The Kansas City Chiefs have emerged victorious in the Super Bowl, leaving the MMA world with mixed reactions. On Sunday night, the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 22-19 in an overtime game for the ages. Patrick Mahomes played a key role in the win, throwing for 333 yards and scoring the game-winning touchdown.
The MMA community was not immune to the excitement of the game, with several prominent figures rooting for the Chiefs. Nate Diaz, a Stockton native and fellow Californian, was particularly vocal in his support for his home team. However, others were disappointed that a UFC 300 main event fight announcement did not occur during the game. Instead, UFC 300 remains without a main event.
Despite their victory on the field, some members of the MMA community expressed dissatisfaction with certain aspects of their performance. Derek Brunson was particularly critical of Travis Kelce’s play and felt that he owed Andy Reid an apology for his mistakes on the field. Others were more positive about their performance and expressed their enthusiasm for future games to come.
