us after the jump to see what we mean.
(Skip to the 1:20 mark for the punchline.)
Speaking of fighters living large, here is the eloquently titled, “Adrien Broner takes a shit in Popeyes.” Uploaded by none other than Broner himself, the video depicts Adrien Broner…taking a shit in a Popeyes. I know, not exactly baller, right? Well, at least not until Broner turns the eye of his camera around to show us what we would expect to be a fiery, Bayou Buffalo-fueled shit. However, in a moment rivaling any M. Night Shyamalan movie before he simply gave up, Broner informs us that he is so rich, he literally defecates upwards of $80 every time he sits down. And rather than collect that butt money, he chooses to flush it down the toilet. Pretty classy, but true ballers let their dookie twinkle, baby.
To see if McGregor can score another one of those end-of-the-night bonuses that the UFC is definitely not eliminating (our shocked face can be seen here), make sure to check out his fight with Max Holloway on the preliminary card portion of UFC on FOX Sports 1.
