may GSP

Just when we thought the Floyd “Money” Mayweather and MMA rumors were dead, Firas Zahabi decides to stir up the pot once more, this time involving his star pupil, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre. During a sit-down interview with Joe Rogan this week, Tristar Gym’s head coach Firas Zahabi once again proposed a boxing match up between Floyd Mayweather and Georges St-Pierre.

UFC’s Darren Till: Public Enemy No. 1

UFC employees held at gunpoint in Brazil

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported that an investigation is ongoing as security cameras are being reviewed. Those involved cancelled their stolen credit cards and passports. Some UFC employees definitely involved. Have not heard of any fighters…
