Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline The Best in Sports & Sports Entertainment Sun, 24 May 2015 05:45:05 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Daniel Cormier: Jon Jones, Get Your Sh*t Together!! (Video) Sun, 24 May 2015 05:20:21 +0000 Cormier-Rumble-UFC-187

In a fight that had a lot to live up to, Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson took on Daniel Cormier for the recently vacated UFC light heavyweight championship.

Within the first few seconds of the fight ‘Rumble’ hit DC with a right hook that nearly took him off of his feet. Johnson sensed that Cormier was vulnerable and went for yet another under-1 minute KO victory but DC was able to weather the storm. The rest of the first round was slowed by Cormier as he was able to pin Johnson against the octagon and recuperate.

The second round showed Cormier’s strength and ability to make between round adjustments. He limited AJ’s striking ability by closing the distance and finally landed a huge slam that led to him holding top control for the round. He tried to lock in a Kimura several times but he wasn’t able sink in the submission. The attempts were enough to give DC confidence entering the 3rd round and in the 3rd Cormier showed why he was undefeated before the Jon Jones fight.

Cormier was relentless in his attack of the winded Anthony Johnson. He used leg kicks and timely punches to counter ‘Rumble’s’ looping blows. Not long into the round Johnson slipped and that mistake spelled the beginning of the end for him. Cormier used the slip to gain control of Johnson and take his back. Once he had his back he was able to sink in the rear-naked choke that ended the fight.

DC had done it, he hadn’t failed like he had in his other big moments, he was at the top of his sport for the first time in his life.

Daniel Cormier’s first words as champion.

UFC 187 Recap: Weidman Dominates Belfort With 1st Rd TKO Sun, 24 May 2015 04:08:14 +0000 Weidman BElfort UFC 187

Chris Weidman looked like he was in trouble early, to the delight of the Brazilian fans in attendance, but he weathered the storm early in the fight and dominated Belfort later in the 1st round.

Vitor came out strong to begin the fight and had Chris off-balance with his mixture of punches and head kicks. During one point in the round Belfort unleashed an impressive barrage of punches and knees that seemed to have Weidman dazed. Weidman covered his face with both arms and let Belfort tee off on him until Vitor backed up from sheer exhaustion. At that point Chris knew he had him.

Chris got the fight back to the middle of the ring, there he stalked Belfort and landed a lighting quick takedown. The look in Vitor’s eyes said it all.

Flat-back on the canvas Vitor knew he was in trouble and had no answer for the size/weight of Weidman. Weidman quickly worked his way to a full mount and began his series of ground and pound.

After 30 seconds the referee had seen enough and decided to save Belfort from any more punishment. The champion,Weidman, stood in triumph and the crowd erupted. USA chants rang loud and Weidman took his usual celebratory lap around the octagon.

His message post fight, “Stop doubting me, this is the last chance you have to join the team!”

That statement says all you need to know about Chris Weidman.

Lil B Says Harden Still Has Time to Apologize Sun, 24 May 2015 03:21:40 +0000 Lil Harden B

Before Game 2, Lil B gave Harden a warning.

Lil B tells TMZ Sports, “If Harden doesn’t tell what he is doing, which is the Lil B cooking dance, he will be cursed. He needs to stop stealing Lil B swag without showing love.”

Lil B is a reasonable man — he’s giving Harden until Game 3 to give him credit, but after that he says the curse goes into effect.

Harden got a small taste of the curse at the end of Game 2, he had time to reach out and apologize to Lil B, but he didn’t.

So, what happens?

The Rockets get smacked in Game 3 at home by 35 points and Harden shot horribly. Lesson to be learned here?


Lil B says Harden just needs to apologize.

Steph Drains a 3, Leaves Rockets Fan Hanging Wanting Dap (Video) Sun, 24 May 2015 02:57:46 +0000 Rockets Fan

Steph Curry is converting Rockets fans one three at a time.

Rockets fan looking for dap from Steph Curry. #nba #nbaplayoffs

A video posted by BSO (@blacksportsonline) on

Now, the question begs should this fan be punished in some way? Rockets fans on Twitter are not happy, but is it just real recognized real?

I think the issue is that the fan initially was trying to trash talk Curry, then less than a second later he wanted to go hang out with him and listen to some Bun B.

Sadly, because the game was a blowout, this was the most interesting thing that happened tonight.

Reddit User’s Theory on LeBron Being Genetically Engineered is Amazing Sun, 24 May 2015 00:59:06 +0000 lebron-batman

You know………

This isn’t that far-fetched or I have been watching too much of the FLASH TV Series, whatever the case it is a brilliant read courtesy of ‏@getnickwright.

Reddit LeBron

Reddit LeBron 2

So basically LeBron is Captain America, but unlike Cap who was a weak soldier before being given the super serum, they built LeBron from birth, which basically makes him Ben Reilly the Spider-Man clone.

I’ve been reading a lot of comics lately, so bare with me.

You know what would crazy?

LeBron: Violence is Not The Answer For Brelo Verdict Sun, 24 May 2015 00:32:38 +0000

Russell and Malissa Williams’ car backfired in front of a Cleveland police station in 2012. The police thought someone fired a gun at them and this led to a high-speed chase. Once the police had the couple pinned down the unloaded 134 shots into their car.

The last of those shots came from Michael Brelo.

Brelo himself shot 49 times into the car. Brelo who said he was in fear of his life, jumped onto the hood of the car after over a 100+ shots had already been fired and shot Russell & Malisa Williams 15 more times at point-blank range. He had time to reload his gun while fearing for his life.

Russell and Malissa Williams were unarmed and never fired a single shot at police.

Brelo was found not guilty today.

LeBron has thoughts on the situation.

“For the city of Cleveland, let’s use our excitement or whatever passion that we have for our sport tomorrow for the game tomorrow night, bring [the passion] to the game tomorrow night, and as our team, we’ll try to do our best to give it back to them,” James told reporters Saturday, according to

“Violence is not the answer, and it’s all about trying to find a solution for good or for bad,” he added. “For me, in any case, anything that goes on in our world or in our America, the only people that we should be worried about [are] the families that’s lost loved ones. You can’t get them back. You can never get them back. We should worry about the families and how they’re doing and things of that nature.”

I wish the police would have taken LeBron’s advice before they unloaded 134 shots into the car. Violence seems to be the answer for police in many situations that involved unarmed people. The police always want protesters to be rational, calm and understanding, while failing to see that the reason they aren’t is because it is hard to be understanding of public executions happening in their streets.

How do you expect people to be rational, when irrational things are happening? Black people have asked nicely for centuries to be treated fairly & just as equals.  Nothing more, nothing less, but that doesn’t seem to be happening, so at some point you get fed up, angry and lash out.  That frankly is understandable.

I don’t want anyone to get hurt, white, black or otherwise, but it is hard to be peaceful, when the people who are supposed to protect and serve you have a license to take your life in an instant and never spend a day behind bars for it.  It is hard to be peaceful, when a Biker gang can murder a bunch of people and get treated better by police & media than black people protesting kids getting murdered by cops in the streets.

Maybe we will see better days & I get what Bron is trying to do, but when it keeps happening over and over, there is only so much people can take.

It is time for our society to start to realize the reason we are protesting is because VIOLENCE is being done to us.

Stop being violent to us and there wouldn’t be anything for us to violently protest about.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the team will not appeal the punishment handed down by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Several outlets, including the great Larry King, believe it was done to help lessen the penalty Tom Brady is still appealing.

Goodell docked the Patriots a 2016 first-round draft pick and a fourth-rounder in 2017 and fined the team $1 million. Kraft could have went Al Davis, but instead, made nice with the commissioner.

The Pacers want to play at a faster pace from here on out. That means Hibbert has to get with the program and speed up, or risk becoming the 9th man.
