Holm finishes Correia with vicious head kick KO at UFC in Singapore FOXSports Damon Martin 10 hrs ago Video by CBS Sports Holly Holm knew her back was up against a wall after losing three straight fights in the UFC. It had been a roller coaster ride for Holm after she became an overnight sensation with a second-round knockout against Ronda Rousey in 2015, but she failed to capture that same level of success in her past few fights. Still, Holm had faced nothing but the best fighters in the world during that stretch so she knew that with a few minor adjustments, she could get back to the top of her division. A third-round knockout against former title contender Bethe Correia ...

To put Chicago's 25 wins into perspective, the Cubs got to 25 wins last year in just 31 games. Poster ...

The Reds had a little fun at the expense of Cubs fans during Friday’s game at Cincinnati’s Great American Park. Now that the Chicago team has erased its underdog status by winning its first World Series in 108 years, the Reds took advantage of the throngs of newly minted Cubs fans that have come out of the woodwork with this trolling “Bandwagon Cam.” This seemed particularly harsh, because it started out like just your everyday in-game opportunity for fans to see themselves on the big screen. Until one spotted the “Bandwagon Cam” logo on the bottom right of the screen. And then threw shady “Life long Cubs fan since 2016” and “Bought ...

On paper, the versatile Florida Gators quarterback used his ability for quick thinking congruent to his fleet of foot (did you know whites can be fast too? Not if you read Sports Illustrated) to lead his team to two championships (2006 and 2008), while cultivating his personal trophy case by winning the prestigious Heisman trophy, Quarterback Of the Year, SEC Player of the Year (twice), and countless other decorations illustrating his immense talent. Even before being drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos in 2010, he was a sought after commodity slated to continue the legacy of what made John ...
