  1. As it was brought to my attention that I was likely annoying a lot of people off in the movie and tv threads constantly filling them up with Superhero news. So I have created a place for a all things superhero. And will kick it off with the brand new Iron Fist trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7nfhrTlmIY And if that's not enough we have full cast full Marvel's latest tv project The Runaways. An interesting concept a group of teens with unique talents learn their parents are supervillains and collectively decide to do something about it. Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder is a loud-and-proud nerd. Admittedly a bit of a loner, Alex spends much of his free-time playing video games, but deep down, what he wants most is to reunite his childhood group of friends. Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru–tough, intelligent, and independent–embodies teenage angst. A budding “Wiccan,” Nico’s carefully crafted goth appearance isolates her from her peers and family, but maybe what she really needs is someone to talk to. Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, model-perfect exterior with a lot going on behind her professionally whitened smile, is burdened by the lofty expectations and responsibilities put upon her by her parents. Underneath her veneer of privilege and perfection, Karolina is experiencing a newfound eagerness to explore her identity and pursue her own desires. Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes is a purple-haired, bespectacled, contemporary riot grrrl. Never passing up a moment to stand on a soapbox, Gert sometimes wields her persona as a brash social justice warrior to mask her true feelings. Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein is a lacrosse-playing, high school heartthrob. While many write him off as a dumb jock, Chase exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering, not unlike his wildly successful father’s. Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, the youngest and most innocent member of her friend group, is known for her peppy positivity and a deep yearning to belong.
  2. Tyson Fury reminds the boxing world why nobody misses him. After tweeting out homophobic slurs to David Haye. Fury took aim at Haye this afternoon - claiming he knows “f**k all” about boxing - then offered his congratulations for “being out of the closet”. The former heavyweight champ published the messages to his 500,000 Twitter followers. Fury tweeted: “I wasn't having a go at David gay I'm complementing him, on knowing f**k all about boxing & being out of the closet. Well done Dave." Paulie Malignaggi calls out Conor McGregor "If the Floyd talk is serious you gotta test the waters against a decently recognisable [and] respectable name right? My team's phone will be on." Malignaggi, 36, has fought just once in the last 18 months but is a former world champion. Roy Jones Jr. will fight former bare-knuckle boxer Bobby Gunn on February 17, 2017 Former P4P king Jones (64-9, 46 KOs), 47, has taken the surprise decision to fight on despite retirement looming, and he will take to the ring with a man who has not boxed since 2013.

  4. https://www.mmaweekly.com/khabib-nurmagomedov-ramzan-kadyrov-chechen-dictator-citizen-gift UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has reportedly met with and received gifts from Ramzan Kadyrov, the Head of the Chechen Republic. According to veteran MMA journalist Karim Zidan, Nurmagomedov met with Kadyrov and attended a dinner in his honor. The Chechen dictator allegedly made Nurmagomedov, who is Dagestani, an honorary citizen of Chechnya and gave him a new Mercedes. Kadyrov’s family has long held political power in the Chechnya. Kadyrov himself was president of Chechnya for several years before that office was abolished and he became the Head of the Chechen Republic. Kadyrov has been heavily criticized over the years, being accused of human rights abuses, including the suppression of women and alleged mass detention of people identified as homosexual or having conducted homosexual acts. UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov met with Ramzan Kadyrov and attended a dinner in his honour. Khabib was made an honourary citizen of Chechnya and was gifted a brand new Mercedes by the dictator.

  8. Who is the first one to take their first L? And before anyone comes in with a smart **** comment "Jon Jones already has a loss" Im not recognising that time they DQ'd Jon for beating the **** out of Hamill too badly lol. I haven't included every fighter in UFC currently undefeated more so just those men and women who are currently ranked. Other undefeated fighters I have included in the poll are Tai Tuivasa 10-0 Ketlen Viera 10-0 Deiveson Figueiredo 15-0 Aspen Ladd 7-0 Tatiana Suarez 7-0 Dominick Reyes 10-0 So who do you think is the first one to lose? And who beats them?

    Which Undefeated Fighter Will Lose First?

    Tatiana is taking Rose's belt off her by the end of 2019. Reckon Reyes, Ladd and Figueiredo will have fought for the belt by then as well.

  14. Iron Fist Has Been Cancelled!!! Iron Fist has lost his chi. Netflix and Marvel have come to mutual decision to end the streaming series after two seasons. Apparently a much-improved second season was not enough for Marvel and Netflix to order a third season and the story of Danny Rand could end here, depending on what the character's involvement in any potential future Defenders series might be. Marvel and Netflix delivered the following joint statement to Deadline: “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.” At some point one of the Marvel Netflix shows was going to become the first one to get cancelled or negotiate its own end. Iron Fist, as undoubtedly the weakest of its peers, would have been a good bet to be the first to get the Stormbreaker of cancellation. Still, this is unexpected to say the least. Not only was season two of the show a lot better than the first, but it ended on some pretty massive cliff-hanger's. Here are the three biggest questions im gutted we wont get any answers to. Daughter's of the Dragon - The chemistry and side story between Misty and Coleen was one of the best parts of the series and with Coleen now being left with the power of the Iron Fist and Misty Knight teasing an "upgrade" version of her arm you would have had a great duo to move the focus on to next season if you wanted Danny' story to take a back seat. Orson Randall's Pistols and the new powers of the Iron Fist - Our whole understanding of how the Iron Fist works is changed by the end of season 2. We've seen Davos master using it with not one but two hands, Coleen can now channel the power of the fist through her sword and Danny can even shoot chi bullets. The Third Alter of Mary Walker - Although she never really took centre stage as the main villain she was my personal favourite throughout the season. And at the end we learn there is an even more dangerous third personality of Mary Walker that has yet to be seen again.

  18. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/ufc/ufc-featherweight-champ-max-holloway-opens-up-on-struggles-with-depression/ The year 2018 has not been particularly kind to UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. The Hawaiian champ has been scheduled for three fights — a title defense against Frankie Edgar, a last-minute lightweight fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and a title defense against Brian Ortega — but not one has come to fruition. Speaking on Good Show with Ben Ennis & JD Bunkis on Wednesday, Holloway divulged that in the wake of this string of cancelled fights, he’s been battling depression. “It just helped me as a person realize that sometimes you gotta slow things down to get things back correct,” Max Holloway said (transcript via MMA Fighting). “After this last one I dealt with some depression. I was talking about [NBA star DeMar] DeRozan. DeRozan talked about depression and that really shook me. He said that he wished that everybody was rich, that everybody in the world had money so they could understand that money does not make you happy. “Depression is real and that really hit me hard. I was going through a phase where I wasn’t talking to no one. Only my son. Me and my son would do stuff but I was talking to no one. If I wanted to you I would call you but if people were reaching out to me I was putting myself away. Since I was in that situation, now I’m able to talk about it and I can tell people that’s not the way to do it. The way to do it is talk to your family, talk to your friends, be with everyone because you don’t know when things can change. Life changes on a dime so live life to the fullest.” Having struggled with depression, Max Holloway wants to remind his fans that it’s important to talk to the people that care about you when you’re struggling. “Don’t be scared to look for help,” Holloway said. “Depression is real. . . It’s crazy and all these guys, us athletes, that keep thinking we’re superheroes. I like to think I’m a superhero but superheroes got to fight their demons too sometimes.” Got to be honest not something I ever expected to hear from Max, the dude constantly looks infectiously happy and positive.
  19. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/ufc/dustin-poirier-breaks-silence-on-withdrawal-from-ufc-230-fight-with-nate-diaz/ Earlier this week, the MMA community was rocked by the unfortunate news that Dustin Poirier had been forced out of his UFC 230 scrap with Nate Diaz. Shortly thereafter, we learned that the UFC would not be giving Diaz a replacement opponent for the November 3 card, and that he was off the card too. Given that this was arguably the best fight on the UFC 230 bill, this was massively disappointing news. Speaking on Twitter on Thursday evening, Dustin Poirier issued his first statement since his withdrawal from the card. While he did not specify what kind of injury he sustained, he assured he considers this a “minor” setback, and that he’s working hard to heal up quickly. “Small setbacks happen,” Dustin Poirier said of his injury on Thursday. “I’m flying out to LA next week to get a second opinion on my injury and I’ll have an idea of when I can return to compete, I can’t wait to get back in the Octagon! Thank you all for the support” When Dustin Poirier is healthy enough to return to the cage, who would you like to see him fight? Do you think the UFC will be able to re-book his fight with Nate Diaz?
  20. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/exclusive-eryk-anders-announces-he-got-a-new-contract-by-taking-short-notice-thiago-santos-fight/ Eryk Anders has had a busy year. The middleweight fought Lyoto Machida in the main event of UFC Fight Night 125 in Brazil in February. He then fought Tim Williams at UFC Fight Night 135 in August, and then accepted a quick turnaround for another main event fight against Thiago Santos in late September. Anders will also be fighting at UFC 231 in December against Elias Theodorou. Eryk Anders had a very hard fight against Williams, with the momentum going back and forth before Anders got the head kick knockout win in the third round. The hope was the former college football player would take a break and fight in December, but an opportunity came to fight Santos in the main event of UFC Fight Night 137 just a month after his fight against Williams. The natural middleweight took the fight on just days’ notice, and the fight was at light heavyweight, not at middleweight. Even with all these extra variables, it was an easy call for Anders to accept the fight. “They had to come with the stimulus package. I got a new contract out of the deal and a couple incentives,” Eryk Anders said in an interview with BJPENN.COM. “I like to fight, and that was my favourite fight regardless. Me and my manager, it wasn’t hard for them to come with a little more, a little more cheese. The offer they made made it really hard to say no to them.” After accepting the fight and getting a new deal, Anders was off to Brazil with little to no training. Through the early phases of the fight, he held his own, but after the third round, he was completely drained and collapsed to the ground to try and catch his breath. The fight was then waved off by the referee. “I had been sparring, I had been doing other stuff,” Anders said. “I think that if I didn’t fight a month before, if I had just a little bit longer to get ready before the fight… That is a pretty good scrap me and Tim Williams had. I needed some time to heal up and rest and let some stuff heal up and what not. “[After that fight] I sat down for a week and did some light sparring and moving around, no cardio, strength or conditioning nothing like that,” Anders continued. “I think if I could change one variable in that Santos fight… if I don’t fight a month before, if I get a little bit of time before the fight, I think I come out of that fight with my hand raised.” Although Anders lost the fight, his stock went up due to his incredible, short-notice performance. And while some thought that would be it for Anders for the year, he was offered a fight with Theodorou shortly thereafter. Anders had been gunning for Theodorou for some time. After helping the UFC by accepting the Santos fight on short notice, he believes the promotion rewarded him with the fight he wanted. “It wasn’t a verbal incentive or anything like that, but they know that is the fight I wanted,” Anders said. “That is the fight I asked for. I kind of did them a solid by stepping in and fighting Santos. They kind of rewarded me with the offer.” Eryk Anders’ UFC 231 fight with Elias Theodorou will occur at middleweight, his preferred weight class. Having battled Santos at light heavyweight, however, he seems to be comfortable taking fights at light heavyweight in the future. “I think for my career, middleweight is definitely the route I need to go,” he said. “I can fight at 205. Like I said I love to fight, I’m down to fight anybody. I wanna make my run at 185. If they offer me enticing fights at 205 then for sure I am going to take those.” Do you think Eryk Anders can take out Elias Theodorou at UFC 231 this December?
  21. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/ufc/chael-sonnen-has-a-message-for-fans-who-believe-conor-mcgregor-deserves-blame-for-ufc-229-brawl/ Last weekend, shortly after Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor in the UFC 229 main event, a massive brawl broke out between the two fighters’ teams. Nurmagomedov leapt over the side of the Octagon and attacked McGregor’s training partner Dillon Danis, while McGregor got into it with several of Nurmagomedov’s teammates inside the cage. It was a scene of pure, unbridled chaos that took several minutes to quell. Ever since this incident, the MMA community has been struggling to assign blame. There are some fans that believe that Khabib Nurmagomedov started it all by jumping over the cage and attacking Dillon Danis. There are others, meanwhile, that feel that Conor McGregor deserves the blame because he threw the first clearly visible punch of the skirmish. Bellator star and MMA analyst Chael Sonnen has heard both sides of this blame game, and he’s got a message for anyone who questions McGregor’s choice to throw a punch after Nurmagomedov attacked Danis. In Sonnen’s eyes, McGregor had every right to uncork a punch, and he cannot be blamed for this post-fight brawl. “First up, they can shove it up their ****,” Sonnen told MMA Fighting during the Bellator 208 media day on Thursday (transcript via Bloody Elbow). “That whole thing was created by some wimp somewhere about ‘the other guy has to throw the first punch.’ If you’re engaging me aggressively, and I let you within an arm’s reach, I’m a sucker if I allow you to throw the first punch.” “The first thing you do – and remember this, if your dads weren’t smart enough to tell you. If you learned how to fight from your moms, or from your wimpy teachers in your liberal school district, you don’t let somebody get within an arm’s reach of you when they got that look in their eye. You keep them back, and if they break the distance, you always hit them first.” “Conor McGregor, who I’m not a defender of, was where he was supposed to be, doing what he was supposed to do. He was a licensed fighter following the unified rule which says in front of everything else, you protect yourself at all times. He gets up on that cage and is confronted by somebody who is not licensed to be there and is not supposed to be there. He’s not doing what he’s supposed to do and a melee has broken out.” “Conor McGregor had every reasonable right to throw at him, and that did not start the fight. Khabib had flown over the Octagon and thrown a jumping kick at into Dillon Danis. So, first off, your facts are wrong that Conor threw the first punch. It’s factually incorrect.” “Secondly, the unified rules state: ‘You protect yourself at all times.’ Conor was where he was supposed to be, in an Octagon, protecting himself against somebody who had come in to do him harm.” Do you agree with Chael?

"I would like to address @ufc Why didn't you fire anyone when their team attacked the bus and injured a couple of people? They could have killed someone there, why no one says anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family? Why do you have to punish my team, when both teams fought. If you say that I started it, then I do not agree, I finished what he had started. In any case, punish me, @zubairatukhugov has nothing to do with that. If you think that I’ll keep silent then you are mistaken. You canceled Zubaira’s fight and you want to dismiss him just because he hit Conor. But don’t forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. if you decide to fire him, you should know that you’ll lose me too. We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my Brother. If you still decide to fire him, don’t forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself. And one more thing, you can keep my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won’t get stuck in your throat. We have defended our honor and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end. #Brothers"
