Ronda Rousey may be in hiding following her highly-publicized knockout loss (video) to undefeated mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter -- and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's Bantamweight titleholder -- Holly Holm, but that didn't stop "Rowdy" from enjoying a slice of Turkey Day. The 28-year-old was last seen defending her 135-pound title at the UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) two weeks ago in Melbourne, Australia, where "Preacher's Daughter" beat her from pillar-to-post, eventually obtaining the upset victory over the Olympic bronze medal-winning Judoka early in round two. Despite the busted lip she received from Holm -- which looks more than patched up -- Rousey made it out to a
Tyson Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko by unanimous decision to end the Ukrainian's 9 1/2-year reign as heavyweight champion on Saturday and take his WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles. After a bruising encounter that ended with cuts near both of Klitschko's eyes, referee Tony Weeks went to the judges' scorecards. Cesar Ramos and Raul Caiz Sr. scored it 115-112 each, while Ramon Cerdan had it 116-111 in favor of the undefeated Briton (25-0, 18 KO).

Sorry Brucey, there’s a new kid on the block, and he seems to have it together a little more than you. Marvel Comics has just unveiled a sneak peek at its new comic book series The Totally Awesome Hulk, revealing the brand new character becoming the Green Guy. Take peek at the cover of The Totally Awesome Hulk issue #1, which features new character Amadeus Cho. I’m not gonna lie - this looks pretty awesome. It’s quite the change to see the Hulk in control of his own power- and sporting a Spiderman-like wit. Plus this version of Hulk has fancy hair-do, so there’s that. The character with the power of the Hulk has been none other than Marvel original Dr. Bruce Banner since the superhero's inception.
12-year-old Jordan Wooley, the Texas girl who spoke out after her teacher made her say that God is a myth, says she has been bullied and told to kill herself after media coverage of the incident. It all began when Jordan's teacher assigned a quiz asking students at West Memorial Junior High School in Katy, Texas, to label statements as “fact, assertion, or opinion.” Among the statements were “America is the most free country on Earth” and “there is a God.” After Jordan labeled the latter as a “fact,” her teacher told her to deny God or get an "F." The Katy Independent School District denied the incident ever happened and claimed no one could verify Jordan's story. But that didn't stop her from
By Andrew Osborn and Polina Devitt MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin signed a decree imposing a raft of punitive economic sanctions against Turkey on Saturday, underlining the depth of the Kremlin's anger toward Ankara four days after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane. The decree, which entered into force immediately, said charter flights from Russia to Turkey would be banned, that tour firms would be told not to sell any holidays there, and that unspecified Turkish imports would be outlawed, and Turkish firms and nationals have their economic activities halted or curbed. The gauntlet thrown down to Russia is unprecedented.
