Marco Rubio Vs. Salt Bae Is Postponed Until UFC 231
The scheduled fight between Junior Senator of Florida Marco Rubio and internet sensation Salt Bae has been postponed until UFC 231, according to a statement from UFC President Dana White. The reason for this postponement is directly to do with Rubio being attacked and injured by a shark off the coast of Cuba last month. Rubio v. Salt Bae was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 229, but now the fight will be moved up to December 8 of this year, and according to White, "at that point, after such a lengthy postponement, nobody will know why or care why they're fighting, they'll just be happy people are fighting, and that is what the UFC is all about."
Salt Rae released a statement on his Instagram page, saying that "That little punk Rubio is way too chicken to go up against a beefcake like me. In the end, I'll make the night sizzle at UFC 231 and my bite will hurt you more than a shark."
Rubio is currently recovering from his shark bite injury at his home in West Miami, Florida. The junior senator of Florida spoke with Flake News and told them that "Salt Bae doesn't have a chance when he goes up against 'BIG' Marco," insisting that our reporters capitalize all the letters in the word 'big' while winking at his wife and referencing the Cuban Missile Crisis.
"At UFC 231, Salt Bae's goose is cooked," said Rubio. "He's better off preparing expensive meals to dictators than going toe-to-toe with a man who's 1-0 with Alex Jones at Hell in a Cell. I'll be dedicating that fight to the NRA, so you know I'll be fighting hard and using tools of violence for my political advantage."
NRA President Oliver North previously promised that if Rubio wins, he'll receive a bonus in his salary from the NRA.
US President Donald Trump weighed in the fight between Salt Bae and Marco Rubio, writing on Twitter that, "Rubio is a loser who couldn't hold his weight in a debate. He couldn't save the people of Venezuela or fight off that shark. I would have beat that shark so bad, I tell ya, that no shark would ever come along the coast of Cuba again."
"How the hell is Little Marco going to take on anyone in a cage? He's weak. Low energy. A little guy," wrote Trump in a follow-up tweet. "And if you ask me, I say Salt Bae is going to win because I know a thing or two about steaks, and this guy much like me, I tell ya, knows exactly what he's doing."
