  1. UFC president Dana White won’t be leaving the UFC anytime soon. While guest hosting an episode of LVSportsBiz's Guerilla Cross Raido the UFC don announced he recently signed a new 10-year deal with the company. While White will continue his usual business ventures for another decade, he also displayed interest in dabbling in new endeavors. One potential pursuit White is considering is reuniting with former UFC owners Lorenzo & Frank Fertitta in their quest to purchase an NFL franchise. “TMZ just got Lorenzo the other day in New York, and Lorenzo confirmed that they are looking at NFL teams,” White said. He added, “I heard the Panthers, that the Broncos were available, that the Chargers might be up for sale. We’ll have to see how this plays out but yeah, if they buy a team, I’m in. I will partner up with them.” According to White, this isn’t the first time the UFC president and the Fertitta brothers have joined forces to consider purchasing a pro sports franchise. “We had looked at something a couple years ago, not in the NFL,” White said. “In the NBA, we looked at a team and we got outbid, me and the brothers.” When host Alan Snel asked if the team he was referring to was the Houston Rockets, White raised his eyebrows and smirked. “Might be,” he laughed. The Rockets were purchased by Lorenzo Fertitta’s cousin Tilman Fertitta in 2017. Regardless of the potential franchises up for grabs, the idea of teaming up with the Fertittas is tremendously appealing to White. The UFC president even envisions a day when the three once again work together on a daily basis. “I would love to be back in business with them and do something,” White said. “Obviously, I’m very busy and very focused over here. Financially, I’d jump in with those guys. I just signed a new 10-year deal with the UFC, so in ten years, I can do something with them every day.”

    Future Contenders League 2019

    RULES  1. Players select one unranked fighter from every division (I will probably exclude Women's Flyweight and Featherweight since I don't know if they will be fully up and running by then and there isn't really enough depth yet.) 2. No picking fighters who are already currently ranked at a weight class and are away to move up or down to another. 3. No fighters who are suspended will be eligible to use. Pretty sure Machida was still ranked in the top 15 when he was suspended even though he didn't get dropped right back in to the rankings when he returned it could produce some unfair advantages. 4. Posters will be given 24 hours to make their pick. If picks are not made in the 24 hour timeframe you forfeit your pick (this will help get the game going reasonably quickly. If we let everyone pick at their own leisure we'd likely be waiting months to get started.) 5. After the initial process of selecting your fighters you can recruit one new UR fighter every week. 6. If you edit your post in any way when choosing a fighter the pick is totally voided. 7. You cannot pick a fighter who has just won over the weekend until the next weeks rankings come out. (this is to avoid people picking up underdogs who be get a big unexpected win and then jump up the rankings.) 8. Winners will be decided by who's chosen contenders can rise highest in to the UFC rankings. They will be measured firstly by who can get the most fighters in to the rankings if tied it will be judged secondly by the combined lowest total of all your rankings and thirdly if still tied by who has the single lowest ranked fighter. Most Ranked Fighters 1. RadLad: Weili Zhang 6th, Ian Heinisch 11th, Macy Chiasson 11th, Jonny Walker 12th, Vicente Luque 15th, 2. Jolldan: Jennifer Maia 8th, Blagoy Invanov 13th, Calvin Kattar 15th, Nikita Krylov 15th 3. Andy Wang: Ben Askren 5th, Poliana Botelho 15th, Sijara Eubanks 15th 4.

  5. UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo is not just a tremendous fighter but also an interesting character. While some members of the MMA community find his personality charming, however, not everybody is on board with it. File former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley into that latter group. Woodley sounded off on Cejudo on a recent episode of The Hollywood Beatdown. “Henry Cejudo, sit down somewhere, dog,” Woodley said (transcript via MMA News). “Sit down somewhere; you’re annoying everybody. “He is a phenomenal fighter. It’s amazing that he’s been able to win an Olympic gold medal, which is more important to me than a UFC belt, because it’s the hardest thing that you can do in combat sports,” Woodley added, praising the accomplishments of Henry Cejudo. “He beat Demetrious Johnson, a pound for pound legend, won a belt in two divisions. So what I’m saying is that his resume is crazy in a very short period of time. But when you start doing that extra stuff, oof, just stop.” One issue Tyron Woodley seemed to take issue with was the costume Henry Cejudo wore to the UFC 238 pre-fight media day. He thinks UFC’s newest two-division champion would be wise to real in the theatrics a little bit. “Hey, man, you a beast,” he said. “Keep killing it. Keep it up in the Octagon. Tone down the extra-ness by like 10. Take it down 10, and you set.”

    UFC dead in Ireland/UK now

    If they go with just the numbered cards which im assuming is the model they will use then its roughly 30% of the cards per year.
  8. Earlier this year, news broke that UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw had tested positive for the injectable-only banned substance EPO. Dillashaw was stripped of his title, and suspended for two years by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for this crime. Though he quickly admitted to his mistakes on social media, Dillashaw has been quite quiet since this unfortunate news surfaced. Speaking on Chael Sonnen’s You're Welcome podcast, however, the former bantamweight champion opened up on the ordeal in a way that he has not done yet. Apparently, it had a lot to do with his need to make 125 pounds for a flyweight title fight with Henry Cejudo. See what TJ Dillashaw had to say below (transcript via LowKickMMA😞 “I’ve hidden out, I haven’t done any interviews, I haven’t done – I’ve just kind of hidden away from – there’s things I’ve been wanting to say, but I didn’t, because I don’t want to create any excuses,” TJ Dillashaw said. “Let’s start off, first and foremost, I cheated. I don’t want to run around that, that’s why even I announced it when USADA was coming out. I didn’t want to create excuses. “It was like, look, this is it, I did it, I want to be upfront with you guys. I didn’t want to create any excuses of why I did it, I knew eventually I would talk about it, and this is now, it’s the first time I have. I was so into doing something that has never been done before. Not the two champs. Obviously, I wanted that more than anything, I wanted to prove I’m the best in the world, but was also to drop that weight class. I’m a lean 135’er. I wanted to drop the weight class to go to the 125s, and I played it off to how easy it was going to be. ‘I can do this, no problem, I always cut weight.’ “And I pushed my body to the extreme. About six weeks out, my body started to crash, I started to get tired, I started feeling I didn’t want to wake up for practice. I test everything. I test my hair for toxins, I test my saliva for hormone levels – I want to be the most optimized athlete I possibly can. And I started crashing. “I decided to take something I knew I wasn’t allowed to take,” TJ Dillashaw concluded. “It’s called Procrit, it’s an anemia medication that would help me, not only make the weight, but be myself. And, you know, I’m not mad I did it, because I don’t think I could’ve taken the fight. I’m obviously going to own up that I cheated, I got caught – it’s a rough one man. It’s hard not to hate yourself a little bit. To – I don’t know. It’s a tough one.” What do you think of this explanation from TJ Dillashaw?
  9. Henry Cejudo made history Saturday night (June 8, 2019) by becoming Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) fourth champ-champ after defeating Marlon Moraes in the main event of UFC 238 in Chicago, Illinois. But “The Messenger” isn’t done just yet, as he says his plans of moving up to Featherweight to capture yet another division title aren’t a joke. “Why not? Are you guys going to count me out again,” asked Cejudo on The Ariel Helwani MMA Show. With former Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar lined up to face current 145-pound champion Max Holloway at UFC 240, Cejudo says he’d love to face “The Answer” should he take down “Blessed.” “The fight I would really want, and this has everything to do with competition; if Frankie Edgar wins this fight against Max Holloway that’s the fight I am interested in,” he said. With Frankie being one of the shorter fighters in the division, Cejudo says they size up against each other well and Edgar won’t have a huge size advantage over him. “We had talked about it before, captain Eric mentioned it. I like his stature, I think the height seems very well, he is a wrestler. I think if he wins the fight against Max Holloway, then me and him can throw down,” he added while confirming he has no personal beef with “The Answer.” “It’s nothing against Frankie, I just want to compete against the best. I know he took offense when I called him out with Marlon Moraes, I know he didn’t believe in me...but why not? Why can’t I win another belt. They have been telling me I can’t. They told me I was going to get knocked out by Marlon, they told me I’d get stopped by Demetrious Johnson, T.J. Dillashaw.” will put him in a class of his own and solidify his status as the top pound for pound fighter in the world once and for all. “The sky is the limit, I want to challenge my mind, body and soul. If he wins this fight and he wants to do it, let’s make it happen,” he concluded. Whether or not Dana White and Co. actually allow Cejudo to challenge for one more strap is another story, as having three division titles held by one person could really upset every fighter competing in those weight classes.
  10. UFC San Antonio finally has a main event, according to a report from Kevin Iole. The July 20 card will now be topped by a five-round welterweight fight between former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos and streaking Brit Leon Edwards. As Iole implies, the UFC was considering moving a light heavyweight bout between Luke Rockhold and Jan Blachowicz from the UFC 239 main card to the UFC San Antonio main event. Because Rockhold was busy with a commercial shoot on the day of UFC San Antonio, however, the promotion called up Rafael dos Anjos and Leon Edwards and evidently made it worth their whiles. The promotion also briefly considered having a Valentina Shevchenko vs. Liz Carmouche title fight headline the card, per Ariel Helwani. What do you think of this new main event? Who do you think will come out on top between Rafael dos Anjos and Leon Edwards?
  11. After he defeated Marlon Moraes to become a two-division UFC champion at UFC 238, UFC flyweight and bantamweight champ Henry Cejudo announced that he hopes to move up to the featherweight division in the future and challenge for that division’s belt too. Alex Volkanovski, arguably the top contender in the UFC featherweight division, is advising Henry Cejudo to think again. “Stay in your lane, Henry. Come on mate,” Volkanovski told Submission Radio recently (transcript via MMA Fighting). “Honestly, what he’s done is unbelievable. It was good on him. I actually picked him to win. I didn’t expect him to have so many problems earlier. I knew the guy was powerful. Maybe the ankle was why was he was sort of cowering to the kicks a little bit, if you know what I mean. . . So for him to overcome that and get it done, good on him. Him coming to 145, you gotta be quick in this division, but we’re still quick and we’re just a whole another powerful type of beast. And we’re a stacked division, a lot of very tough guys in our division that I don’t think he’ll want any of that. But maybe he’ll give it a crack, maybe UFC will let him do it. But yeah, that will change quick.” Earlier this week, Henry Cejudo added that he hopes to battle Frankie Edgar for the featherweight title, should Edgar defeat the champ Max Holloway at UFC 240 in July. For Alex Volkanovski, who is expected to get a fight with the Edgar-Holloway winner, this comment from Cejudo didn’t go over well. “Obviously I was dirty on it,” Volkanovski said. “Like, what the hell? But, you know, again, I always try and stay positive. Even when you’re in a hospital bed worrying about your leg being chopped off, getting the title off you, you know what I mean? I was hit pretty hard all at once. But at the same time I was like, well, it is what it is, I’m still looking, let’s get this leg better. I still want that title by the end of the year. So, you know, that still looks like that’s the plans anyway. So, let them fight. “If anyone was gonna grass cut the title in front of me I’m glad it was Frankie. Frankie was someone that does deserve it. He’s been around, he’s done great things for the sport, he is a top bloke. So, good on him. But at the same time, if he wins or someone gets injured on July 26th, I’m filling in for that spot and I’ll take that title on. I’ll be ready. I’m gonna fight fit, I’m gonna stay on weight. But if not, whoever wins can take me on later that year. I want that belt before the end of 2019. That’s my goal. So one more fight and I want that belt before the end of the year.”
  12. On the heels of his reported release from the UFC, Justin Willis is calling for a loser-leaves-town fight with longtime heavyweight rival Tai Tuivasa “We’re fighting for a contract,” Willis told MMA Junkie on Wednesday. “Whoever loses gets cut. Don’t be a (expletive), homie. What side?” On the topic of that contract, which multiple outlets confirmed had been revoked following a “big miscommunication and a technical difficulty” with the UFC, Willis added: “Be patient.” “Pretty has a simple question for you,” he said of Tuivasa. “Yes or no, do you want to fight?”

  14. She honestly became the most unlikeable character of any of the Marvel Netflix show's for me last season she just morphed from a character who yes had problems but who always tried to fix them and 9/10 was doing the right thing. Season 2 she morphed into a complete whiney, selfish, manipulative chick who was just out for herself. Advice to live by Mauro Its just because I know that when I do sit down and watch them both I will be like this is awesome but will left with the bitter taste of knowing this is the last of it Honestly even though Iron Fist season 1 was terrible I was gutted after it got cancelled after season 2 because by the finale it had improved so much from the first season it almost felt like a completely new show and the thought of another season of it wasn't a chore this time round I was intrigued. HELL YEAH! Just add in Moon Knight & Blade you've got a great squad for a Midnight Sons movie.
  15. 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.
  16. I still haven't managed to get motivated to watch DD Season 3 or Punisher Season 2 just because I know I won't be getting anymore. Legit hope Jessica kills Trish by the end of this season lol she was by far the most annoying thing about last season.

  19. Size doesn't matter, of course... But surely all of us are a little tempted by 292 inches. Earlier this year Samsung unveiled The Wall TV, which came in at a whopping 219 inches. Clearly though, this wall was deemed a little modest, as the electronics giants have now announced The Wall Luxury - for those who felt the regular Wall TV was a little modest. Skip to about 2:25 to get a sense of the scale of this thing. At 292 inches, the telly is only suitable for people with an extremely spacious living room. As the name suggests, it is designed to transform your entire wall into a TV. It is 'configurable and customizable' though, meaning you can have it as small as 73 inches (which isn't that small) with 2K definition, or you can have it at its full size with 8K definition. Remarkably though, the high-tech telly only has a depth of 30mm. Due to the current lack of 8K TV out there, The Wall Luxury will also 'upscale' regular TV to near 8K quality. It is also designed to never be turned off, as its self-emitting diodes have a 100,000 hour lifetime. Instead, when you're not watching Gogglebox across your entire wall, the TV will go into 'ambient mode', and will display curated artwork, photographs and paintings - again, all 'customizable'. Mark Quiroz, vice president of product marketing for Samsung Electronics America, said: "Throughout the last twelve months, we've closely monitored interior design and technology trends to shape the product planning and development of The Wall Luxury. "We set out to create a product unlike anything else - matching the lifestyle and taste of those looking for the most exclusive and premium visual experiences in their homes." The box/wall also comes with some kind of AI technology that is kind of hard to understand, so here's how Samsung explains it: "The Wall Luxury is also equipped with the AI picture quality engine, Quantum Processor Flex. "A machine learning-based picture quality engine, Quantum Processor Flex delivers optimised picture quality scene-by-scene regardless of the original source format. The processor analyses image data to automatically calibrate the original lower resolution content to align with the modular screen's resolution." The TV will go on sale globally in July, though it is not clear how much it will cost. The safe money though is on it being well out of all of our budgets, given that their 98-inch Q950R 8K QLED has an official retail price of £99,999 ($126,749).

    Was looking through Airbnb seen they have an experiences section now as well so thought I would give it a look baffled to discover people are literally charging between £60-£100+ for them to take photos for your Instagram. That's it I officially feel old lol.
