An MMA fight in Muskegon, Michigan, ended when a competitor starting puking in the cage. Jesse Reasoner had Sean Needham on the ropes during a sluggish KnockOut Promotions super heavyweight bout. After landing some blows on his groggy opponent, Reasoner vomited, forcing the referee to call the match. Needham, who barely had any energy to defend himself during the second round, walked away with a victory via disqualification. Submitted By Billy.

Floyd Mayweather attacked Conor McGregor with a homophobic slur and accused the UFC fighter of racism in the final leg of a promotional tour that has descended into an ugly war of words.
The UFC lightweight champion was again forced to defend himself against allegations of racism as Mayweather rounded on him at a heated press call in front of 10,000 fans at Wembley Arena.
“Racism still exists. It’s all about treating people like you want to be treated. To get respect you must give respect,” said Mayweather, who then called McGregor a “faggot” on stage.
“He totally disrespected black women. He called black people monkeys. Then he spoke disrespectfully to my mother and my daughter. There are certain levels you don’t stoop to and certain levels you just don’t go to. I love everybody from all walks of life.”
Claims of racism against McGregor were first levelled during the opening two legs of the four-date journey through North America and Europe to generate publicity for their August 26 clash. McGregor told Mayweather “dance for me, boy” – a phrase with racial overtones.
In New York, the UFC lightweight champion had only inflamed the issue, saying he was “half-black from the belly button down” before appearing to refer to black people as “dancing monkeys” when discussing the film Rocky III on a chat show.
Irishman McGregor, who has predicted he will win inside four rounds despite never having previously boxed as a professional, vehemently denied being a racist.
“You can be fooled by [Mayweather] if you want to be fooled by him. You know the man’s character and his history. He’s trying to sway people in his favour and it’s a cheap move,” McGregor said.
“I was trying to address something in my own little way but whatever, if he feels it’s disrespectful then he’s an idiot and fuck him as well. It’s a dirty play. I think [the accusation] is ridiculous. I don’t understand it. I know who I am as a person and I think that most realistic people will look at me and know who I am.”
An amazing display of athleticism and sheer dedication.

A man, identifying as a transgender woman, recently dominated a female weightlifting competition, sparking debate on fairness in sports.
Gavin Hubbard, 39 — now going by Laurel Hubbard — is a New Zealand weightlifter who dominated the Australian International weightlifting competition in Melbourne on Sunday. Hubbard lifted 590.9 pounds in the women’s 198.4-pound division, out-lifting the competition by 45 pounds.
Hubbard is the first transgender individual to win her division in this competition.
While many may find this progressive and a reason to celebrate, some of Hubbard’s competitors aren’t seeing it quite that way.
“She is who she is. That’s the way the politics … and what the New Zealanders have decided. I can’t say much more than that,” disappointed bronze medalist Kaitlyn Fassina said. “She is seen as female and that’s the way it is.”
Two-time Olympian Deborah Acason said, “If I was in that category, I wouldn’t feel like I was in an equal situation. I just feel that, if it’s not even, why are we doing the sport?”

Tim Hague, a UFC veteran, is dead at age 34, two days after suffering a boxing knockout Friday night.
Hague died Sunday at a hospital in Edmonton after being in critical condition all weekend, his family said in a statement posted to his sister’s Facebook page. Hague was knocked out in the second round by fellow heavyweight Adam Braidwood at an event promoted by KO Boxing Canada.
“It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today,” the statement read. “He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs. We will miss him with [us] so greatly. We ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Braidwood, a former football player, knocked Hague down several times during the bout, but the referee didn’t call for a finish until one punch left Hague out cold in the second round. Hague was 1-2 as a boxer going into the fight, while Braidwood was 7-1 with six knockouts.
The bout was sanctioned by the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission (ECSC). Hague lost by knockout in a boxing match in December and was the victim of some form of knockout in four of his last MMA fights, stretching back to 2015.
Hague compiled a 21-13 record in MMA with 15 knockouts and four submission. He defeated Pat Barry by first-round submission in his UFC debut back in 2009, but lost his next three and was released by the promotion. The Edmonton native was brought back in 2011 and lost to Matt Mitrione via first-round TKO.
After his UFC run, Hague fought mainly in his native Canada, winning heavyweight titles in the Unified MMA promotion and in XFFC. The latter was just last year, an April 2016 fourth-round TKO victory over Kalib Starnes. Hague fell in his last MMA bout to Michal Andryszak under the ACB banner in Russia by first-round TKO in July 2016.
This is why you NEVER taunt mid fight. The people who taunt are the quickest to hit the mat. I had no idea this fight was even going on this morning. According to ESPN: Holly Holm earned her first win in 19 months Saturday — and brought back memories of her most famous victory in doing so. Holm (11-3) knocked out Bethe Correia (10-3-1) with a vicious left head kick at UFC Fight Night in Singapore. It was Holm’s first win since she stunned Ronda Rousey in a 2015 championship fight, which also ended with a high left kick. The finish came at the 1:09 mark of the third round, in what had been a very slow and tedious contest to that point. Correia fell backwards from the shot, and Holm rushed in with a follow-up left hand before referee Marc Goddard intervened.

Murthel Groenhart vs. Harut Grigorian. Welterweight kickboxer Murthel Groenhart took case of business with a second-round KO of Harut Grigorian. An uppercut and then a knee to the face by Groenhart seemed to put Grigorian on autopilot, and he just stopped fighting. He turned his back and walked away, at which point Groenhart uncorked a massive right hand and that put Grigorian down and out cold. No count was necessary and the KO was indisputably legal. Multiple people then jumped into the ring and began attacking Groenhart.
A group of young cheerleaders came much closer to action on the field than they would have liked when a 90kilogram player clattered into them as they sat by the fence. Wests Tigers' Kevin Naiqama was chasing a kick during his team's game against the Sydney Roosters on Sunday when he took a diving leap that left him skidding across the grass into the unsuspecting girls. Naiqama, 28, collected at least two of the young girls, who appeared to be aged about 10 or 11, as he knocked into them. No one appeared to be injured in the clash, and Naiqama helped the girls up before returning to the field.
With a warrant out for his own arrest in Turkey, Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter said Friday that his father, Mehmet, has been arrested by the Turkish government.
Mehmet Kanter was detained in his Istanbul home for an investigation undertaken by a prosecutor's office in northwestern Turkey, according to the Anadolu news agency.
Enes Kanter released a statement saying his father is being held because of his political views and that he may be tortured "simply for being my family member."
"My father is arrested because of my outspoken criticism of the ruling party. He may get tortured for simply being my family member," Kanter said. "For a second please think and imagine, if something like this is happening to an NBA player, what is happening to the people with no voice or podium to speak on? There could be hundreds of thousands of people that are detained, tortured, or murdered that we are not hearing about."
According to Anadolu, Mehmet Kanter is being sent to Tekirdag province for questioning. In Turkey, people are detained, then prosecutors may seek an arrest pending trial or release the detainee.
Enes Kanter is an outspoken critic of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a known supporter of Fethullah Gulen, a spiritual leader who has lived in exile in Pennsylvania for the past 15 years. The Turkish government blamed Gulen for an attempted military coup last summer, though Gulen denies involvement.
In his statement, Kanter attributed his support of Gulen as the reason for his father's detainment.
"The police raided our home in Istanbul, something that is happening to many innocent families across Turkey just because they are members of Hizmet, inspired by Scholar Fethullah Gulen," Kanter said.
Last summer, Mehmet Kanter told the Daily Sabah, a pro-government newspaper in Turkey, that his family had disowned Enes Kanter because of his political views.
"I apologize to the Turkish people and the president for having such a son," Mehmet Kanter wrote.
Enes Kanter said recently that he has not spoken with his father in almost two years.
Last week, the Turkish government issued a warrant for Kanter, claiming he was part of a terrorist group. He was briefly detained by airport officials in Romania on May 20 after having his passport revoked by the Turkish government. Kanter was able to return to the United States on May 22 with a green card. But due to the warrant, he will likely be unable to travel internationally.
During interviews after returning to the U.S., Kanter said his father, a former college professor, had been spit on at the grocery store because of his son.
"Right now, even if I try to communicate with my parents, my mom or dad or brother or sister, [the government] will probably listen to their phones and as soon as they are in contact with me, they will put them in a jail -- and the jails are not fun," Kanter said at a news conference. "Right now, my family can't even go out to eat. My brother told me that my dad went to the supermarket and they spit on his face."
Pictures show the Australian team lined up at the halfway mark, with the Saudi players ignoring the gesture as they get information to start the game. Saudi players on the bench refused to stand for the minute's silence.
A spokesperson from the Football Federation Australia told Daily Mail Australia they had been advised prior to the match that the Saudi team would not be taking part. 'The FFA sought agreement from the Asian Football Confederation and the Saudi national team to hold a minute's silence in memory of those lost in Saturday night's terror bombings in London and in particular the two Australian women,' the spokesperson said.
'Both the AFC and the Saudi team agreed that the minute of silence could be held.
'The FFA was further advised by Saudi team officials that this tradition was not in keeping with Saudi culture and they would move to their side of the field and respect our custom whilst taking their own positions on the field.
Fans shocked as Nick Kyrgios asks a spectator at the French Open for a BEER as he bombs out of the tournament in the second round with another embarrassing racquet-destroying display
Tennis player Maxime Hamou's French Open credential was revoked because he grabbed a reporter and kissed her on the neck during a live TV interview at the tournament.
The French Tennis Federation announced Tuesday it was punishing the 21-year-old French qualifier "following his inappropriate behaviour towards a female journalist" a day earlier, when he lost in the first round at Roland Garros.
The FFT said it would investigate the matter further.
Hamou's behavior also caught the attention of French politicians.
On Twitter, Sports Minister Laura Flessel called what Hamou did to Eurosport TV's Maly Thomas an "assault." Cecile Duflot, a member of parliament, tweeted: "He kisses her by force, she tries to get away, he holds her by the neck and everyone... laughs #tired."
Flessel and Duflot also criticized 1988 French Open runner-up Henri Leconte and other in-studio guests who laughed at and applauded Hamou's on-air actions.
"A live assault is not funny," Flessel wrote. "We should never let this happen, and never trivialize such acts."
Hamou, who is ranked 287th, posted a statement on Instagram on Tuesday in which he apologized to Thomas "if she feels hurt or shocked by my attitude during her interview."
He wrote, in French, that he let his "excess of enthusiasm express itself awkwardly toward Maly, who I know and sincerely respect."
Hamou added that he would offer an apology in-person if Thomas wants one.
Eurosport said in a statement that it regretted what had happened.
"The behaviour of the interviewee was highly inappropriate and we do not condone such conduct in any way," the statement said. "Maly is a highly respected journalist and we are pleased that a full apology is being offered. We apologise to any viewers who may have been affected."
Earlier in the game Blues halfback Mitch Pearce was floored in a crunching head-high tackle in the 50th minute of State of Origin game one. The New South Wales Blues were leading 12-4 and attacking the Queensland line when Pearce's head was crunched in a tackle during the collision with Will Chambers. Pearce lay momentarily motionless on the ground with Queensland five-eight Anthony Milford also collected by some friendly fire after that tackle. Both Milford and Pearce were forced off the field with the Blues halfback in serious trouble. The Blues lead Queensland 28-4 in the second half.
