One of the brightest prospects in the New York Yankees lineup this coming season is first baseman Greg Bird. However, it is unfortunate that the young player will be missing the entirety of the 2016 season after deciding to undergo surgery to treat his injured right shoulder.
The injury is specifically described as a torn labrum and something that will have to be surgically repaired in order to prevent any reoccurrence. He will be under the care of Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital for Special Surgery.
There are also some reports saying that Bird may actually be able to make a return at the tail end of the season, but there really is no telling when he'll be ready, especially right now that the surgery hasn't been performed yet. more >>
Jon Jones had a meaningful question and answer session with mixed martial arts fans on Twitter last Sunday, where he revealed that he wants to fight three more times in the light heavyweight division before eventually moving up to the heavyweight. If he had it his way, he wants those fights with three particular opponents already in mind.
According to an earlier report from the UFC, there is a planned rematch between the former champion Jones and the current champion, Daniel Cormier. However, no date or venue has been set for now, but the announcement certainly is in line with what Jones hoped for.
The American MMA star defeated Cormier in their January 2015 fight via unanimous decision to wrest the light heavyweight title. However, he was quickly stripped off the same title four months after because of an arrest involving a hit-and-run incident. Cormier went on to fight for the vacant belt against Anthony Johnson, winning via submission. more >>
Even at retirement, undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. just can't help himself but make the headlines. This time, he's saying that even the "crazy numbers" being offered will not convince him to fight again. According to the former pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, someone's offering him money worth nine figures to make a comeback.
But he's not interested, as it appears. "As of right now, I am out completely," he said. The 38-year-old may still be enjoying the fruits of his win against Manny Pacquiao and Andre Berto, which means he's in no hurry to earn some more. His fight against the "Pacman" is the richest in the history of the sport and the kind of money he earned for that fight is good enough reason for him to stay retired.
Mayweather is credited for winning world titles at five different weight classes, starting in super featherweight. He eventually won 12 world titles all in all, deciding to retire with an unblemished record of 49 wins, 0 defeats, and 26 knockouts. The last time he fought was September of last year when he easily defeated Andre Berto. more >>
Drake has earned chuckles for his role in T-Mobile's commercial for the upcoming Super Bowl 50 in which his hit song "Hotline Bling" is parodied.
The rapper's 30-second commercial for T-Mobile shows him performing his dance moves before company executives cut the recording to insert a few outrageous changes in the lyrics of his song "Hotline Bling." In the ad clip for the Super Bowl 50, Drake smoothly agrees to grant the requests of the executives, according to Vibe.
The Hollywood Life says the ad is hilarious because it flaunts the rapper's ability to make fun of himself and his work of art. When one of the company executives in the T-Mobile ad asks Drake to make some variations in the song's lyrics to insert the benefits of having a phone plan, he happily agrees and says he loves changes. more >>
