Anyone watching Kingdom?
Just started watching the show this morning. It's about an MMA school with Nick Jonas starring in it. Joe Stevenson and Cub Swanson are in it as well and looks like it may end up being a solid show.

UFC: Impostor chose Rory MacDonald's walkout music for years
Walkout music isn't huge business in MMA, but it is an associative identifier to certain fighters, lending it some level of importance. When I hear "Sandstorm", I think of Wanderlei Silva. When I hear "Bad reputation", I think of Ronda Rousey. A fighter's music serves another purpose in that it helps put them in the zone or amps them up for the impending violence they are about to engage in.

Dana White Wins Palms Casino Undisputed Blackjack Championship Belt
How did UFC President Dana White get so good at blackjack? Well, it probably helps that he can afford to lose each and every hand, so he likely plays without fear. Or maybe he's using the same strategy that got him kicked out of the casino back in 2012? Either way, this probably won't sit well with Don Frye. Speaking of bitter UFC veterans, I wonder if Dana will pull a Tim Sylvia and wear it during sex.
