Lyoto Machida will face Chris Weidman for the UFC middlweight title and Ronda Rousey will put her title on the line as well. It will be a fun show but it can get pretty pricey if you want to see the fights live on pay per view tonight. Luckily for all of the poor UFC fans out there there are some places to see the show online if you know where to look.


The main card will feature champion Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida for the UFC middleweight title, Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis for UFC women’s bantamweight title, Matt Mitrione vs. Stefan Struve, Uriah Hall vs. Thiago Santos, and the pay per view will star with Marcus Brimage vs. Russell Doane in the opening bout.

You could go to a bar around town such as Hooters or Buffalo Wild Wings if you can find a place to sit. They usually fill up pretty quickly for big pay per views such as this one. If all else fails you can catch the highlights on Youtube or other sites such as ESPN or FoxSports.

Be sure to turn your phone off and stay off of Facebook an Twitter. If there is a big upset or vicious knockout you know your friends will be texting you about what went down in Vegas tonight.

Blake Bortles goes third to Jaguars in 2014 NFL Draft

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

It was a wild four months of training, interviews and mock drafts for former UCF quarterback Blake Bortles, and it all culminated into a day he will not soon forget. Jacksonville got a QB and a new hot chick around town, Bortles’ girlfriend Lindsey Duke.

With his family present at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, the Oviedo native turned his dream into reality as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell read off the words that every football player works so hard to hear:

“With the third pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Blake Bortles.”

As Bortles heard his name called, UCF fans immediately started getting excited about driving the short distance up the road to watch a talent that took the Knights to extraordinary heights during his time in a Black and Gold uniform.

By being selected third, Bortles became the highest draft pick in UCF history, surpassing Daunte Culpepper who was drafted 11th overall by Minnesota in 1999. Bortles and Culpepper now stand as the Knights’ only two first-round picks and quarterbacks to be selected in the NFL Draft.

UCF has now produced at least one Knight in the NFL Draft in each of the last nine seasons. Entering this year’s draft, it is one of 32 schools with one or more players selected each year dating back to the 2006 draft.

Bortles is the 32nd UCF player to be tagged in the draft, 13 of which have been mentored by head coach George O’Leary who just completed his 10th year at the helm of the program. Of the previous 12 O’Leary-produced draft picks, Josh Sitton (won), Jah Reid (won) and Bruce Miller have reached the Super Bowl.

The Knights’ first draft picks came back in 1987 with Ted Wilson (10th round) and Elgin Davis (12th round).

Signing with UCF on Feb. 3, 2010, Bortles redshirted as a true freshman before being voted on to the 2011 Conference USA All-Freshman Team. Appearing in 10 games off the bench, he completed 68.2 percent of his passes, throwing six touchdowns in the process.

Taking over as UCF’s starter in 2012, he would be named to the All-C-USA Second Team by throwing for 3,059 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also ran for eight scores during the campaign, leading UCF to a 10-4 record, a C-USA East Division title and a victory over Ball State in the Beef `O’ Brady’s Bowl.

Bortles then found the national spotlight as a junior in 2013. Guiding the Black and Gold to its most memorable season since its inception in 1979, Bortles and UCF went 12-1 with the American Athletic Conference title and a win against Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

He was voted as the 2013 American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year and was a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award. Bortles completed the season with 3,581 passing yards and a 67.8 completion percentage, racking up 25 touchdowns. On the ground, he sported 272 yards and six scores.

Bortles finished his career with a 22-5 record as a starter.

Clowney goes #1 overall to Texans

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

University of South Carolina junior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was selected by the Houston Texans with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, held tonight at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Clowney, a 6-5, 266-pound defensive end from Rock Hill, S.C., becomes the 12th first-round draft pick in school history and the seventh since 2000. He is just the second Gamecock taken with the first pick in the draft, joining 1980 Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers, who was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the first pick in the 1981 draft.

In three seasons in the Garnet & Black, Clowney recorded 47.0 tackles for loss and 24.0 sacks, ranking second and third respectively in school history. A two-time first-team All-American, Clowney finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy balloting following the 2012 campaign. He was named the All-America Player of the Year, presented by AT&T, as selected by the fans on ESPN.com and was the Hendricks Award winner as the nation’s top defensive end. During his sophomore season, he set school single-season records for sacks (13.0) and tackles for loss (23.5) while earning University of South Carolina Male Athlete of the Year accolades.

With the pick Houston bolstered their already dominant defensive line that already was loaded with perennial All-Pro JJ Watt.

Rams take Greg Robinson with second pick in 2014 NFL Draft

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Greg Robinson came from humble beginnings in Louisiana. This Thursday night, he was one of the top players in the NFL Draft and in line for a contract befitting a potential star.

The now-former Auburn offensive lineman was the No. 2 player selected in the NFL Draft when the St. Louis Rams came calling his name at Radio City Music Hall.

He played just two years at Auburn, having been redshirted as a freshman. He never played his junior year, much less his senior season. But here he as a toast of New York.

He has repeatedly said he would take care of his family back home when he signs his NFL contract. He earned his way here as he helped Auburn’s explosive offense help the Tigers all the way to BCS title game.

Auburn says he led the nation with 25 touchdown-clearing blocks, and helped Tre Mason and Nick Marshall each burst through the 1,000-yard rushng barrier.

South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney was the No. 1 pick, going to Houston.

Robinson is expected to lead the Auburn charge in the draft. He’ll likely be followed by defensive end Dee Ford and tailback Tre Mason, then others.
