    This is the most important post you’ll ever read. Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers.. Yet this is only four of our many transgressions. The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good works because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left his throne in heaven and came to this earth. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake. Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’.. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace .. Except gifts can be either accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response; Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him, and through gratitude in the sacrifice of his son, repent (turn away) from your old way of life. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward ( Romans 10:9 ). Do these things, and you will be saved. If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin, but instead desires to obey his word. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife. You’ve been informed; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you will be for ETERNITY.. Meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make; And all of us here, whether believer or atheist, know deep down that every last word here is true. Jesus Christ awaits YOU this very moment. Do not put off surrendering your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed ... and as it is written ( Hebrews 9 : 27 ); ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’.

    Facts people see some of these records and don't realize the young kids with 7-0 9-1 8-0 type records usually start off in Cage Warriors or LFA or another smaller pro promotion. These were beast ametuers that were scouted properly and belong here whether 2-0 5-2 or whatever else

    It makes ZERO SENSE that a FIGHTER can simply expose their neck/back of their head, the most VULNERABLE points on the human body, and their opponent has to avoid hitting them or will get a DQ or lose a point... such a DIRTY tactic!!

  83. Ariel Plaza

    Lugo's corner may be some of the best trash talking/coaching I've heard in a while. They never lie to their boy, and nearly always call out their advice in a way that gets under Bell's skin.

    Is it just me or did BORGA VS NOGUEIRA look like a one sided fight, BORGA did not appear to be a fighter at all she didn't do much at all, she didn't throw hardly any punches she was very slow and she just did not appear to be in the fight at all. She didn't even look like a pro fighter in my opinion she looked like a amateur fighter. IDK maybe i reading into this too much but damn she just looked very amateur like.
