UFC: This past week UFC 261 took place and it was an unbelievable fight card. In the light heavyweight division Anthony Smith fought Jimmy Crute. This was a really weird fight Smith did a really good job with his jab but later on in the first round Smith kicked Crute near his knee. But he fell right away and looked like he hit a nerve and the doctor stopped the fight and Anthony Smith won. In the middleweight division Uriah Hall fought Chris Weidman and this was a quick and scary one. Weidman kicked Hall and right away Weidman’s ankle completely snapped, this was such a gruesome injury. Next fight was in the women’s flyweight division between Valentina Shevchenko and Jessica Andrade and was for the flyweight championship. Shevchenko completely dominated this fight and eventually won this fight via TKO and retained her belt. The next fight is in the women’s strawweight division for the championship between Weili Zhang and Rose Namajunas. This was a quick fight Thus Rose landed a head kick and completely knocked out Zhang. Thus Rose would reclaim her strawweight belt after losing in two years ago. In the main event Kamaru Usman fought Jorge Masvidal for the welterweight championship. Usman once again dominated this fight and KO’d Masvidal in the second round with a vicious right hand and retained his belt. This would be the first time in Masvidal’s career where he was KO’d.
NFL: This past week the Ravens traded there starting left tackle Orlando Brown to the Chiefs for the 31st pick in the draft. The Bucs were able to resign Antonio Brown and Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee announced his retirement. The Falcons are listening to offers on all pro receiver in Julio Jones.

NBA: Kentucky guard Terrance Clarke who declared for the NBA draft was in a car accident and sadly passed away. De’Aaron Fox is expected to miss 10-14 days because of the league’s health and safety protocols. John Wall will be out for the year with a hamstring injury aka rockets tanking. Kevin Durant returned to the lineup after dealing with a left leg contusion.
The UFC event was crazy good! That broken leg was a little to much for me that was disgusting. The Usman fight was crazy as well. Cant believe he knocked out Jorge, whose jaw has seemed to be indestructible for some time.
