Conor McGregor Makes History on a Historic Night

The UFC has caught on fire these past few years, essentially making MMA the new boxing. There has been a huge drive to the sport as it has attracted talent from all over the world, as well as celebrity. Yet, for all of it’s fame and popularity it had not tapped into the center of the sport’s world (sorry L.A.), New York, until this weekend. After being banned in the state of New York for the past decade, UFC 205 was approved and ready to go for the Empire State. It featured a phenomenal card that included the likes of Tyron Woodley, Chris Weidman, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Meisha Tate, and of course the Fighting Irish himself, Conor McGregor. He became the first fighter to hold two different belts at the same time in the history of the UFC.

Conor isn’t a quiet man. He came into New York with a Rolls Royce that had his face on it. He spent all week celebrating some great times in NY history (whether wearing Joe Frazier’s red turtleneck and white mink to Biggie’s Coogie sweater), and verbally assaulting all those that challenged his greatness. Never has this sport at least seen such a colorful character, and even beyond Money Mayweather, never has fighting seen one since Ali. A man who will take all challengers, New York turned out to be the perfect stage for Conor. As exciting as most of this card was, we all waited for Eddie Alvarez to hold his own versus Conor. After Woodley got that bizarre draw (a majority, letting him hold on to his belt), Yoel Romero shocking Weidman, and Meisha Tate losing and subsquently retiring, we got the fight of the night.

Conor himself is a show, fighting fiercely with his fists as does his mouth. After him and Eddie almost sparred at the press conference Conor promised he would finish him up in one round or be nice and keep him into the second. To be fair, Conor kept his word. After dispatching barrage after barrage, Eddie was promptly TKO’d in the second round, quieting much of the hate attributed to Conor and ending any talk of him losing his touch. As every post fight interview with Joe Rogan is amazing, Conor didn’t disappoint. He made sure to let everyone know that “I want to apologize..to absolutely nobody”, before being given his second belt. After announcing he was having a child with his long time girlfriend, he demanded a stake in the UFC. Can you blame him? We have not had a draw in MMA ever, even if you count George St. Pierre and Brock Lesnar. This man is not only on fire, but one hell of a fighter. The UFC needed this and so did fighting. The sport of fighting has become a technical sport that has lost it’s showmanship in so many ways, especially now that Floyd is wrapping up his career. People want the story and the struggle to really appreciate the beatdowns, and what a story this is.

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  • Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

  • Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
