The United States Women’s soccer team traveled to Rio to attempt to win Olympic Gold. Leading up to their defeat they played with confidence each game, starting from the preliminaries.

They started with a 2-0 victory over a talented New Zealand team; then beat France 1-0 to advance to the quarterfinal round of the Olympic Games.

Conor McGregor sets his sights on the lightweight division

A little under three years ago, I was sitting on my porch with my buddy Kevin. While watching UFC highlights on my laptop, He told me to look up “this dude Conor McGregor, he’s this crazy Irish dude who throws ridiculous kicks.” That crazy Irishman will be fighting for the lightweight title on March 5. McGregor’s unprecedented rise to the top of the UFC comes from his outlandish trash talk and his uncanny ability to back it up.

McGregor’s trash talk is legendary. The only other UFC fighters who are even on the same level are Chael Sonnen and Brock Lesnar. He utilizes that trash talk to propel himself into larger fights and draw larger crowds. He is his own perfect PR guy. You can see one of his best moments when he verbally attacks every UFC fighter at a press conference. But, trash talk is nothing unless you can back it up, and McGregor has fulfilled every one of his promises so far.

On Dec. 13, UFC superstar Conor McGregor catapulted his career to new heights with a crushing 13-second knockout over former long-reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Brash, charismatic, and outspoken, McGregor is now considered by many to be the face of mixed martial arts.

Anderson Silva, arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history, tested positive a second time for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) following his bout with Nick Diaz at UFC 183. The first test came before he defeated Diaz, but the second positive came soon after the contest.

After one of the premier fighters tested positive for PEDs, Hector Lombard, a top contender for the welterweight division, also tested positive for PEDs. The UFC brass had enough with these positive tests and held a press conference February 18th to discuss their changes to the drug testing policies.

Dissecting Seattle’s heartbreaking Super Bowl loss to New England

With Super Bowl XLIX in the books, the arm-chair quarterbacks have sat up, put down their beers and voiced their opinions. You can second guess just about every call or play made in this game, but none will be more popular then the now infamous pass play that lead to Seattle’s fourth quarter loss.

After a miraculous catch by Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, and a tough run to the one yard line by Marshawn Lynch, Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell called a pass play on the one yard line. The play was a slant route ran by wide receiver Ricardo Lockette underneath a “pick” route ran by wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.

Moments ago, from the U of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona, the New England Patriots won Super Bowl  XLIX with a come-from-behind victory over the Seattle Seahawks in another great finish to the NFL season.

You got the sense early that it was going to be a competitive game given the quality of both teams. New England got on the board first, when Brady connected with Brandon LaFell for an 11 yard touchdown.

Another championship weekend has come and gone with its share of fireworks. We witnessed a dominating performance by the New England Patriots and another incredible NFC championship game involving a come-from-behind victory from the Seattle Seahawks.

The NFC championship game began with a surprisingly dominant first half by the Green Bay Packers and no one would have guessed that the visiting teams would have had a 16-0 lead at halftime over the defending Super Bowl champions.

Championship weekend is finally upon us. Arguably, the best weekend of the NFL season, it has played host to “The catch”, “The drive,” and the infamous rant by Richard Sherman after he tipped the potential game winning pass to seal a Seattle victory in last year’s NFC championship.

Last night, inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones successfully defended his title inside of the Octagon with a five-round unanimous decision over Daniel Cormier in a fight that was better than many expected.

While the commanding victory helps Jones’ to keep his name thrust in the MMA headlines, there has definitely been some feedback to the way Jones has acted following his 20th professional victory. There definitely was no shortage of emotions coming from Jones, 27, and Cormier, 35, prior to their match, as it was apparent that some genuine disdain was in the air.

On September 27th, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson defeated Chris Cariaso by a Kimura in the second round. Johnson’s win begs the question ‘Who’s next?’

Since the UFC created the Flyweight division there has never been a champion outside of Mighty Mouse. In 2012, the UFC conducted a tournament to decide who would be the first Flyweight division champion. Johnson fought Ian McCall twice for the title since the first fight ended in a majority draw. Johnson won in a unanimous decision in the rematch to become the first Flyweight champion and has never looked back.

During a promotional event for UFC 178 on Aug. 5, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier engaged in a brawl that resulted in a broken stage and bad publicity for the UFC.

The fight began when Jones pushed his head into Cormier’s, and the former Olympic wrestler retaliated by pushing the UFC light heavyweight champion back. Jones then charged Cormier by throwing a hail of punches.

BJ Penn retires a legend

The referee called an end to the fight, but instead of cheers for the victor there was an eerie silence hanging over the crowd. No one wanted to be the first to applaud. Frankie Edgar did not celebrate by running around the cage or climbing to the top and pointing furiously into the audience. Instead he held his arms up for only a second and walked over to check on his defeated opponent. A legend of the sport had just fallen and the way he had fallen is what turned the crowd so solemn.

B.J. Penn returned to the UFC on July 6th for the rubber match against the first Lightweight to beat him in 8 years, Frankie Edgar. As the 10-1 underdog Penn was never expected to come close to winning, but no one expected the beat down that would ensue. Edgar handily beat Penn through two rounds and finished him in the third by raining elbows down on Penn’s head.
