Silva seeks revenge against Okami
Before Anderson Silva’s current 13 straight UFC wins, he lost (controversial disqualification due to a illegal kick) to Yushin Okami, the man he will be fighting again on August 27 at UFC 134 that will be held at Brazil, and which will allow the experienced Brazilian fighter to be supported by his home crowd, and to this, he said that “it’s very emotional to think about fighting in my home, I’ve fought all over the world, not just in the UFC, but in other events. i feel that all this hard work and everything that I’ve done has all led up to this moment. It’s very nice to be fighting in your home country and get recognized by all the people around me.

Federer takes down Del Potro
As if it was an act of sporting revenge, Roger Federer defeated Martin Del Potro at the Cincinnati Open in what was probably one of the best matches of the season for the world’s third best. The Argentinean had won in their previous meeting at the 2009 US Open and after taking down Del Potro, now the Swiss is ready to face James Blake from the USA at the next round. “I expected a tough match with Juan Martin for obvious reasons, and it went better than I thought,” said Federer .

Kobe’s game is not getting better
At age 32 Kobe Bryant is not expected to play an MVP level anymore, in fact, he hasn’t played at such level in years, which is why it is surprising that the Lakers signed him on a huge contract worth more than $80 million as it is clear that the veteran shooting guard is not getting better, and this could be quite detrimental for the Los Angeles franchise, as he is the player others look up to and trust in to guide them. Even though Kobe might play every game of the upcoming seasons (his contract is due in 2014), don’t expect him to lead the Lakers to another championship, as that task is now in the hands of Andrew Bynum.

Maybin signs with Jets
After underperforming in 2 seasons with the Bills, linebacker Aaron Maybin has agreed on a deal (non guaranteed contract) with the Jets, whom might use the services of the 2009 first round draft pick as a pass-rusher when they decide to utilize formations with 5 defensive backs and will also see action as a replacement for Vernon Gholston, who was released by New York in March.
