Yeah! I have no idea why we have to get it via tape delay!

Also they've got John Gooden & Dan Hardy on commentary. Respect to Hardy as a fighter but those 2 must be the worst commentators in MMA!

Made me chuckle that Cro Cop came out for the fight first. Usually the "favourite" comes out 2nd. I guess Gonzaga was the "favourite" here! :rofl:

This doesn't really do anything in the HW division because CroCop isn't really a challenger anymore

Yeah, had he not got the TKO, I think he would have lost 30-27 on all the cards.

Last night's event was GLORIOUS.

Holloway submitting Swanson probably puts him out of contention for good unless he reinvents himself.

Still a pretty awesome guy and will stay in the division for long.

 

The Paige VanZant fight was pretty fun. Not a good fight, but fun. It was sloppy and raw, I kind of expected Felice to use her experience and bully Paige around. She got tooled pretty good. Still, Herig is a lousy measuring stick. I'd like to see VanZant against someone like Angela Hill before they start the hype train rolling (Joanna would break her in half).

Albuquerque Police Seek UFC Fighter for Questioning

UFC fighter Jon Jones sought for questioning.

The Albuquerque Police Department is actively seeking UFC Fighter Jon Jones for questioning in regards to his possible involvement in a hit-and-run accident, near the intersection of Juan Tabo and Southern, in Southeast Albuquerque early this morning, April 26, 2015.

A pregnant female in her 20s, who was the driver of a separate vehicle, was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries.

Officers attempted to contact Mr. Jones at his residence Sunday evening, but were unsuccessful. We have also reached out to his lawyer, but as of now, have not heard back.

The Albuquerque Police Department is asking Mr. Jones to please contact us as we continue to investigate by calling (505) 242-COPS (2677).

More information will be provided when it becomes available.

.... oh man. :(

 

I thought that someone was innocent until proven guilty? Unless he confessed to doing it already?

 

Damn.

Right move to strip him of the title. 

 

Too much evidence against Jones to not to act right away.

Report: Khabib out for 5 months with meniscus tear

 

So Khabib is out for another 5 months and they put Makdessi in against Cerrone (LOL). The LW division just went down the toilet again, just when things seemed to be picking up.

Last night's main event was hard to watch. Hunt gassed in the first 30 seconds (he was coming in HEAVY as hell). After that, it was a complete beatdown for 5 rounds. Should've been stopped sooner. Probably shortened Mark's already short future career by a couple of years.

Hunt looked more fat than ever this time around. I am glad Miocic thrashed him around.

 

Cannot wait for this event. I will be in the Philippines next year at this time so I hope they do good numbers so they go back. It would be amazing to see them in person over there. Go Munoz. I like both Edgar and Faber. It is tough to pick one that I want to win. Probably Edgar by unanimous decision though.

Hunt's longevity in the fight game is astounding considering his diet. Still, this didn't do that much for Miocic since the performance certainly wasn't something people are craving to see again. This probably ended up lowering his stock with the fans. He should probably get booked against Overeem next. If they decide to do something crazy, give him Mitrione if he beats Rothwell. (If not, book the winner of Mitrione vs Rothwell against the winner of Duffee vs Mir.)

 

Faber has a modicum of trouble dealing with faster fighters and Edgar is as fast as they come at 145. Unless he can grab his neck in a guillotine, Edgar is probably going to tee off on his chin for 5 rounds.

 

The UFC will certainly return to the Philippines while continuing their Asian expansion plans It's a huge market but they still need a start to rally behind now that Mark Mu

I dont follow or participate MMA, I know some of the biggest names, but thats it.  Too many broken bones which are arthritic to try that kind of "training" now.

I wanted to post tonight because I saw a bar fight which impressed the hell out of me.  Let me preface by saying, when younger, I loved to get into fights.  I had an older brother who was huge and made a reputation for himself - I always felt I had something to prove... regardless - I fought a lot before guns were so common.  Back then, the worst thing that could happen was you get charges pressed against you and/or sued.

ANYWAY - the barfight I watched tonight had some guy of normal size (same as me and I'm 6'0" 180) and a bigger guy (about 6'3" 200-220 or so)  The younger guy knew what he was doing and embarassed the bigger guy when they started scrapping.  The smaller guy clearly practiced some form of MMA - the other guy looked like a windmilling bitch.

The thing that came to mind is "I sure am glad MMA wasnt popular when I was young" - the smallest, most nonthreatening guys will turn you into a human pretzel; and if you're lucky - they'll stop before anything is broken or dislocated.  Good MMA practitioners are some bad ass dudes in street fights.

Thats All - just have respect for those who participate.  NO Respect for the douches who think wearing an Affliction shirt makes you tough.

      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.
