    Sean Strickland punches Uriah Hall. Photo by Chris Unger/Zuffa LLC Sean Strickland dominated Uriah Hall in a UFC middleweight match Saturday in Las Vegas. He then told the media at a post-fight press event that he thought he broke Hall's face. Strickland also said he'd "love to kill somebody" in a fight, adding: "Be a psychopath. It's fun." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. An American middleweight in the UFC said he wants "to kill somebody in a fight" after his latest win. Sean Strickland, a 30-year-old from California, made the wildly controversial comments during the post-match press conference that followed the conclusion of the UFC Fight Night event in Las Vegas. Strickland had just beaten Uriah Hall, the No.8-ranked contender in the 185-pound division, after a 25-minute fight in which he threw almost twice as many strikes as his opponent. Strickland landed 221 of his 472 shots for a 47% accuracy rate while also nailing four of his six takedown attempts. The victory was so dominant, Strickland said later that he thought he might have broken...
    Despite the urging of residents, officials in a Northern California city this week voted not to allow the display of commemorative flags — including the rainbow Pride banner — at government buildings. The Roseville City Council on Wednesday voted 4 to 1 in favor of upholding the current practice, which limits city-owned properties to flying only U.S., California and Roseville flags, in addition to POW-MIA flags at two veterans memorials. The decision comes at the height of Pride month. More than 30 residents — many adorned in rainbow attire — attended the meeting and asked the council to consider a motion that would allow them to fly the Pride flag in recognition of the LGBTQ community. The iconic rainbow flag would be flown in addition to, and not in place of, the standard flags. “There are young people in this community who every day, on their way home from school, are spat on and beat up for being LGBT,” Pastor Casey Tinnin of Loomis Basin Congregational Church said. “We know that a flag cannot change all of those things....

Joshua Roberts/Getty Images; Nathan Congleton/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Savannah Guthrie garnered attention and praise for her unwavering demeanor during her town hall interview with President Donald Trump in October. In a New York Times feature published on Saturday, Guthrie reflected on the now-viral comment she made while challenging Trump about retweeting baseless conspiracy theories. "You're the president — you're not, like, someone's crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever," Guthrie said during the town hall. The NBC News anchor and "Today" host told the Times that the "crazy uncle" analogy was something that "just came out." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on ABC on Thursday night for a rambling town hall, in lieu of a debate, opposite a town hall for President Donald Trump on NBC at the same time. Aside from many factually-challenged statements, Biden said a number of truly outlandish things. 8-year-olds should be allowed to decide they are transgender. Biden: “The idea that an 8-year-old child, a 10-year-old child, decides, you know, I want to be transgender, that’s what I think I’d like to be, it’d make my life a lot easier — there should be zero discrimination.” (What happens when the 8-year-olds hit puberty?) Police should shoot criminals in the leg. Biden: “You can ban choke holds, but beyond that, you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. De-escalate. So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.” (Are police shooting “anybody”? Shooting unarmed people, even criminals, is usually a crime.) Gather all of the governors “in a room.” Biden: “You can go to every governor and get them all...
    A race row broke out among New York City Hall staffers last month, 11 minutes before mayor Bill de Blasio was set to give his daily coronavirus briefing with a nod to the 100th anniversary of woman's suffrage included. A series of leaked emails obtained by the New York Post show that the row exploded over the wording of talking points prepared for the mayor after they were sent to staffers ahead of the briefing on August 26. The briefing was to include a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment to the U.S. constitution, which prohibited states and the federal government from denying citizens the right to vote based on sex. One of the talking points included in the communication was to acknowledge 'not all women could exercise that right' to vote because of segregation and other laws, adding 'Women of color excluded – fought for decades for equal access.' But at 9:49 a.m. and 11 minutes before de Blasio's briefing was scheduled to start, a row in the email chain kicked off. A race row broke...
    Donald Trump lied, obfuscated, and refused to answer questions from undecided voters at an ABC News town hall in Pennsylvania. Donald Trump was peppered with questions on Tuesday night from a series of undecided voters in the critical swing state of Pennsylvania. In the hourlong event, Trump lied about his record, refused to take responsibility for the problems the country faces under his watch, and often ignored the questions the voters asked him altogether, resulting in a bumbling performance. Here are the seven most ridiculous comments Trump made during the town hall event Tuesday night, which was hosted by ABC News.

    The infamous Hall Brawl elimination finally worked its way into The Challenge: Total Madness on Episode 15. The double-elimination pitted friends-turned-enemies Jenny West against Dee Nguyen and Rogan O’Conner against Nelson Thomas. Jenny absolutely dominated Dee in the elimination, even pushing her co-star out of the hallway onto her side before ringing her bell for the second time. The matchup seemed like it was going to be a decent fight but ended up being an embarrassment for the Australian. Since MTV has heavily edited Dee out of Total Madness episodes since she was fired recently, fellow cast member Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio is revealing what went down behind the scenes. The Challenge champion took to Instagram Live to discuss the episode, and a partial recording of the video was saved to fan account The Challenge Overdose. According to Johnny, Dee said “I’m gonna hurt you” to Jenny before she was even voted down into Purgatory. She also allegedly made comments along the lines of “I’m not gonna treat you like a friend, I’m gonna go in there… I’m gonna punish you.”...
    NEW YORK (AP) — A week after a “defund the police” protest became a full-blown occupation outside City Hall, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday he has a plan for the New York City police department budget to be slashed by $1 billion. The mayor, a Democrat, declined to discuss the sources of what he called “savings” for the nation’s largest police department, saying at a news briefing that the cuts are still being negotiated with the City Council. But he said spending on capital projects would be reduced by $500 million and there could be changes to the department’s role in policing schools. Money would be deferred to the city’s chronically underfunded public housing system and to youth programs, de Blasio said. “The NYPD did a hell a good job in saying, ’Ok, here’s a bunch of things we could do while still keeping this city safe,” he said. “We need to redistribute revenue to communities that need it the most. We know our young people are hurting.” The budget talks come as hundreds of demonstrators have spent the...
    The mayor of St. Louis issued an apology after revealing the personal information of her constituents during a broadcast. Mayor Lyda Krewson, who removed the broadcast conducted over social media in which she read aloud the names and home addresses of citizens who called for defunding the police, is now facing pressure to resign. "In an effort to be transparent and accessible to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, for more than three months now, I have been doing tri-weekly community updates on Facebook. Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today," Krewson said in a statement. "While this is public information, I did not intend to cause distress or harm to anyone. The post has been removed." The Washington Examiner received a video of the part of Krewson's online address in which she shared the names and addresses of her constituents. Near the end of her briefing, Krewson's spokesman Jacob Long read a question from...
    The occupation of City Hall Park by activists has been growing — as 400 demonstrators slept there overnight Wednesday into Thursday, organizers said. That’s roughly four times the number of people there on Tuesday night. Many go home after the “sleepover,” but on Thursday afternoon, there were still about 250 “Occupy City Hall” protesters — some in lawn chairs and sleeping bags, surrounded by a myriad of cardboard signs reading “Defund Police,” “Black Lives Matter” and “I Can’t Breathe” — at City Hall Park and on the adjacent sidewalks throughout the day. The activists have vowed to camp out through June 30, the day before the City Council’s deadline to approve the 2021 fiscal-year budget. “We’re determined to fight and not to give up,” said one demonstrator, Winsome Pendergrass, 62, of Brownsville, Brooklyn, explaining that she’s “here for the long haul until we get what we’re demanding.” “The billion dollars we are calling for, it can be shared equally between housing and education and health care — and for the people in the gay community who are being marginalized and...

    Getty Jerry Jones The Dallas Cowboys‘ 2020 exhibition lid-lifter is officially kaput. The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Thursday it has postponed the Hall of Fame Game between the Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers due to ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The contest, scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 6, now will take place on Aug. 5, 2021, at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

    How have we gotten to a point in Los Angeles where the arrest of a City Councilman is not just unsurprising, but anti-climactic? Councilman Jose Huizar, once a political rising star, crashed and burned Tuesday morning when he was arrested on a charge of federal racketeering, accused of running “a criminal enterprise that used his powerful position at City Hall to solicit and accept lucrative bribes and other financial benefits to enrich himself and his close associates.” Ho-hum and what else is new, right? If you’re keeping score at home, this makes two fallen heroes in just three moths at City Hall. Councilman Mitch Englander has already agreed to plead guilty to corruption charges after being plied with cash and other favors that included a trip to Vegas, where he filled his pockets and ruined his name. Can you imagine an easier job than being a federal investigator assigned to L.A. City Hall, where a pay-to-play culture has been entrenched for years? I mean, you don’t even have to bait the hook to reel in the lunkers, left and...
    Mark McGwire talked about his 70th homer in the MLB | Paul Nordmann / . Historic Cardinals player Mark McGwire said the ball for his 70th home run should be in the MLB Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Recall that many of the slugger’s accomplishments have been questioned by steroid use in his stellar years. “It should be in the Hall of Fame, I have no doubts about it,” McGwire told TMZ Sports portal. Mark McGwire Says 70th Home Run Ball Belongs In Hall Of Fame https://t.co/jpPmptv36E – TMZ (@TMZ) June 23, 2020 The ball is currently owned by the writer, Todd McFarlane, who bought it for more than three million dollars, months after McGwire gave his iconic home run. McFarlane has stated on several occasions that he does not plan to sell it, so even if the Hall of Fame decided to place it in their showcases, that would not be possible. It is speculated that the value of the ball dropped considerably after Barry Bonds topped McGwire’s 70 home runs.
    President Donald Trump mocked Joe Biden’s campaign Friday by posting a picture of a nearly empty hall and stating that the former Vice President’s ‘rally’ had ‘zero enthusiasm’. Trump shared a picture on Twitter of the Democratic candidate’s campaign event in Philadelphia earlier on Friday in which social distancing measures were taken to space out attendees. ‘Joe Biden’s rally. ZERO enthusiasm!’ he wrote. Trump’s criticism came as crowds gathered - both fans and protesters - ahead of his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which will take place Saturday. His campaign has claimed they are preparing for overflow crowds as they expect for the 19,000-plus seat BOK Center to be filled. President Trump tore into his rival, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, on Twitter on Thursday sharing this tweet of his socially distanced campaign event and claiming that it was empty because there was 'zero enthusiasm' for the former Vice President's 'rally' Trump supporters have been lined up and camped out as the arena only holds 19,000 people and the president claimed there were more than one million requested tickets.
