The PlayStation 4 has retained the top spot for sales in the United States for the seventh straight month, according to the NPD numbers for July.  Which doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, since Sony just announced that the console has passed the 10 million sold mark.

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson Destroys Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in 44 Seconds .gif

Anthony Johnson vs Lil Nog

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson continues his tirade on the UFC light heavyweight division ever since his return to the promotion this year. First it was a one sided dominant performance over top contender Phil Davis at UFC 172 where Johnson earned a unanimous decision victory. This time around it was a 44 second finish of UFC veteran and light heavyweight staple Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Johnson faced Nogueira in the co-main event at UFC on FOX 12. Johnson displayed his power early in the bout with his punches doing evident damage to Nogueira. Eventually Johnson’s power would be too much for Nogueira to handle with his punches breaking through the guard of Nogueira. It wasn’t too long until the damage took on Nogueira which resulted in the referee stopping the fight.

“The Devil’s Toy” NFB documentary on skateboarding in Montreal…

Originally posted on dirtpoormillionaires:

Fifteen minutes in length, and fiercely stylish, the film is a both a poetic exploration of the esthetics of this new sport and a barely veiled indictment of the authorities who give the kids who practice it grief, by confiscating their boards and asking them to skate indoors in this silly overcrowded arena, for example. The film, fittingly, is dedicated “to all victims of intolerance”.

Regardless of how you feel about skaters, or skate culture in general, this film is definitely worth a quarter-hour of your time. Give it a spin;

I stumbled across a link to the Indie Wrestling Archive on Twitter a few months ago and quickly got lost looking through the ever-growing collection of videos posted to the Archive’s YouTube account. There’s good, there’s bad, there’s odd and more. Do yourselves a favor and go check it out HERE!

After contacting someone with the Archive and getting the OK, I’m posting the first installment of what I hope to be a weekly feature here on Pass Me the Mike: the Indie Wrestling Archive Match of the Week.

For the first post, I’ve found a good one: The American Dragon Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) vs. Low Ki in a submission match from Jersey All Pro Wrestling’s June 7, 2002, “Smarts Only” event.

There’s no need to provide any comments for this one other than to say it kicks ass. Watch, enjoy and subscribe to the Archive on YouTube
