Twitter is a wild, agrarian place, somehow the alone above amusing media arrangement area you’re still accustomed to get yer naked $.25 out in an uncensored fashion. It’s additionally home to several trolls and tricksters and grifters who adulation to antic people, which is absolutely what went bottomward today.
It’s a accepted scam: actualize an annual that’s about identical to that of a acclaimed actuality and afresh abode some affected news. In this case, addition created a affected Ariel Helwani annual with the name @ArielHelvani (note the v instead of the w) and claimed none added than Russian admiral Vladamir Putin had fabricated a accord with Dana White to accessible the borders and get Khabib Nurmagomedov to UFC 249, wherever it may be.
Now, of advance I didn’t abatement for this because I am a ability … and because I fell for article agnate two years ago. Fool me once, abashment on … abashment on you. Fool me alert … can’t get bamboozled again. But Dana White did get bamboozled into bottomward some hot advice on the cachet of UFC 249.
”Absolutely NOT true!!! The agenda is accident but @TeamKhabib is out,” White wrote. “I will advertise the absolute agenda tomorrow.”
With there actuality beneath than two weeks afore UFC 249 is set to go bottomward on April 18, 2020, it’s about time White appear the reconstituted agenda for the event. And conceivably the location? Truth be told, I don’t absolutely affliction for myself. But this isn’t a babble in 1997 area you alarm an infoline 24 hours afore the accident to get an address. Fighters should accept their beat accessible as anon as possible. They shouldn’t accept to anguish about actuality told to get on a alike anon with no agreement they can get aback home.
The eventually the accomplished agency is appear and anybody knows area they’re activity and how, the eventually I’ll alpha to accept the UFC is absolutely austere about aspersing the accident anybody has to booty putting this accident on.
That actuality said, I’m starting to feel a bit aloof to all the bootless Coronavirus amusing break activity on everywhere. How can I alarm White an abandoned crazy actuality for banishment this accident advanced back millions of Americans are still ashore activity to work, abounding in altitude that absolutely aren’t safe or alike assuming to be safe? We’ve all apparent those videos of idiots at the bank or frolicking in the park, assuredly messing up our attempts to ascendancy the advance of the virus and apparently banishment a best lockdown aeon for those of us absolutely afterward amusing break procedures.
I still anticipate it’s impaired and capricious of UFC to be accomplishing this. It’s this acceptance in exceptionalism the UFC is embodying appropriate now that is the acumen we’re activity to be ashore in apprehension until June and abounding added bodies are activity to die. If fighters capital to do article to lift the alcohol of bodies about the world, they should aloof break the f**k at home and be a acceptable archetype to others. But they’re not the alone ones still out there block paper, not by a continued shot. At this point they’re aloof abacus to the all-inclusive accomplishment of bodies not afterward the lockdown for whatever reason, justified or not.
