Out of nowhere, some new company called URshow's announced a show happening next month that's got MMA, grappling, boxing, and wrestling all on the same card. https://www.urshow.tv/Events/UR%20Fight On the MMA side, they've got Ken Shamrock vs. Dan Severn (they're also running a contest where someone gets to be in Shamrock's corner), and the grappling match is Chael Sonnen vs. Michael Bisping (one way for Chael to get around his ban).

What a disaster.

The whole event was a major disaster. Scott Coker left Strikeforce with at least some credibility. But since taking over at Bellator, he's lost every ounce of it. Bellator 149 should have never happened, at least not with those 2 main events. Dana White claims he didn't see it, but he's probably laughing his ass off at what a joke MMA is becoming outside of the UFC.

So apparently Dos Anjos broke his foot and now Connor is fighting Nate Diaz who has only had about 10 days to prepare.

 

Should be interesting. Connor is predicting a first round K.O.

10 days to prepare against McGregor..  should be interesting.   Diaz has the size.. but McGregor is on a roll.

I'm watching that URshow URfight event right now, and the MMA match was a car crash. I'm guessing both Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn backed out, as it's actually Mavrick Harvey (8-4) vs. Shannon Ritch (53-79 - seriously), it lasted less than two minutes, and this was the only highlight...

...ok, I just found out that Shamrock backed out of the MMA fight first and got replaced by Tank Abbott, who then failed the medical. :wacko: http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/3/19/11264824/dan-severn-######-at-no-balls-ken-shamrock-for-pulling-out-of-their So they replaced it with a jobber vs. someone who hadn't fought professionally in over 8 years + two local fighters getting some exposure. What a farce.

 

Oh, and the grappling match between Bisping and Sonnen was a boring draw.

He was trolling in a way. He put a post up on his facebook explaining it.

 

Long and short of it his he thinks all the media stuff the UFC wants him to do is getting in the way of his training for fights, which he used as an excuse for losing against Nate.

And surprise surprise, Zuffa found a way to ###### up last night...

 

 

Seriously, they banned what many people would say is the best MMA journalist around just because he broke the Brock Lesnar news (and the McGregor/Diaz rematch) before they did. :angry:

Without knowing the full details there could be a legit reason, let's not overreact now 

They could have easily broken an NDA on purpose to be "First!" or there could be other reasons

      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.
