Conor Mcgregor finds himself in the news again for all the wrong reasons, as he was arrested in Miami on Monday.
The arrest stems from an alleged incident in which McGregor took a fan’s phone and smashed it.
McGregor was charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief, both of which were felonies.
The UFC star did not have to spend the night in jail following his arrest though, as he was bonded out Monday night.
Now with this arrest, it appears that McGregor has some new hurdles to overcome outside of the octagon before he can get back to fighting.
Ja Rule Curses the Timberwolves After They Trolled His Halftime Performance
Ja Rule has had a turbulent last couple of years, as the rapper was the face of the infamous Fyre Festival.
Rule’s reputation was sure to take a hit, as a bunch of rich kids were promised an exclusive music festival experience on a private island with IG models, but were instead met with cheese sandwiches and tents.
Last night, Rule was out performing though, as he did the halftime show for the Milwaukee Bucks home game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Bucks may have been subtly trolling Ja Rule by getting shots up while he was performing, but the real shots were fired by the Timberwolves twitter account.
Ja Rule was clearly upset with the Timberwovles after the game and went so far as to curse them from winning a championship unless they apologize.
Considering the fact that the Timberwolves have never won a championship, or even a conference championship for that matter, Ja Rule’s curse may have the legs to last 30 more years.
Samuel L. Jackson Trolls Spike Lee’s New York Knicks at Oscars
There are few fans in sports that are more associated with their team than Spike Lee is with the Knicks.
Lee, who is often sitting courtside at Madison Square Garden, was unable to be at the Knicks game last night because he was nominated for an Oscar.
Luckily for Lee, he was able to get a score update during the Academy Awards Ceremony from his good friend Samuel L. Jackson
While most fans would be happy to hear that there team had won their first home game in over two months, Lee had to remind us all that winning is not what the Knicks want to be doing right now.
Things would only get better for Lee, as it was announced that he won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay for his film BlacKkKlansman.
This was the first competitive Oscar win for Lee, making for a great moment between two friends.
If Lee gets this excited for winning an Oscar, just imagine how thrilled he will be if the Knicks tanking pays off and they draft Zion Williamson with the first overall pick.
Fencing might look much cooler in the coming years.
The international governing body of fencing is giving a qualified thumbs-up to France’s embrace of lightsaber duels.
The Associated Press reported this week on the growth of lightsaber dueling in France, after the French fencing federation gave the nascent sport its official blessing.
The International Fencing Federation, or FIE, said Tuesday that although it doesn’t include lightsaber fencing as one of its official disciplines, it is “interested in how this new event progresses.”
Responding to AP questions sent two weeks ago, federation official Serge Timacheff said the FIE has been in touch with France’s federation about lightsaber events, rules, and equipment.
By email, Timacheff said: “We are always watching new trends in swordplay, and we are interested in observing the development and adoption of it in the French Fencing Federation.”
