In life, some metaphors are confusing. When UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov’s head is attached to the body of King Kong all metaphor rules are thrown off the island. Maybe YouTube video maker #УЛЫБНИСЬ HOM1E, is trying to say “Oh, no, it wasn’t the airplanes. It was Beauty that killed the Beast.”
Nurmagomedov is the beast and UFC media rankers who slotted Rafael dos Anjos above our favorite Grape Ape are the beauties? You can watch Nurmagomedov fall off the Empire state building in New York, where MMA is still illegal, but you can’t stop a King Kong-faced version of the 26-year-old Russian from wiping the floor with Tyrannosaurus Rex-faced Anthony Pettis.
What a squash match for 125 pounds worth of UFC gold! Anthony Pettis T-Rex what was your gameplan? Where were your T-Rex Showtime kicks off the rocks? Listen to your dino corner and don’t just charge at King Kong Khabib Nurmagomedov. Sambo players on the level of Nurmagomedov will drop kickboxers on their head that run aimlessly at them 99 out of 100 times.
Look away Pettis fans, Nurmagomedov via animal ground n’ pound is a fate millions of years in the making.
