Conor McGregor Make History At UFC 205 In NYC

November 15th, 2016

Conor McGregor did not ‘come to take part’, he came to ‘take over’ and now he is the first two-division champion in UFC history.

The Notorious electrified the Madison Square Garden crowd with a dominant and measured performance, dropping the former lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez three times in the opening round alone.

The American never established a foothold in the bout, and the referee was forced to call the fight by T.K.O. when McGregor sent his opponent to the canvas once more… And with that stoppage after 3:04 of round two Conor McGregor silenced his critics and further cemented his place in the history books of MMA.

He leaves New York city with both the featherweight, and the lightweight belts, and big decisions to make about his next move.

Man Plunges 25,000ft Without Parachute

October 20th, 2016

Skydiver Luke Aikins lands safely in a net after plummeting to the ground in California without a parachute. A stuntman has fallen 25,000ft from a plane to the ground without wearing a parachute, landing in a net at 120mph.

Luke Aikins, a professional skydiver with 18,000 jumps under his belt, leapt from a plane without a parachute in a stunt broadcast live on television.

He endured forces of nearly 4G as he landed in the net on his back in the Simi Valley, California.

When asked afterwards how he felt, he said: “I’m almost levitating. It’s incredible. To think what just happened… to be honest I just can’t get it out of my mouth – all these guys… everybody. It is awesome.”

The net that 42-year-old Mr Aikins landed in was just 100ft by 100ft.

What goes up must come down… at speed!

September 29th, 2016

This sure is a way to make your adrenal glands stand up and say “Hello!” – It is in fact what most cyclists live for!

It’s rocky, rutted and radically steep. It looks like a killer slope. Yet if you can manage to hike down that slope, you can certainly ride down it. 1000’s of people a year spend over 2 hours carrying their heavy bikes up the biggest mountain in England & Wales, Snowdon.

Once reaching the top they will buckle up and take the 30-40 minute high speed thrill seeking ride as they make their way back down.

Here is Tim & Ed carrying their bikes up Snowdon! (they sure do look like heavy bikes)
