Rafael dos Anjos: Pettis 'a good fighter, but I just think he's not unbeatable'

Rafael dos Anjos  has flown largely under the radar in his run to a UFC title shot, and he admits that’s probably because he’s a bit on the reserved side when it comes to hyping a fight. But he warns not to let that color your opinion on his chances.

UFC: Ronda Rousey's sister gives some fun facts about the champ you probably didn't know

Her sister,  Maria Burns Ortiz , is a sports journalist who serves as the social media columnist for and is a contributor to FOX Latino. Ortiz wrote a great feature about Ronda with 5 facts you probably don't know about the transcendent star. I would be remiss in my duties if I didn't share this fun piece with our readers, so I have chosen two of those facts for here and will link you to the  ESPN post to read the rest.

Rener Gracie: People give Cyborg more credit than she deserves

Now, you know, what happens when you're going against a man, they put a little more power behind their punches, the knockout power is stronger, and who knows, they can muscle out of submissions a little crazier. But I'll tell you what, once she's latched onto a limb, I don't care who's limb it is, they're going to tap. That's for sure. She finds ways to incorporate her entire body, the leverage of her whole body, against the joint that she's attacking. So, I wouldn't put it past her, but I don't know if I'd go so far as to claim [she'd beat most male UFC bantamweights]. It's just, I know what Ronda's capable of and I know for sure that it's not fair, it's not competitive where she's at right now. Because man, she's just too good. I just don't see any woman in the world beating her.

Anthony Pettis: I want to be one of the pay-per-view kings of the UFC

"I want to be one of the pay-per-view kings in the UFC," Pettis said. "I think there's a path right now set up for someone to come in and take over, and I can be that guy. I have the fighting style and people like seeing me fight. I don't plan on changing that. I just need to keep doing what I do and everything will happen."


Anderson Silva reiterates PED denial: 'I don't know what happened'

Yeah. But, I don't think so. I need to check for old supplement I used. Because, I never fought the commission in this sport. I'm very happy because the commission help me, I help commission. I go to work together [with] the commission. Because, I think this is bad for the sport, it's so bad for me in my life, because I never use nothing for change my performance in the fight.

Remember that time Ronda Rousey smashed a reporter's ribs?

UFC bantamweight champion  Ronda Rousey  has become so dominant in the women's division that promoter Dana White has gone so far as to joke that he may start matching her up against men to fight, from now on. Not too long ago, reporter Aaron Tru  made the mistake of questioning whether or not "Rowdy" Ronda had the skills to take on a man.

Go off the beaten path: Nebraska's Sandhills Journey

Two Bills Just Introduced To Congress Will Federally Legalize Cannabis In The US

I smoked pot from the age of 18 to 55, daily if I had it. I met hundreds of people over that time period, many were friends that also smoked pot daily if they had it. None of these people turned to hard drugs. But a few of them, including my oldest brother became alcoholics. That screwed up there lives. These same people would run out of pot and it was no big deal. My brother was murdered on September 1st, 2014 along with 3 other men by a guy who gave his self up to the police and said he did it for the money, about $1000.00. He said he did it because he was a COKE addict. The point I’m making is know one would do this just to bye pot, or it would be 1 in 100million. The world has been smoking pot in recent times since the 60’s and the world has been cruising along just fine. People are going to smoke it whether it is legal or not, why because you don’t have to make it like COKE,METH and so on, just plant it and stand back. Take the states that have approved it, the people that are smoking it were already smoking it so nothing is going to change. There was a story on TV about 2 years ago were a guy had 3 pot plants that he was growing for his personal use.

Morning Report: The next B.J. Penn, Anthony Pettis plans on being UFC's 'pay-per-view king'

"I want to be one of the pay-per-view kings in the UFC," Pettis said. "I think there's a path right now set up for someone to come in and take over, and I can be that guy.

Vitor Belfort: Chris Weidman should be drug tested as much as me

After his first violation, back in 2006, he ignored his suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission by fighting in England. Years later, the UFC kept him fighting abroad, outside the jurisdiction of credible and strong commissions while he used a drug treatment (testosterone replacement therapy) that then-Nevada commission executive director Keith Kizer said that he'd be unlikely to receive a therapeutic use exemption for if he applied for one in the state -- the world's fight capital and the home of the UFC -- because of his past steroid use.

Scientists have figured out what makes Indian food so delicious

But behind the appeal of Indian food — what makes it so novel and so delicious — is also a stranger and subtler truth. In a large new analysis of more than 2,000 popular recipes, data scientists have discovered perhaps the key reason why Indian food tastes so unique: It does something radical with flavors, something very different from what we tend to do in the United States and the rest of Western culture. And it does it at the molecular level.

Rich Franklin: Anderson Silva will be remembered like Lance Armstrong

"Well, I'll tell you, a lot of things. I mean I feel bad for him. Honestly. Anderson's had this long run and then of course when something like this happens the fans are going to start asking, 'Well, how long has he been on this stuff?' And for him to have such a run the way that he did and to come back from an injury the way that he did, it's just, it's a shame to think that that is going to tarnish his reputation -- like, that that's what he'll leave his career on. Even if he doesn't leave now, that's the overriding factor that's going to be remembered. Much like Lance Armstrong," Franklin said.

The Obsession

This project is our best way of showing and explaining our passion for the sport of chasing muskies, the fish of 10,000 casts... Is it addiction, yes, but more so an OBSESSION.

New Bellator champ Liam McGeary: Shocked to get belt, Tito 'living in dreamworld'

“To fight Tito would be an absolute honor, because this dude’s a legend in the sport,” he said. “But for him to say that he’s going to capture the belt and defend it once, that’s him living in his little dreamworld. I’ve got the belt, and it’s time for me. There’s no defend it once and lose it – I’m keeping a hold of that.”

This May Be The Live-Action He-Man Movie's Badass Battle Cat

I honestly don't know. It seems weird that one of the first details of the movie would come from a random, high-ranking Sony executive on Twitter, but it seems even weirder for that high-ranking Sony executive to randomly share Battle Cat art that isn't in some way involved in the long-in-development movie project. I certainly hope it's real, because it is awesome , and I'm not just saying that as a crazed He-Man fan.

14 SECONDS!!! Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano (UFC 184 - Gracie Breakdown)

Ronda Rousey defends her title by submitting Cat Zingano with a spectacular armbar in a record-breaking 14 seconds! Ronda has never used this variation of the armbar, and the submission was so fast that no one could comprehend what she did. To help you understand, Ryron and Rener break down every second of the fight including the pivotal moment where Cat's decision "keep the head" costed her to give up her arm and lose the fight.

Curt Schilling Tracks Down Guys Harassing Daughter on Twitter, "There Are Repercussions to Your Actions"

"The Sports Guru? Ya he's a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he's on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College,” Schilling blasted. “How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don't think this isn't going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he's after googles and reads this?" he wrote on his blog.

Stoned rabbits are the anti-marijuana movement's weakest ploy yet

I like how he lumps the entertainers in with the Negroes, Hispanics and Filipinos. Bing Crosby must have hated that guy. Listen: if jazz and swing music are the product of marijuana use, then marijuana is even more awesome than you think it is. But that’s not even his best line. Try this one : “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.” Yeah, well, we certainly can’t have that. We can’t have the “coloreds” getting high. Next thing you know, they’ll be putting on airs or getting uppity, not because all human beings have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but because of marijuana. Better to put them in jail before they get any big ideas about “equality”. Could it be that the laws prohibiting marijuana are founded on racism and fear? Is this the reason why blacks are arrested 3.7 times more often than whites , even though blacks and whites use cannabis at about the same rate? I will let you draw your own conclusions. I deal in facts.

4 Reasons Why Manny Pacquiao Will Beat Floyd Mayweather - Evolve Daily

Because he has better offensive techniques Samuel Ha:  “The subtle feints and the crazy angles will pose a serious problem for Floyd, like it has done all of Pacquiao’s other opponents. The question is, how long will it take Mayweather to adjust to the feints and angles of Pacquiao?  Mayweather needs to be able to read them and not fall for them(easier said than done), or make Pacquiao miss because the more impatient he misses, the less he feints and the more wild he gets.”

Clifford Starks - Mixed Martial Arts - Knucklepit

Best known for his powerful single- and double-leg takedowns and dominating positioning on the ground, Clifford Starks comes from a wrestling background having taken up the sport as a young teenager. He can end matches with submissions – his first and last fight ended with a keylock and guillotine, respectively – or through brutal g’n’p. However; the majority of Clifford’s stoppages have come via his anvil fists which he continues to polish up whilst training with the Lally Brothers at Arizona Combat Sports.

The Iron Training of Ivan Salaverry | FIGHTLAND

Salaverry excuses himself to drop off his kids and lets Russell tour me around before later returning. The gym is separated into two areas: striking and grappling, color coordinated by green and red, respectively. Russell first shows me around the Green Room, the gym’s main training area that is sure enough, tiled and floored with green mats. Hanging alongside the windows are a series of slender Muay Thai heavybags that when followed lead to a back room with a raised boxing ring and free weight area. All pads, gloves, and protective gear are neatly stacked facing the same direction, a reflection of the gym’s meticulous attention to detail. Through the parking garage is a new addition: the infamous Red Room that went up only a few months ago. The first thing you notice walking in is the humidity and the musk, something along the lines of unbaked pizza dough. Like the Green Room, it is also tiled with mats color-coordinated with its name, and I walk in on a group of sweat-drenched jiu jitsu fighters wrapping up a session of rolling. Russell makes a comment about the odor and one of the students looks up to me and says with a smile, “It’s the smell of victory.

Chael Sonnen vs. Renato 'Babalu' Sobral set for Metamoris VI

Gracie added that Sonnen vs. Sobral will not serve as the main event, which will be announced in the coming days.

Champs - Movie Trailers - iTunes

Boxing, "the poor man’s sport," has long given kids from America’s roughest neighborhoods an opportunity to escape violence with violence. But with success in the ring comes new fights for which there is no training: champions are made and broken in the blink of an eye, and young men thrust into the spotlight are often ill-equipped for the fame and fortune that accompany a title belt. Built around the stories of heavyweight legends Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins, CHAMPS balances these uncensored recollections with gorgeous reenactments, classic fight footage, and candid interviews with Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent. More than just a sports documentary, CHAMPS examines what it means to pursue the American Dream through boxing, painting a picture of a controversial and unregulated sport in a moment of crisis.
