Ahead of his rematch with Max Holloway at UFC 218, Jose Aldo was asked if he was nervous about his weight cut. Aldo had to drop trou and weigh in a second time to make the 145 pound limit.
Aldo answered, “I knew I was in the right weight but I like to play that just to fuck the grave digger’s ass.”
Huh, okay. To be fair, maybe something was lost in translation. Confused like the rest of us, the interviewer asked the translator for a little clarification.
“He likes to pretend he’s dead to fuck the grave digger straight up in the ass.”
Oh! Yea! Now I… no, that makes no sense at all.
Conor McGregor does what the fook he wants. Unless he wants to punch an Irish cartel member in the face. Then, he probably should not do what the fook he wants.
A rumor came out earlier this week that McGregor got into a bar fight in Ireland, where he allegedly punched multiple people. One of those men may have been an associate of a senior Kinahan cartel member. The Kinahan cartel, based out of Dublin, have ties to “Colombian and Mexican Cartels as well as the Russian Mafia.” The cartel are reportedly seeking $900K from McGregor, or they’re going to shoot him.
The news started out as just a rumor on Reddit, but has picked up a lot of steam in recent days. Irish crime reporter Paul Williams weighed in on McGregor’s options (via Balls.ie):
Conor McGregor is in a very dangerous place at the moment. He has come into conflict through probably no fault of his own, with a group of very, very dangerous people who are tied up with the Kinahans. These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is, they will drag him down into the cesspit.
I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he still in the country – and I understand that he may have left the country – but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety. This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.
McGregor might be an icon in Ireland, but based on every gangster flick I’ve ever seen, that shit doesn’t matter. Even if the only truthful part of this story is that McGregor got into a bar fight, that’s still a terrible look for a guy of McGregor’s status.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s out of control. He’s made millions of dollars being out of control.
The magnitude of this threat either hasn’t hit McGregor, isn’t real to begin with, or he truly doesn’t give a fook.
— RTÉ News (@rtenews) November 30, 2017
That’s McGregor leaving an Irish courthouse, where he had to pay a fine for speeding. He’s not exactly making his whereabouts a secret.
All of this is just another ploy by McGregor so he doesn’t have to defend his lightweight title.
Marshawn Lynch is the best. He plays chicken with buses and hangs out in the crowd after being ejected from the game. There’s no point in trying to figure out what Marshawn is thinking or doing because he’s an enigma.
Marshawn has sat for the national anthem this entire season. He probably sat during the national anthem last season as well, even though he wasn’t in the league. His head coach, Jack del Rio, says it’s “just Marshawn being Marshawn,” which is not entirely untrue. It’s also not entirely true, because Marshawn is a smart guy is obviously doing this as a form of protest.
While Lynch sat for the American national anthem, he stood for the national anthem of Mexico. The Raiders met the Patriots in Mexico City, which is why both national anthems were played. This didn’t sit too well with Donald Trump.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2017
This dude is really still blaming players kneeling as the reason why ratings and attendance are down? No one is tuning out because Marshawn Lynch sits during the national anthem. They’re tuning out because a star gets injured every Sunday and who the hell wants to watch the Packers without Aaron Rodgers?
Maybe Trump should worry more about his approval rating than NFL ratings. He knows that he’s bringing more attention to it with his childish tweets, right? I didn’t know Marshawn stood for the national anthem of Mexico until I saw this story. And I still don’t care.
I’m all for the Raiders benching Marshawn, but not because he sits for the anthem. He looks every bit like a 30-year-old running back with over 2,000 carries to his name.
Come on, Donald. Your Patriots roughed up the Raiders down in Mexico City. Isn’t that enough? They went to Mexico City and did what you’ve been failed to do this past year. They built a wall around the Raiders offense and prevented them from entering the endzone.
Back in 1996, when NFL legend Peyton Manning was just a 19-year-old phenom at the University of Tennessee, he was involved in a sexual assault scandal that could have ended his career before it got off the ground.
The alleged incident occurred while Manning was being examined by UT athletic trainer Jaime Naughright.
At the time, Manning maintained that he never made physical contact with Naughright, and simply pulled his pants down in order to "moon" a nearby teammate.
Speaking with Inside Edition today, Naughright claimed the former Colts and Broncos quarterback was lying in his statement to authorities:
“I felt something on my face and Peyton had pulled his shorts down and sat his anus and his testicles on my face,” she said in her first TV interview.
“So I pushed him up and out. He turned around, pulled his shorts back up.”
“I was repulsed. I was scared. I was intimidated. … It was definitely a predator — intimidating, anger, violent eyes that he had.”
The Inside Edition segment also features footage from a deposition in which a young Manning offers his version of events.
“I briefly pulled down my pants to so-called ‘moon’ him,” Manning said.
“One second, one-and-a-half seconds. Pulled my pants back up and continued with Jamie’s examination of the bottom of my foot.”
Naughright settled with the university for $300,000 in 1998.
She says she felt compelled to speak out in the wake of sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein and other influential men.
You can watch her first interview in its entirety below:
Colin Kaepernick will probably never play football again, but he’s about to be a full-time writer.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback signed a Random House imprint One World for $1 million. Hey, good for him. He just can just million dollar book deals even though he’s not a writer. That gives me hope that I’ll be able to sign a million dollar deal to play for the Carolina Panthers.
Signing the deal is cool and all, but now you actually have to write, Kaep. Let me tell you, it’s much tougher than it looks. Maybe you should hire a ghostwriter. But seriously, do you need a ghostwriter?
While nothing is known about Kaepernick’s upcoming book, it’s safe to say that it will chronicle his life as an unemployed football player who caused the President to threaten to shut down the league. Maybe it’ll have some stuff about his Super Bowl run with the 49ers, but we’ll just skip to the kneeling part.
Even though he hasn’t landed a NFL job, Kaepernick has been the big winner since he started to take a knee. He’s become a martyr for the league and is far more important now than he would be if signed with a team as a backup quarterback. And I think Colin realizes this. He could sign on as a backup, but then what? He keeps kneeling, maybe people are upset, but eventually, everyone realizes that it doesn’t matter.
But if he remains without a team. Then there’s a rallying cry. “SIGN KAEP!” And he knows this. He also knows that if he remains silent, people want more. That’s why he held out for a million dollar book deal instead of doing an interview with Bob Costas.
I give the guy credit. He took a fledgling NFL career and transformed himself into the most talked about non-player in history.
But seriously, do you need a ghostwriter?
The Thursday night NFL game is usually trash. Teams have a short week of practice, guys get injured, and it’s generally bad football. Last night’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Oakland Raiders was actually good. It was a back-and-forth affair between the two best teams in the AFC West, Derek Carr threw a game-winning touchdown pass as time expired, and Andy Reid looked sad. It was the perfect Thursday Night Football game.
It also had Marshawn Lynch. He’s the guy that makes everything better no matter what the situation.
He enhanced last night’s game by running off the bench to defend a member of the other team, nearly body slamming a referee, and then watching the rest game from the stands.
Marshawn Lynch is the best.
Here’s the entire play:
Raiders QB Derek Carr gets hit with a late shot by Chiefs CB Marcus Peters. Some pushing and shoving occurs and here comes Marshawn, out of nowhere, to try and diffuse the situation. Carr is his quarterback, but Peters is his cousin. He just didn’t want the family fighting.
This would have been fine if he didn’t leave the sidelines and then pick up an official. So yeah, it wasn’t fine.
Lynch was ejected, but instead of hanging out in the locker room, he hung out with the people of Oakland.
— Dalai Llama (@Advantage_CT) October 20, 2017
To further prove he was a man of the people, instead of hanging out with his team to celebrate the victory, he just got on a train and headed home.

God bless Marshawn Lynch. I don’t know if he actually wants to play football anymore and I don’t care. As long as he provides us with moments like that. And like this:
I welcome Marshawn with open arms.
I’m not entirely sure what makes something qualify as a sport, but if rhythmic gymnastics gets to be one, then I guess it’s not that weird that the Global Association of International Sports Federation has decided pole dancing gets to be one. As reported by The Daily Telegraph, pole dancing and six other sports have been granted “Observer status,” which means it’s provisionally a sport. I guess calling it “provisional status” would be too easy.
The historic milestone means that the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF), founded by Katie Coates, 41, from Hertfordshire, is now able to apply for membership of the International Olympic Committee.
Yeah, pole dancing could be an Olympic sport. And here you thought beach volleyball was the sexiest of Olympic sports.
The IPSF, alongside armwrestling, dodgeball and a number of other events, now has two years to meet GAISF’s requirements to become a fully-recognised sport.
They include becoming compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and increasing their membership across the world.
Now, you might think that making pole dancing, dodgeball and arm wrestling Olympic sports is ridiculous, and you would be correct. Those are all stupid and none of them are sports. But they are far from the most ridiculous things to be Olympic sports, some of which I will now share with you.
The biathlon is a cross-country skiing event where skiers race to a rifle range, fire five shots at a target, and then have to ski an additional 150 meters for each shot they miss. This has been an Olympic event since 1960.
Handball, which is essentially soccer but you hold the ball in your hand and throw it instead of kicking it, thus removing the entire point of soccer, has been an Olympic event since 1972.
Sailing, which is literally just rich assholes racing yachts, has been an Olympic event since 1896.
Curling, which is awesome and I will not countenance any mockery of this sport of kings in my column, has been an Olympic sport since 1998.
So maybe pole dancing would be right at home in the Olympics. Dressage is an Olympic event where you make a horse dance, so why shouldn’t our hard-working strippers get a chance to bring home the gold? Also, a champagne room would really class up most Olympic venues.

Taking a cue from Kevin Durant, the wife of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell used faked accounts to defend her husband on Twitter. Jane Goodell says she did it out of “frustration and love,” which is typically what someone says after they hit their significant other, so let’s just be happy that she was only defending her man on Twitter.
Jane, who went by @forargument on Twitter, recently defended her husband in wake of the national anthem controversy, saying that Roger is doing what he can to cool the situation. If sending a letter to teams that says, “Move past it. But also, stand” is doing what he can, then he should try harder.
I imagine that it didn’t take much investigative work to figure out that the only person on Twitter defending Goodell was his wife. It was either her or Goodell himself.
I’m not even mad at Jane for making a fake account to defend her husband. That’s actually sweet of her. I wish my wife did that for me because people on Twitter can be very mean. I assume that plenty of people, especially famous people with family members of family people, have burner accounts. Hell, I have a burner account. I don’t use it to defend myself, I use it to say things that I can’t say as a decent human being and to troll.
Good luck finding it because 80 percent of Twitter is people saying things decent humans should not say and trolling.
I’m more upset that Goodell is bad at his job and the NFL has become unwatchable lately. The standing vs. kneeling debate has gotten so far off track that everyone has lost the plot, injuries are occurring at an alarming rate, and Goodell is dragging his feet with every major decision just so he continues to stay in the spotlight.
Maybe his wife should spend less time defending him on Twitter and more time whipping him into shape so he doesn’t completely kill off his audience.
Just after 3pm today, ESPN released a statement on the two-week suspension of SportsCenter host Jemele Hill.
It is not going over well.
To understand why she was suspended and also why the outcry over it is so powerful, you need to see the tweet that started it all.
ESPN tweeted out their statement on Jemele's suspension:
"Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines."
A second, you say?
The statement continues with the formal version of "we warned her about this."
"She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences. Hence this action."
First of all, we wish that the US Federal Government worked like this, in that politicians could get suspended (or potentially fired) for outrageously inflammatory tweets.
But second of all ... this message doesn't make any sense once you see what Jemele actually tweeted.
Obviously, everyone's first question was: "What did she tweet?"
ESPN spokesperson Josh Krulewitz answered.
As it turns out, Jemele engaged a couple of times in threads on Twitter about a potential boycott of companies that advertise with the Dallas Cowboys.
These were threads in which people were asking what they could do, aside from simply stopping watching Cowboys games, to express their ire and frustration over Jerry Jones' recent statements (which we'll get to in a moment).
Quoting one tweet from such a thread, Jemele tweeted:
"This play always works. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ's statement, boycott his advertisers."
She also tweeted, quoting a Twitter user who was concerned that not enough people in Dallas would be willing to boycott Cowboy games:
"Or, how about not patronizing the advertisers who support the Cowboys? You can watch and do that, right?"
Note that she wasn't encouraging a boycott of ESPN or even encouraging a boycott of the games, which she clarified in another tweet.
"Just so we're clear: I'm not advocating a NFL boycott. But an unfair burden has been put on players in Dallas & Miami w/ anthem directives."
She was literally just advising people on what is and is not effective in terms of making their voices heard against Jerry Jones.
Jerry Jones is the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, which is a football team.
Jerry has promised to bench any player who "disrespects the flag."
While in real life that might mean burning a flag or stomping on it or wearing one of those redneck flag shirts, in Jerry Jones' mind, it means kneeling silently during the National Anthem in protest against the killings of unarmed black Americans by police.
Obviously, Jerry Jones' statement is deeply controversial. To many, it puts players in an impossible position -- do they get fired for their beliefs, or do they sell out?
At a time when Vice President Mike Pence pulled a ridiculous stunt by flying out to a game, waiting until players knelt during the Anthem, and then leaving in a planned huff because they'd knelt.
Not only was this the goal from the beginning, but it cost taxpapers more than $200,000. All wasted for a gimmick.
Oh, and by leaving, Mike Pence was protesting ... which is literally exactly what he apparently can't stand about the football players.
Political polarization and the omnipresence of social media combine to make a lot of employees and employers nervous about tweets.
But while there are absolutely some warnings and suspensions that sound warranted, this one in particular has fans in shock.
It appears that ESPN's role as a sports news broadcaster is in conflict with its role as a sports broadcasting partner.
The latter could lose out if there's a boycott of any kind. The former, on the other hand, has an obligation to talk about all aspects of sports.
ESPN needs to figure out its priorities, but more urgently, they need to reinstate Jemele Hill.
Jemele, in the mean time, is getting her social media accounts bombarded by various MAGA trolls who accuse her of being a "black supremacist," among other things that we couldn't possibly repeat.
That's quite a way to add insult to injury.
Cam Newton just threw the biggest incomplete pass of his life.
Or something to that effect.
During a press conference this afternoon, the Carolina Panthers quarterback was asked a question by Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue about wide receiver Devin Funchess.
She wanted to know Newton's take on how the University of Michigan product has been embracing the physicality of routes and whether Newton got enjoyment out of that.
Instead, Newton got enjoyment out of the question itself.
Or, to be more sexist and specific, the person asking the question.
"It's funny to hear a female talk about routes like," he replied, smiling broadly. "It's funny.''
Thankfully, no one else in the room saw the humor.
Especially not Rodrigue.
"I don't think it's "funny" to be a female and talk about routes. I think it's my job," she later wrote on Twitter.
Did she approach Newton about the diss after the press gathering ended? Yup, and...
"I spoke with him after and it was worse. I chose not to share, because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from."
The reporter then followed up these Tweets with a more official statement that reads:
"This afternoon, I did my job as an NFL beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers.
"I was dismayed by his response, which not only belittled me but countless other women before me and beside me who work in similar jobs.
"I sought Mr. Newton out as he left the locker room a few minutes later. He did not apologize for his comments."
Newton has been famously prickly with the press in the past, cutting short his Super Bowl 50 post-game press conference after Carolina lost to Denver, for example.
He won the MVP in 2014.
In a statement, meanwhile, the NFL said "the comments are just plain wrong and disrespectful to the exceptional female reporters and all journalists."
Watch Newton laugh at something no one else finds funny below:
This past Sunday, when I watched football and saw that most NFL teams had made some sort of protest during the national anthem, my first thought was “I wonder what a fat, past his prime action star from the 80’s who was never anything more than a second-rate Schwarzenegger has to say about this.” Luckily, thanks to a fat, past his prime phone hacking reporter, I have my answer. Steven Seagal went on Good Morning Britain to complain about football players taking a knee to Piers Morgan, one of the only people who is more of an asshole than Steven Seagal.
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 27, 2017
Seagal did not disappoint, voicing one of the dumbest opinions on this that I’ve heard since… well, since the President of the United States weighed in on it, but at least in his case it was a distraction from him fomenting a nuclear war with North Korea. Uproxx had a transcript of Seagal’s comments.
“I believe in free speech. I believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t agree that they should hold the United States of America or the world hostage by taking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political view. I think it’s outrageous. I think it’s a joke. It’s disgusting. I respect the American flag, and I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag. I don’t understand or agree with this kind of behavior. I think it’s an outrage.”
Okay, so here’s the first thing. Steven Seagal apparently thinks his movies were real. Like, no one told him was an actor, I guess, and he thought he was really kickboxing against terrorists because he was a bad enough dude to save the president… I didn’t watch a lot of Steven Seagal movies, I preferred good action stars like Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan.
The other thing going on here is that players coming onto the field and standing for the national anthem is imposing a political view to begin with. You might not know this, but before 2009, NFL teams didn’t come out of the locker room until after the national anthem. They started doing so because the league got millions of dollars of taxpayer money from the Department of Defense and the National Guard to advertise for the military, and players standing for the anthem on the field is part of that advertisement. So while senate Republicans are trying to take away your health insurance and asking who is going to pay for the same single-payer health care that every other developed nation in the world has, remember that we’re paying football players to be on the field during the national anthem. And that, Steven Seagal, is the real outrage. Well, that and having paid full price to see Under Siege.
In an effort to unite America over the weekend, Donald Trump attacked football. I know you’re probably thinking that Trump is dividing the country with his comments about players kneeling for the national anthem, but let’s give Trump some credit. He knows that nothing brings the country together like being pissed off at him and football. So, he’s killing two birds with one stone. He’s making the United States pissed off at him over football.
Following Trump’s comments about firing NFL players who kneel during the anthem, teams released vague statements about “being united” and whatever. The statements are pretty meaningless given that most of them don’t even mention Trump, just, “recent comments aimed at our players.” However, Trump BFF Tom Brady did comment on the Donald’s words during his weekly WEEI radio appearance.
“I certainly disagree with what he said. I thought it was just divisive.”
Good on Brady for speaking up. His words carry a lot of weight in the NFL given that he’s the biggest star in the league and I’m sure most didn’t expect him to comment. Do I think this is more about him not wanting to cause issues with the team than his disapproval of Trump? Yes, but he still had an opinion on the matter, which is more than we can say about most NFL quarterbacks.
Brady went on to say that teammates have never asked him about his relationship with Trump. When asked about Patriots fans who booed players who kneeled, here’s what he had to say:
“I think everyone has a right to do whatever they want to do. If you don’t agree with it, that’s fine, you can voice your disagreement; I think that’s great. It’s part of our democracy, as long as it’s done in a peaceful, respectful way. That’s what this country has been all about.”
There’s the line-toeing Tom we’ve all come to love and appreciate. I hope Brady takes a knee during the anthem this weekend just to see how Patriots fans react. Sure, it’s easy to boo the back-up defensive lineman for kneeling, but are they really gonna boo Tom friggin Brady?
Even though Brady doesn’t approve of Trump’s comments, the fact that he endorsed Trump and his owner donated to Trump’s campaign makes Tom and the Patriots part of the reason we’re in this mess.
Remember the good ol’ days when sports and politics were separate and the President cared more about fixing our country than a guy kneeling during a football game?
It's quite possible that there's no more tragic story in the history of professional football than that of Aaron Hernandez.
Back in 2015, Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd.
In April, the world was shocked by the news that Hernandez had taken his own life inside his cell at the Souza-Barankowski Correctional Facility in Lancaster, Massachusetts.
Today, Hernandez's autopsy results have been made public, and they confirm what many who followed his case closely have long suspected.
Doctors have revealed to The New York Times that the 27-year-old was suffering from CTE, a brain injury that's shockingly common to football players.
According to the Times a team of neurologists stated that their examination revealed “the most severe case they had ever seen in someone of Aaron’s age.”
Sadly, the news does not come as much of a surprise.
CTE has had devastating effects on innumerable football players, both professional and otherwise.
The condition has been linked to the suicides of Junior Seau and Tyler Sash, the decline of late New York Giants legend Frank Gifford, and countless other NFL stars.
It seems impossible that we'll ever understand the full impact of the disease on America's best-loved sport.
But today, we know a little bit more about the devastating impact it's had on Aaron Hernandez, Odin Lloyd, and their loved ones.
Now, Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, is suing the NFL and the New England Patriots as a result of the diagnosis.
Lawyers for Jenkins claim "Aaron had stage 3 CTE usually seen in players with a median age of death of 67 years."
The suit filed this afternoon claims that the Patriots "were fully aware of the damage that could be inflicted from repetitive impact injuries and failed to disclose, treat or protect him from the dangers of such damage."
Attorneys say that Jenkins, who has a 4-year-old daughter with Hernandez, is seeking "redress for the loss of parental consortium she has experienced based on the negligent conduct of Defendants that deprived her of the companionship and society of her father, Aaron Hernandez."
The suit concludes by stating bluntly:
"On April 19, 2017, Aaron succumbed to the symptoms of CTE and committed suicide."
We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
Those who have followed Floyd Mayweather’s career know that he’s a pretty terrible human being. Only a terrible human being would beat his wife in front of his kids. To Mayweather’s credit, he’s turned being a terrible human being into a marketable persona that has allowed him to make millions of dollars. So, he’s not entirely dumb.
And those who have followed Donald Trump’s career know that he’s a pretty terrible human being. Only a terrible human being would be openly racist while trying to run a country. To Trump’s credit, he’s turned being a terrible human being into being the President of the United States. So, America is almost entirely dumb.
Remember when Donald Trump wanted to “grab them by the pussy?” It was a line that proved he was an egotistical sexist and yet women still voted for him. It should have sunk his campaign. But. Women. Still. Voted. For. Him.
Not so surprisingly, Floyd Mayweather had no issue with that line. Here’s what Mayweather told Hollywood Unlocked in an interview:
“People don’t like the truth… He speak like a real man spoke. Real men speak like, ‘Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.’ Right? So he talking locker room talk. Locker room talk. ‘I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the pussy. And?'”
Ah, the good ol “locker room talk” excuse. If that’s such a standard in the locker room, how come we never hear about anyone else making such comments? I guess no one else is a real man because they don’t walk up to women and just grab them by the pussy.
Mayweather had more to say about Trump, but some of the quotes are so cringeworthy that I can’t even bring myself to relay them. Ah well, that’s why they pay me the big bucks:
The thing is this: too many people are worried about what Trump is doing and what other presidents are doing, instead of worrying about what you’re trying to do and what level you’re trying to get to. See, my thing is I don’t give a fuck about what nobody else doing. I got to worry about what I’m trying to do and where I’m trying to get to. A lot of times, it’s, ‘Aw, man, it’s going to affect us.’ My man, if you ain’t making 400, 500, $600 million, it’s not going to affect you no fucking way. It’s only going to affect somebody like me. I’m the motherfucker that should be tripping—paying $34 million, $25 million, $26 million [in taxes].
If only there was more to life than paying taxes.
“I feel people shy away from realness. This man didn’t do nothing. Listen, if y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should have voted the other way. It ain’t like he went and robbed—he done his homework. He did what he had to do and he got there.”
Well, he’s got us there.

The three faces of America. Good job, America.
Pro boxer Adrien Broner was taking snaps with fans in Vegas over the weekend when he got all huffy. Broner was caught on video pushing his female friend who was trying to calm him down and then punching a random guy in the face.
No one knows what set Broner off. If I had to take a wholly uneducated guess, it’s because he wanted to go 34 and 3.
Ronda Rousey may or may not be debuting in the WWE in the near future, but that’s not going to stop WWE from acting like she’ll be debuting in the near future.
Rousey has multiple ties to WWE, first appearing ringside at SummerSlam in 2014 and then stepping into the ring at WrestleMania 31 where she tossed around Triple H and Stephanie McMahon during an interview segment. Four Horsewomen stablemate Shayna Baszler is a finalist in the WWE Mae Young Classic while another stablemate, Marina Shafir, is married to WWE superstar Roderick Strong.
In a pre-taped segment at the Mae Young Classic, MMA’s Four Horsewomen (Rousey, Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, Shafir) challenged WWE’s Four Horsewomen (Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch).
Rousey says, “you name the time, you name the place” before the six girls just stare at each other and nothing happens.
This segment was shot months ago during the filming of the Mae Young Classic. Rousey’s group and Flair’s group, both of whom ripped off their name from Ric Flair’s stable, both sat ringside and taunted each other with four fingers.
Rousey is reportedly training for an in-ring run, but if and when that happens remains to be seen. Her MMA career is likely over following back-to-back KO defeats, so wrestling remains a strong option. She can work limited dates, win every match because it’s a pre-determined sport, and not get legitimately punched and kicked in the head.
Plus, Vince McMahon loves stars from other sports and would cater to all of her demands. If she could get that Brock Lesnar schedule/money, she’d be a fool to turn it down.
Her wrestling debut will be on hold for at least a month or so as she got married to Travis Browne last weekend.
That month could turn into well over a year if Rousey is as serious about wanting his babies as she was following her loss to Holly Holm.
As expected, Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor Saturday night in a fight that was far more entertaining than it had any right to be.
Of course, now that his career in the ring is over, Mayweather will likely spend the rest of his days engaged in the other kind of battle he's become famous for.
No, we're not talking about the many incidents of spousal abuse he's been arrested for over the years.
We're talking about the odd, passive-aggressive verbal sparring between Floyd and random celebrities that seems to take up much of the boxer's time.
The most high-profile example in the past year saw Floyd getting dissed by former friend Justin Bieber, who decided to cut ties with the Money Man as a result of Mayweather's ungodly ways.
(Strip clubs and Moet don't jibe with the Biebs' newly Bible-thumping lifestyle.)
Now, Floyd is in a tift with another talented, but widely-despised pretty boy.
And amazingly, he's found a frenemy who might be even more universally-disliked than Bieber.
Asked about his celebrity friends in a recent interview, Mayweather stated that he and Tom Brady are pretty much besties.
"That's a close friend of mine. Tom Brady is a very, very close friend," Mayweather said.
"An unbelievable guy with unbelievable talent...he's a great guy. Actually, Tom Brady texted me yesterday."
In case you didn't get the point that he and Tom are bros for life, Mayweather continued:
"We have a cool friendship. He texted me and asked me 'How's everything going?' And I texted him back: 'Everything is cool, how you doing? How's the family?' And he said, 'Everything is going A-OK.'"
Wow, sounds like they're pretty tight.
Unless, of course, you ask Tom Brady about his supposed BFF.
Fortunately, that's just what a pair of Boston radio hosts did this week, and the results were hilariously awkward.
After repeating that he's only met Floyd "a couple of times," Brady responded with a curt "no" when asked if he and Mayweather are friends.
"No, I met him a couple of times," Brady said, clearly dying to move on to a new topic.
"I think he's a great fighter. That was a great fight the other night."
We hate to side with Floyd on ... well, on anything, really, but Mayweather is probably telling the truth here.
TMZ is reporting that Floyd was spotted video conferencing with Brady during a press conference just before his fight with McGregor.
For boxers, every fight is one of the biggest days of their life, so if they're video chatting with you the night before, you're probably more than just some dude they met a couple times.
In all likelihood, the Patriots QB is just trying to manage his public image after the debacle that ensued last summer when the world learned that Brady and Donald Trump are friends.
Anyone who watched the Deflategate press conference knows old Tom Terrific isn't the most media-savvy guy on the planet but watching that guy who used to make inappropriate comments about your wife at cocktail parties become the most powerful man in the world is enough to teach anyone a lesson.
Michael Phelps watched the big Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather bout on Saturday and thought to himself, “Is it that easy to con America out of millions of dollars that goes directly into my pocket?”
Yes, Michael, it is. That’s why he decided to do this:
— Michael Phelps (@MichaelPhelps) August 29, 2017
While we’re all laughing at the prospect of the greatest swimmer of all-time taking on a guy with no competitive swimming experience, give it six months.
If this race were to become official today, in six months people would be saying the following things:
*Phelps is old and past his prime. Conor is younger and at his physical peak.
*Phelps has no tape to look at on Conor. He doesn’t know what to expect when Conor gets in the pool.
*Think of all the awkward angles Conor can use to obtain victory.
*Conor only needs one stroke.
Then show a bunch of footage of Conor training really hard, edit some clips of him racing against Ryan Lochte, make sure to include that Phelps is doing nothing but eating pizza, and boom: Conor is now a +200 underdog and I can make a ton of money on Michael Phelps.
I’d say the idea of Conor training for six months to face off against retired legends at the sport they dominated is a good one, but I watched it years ago. It was called Shaq Vs. and it wasn’t as entertaining as you may think.
In fact, Shaq raced Phelps:
The difference between Shaq vs. Phelps and Conor vs. Phelps is that it the whole circus lasted 42 minutes and was on free television. That definitely beats six months of meaningless words and paying $100 bucks for an outcome that is already known.
Plus, NBA fans are secure with their sport. If Conor leads one second of a race against Phelps, MMA fans are going to denounce the sport of swimming, declare that Conor would have won with more training, and then beg Phelps to fight Conor in the Octagon.
Olympic legend Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole are expecting their second child, the duo announced in dueling social media posts.
Phelps and the former Nicole Johnson are already parents to a little boy named Boomer ... who seems pretty hyped to be a big brother!
The greatest swimmer ever wrote, alongside the photo above: “Number 2 on the way!!!! So excited!! Wonder if it’s a boy or a girl??”
We too wonder this, but there's no debating that Boomer is about as precious as it gets as he holds his mom's pregnancy test.
(Which we presume is positive, hence the post.)
Added Nicole in her own Instagram post featuring the same photo of herself and her son, “Lil mans going to be a Big Brother!!!”
The couple met in 2007, started dating in 2009 and temporarily broke up prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics before reuniting in 2014.
Michael's been with her through a lot of ups and downs in life, but never has he seemed happier than right here, right now.
Not to be left out, Boomer, 15 months, says he's looking forward to big brotherhood as well, according to his personal Instagram.
“So excited to see what mama is having!! Do I get to have a brother or a sister?!?” Phelps and Johnson's son "wrote" earlier.
Nicole and Michael welcomed Boomer in May 2016, just months before he capped off his historic Olympic career in Rio that summer.
They also got married last year - two times!
Michael and Nicole, both 32, tied the knot in June and then wed again in late October during a larger event in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Clearly, parenthood suits them, as he said earlier this year they were already thinking about number two in terms of when, not it.
“Nicole has recently brought up that she would like a girl!” Phelps told People. “We definitely want more kids, it just depends on when."
“I’m sure I’m getting pressure.”
Hey, at least she knows the swimmer's boys can ... sorry, that's not even that funny at the end of the day, but we couldn't resist.
Phelps said Nicole’s pregnancy with Boomer wasn’t planned, but this time around revealed, “[We’re] trying to get moving on some things!”
"We are so fortunate to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully more coming soon, but we don’t know when,” Michael added.
“We’re going through life everyday happy and blessed with what we have. But I hope to have more kids in the future,” he said.
Now in retirement, the winner of an eye-popping 23 Olympic medals from 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 combined is quite content.
He may miss the competition sometimes, but having devoted his whole life to the sport, extra time at home with the kid is great as well.
So many milestones, every day.
“I think that is the coolest thing, watching him grow," he said of his adorable young son. "Just watching him figure out new things.”
Congrats to the whole family!
Two Pittsburgh natives who prefer hockey to football beat the hell out of their mom/grandma when she wouldn’t turn down the Steelers game.
Delores Amorino, 40, and Sarah Amorino, 17, got angry when their 70-year-old mother/grandmother was listening to a Steelers preseason game too loudly and instead of dealing with the situation in a rational way, they went the complete opposite direction.
According to the affidavit, Delores twisted her mother’s arm and Sarah hit her in the face with a broom, choked her, and shaved her head.
“The victim was unhappy with the volume of the TV after the defendants turned the volume low, so the victim locked herself in the bedroom and turned on her radio. The defendants broke the door jam [sic], entered the victim’s room saying, “you don’t need to listen to the game’,” and began abusing her,”
The alleged abuse occurred Sunday and Monday, which leads me to ask, where the hell was the husband/father?
You know the mom has been plotting this for a long time. She probably still remembers all those times her mom wouldn’t let her go out on a Sunday afternoon because she didn’t finish her homework. Or how her mom took away her makeup kit because she didn’t clean her room. And you know the 17-year-old doesn’t have any friends if she’s hanging out with her mom and grandma during the final days of summer.
Sarah and Delores are being charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, and strangulation. Oh wait, there are more charges. Add on terroristic threats, false imprisonment, and simple assault. Still not enough? Good, because there’s also harassment and criminal mischief.
Eight friggin’ charges all because grandma wanted to listen to a preseason football game like she did as a kid. Sure, it’s preseason and it doesn’t matter, but breaking the radio would have sufficed. Beating, choking, and shaving is a bit much.
At least the Steelers defeated the Falcons 17-13.
You know, I’m kind of a pudgy guy, and I worry about what that means for my health. Today is one of those days where a sad story reminds us all that no matter how fit you are, you could still die at any time for any reason. Professional bodybuilder Dallas McCarver, called Big Country by his friends, was in excellent physical condition, but that wasn’t enough to save him from going out the same way as Mama Cass.
According to TMZ, McCarver apparently choked to death on his dinner Monday night:
We spoke with McCarver’s girlfriend, WWE superstar Dana Brooke, who says the 26-year-old was found unconscious just after midnight Tuesday morning by a friend at his home shortly after they spoke on the phone.
McCarver was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports there appears to be no signs of foul play.
Brooke says McCarver told her he was about to make dinner and the last thing he said to her was, “I love you. Goodbye.”
Brooke says the cause of death is believed to be choking on food … and it does not appear McCarver was trying to harm himself.
McCarver had worked out earlier in the day on Monday and seemed to be doing just fine … no signs of a medical problem while hitting a chest press with 160 lbs dumbbells.
It is a sad thing to see someone so young and healthy die in a tragic accident. In light of this, let’s all take a second and learn how to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on ourselves to make sure this sort of thing can be avoided in the future. And if at all possible, share your ham sandwich with Karen Carpenter; you could save two lives.
This off season is off to a great start! Already waking up as heavy as I want to be at 325lbs not just to grow select amounts in needed areas and keep the midsection tight! Can't wait to see what next year brings. Yes, next year… incase you don't I unfortunately will not be competing in this years Mr. Olympia contest. I told myself if I couldn't win the Arnold I'd take the rest of the year off to improve. As hard as it is I'm making myself stick to that. That being said I have my sights set and full steam ahead for the 2018 Arnold and Lord willing the Olympia after that! After competing the past two years in the Olympia missing it is going to kill me, but I know inside it's the right move and will pay off in the long run! #dallasmccarver #bigcountry #OffSeason
#throwbackthursday this was 1 day out from the 2016 @mrolympiallc . It's going to kill me to not be on that stage this year BUT in the end I really think it's going to be one of the best career decision I've made! #dallasmccarver #bigcountry #redcon1 #outgrowyourego #CampJansen @redcon1official @outgrowyourego
Corporations are afraid of being made of. The larger the corporation, the more afraid of being made fun of they are, and corporations don’t get much larger than Disney. In a bid to avoid having internet memes made at their expense, ESPN moved an Asian-American college football announcer named Robert Lee from the upcoming William and Mary at UVA game and will be sending him instead to Pittsburgh on opening weekend. The move was made because Lee’s name is similar to that of Confederate general Robert E. Lee and Virginia was recently the site of a terrorist attack by a white supremacist.
While initial reports of this story were thought to be false, ESPN made the following statement confirming the reports:
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”
According to USA Today, ESPN made the move to avoid “potential ridicule or embarrassment.” Now to take a big drink of water and check Twitter to see how that turned out.
Aaaaaand filling in for the ESPN announcer Robert Lee: Joey Hitler

So, well done ESPN. Just imagine the potential ribbing you would have gotten if a guy named Robert Lee called a football game in Virginia. Thank god you avoided that embarrassment, right?
At UFC 214, Jon Jones made his triumphant return to the octagon to settle the bad blood he had with Daniel Cormier. He ended the fight with a head kick and vicious ground and pound until the ref stopped the fight. It seemed like that night would be Jon’s redemption story after having served a 1 year ban for failing a USADA drug test in 2016. That time before a planned bout with Cormier.
To no one’s surprise, that won’t be the case because Jon Jones is going to continue being Jon Jones. On Tuesday, news came that Jones had failed another USADA drug test. This time testing positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol which recently has had its window of detection increased from days to six months or more under new detection methods. As a result, Jones could be stripped of the title and banned for up to 4 years.
The last time Jones failed a drug test, he blamed it on dick pills saying he didn’t know it had a banned substance in it. This time he can say something more believable like someone had mixed it into all the coke he was snorting as a practical joke.
A rep for Jones released this statement,
“We are all at a complete loss for words right now. Jon, his trainers, his nutritionists and his entire camp have worked tirelessly and meticulously the past 12 months to avoid this exact situation. We are having the samples tested again to determine the validity or source of contamination. Jon is crush by this news and we are doing whatever we can as a team to support him.”
Jones would probably be the greatest light heavyweight of all time if it wasn’t for his uncanny ability to screw himself over. He’s like a real life version of Wile E. Coyote.
Anyway, let’s see what Mark Hunt has to say about this.
Nut shots will never not be funny. If monkeys had stopped laughing over hitting each other in the balls, evolution would’ve happened much faster
Jordan Leandre threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the St. Louis Cardinals – Boston Red Sox game Wednesday night. Someone forgot to tell him to aim towards the mound. His pitch went straight to a photographer’s balls.
That cameraman’s dick gonna look like a zipper because of the baseball stitch marks left from Leandre’s poor throw.
Don’t hate on Leandre though. He’s a cancer survivor. When he had it at age 4, he became well-known for singing the anthem at Fenway Park. That was back in 2004. Thirteen years later, his pitching has improved only slightly. Leandre’s a high school pitcher too, which is odd.
Tony Capobianco, the cameraman, is ok. He even posted the photo he took right before taking a ball to the groin.

Girls Little League Team Kicked Out of World Series for Snapchatting Themselves Flipping Off the Camera
Kids can’t have fun anymore. The Atlee junior league softball team from Mechanicsville, Virginia, Snapchatted themselves flipping the bird. That, by itself, isn’t too bad.
Evidently, though, those middle fingers were aimed at one of their previous opponents. It came in response to a game against the Kirkland, Washington team at the Junior League World Series. The tournament, funny enough, is being hosted by the Kirkland team.
Supposedly, Kirkland was stealing Atlee’s signs during a game between the two. That transgression even got a player and coach from Kirkland’s team thrown out. These players shouldn’t have gotten involved. They should’ve done what every little league does. Let the dads come on the field and fight each other.
Instead, the Atlee team snapped their response.
Wow in Kirkland WA today. Junior League Softball pic.twitter.com/PSO5CwomsB
— Vin (@Vin99272529) August 5, 2017
Once the photo came out, Atlee manager Scott Currie tried to do damage control. He had the team delete the photo immediately and made them apologize to the entire Kirkland team in person. I would laugh my ass off if the Atlee Little League team then snapped out a photo of every single team member and coach flipping off the camera. I’m sure these Atlee team members totally meant their apologies too.
That act of contrition didn’t help.
The Little League head office, in the most newsworthy event that’s ever happened in their existence, dropped the hammer. They explained:
After discovering a recent inappropriate social media post involving members of Atlee Little League’s Junior League Softball tournament team, the Little League® International Tournament Committee has removed the Southeast Region from the 2017 Junior League Softball World Series for violation of Little League’s policies regarding unsportsmanlike conduct, inappropriate use of social media, and the high standard that Little League International holds for all its participants.
League officials then banned the whole Atlee team from the tournament. Ironically, the officials then had Kirkland sub in for Atlee in the championship game. Kirland lost 7-1 to USA Central.
That doesn’t make much sense. You wouldn’t ban an NFL team from playing just because one player gets popped.
Those teens learned a really great lesson from this. Not about sportsmanship. About narcs and how they’re everywhere.
We’re three weeks away from Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather, which means we still have three more weeks of nonsense to deal with.
The latest nonsense comes from camp McGregor, who leaked photos of the UFC lightweight champion knocking down pro boxer Paulie Malignaggi.
— Conor McGregor News (@ConormcGregor5) August 3, 2017
Malignaggi, who had been helping McGregor prepare for the bout, took exception to the photos coming out and the implication behind them.
Its not nice 2 paint a pic that isn't true, this was a pushdown in sparring, post the whole video rounds 1 through 12 UNEDITED https://t.co/R82BLiMMVm
— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
McGregor’s camp made it seem like Conor knocked Malignaggi in the sparring contest, while Malignaggi claims that photo was taken after he got shoved down. In order to prove who is right, the boxer wants footage released.
The @ufc PI has cameras all over the gym recording 24/7. The video exists UNEDITED of rounds 1 through 12 Tuesday night, let the fans see.
— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
Good luck with that, Paulie. Malignaggi went on to say that he consistently got the better of McGregor in the sessions.
I actually beat his ass, 24 hrsoff a flight 2 lol, which is why Im saying post the vid, I try not 2 be petty but seems it's late 4 that now. https://t.co/vSE2Iw4ffM
— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
Nah I pretty much talked shit that whole sparring session while I beat the breaks off him, the push down was his frustration from it. https://t.co/m0IDBP0pB2
— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
I guess we’ll never know without video.
Following the leaking of these photos, Malignaggi announced that he would no longer be helping McGregor prepare for the August 26 bout.
— Paul Malignaggi (@PaulMalignaggi) August 4, 2017
This whole event is a dumpster fire. You want to know how I know that Conor has no shot against Mayweather? Because stuff like this leaks online. Whenever a fighter is given no chance in a fight, something always comes out from training camp that makes it look like they have a chance.
When James Toney, a professional boxer, was scheduled to fight Randy Couture, a legendary UFC fighter, stories came out how Toney was submitting pro MMA fighters in training camp. People took notice and thought Toney was going to be real trouble for Couture. Couture submitted him in the first round without getting touched.
Even if Conor knocked down Malignaggi, who cares? Paulie is 4-4 with 3 losses by KO or TKO over the last five years. He’s not even close to Mayweather’s level. However, he is part of the Showtime broadcast team for the fight. I’m sure he’ll be able to remain impartial.
This fight and everything involved with it can’t be over soon enough. Mayweather can go back to running from the IRS. Conor can embarrass guys in MMA. And we can never have this “boxing vs. MMA” discussion again.
Steph Curry proves he’s just like one of us. If you were a rich, professional basketball player worth $200+ million dollars. Hey, you remember when you tried to crash that random house party and they let you in, gave you beer and photographed it for the Internet? No, because that doesn’t happen to schlubs like you.
For Curry though, you can walk right in with teammate Kent Bazemore.
The 29-year-old NBA superstar was in Newport, Rhode Island on Saturday night for the wedding of his ex-Warrior teammate, Harrison Barnes — and after the party, he was on the hunt for the after-party.
So, he rounded up a gang of 5 dudes — including Kent Bazemore — and rolled over to a nearby house that was bumpin’ loud music.
They knocked and asked if they could join in — and the gang of 20-something-year-olds inside immediately passed over the Bud Lights.
The hosts tried to get Curry to shotgun a beer, but no, Curry said he’d prefer to sip his. So dainty.
Imagine Tom Brady jerking off his linemen. That could be a problem. It certainly was an issue for this Brazilian soccer team.
Sport Clube Gaucho are a Brazilian third-division side who haven’t been relevant since they briefly made the first division in the 1980s. That changed, though, when four players had their contracts rescinded after a video showing one of them jerking off two of his teammates in the club showers leaked.
Huh, the team’s marketing department really thought outside the box for this viral video. If they wanted publicity for their team, they sure got it. Whoever proposed this video to the team deserves an award. “I’m gonna need two volunteers…to be jerked off by a third volunteer…all to be filmed by a fourth volunteer.” Think of the views!
The video is, how shall I put this, very graphic and very NSFW.

•4 joueurs ont été virés du Club brésilien "Sport Club Gaúcho" pour cette vidéo‼️
Once club president Gilmar Rosso heard about this, he kicked off all four players from the team. Not because of homophobia or anything. Seriously, it wasn’t. They were kicked off the team for doing it on club property. But marketing told us to do it!
“The only thing we have to answer to is the making of the video inside the club dressing room.”
Rosso added that he wanted to protect the players from potential heckling. Well, there’ll definitely be a lot of that.
Rosso also said:
“When I hit play, I deleted it, I think it’s disgusting. Outside business hours, we have nothing to do with the situation. If they want to get drunk, [be] gay or not, that’s their problem.”
Whoa whoa whoa…some guy jerking off two other guys makes them all gay now? I believe that’s called team bonding.
A down payment on a house, a used or maybe even new car, a wedding, a kingdom in Bali. These are all things you could spend $15,000 on. If you’re a rich UFC super fan, another thing you could spend $15,000 on is Justin Kish’s shit-stained underwear that was smeared in crap during her fight with Felice Herrig.
Talking to Submission Radio, Kish said someone offered her $15k for her soiled shorts to put up in his man cave. Probably to jerk off to or I don’t know what.
“The most lucrative offer I’ve got is someone messaged me and said, ‘hey, we would love to pay’ — because I didn’t get my winnings. I would say I returned back with half of what I would have liked to have had, and so the most lucrative was, ‘hey, I would like to buy whatever kind of winnings you lost, I would like to buy your shorts for that same amount to hang them up and blah, blah blah in my man cave.’
Kish thought this was disgusting, just, disgusting. So disgusting, in fact, that she hesitantly sent him her information to start the transaction.
“Some man that wanted a man cave with my shorts – he has like a UFC (shrine). He gave me his name, his email address, all these things. I really don’t want to give too much details, but that was the most lucrative offer and I’m not gonna… I mean, why?” she explained. “People are saying, ‘send them over, just go do it.’ I’m like, ‘oh, alright. Well I’ll give him my information, but I don’t see how this is actually real.’”
“What a sick, sick man,” Kish probably thought to herself as she emailed him back asking if he wanted it to be gift wrapped.
Abstaining from sex before fights might work for men. For women, according to model Mia Kang, it’s the opposite. Bone away.
Kang was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 Issue.
Lately, she’s been getting into muay thai. She stopped by the MMA Fighting studios for a long interview weeks ago. Worth watching if you’re interested in muay thai.
She’s had one muay thai fight and Ariel Helwani decided to interview her for an hour. Okay, whatever. Nevermind there’s a ton of other women in the U.S. and around the world who have way more experience. But, good on her for hustling and getting on camera. She’ll probably even tell you that there’s much more deserving people who haven’t been recognized in muay thai.
How can anyone not talk about her when she says things like:
“When females have sex, testosterone levels increase, so the recommendation is to have as much sex as possible before you fight.”
Model, sex, muay thai. Who doesn’t wanna hear this?
Going by her Instagram, she did well her last fight, winning by TKO.
Kang is single and says “I am not actively out there looking,” so I guess she won’t do as well in her next fight without that added testosterone.
