    The story that will never die reared its ugly head again on Saturday, when Floyd Mayweather announced in England that he is coming out of retirement. This, of course, is massive news for boxing, given that Mayweather is the greatest boxer of his era and one of the best of all-time. And, being the showman he is, he played it for all it’s worth. “Everybody get your phone out,” Mayweather says. “Post this to the internet as soon as possible.”

    Over the weekend, MMA fighter Joe Harding learned a valuable lesson. While in a fight with Johan Segas, Harding got cocky and tried to show off his dance moves. Segas saw this as the perfect opportunity to kick the showboating Harding in the face. The kick to the face knocked him out immediately.

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 2/8/2017 | J Hines
    A shootout game that utilizes real guns with simunitions. Imagine a new sport where gun fighting slams into mixed martial arts. Fighters and opponents shoot at each other with real guns, and when all the ammo is gone, there can be some mano-mano in your face fighting. In the early years of simunitions development, the military and law enforcements were the only group to enjoy this form of training, until now. You can use your favorite version in Glocks or Sigs 9mm pistols to shoot it out against your friend. Just like paintball, simunitions comes in red and blue. Getting...

    “After the first fight I knew lots more people were getting attacked, so I ran out to try to get the police and the police…they even recognized me and were like ‘yeah we’re not really going in there.’ I don’t know if they were cowards or had an order to stand down but it was a disgrace to see a police force stand down like that,” said Shields.

    Professional MMA fighter and UFC Veteran, Jake Shields, was forced to rescue a civilian who was being severely beaten by “anti-fascist” rioters in Berkeley, California, on Wednesday, after police officers allegedly refused to intervene. Realizing that law enforcement officers were not going to help the man who was being cornered and violently attacked, Shields took the moment into his own hands, and fought off the mob of rioters while he helped the injured and bloodied man to safety. “The show got cancelled so I was kind of checking things out,” said Shields in an interview with Breitbart Tech. “Obviously it...

    It’s not official yet, but it looks like Kennedy and the editor of Deadspin may be headed to the octagon! Last week, U.S. Army Green Beret Tim Kennedy announced his decision to step away from competing professionally as a mixed martial artist for good. Now, a bizarre Twitter feud involving Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has raised the possibility of the 37-year-old middleweight heading back to the octagon for an encore fight. Against whom? Tim Marchman, the editor of sports website Deadspin. @timmarchman Unsurprising that not one Ted Cruz-supporting cuck/Twitter user is willing to face me in the UFC octagon. 9:32...
