    It’s been done before but deserves repeating. Please help provide simple translations to common MMA words and sayings:

    He has a puncher’s chance = He doesn’t have a very good chance

    When a fighter complains he doesn’t want to be “lay and prayed”, “grapplefucked” , or that he wants his opponent to “fight like a man” thus implying he stand and strike = My opponent is better at grappling then me.

    Some Roganisms:

    This is a classic striker vs grappler match = we don’t anticipate an exciting match

    This guy has tons f experience = he’s old.

    This guy has Neo-striking = he does karate

    Etc.

    something something something "In all of MMA" = announcer needs something to hype up fighter, even if they are shit.

    "don't expect this one to go the distance" = these dudes are about to bang, bro

    "blow his wad" = classic reference to Carwin tiring against Brock. Implies a fighter needs to think carefully and use energy wisely when going for the kill.

    gatekeeper - someone who is consistently ranked like 3rd to 8th who wins and loses when expected.

    Contender = person most likely to help sell tickets

    He has a great chin = he doesn’t defend against strikes well and if he doesn’t fix that he will have a brittle glass chin within two years

    This guy is showing tons of heart = this guy is losing badly

    Don’t count him out = It’s pretty safe to count him out now

    He is the GOAT = not the GOAT

    he was three times bigger than me = that skinny cholo beat the shit out of me, so I need to find some excuses pronto

    he has world elite bjj/wrestling = he is not that shitty are bjj/wrestling

    this will be a chess match = the Just Bleed Gods didn't like our offering

    I plan to defend my belt = it really depends on who is my opponent

    I used Viagra/Cialis and... = I am juiced as fuck

    I blame tainted supplements = I am juiced as fuck, but too embarrased to blame sexual enhancement pills

    It must be a mistake = I a juiced as fuck, but not that stupid to blame the supplement company

    I don't read social media comments = I read social media comments

    I am happy with my UFC contract = I deserve more money

    Beg me to fight you = I am shit scared that you will ground and pound me for 5 rounds

    Where's your kid at? = I am upset that you poored water on me, but I am too an alpha male and I will not admit that, instead I will start a fight with you, taking on your family, because that shit always works
