Deion "Prime Time" Sanders says he's submitting to Jesus after celebrating an off-field victory in the form of winning a $2.2 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders.
Pilar, the 41-year-old actress, previously accused Deion, the 48-year-old NFL Hall of Famer, of abusing her and their children. Now, TMZ is reporting that Pilar has to pay $2.2 million after defaming Deion's character, which also cancels out any money the athlete would have paid in their divorce settlement.
While TMZ is reporting that Deion feels "relief and vindication," he took to Twitter to retweet a message from the Bossip blog about the lawsuit before revealing how his life changed when he surrendered to Jesus. more >>
Russell Wilson glorified God before battling through health issues to win one of the toughest games of his career on his birthday Sunday.
During a post game press conference, Wilson, 27, admitted that he had been suffering from flu-like symptoms in the 39-30 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He woke up at 5:45 a.m. and recalled getting three IVs placed into his arm throughout the day.
"I've been up since pretty early this morning," Wilson said at the postgame press conference. "… I was good last night, then this morning I woke up at 5:45 and it didn't look too good after that." more >>
Ronda "Rowdy" Rousey lost her UFC bantamweight championship title in a knock-out defeat to Holly Holm in the main event of the UFC 193 on Nov. 15. It was her sixth title defense. Fans expect the former world champion to bounce back and reclaim her title, perhaps in a rematch with Holm in 2016. But will the new UFC bantamweight champion let her have the title back?
The 34-year-old American mixed martial artist and former professional boxer recently spoke to The New York Times and revealed some details about her preparation for the fight, knocking Rousey out, and her plans for the future. When asked how many times she would win if she had to fight Rousey 10 times, the woman of the moment didn't hesitate to answer: "Ten." The characteristically humble UFC champion went on to say: "Because if I tell myself that there is one that I might not get, then I'll be vulnerable. I also know that I'm beatable, so I'm going to train twice as hard. She's going to come back. She's mad that it's not her title anymore. I've got to be twice as ready as last time."
Rousey was hospitalized following UFC 193 and was medically suspended by the UFC. She missed the post-fight press conference and has yet to publicly comment on her loss apart from an Instagram post thanking fans for their support and vowing to come back after taking some time off. more >>
Audi may have had its second consecutive year of defeat at Le Mans, but the German automobile manufacturer is determined to get back in the winner's circle next year. At the Audi Sport Finale event in Munich on Saturday, Nov. 28, the company unveiled its challenger for next season, a thoroughly redesigned R18 billed as the company's most powerful and efficient race car to date.
Though Audi is keeping the technical details secret for now, the new race car has undergone significant enhancements compared to the 2015 Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro. The Audi 2016 R18 is set to compete in the premier Le Mans Prototype 1-Hybrid class of the FIA World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours next season.
The new R18 has benefitted from improvements such as lightweight construction, innovative aerodynamic features, and a modified hybrid system that uses lithium-ion batteries to store energy, along with a TDI engine optimized for efficiency. This means that the company has done away with the mechanical flywheel setup of last year's R18, but has kept the diesel fuel that has set Audi apart from rivals Toyota and Porsche, both of which opt for gasoline. more >>
After Canelo Alvarez's win over Miguel Cotto on Nov. 21 reinforced his position as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, could he be next in line to fight champion boxer Manny Pacquiao?
The WBC has mandated a fight between 25-year-old Alvarez and Genady "GGG" Glolovkin, but the new middleweight champion may opt to drop the belt and face off with a different opponent instead. "Fighter of the Decade" Manny Pacquaio may just be the guy, as Top Rank promoter Bob Arum reportedly suggested to Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times earlier this month. To this, Alvarez replied, "Yes, of course, it's a fight [Canelo vs. Pacquiao] that could happen in the future, but right now my focus is on Miguel Cotto 100 percent and nobody else." "I am not thinking about the future," he said.
Now that Alvarez is the new WBC middleweight champion, a fight between him and boxing's top welterweight could be a pay-per-view hit. more >>
