    While Go Pro Camera's have been wildly successfully over the past handful of years, many were unsure of their choice of going public on the New York Stock Exchange. Mainly because of the uncertainty surrounding the companies ability to sustain such large levels of growth in the future and whether or not sophisticated investors would be interested in investing in the company. The most unfortunate thing for my bank account was that I failed to invest in Go Pro once the company went public.For those of you who don't follow the stock market, Go Pro Cameras has been on an uphill climb ever…

    Fallon Fox and Cris Cyborg have something in common. No, not that, Mr. Funny Pants, they both want to fight Ronda Rousey, despite not having a contract with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). We know why the Brazilian is miffed at "Rowdy" (click here if you don't), but why is the transgender bantamweight up in arms? This video might have something to do with it. Fox got wind of Rousey's "unfair" scouting report and has politely asked the "ignorant" 135-pound champ (via Facebook) to stop making "ridiculous" arguments from last year about manly bones and even manlier structures. "First, I…

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is probably glad it got rid of Thiago Silva when it did (the second time), as his ex-wife, Thaysa Kamiji, continues to release videos that paint the light heavyweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in a not-so-flattering light. This latest offering shows Silva cocking his gun while Kamiji tries to reason with him (via MMA Fighting): Silva: I have (the gun) in my pocket. I didn't do anything. Kamiji: You're holding it. For the love of God. Kamiji: Why are you doing this? Give me the gun. Silva: Okay, I will give you the gun. Stop. Stop. Police are here.

Mixed martial arts (MMA) ... she is a cruel mistress. Gomi (35-10, 1 NC) is now 4-5 inside the Octagon, following a technical knockout loss to undefeated division standout Myles Jury at the UFC Fight Night 52 event on Fight Pass (results), which took place on Sat.

    Much of the focus in climbing media is centered around the great feats of talented athletes. We throw around speeds, grades and the phrase “free-climbing” to talk about triumphs in the community. What we don’t always hear as much about, however, are all of the other accomplishments rock climbers make. Being a climber means more than possessing killer strength and solid technique. For many, it also means a big heart and giving back to the community.
