Round Six: UFC 163

I’m not going to lie fellow fight fans, I initially wasn’t all too thrilled with this card. When the main event was initially announced as Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis for the Featherweight Championship, I was a little perplexed as to why Pettis, who was on the cusp of finally getting his UFC Lightweight title shot, was going to drop down to Featherweight and take on that the division king Aldo. But there was no doubt in my mind that a fight between these two would have been fireworks. Unfortunately Pettis had to pull out due to a knee injury, but in the end he’s getting a crack against Lightweight champion Ben Henderson at UFC 164. So that left Jose Aldo without an opponent. That is until the returning fan favorite “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung was given the match. Known for his highly entertaining balls-to-the-wall fighting style and ability to absorb ungodly amounts of punishment, the show was still going to go on, albeit with less fanfare as it may have once had. But before we get to the title fight, let’s take a quick look at some other fights that went down that night.

Sneak a Peek at Some New Grand Theft Auto V Screens

The day is almost near us, the day where countless gamers will disappear into the void of their rooms and lose themselves in the newest offering from Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto V. That day is September 17, 2013, 49 days away. A.k.a., too f’ing long for me to possibly contain myself. But until that wondrous day comes about, Rockstar has released a dozen new screens from the game to tease us with. You can make your way over to Rockstar’s post and see the screens there, or you can just stay here, scroll down, and see them from the comfort of your computer/phone/tablet/fancy WiFi enabled toaster with that spiffy LED screen. And if you haven’t already done so, check out Luis‘ previous post and watch the sweet sweet gameplay trailer.

Round Six: Invicta FC 6

Holy F’ing S! Ladies and gentlemen, if you’ve never watched an Invicta FC event, you are missing out. For its sixth event, Invicta brought a stacked card from top to bottom, main evented by the rematch between Cris “Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen. The pair had squared off before on January 30, 2010 for the Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Championship, where Cyborg successfully defended her title by TKOing Coenen at 3:40 of the third round. This time the two women went at it again, but for Invicta’s inaugural Featherweight Championship.

Used games won’t be blocked on the PlayStation 4
