Ward, Rigondeaux are Boxing Equivalents of Howard Roark

Andre Ward is one on boxing's top talents. | Photo: Stephanie Trapp/ In Ayn Rand’s groundbreaking 1943 novel, “The Fountainhead,” a brilliant architect named Howard Roark elects to struggle in relative obscurity rather than to compromise his artistic vision. The controversial Rand, who championed the notion of individual initiative and achievement over societal conformity, depicts Roark—played by Gary Cooper in the 1949 movie based on her best-selling book—as a bastion of personal integrity. If Rand, who was 77 when she died in 1982, were around today and into boxing, she might recast Roark as a fighter stubbornly resistant to accepting any alterations to his ring style or personal sense of propriety. Rand’s pugilistic protagonist likely would resemble a real-life contrarian like Andre Ward, or maybe Guillermo Rigondeaux. There are those—and they probably constitute a majority of fight fans—who would insist that Ward and Rigondeaux, widely considered to be among the top five pound-for-pound fighters in the world today when they, you know, actually fight, have inflicted more damage to their own careers than was done by others intent on imposing their values on the intransigent duo.

Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Announces Decision to Retire

One of mixed martial arts’ greatest heavyweights of all time is calling it a career. Mirko Filipovic , a former Croatian military police officer that adopted a fitting nickname in “Cro Cop,” announced his decision to retire in a message posted to his official website Tuesday morning. “Dear friends, unfortunately I had to cancel the fight [against Anthony Hamilton at UFC Fight Night “Henderson vs. Alves” ]. In the beginning of the preparation I hurt my shoulder, so I couldn't raise [my] hand. I tried to save a shoulder injury and repair in all possible ways: daily therapy, injections of blood plasma and various cocktails of drugs but it didn't work out. The only cure would be a break of two to three weeks, and that I could not afford in the midst of final preparations. By daily trainings the injury got worse. Part of the muscle is snapped, the shoulder is filled with a lot of fluids, and the great danger is that tendon ruptures and then go to operation again. “I don't need that, especially at my age,” said Filipovic, 41.

“This is not a temporary decision because I was unhappy due to all of that, but it’s my final decision and it’s best for me. Sooner or later the time comes when a man has to think on the health. I had a really long and great career and I believe I left a deep mark in the martial arts, in a free fight and in K-1 and I have no regrets. Thanks to everyone who followed me and supported me, but for me there remains beautiful memories. Greetings!”

The FBI Faked an Entire Field of Forensic Science

University of Virginia law professor Brandon L. Garrett, who has been studying DNA exonerations and wrongful convictions for years now, had this to say in an email: “When I looked at forensics in DNA exoneree trials, I found more often than not that the testimony was unscientific and flawed. We know that whenever we look at old criminal cases we see flawed forensics wherever we look. And yet hardly any crime labs have bothered to conduct audits. Nor is the problem limited to bad hair cases—much the same type of eyeballed comparison is done on bite marks, ballistics, fibers, and even fingerprints.”

Ben Carson's Pants on Fire claim that no signer of the Declaration of Independence held office

"You are absolutely right — I have no political experience," Carson wrote in the initial version of his post. "The current Members of Congress have a combined 8,700 years of political experience. Are we sure political experience is what we need. Every signer of the Declaration of Independence had no elected office experience. What they had was a deep belief that freedom is a gift from God. They had a determination to rise up against a tyrannical King. They were willing to risk all they had, even their lives, to be free."

Lies of war: Why we shouldn't believe Ronda Rousey's game plan for UFC 193

By feigning some level of fear of Holm, the judoka can potentially throw off Holm's expectations. There's no guarantee that such a tactic would work against an experienced combatant like Holm, but if there's even a small chance that she could be lulled into a false expectation of a slower-paced fight, the misdirection from Rousey leading up to Saturday's fight will have paid off.

Matthews' Homecoming Dream Realized

By their very nature, fighter are a nomadic breed. Training and the effort to expand one’s skill set often requires athletes to set out into the world to find coaches and fellow fighters who will help them push toward the next level of their progression. Even if they can find what they need within a comfortable distance, competing in the sport they’ve committed to will undoubtedly take them into foreign lands to exercise their craft. Yet, before a fighter can shift into a different global gear, there are certain things that must be mastered in the place they call home. In that regard, Jake Matthews finds himself at an interesting crossroads in his young career. The 21-year-old Australian lightweight blazed through the regional scene in Melbourne to earn a call from the premier organization in mixed martial arts in just two years of work as a professional. Getting a chance to step into the Octagon is a feat thousands of fighters never accomplish, but it was a task he traversed in lightning quick fashion. And where just getting to the big show would be more than enough for some, Matthews came to the UFC with a much bigger picture in mind.

Strikeforce's Josh Barnett Fixes A Broken Nose With Two Pens + Bad Puns

MMA H.E.A.T. was on the scene when Strikeforce Heavyweight Josh Barnett was called into action to set broken nose.  During an interview with Karyn Bryant at Erik Paulson's CSW, Josh was summoned by his training partner, Erik Arevalo, to set a broken nose suffered by Mike Cahill while training at the gym next door. Apparently there had been an accident while attempting a snatch; but luckily, Josh know just what to do in the event of such an emergency.  Armed with nothing more than two unsterile pens and some bad jokes, combat veteran Dr. Barnett got the job done. ** Snatch -noun; in weightlifting: a lift in which the weight is raised in one quick motion from the floor to an overhead position ** Be sure to visit for more interviews and archived episodes of our 1/2 hour TV show.

As another injured MMA icon calls it quits, a reminder of 'the price that must be paid'

But being a tough guy has its price. Just because you pushed through the pain of an injury a decade ago, that doesn’t mean you’re done with it, or that it’s done with you. Ask Filipovic, who said he spent the summer traveling back and forth to Germany to see a specialist about “chronic inflammation of the tendons.” Even getting to the doctor was tough, he wrote, since, with a knee that’s been operated on four times, spending so much time sitting down “hurt me terribly.”

Ryan Bader says this will be the key to beating Anthony Johnson | BJPENN.COM

“They didn’t have to convince me. We said yes right away,” Bader said Monday on The MMA Hour. “For me, looking at it from my viewpoint, nothing is guaranteed. No title shots are ever guaranteed. I’m going to sit there and wait? Cormier is saying he doesn’t even want to think about it until next year and I have no clue when they’re going to fight, maybe in April, maybe later. And then what happens if the champ breaks his hand and gets hurt? Then I’m waiting even more. Then I’m waiting for what? May, potentially getting a shot? You never know. They could throw somebody in there, they could do Gustafsson-Jones 2. You never know what’s going to happen.

Ronda Rousey: No way any other man could have remade 'Road House'

"I really think there's no way that any other man could possibly be the Swayze," Rousey said. "You'd have to re-imagine it in some way because no one's ever going to live up to him. I thought that rethinking the role as a female character would also be a really cool way to modernize it because before the whole ongoing 'I thought you'd be bigger' thing, it really was a theme throughout the movie and I think that's a way to make it more modern."
