Here's the Lawless Hellscape Colorado Has Become Six Months After Legalizing Weed
The DEA is now asking the Food and Drug Administration to remove marijuana from its list of the most dangerous and harmful drugs. This could signal a radical shift in the way our government regulates and enforces weed. Marijuana advocates hail the decision as a necessary policy step towards eventual legalization, removing a critical roadblock that has constrained marijuana legalization on the local and federal levels. It is, of course, the first step of many.

BJ Penn: A Fighter Retires
There was always a running joke among a couple members of the UFC production team and myself when it came to BJ Penn. Event after event we would trade our war stories, trying to top each other by revealing the journey it took to finally track down the ever-elusive “Prodigy.” After it was all over, we would laugh at the same punchline: “But when we got him, he gave us gold.” Finally, after another chase that ended up with the aforementioned gold, I let Penn in on the joke. I told him “we chase you and chase you, and you drive us crazy, but when we catch you, you give us everything we need and all is forgiven.” Penn broke out into a hearty laugh before letting me in on another secret. “My girlfriend says the same thing.” That girlfriend at the time, Shealen, is now the mother of Penn’s two daughters, and as she walked into the media room after his bout against Frankie Edgar Sunday night, you could see the pain on her face after watching someone who is more than just a fighter to her lose. It wasn’t about the end result, but about seeing the end. It’s probably one of the reasons why Penn called it quits at the age of 35, to not put his family and those close to him through watching him in decline, and all would agree that he made the right call.

He's 52-years-old ... but NFL legend Herschel Walker tells TMZ Sports he still has an UNBELIEVABLE workout routine -- knocking out 1,500 push-ups every single day. Walker was out in NYC on Tuesday looking jacked -- as usual -- when we asked how he manages to maintain his incredible physique. For Herschel, he says the trick is easy ... just a simple 1,500 push ups plus THOUSANDS of sit-ups. He's not joking -- check out the clip ... the guy is a beast.
Whole Foods $800K Fine | Hiit Blog
At least the company is attempting to make amends, agreeing to a five year court injunction to improve pricing accuracy, they’re focusing on minimizing errors, and being transparent in everything they do. I should also point out that Whole Foods has a 98% accuracy rating, which is about the same as any other grocer, so instead of making this a Whole Foods witch hunt, it can be a wake up call to be more aware of what you’re buying and for how much.

UFC 175 salaries: Weidman ($450,000), Machida, Rousey, Faber top earners
Weidman, who defended his title in the UFC 175 main event, picked up $450,000 for his five rounds of work, getting a contracted $225,000 to show and another $225,000 in win bonus money. He beat former light heavyweight champ Machida, who was paid $200,000 – though that figure was a flat fee without a win bonus, had he pulled off the victory.
Video: UFC legend Jens Pulver also confirms retirement from MMA
Prior to BJ Penn hanging up his gloves last night, his former opponent and fellow UFC legend Jens Pulver also confirmed his retirement this past weekend.
Leading into the contest, commentators Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg tried to sell fans that Davis was going to be a tough test for Rousey. She wasn’t. Davis landed a total of two strikes during the fight, while Rousey landed 16. Most of Rousey’s strikes came after she kneed Davis to the body and threw her to the ground. Once on the mat, Rousey unloaded a series of punches to Davis’ head, and Yves Lavigne mercifully waved off a fight that had to leave some wondering why the matchup was booked in the first place .
Perfect Ten – Ronda Wins in 16 Seconds
LAS VEGAS, July 5 – Hyperbole just doesn’t work with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey anymore. In the fourth defense of her crown against Alexis Davis Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, Rousey was flawless, knocking Davis out in just 16 seconds. Simply put, it was one of the most spectacular performances you will see at the championship level in the Octagon. But the 27-year-old former Olympic Judo Bronze medalist believes the best is yet to come. “I got hit once,” smiled Rousey. “I think I can do better.” The fighters began trading as soon as the fight began, and Rousey quickly rocked Davis with a right hand and right knee. From there, she sent the Canadian for a ride with a perfectly executed throw to the mat. From there, she fired off with punches to the face that knocked Davis out and brought referee Yves Lavigne in to stop the fight at the 16-second mark. Perfection. With the win, Rousey improves to 10-0; Davis falls to 16-6. The 16-second knockout is tied with Frank Shamrock 's win over Kevin Jackson for second fastest in a UFC championship fight.

On Saturday during the weigh , B.J. looked like he had not problem making 145 and during those weigh in, B.J. had the most support from the crowd. Unfortunately this is where the story is going to have a terrible ending. The fight yesterday did not live up to the hype of B.J. returning. What we saw from B.J. was another athlete that lost their fight with father time. At no point in the fight did I have I feeling of, yes B.J. has a chance. What I saw instead was a dominant performance from Frankie Edgar and sealed the fate of the legendary career of B.J. Penn.
Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Red, White & Bruised
UFC middleweight and women’s bantamweight champions held serve
over Independence Day weekend, defending their titles in equally
decisive yet decidedly different fashions.
In the main event of UFC
175 , Chris
Weidman affirmed his status as the new king of the
185-pounders, putting to rest any notion that his two victories
over longtime ruler Anderson
Silva were flukes. This time, the “All-American” went up
against Silva’s friend and training partner, Lyoto
Machida , and while conventional wisdom held that wrestler
Weidman’s safest path to victory against the karateka would be on
the ground, the champion took a different route. Through the first
three rounds, Weidman used a mix of constant pressure, diverse
striking and takedowns to lump up his challenger. Although Machida
provided some excitement with a late surge in round five, Weidman
displayed a durable chin and retained his belt via unanimous
Rousey needed far less time to defend her belt in the co-main
event. Sixteen seconds was all it took for the champion to hurl
Davis to the ground and punch her unconscious, further widening
the gap between Rousey and the rest of the women’s 135-pound

LAS VEGAS – The UFC kicked off the first half of its Independence Day weekend doubleheader on Saturday night with UFC 175 at Mandalay Bay Events Center. The annual fight card in “Sin City” was touted as one of the best of the year, and when it came to a conclusion, those sentiments were proven correct.
Trouble Shooting Fighter Diet
Complaint 15: "I like berries, lard, beef, fruit, nuts and fish. I don't touch sugar or dairy. I've been following this diet for 5 months but can't lose any flab"
Solution: That sounds like Paleo diet to me? I guess it's time to change what you're doing. I'm not a fan of Paleo and when I say I'm not they tell me how many studies there have been done who show people lose fat on this diet. OF COURSE they do when they go from eating TOO many calories, TOO much sugar, TOO many carbs combined with TOO much fat and chronic surplus of calories. However, did they lose fat or did they lose fat and muscle plus got skinny fat? All diet methods have pros and cons, but Paleo isn't the holy grail and so are no other. ALL methods will have drawbacks. The key is to find the approach YOU get results with that you can maintain and the approach you enjoy.

The Hit List: The Top 5 moments from UFC 175 and the TUF 19 Finale
The win was impressive not just because Weidman mostly dominated. He did, but he also had to survive a stretch of adversity for the first time in his UFC career when Machida won an exchange and seemed to stun the champion. Machida won the fourth, but Weidman refused to give ground, reversing the momentum and capturing the fifth with the same effective mixture of striking and wrestling that won the first three rounds. Sure, Machida has lost before, but no one else has really handled him over the long haul the way Weidman did, and that should tell you all you need to know about just how good the champ is.

The Walkmen: UFC 175 Walkout Songs
Weidman showed the heart of a champion.
In the UFC
175 main event on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in
Las Vegas, the “All-American” dug deep in defeating Lyoto
Machida by unanimous decision to retain the
Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight crown. Over the
course of the final 10 minutes, a fatigued and at times hurt
Weidman refused to back down in the face of the most adversity he
has faced inside the cage.
Tom Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down” was a perfect anthem of
defiance when Weidman was an underdog. Now as a hunted champion,
the 30-year-old stuck with the walkout track that saw him shock the
world not once but twice against the great Anderson
Silva . Despite walking out to a song about non-violent protest,
Weidman unloaded on Machida with every weapon at his disposal for
the first three rounds of their title bout.
On the 1992 hip hop club hit “Jump Around,” Everlast raps “Pack it
up, pack it in, let me begin. I came to win. Battle me, that’s a

around on the balls of his feet to perfect his striking stance
since he was 3 years old.

I put it as a bureaucratic issue - I thought I had a license so there was a bit of confusion there. It is al in the past and I feel great. I really don't feel the effects of it.

Frustrated Chris Camozzi says fans got cheated, wants to face Yoshihiro Akiyama
After Chris Camozzi (19-8 MMA, 6-5 UFC) was outwrestled for the better part of 15 minutes in a lackluster UFC 175 affair, the middleweight veteran says he’s hoping he can quickly book a return bout against someone who’s actually willing to fight.
To quote our own Bear Siragusa , it’s not a repeat of Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman , it’s like some weird reenactment. I mean, here we have a dark-skinned Brazilian in yellow compression shorts — who was clearly trying to swagger-jack Andy in the first place — throwing a leg kick at his Caucasian counterpart, and paying the price with a floppy limb.

Matches to Make After ‘The Ultimate Fighter 19’ Finale
Edgar closed the book on his trilogy with B.J. Penn . In
fact, he slammed it shut.
Edgar roughed up and then finished the former two-division Ultimate
Fighting Championship titleholder in
“The Ultimate Fighter 19” Finale headliner on Sunday at the
Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, stopping the Hawaiian with
some ferocious third-round ground-and-pound. Penn met a bloody and
unfortunate end 4:16 into round three before announcing his
intention to walk away from the sport for good.
In a fight that was never competitive, Edgar peppered his rival
with quick punching combinations on the feet. He was even more
effective on the ground. Edgar struck for takedowns in all three
rounds, slicing open “The Prodigy” with a third-round elbow strike
moments before he finished him with unanswered punches.
In wake of “The Ultimate Fighter 19” Finale, here are six matchups
that ought to be considered:

UFC Weekend Aftermath: Frankie Edgar is still 'The Answer'
Stock Up: Chris Weidman. Yeah, I know what you're thinking: "Thanks, Captain Obvious." But Weidman's victory over Machida was a tour de force, one which answered so many of the questions which remained unanswered going into the middleweight title bout. Weidman showed off a magnificent fight IQ by never letting Machida get comfortable, cutting off his angles, and yet still pushing forward without rushing in. Weidman certainly demonstrated he has a chin, when he took everything Machida dished out late and kept on coming back for more. And, when he was finally in something resembling trouble for the first time in his 12-fight career, he showed championship heart in the fifth round, keeping his composure and regaining control of the fight to seal his win. The champ is well on his way toward the top of the pound-for-pound lists.
