I'm telling you these guys are great to listen to... they would fit right in here. Openly dissing socialism, AOC, the pussification of men in merica, chanting lets go Brandon, how the country needs a backbone from the top to bottom, etc.

This guy was one of my favorites to watch. Interesting guy too.

Moroșanu holds the record for longest winning streak in SUPERKOMBAT history with 17 consecutive wins. His streak, started in 2011, came to an end in controversial loss to Daniel Sam at SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix: Puerto Rico in 2016.[1]

He holds notable victories in his career over Stefan Leko, Gary Goodridge, Mighty Mo, Carter Williams, Paul Slowinski, Freddy Kemayo and Anderson Silva.

Moroșanu is considered to be slugger (brawler). He is a fighter who has the power to knock out their opponents with one punch. He has compared himself to Bob Sapp.[2]

As of 1 November 2018, he is #10 contender in the world in official GLORY heavyweight rankings.[3] And as of 6 June 2019, he is ranked the #12 heavyweight in the world by All The Best Fights.[4]

In 2017, Disney Pixar chose the kickboxer to provide the Romanian voice of a local from the animated movie Coco.[5]

Career
Outside the ring Edit
Personal life Edit
Moroșanu is married and has one daughter. He holds a bachelor's degree in Law and also owns a kickboxing gym in his home country of Romania. A notably interesting fact about Moroșanu is that the K-1 promotion arbitrarily created the image of him as a crop farmer. In one of their promotional video-clips, Moroșanu appears driving an old tractor.[38] In yet another clip from the company, Moroșanu appears to be drinking and promoting a brand of wine, which supposedly gives him super-hero like fighting powers. The wine is supposed to be, albeit fallaciously, his own signature line.[39]

Television Edit
From March 19 through May 7, 2010, Moroșanu participated in Dansez pentru tine (the local version of Dancing with the Stars). He stated that his motivation and financial winnings would go to support a young widow, who wanted to make her daughter's life easier, and filled with the happiness that she deserved but had lost with the death of her father. He made it to the final elimination round, and won the 1st place at the end of the show, earning 60,000 Euros for Magdalena Ciorobea (his dancing partner in the show), collecting over 13,000 votes.

On March 8, 2015 Moroșanu won the first series of Sunt celebru, scoate-mă de aici!, the Romanian version of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.

Politics Edit
Moroșanu is currently serving a term as a Iași County councilor. He has been elected in June 2012.[40]

Masvidal or Covington?

looks like a good fight , friends turned into foes

it’s all about the money and this one could be a record breaker at the gates

I pick Masvidal by TKO , only because he is a MAGA fighter

Colby. Looks very strong, healthy and focused. Masvidal seems low energy. I do believe the beef is 100% fake as well. I think Masvidal knows he can't take Colby and so does Colby.

BTW: to be technical, Cody is much more of a MAGA fighter that Masvidal.
