The post 10 Biggest Post-Fight Meltdowns In MMA History appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

From the very beginning, there has been a fair share of post-fight meltdowns in MMA history.

Whether it was MMA’s original bad boy, Tito Ortiz, nearly inciting a riot with the Lions Den after his victory of Guy Metzger or Ronda Rousey going AWOL after losing the women’s bantamweight title, post-fight freakouts are must-watch TV.

The term meltdown or even freakout is a bit subjective. So for the purpose of this list, we will define meltdown as ‘a sudden loss of control over one’s feeling or behavior.’

So with that in mind, we scoured the combat sports landscape to bring you 10 of the biggest post-fight meltdowns in MMA history.

The list starts here, enjoy.

Jon Jones

Daniel Cormier

Before Daniel Cormier became the undisputed “baddest man on the planet” by defeating Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 and thus becoming the first man ever to hold both the light heavyweight title and the heavyweight strap at the same time, he was one of the internet’s hottest memes.

Cormier met his longtime rival Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title at July 2017’s UFC 214 from Anaheim, California. Although “DC” faired well in the early going of the five-round fight, Jones was the better man on that night. He knocked Cormier out with a third-round head kick to regain the title before testing positive for ********.

Sadly, the image of a grown man in tears is what most people remember from UFC 214.

The crying face Cormier meme quickly became the web’s newest way to express one’s unpleasantries, joining the famous crying Michael Jordan meme in the process.

Colby Covington Is Rooting For Tyron Woodley At UFC 228

Despite a very public feud, Colby Covington is rooting for Tyron Woodley at UFC 228.

Despite their very public beef, Colby Covington is rooting for Tyron Woodley at UFC 228.

Matchmakers acted swiftly when interim welterweight champion Colby Covington opted to take care of a sinus injury rather accept a fight with champion Tyron Woodley. The matchmakers instead went with rising UK star Darren Till to challenge Woodley for the title at UFC 228 on Sept. 8, 2018.

However, Covington believes that without the presence of Jon Jones or Conor McGregor, Woodley can’t sell pay-per-views. That’s exactly why ‘Chaos’ thinks the UFC should’ve stood pat and waited a month.

“They don’t sell f*cking pay per views in the UK [where Till is from], and obviously no one cares about Woodley,” Covington told BJPENN.COM Radio. “He always has to piggyback off Jon Jones, and piggyback off Connor McGregor to make his money. So we know he can’t sell pay per views, so let’s be honest, this isn’t gonna do over 100,000 buys. They should have just waited for me,” he added.

“I would have easily got them 500,000 buys [if they had waited for me],” he said. “I’m a seller. I can promote. I know what I’m doing now, and I think they rushed it.”

Covington’s rise to the top of the welterweight division was not by chance. The American Top Team (ATT) fighter is as cerebral as he is talented. That’s why he doesn’t want “The Chosen One” to mess up his plan.

“I never thought I would say this, but I’m actually rooting for Woodley,” he said. “I want him to win, because I don’t want him to f*ck up everything I built, I built this fight with him for over a year-and-a-half. I’ve been begging to fight him, dude, he’s ducking me every shot he can. So I’m begging for Woodley not to f*ck this up.”

Woodley has his hands full with Till. Many MMA prognosticators have the young Brit pegged as the future of the division.

A Covington-Till fight just doesn’t have the same heat as a potential Woodley fight does.

Kamaru Usman Expresses ‘Malicious Intent’ For Colby Covington

Kamaru Usman has made his intentions known about Covington.

The post Kamaru Usman Expresses ‘Malicious Intent’ For Colby Covington appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Kamaru Usman expresses his intentions if the UFC decides to book him in a fight against interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington.

As seen in the main event of UFC Chile on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile on FOX Sports 1, Usman was able to defeat former title contender Demian Maia by unanimous decision. After the fight, Usman went on record by stating that he believes he deserves a title shot as a result of the biggest win thus far in his pro-MMA career.

Kamaru Usman Expresses

Usman made it clear in a recent interview on The MMA Hour with Luke Thomas that he has plans for Covington if they fight. The reason for it is due to the interim champion allegedly turning down a fight with him.

The rising contender has made a smart play as he will weigh-in and is on hand in case either UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley or Darren Till can’t fight come fight night at the UFC 228 event. He also made it known that another fight he’s interested in is against former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

“If I do fight anybody, besides winning the title on Sept. 8, it will be RDA. That’s really the only fight that makes sense. He just fought for an interim title, that’s the fight that puts me right there,” Usman said.

“I’m not getting Till, which I wanted. Covington, four times I’ve been offered that fight. He’s declined each and every one — I’m not getting that fight. The only guy left to put me right there is RDA.”

Bad Blood

Usman continued by stating that Covington is the only fighter he has issues with over the failed attempts to get a fight with him and that’s what his problem is.

“Four times I’ve been offered that fight and he said no. They tried to make that fight again for Nov. 30th. They offered me the fight and I said, ‘Absolutely, I will wait for that fight’. They actually offered me RDA for that main event in Brazil that Glover [Teixeira] and Jimi Manuwa just got announced on. I said, ‘Yes, I’m ready, I’ll take the fight’, but he said he was dealing with something. He turned it down or he wasn’t ready to fight,” Usman said.

The UFC 228 pay-per-view event is set to take place on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center. The main card will air on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET while the preliminary card will air on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET and the promotion’s streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.

“If they had have offered me Covington on Nov. 30th, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely’. That’s the one guy that I really have malicious intent to hurt inside that cage. Of course, they did offer me that and I did jump on that. But then [Covington] went to the White House and came back and was like, ‘I don’t want that fight’.”
