One thing that the MMA, Basketball and Tennis community have in common, they all had upsets from their top performers for this weekend.



Starting off with the NBA – the 24-game winning streak of the Golden State Warriors finally got halted by an unlikely foe – the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Warriors gave everything they can but the fatigue came from having a schedule with back-to-back games.

With the statement sent out by the Warriors to the league, most fans are now looking at the record set by the 96′ Bulls with a 2 decade long record of 72 wins and 10 losses.

The MMA world has crowned two new champions – Luke Rockhold as the UFC Middlewight Champion and Conor McGregor becoming the UFC Featherweight Champions.

Luke Rockhold was coming from a huge odds coming to his match as Chris Weidman looking like the invincible fighter that took down Anderson Silva — twice!

Despite that, Rockhold made Weidman look like a desperate man looking for answers for his well prepared game plan and finished the job at the 3:12 mark of the 4th round.

In the co-main event, Conor McGregor took only 13 seconds to dethrone another fighter that seemed invincible in the eyes of all – Jose Aldo.

Even if the Tennis season is just on a break, the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) had the eyes of tennis fans glued as they saw the the most documented rivalry in tennis unfold as Nadal prevails over Federer once again.

The IPTL league has been glorified as the biggest exhibition match of Tennis – but for the two rivals, it didn’t seem like one.

Both tennis players went back and fourth and as per the IPTL rules – they will only play one set.

The match went to a tie breaker after both players were tied at 5-5. Nadal proved too much and outlasted the 17-time grand slam champion – Roger Federer.
