Anthony Pettis was quickly granted his wish to fight featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Dana White confirmed that the two will meet on August 3rd of this year for the UFC Featherweight Championship. So where does this leave Frankie Edgar who has decided that he will not rejoin the ranks of the UFC’s Lightweights.
The UFC offered Josh Barnett a contract, but Barnetts manager says they rejected the offer. When asked was it a money issue, Barnett’s manager was quoted as saying “The compensation part of the contract was fine, we didn’t even counter it. It was another particular that kept it from happening”. It makes it wonder if it could be some type of clause that deals with PED’s.
Speaking of PEDS. I wonder if Michael Bisping was aware that his opponent Vitor Belfort had the green light on taking TRT prior to their bout last month. Well he did, and it’s just another example of how uneven the UFC’s playing field is becoming.
On the third episode of TUF 17, Urijah Hall scored a devastating knockout over his opponent, one that I’m sure everyone in that house will remember. Furthermore he propelled Team Sonnen to 2-0, and once again in control of the next pick.
Kilo Kish is proud to share her long-awaited multimedia project, K+ via her website kilokish.com. K+ functions not only as a mixtape but also as a living document of the collaborative process of making music. As Kish says “This is in an attempt to purposely highlight our imperfections and reject the finality of ‘the finished product’. We are all always working and making changes and my project represents this elementary idea.” To bring this concept to life, Kish designed a physical space filled with notes, drafts, and inspirations from the creative process. Kish also has shared a short video here that synthesizes her unique artistic vision and functions as an introduction to the world of K+. The end result is the carefully curated K+ mixtape which includes contributions from over 25 artists including Earl Sweatshirt, Star Slinger, Childish Gambino, CRONOS, SBTRKT, A$AP Ferg, The Internet, Flatbush Zombies, Nick Hook, Vince Staples, and more.

Small, family-owned online adult DVD store www.AdultWoot.com, which offers the latest adult movies all for under $5 is being bullied and threatened by online powerhouse giant Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) claiming trademark infringement.
“Woot” (Want One Of Those) is a widely used term and acronym used by online sites as well as incorporated into everyday conversations.
Amazon.com retained lawyers from Texas to secretly take down the AdultWoot.com site in essence overnight, by serving its hosting provider only. No one within The Richard Group had sought out the owner of the site.
AdultWoot.com is a Mom and Pop start up to provide affordable adult content to those who have been dramatically affected by the recession, conceptualized as a way for Ms. May to continue to provide for her children while struggling with the economy. “I fear that without my online business and loyal customers, income will be taken away from me and my children. Adult businesses are real people too, people like you and I who need to provide for our families.”
Ms. May has contacted the team of lawyers representing Amazon.com directly, as she cannot afford to go to battle with the mega-corporation. Shockingly, she has yet to receive a response. She’d like the consumer public to understand that the two sites are completely different and do not share similar products. An online search for “cheap adult DVDs” is redirected to “Cheap Adult DVDs, Daily XXX Deals and Porn DVD” which all re-link directly to the AdultWoot.com site, giving connoisseurs of adult product the exact title they’re looking for.
An online search of “woot” does not pull up AdultWoot.com and Ms. May wonders why, with the plethora other companies who operate with the word ‘woot’ in their name, how Amazon isn’t trying to vigorously shut them down as well, especially when domain names of acronyms, whole categories of products, services and common expressions are ineligible for trademark protection.
