What. The F@#k. Just Happened?

It was no dream. There is no waking up from this one. Sean Strickland really DID show up on Saturday at UFC 293 and take the middleweight title from Israel Adesanya by shocking unanimous decision. This was no lucky punch or freak injury. Nope. Sean Strickland just went out there and did Sean Strickland stuff and Adesanya basically had no answer for it. Un-fucking-believable.

Did we (and by “we” I mean I — Chad) make this happen? Look, we were just trying to bring some Silly Little Guy energy to our bets on last week’s Power Hour, but it seems possible we did spark the wrath of the MMA Gods by including Izzy in all of our parlays. Sorry about that. Now we all have a few months of a Strickland title reign to suffer through before somebody inevitably beats him. What will that be like? Who’s next ? And what does the UFC do with the suddenly 1-2 Adesanya? We discourse.
