It’s been quite a ride for Conor McGregor over the last couple of years. He climbed to the very top of MMA again, winning our respect by becoming a two-weight champion. He took part in a much-derided, money-spinning boxing venture against Floyd Mayweather. He got arrested after attacking a bus full of UFC fighters, due to a perceived ‘beef’ with his upcoming opponent.

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.

Sage Northcutt is the mother fucking truth.  It’s OK if you haven’t heard of him yet- he doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page, but the 19-year-old kid has enough martial arts World Championships to cover an entire wall where he trains.  He recently dismantled Francisco Trevino in just 57 seconds at UFC 192 on Saturday night, and is poised to take over the lightweight division.  I’m not jumping the gun here.  Check out the highlights from this weekend: Read the rest of this entry »

When asked about how her upcoming fight with challenger Holly Holm was going to be different from her previous fights, Ronda Rousey had a hilarious choice of words.  It’s a little NSFW, but hilarious nonetheless.  Check out the video after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »
