方塊拼雞腸:一場「私」鬥

【明報專訊】Did you watch the UFC match last Saturday? What could I say? It was just a brawl full of personal enmities! Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor, who loves to talk smack. But the two are pretty even; the former has never lost a match and the latter was once both the featherweight and lightweight champions. Unable to administer1 his iconic knock-down punch to his opponent, McGregor could only cover his face while Khabib's blows were raining2 down on him. An experienced wrestler, Khabib put Mcgregor into a head hold and forced him to surrender.

Last April McGregor attacked the bus Khabib was taking near a match venue. That's why Khabib had been cross with McGregor. Khabib should've quit while he was ahead. But he lost his marbles, climbed over the cage and pinned the blame on a member of McGregor's team by trying to assault him. They both need to behave themselves lest the UFC be ruined!

閣下有否觀看上周六舉行的終極格鬥賽事?筆者無話可說。只是一場「私」鬥!雖然諾曼高美度夫擊敗「嘴炮王」麥基哥,但兩位拳手實力相當。諾氏有不敗紀錄,而麥基哥曾為羽量及輕量雙料拳王。比賽期間麥基哥無法使出其招牌重拳,諾氏則拳如雨下,麥基哥只能掩臉抵擋。於第四回合,摔跤老手諾氏將麥基哥頭頸扣住,逼對方投降。

今年四月麥基哥曾襲擊對方所乘選手巴士,觸怒諾氏。諾氏本應「見好就收」,卻失去理性跨過鐵籠擂台,遷怒於對方團隊一員。兩人都要自律,以免毁掉終極格鬥的招牌!
