UFC: This past weekend Jairzinho Rozenstruik fought Ciryl Gane in a heavyweight fight. Rozenstruik was ranked number 4 and Gane was ranked 7 in the heavyweight rankings. Gane ended up dominating him in this fight and has yet to lose a fight with an 8-0 record. After this fight Gane was ranked fourth in the heavyweight division. Gane is now on a five fight win streak which is the longest fight streak in the heavyweight division.
NFL: This past week a really big free agent signed with the Arizona Cardinals, well I’m talking about JJ Watt. The Cardinals signed him to a 2-year 31 million dollar contract. This really surprised everyone because people didn’t think that he would want to play with the Cardinals since he said he wanted to play in the midwest where he is from. People thought he would sign with the Packers, Browns or even the Titans. JJ Watt now teaming up with his former teammate that he was teammates with on the Texans in DeAndre Hopkins. It was reported this past week that if the Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson were to request a trade he would only accept a trade to the Bears, Cowboys, Raiders or the Saints.
NBA: The Atlanta Hawks decided to fire their head coach Lloyd Pierce since they have started the season 15-20 and it was only his third season being the head coach. He was replaced by the former Iniana Pacers head coach in Nate McMillian on an interim basis. Last week I told you how Kevin Durant made the all star team but now he won’t be playing in it this week. He is gonna miss it with a hamstring injury that he has been dealing with for a couple of weeks now. Since he was a starter the NBA named Jayson Tatum the starter to replace Kevin Durant and they named Domantas Sabonis as the replacement for Tatum on the reserves.
MLB: Spring training started on Sunday and if you don’t know what spring training is it is basically preseason for the MLB season. So baseball is right around the corner a lot sooner than you think.
Was super surprised with the JJ Watt decision. Though there was no way he wasn’t going to the Packers as a Wisconsin guy. I wonder what happened with that. Joining a very young quarterback as well. I am just glad to see JJ and Hopkins playing together again and not for the Texans. Hope the best for Watson poor guy.
