Poirier Beats McGregor, Trump Gets a Huge Standing Ovation at UFC 264

Poirier Beats McGregor, Trump Enters Arena To Chant Of “USA! USA! USA!”

Published

The UFC had another huge event, UFC 264, at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena in fabulous Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White’s leadership, and refusal to bow to the woke mob has taken the UFC into the mainstream, and made it the most watched sport in the world.

It also helps to have spectacular athletes who are smart enough to lay off of politics and stick to their sport.

Last night, Diamond Dustin Poirier defeated The Notorious Conor McGregor in a first round TKO. Conor snapped his tibia after throwing a punch and twisting his leg at an awkward angle. Poirier speculated that McGregor had cracked his tibia earlier during the round, and the missed punch just compounded the damage.

McGregor denied that, and screamed “This is not over!”

Poirier, all class, wished his opponent a speedy recovery, and that he safely return to his ‘beautiful family’. He gave a shout out to 17 year-old Peyton Murphy, from his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana, who is battling a rare form of bone cancer. Poirier, through his charity, has raised over $30,000 to fund Murphy’s treatment, and flew him to see him fight at UFC 264. Calling Murphy, ‘the real fighter’ here, Poirier showed that he is a good man and deserved his win.

Unfortunately McGregor did not, and kept trash talking Poirier’s wife, and threatened to kill him in the ring.

God sure shut him by breaking his leg and delivering the win to the Diamond.

Gilbert Burns of Brazil defeated Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in a not-so-exciting co-main event fight. ‘Suga’ Sean O’Malley defeated an insanely tough Kris Moutinho, who just wouldn’t stop coming at him.  Tai Tuivasa wowed the crowd when he knocked out former NFL standout Greg Hardy with one punch, and then made them laugh when he drank beer out of a shoe — the famous Shoeiy!

And the fight of the night was Irene Aldana, who defeated Yana Kunitskaya in spectacular fashion!

There was a star-studded group of celebrities in attendance, including 45 himself, President Donald Trump, who received a standing ovation as he entered the building with his friend Dana White, and was serenaded by the crowd chanting “USA! USA! USA!”

God, I love the UFC!!!

Former Speaker of the Arizona House and current Arizona State Senator JD Mesnard gives his update and analysis of the ongoing Arizona audit saga. Check out the video below:

About JD Mesnard:

J.D. Mesnard is a state senator in the Arizona Senate, serving Legislative District 17 (Chandler, Gilbert, and Sun Lakes). He was elected to the Senate on November 6, 2018, after serving eight years in the Arizona House of Representatives, including as Speaker of the House during his final term.

He also holds two masters degrees, one in Business and the other in Public Administration—exemplifying his interest in both the public and private sectors.

Your To-Do List: Unforeseen Events Will Arise

No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling tasks, unexpected obligations and interruptions arise that could throw us off our plan.

Published

on

Each day you compose your to-do list and begin proceeding merrily down it, do you take into account what is likely to occur in the course of a day? No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling the tasks, invariably, unexpected obligations, interruptions, and other developments arise that are going to throw us off our plan.

How do you react when you are humming along and, suddenly, you get an assignment from out of left field? Perhaps your boss has asked you to jump on something immediately. Maybe a client calls. Maybe something gets returned to you that you felt was complete.

If you are like most professionals, you immediately will become flustered. The intrusion on your time and your progress means that you are not going to accomplish all that you set out to before the end of the day. Is there a way to proceed and still feel good about all that you accomplish?

A Supplemental To-do List

I believe there is, and it involves making a miniature, supplemental to-do list that accurately and completely encapsulates the new task you now need to handle.

Why create this supplemental to-do list? It gives you focus and direction, reduces anxiety, and increases the probability that you will remain buoyant at the time of its completion and be able to turn back to what you were doing before the task was assigned.

If you don’t compose such a list, and simply plow headlong into the unexpected challenge that has come your way, you might not proceed effectively, and you might never get back to the to-do list on which you were working.

Unforeseen tasks that arise represent more than intrusions on our time; they represent intrusions on our mental and emotional state of being. Some people are naturally good at handling unexpected situations and often work as public servants, such as police officers and firefighters, or in health care, as nurses and orderlies.

Most of us, however, are not wired like this. Interruptions and intrusions take us off the path that we wanted to follow, and tend to be at least momentarily upsetting. Hereafter, when executing the items on your to-do list, proceed with the mindset that there will be an interruption of some sort. You don’t know when it is coming or how large it will be, but it will pull you off course.

Equanimity Reigns

The key question for you is: Can you develop the capacity to maintain balance and equanimity in the face of such disruptions? The good news is that you can, and it all starts with acknowledging that the situation is likely to happen, devising a supplemental checklist to handle the new task, and as deftly as possible, returning to what you were doing.
