So Overeem left Golden Glory as a gym and management. I guess the UFC money changes things around and he doesn't want to support them by himself.

GSP brought in Dan Hardy to train for Carlos Condit... I'll let that sink in. The guy that GSP fought to a UD and that Condit KTFO in the 1st round. Maybe it's to work on GSP's wrestling. I don't know.

I hope Condit wins. He knocks people out or submits him. GSP is a great fighter but he's playing it too safe. Look at Jones vs Rampage. Jones played it safe and still submited Rampage. GSP couldn't finish Jake Shields and Ellenberguer does it in less than a minute. I refuse to believe Ellenberguer is superior to GSP. Come on, knock Condit out or something.

Siyar Bahadurzada signed with the UFC and he's coming in at WW. Goody? He hasn't beaten anyone of notice while fighting at WW but it's some new blood in the division... and will probably be spilled quite soon.

Carwin is out of his fight at UFC 141. More back surgery. He's 36 and had surgery two times already for his back. I think he should just retire but his pride may be getting the better of him by not wanting to go out on 2 devastating losses.

Anthony Johnson finally decided to move up to MW and will fight Vitor Belfort also at UFC 142. He's still huge, even for MW.

Yoshihiro Akiyama makes his WW debut against Jake Shields at UFC 144 in Japan. Also on the card, Yushin Okami vs Tim Boetsch. If Akiyama loses (he will), he might as well just stay there in Japan because he'll be cut (unless Lorenzo likes him Dan Hardy style). Shields is probably on thin ice as well since he's pretty much also a dud in the UFC roster.

And Fedor won a luke-warm UD against Jeff Monson in Moscow. Next in line is Satoshi Ishii on New Year's Eve card in Japan. Fedor, 33?4 and one of the best HW fighters ever, against Satoshi Ishii, a Olympic judoca who's 4-1-1 who just recently debuted at LHW and got a win against a washed up Paulo Filho. Wonder how that will go... probably like Overeem vs Duffee.

Surprise no mention of the Alvarez v Chandler fight. That loss equates to a big shift in the pound for pound rankings.

They always seem to exagerate. Like Sherdog who dropped Alvarez from the #6 at LW and moved in Chandler as #10. It's a clear overreaction to a very good fight. Alvarez is still pretty much a Top 10 LW and he's the only notch in the belt of Chandler. Why should Chandler occupy the 10th position ahead of Alvarez who's fought and won many other guys or even ahead of Melvin Guillard or Joe Lauzon who have faced much tougher competition than him. As for the Top 10 P4P, Chandler isn't even remotely close to cracking it.

The full fight is available on Bellator's YT channel. Go watch it. Now!

True, P4P rankings are pretty obscure pending whom is listing them and on what decision. Still huge though considering Alvarez's status. I'm not sold on Chandler yet, I still believe Alvarez beats him 4 out of 5 times.

P4P would make sense if it wasn't an ordinal list. Make a Top 10 MMA fighters regardless of weightclass and that's that. No arguing about wether Aldo is #3 or #4 behind or in front of Fitch or GSP. 7 places are pretty much taken by every UFC champion, leaving 3 spots opens for Fitch, Melendez and Evans for example. I don't understand why people insist on ranking Shogun over Evans, with Evans being much more consistent than Rua and only having 1 loss on his record.

So... Keith Jardine is getting a title shot at 185 against Luke Rockhold. This makes no sense whatsoever. He hasn't fought at 185 in ages, lost 6 of his last 8 fights and has no business fighting for a title. All of this because Tim Kennedy is unavailable. If the losing streak doesn't matter (which it clearly doesn't), just give the shot to Robbie Lawler or a rematch with Jacar?. Goddamn.

Flyweight division is here! 4 man tournament for the title. Ian McCall fights Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez fights Yasuhiro Urushitani. Pretty sure the final is going to be Mighty Mouse vs Benavidez.

      Apple releases new Pride Edition sports bands for the Apple Watch
      by João Carrasqueira

      Around this time of the year, some companies join the celebration of Pride Month and the Stonewall riots. Apple has also done this for the past few years, with watch bands for the Apple Watch making use of the multi-colored stripes in the Pride flag, and this year, the company is doing it again.

      This time around, the company is releasing two new rubber sports bands in the theme of Pride. One is the regular sports band, which basically just looks like the pride flag, except it wraps around your wrist. There's also a Pride flag watch face to match. The other is part of the lineup of Nike-branded bands, and it features a much more subtle implementation of the Pride colors, along with an equally subtle watch face. The new watch faces will arrive with watchOS 6.2.5.

      As usual, sales of these Pride Edition watch bands help support organizations that work for the LGBT community, including GLSEN, PFLAG, The Trevor project, and more.

      In 2018, Apple used a nylon watch band to promote the Pride celebrations, but this year, you can only get the multi-colored look in the rubber bands, and it doesn't look like you can buy the previous editions from Apple. On the bright side, every generation of the Apple Watch uses the same size fitting for the bands, so you can still get the new bands if you have an older model. You can get the regular watch band here and the Nike version here, and both cost $49.

      Microsoft is making Pride Type Covers for Surface PCs
      by Rich Woods

      Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Microsoft is producing new Type Covers and skins for its Surface PCs and celebrating the Pride community. While the company hasn't announced the new accessories just yet, leakster WalkingCat has discovered a video showing them off.

      The video shows a Type Cover that says 'Pride' in the traditional rainbow colors, and a skin with the multicolored stripes.

      Naturally, things like pricing and availability are unconfirmed, so if you want to get your hands on them, you'll have to wait. The PCs shown in the video are from the Surface Pro lineup, so it's also not clear if there will be variants of the Type Cover for the Surface Go, or if there will be variants of the skin for other Surface PCs.

      The anniversary of the Stonewall Riots is on June 28, so it seems likely that we'll learn more about Microsoft's plans for these accessories closer to that date.

      Apple's gay pride watch face blocked in Russia
      by Sharath Ravishankar

      Apple has long been a proponent for gay pride and empowerment, what with its CEO being an openly gay man. This has been reflected, for instance, with this band for the Apple Watch.

      The Watch also has a special watch face in tandem with this accessory - a vertical strip of colors representing gay pride - that has, as of the past couple months, been blocked in Russia. Mounting reports from users in the country speak of this option simply not existing on both the Watch app on their respective iPhones, as well as on the Watches themselves.

      Further investigation by iOS developer Guilherme Rambo have revealed that the pride watch face is hardcoded to vanish for users in Russia locales. This was confirmed by the good folks from The Verge, who observed this phenomenon by changing their iOS device's location to Russia.

      As disappointing as this move must be for many, this does come in light of Russia's rising intolerance against the gay community, which reached its peak when the country passed an anti-gay propaganda law in 2013. Incidentally, the aforementioned watch band isn't being sold in Russia either, so it's easy to come to the conclusion that Apple is simply looking to avoid litigation. The company has released no statement so far on this matter.

      Twitch streamer masquerades UFC 218 live event as game stream
      by Timi Cantisano

      Over the years, watching other people play video games has become quite popular, with Twitch being one of the main platforms users have come to rely on when showing off their skills. Despite it being a streaming platform for user-created content, the service has been used in the past to stream copyrighted materials like sports matches and more.

      While these typically get flagged and removed, it looks like one enterprising streamer had a bit of fun over the weekend, broadcasting UFC 218, which was the rematch bout between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo, while making it look like he was actually playing a game. The broadcaster, AJ Lester, was fully equipped with control in hand, headphones on, and also had reactions to the action as well. You can see a small clip of the action above, as Lester has now removed the stream from his Twitch channel.

      Although this is comical and has gained Lester a moment of internet fame, there is the possibility that he could be facing some serious consequences. For now, he has stated that he has not heard anything in regards to copyright violations.

      Samsung announces VR Live Pass
      by Paul Hill



      Samsung has announced VR Live Pass for Gear VR, an initiative which will allow users to stream live events to their Gear VR from new partners including UFC, X Games and Live Nation. The live events will be immersive broadcasts from sporting and music events among other things. Samsung will launch Live Pass through the Samsung VR app in early June.

      Younghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics, said:

      Events will begin broadcasting in June with some already being announced, they include:

      UFC 212: Aldo vs Holloway, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 3, 2017. X Games Minneapolis, USA July 13 – 16, 2017: the event includes BMX riders and skaters including Jimmy Wilkins, Chad Kerley and Jagger Eaton. Live Music Concert with International Artists, USA August 2017. One warning that should be noted, however, is that the UFC 212 main card, including the fight mentioned above, won’t be available for users in the US and New Zealand. Gear VR users in those regions will only be able to watch the UFC Fight Pass preliminaries.
