Just heard about Bellator 138 over the weekend; Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice as the main event and a lot of people are screaming "FIX!". What do you all think?

Bellator wasn't in on it, but it's clearly a fix. Choke in, hooks in, Kimbo doesn't know how to defend, and Ken just gives it up. Meh, dominating position? Who needs it.

Machida looked shot to ###### as soon as the 2nd round started. He should retire or just start fighting former champions at Franklinweight.

 

Also, Bellator 139 had a massive KO as well. Hisaki Kato, a MASSIVE underdog, pulled the upset.

If Mendes has been secretly preparing for this (because he knows Aldo is made of glass), Connor is going to have a very hard fight in his hands. Aldo would be hard as well, but he can't wrestle worth a damn. Will we be seeing the second TAM champion arise?

Also, the Reebok uniforms are out and they SUCK. Seems like everything Reebok touches turns to crap. CrossFit already sucked enough before Reebok got its hands on it and now it sucks beyond belief.

Gilbert Melendez fails UFC 188 drug test, suspended one year

 

 

... ######!

 

You were supposed to be the chosen one!!!!!!

 

Gilbert always seemed like a guy that could (once in a blue moon) get popped for weed. But exogenous testosterone in a fight that he lost to a badly injured Eddie Alvarez? Goddamn' it.

Biggest PPV of the year is coming up. Weigh-in is tomorrow. Very excited about this card. Solid, top to bottom. The only "blemish" I can point out is that Matt Brown is going to fight Tim Means in the prelims instead of Brandon Thatch on the Main Card. That would be a beautifully violent fight.

Gotta feel bad for Mendez, he's being used as a sacrificial lamb after Aldo pussied out of a real challenge

Gotta feel bad for Mendez, he's being used as a sacrificial lamb after Aldo pussied out of a real challenge 

 

The consensus #1 guy in the division that just couldn't fight Aldo in the near future because he had already lost twice, albeit the second time was pretty close?

 

That's not a sacrificial lamb. Sacrificial lambs are the TUF Latin America guys getting thrown to guys like Cody Garbrandt. Or Gunnar having to gameplan for Thatch on short notice.

 

Chad Mendes probably was keeping himself ready for this anyway because Aldo is notoriously brittle, despite his P4P greatness. It's a competitive fight. It's not a Invicta FC title mauling.

And this was just the second best knee on this card. Thomas Almeida proved that he is more than just a guy with a padded record crushing cans in regional shows. He is legit.

This is tomorrow and... nobody cares. It has received close to zero promotional stuff on the UFC's social media channels.

 

On the other hand... UFC 190 is going to be BIG. And UFC 189 was massive on the PPV side of things (the lower bound is 700k buys).

      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.
