The Seattle Seahawks made headlines this weekend by acquiring standout defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson in a trade with the New York Jets.

Richardson comes to the Hawks on an $8 million per season deal which Seattle can easily afford.

Sheldon Richardson played 15 games with the Jets last season recording 38 tackles, 24 assists, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

The move improves Seattle’s already solid defensive line which includes Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Frank Clark.

Richardson has looked like a beast so far this preseason so Seattle fans should be thrilled by the trade.

Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor put forth a valiant effort in his boxing super fight with Floyd Mayweather last weekend in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately, after a terrific opening four rounds, “Mystic Mac” fatigued late in the bout which allowed Floyd Mayweather to score a tenth-round TKO victory.
In the above video, we see an emotional Conor McGregor apologize to UFC President Dana White for not becoming the first man to ever defeat the legendary boxer.

Of course, Dana White had nothing but praise for the Irish superstars performance against “Money”.

Conor McGregor: “I’m sorry man.”

Dana White: “Sorry?”

Conor McGregor: “Yea.”

Dana White: “Dude I’m ecstatic. Very, very f*cking badass! I am telling you, you’re unbelievable!”

Conor McGregor is expected to return to the octagon for his next combat sports appearance.

The “Notorious” one has been linked to a possible trilogy bout with Nate Diaz at UFC 219.

However, according to Nate Diaz’s boxing coach, the UFC will have to cough up at least $20 million for “The Stockton Slugger” to faceoff with McGregor for a third time.
