UFC: This past weekend Leon Edwards fought and it was his first fight in almost two years. He was supposed to fight Khamzat Chimaev but Chimaev pulled out because he is having trouble coming back from covid-19. So Edwards fought Belal Muhammad in the welterweight division. This was a strange fight because during the night Edwards accidentally poked Muhammad in the eye and he couldn’t continue fighting. So in the end the fight was ruled a no contest.
NFL: During this past week one of the greatest quarterbacks retired from the NFL and that player is Drew Brees. He brought New Orleans a super bowl 2010 and won super bowl mvp and is currently leading all quarterbacks in NFL history with the most passing yards in the regular season. On Monday NFL free agency started so any free agent can sign with a new team or re-sign with the team they played with last year. Players that re-signed with teams they played with last year are Cam Newton and the Patriots, Aaron Jones and the packers, Shaq Barrett and the Bucs, Leonard Floyd and the Rams, Jameis Winston and the Saints, Rob Gronkowski and the Bucs and finally Trent Williams and the 49ers. While not all players re-signed with their teams a lot of players signed with new teams. The Patriots signed a lot of good players during free agency which isn’t like them at all. They signed tight end Jonnu smith, defensive end Matthew Jodon, defensive back Jalen Mills, wide receiver Nelson Agholor and tight end Hunter Henry. While many other players signed with other teams which include safety John Johnson and the Browns, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue and the Raiders, wide receiver Corey Davis and the Jets, defensive end Bud Dupree and the Titans, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Washington football team, cornerback Shaquill Griffin and the Jags and quarterback Andy Dalton and the Bears and many more. These signings are the players that will have the biggest impact in their new teams but there are so many players that signed with new teams during this offseason.
NBA: Throughout this week there have been a lot of injuries which include Rockets guard Eric Gordon with a groin strain that will rule him out for 4 to 6 weeks. Not only that but 76ers center Joel Embiid will miss 2 to 3 weeks with a bone bruise. Losing Embiid will be a huge loss since he’s having an MVP season and is the best player on that team. But on a positive note Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum is finally returning to the starting lineup from a fractured foot.
