What’s your favorite cover, and by who? @drakewhitestomp’s cover of #JoeCocker ’s “Little Help from My Friends” is one of mine.
I remember the first time I saw the cracks and pops in a video of the Cocker performance of “Little Help” at #Woodstock and was instantly teleported away wishing so badly I could have been on that muddy hillside. His performance influences me to this day and is the definition of passion for me. Please enjoy this live memory with audio captured by the legendary #georgemassenburg . #LittleHelp#LittleHelpFromMyFriends
PAULO COSTA NOT IMPRESSED WITH WHITTAKER
Speaking to reporters, Costa had this to say about the middleweight champ Robert Whittaker (via MMAJunkie.com):
“After (I) win this fight, I will go to the title shot. I believe that. He’s a regular fight, for me. He’s not so good in the standup, or wrestling, or jiu-jitsu. He’s a regular fight, you know?” Thoughts? What do you guys think? - -
I completely disagree with this. I think Whittaker is one of the most well-rounded fighters around. He’s got great standup, good TD defense, and a good ground game too. Plus, he has insane chin. Think about it. No one else has taken that many shots from Yoel Romero and beat him twice. Costa has a big test ahead of him against Yoel Romero himself.
