Quick Hits

The Main Event
WHAT?
Conor McGregor owns the UFC. Well, not legally.

WHAT ELSE?
On Tuesday, the UFC held their UFC 205 presser, which basically turned in to the Conor McGregor show. The star sat right in front, displaying his shiny gold belt, while all attention was focused right on him.

UFC President Dana White was asked how much McGregor was worth of the UFC's recent $4.2 Billion evaluation, to which McGregor answered $4.2 Billion; the fans loved it. Fighters not fighting McGregor took the few moments that weren't about McGregor to trash-talk McGregor. One fan even took McGregor's opponent, Eddie Alvarez down a notch; the fans went apeshit.

THOUGHTS?
If the UFC's interim featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, wants out of the league because he's not "here to be an employee of McGregor," you know there's some real favoritism there.

Good Sport
Not Natural
It wasn't a natural cycle (hitting in order), but Pittsburgh Pirates infielder John Jaso's cycle was still inhuman. Thanks to the ball getting stuck between the wall in the 7th, Jaso completed the very first cycle (hitting a single, double, triple, and home run in one game) in PNC Park history.

Bad Sport
Two Of A Kind
David Beckham spent £20,000 on plastic surgery to... WAIT! What do you mean that's not David Beckham?!?! But he looks just like him! Turns out, Jack Johnson (not Bubble Toes) spent a ridiculous amount to look like David Beckham, which he doesn't at all. Don't worry, he's not done. (Bonus Jack Johnson/Ben Stiller music video to wipe this horrible look-a-like from your memory)
