Let's be clear about one thing: 12uppercut does not advocate violence that isn't sanctioned by a duly-certified governing body. We're not animals.
That said, it's worth considering, in the wake of the recent explosive belligerence at UFC 244 and Canelo-Kovalev, whose precious mug most deserves to be next in the punchface firing line. Think about it: some guys just seem to be begging for a KO based on their ridiculous antics and cocksure braggadocio. And we're here to name the top five malignant, insufferable contenders for this dubious honor.
5. Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor has lost four times in his MMA career, including twice in UFC. Each time, it's come via submission. Unfortunately, not all stoppage losses are created equal. This man is off the reservation. He fights old men at bars and has faced multiple accusations of sexual assault. He's a hooligan who speaks out of turn for fun. It would be truly amazing to witness him getting a three piece and a soda in the Octagon.
4. Adrien Broner
Come on, the dude's nickname is "The Problem"! Adrien Broner runs his mouth in an authentically blasphemous manner, is famously erratic, and has demonstrated next to no self-control over the course of his career. Just ask Gervonta Davis, who allegedly tussled with Broner the night of the Canelo-Kovalev fight in Las Vegas. The former world champ has faced multiple battery charges in his lifetime, but has never been knocked out. Not once. It would be wonderful if an enterprising welterweight out there could do him that favor.
3. Floyd Mayweather
At some point, Floyd Mayweather became a cartoon villain. He may have 50 wins and zero losses, but he matches a careful-to-the-point-of-boredom boxing style with a checkered, troublesome personal history. If for no reason than to know that it can actually be done, it would sure be nice to see Money hit the deck hard, but we'll surely never get that chance.
2. The New York State Athletic Commission
Yes, Nate Diaz sustained a nasty cut below his eye in the main event of UFC 244. But did we have to stop the proceedings that fast? Think about the context of the "BMF championship" against Jorge Masvidal-- let the kids play, New York State Athletic Commission! We feel for the NYSAC physician who recommended the stoppage only to receive serious threats later on. That's disgusting. But we can still be super-mad at the decision itself.
1. Colby Covington
Let's be clear about one thing: America deserves Colby Covington, a blathering, blustering MAGA sucksack if there ever was one. He's a blasphemous, boorish ruffian whose continued existence as a UFC welterwight contender increasingly brings the sport of mixed martial arts into ill repute. A Trump family favorite, the cause of freedom and democracy necessitates that Kamaru Usman opens up a can on this man at UFC 245 in December.
