Welcome to Midnight Mania!
According to a report by The Verge, Disney CEO Bob Siger announced today that Disney will offer a bunch of streaming services: ESPN +, Hulu, and the incoming Disney + for a reported $ 12.99 per month. Currently, ESPN + 4.99 per month, Hulu (with ads) is $ 5.99, and Disney + on its own is scheduled to charge subscribers $ 6.99 per month for their combination of animated movies, Marvel movies and TV shows. from 21st Century Fox as The Simpsons .
The bundle offered is cheaper overall than individual Netflix or Amazon Prime Video subscriptions.
At this point, if you are a UFC fan, subscribing to ESPN + is a must. A majority of the matches and events are on the platform, and even pay-per-view can only be purchased by subscribers. For combat fans, I have to imagine that this is a pretty appealing offer ̵
Personally, I've already taken advantage of my boyfriend's college student status to take advantage of a cheap Hulu / Spotify package, but it's hardly permanent. When the time comes to go full price, I hope this package is still an option (although the price inevitably climbs a few dollars higher).
On the other hand, I also want to admit my quarrelsome sense of hatred toward not being able to own anything. I – and I think, a good many other people – don't like the idea of just being able to subscribe to content, instead of buying it once and keeping it forever, a concept that seems to disappear. If you like Disney / Hulu / ESPN content, you're pretty much stuck for life like a fish on a reel … but it's still better than cable.
Coach Kirian Fitzgibbons of CSA gym with some really interesting thoughts on what it means to be a trainer.

"The Anatomy of Coaching" • The Coach / Athlete relationship is a VERY unique and sacred dynamic; you are a coach, friend, therapist, pastor, counselor, parent, leader, task leader, etc., etc., etc. • You must be the voice of reason when they are down and just the voice of reality when they are too high. • It is simply to teach someone the physical approach to combat. stroke, elbow, knee, wrestling, grip, rinse, foam repeat. • In the early stages of a fighter development, these physical attributes and "tool development" are the pillars of success. • When just the physical skill is not enough, "goals" and "tactics" must be identified in order for these "tools" to be successfully used against an opposing opponent with similar characteristics and skills. • Although challenging, these are actually the "easy" parts of coaching. • Teach someone to overcome losses, to push through crippling doubts, through times of overwhelming adversity. This is the hallmark of a true trainer. Being there in the tough times, without pointing your finger, no excuses and a willingness to accept guilt together with the performer is key. • What I say next will not be popular, but incredibly true. Athletes, like actors, are attracted to the limelight, the ring / cage or the playground for many reasons, but the reality is that the need to compete or stand out is driven by a mind full of landmines ready to explode on every turn. The need for acceptance, attention, self-esteem and opposition dominance is driven by ego and / or a need to prove something for reasons that are buried deep in the psyche. • If you think other wise you are unfortunately wrong, this is where most coaches fall down. • There has been a strong reminder that the struggles are 90% mental and that the really great coaches are the ones who can help the athlete navigate the "minefield" in their own minds. • This is where the battle is won and lost when all things are equal between the opponents. • Read this carefully. We fight these giants and go behind them to the ring or cage, but we must lead from the front! "The fit happens between the ears" and coaches this is our responsibility.

It would already be an interesting situation to see how Woodley reacts to his title loss, but this is certainly a fun development!
Another reason why it can be difficult to check kicks: it is easy to counteract if the opponent reads the check!

Dong Hyun Kim has been a wild man for over a decade now. Strangely, he was Welterweight as No. 7 before losing to Covington over two years ago, but he has largely been forgotten since that bout and subsequent absence.
