Daniel Cormier took a barrage of blows from Anthony "Rumble" Johnson but cinched in a rear-naked choke for the UFC light heavyweight crown. Afterward, Cormier didn't mess around: "I have a message for one man: Jon Jones, get your [stuff] together! I'm waiting for you!"

Cormier: I'd beat Bader easily

Things got heated at the postfight news conference between new champ Daniel Cormier and contender Ryan Bader. Bader accused Comier of dodging him. Cormier said: "They said 'Daniel, what do you want' and I said 'I want the easiest fight in the division. I want Ryan Bader. Just give me my paycheck now.'"


Korver's absence makes huge difference

It's plain to see how much Kyle Korver has mattered to the Hawks this season. Without their sharpshooting wing, Atlanta won at a rate just slightly better than this season's Lakers (.256 win percentage).


Lacrosse goal is an absolute gem

Astros convert triple play in win

Ian Kinsler's blazing speed wasn't enough to prevent Houston from turning 3 around the horn for the first time since 2004. That's some nifty teamwork.

In among the bigs, MVP thrives

Dwight Howard is listed at 6-foot-11 and averages more than 10 rebounds a game. Stephen Curry is 6-3 and pulls down about 4 a game. So this battle of the boards was a mismatch, right? Umm ... not so fast.


Miller bests legendary Braves pitchers

Shelby Miller's 3rd-best ERA in MLB is nice. More importantly, though, Miller has given up 2 ER or fewer in 9 straight starts to open the season, something Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz never did in a Braves uniform.
