Magnus Bordewick, by way of Oslo, Norway, is going to kill the street scene if he continues to drop parts like this.
Sportswriters love to describe Julian Edelman as scrappy. What they mean is he’s tough and bearded—all of which are true. Hard worker, determined and persistent are more words that describe former Kent State quarterback. When he was drafted in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, many critics thought he was too small to succeed in the NFL—but he proved them wrong.
Lightweight champion Conor McGregor claimed he was leaving the mixed martial arts world to spend the next 10 months raising a young Irish suckling. I had no idea he was talking about a horse. “Notorious” became the 13th jockey to enter the Pegasus World Cup Invitational. Alongside celebrity trainer Jon Lovitz, “Notorious” will attempt to win the largest purse in the history horse racing.

A truly astonishing goal from Olivier Giroud set Arsenal on their way to a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. The Frenchman scored for the second successive game, and it was a thing of beauty, beginning with a Lucas Perez tackle and finished by the striker with an audacious scorpion kick that crashed off the underside of the bar and in.
UFC 207 was punctuated with the arrival of 25-year old Cody Garbrandt, who schooled Dominick Cruz for five rounds in the co-main event to win the bantamweight title. Though it was the first loss that Cruz has suffered in nearly 10 years, the fight was so one-sided that a rematch wasn’t a given. So who will be Garbrandt’s first title defence? Maybe there won’t be one straight away. Garbrandt is thinking bigger. As in, bigger money, bigger rewards, bigger weight classes. Jose Aldo.
Matt Serra, Din Thomas and UFC President Dana White pack a summer’s worth of fun into a trip to White’s vacation home in Maine, with go-karts, demolition derby, drag racing, lobster rolls, a hot dog eating contest and more. After all that, the guys check out a fight card that surprises them with its entertaining bouts and promising athletes.
2016 was the year in which UFC titles became more insignificant than ever before as fighters discovered that chasing big-money fights was more beneficial than mounting a championship belt above their mantelpiece. Arguably the biggest bout of 2016 was the welterweight rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. So it comes as no surprise that other fighters are learning the value of trying to set up fights that fans will pay to watch.

Already in Las Vegas, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes celebrates with laughter and laundry.

LeBron James is an executive producer of NBC’s new game show The Wall, and the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar gave a sneak preview Friday on Instagram of one family that won $1.3 million. James delivered the prize himself, along with business manager and friend Maverick Carter. The family went nuts when it saw the King—even more so when it saw what he brought.
Two Irish mates having a late-night mock MMA fight on a Dublin street had a real-life brush with a fighting champ, when up drove none other than their hero, UFC star Conor McGregor. The men, one wearing a festive Christmas jumper, were pretending to wrestle and kick each other late on Friday night, with a few bystanders joining in.
