NOW gives Sulkowicz its Woman of Courage Award “for having demonstrated personal bravery in challenging entrenched power and in carrying out action that has the potential to benefit women in general.” Sulkowicz: Camille Paglia has publicly called my artwork a “masochistic exercise” in which I neither “evolve” nor “move-on.” She speaks as if she, a white […]

The ad teases another commercial to be released on June 30, where two teams of three fighters apiece challenge for some kind of title. Velasquez, Johnson, and Dodson also appear, hitting a variety of inanimate objects.
Danis talks about his training with McGregor in Dublin. I look up to Conor because he said he was going to do something and he went off and did it. He didn’t take any shortcuts, he worked his ass off. He talks the talk and walks the walk. He’s a good guy to learn from and […]
Kavanagh says McGregor is better prepared to fight Diaz than previously, with training taking place every lunchtime in his gym SBG Concorde before specialist cardio training in the evening. Specialist fighters from Finland, New York and Britain had been brought in to prepare McGregor to counter Diaz’s fighting style. Nothing will feel new on the night. He will have […]
Marquez comes second in the Dutch GP at Assen, behind Jack Miller. After restarting the race in fifth place he took third place behind Miller, Valentino Rossi and race leader Dovizioso, until Rossi and Dovizioso crash out. This second place today is like a victory, these points will be important in the championship.
Rossi crashes out from his lead in the second lap of the restarted Dutch GP. Despite trying to restart the bike, he cannot re-enter the race. I was a dunce, maybe even something worse … but I think that word will do. It’s a real pity. I had a good chance of bringing home some heavy […]
The DutchGP is stopped on Lap 15 of 26, due to rainy conditions. Marquez is in fifth place, behind Scott Redding, Valentino Rossi, Danilo Petrucci and race leader, Andrea Dovizioso. The race will be restarted if conditions improve.
The Dutch GP is stopped on Lap 15 of 26, due to rainy conditions. Rossi is in third place, behind Andrea Dovizioso in first place, and Danilo Petrucci in second. Scott Redding is in fourth place. Starting from second place on the grid, Rossi was behind Yonny Hernandez and Dovizioso until the Columbian crashed out in Lap […]
Kavanagh says he expects McGregor to ask for an equity stake in UFC if it is sold. Kavanagh said “it is true” that the UFC was for sale, but he does not know the details. Conor will have thought of this and I am sure, when he is sitting down with his new overlords, he will have that conversation…What […]
Kavanagh says that the rumoured $100 million fight between McGregor and Mayweather would happen, but only if revenues were split evenly between both men. There was talk that Conor would get $7 million and Floyd would get the rest of it. It will be an even share or Conor will not do it . . . […]
At Win or Learn – An Evening with John Kavanagh, McGregor talks about UFC 196 and 202. To see the way that last fight went, I can’t live with it…The last fight, mid-round, I wasn’t listening, I wasn’t paying attention. That was one of the errors I made…I was a little bit heavy around the mid-section, […]
Rossi takes second place on the grid in Assen, trailing Dovizioso by half a second. Scott Redding is third. I stopped at the pit box four minutes before the end of the session, because my rear tyre was already getting too hot, because there were some places of the track that were starting to dry. For […]
Marquez places third in Friday Free Practice at Assen, for the Netherlands GP. The 2014 chassis is the one that last year I came back to in this race and still I’m using this one. It gives me a lot of confidence with the front tyre. Confidence and warning, which is important. For example, when I tried […]
Aldo says he will follow McGregor to the lightweight division. Not only would I like it, we are going after it. We need to make it happen. The first fight wasn’t as expected. Hopefully, we will win that belt – that needs to be my goal now – but after I reclaim it, I think about […]
Jeffries says that McGregor-Mayweather will happen. I think it’s a possibility it could happen. People are saying it’s a circus and all that but I think it could happen. And why not? The biggest pay-per-view star of all time in boxing against the biggest pay-per-view star of all time in MMA. I would like to see it. With it […]
Alvarez says that McGregor wasn’t beaten by Diaz. Diaz didn’t beat him that night. Conor beat himself, his overconfidence. Moving up in weight with that overconfidence, that’s what made him lose. But if he takes things seriously, I think it will be a different fight.
In a multiplayer deal, the Bulls trade point guard Rose, to the Knicks. Bulls chairman Reinsdorf: Knowing Derrick as I do makes this trade a hard one. Everyone knows him as the local kid who became MVP for his hometown team, but not everyone got to know him like I did. While he is a […]
Rossi comes second in Friday’s second Free Practice session in Assen, Netherlands, behind Andrea Iannone, and in front of Marc Marquez. Rossi tested two versions of his M1 bike. In the earlier practice session he had come seventh. It was a good day and I’m quite satisfied. This morning I had a small problem but […]

In an interview with TMZ, Dos Anjos says McGregor cannot beat Diaz. It’s hard to advise him, because Nate Diaz was on vacation when he got a call to fight him. And on less than 10 days’ notice he still beat him — now he’s got a full fight camp. [Conor can win] if he can […]
Red Bull releases a video of Marquez at a photoshoot in Ibiza.
Rossi is spotted at Misano wearing an Arai Ram 4, camouflaged as an AGV one, with stickers on top, based on the design he used last year. Rossi has always been associated with AGV. The Japanese manufacturer spread the photos through social media.
Rossi says he feels more competitive than in 2015. The important thing is to be strong and fast on Sunday afternoon at 2pm. This is what I’ve been thinking all my career. Last year I fought for the championship to the last race but sometimes in the race I wasn’t fast like Lorenzo and Marquez. This year it […]

Bisping says he would “snap” Conor McGregor’s neck if he ever moved up to 185 pounds. Listen, a long time ago I had a bird that annoyed me and the bird had to go. The bird’s neck was snapped. I would also snap Conor McGregor’s neck in a similar fashion. Conor is about as high as this […]
White praises McGregor’s willingness to fight any opponent. Conor McGregor doesn’t give a shit. I’ve been doing this for 16 years – I know who says yes, who says no, and Conor says no to nothing…People say I kiss his ass and do all this other stuff for him, but I f-cking respect the guy, who when […]
According to an excerpt from Kavanagh’s upcoming autobiography, the lack of cutting weight caused a lack of focus in McGregor’s team leading up to UFC 196. Not having to cut weight for the fight against Diaz was supposedly helpful, but in hindsight it was undoubtedly a hindrance. Cutting weight may not be much fun, but it does serve as […]
In an interview with Irish Independent, McGregor’s father, Tony, says that Conor had bought the entire family BMWs. Conor has a very generous nature, which he gets from his mother, and we realise that we’re very lucky. He came home from an American trip last year, and I saw this fleet of cars coming around […]
Fancy MMA releases video of McGregor grappling with Danis.
After Conlan posts an image of boxing boots that McGregor has sent him, McGregor tweets his support. Thanks to @TheNotoriousMMA and @Reebok for sorting me out with these new boots! Can't wait to wear them in Rio #GOLD pic.twitter.com/NPHqD52k8A — Michael Conlan (@mickconlan11) June 17, 2016 Looking good Michael!! That gold medal is yours my […]
Cerrone says he is tired of McGregor’s posturing. Give me Conor McGregor. I’ll fight that p***y. Other than that, I don’t care. Tell that dude to slow his f-king roll. You can’t be just calling out 170-pounders. So, whatever. Enough of him.
Despite trading insults with McGregor in the past, Cerrone says that he would rather fight Diaz. I’d rather fighter Diaz over Conor. Everyone talks about that as the money fight, but people don’t understand. They’re like, ‘If you get that fight, that’s the money fight.’ [But] I’m under contract. I get paid the same whether I fight […]
Monster releases the third in their Valentino Rossi: The Doctor series. The episode concentrates on “The Ranch,” Rossi’s dirt-track training facility, which is just outside his hometown of Tavullia, Italy. The video includes cameos from Rossi’s friends, Colin Edwards II and Loris Capirossi, who explain what has made The Ranch special to motorbike racing fans. My father Graziano bought this land. The […]
Edgar says that when he beats Aldo in UFC 200, he wants to fight McGregor in UFC 205, on November 12 at Madison Square Garden. McGregor would have to fight at 145 pounds. You can’t write something better than that. Why wouldn’t Conor want to fight at MSG? There’s definitely a big Irish contingency in New York […]
Cormier says UFC 200 will be a bigger draw than UFC 202 because Lesnar is a bigger star than McGregror. I think UFC 200 will undoubtedly be the most successful pay-per-view in UFC history. You have nine former or current UFC champions on the card. You have one of the fights just to start, the first […]
Wallace, a Newry middleweight who has claimed six all-Ireland titles, says that he had just wrapped up a sparring session with McGregor at the SBG gym in Dublin. I think he is a very skilful operator, his boxing skills is of very high level. He definitely has what it takes to be a boxer. I’m privileged to […]
Edgar says McGregor is ‘smart’ not to fight at 145. At 145 he has everything to lose. At 170, he has nothing to lose. I mean, even though Nate is a 155-pound guy, and he decided not to cut weight so they could go around and market the fact that he’s going up two weight […]
Danis posts Instagram images of him training with McGregor at the SBG Ireland gym in Dublin. We’ve been in contact for a while and the time was just right. He’s one of my idols and you don’t pass up opportunities like this. He has one of the greatest minds and skillsets ever in the sport. View […]

Rosis says he is hoping to meet Verstappen at the Netherlands GP in Assen. I always follow Formula One. Max Verstappen is a driver who I have followed since his time in go-karts, where he won several titles and showed how strong he was right away. It’s amazing what he has done and he is still very young. […]
Following the death of Luis Salom, Rossi says that MotoGP will never be safe. If I thought a little bit I could give to you a minimum of 10 corners, Motegi, Turn 4, for example. It’s something where every year we go and we say ‘we need more run-off.’ You check the situation. You cannot extend the […]
During a talk with MMA Underground, Kavanagh says he thinks McGregor-Mayweather will happen. It puts it on hold. I think that contest will happen eventually but it’s on hold for now. I’d be very surprised if it doesn’t at some stage. I think it’s a bigger fight; I think there’s a lot of intrigue about it. I […]
Rogan says that the UFC made the right decision in rematching McGregor with Diaz. The emperor has been stripped down, okay? So now, he’s been exposed, someone has beaten him. So here’s the thing, what do you now? Do you want to make money? Because if you want to make money, you make the biggest […]
Ali’s funeral is held in Louisville, Kentucky. Muslim, Christian, Jewish and other speakers speak of his fight for civil rights, while a message from President Barack Obama praises his originality. His wife Lonnie: If Muhammad didn’t like the rules, he rewrote them. His religion, his beliefs, his name were his to fashion, no matter what the cost. […]
