With five finishes in a row, UFC lightweight Mairbek Taisumov is raring to fight somebody in the top 10.
Taisumov made that very clear with his epic callout of the division following his one-punch knockout of Felipe Silva at UFC Fight Night 115 last month, pointing out specific fighters who have dodged him. One thing standing in Taisumov’s way of top competition is issues with his visa, which has prevented him from fighting in the U.S. That naturally limits Taisumov’s opportunity to land a big-name opponent.
And so, with that in mind, take a look at this incredible Donald Trump-inspired cartoon Taisumov (26-5 MMA, 6-1 UFC) shared today on Twitter:
That, my friends, is just …
Politically charged MMA trash talk. Who knew!
For the record, if you’re wondering who that is in the cartoon, this how I see it:
The only issue, of course, is that McGregor and Barboza are included, which doesn’t jive with the “their own president” remark in the tweet since they aren’t American.
Doesn’t matter, though. This is still perfect.
