So Henderson will come in a beast and Fedor will come in fat? That's going to go well.

You'd think that they would give Fedor someone easier to beat and break the loosing streak. That or they are trying to pump up Henderson for some bizarre reason by beating Fedor

For credibility reasons of all things they can't just cancel the ridiculous HW tournament and do Overeem vs Fedor like everyone wanted. Dan Henderson is getting paid a fortune by Strikeforce so they must put him to use so they can claim they didn't waste money. Fedor only has 1 more fight in his contract I think and with Dana White taking over the reigns of the renegociations, things aren't going to end well for M-1 so they might as well make bank. Rumor has it that Fedor is getting 1.5 million for this fight. Henderson is just going to style all over him. Just compare a picture of JDS weighting in at 225 and Fedor at 225 when fighting Bigfoot. He's chubby as all hell. Henderson on the other hand, should be fine. He doesn't even need to cut weight.

Miesha Tate vs Marloes Coenen is going down at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson. Dat ass!

Also I don't know if I can post it here but there's an interesting pic that Brian Caraway posted of Miesha Tate (he's her boyfriend and also fights out of Team Alpha Male) on his Twitter. I think DAMN! describes it pretty well. Google should do the trick.

Speaking of female fighters....When will Cyborg see a real challenge? I guess she could fight Frankie Edgar in a UFC/SF cross promotion fight? :p Maybe take on GSP? Really though, she has no equal.

As for B-League MMA, I'm pretty thrilled to see Patricio Freire take on Joe Warren. That should be an interesting fight. If Freire wins, I'd not be surprised if he ends up getting signed by the UFC or Strikeforce at some point in the next year or so...Well, SF so long as they don't get folded into the UFC in the next year after the Zuffa purchase ;).

Both Warren and Freire (Patricio, not the other weirdly named ones) should be signed to the UFC to spice up the FW division that is dwindling in competitive matchups pretty quickly with everyone and their mother dropping down to FW to escape the LW shark tank.

As for Cyborg, there is no real competition for her in woman's MMA. She's a beast at 145 and she probably cuts down from 160 something to that. If she fought at 135lb should could probably find more opponents but I doubt she can make weight. Gina is coming back to MMA but she's lightyears away from being able to credibly challenge Cyborg. That's the problem with being overly dominant in a shallow division. You run out of opponents pretty quickly.

Looks like she's crushing people at the BJJ Mundials. I'm sure they weight the same but they're nowhere in the same league in terms of pure strength.

Oh now SI is telling that she was cleared to fight but chose to withdraw link here.

Anyone want to bet against me that the reason was "I can't make weight unless I cut off a leg" ?

Dana White has been busy. From now on, all UFC main events will be five rounds. Woohoo? Who wants to see Fitch grind on some guy for five rounds?

Well, saw the Overeem vs Werdum event. It wasn't bad... but very far froom good. I'm kidding. It was crap. The fights were crap and the main event... Cecil Peoples was one of the judges. Surprise?

Josh Barnett raped Rogers as expected. He's nowhere near Top 20 talent, no matter how you paint it. Valentijn Overeem tapped to strikes and is a big sissy. Daniel Cormier continues to show improvement and I hope he gets transfered to the UFC soon.

As for the main event, it looked like Maia vs Silva again with Werdum trying to get Overeem in his guard over and over with lame takedowns and pull downs. But he did light him up a couple of times and, AFAIC, won the fight. 2 30-27 scores? Really?

The judge had to be drunk and dyslexic to score any win for Werdum, sorry Overeem won that fight no question at all, hell Werdum was gassed halfway through the first round! Yes he did get some good shots in, but no where close to winning that fight. Overeem played Werdum for a fool the whole fight

Maybe not a win but 30-27? Werdum was the agressor in the first round, even considering all the flopping around. One could argue here for ages but what's the use, it was a very bad "fight" by any criteria possible. Dana should just swoop in there and give Strikeforce the mercy killing it deserves.

So... someone booked a Ken Shamrock vs James Toney fight. Wikipedia says it's UFC 135 but that's totall BS. It's probably Titan FC, current home of the best freakshow fights.

yeah its not UFC

Toney's trainer Trever Sherman confirmed the matchup to MMA Fighting.

BJPenn.com first reported the matchup, attaching it to a September 23 date in El Paso, Texas. Sherman, though, said to his knowledge, neither a date or location has been finalized. He said that Toney, Shamrock, their management teams and event promoters would meet this Saturday night to further discuss particulars.

"The earliest date as I know it would be late September, and the latest would be late October," said Sherman, who added that Texas, California and Nevada were the three potential sites discussed, with Texas as the most likely destination.

Also undecided is whether the match will take place under an established promotion, or as a stand-alone event of fights offered on pay-per-view. Sherman further mentioned that a reality series could be attached to the bout.

Don't be like that. Did you see the Mariusz Pudzianowski vs James Thompson fight? For a freakshow, it ended up being quite interesting. I love the moment when Thompson is clearly out but since he doesn't fall down, Pudz wakes him up with another punch.

I am just remembering the James Toney fight against Randy and how bad it was

      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.
