UFC 210: Cormier v Johnson 2e

Anthony Johnson shocked the MMA community by announcing his retirement in the prime of his lucrative career. The unusual fight saw him lose to UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in the second round. Rumours swirled regarding why his coaches didn’t enter the cage after the fight. According to corner audio from the event, Johnson’s cornermen pleaded with him when he elected to wrestle Cormier, rather than engage in striking. They begged him to disengage and keep his distance, and expressed anger when he didn’t.

Alexander Gustafsson has learned plenty of toughness from coach Andreas Michael. The UFC light-heavyweight contender proved it during a recent sparring session, when he blasted the longtime coach with an accidental spinning kick to the face. Catching him with the bottom of the foot instead of the heel was definitely a bit of luck. I’m sure that sucked, but it could have been worse for sure. Gus looks so worried after the shot, he thought he needed a new coach.

To understand the power of Paige Spiranac’s beauty, you need to take a trip with her to Scottsdale Top Golf on a bustling Saturday evening. Dressed in skin-tight jeans, a snug white top and high heels. Men nudge each other and stare, turning the ogling into a communal event. One dude, about to take a swig of beer, is frozen by the sight of Spiranac, his glass a couple of inches from his lips. Women inspect her from head to toe. In a culture that worships beauty, Spiranac has hit the genetic lottery. God bless her.

Nascar is one of America’s great creations. Sure, auto racing might have its origins in Europe, but they took a sport full of winding tracks and funny looking cars and made it better with Chevy Impalas and hundreds of left turns. And then perfected it with beer. Check it out.

In this How-To episode, Kolohe talks us through what’s becoming one of surfing’s most preferred ways to fly: the alley oop. It’s functional, it can clear sections and — when timed correctly in the right wind — can push you higher than you’ve ever gone above the lip.

“Either u get blown out and u feel so rad and proud and stoked, or u get an elevator drop to the reef and bruise your tailbone and crack a vertebrae, such a fine line that defines your future when you take a wave at pipe! I got absolutely dominated last week.” Back injuries suck for surfers, as the torquing motions are vital to surfing. Recovery time for a cracked vertebrae can be anywhere from a few weeks to a few months depending on the severity. Heal up fast brother.

This wild sport is called Fierljeppen (there are several spelling variations) and it involves a pole, 8-13 metres long, with a flat plate at the bottom. Jumpers sprint to the pole, grab it, climb to the top while trying to control its movement, and try to land on the bed of sand across the water. If they don’t think they’ll make it, they bail into the water.
