Amanda Nunes Shocks MMA World By Knocking Out Cyborg in Just 51 Seconds

Amanda Nunes was an underdog all her life. Today, she might go down as the greatest female MMA fighter of all time. This weekend, she knocked out the most feared female striker in MMA history and it only took her 51 seconds.

The win also made Nunes the first female double champion in UFC history.

Nunes holds the UFC featherweight and bantamweight titles and has defeated both Ronda Rousey and Cyborg by first-round knockouts. Nunes won a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for her efforts. The knockout extended her winning streak to eight straight.

 

“Nothing was going to stop me from what I wanted to do tonight,” Nunes said post-fight. “When she connected with a couple of punches, I just said, ‘I’m going to walk right through her.’”

Nunes continued her post-fight interview with gratitude to her fans and the gilded MMA community that supports her year-round, including bride-to-be Nina Ansaroff who fights in the Strawweight division.

Nunes defied the odds inside the cage in a similar manner in which she has done in her steady rise to stardom. She was never as explosive as Justino or had the same crossover look as Rousey. But she has now violently knocked out both of them, each in less than a minute. In. just two years, Nunes’ legacy is already set in stone.

First Black Owned Cannabis Company To Be Featured In Times Square On NYE

With the legalization of cannabis spreading across the country, the market is opening up for weed enthusiasts to transform their love of the green leaf into big business. The cannabis business is proving to be a great opportunity for African Americans (especially Black women), according to marketing expert Dasheeda Dawson.

Dasheeda Dawson, a graduate of Princeton University and Rutgers Business School, a former corporate marketing executive turned cannabis innovator, is making a name for herself in the cannabis business. On New Year’s Eve, she will make history as the head of the first ever African American cannabis company to be featured in a Times Square promotional campaign. The timing couldn’t be better after Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement to prioritize adult-use cannabis legalization in New York State for the New Year and Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsing the idea in New York City.

According to the Weed Head, Dasheeda and her brand will appear in a 15 second digital billboard promotion highlighting the book, and as part of larger collective initiative helmed by Honeysuckle Magazine, a nationally distributed print and digital publication celebrating audacious women and bringing counterculture to the masses.

“New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration and ushering in a fresh start and perspective,” Dawson said in a statement. “It’s a time for entrepreneurs and businesses to reassess their goals and objectives. We’re thrilled to showcase our workbook at Times Square, the world’s most iconic New Year’s Eve location”

Tip Jar Robber Drowns In Pond Running From Atlanta Police

Some might say that karma came back quickly for this guy, but damn…

According to WSB-TV, a man who swiped a tip jar from a pizza shop in the Migos’ hometown of Gwinnett County crashed into a pond and drowned while running from police.

18-year-old Jaylen Purge was being chased by cops on Beaver Ruin Road and was found dead on Steve Reynolds Boulevard inside his car.

“So this guy came, right, and I asked him, ‘How may I help you sir?’ He’s like, ‘Do you guys accept EBT stamps?’ I said, ‘No, sorry sir.’ He said, ‘How about your tips?’ He took the tip jar, and he runs away. I tried to chase him, to stop him, and he drove away like so fast, he almost ran over me,” Angeles said.

Cops noticed Purge speeding away from the scene and gave chase. At some point his car ran off the road into some trees where police found his vehicle almost completely submerged.

There was less than $100 in the tip jar. SMFH.

Donald Trump Compares Border Wall to Wall Around the Obamas Home

Donald Trump think it’s absolutely necessary to build a wall surrounding the border, and compared it to the fence that surrounds the Obamas home.

“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound,” Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon. “I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!”

The Obamas purchased their Kalorama home in 2017 for $8 million and have been renting it for the past two 1/2 years. The wedded couple began building the fence last year and it has a metal gate and brick columns. Additionally, there are guarded booths.

A spokeswoman for the beloved family declined to comment. In Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, she said that Trump’s false conspiracy theories has led her to fear for her family’s safety.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?” she wrote. “What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk.”
