Frankly, you have much more skin in this than I do and also follow things more closely. I will say, anyone who doesn't want to see her rewarded for cheating is still correct in feeling that way. And no, "they're all on 'roids" or "it was only one dirty test" aren't valid excuses, because A, they shouldn't all be on 'roids in the first place, even though it's hardly a secret most of them are, and B, One Dirty Test = About 100 times she most likely cheated the test and didn't get caught. Professional athletes who go on the gas typically stay on the gas, most of them don't even cycle off, ever, until they're done competing for good.

So regardless of her talent, I completely understand why some people don't want to see her rewarded for cheating and frankly, they're right. I mean if she's as much of "an animal" as people say, well, I should only hope so or you'd better find a new pharmacist. Frankly, the fact that one woman found a chemical cocktail to make her bigger and hit harder than most other women is a little less than impressive, to me.

I can also understand why UFC wouldn't want to push a known abuser. Hurts their PR. Makes perfect sense. Gotta protect the brand.

Garcia and Marquez set up Kahn and Pacquiao for those KO punches respectively. Kahn should not have exchanged with Garcia and like Pacquaio should not have jumped into that punch when he had Marquez on the ropes and was breaking him down. Not really Roach's fault but whatever, we'll see tonight.

There's more too. I believe there was one guy a couple months ago in the main event of a TruTV boxing. the name escapes me.

Canelo won a very technical and evenly fought bout. Canelo was just too strong. Cotto did well, but his lack of accuracy hurt him in the end. It was quite a show IMO, here's hoping GGG and Canelo throw down sometime next year.

I can't believe fury beat him! I thought Wlad would beat Wilder & Fury then retire.

I KNOW
Big day for boxing yesterday. (especially in the UK)
Amir Iman was TKO'd by Chicago's Adrian Granados (whoot whoot)
Erol Spence had another KO win
James DeGale successfully defended his title against Lucian Bute
and Fury wins by UD against Dr Steel Hammer Wladimir Klitkchso.
Also they had a Rocky marathon on Spike
Next Week looking forward to the battle of Brooklyn between "Miracle Man" Danny Jacobs vs "Kid Coco" Peter Quillen. I got Jacobs by Split Decision

Colour me not flabbergasted that the Patriots lost. Denver defence was still the same without Manning present, and it would be down to the replacement to keep up with Brady's scoring. He did. Snow joke

Angry Birds won again, but that was a bit of torture to watch. 49ers defence was MUCH better than in the first game they played!

hmm

Well i dont see how Manning not playing would effect Denvers defense considering he's the QB. But it was a fairly surprising win. He'll likely be Denvers QB moving forward. Peyton likely retires after this season.

Falcons lost again. Same trend, defense does more than enough to win, offense turns it over. I hate kyle shanahan. Horrible OC. Matt Ryan having his worst season. Still in playoff contention though. So, some hope. And Devin Hester is back next week against Tampa.

Raiders won and steelers lost so good for them. Hoping the raiders make the playoffs. Texans and Indy are in a race for 1st in their division. Think i'm rooting for the texans more. Bills made it harder for themselves with this loss but all the talent is there for their team. Cheifs have impressed. Suprises, dissapointments, thats the NFL for ya.

wow

So glad i didnt buy that PPV or go out to see it. Lots of one sided fights. I can believe McGregor won but still it's crazy. If he was gonna win it was gonna be by ko. I can't argue that he's the best FW in the world right now but he got INCREDIBLY lucky on his win streak right now. Hand picked opponents and then a 3 punch ko of Aldo two of those after he was rocked & dropped.

Always been a fan of Aldo. That's gotta really suck. But Aldo has fought everypne and been through some wars, you could tell his reign was coming to an end as of late, same thing happened with Patricio Pitbull in Bellator. (now that's a fight i wanna see in Bellator! Aldo/Pitbill, but thats another conversation) Congrats to conor, with the brash personality it's hard to like the guy but he's backed it all up and it's just for the cameras and to make more money. He understands the game ans will retire a millionaire because of it. Still needs to fight a wrestler on a full camp but it's near impossible to pick against him now.

An instant rematch must happen in my opinion. If Cain, Silva, & Ronda got them (all thoroughly dominated in their fights) Aldo should definitely get one. I doubt he does though.

Jose Aldo has been very outspoken about reebok ans low fighter pay. McGregor is their cash cow. no way they let that rematch happen immdiately. They're ones to "teach" fighters a "lesson" for speaking negatively about the brand even though they constantly throw their fighters under the bus.

nice

That Barthelemy va Shafikov fight on PBC on SPIKE was sick! I could watch 12 rounds of fights like that all day. And that nasty nose break by mayweathers fighter to kick off the card was, well, nasty.

We got Saturday(thursday) night football tonight!

A stacked ufc card on FOX. Really excited for JDS vs Overeem. Glad it's finally happening.

^^ DAMNIT I missed it. Didn't even know there was a PBC card yesterday. Was watching the Bulls lose in QUADRUPLE OVERTIME.
Anyway looking forward to watching Andy Lee vs Billy Saunders tonight.

Rizin FF! NYE mma is back! The return of Fedor. A lot of great fights. One night tourney. Kickboxing & Sumo legends. Should be a blast.

Bradley-pacman 3 is a good fight also.
