Crystal Keys to Victory: UFC 272

Hello stone cold rock lovers, Crystal Keys To Victory is back! I feel grumpy about this card so sorry if this edition is grumpy. Is anyone else sick of the same faces spinning around on the same carousel? Do we need new blood? Or just fighters who aren’t jerks? Something is happening because this card isn’t exciting me. So yes, this edition of Crystal Keys is a little shady. And I may end up threatening Greg Hardy’s life just a bit. Lol?


UFC 272

Jorge Masvidal
Golden Labradorite

A rare stone, beams positivity and carries a heavy masculine energy. A stone of great magic, it awakens our natural gifts, and brings success in any endeavor we dedicate ourselves to.  I’m just very blah about this match-up. Jorge has lost some mystique over the past couple years, Colby is out-cringing Cejudo, the trash talk has been yucky, and everything about it is just kinda yucky. Team Masvidal by default. 

Bryce Mitchell
Green Aventurine

Brings strength, money, confidence, courage, and happiness. Renews one’s optimism for life, and ignites an inner fire to reach for your biggest goals. Encourages one to get out of their comfort zone, to branch out, and to grow as a person.

So an episode of UFC 272 Countdown aired on ABC Saturday afternoon. It showed Bryce Mitchell getting ready for his fight, training in front of his house (which was a camper), and above the camper was what can only be described as a gas station canopy. I’m literally stunned the UFC thinks this was a good look. Your main card fighter lives in a field in a Mad Max metal pile. Trust me, go watch it, it’s on YouTube. Anyway, this is why I gave Bryce an abundance stone. He’s a little batty, but maybe some money and travel and life experience would do his brain some good. (HASHTAG PAY FIGHTERS MORE)

Greg Hardy
Bumblebee Jasper

Bumblebee Jasper, while beautiful, is considered highly toxic. It contains a very high concentration of arsenic. It should be minimally handled, should never get through the skin, and should never be ingested. Lemme know how that works out for ya, Greg.
