Nate Diaz Accuses Cowboy Hat-Wearing Fighters Of Sucking Too Much UFC D--k 58
Exiled Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Nate Diaz doesn't call anyone by name, so I honestly have no idea who he's referring to. Anybody in the promotion like to wear cowboy hats? I guess one thing we can always count on, is that Diaz will have something to say whenever a couple of lightweights are headlining a UFC event. But what they do with UFC dicks is their business, not ours.

Van Roosmalen: "Rumor of GLORY/Bellator crossover"
Hard-hitting GLORY lightweight contender Robin van Roosmalen has been told he is likely the next in line for a title shot at 155lbs. He holds two wins over current champion Davit Kiria but doesn’t see that as any guarantee of another victory. In addition to the title shot news, Van Roosmalen is also excited about a rumor that GLORY and Bellator might do some crossover matches now that Scott Coker has taken over at Bellator.

How Miesha Tate saved Bryan Caraway's mother's life
The short version of the story goes like this: Bryan Caraway, looking to do something nice with the money he’s made as a UFC fighter, takes his parents and his girlfriend on a vacation to Mexico. Then his mother almost dies. Then his girlfriend, who is also a UFC fighter, steps in and saves her life. After that, they go shopping for souvenirs and fly home in time to catch the UFC Fan Expo. Everyone lives, as they say, happily ever after. The longer version is a bit more complicated. It begins in Cancun, in the Caribbean Sea, on a pleasant little snorkeling trip.
