Finger injury ahead of fight

McGregor reveals he got a tooth embedded in his finger during training for his fight with Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

I was sparring a 90kg fighter, Ion Pascu, they call him the bomber. Like me, he sometimes spars with no gumshield…I smacked him with a clean shot, and his tooth embedded into my knuckle. Welcome to the fight game, the real fight game. You’ve got to get in and do it, it is what it is.

We are having lunch on the jet on our way to Ibiza, and he is still after the watch too. My young son is like his father. A ruthless animal.

Kavanagh accepts Coach of Year award, falls off hoverboard

Makes Statement

Kavanagh thanks The MMA Hour and Helwani for awarding him the Coach of the Year in a Twitter video that goes awry at the end, as he falls off a Hoverboard.

Thank you so much for this great honour. I know the competition was tough after such a big year in MMA. I want you to know that winning these awards hasn’t changed anything for us — we’re still just a small humble team from Ireland.

Listed on injury suspension list

McGregor is listed on the Nevada State Athletic Commissions injury suspension list with a “foot/ankle fracture” and must be cleared by an orthopedic doctor in order to fight again before Feb. 17, 2017, which seems likely. He will serve a minimum suspension of two months with the earliest he can return being Oct. 20, even if cleared by a doctor. Diaz has been given an injury suspension of one month for a severe cut above his left eye. Diaz cannot take contact until Sept. 11 nor fight until Sept. 20, though he won’t fight before then.

Jason Priestley Hospitalized

Priestley is taken to hospital following a horse riding accident. After being discharged, Priestley updated his worried fans

Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words… It’s true, I did get thrown off a horse on set… I got my bell rung pretty good… Because I have a history of concussions, they took me to see a neurologist for an assessment. He advised I take a few days off as I had suffered a concussion… But I am definitely on the mend and looking forward to getting back to work with all the wonderful people on The Code.

Hit by Segway

Bolt is run over by a Segway operated by a cameraman, after winning a historic fourth 200-meter victory in a row. As he jogs near the raised camera track, a photographer, who ddoesn’t see Bolt, ran into the track, and then into Bolt, sending both tumbling to the ground. Bolt shows the media a cut on his leg afterward but has no worries that he’d be affected by the injury. When he sees the video for the first time:

 Oh, took me out like! Bro!

Destroyed in Philadelphia

hitchbot murderedAfter two weeks on the road, hitchBOT is found at the side of the road in Philadelphia dismembered and decapitated.

Oh dear, my body was damaged, but I live on back home and with all my friends. I guess sometimes bad things happen to good robots! My trip must come to an end for now, but my love for humans will never fade. Thank you to all my friends.

The makers say:

For now we will focus on the question “what can be learned from this?” and explore future adventures for robots and humans. We have no interest in pressing charges or finding the people who vandalized hitchBOT; we wish to remember the good times, and we encourage hitchBOT’s friends and fans to do the same.

British YouTuber jumps into Thames

A British YouTuber nearly drowns after jumping into the river Thames to celebrate gaining 25,000 followers on his channel.

It originally was a dare from one of my subscribers, and I attempted it as I like doing crazy shit. This was later very regretted by me and I realized it was the stupidest idea ever. Thanks for watching.
