Look good, fight good? Not in Street MMA. Not in 2019.
Sometimes to learn from your mistakes, you must look to your past. In the never-ending story that is Street MMA, let’s go back to earlier in 2019. A Street Fight, but on ice.
Kind of exactly like Disney on Ice, but not at all.
Though this fight may be exactly how a scrap between Aladdin and Jafar would play out if both were on ice skates.
It needs to said that our dude in the all red outfit has the fashion tale of the tape all wrapped up. A counterpoint to this clear win in the style department, is why did he show up to the Street Fight wearing one glove? Also, what kind of glove is that?
BMX glove? MMA glove? The kind of glove you only wear to slap people with on the off chance a duel breaks out?
In MiddleEasy canon, guy in all red everything is just a huge fan of UFC 1 tournament fighter Art Jimmerson. Yes, that Art Jimmerson. The man who showed up to UFC 1 wearing a single boxing glove on his left hand.
Sure you’re confident in yourself, but have you ever achieved “Art Jimmerson showing up to fight Royce Gracie in a cage, while wearing one boxing glove” level of confidence?
The great thing about this Lesson in Street MMA is that applies to all walks of life. Have a big job interview coming up? Don’t bring that one gloved overconfidence to the table. Built up the courage to ask your crush out? If you have a figurative one glove approach, your love won’t broach.
It rhymes so it must be true. Now watch this dude with one glove swagger eat a clean punch in slow motion.
