I just want to confirm that Rachel Nichols and Michelle Beadle will both receive press credentials to any and all Deadspin-promoted fights.
Deadspin says it has signed a record-setting deal to promote a fight between boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
ESPN opened its annual upfront presentation to advertisers in New York earlier this week with a full brass band performing a New Orleans funeral march. It was tempting to read too much into it—ESPN poking fun with some gallows humor about its subscriber losses and recent layoffs of 100 employees—but it revealed itself…
I’ve always thought JJ won that first fight, from the moment I saw it live to every time I’ve watched it since, but it was a close fight. I think there’s a lot to the idea that different fighters are built for different-length bouts: JJ is made for five-rounders, and Gadelha for three.
She’s not just the greatest female fighter in the UFC, she’s the greatest female fighter in any combat sport, and I think perhaps the single most dominant fight in any sport today.
Joanna Jędrzejczyk fucking rules.
In retrospect, it’s amazing that Eddie Alvarez survived his fight against Dustin Poirier long enough for it to descend into madness.
The Yankees will be without closer Aroldis Chapman for about a month, sending him to the 10-day disabled list today with rotator cuff inflammation.
Cosmologists are in the business of figuring out how and why we got here. But if you call their work unscientific, you’re sure to set off a nerve.
Matt Harvey’s non-dildo-related suspension is just the latest beef that the Mets have tried and failed to keep inside the clubhouse, instead looking on in horror as the beef spills over into the stadium corridors and onto the field and everywhere, just nothing but beef, rancid, scabrous beef smeared across the…
In his “Coach’s Corner” bit after the first quarter of last night’s Game 4 between the Celtics and the Wizards, Boston coach Brad Stevens explained to TNT’s David Aldridge how his team had shrugged off an early Washington run to end the period leading 24-20. “Even when it was 8-0 them,” he said, “we were playing way…
Depends what you mean. Smashed sesamoids were always ugly. Anything where the leg was shattered and the horse tried to stand up on it and then went down again. But catastrophic injuries usually put the horse into shock right away. A bad bowed tendon seems to cause them more pain.
Kevin Durant has had it tonight with the Jazz mascot, angrily telling it off and earning a flagrant foul for shoving Gobert late in the game. Durant also had words with a man in a bear costume, depicted above.
This coming Wednesday, Deadspin will be holding a party at our New York offices to celebrate the release of The Bittersweet Science, the newly released anthology of boxing writing edited by Carlo Rotella and Mike Ezra and featuring, among others, our own Hamilton Nolan and Charles Farrell. What’s more, you’re invited!
Some of the people I write about are still alive and have done things that can’t be protected by the statute of limitations. For that reason, I won’t provide some names or talk about some things that happened. There are also people who are still alive who did me favors. I’d hardly be repaying them by telling people…
The Cubs just wrapped a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers, during which newly imported Brewers hitting sensation Eric Thames scored six runs and hit .545 with a home run. Thames has exploded onto the scene after spending a few years tearing up the KBO, and he looks like a completely different player than…
Of all the amazing sentences and couplets and paragraphs in this wonderful Bloomberg story about the troubles of a juice and juice-press technology company called Juicero Inc., I think the following is my favorite:
Truly a reference that panders to horse racing’s key demographic: Dizzy Dean fans
See, America, this is what you get when you elect a wishy-washy liberal to office. It took Obama like two years to kill this guy! A Republican who's strong on national security would've taken bin Laden out in no time.
