    Thank you President Trump and First Lady Melania for embracing We The People with your unconditional love, service, sacrifices and for your kept promises in MAGA! Praying that you both and your family will return soon before we no longer have a great nation of the free because of the brave is gone forever. God Bless you both and your beautiful family 🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️ Trump,is My President! He did more good for our country in four years than any other President did in the last 20 years! President Biden & his cohorts have done their best to negate all the good that was done in the 4 years that Trump was in office. Look at the southern border & see the damage Biden did there. I don't know who the real president is but he is running our country into the ground!

    @Arthur The conflict last year was pretty bad between Hong Kong and mainland China. A decent amount of Hong Kong protestors are actually fleeing to Taiwan. There is quite a lot of similarities. It seems the story is not so different after all.

    @mixedmartial Artes Weight cutting is a part of it, but Mcgregor had a good gas tank when he cut down to 145, Dustin walks around at 190 (!!!) and is fine for cardio, Khabib is similar (0 cardio issues even tho he looks dead at weigh-ins), and Tiny Ferguson never gets tired, and he has a welterweight frame (cuts a lot of weight). I think weight cutting mess up your skills more than your cardio. Good example is Robert Whittaker at WW, Tony Ferguson's double weight cut vs Gaethje, and Kevin Lee's brain holes.

    Maybe it could be because of the brutal weight cut they mostly all go through. Or just bc both are super skilled and it makes them both work more .
