You have never seen a brutal KO executed this slick before! WOW!

Of all the heavy leather swung, a 'throw' gets the KO.

Fight Time Promotions, a Florida-based mixed martial arts promotion brings us this knockout via ‘throw’ between Luis Raul Alvarez and Martin Georges. I’m not going to lie… When I viewed it the first time, I had no idea who was going to win the shootout, but I knew someone was going to sleep. However, it definitely didn’t end the way I thought it would.

With all of the punches and kicks that were thrown in the wild exchange, a shoulder toss would be what ended the fight. It didn’t even look like a shoulder toss as much as it looked like a failed arm-drag takedown. Regardless of what it was called, the fact remains the same. Georges hit the canvas hard with his face and the canvas won.

Floyd Mayweather, officially out of retirement, targets a date for Conor McGregor fight

Floyd Mayweather announces he's officially out of retirement, targets a date for Conor McGregor fight

When talk of a Floyd Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao fight first began in the world of boxing, it took years before it came to fruition. Not only that, but given that Manny wasn’t a trash talker, talk of them fighting each other only came up when one or the other had a bout of their own.

The Floyd Mayweather – Conor McGregor saga is a whole different beast entirely. With both men being as vocal as they are, and social media reaching a point that wasn’t yet realized during the years of talking about Mayweather – Pacquiao, it seems as though this fight is on another level in terms of coverage.

It was just yesterday that we reported on Mayweather’s latest rant towards Conor, and here we are less than 24 hours later, and Floyd is at it again.

But this time, he offered up something a bit more substantial than just some more run of the mill trash talk. Courtesy of FightHype:

“When I faced Arturo Gatti, I went to his turf. He was the A side, I was the B side. I beat him. I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain. When I faced Oscar De La Hoya, he was the A side, I was the B side. I didn’t cry, I didn’t complain. I beat him and I became the A side. For Conor McGregor, I’m coming out of retirement, just to fight Conor McGregor.”

Clearly, with so much talk of a fight, Mayweather ending his retirement was a given. This, however, is the first time we’ve heard him actually say those words.

There was another first in this interview as well. The mention of a date:

“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June. You’re the B side, I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight. You blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.”

Check out the video below to hear Floyd utter the words, “Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor,” and so much more:

Michael Bisping does not hold back when asked about GSP

Michael Bisping does not hold back when asked about GSP

We reported yesterday that former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has been given an opponent in his return to the company. GSP will have the chance to become a two-weight world champion when he faces UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping later this year at a date to be determined.

While GSP has always been known to be a more reserved and humble fighter, the same can’t be said for Bisping. He’s loud, he’s brash, and he doesn’t hold back when asked his opinion.

So, of course, the champ would have plenty to say when asked about his bout with Georges.

TMZ caught up with Bisping to get his thoughts on the match. When asked if he thought it was fair that GSP was getting an immediate title match, Bisping was rather complimentary:

“GSP was one of the greatest fighters that this world has ever produced. He’s one of the greatest fighters in the UFC ever. So the guy’s coming back, listen he should fight for the title. He stepped away as a dominant champion.”

When asked about how he thinks the fight would go, the champ was far less complimentary:

“Listen, like every fight, I’m feeling very confident. Georges St. Pierre is crazy. He thinks he’s gonna come back after three years and beat me? Are you crazy? Anderson Silva couldn’t beat me. Dan Henderson couldn’t beat me. Pound for pound best in the world Luke Rockhold got knocked out in the first round. I don’t know what GSP has been sniffing but he’s out of his God damn mind.”

The champ never fails to come through with some great quotes.

We will have more details on the fight itself as they are made available. With a press conference set for this Friday with both Georges St. Pierre and Michael Bisping, we are sure to learn some more. But for now, enjoy the rest of the interview:

Alistair Overeem: “The Reem”, Season 4 – Episode 2

Alistair Overeem: "The Reem", Season 4 - Episode 2

This weekend at UFC 209 we will be treated to a big heavyweight matchup with contenders that are smack-dab in the middle of the rankings. Alistair Overeem will be taking on Mark Hunt to open the main card, and the fight promises to set an explosive tone for the rest of the night.

The two goliaths actually fought once before, all the way back in 2008 at Dream 5 in Osaka, Japan. Overeem won with a modified armbar in the first round, but with it being 9 years later we can expect two different fighters this time around, so anything can happen.

As he continues to prepare for his upcoming bout with Hunt, Overeem brings us behind the scenes of his training once again with the second episode of “The Reem”, Alistair’s YouTube reality show which is now in its fourth season.

In this episode, Alistair takes us to Koh Samui, Thailand, where he puts in some work at Superpro. He then heads back to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he puts the finishing touches on his training at Jackson-Wink.

Check out an all-new episode of “The Reem”:

UFC 209 takes place this Saturday, March 4th, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card starts at 10pm EST, live on pay-per-view.
