UFC 270: Francis Ngannou or Ciryl Gane?

It’s been a tough period for the sports world.

We saw the passings of Muhammad Ali, Gordie Howe and Kimbo Slice. Then, there was the Orlando incident.


My thoughts are with everyone affected. Let’s move forward and excel.

I am pleased to report photographer Esther Lin’s UFC credentials have been restored. The company reversed its decision to revoke Lin and the team ‘s credentials after an outcry from the combat sports community.

Well done, but there are other journalists like Loretta Hunt who are still blackballed from attending and covering UFC events.

What happens to them?

Wombat Sports has put together an interesting documentary on WMMA. It’s called Female Fighting: The Time is Now and it features several notable WMMA figures sharing their stories. Check it out.

Nicely done.
