Award-Winning Swimsuit/Fitness Model Becomes Pro Boxer

  Award-Winning Swimsuit/Fitness Model Becomes Pro Boxer Avril Mathie gets lots of questions about her dual careers, which is understandable when you learn that she is a swimsuit model and a professional boxer. "I train in the same gym as Adriana Lima in Miami, and she watched me spar one time," Mathie told ESNEWS. "She's like, 'I don't know how you do it?' Obviously she's a fair bit more advanced in modeling than me. I don't know that I'd do it at her level either. But I just love it. I don't care. It's motivation to move my head and not get hit.

CONOR MCGREGOR ' s striking coach Owen Roddy has warned Floyd Mayweather against entering the Octagon. McGregor , 29, hasn't fought in MMA since his historic UFC 205 victory over Eddie Alvarez, so a rematch with Mayweather seems highly unlikely at this moment in time.

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. would make a whole lot of money boxing each other back in August of 2017. But MMA is an entirely different beast. And while “Money” continues to tease stepping into the Octagon, McGregor’s coach isn’t so sure.

“I think it’s a bad move for Floyd to get into the cage,” coach Owen Roddy says. “I just think he doesn’t have enough time to learn what it takes to fight in the Octagon.”

However, Roddy knows what sells. And he knows Mayweather likes when the money is right.

“But he could make a lot of money. And money talks.”

That said, “Money” was reportedly looking to apply for his MMA license back in March. But now, it appears as though he’s having second thoughts.

Several UFC employees were victims of armed robbery in Brazil

  Several UFC employees were victims of armed robbery in Brazil The UFC has traveled to Rio de Janeiro for its latest event this weekend, and there was an unfortunate incident involving several of the company’s employees in Brazil Thursday night. UFC president Dana White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that a number of UFC staff members were victims of an armed robbery on Thursday. While several employees lost personal items such as phones, wallets and passports, there were no injuries reported. Police are in the process of reviewing security footage from where the incident took place. The official weigh-ins for UFC 224 were scheduled for Friday morning, and Okamoto reports that there have been no indications any of the robbery victims were fighters. Between Thursday night’s incident and the mayhem that occurred with Conor McGregor last month, White and the UFC have had to deal with a lot of drama — the bad kind — in recent weeks.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR has been warned against entering the mixed martial arts world. UFC News: McGregor to KILL Mayweather in MMA fight, Werdum talks. UFC News: Conor McGregor return statement, big Nate Diaz fight claim, Khabib’ s coach talk.

“As of right now, I’m touring around the world, doing different things, embracing my fans, getting love from all around the world, right now I’m just traveling,” Mayweather says. “I don’t know what the future holds, but as of right now, I’m retired. I’m not thinking about fighting right now.”

That’s probably for the best. Floyd can box, but just about any fighter in MMA could take him down with ease. Perhaps he should just leave it at that.

Pau Gasol: 'Becky Hammon can coach NBA basketball. Period.' .
Pau Gasol penned an open letter on The Players Tribune where he voiced his opinion that an NBA team should hire Becky Hammon as a head coach. Hammon, 41, led the San Antonio Spurs to the Las Vegas Summer League title in 2015 and has served as one of Gregg Popovich's closest assistants since 2014. She made history as the first female full-time assistant in the NBA. Hammon is considered a strong candidate for the Milwaukee Bucks' head coaching job. "If you’re making that argument to anyone who’s actually played any high-level basketball, you’re going to seem really ignorant," Gasol wrote. "But I also have a simple response to it — which is that I’ve been in the NBA for 17 years. I’ve won two championships … I’ve played with some of the best players of this generation … and I’ve played under two of the sharpest minds in the history of sports, in Phil Jackson and Gregg Popovich. And I’m telling you: Becky Hammon can coach. I’m not saying she can coach pretty well. I’m not saying she can coach enough to get by. I’m not saying she can coach almost at the level of the NBA’s male coaches. I’m saying: Becky Hammon can coach NBA basketball. Period." Gasol added that the Spurs did not hire Hammon as a publicity stunt. He notes that Popovich is particular about the way he develops his players and coaches. Former Cleveland Cavaluers coach David Blatt is also a candidate for the the Bucks job.
