Boxing to MMA: Jake Paul To Dana White, “I Will Embarrass the Entire UFC.”

Published

on

The world of boxing is going crazy as Jake Paul has taken things a level up by beating Tyron Woodley and calling out Dana White to allow his fighters a chance to go against Jake Paul. As per Paul, “I will embarrass them too.”

Jake Paul Defeats Tyron Woodley Again

Tyron Woodley and Jake Paul had their rematch on the 18th of December, and the hype was real. Although Jake was initially set to go against Tommy Fury, Fury couldn’t make the fight on account of having a broken rib and a chest infection, as per his post on his social media accounts.

Jake Paul, who was still being met with scrutiny over his 4-fight career, managed to put away all doubts as he knocked out Tyron Woodley. What really got everyone excited was the fact that Jake managed to score a knockout while putting a $500,000 bounty on his own head.

This was something that he talked about in a conversation with Ariel Hawani on the latter’s podcast, The MMA Hour, stating that people had always doubted his ability and went so far as to spread fake rumors. “There are rumors going around that I don’t let my fighters knock me out contractually”, implying that as a free-agent boxer, Jake was fixing fights.

Paul went on to explain that not only was it impossible to do something illegal this big and get away with it, but he also offered Tyron Woodley an additional $500,000 if the latter could knock Jake out.

The YouTuber-turned boxer managed to pile up Tyron Woodley yet again on his 4 win streak. Jake managed to knock Tyron out at the beginning of the sixth round with an overhand right that was arguably in the process of being set up from the very start of the fight. All showboating aside, while the fight might have seemed boring to veteran boxing fans, it was still one of the highest-selling fights of the year that brought a ton of attention to the ring.

UFC’s Dana White vs Jake Paul

The UFC’s president, one of the most well-known promoters in the fight business around the world, Dana White has often been associated with Jake Paul even though White has often expressed he finds it abhorrent.

Although there’s much more to it now, the feud between the two began when Jake Paul started questioning the UFC’s contracts or more specifically, highlighting the fighter pay that Dana hands out to even his best fighters. Jake, along with his brother Logan, started garnering attention as they talked about all the ways Dana White has ‘exploited’ his fighters and paid them nothing at all in return.

While Dana has been addressing the public concern for fighter pays in his own way, he regularly maintains that ‘these guys [fighters] don’t want you [the press] to know what they make.’

It’s true that Dana also recently busted open Oscar De La Hoya’s claims of offering more money than Dana White to his fighters by revealing how little De La Hoya paid them in comparison himself.

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind about Jake Paul’s capability of garnering attention on social media and getting people focused on things he wants them to see. And after knocking Tyron out, Jake wants other UFC fighters to pick up boxing gloves and face him in the ring.

“I just knocked out a five-time UFC champion and embarrassed your whole company,” Paul said. “And please, please let me get Kamaru Usman, please let me get Diaz, please let me get Masvidal, please let me get McGregor. Because I’m gonna embarrass them, too. I promise you that, Dana. I promise you that.”

Jake Paul has declared he’ll be going on a vacation after this fight and will come back later to go over the 5-fight bucket list that also includes the world champion Canelo and the UFC president, Dana White himself.

United Africa Organization and 5,315 hopeful immigrants sue Biden administration

Published

on

On Tuesday, Chicago-based United Africa Organization and over five thousand Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery applicants filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration in the District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, challenging the unlawful withholding of Diversity Visas. (Complaint available upon request.)
As part of their legal challenge, Plaintiffs attack the lawfulness Secretary Antony Blinken’s policy changes implemented through a November 2021 cable with the subject line, “Recalibration of Consular Services Prioritization at Posts Abroad.”
Immigrant plaintiffs all entered the FY-2022 lottery in late 2020 and were selected in May 2021 from a pool of millions of entries through a computer-generated random drawing. They should each be eligible 55,000 visas that should be issued in FY-2022 (between October 1, 2021 and September 20, 2022).[1] Immigrant plaintiffs followed the rules and submitted their applications. They made plans to build a new life in America. Yet, the Biden administration, still beholden to restrictive immigration policies adopted during the Trump administration, stands in their way.
Modernly, the Diversity Visa lottery program is responsible for the largest percentage of African and Black immigration to the United States. Yet, according to the CATO Institute, Africans Face Steepest Decline in Immigrant Visas under Biden.
Fasika Alem, Programs Director of United African Organization, said:
“The administration’s decision to make the DV lottery program a low priority for visa issuances is decreasing African immigration to the U.S, and that outcome is not consistent with the country’s values.”
Alexandra George, Chicago-based co-counsel for Plaintiffs, said:
“President Biden campaigned on promises to support the DV lottery, but the administration’s own policies are the biggest hurdle for African winners. These broken promises harm thousands of real people and tarnish Biden’s legacy.”
Jana Al-Akhras, co-counsel for Plaintiffs, said:
“The DV Program, its selectees, and its recipients are a vital aspect of our country’s immigration process — the importance of which cannot be overstated. The Biden Administration’s attempt to undermine this program harms our nation and runs contrary to the express will of Congress. We urge the Biden Administration to consider the harm that incurs as a result of their deprioritzation of these very worthy applicants.”

Published

on

American-based Ghanaian Comedian and Actor, Michael Blackson and his fiancée, Rada have revealed they have made some special arrangements in their relationship.

The couple made an appearance on the Shade Room and revealed that they have both agreed to allow Michael have one “sidechick” every month.

In a conversation with Thembi from the Shade Room, Rada explained why she’s allowed Michael to have a sidechick every month.

“The reason why is I’ve been in a long term relationship and I’ve said it before, you having sex with the same individual for years, it gets boring and I need some excitement in the bedroom,” Rada said.

When asked if Michael also allows Rada to have a side piece, he responded;

“I mean, she’s allowed to have any female she wants and not a man because we don’t need another penis in the relationship.”

Watch rest of their conversation below;

Moneybagg Yo And Kodak Black Team Up For Heartfelt New Single/Video “Rocky Road”

Published

on

Photo Credit: “Bodi” aka Botti Denton

Today, Memphis superstar Moneybagg Yo drops “Rocky Road,” a heartfelt, Kodak Black-assisted new single that affirms the pair’s status as the faces of modern, complex street rap. “Rocky Road” also arrives with an evocative video and is now available at all digital retailers via CMG/N-less Entertainment/Interscope Records. With this release, Bagg is featured on the cover of New Music Daily on Apple Music Listen HERE.

Cruising over emotive keys, Kodak kicks things off with a declaration of loyalty: “Tryna get to my hoe but the Perkys got me froze / Been doing my baby momma wrong and leaving her at home / I cannot leave you on your own, we made this child together.” For his part,Moneybagg injects memories of the hustle and damaged romance: “Out there standing by the pole, selling dope to buy some clothes / Cause I knew that attract the hoes, until one left my heart so cold / I just didn’t know no better made me hard on the next forever.” Soul-baring yet of the streets, “Rocky Road” is Moneybagg and Kodak at their best.

The video also dwells in that zone. Equal parts gritty, evocative, thoughtful, and real, the Young Chang-directed clip spins a familiar narrative as a man who’s already balancing life’s complexities finds himself at a crossroads: how to respond to another man’s reckless violence. The two rappers bear witness, occupying a perspective both within the scene and adjacent enough to have eyes on the bigger picture. It’s a space Bagg’s held down for a long time now. Watch HERE.

As a pioneer of his craft the Memphis native has been able to garner a cult fan base and prove his artistry as one of the best to do it. After sharing his album Time Served, Bagg continued to prove his aptitude and magnetism with the release of his fourth studio record, A Gangsta’s Pain, which debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The critically acclaimed project features notable features with the likes of Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Future, and Jhené Aiko to name a few and was accredited “Best of 2021” by several media outlets including The New York Times, NPR, Billboard, Fader, Rolling Stone, Complex. In addition to his album going No. 1 he also topped the Urban Radio chart four times consecutively with “Said Sum” “Time Today” and “Wockesha,” and, “Scorpio.” A Gangsta’s Pain was the fourth highest selling rap album of the year and ultimately led to his performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a live performance on the BET Awards and several award nominations (BET Hip Hop Award, MTV VMA, iHeartRadio Award, etc.) As a man on the go Moneybagg Yo also starred in a Nike Commercial, helped develop artists on his own label, Bread Gang, and continues to explore several business ventures with his latest being Vior Water. In 2022 the Certified Speaker will maintain his unbreakable hot streak and continue to immerse himself in various projects. With “Rocky Road” at his back, Moneybagg Yo is all set to continue his trend of leveling up with each month.
