One man involved reportedly laid unconscious in the pool of his own blood for about 15 minutes. He was taken to hospital for treatment and was released, police said.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, who can bench press a Volkswagen using only his neck, returned to Monday Night RAW last night (June 17, 2013) to remind CM Punk why he's "The Beast Incarnate." His days inside the Octagon are over, but Lesnar's days inside the weight room, clearly, are not.
The good news is, he blows lightly. After all, "HD" doesn't want to upset those pesky sinuses, aggravated by a punch to the eye during his TKO loss to Shawn Jordan at the UFC 161 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (June 15, 2013) at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (results here).

-- UFC featherweight contender Cub Swanson reacts to the news that “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Sung will replace the injured Anthony Pettis against Jose Aldo at UFC 163 on Aug. 3, 2013. Swanson, who is currently riding a four-fight win-streak, is clearly not impressed the organization chose to replace Pettis with Jung and not himself. It’s possible that Swanson’s eight-second knockout loss to “Scarface” in 2009 was part of the reason he didn’t get the fight, but regardless, the 29-year-old will have the chance to make his case for a shot at the belt when he meets Dennis Siver at UFC 162 next month.

UFC welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, who was "pissed off" by his "idiot" director on the set of his latest NOS commercial (watch it here), still has nothing to smile about while pimping the company's popular energy drink. Apparently not even a hot redhead was able to coax a reaction from the stone-faced Canadian, which means he's unlikely to be rattled by John Hendricks epic beard this October.
