I am the beswt
I would predict this fight but as ai said before, I am taking a break after I was right. My greatness is undervalued, its stupid.
I am so tired of disrespectful little brats that keep on saying that I can't pick fights, well now what do you say when I picked rockhold to beat the undefeated chris weidman.who beat anderson silva twice and machida then belfort and people started calling him one of the best ever and I said no way, never. I was right and everyone showed such disgrace and disrespect, why. You give the man which is me respect and beg for forgiveness. I then picked the best fight ever. This is mcgregor beating jose aldo when aldo was supposed to be the best pound for pound fighter ever, wtf?? You stupid disrespectful idiots thought aldo would win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never, I never did. Never, I say again, never. yOU LLITTLE BRATS, I made cage rank. I made it, I make cage rank big and thats why there is almost 400 comments on aldo and mcgregor because of me!! cage rank never saw anything like that and if you block this post then I will never come back and you will never see my greatness and you will never see any comments like that in numbers again. I say what will happen, when it will happen, where it will happen, and of fucing course, how it will happen. I say what I know will happen, not what I hope or think might happen. I am going to hit a hundred fights in a row with a perfect streak, so far I need 98 more fights, thats easy money right there boys.
