Forbes is reporting that Brock will be fighting for UFC again later in the year. His suspension will run out relatively soon, and apparently he just got put back into the testing program.

Over / Under on number of failed tests this time: 1.5.

Because there was no other vehicle by which the spectacle of Floyd Mayweather shouting "FORM VOLTRON" to command his security detail to surround Conor McGregor could enter the universe.

I'm never 100% sure if you're kidding, or if Money literally shouted this.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor Toe to Toe Preview - An unfortunately complete breakdown

Quote:
Floyd Mayweather is a woman-beating illiterate who proclaims himself the best boxer ever. This is true if (and only if) it is taken as fact that boxing is an entirely commercial undertaking, where brain damage is traded for cash and success is measured in the ratio. With unappealing fights and little genuine charisma with which to build a brand, Mayweather has elevated bout selection to an art form, and combines a true genius in the ring with an undeniably greater genius for picking opponents at just the right moment. So, if you quantify boxing as being a distant relative of hedge fund or stock management, then Floyd Mayweather is your rightful personal GOAT, and also it may be time to ask yourself whether you are a trading algorithm...? Because that is an awful and depressing way of looking at fights.

[...]

McGregor is just your normal hard working, humble white guy from Ireland who wears mink coats in July, rocks out with his cock out, and publicly demands the cock he likes to put on display be commandeered by Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey. At the same time, of course. You can see why athletic commissioner Bob Bennett thinks McGregor is a “young warrior.” Probably because Bob checked out his junk. The 29 year old Irishman has already dominated mixed martial arts (not boxing), becoming an all time mixed martial arts great after winning the belt two years ago, losing to a Mike Tyson sized Nate Diaz, and then barely avenging that loss to an even bigger Nate Diaz, who probably walks around at post-career Serraweight. He won another title against some guy who hasn’t won a fight since. This is epic by any measure of the word.
This is going to be a goddamn shit show.

I saw an ad on the side of a bar for an upcoming pay per view between Canelo and Golovkin. And I was like Holy shit what.

The problem is that while Canelo is very, very good -- fast, top ring IQ, can crack with both hands, can cut weight to give himself a massive advantage at the 154-pound limit -- there is a man in the division who is better. Gennady Golovkin would fucking kill him, especially at 160 pounds. It is known.
Is this actually happening?

If you speak of it above a whisper, the waveform will collapse and we will be plunged into a universe where Steve Cunningham fights Nondescript Pole #17 on ShoBox for ever

Note that last year's assessment is somewhat dated in light of Golovkin's more recent outings, which may or may not have shown the effects of advancing age. He's still the betting favorite but nobody in the boxing punditariat is staking the family jewels on it.

This is falling back on the argument from authority but I have a hard time imagining that Canelo and his handlers would have taken the fight if they didn't believe pretty strongly that he could win it.

Today would have been the 79th birthday of Billy Robinson, the English catch wrestler who, along with Karl Gotch, helped shape what would eventually become the framework of Japanese puroresu and influence many stars of early MMA, including Kazushi Sakuraba, Josh Barnett, and Minoru Suzuki.

Celebrate by dropping a double-arm suplex on the first person you see today.
