What a week. I can’t remember a more active week in sports than what went down this week. Every major sport had a major headline, but none compared to the UFC and Conor McGregor. The Irishman has been referred to as a loudmouth by his peers, but to us regular folk he’s starting to resemble all the characteristics that made guys like Muhammed Ali fighting legends. If you didn’t know by now, McGregor silenced any remaining critics he had by putting Jose Aldo to sleep with a single punch.
Outside of the combat world the NBA is turning it up a notch with their big Christmas day slate of games coming up this Thursday. LeBron James and Kevin Durant reminded everyone that they are the two best players on the planet (even though they are currently living in Stephen Curry‘s world). And what countdown would be complete without the staple of the column, Mr. Odell Beckham Jr. The bright lights of Monday Night Football did not frighten ODB, but heightened his play.
