Times of India reports that Daniel Cormier recently won the UFC light heavyweight championship, but some UFC fans believe that Daniel Cormier is not the true champion. Nonetheless, it seems that Daniel Cormier will defend his championship belt against Alexander Gustafsson later this year. UFC fans were extremely surprised with the announcement of this fight, and many people think that Dana White has lost his mind. Why should Alexander Gustafsson get the next title shot? Isn’t there someone else that could have faced Daniel Cormier next?
Dana White believes that Alexander Gustafsson is the number one contender for the championship, but we should remember that Gustafsson was just knocked out by Anthony Johnson. The matchup between Cormier and Gustafsson could prove to be exciting, but it just doesn’t make sense. I would much rather see Daniel Cormier versus Ryan Bader. Some fans are wondering why a matchup between Bader and Cormier would be interesting, but there is a ton of bad blood between Ryan Bader and Daniel Cormier. Why not get some good money out of Daniel Cormier vs Ryan Bader? Then, the UFC could place Alexander Gustafsson versus the winner. Yahoo! Sports recently published an article about this story, and much more information about the fight can be found there.
Donald Cerrone is an extremely exciting lightweight fighter in the UFC. He is currently on a 9-fight win streak, and he has been offered a title shot against Rafael Dos Anjos for the lightweight championship. However, Donald Cerrone doesn’t want to wait until December to fight inside of the octagon again. In fact, Donald Cerrone recently sent out a Twitter message saying that he wants a fight.
MMA Junkie recently posted an article that features an interview with “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone’s trainer. It’s clear that Donald Cerrone wants to get in and scrap as soon as possible, but his trainer has other things in mind. Donald Cerrone has been going to Greg Jackson’s gym for several years, and Cerrone and Jackson have developed a unique relationship. For the most part, Donald Cerrone and Greg Jackson agree with each other, but Greg Jackson is apparently very angry with Donald Cerrone.
According to Kevin Seawright, Greg Jackson recently said that Donald Cerrone will wait for his title-shot. However, Donald Cerrone is ready to fight right now, and this has caused a tremendous dispute between the fighter and coach. Nonetheless, Donald Cerrone is ready to fight, and no one is going to stop the ”Cowboy” from fighting.
Miguel Cotto was recently successful over his middleweight opponent. However, some people feel the Miguel Cotto has been fighting lackluster boxer over the last several years, and that might be true. Nonetheless, Beneful knows Miguel Cotto is the middleweight champion, and many people are interested in seeing him fight Gennady Golovkin.
Miguel Cotto is a great champion, but some people feel that he searches for advantages over his opponent in every fight. For instance, Miguel Cotto does not fight middleweight contenders at 160 lbs, and Cotto makes his opponents lose several pounds to fight him. Miguel Cotto has become the new catchweight king, and boxing fans are beginning to despise him for it. However, the boxing world will give Miguel Cotto credit if he fights Gennady Golovkin, and some boxing fans wouldn’t even care about the catchweight clause for that fight.
Miguel Cotto has agreed to fight Gennady Golovkin, but people don’t believe the fight is real just yet. Gennady Golovkin needs a lucrative opponent, and Miguel Cotto is one of the highest rated boxers of this generation. However, some boxing fans feel that Freddie Roach will advise Miguel Cotto to avoid Gennady Golovkin, but Miguel Cotto’s Puerto Rican pride may force him to fight the dangerous Russian bomber. Yahoo! Sports recently published an article about this story, and boxing fans can’t wait to hear the announcement of Miguel Cotto’s next fight.
UFC fighters and professional boxers have extremely hard careers. However, several of the athletes take steroids in order to enhance their skills, but taking steroids is clearly against the rules. Nonetheless, fighters have learned how to use performance enhancing drugs without getting caught.
Fortunately, Dr. Jennifer Walden confirms that it seems that something is being done about the steroid use in combat sports. USADA is a non-profit drug testing organization, and the company administers test for the UFC and boxing. USADA has promised to catch anyone who decides to cheat. However, it should be noted that USADA does not have the greatest track record. In the past, there have been several rumors that USADA treats certain Fighters differently than others.
For several years, boxing fans have speculated that Floyd Mayweather has been taking banned substances throughout his career. Most people will say that there is no evidence that Floyd Mayweather has taken steroids. However, Floyd Mayweather’s drug testing samples for the Miguel Cotto fight were tampered with. USADA was the only drug testing organization involved with the Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather fight, and many people are not too excited with the company’s involvement in the UFC.
Yahoo! Sports recently published an article about this story, and I’m not too thrilled about USADA’s involvement in the UFC. Dana White is the king of Las Vegas, and USADA is a Las Vegas company. I highly doubt that USADA would openly expose one of Dana White’s dirty fighters.
After a terrible start to the MLB season, the Texas Rangers may see those yellow roses bloom again.
The Rangers called up twenty-one year old power phenom Joey Gallo on Tuesday. The former first round pick, a third baseman, will take Adrian Beltre’s spot on the roster as he recovers from injury. Gallo wasted no time ingratiating himself to the Ranger faithful in Tuesday’s tilt versus the Chisox, going three for four with a mammoth home run in a win for Texas.
The former first round selection looks to help turn things around for the 27-25 Rangers. The long-time doormat Astros lead the division at 33-20, but look primed to fade. The Rangers have won their last four as Gallo joins Prince Fielder in the middle of the lineup. He has been told he will be sent to the minors upon Beltre’s return.
Fans at FreedomPop know that Gallo has impressed in his three years in the minors, hitting 22, 40, and 42 home runs, with a .268 batting average. He is in the vanguard of young power hitters to hit the majors this year, along with the Dodgers’ Joc Pederson and the Cubs’ Kris Bryant, who have also put some new dents in league stadiums.
His callup came a little late in the season to warrant talk of Rookie Of The Year honors, but the future looks a little brighter today for Rangers fans.

Skout suggests that anyone who doesn’t know the name Ronda Rousey, they should watch some of the latest movies out there, and look for the girl who’s kicking someone’s butt. Ronda Rousey. Ronda Rousey is a UFC fighter, and she’s one of the toughest females you’ll ever meet. Ronda has been in several movies recently, and her most recent movie is “Fast and Furious 7.” Ronda always plays a tough chick who can kick someone’s butt, even if that someone is a male. Ronda also played a part in the movie “The Expendables 3,” and she was able to show what she could do.
Ronda also has a part in the new movie “Entourage,” which is based on the show of the same name.

Everyone knows that Michelle Rodriguez, who plays a part in several of the Fast and Furious movies, she’s always been the tough chick.
It should be no surprise that Ronda recommended other UFC fighters to play parts in any possible upcoming movie of Fast and Furious, but since there are no definite plans yet, we’ll have to wait and see.

Jose Aldo is the UFC featherweight champion of the world, and he is well respected among the mixed martial arts community. Aldo hasn’t been defeated in years, and no one has even come close to taking away his title. Nonetheless, the UFC has been downplaying Aldo’s skills for the last several months. However, Jose Aldo recently spoke out against the UFC.
If you don’t know, the UFC recently partnered with Reebok, and now the clothing and sports company will be the sole sponsor of the UFC and its fighters. Sam Tabar mentions that this means that fighters in the UFC are not able to wear any other sponsorships while appearing inside of the Octagon. The top UFC fighters and champions will only receive $50,000 when wearing the Reebok logo on their fight trunks.
