Kansas Joins Constitutional Carry States, Anti-Gun Columnist Loses His Mind - Bearing Arms

It is safe to say that with very rare exceptions, the majority of the print and broadcast mainstream media are very liberal, very anti-gun, are unfamiliar with firearms. Sadly, many are actually proud of their ignorance. This became readily apparent again when they covered the signing of Kansas’ new “constitutional carry” bill into law by Gov. Sam Brownback.

McGregor takes MMA to the Irish Mainstream | FIGHTLAND

To be fair, even the most hardcore of the Irish MMA brigade were disappointed by some of the things that were said by the crowd on the day. Having struggled for a long time to have their sport taken seriously, the feeling seems to be that some of people who got on the mic didn’t help their case on Tuesday. With McGregor breaking into the broader Irish culture, a lot of people consuming the sport for the first time seemed to be put off by some of the things that were said.

Fight Night Fairfax Talking Points: Top Contender Status

> WATCH: Al Iaquinta Backstage Interview One had Masvidal winning a unanimous decision; the other two had Iaquinta ahead 29-28. That kind of discrepancy in scoring is difficult to understand, and it’s why fighters prefer not to leave it in judges’ hands. “I feel like I showed a lot of heart,” Iaquinta said afterward. “I pushed through a tough first round. … I feel like he coasted those last two rounds.” 3. Clay Guida must have been feeling particularly giddy after his unanimous three-round decision over Robbie Peralta. Why else would he call out President Obama and newly crowed lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos in one long post-fight diatribe? Well, maybe he didn’t exactly call out Obama, but he did tell the President to pay some notice to the UFC and college wrestling if he wasn’t too busy on the golf course. And he told dos Anjos, “Don’t forget about that guy who gave you those two metal things, man, that piece of titanium in your jaw. Don’t forget where it came from. You’re holding on to my strap.

Trading Shots: Was Al Iaquinta right to go full 'Raging Al' on UFC crowd?

Most fighters can’t handle interviews when they’re sitting in the comforts of their home with time to prepare. Now you’re asking him to deftly manipulate an angry crowd when he’s bleeding and exhausted. We’ve discussed the problems with post-fight interviews in the past, and perhaps this is another example. You can tell me how he should have handled the situation, but what makes you think you’d do any better? Think about how you’ve reacted to criticism on social media. You’re telling me you’ve never lost your cool? And that’s just people typing things on the Internet. Imagine if they were in front of your face yelling it at you.

UFC Fight Night: Mendes vs. Lamas – Winners and losers

Gray Maynard fought a decent fight against Alexander Yakovlev , where he relied more on his wrestling, but it was simply not enough to mask his noticeable flaws. Several years ago, Maynard would have had little trouble against a fighter like Yakovlev, who was unable to use his size advantage to maintain the distance between them. However, even though this was still a winnable fight for the former title challenger, he was rocked repeatedly in the second and third round, and was even dropped once. Given that Yakovlev is far from a seasoned striker, it was immediately evident that Gray's chin was no longer capable of tolerating repeated blows. If that is not a clear sign that Maynard should promptly step away from the sport, then I cannot imagine what it would take for Maynard to believe that the end has already come and gone.

So much judging. Hindsight - UFC Fight Night: Mendes vs. Lamas in retrospect

Of course, judging has to feature in this week's reflections on UFC action. Weirdly for me, however, I find myself less impassioned by judging than perhaps I used to be. I think this comes from a couple of angles. The first of those being that beyond the mystique of the "Undefeated" record or the inconceivable winning streak, records just aren't that important to most combat sports. Finding out what a kickboxer's real record looks like is a more like digging for a lost tomb than a quick fact check. Because MMA careers are generally shorter than other sports, we put more weight on a fighter's record, but we also tend to put more weight on a fighter who consistently performs well, as well.

Jorge Masvidal on loss to Al Iaquinta: 'If you're just swinging at air, is that active?'

“Nobody likes easy money more than me,” he said. “I’ll do the rematch today. But at the same time, me doing that rematch is conceding, because I’m like, ‘Y’all f-cked up, but you know what? I’ll bite the bullet. You cut half my check anyway, but I’ll still bite the bullet for the commission and do it again.’ I already got ripped off this time by not getting my full money. Now I’ve got to go out there and do it again.
