BERLIN – Anyone who feels that a fighter needs to defend their belt before they can truly be called “champion” can rest easy now that UFC strawweight champion [autotag]Joanna Jedrzejczyk[/autotag] dominated [autotag]Jessica Penne[/autotag] in the main event of UFC Fight Night 69.

Jedrzejczyk (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) put a prolonged beating on Penne (12-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) that had many media members calling for a stoppage earlier than it came. Penne, as tough as anyone in the UFC, continued to try to make something happen while absorbing punishment until the referee jumped in and called a halt to the bout in the third round.

Check out the video highlights of the bout, which took place at the O2 World Berlin in Germany’s capital city and aired on UFC Fight Pass.

Today’s one-handed catch video comes from Class of 2016 recruit

Aerospace Cubicle Engineer (ACE):

103 days until college football!

Originally posted on CollegeFootballTalk:

It was just a few summers ago we were being flooded with college football-themed parody videos to the tunes of “Call Me Maybe” or “Gangnam Style” or the “Harlem Shake.” Thank goodness the best way to go viral these days seems to be by performing extraordinary feats of athleticism in short video form.

We have seen backflips while catching footballs be a rather big thing this offseason. Baylor’s Shawn Oakman’s vertical jump while holding 70-pound weights was impressive as well.  Well, today we take a look at three-star recruit Khaleke Hudson. Hudson, from McKeeseport, Pennsylvania, has a good number of schools on his offer sheet right now. Among the schools with interest include Tennessee, Michigan State, UCLA, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Ohio State. After seeing this video he shared on Twitter, it is easy to see why coaches from around the country are fascinated…
