Bellator has kind of been my methadone while the UFC events are taking a break. It has provided some interesting moments but they still struggle with a lack of talent at the top.

ONE FC is going places. They're still a very small organizations, only had 3 events so far and are pretty much all-Asian based but are they delivering. This was the main event and it quite a nice fight. I wonder how long will it be before the UFC extends an offer to these fighters.

And like I predicted with my friend

UFC 146: Frank Mir Ready To Step In For Alistair Overeem

JDS pounding Mir' face off like he did to Carwin would be a great show, sure. But goddamn, the Overeem fight was going to be challenging! Maybe it was tainted horse meat... GODDAMN IT! :angry:

In a lighter tone, have you seen Overeem's girlfriend? She's tiny. With that much testosterone coursing through him... :rofl:

Thiago Alves vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama Targeted for July UFC Event

What? :huh:

Despite losing 4 straight fights, despite dropping to WW and getting outboxed by JAKE ****ING SHIELDS, he still gets another fight? One would think he would get an accessible fight (there are no easy fights at WW) so they have him fight Thiago Alves? A guy who was pouding Martin Kampmann's face in until he had a brain fart? Oh lord... Akiyama's face is going to get ****ed up.

UFC Offers Hector Lombard A Contract, Bellator May Counter

It's about time. But still, I don't think Lombard can crack the Top 10. He's a strong puncher but most of his fights in Bellator ended by KO due to dumb decisions like standing flat footed and trading with him. Brian Stann would be a good choice to welcome him to the Octagon.

To my friends and fans,

I am deeply saddened to announce that on Friday, April 20, I respectfully withdrew from the May 26 event so that I can request a continuance until my situation with the Nevada State Athletic Commission is resolved.

I cannot express how sorry I am to the Commission, Junior Dos Santos, the fans, the owners and employees of the UFC, my friends and family and anyone else who this has affected.

I absolutely do not believe in, nor do I use performance-enhancing drugs. I am a clean fighter and I will do whatever it takes to prove this to everyone.

Prior to the UFC 146 press conference in March, I aggravated an old rib injury on my left side. My doctor prescribed, and I accepted, an anti-inflammatory medication that was mixed with testosterone. I was completely unaware that testosterone was one of the ingredients in the medication. Although I was unaware, I do realize it is my job to know what I am putting into my body.

I respect the Nevada Commissioners and Executive Director Keith Kizer and what they are doing to keep

the sport of mixed martial arts regulated and safe for athletes. I look forward to working with them in the days and weeks ahead.

Friends and fans, I ask for your patience as I work through this matter. Please support me. I promise to return to the Octagon soon.[/indent]

So you took an anti-inflamatory medicine that also gave you the sexual prowess of 10 men? What's the name of it and why isn't it sold-out in farmacies all across the world? How much of it did you use for a 14:1 ratio?

Mu?oz is fighting Chris Weidman... damn. There goes my plan. It's a straight jump into a title shot there. Also 148 will be a double-header. (Two 25 minute decisions? Oh lordie, what where they thinking?)

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- If UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem, who was recently handed a nine-month suspension due to the elevated levels of testosterone, wants to continue with an MMA career, he better get used to drug testing more than ever, according to UFC president Dana White.

"I?ll tell you what, if he didn?t like being tested before, wait until he sees what his life is like now," White said between bites of a burger at a media luncheon at The Palm restaurant. "He?s going to be tested all the time."

White was in Brazil on Tuesday during the Nevada Athletic Commission hearing and was mostly out of the loop until he came back to the United States. In that meeting, Overeem claimed he didn?t know what was in an anti-inflammatory given to him by Dr. Hector Oscar Molina. Overeem, who had already been pulled out of his planned title shot at heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, was suspended nine months.

"I just found this out this morning," said White. "I landed at four in the morning, I didn?t know what the hell happened. Apparently, he got suspended for nine months and he said he was taking anti-inflammatory shots. Well, you should have gone in and told the commission that before you got drug tested. You don?t say it after you get busted for elevated testosterone levels. Period. Pretty simple. The rules are cut and clear.

"If you are taking anything, at all, you tell the commission. If you are taking too many aspirin a day, tell the commission ?I?m taking nine aspirin a day because my neck hurts.? I?m taking anti-inflammatory,? ?I?m on TRT,? whatever."

Overeem?s suspension runs through Dec. 27. While some Internet conspiracy theorists have noted the UFC regularly runs big events in Las Vegas on New Year?s Eve weekend, and technically, Overeem could be in the clear to fight on that card, that?s highly unlikely from a logistical standpoint. Overeem would not be able to re-apply for a license in Nevada until after his suspension is up, and big events require months of advance planning and legwork.

White is willing to wait and see how things play out with the disgraced fighter. But he can?t hide his anger at how things went down.

"He?s gonna have to do a suspension," White said. "We?ll see what happens. I?m just ****ed off that he lied to us.

"I am not an Alistair Overeem fan at all."

No two 25 minute decisions this time. Cruz will KO that panty Urijah and Silva will be boss in short fashion.

Cruz KO someone? The guy who constantly breaks his hands? :rofl:

Since becoming champions he's not even come close to a TKO and he's going to KO Faber? Not a chance.

I knew I'd get your attention when going against any TAM members :rofl:

Yeah, it will be snore fest with fancy footwork but I still don't see it going to Urijah.

Of course not. But still, Cruz isn't going to KO him. If Aldo didn't do it, Cruz sure as hell isn't. That's a job for future BW champion Renan Bar?o and future BW title challenger Michael McDonald.

      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.
