Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi isn’t all about Porgs and neat special effects. The cast put in a lot of work, in particular, a lot of martial arts training work.

Sarah looked into what some of the actors behind characters like Rey, Phasma and Finn had to go through to prepare for the film.

GSP And Rose Bring Back Martial Arts Values At UFC 217

Rose Namajunas wins at UFC 217

The title fight wins by Georges St-Pierre and Rose Namajunas at UFC 217 recently weren’t just exciting victories. They were exciting victories for those who care about the dignity of mixed martial arts.

The pair both used their wins to talk about bringing respect back to the sport. It’s arguably something that was missing during the short blip that was the Conor McGregor cut-rate pro wrestler period.

Lucky for us, Chan seems to have a plan for his next act.
