John Scott is one of the toughest fighters in the NHL, based on his incredible size (6-foot-8, 265 pounds, 120 Kilograms) and overwhelming reach. Despite all that, New York Islanders forward Justin Johnson dropped his gloves with Scott for a first-period fight in Sunday’s regular-season finale. After the Buffalo Sabres enforcer landed a few solid jabs, Johnson connected with a powerful left-handed punch that sent Scott to the ice. Scott laughed it off as he got up and skated to the penalty box. He was just as surprised as everyone else at what happened.

“So this crazy fight in front of my apartment kept me up until 2 last night. Luckily I got it on video from an excellent 4th floor view. Guys’ girlfriend steals a mop from a passing homeless man. The guy attacks with it and gets it taken away only to be used to beat the guys friend. Another guy gets thrown into a passing car. Also someone gets thrown through a plate glass window. This is only the 2nd craziest fight I’ve seen in front of the Crocodile Bar in Wicker Park.” – Mike Block
The first rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about Fight Club. But Bryan Storkel and Academy Award-winning director Daniel Junge are spreading the gospel about a fascinating new wave of Christianity in which pastors and followers are practicing faith by participating in MMA fights. Jesus never tapped out, will you?
Recently in Perth, a young Aboriginal gang that stole money from a busker has hit the headlines. The busker apparently tried to stop them but was attacked. Another man jumped in and tried to help him but he was set upon as well and had his wrist broken. I didn’t spot the dog. What kind of breed was it? It must have been pretty impressive if they kept shouting about it like that.
There’s nothing more satisfying that watching a guy lose a fight he started. Those big, fat, but not totally obese, somewhat athletic types are usually devastating in a fight. They are built like offensive lineman. They are really strong, but not too slow, and have a lot of weight behind them, so they can inflict a lot of damage. That is why there are weight classes in the UFC. For anyone wondering, apparently the man eventually caught his breath and moved on from the scene.
