The Ultimate Fighting Championship has a new and very famous face on their roster.

During Saturday’s UFC 181 pay-per-view event, the promotion took time to announce the signing of former WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) Champion CM Punk.

CM Punk, whose real name is Phillip Brooks, stated that he will likely fight at middleweight but has not ruled out the possibility of fighting at welterweight.

The former WWE Star is 36-years-old and has a background in BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) as well as taekwondo.

With that said, CM Punk has a no professional fighting experience.

UFC President Dana White says he won’t throw CM Punk to the wolves as he did Brock Lesnar, and that Brooks will likely face someone with a similiar amount of experience in his octagon debut.

What do you think of the signing?

It looks like it’s finally “Johnny Football” time in Cleveland!

ESPN has reported that sources close to the Browns organization have confirmed that their intent is to start Manziel on Sunday when the team hosts their state rival the Cincinnati Bengals.

Johnny Football made his first appearance in Week 13 against the Bills, this after Brian Hoyer was pulled for his poor play.

“Money” made the most of his opportunity, leading the Browns on an 8-play, 80-yard drive, which Johnny capped-off by running in a 12-yard touchdown score.

Unfortunately for Manziel fans, and for Browns fans in general, coach Mike Pettine opted to start Brian Hoyer in Week 14, which resulted in a heartbreaking loss to the Colts.

Hoyer played “Hoyerble” against Indy, completing just 14 of 31 pass attempts while tossing up 2 key interceptions.

The loss left the Browns with a 7-6 record, meaning Cleveland will have to win all three of their final games if they want a chance at making this years playoffs.

Can Johnny Football save the day?

What’s next for new UFC champ Robbie Lawler?

What’s next for new UFC champ Robbie Lawler?

Robbie Lawler is finally a UFC champion!

The “Ruthless One” scored a hard-fought split-decision win over Johny Hendricks in the main event of last weekend’s UFC 181 event in Las Vegas, thus becoming the promotions welterweight champ. 

Just like their first contest, Lawler vs. Hendricks 2 was another close fight, leading many analysts and fans to believe that a trilogy bout (rubbermatch) could possibly be next for the pair of welterweight sluggers.

However, Canadian welterweight standout and Kalapaki Joe’s sponsored fighter Rory MacDonald may have something to say about that. 

Following his victory over Tarec Saffiedine at UFC Fight Night 54, “Ares” was told by UFC officials that he would be the next fighter to challenge for 170-pound gold.

Like Hendricks, Rory also has a history with Lawler, as the young Canadian suffered a split-decision loss to “Ruthless” back at UFC 167 in November of 2013.

Since then, “Ares” has picked up 3 traight victories over Damian Maia, Tyron Woodley and the aforementioned Tarec Saffiedine.

Who would you like to see Robbie Lawler fight next?
