At 4:38 of the first round, Tyron Woodley KO’d Josh Koscheck with a huge right hand at UFC 167. Woodley had previously landed a fury of punches that put Koscheck seconds from a KO, but Koscheck managed to survive the flurry. About a minute and thirty seconds later it was all over.

Dez Bryant scored some major PR points Thursday night.  The PS4 officially launches at midnight, but some stores allowed people to line up early and purchase the much awaited next-gen system.  Cowboys oft-criticized receiver acted like Kenny Claus from Eastbound and Down when he picked up the cost of six PS4’s for random strangers.  Check out the photo after the jump:

drugs OK nfl

In this cartoon by Signe Wilkinson, she lays out the perception many have of the NFL. And I couldn’t agree more.

I sent out a tweet yesterday that was originally meant for a few laughs, but unfortunately it’s true.  The NFL cares more about bullying than drug use.  It’s not an opinion, it’s just the facts.  Seriously.

With the last race of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season coming in a few days,  it’s time to look back and some of the highlights of the season.

The 2013 NASCAR season has definitely had more drama than a soap opera, and even included the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, Brad Keselowski, not making into the Chase for the Sprint Cup to defend his title. The last time this happened was in 2006 when Tony Stewart failed to make the Chase a year after his second championship.
