The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 105-97 yesterday evening, thus earning the franchise’s first NBA Championship in 40 years.

The Warriors proved to be too much for the Lebron James and the Cavaliers, overwhelming Cleveland with 3-pointers and some stellar defense during game six of the NBA Finals.

Golden State forward Andre Iguodala was named the Final’s Most Valuable Player, as he was able to slow down the offensive production of LeBron James while adding some key offense of his own.“Iggy” was able to put up 25-points in yesterday’s series clinching game six victory over Cleveland.
Golden State point guard Stephen Curry, also known as this year’s NBA MVP, also contributed 25-points in last night’s win.

The championship-starved city of Cleveland will now have to wait another year for a chance at redemption.

LeBron James gave Cav’s fans everything he had during the Finals, but even his miraculous efforts were not enough to play spoiler to the Warriors.

“If I could have gave more… I would have.” stated a dejected James after the loss.

Renan Barao returns against Mitch Gagnon at UFC Fight Night 58

Renan Barao returns against Mitch Gagnon at UFC Fight Night 58

Former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao (32-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) will return to the octagon this December when he meets Mitch Gagnon (12-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at “UFC Fight Night 58” in Brazil.

Renan Barao will return to the octagon for the first time since losing his strap to T.J. Dillashaw at May’s UFC 173 event in Las Vegas. That loss snapped a 33-fight win streak for Barao, which included a perfect 7-0 run in the UFC.

Barao had been slated to rematch T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 177, but unfortunately the former champion fell ill while cutting weight and was unable to perform.

Meanwhile, Mitch Gagnon will be looking to extend his current win streak to five when he takes on Barao this winter. The Canadian bantamweight was most recently seen in action earlier this month at “UFC Fight Night 54”, where he scored a submission win over Roman Salazar. Prior to that, Gagnon earned a decision win over Tim Gorman in April.

“UFC Fight Night 58” takes place December 20 live from Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil. FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass are expected to carry the card.

The event is headlined by a middleweight fight featuring former lightweight champ Lyoto Machida taking on the always game C.B. Dollaway.

Will Mitch Gagnon be able to pull of the upset or will Barao return to form in front of his home country?
