  1. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/ufc/conor-mcgregor-claims-he-is-fighting-frankie-edgar-this-december/ Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor claims that he will be seeing Frankie Edgar in the Octagon this December. Earlier this afternoon, the UFC took to Twitter to wish their former lightweight title holder, Edgar, a Happy Birthday. Shortly after the post was made public, Conor McGregor replied to the tweet with the following:

    Weidman vs. Reyes Predictions

    With the main event of the card this weekend being somewhat of an unknown I thought it would be fun to see what everyone's predictions are for the fight this weekend. With Weidman moving up to Lightheavyweight after experiencing the worst skid of his career. And Reyes looking to continue his winning ways after what has to be the closest fight of his career so far where he just barley (and controversially) got the nod over Volkan. Team Weidman Team Reyes @Jolldan I will start us off by announcing my allegiance to team Reyes.
  3. One of the most popular fighters on the UFC roster, “The Korean Superboy” Doo Ho Choi is set to return later this year at UFC Busan. But while he was rumored to fight rival Cub Swanson in a rematch, he has been given a different opponent. The UFC announced late Wednesday night that The Korean Superboy will take on Canadian Charles Jourdain at UFC on ESPN+ 23, which takes place December 21 at Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea. The matchup comes as a bit of a surprise as Choi was rumored to be fighting Cub Swanson in a rematch. Both men asked for the fight, and fans seemed to be intrigued by a potential rematch of the 2016 MMA “Fight of the Year.” The problem is that Swanson was injured during his fight at UFC Tampa against Kron Gracie, and won’t be able to fight until 2020. The UFC wanted to keep The Korean Superboy on the UFC Busan card and so they needed to find another opponent. That man will be “Air” Jourdain.

    My official car thread

    Forgot to include this one that even though it was a hybrid I thought was pretty cool. The Lamborghini Asterion their first attempt at going hybrid. When I was speaking to one of the tour operators she said it was actually this they went back to when designing their new hybrid which I think goes on sale next year The Sian, which looks completely mental. Which im really happy to see as the Huracan was far to reserved for a Lamborghini (in my opinion anyway) Yeah Im also wondering how it goes when an Arab woman tries to arrest an Arab man lol, I have family that stayed in Dubai so visited quite a few times and a lot of the locals weren't shy in the slightest about occasionally smacking their wife up.
  8. A team of archaeologists working in Egypt have uncovered 20 ancient wooden coffins close to the city of Luxor. The intricately patterned coffins were discovered at Asasif; an ancient necropolis located on the west bank of the River Nile. Sealed shut and well preserved, the unearthed coffins bear intact inscriptions and have also maintained some of their bright colours. Its easy to imagine how imposing they would have looked upon first being closed. The sarco****i were discovered in two layers of a large tomb, with one level of elaborate coffins layered carefully on top of the other. In a press release, the Egypt Antiquities Ministry hailed this find as being ‘one of the largest and most important discoveries’; emphasising the large number of coffins as well as the excellent state of preservation. According to this press release: Authorities have released a number of photographs which show antiquities minister Khaled El-Anany examining the coffins, alongside Supreme Council of Antiquities’ secretary general, Dr. Mostafa Waziri. According to CNN, nobles and officials were laid to rest in Al-Assasif during the time of the pharaohs, with the site known to be a place of archaeological significance. Archaeologists digging in the area have previously made discoveries which date right back to Egypt’s 18th dynasty, a period which began at approximately 1539 B.C. As reported by BBC News, the majority of tombs discovered at Asasif date back to ancient Egypt’s Late Period (664-332BCE). However, previously unearthed tombs have dated back even earlier to the 18th Dynasty (1550-1292BCE), the era of famous pharaohs such as Hatshepsut, Amenhotep III and Tutankhamun. At the time of writing, it has not been specified exactly what period in ancient Egyptian history this newly revealed tomb belongs to. Or indeed, who it is who lies inside the eerily beautiful coffins.

    Would genuinely consider a career as a cop over there just for the cars and the fact I don't think I've ever met an Arab I didn't think I could body🤣

    SN43's Movie Discussion Thread!

    Im getting Rush vibes😄 plus Damon & Bale will definitely need to go see this. Agreed the fight scene with Pitt & Bana was one of my favourite parts of the movie, really sold him as a demi-god without having any of the more fantastical elements. This was actually a lot better than I expected it to be, solid action set pieces anyway. My biggest gripe was that any time the two of them were fighting their movement seemed to go super cartoony was hard to ignore.
  11. Im thinking this myself, Conor hasn't made 145 in nearly 4 years and the multiple fights at WW & LW make me think there's no way he's getting back down to that again. Tbh I think Edgar would take this at Middleweight if it got him the fight, he's just turned 38 and has a hell of a lot of mileage on his body, plus this would surely be his biggest pay day ever.

    Yeah would be going solo again. I have heard that from so many people mate I don't know what it is though I've always had a real weird feeling about sleeping in a room with a heap of people I don't know, reckon its just one of those things that once I do it I will realise I was just overreacting.

    What are you doing right now?

    Just got an email from 23&me that they have updated their ancestry results so went and checked mine out, still white as chit 🤣 but added a little flavour with 1.6% Spanish or Portuguese. And 1.8% Scandinavian. Me an techno Viking are basically bros 🤣
  16. Yeah if its 32 degrees in Scotland we may as well be on the surface of the sun😂
  17. Ah I see I think just the sheer fact it looked like nice weather in the pic through me off lol.
  18. Congrats Oz hope all goes well, the castle looks a nice one mate architecture looks like its got more of a Spanish style. Been years since I have been to a castle wedding, last one I was at was Glamis Castle pretty sure last time I spent the majority of the time yapping to the groundskeeper who was telling me the history of the place😂.

  21. Three workers at an assisted living facility have been arrested on suspicion of running a fight club with some of the dementia patients. Marilyn Latish McKey, 32, Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20, and Taneshia Deshawn Jordan, 26, have been accused of trying to get fights started between several patients at the North Carolina facility. They were fired after the June incident at Danby House and police have been gathering evidence ever since. Lieutenant Gregory Dorn told Fox 8: "When you're talking about someone who can't take care of themselves, we've got to give specific attention to that." In one incident, police say a 73-year-old patient started fighting with a 70-year-old patient and the three women stood by and not only encouraged the brawl but also filmed it. Both patients live with dementia. In the video, you can hear one of the people screaming: "Let go, help me, help me, let go." A separate incident allegedly saw McKey push the same 73-year-old patient into her room while the other two filmed. According to Fox 8, McKey has been charged with two counts of assault on an individual with a disability, whereas Tyson and Jordan have been charged with one count each of assault on an individual with a disability. The facility has released a statement since the arrests and charges were announced. "Danby House has a zero-tolerance policy for the mistreatment of those in our care and as such, McKey, Tyson, and Jordan were terminated immediately in June when community management was alerted to this situation," the facility said. "Administrators have been working closely with the Winston-Salem Police Department throughout its investigation to ensure justice is served. Additional staff training and a more rigorous vetting process for all new and existing employees at Danby House has been implemented."
  22. 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.

    One of the few things that is a bit jarring in this current political climate is just how much hate people get even if they no longer work for trump, that Splicer dude is doing dancing with the stars and reading some of the comments you'd think he was the one down at the border rounding folks up😂
