That opponent is Khabib Nurmagomedov, a Russian fighter who just happens to hold the longest undefeated streak in MMA history, with 26 straight victories. The pair will clash at UFC 229 for the UFC Lightweight Championship, scheduled for the 6th October at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas. The fight didn’t need the sideshow of McGregor’s arrest, it was going to be a huge draw regardless.
It has been something of a slow build, perhaps going all the way back to Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015, but heavyweight boxing seems to be at the very top of the sport once again. A series of fortuitous events, such as Fury vacating the titles, coupled with bona fide stars emerging at the top of the division has created a perfect storm for heavyweight boxing in 2018.
Two big title fights will take place in March. First up, Deontay Wilder (c) will face Luis Ortiz for the WBC heavyweight title in New York on the 3rd March. Wilder is favourite with bookmakers to retain, currently available at odds of 2/5. Ortiz can be widely backed at a price of 2/1.
3 years ago my brothers and I pooled our money together to buy my father a special gift for his 60th birthday. We got him a 60″ TV and what we thought was a nice TV stand to put it on. All was well until the Alphaline Glass and Metal TV Stand purchased at Sears crumbled into a million pieces, destroying the TV in the process. Read the rest of this entry »
Thanks to Gillette, I had the pleasure of speaking with Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie Tight End OJ Howard and his very proud father Kareem.

When it comes to the sport of boxing, many people would question its nobility. This is especially the case with today’s boxing where boxers take hype to the next level.

Thanks to the greatest boxing films ever made, they are able to overlook the hype and explore the very foundation and morals that make that boxer great. Some of those films include:

The good people at Naked Nutrition reached out to me and asked me to give their pre-workout supplement, Naked Energy, a try. While I work out regularly, I generally don’t use supplements of any kind. I’ll crush a protein bar after one or two workouts a week, but that’s about it. Regardless, I gave Naked Energy a go.
Side Effects: B-
With only 10 premium, non GMO ingredients, Naked Nutrition’s Naked Energy is for the health conscious go-getter who wants that extra “umph” before their workout. While I wasn’t a fan of the taste, I did feel a sense of alertness and energy that I didn’t have a half hour prior to ingesting the supplement. I made the mistake one morning of taking Naked Energy on an empty stomach, and got a wicked headache, but otherwise Naked Energy did the trick.
For $39.99 you get 50 servings, which should last you about 2 months. If you’re interested, you can scoop a tub of Naked Energy here, or order through Amazon.com.
Ice Cube’s Big3 Basketball League made a pit stop in Chicago a couple of weeks ago on Sunday, July 23, and like many basketball fans I was intrigued. I searched online for tickets, and found out through Ticketmaster that I could sit courtside for $750, second row for $250, 3rd row for $75, or a few sections back for $20. After unsuccessfully asking multiple friends to cop tickets and join me, I came across a Groupon for $45 floor seats, purchased 2 and dragged my wife to the UIC Pavilion on a Sunday afternoon. To say it was an underwhelming experience would be an understatement. Read the rest of this entry »
