Cheick Kongo’s Amazing Comeback KO

Pat Barry had Cheick Kongo and basically out during their UFC Live on Versus fight on Sunday night. Barry was hammering Kongo and knocked him down. It looked like Kongo went limp, but as he hit the deck he rolled out and got up. You can actually see referee Dan Miragliotta step in to end the bout when Kongo springs to life again.

Then, as Barry marches in for what most figured would be the finishing strikes, Kongo lands a right hand which knocks Barry off balance. He follows it up with a fierce uppercut that sends Barry to sleep.

Will The Oakland Raiders Re-Sign Tight End Zach Miller?

Over the past decade or so, the Oakland Raiders have been one of the worst teams in the NFL and with little or no hope for the future. Even though they have had talented young players come and go, the Raiders just haven’t been able to get back on track in the AFC Conference.

Fortunately, last season was a breath of fresh air for the Oakland Raiders as they became relevant once again. The main reason for the Raiders’ success last year was their potent running game. With running backs Darren McFadden and Michael Bush leading the way, the Oakland Raiders became the second best running team in the NFL behind the division rival Kansas City Chiefs.

Ken Shamrock vs. James Toney Press Conference

UFC legend Ken Shamrock and boxing legend James Toney met for a press conference in which the two traded barbs and almost got into an altercation — you know, the usual presser hype and theatrics to generate interest.

Shamrock yells at Toney to “Go get some sleep!” Toney ‘tries’ to break loose from his entourage’s grip, and there’s a joke in there somewhere about his ground game. I’m an MMA sucker, so yes, I will be watching the fight somewhere. I’m hoping that Shamrock puts his patented leg lock on Toney. If Toney does not submit — although he will — his leg will get shattered up to the knee.

Seattle Seahawks QB: Matt Hasselback or Matt Leinart?

Last season the Seattle Seahawks were able to get into the playoffs by being on the wrong side of history. As the first team to make the playoffs with a losing record the Seahawks made NFL history, but despite being a joke headed into the Wildcard game with the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, Seattle keep their foot on the gas pedal.

After beating the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints when no one saw it coming, the Seattle Seahawks made headlines and got everyone talking about Pete Carroll’s squad and their chances to be a contender in the near future. Despite losing to the Chicago Bears in the next round, the Seattle Seahawks seemed to have a promising future in the Pete Carroll era.
