UFC: This past weekend Robert Whittaker whos ranked as the number one contender in the middleweight division, was suppose to fight Paulo Costa. But costa pulled out because of severe flu symptoms, so Whittaker fought Kelvin Gastelum. Whittaker completely dominated this fight and won this fight. Whittaker should be fighting for the title for his next fight since he has won three in a row.
NFL: This past week a lot of players signed with new teams and those players include Marquise Goodwin signing with the Bears, Aldon Smith signing with the Seahawks and Cordarrelle Patterson signing with the Falcons. Quarterback Alex Smith retired from the NFL who recovered from a brutal and gruesome leg injury. During his playing career he played for the 49er, Chiefs and the Washington Football Team (Redskins). Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin signed a three year contract extension. Tomlin was due a new contract since he is one of the better head coaches in the NFL.
NBA: A couple weeks age LaMarcus Aldridge signed with the Nets but he just announced that he is retiring from the NBA because of health concerns citing from an irregular heartbeat. Zach LaVine will be out two weeks due to leagues health and safety protocols. Donovan Mitchell suffered a lower ankle sprain and will be out for a couple weeks. Jabari Parker recently signed with the Boston Celtics. LaMelo Ball was recently cleared to return from his wrist injury. Anthony Davis is returning to the Lakers starting lineup tomorrow (the 22nd).
That sucked that Costa pulled out. Would have made for a great fight. Costa excuse as “drinking a bottle of wine” versus Israel kind of made me loose respect for him. The events this week were insane! Usman is legit maybe the best P4P fighter right now.
