- Lady Boxers, Fightin’: Two of the best of the female sweet science were in MMA action last week, with Claressa Shields earning a win in her first professional MMA fight, TKOing Brittney Elkin in the third round in a fight she wasn’t completely in control of at PFL 4. Then, it was Amanada Serrano improving to 2-0 with a guillotine just a minute in against Valentina Garcia Friday at iKon Fighting Federation 7.
- Breaking: Bones: That makes three UFC Pay-Per-Views in a row, UFC 261, 262, and 263 where a hellacious limb break happened. Weidman, Jacare, and now Jamahal Hill have all provided nightmare fuel for paying customers.
- Happy Trails, White Lion: And that’s a career for Alexander Povetkin, as Sasha retires with a career record of 36-3-1 and will go down as one of the best heavyweight boxers to never win a world championship.
