Vitor again with a 1200 testosterone level. What a piece of ######. I hope he gets destroyed by Weidman. I predict a third round stoppage. I want DC to win, but man he better be careful. Johnson has some crazy power. I predict a surprise submission in the second round. Probably not. Haha.

Chris Weidman went 5 rounds against Machida and won. Post-TRT Vitor, two years removed from his last fight, just isn't the kind of guy that can beat him 9 out of 10 times. Weidman's testosterone levels were also "weird" for a guy his age. As for DC, he's coming in on short notice and, truth be said, he hasn't fought anyone before that had that kind of power in their hands. If he makes it a grinding affair, he can attempt to out gas Rumble. But a stopped takedown could spell disaster for him. Some good punches and gameplaning starts to get tricky.

This was pathetic. Vitor had NOTHING outside of that 30 second burst at the start. He faded incredibly fast and got mauled easily. As he stands, he's nothing without TRT.

 

As for the main event, Rumble got me believing when he landed that first hard punch... and then he gassed badly almost immediately so it was all a matter of time until he got wrecked. Still, that version of DC isn't improved to the point where he can beat Jones when he returns. Also, that manufactured animosity between Bader and DC is getting old pretty fast.

 

The rest of the card was alright. Dodson got gifted a decision that he didn't deserve, didn't really make his case for the next title shot. Burkman has zero fight IQ, which only dumps on WSOF for having him as their champion. Uriah Hall is a complete bust.

 

Browne vs.Arlovski was AWESOME.

Condit looks good. Hopefully he beats Alves and lines himself up for a title shot.

Yep. And looking like he never left. Lentz vs Oliveira was also pretty great. Apart from some prelims fights, the rest of the card was a straight up garbage fire that lasted over 6 hours with horrible pacing.

UFC Fight Night: Boetsch vs. Henderson was awesome beyond words.

 

That whole card, top to bottom, delivered in spades. And it was free!

A bad night for the Mexicans! Lack of altitude training really hurt Cain. He'll be back though. Probably get a rematch in Las Vegas and reclaim the title. Werdum looked very good, but I still think Cain on top form will have him. He just suffered big time with the altitude yesterday.

Don't forget about ring rust. His last fight was in 2013. This is ultimately good for the HW division since Werdum clearly isn't made of glass.

Every day is a good day to watch that fight. Especially today, to wash out the bad taste that the Melendez vs. Alvarez fight left in our mouths.

      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.
