David Ortiz Stabbed Outside Taco Bell During Argument Over Burrito

empire-sports-david-ortiz-stabbed-taco-bell-argument-burritoBOSTON, MA—

The Boston Red Sox have announced that slugger David Ortiz may miss several games after being stabbed outside a downtown Boston Taco Bell during an argument over a burrito.

According to a police report, “Big Papi” was forcibly removed from the establishment after attempting to eat food that belonged to another customer. A scuffle ensued and employees intervened but the confrontation spilled outside where the men briefly exchanged blows before Ortiz was knifed in the stomach. His assailant disappeared on foot and remains at large.

“He was out of money but still wanted more food,” said manager Willie Prader. “When we refused, he grabbed a burrito off another gentleman’s table and made a dash for the exit. The other guy tackled Mr. Ortiz and the two men wrestled on the floor before being separated and escorted outside.”

Though not life threatening, Ortiz’s wound will likely require several weeks of rehab.

The incident is particularly unfortunate since Ortiz had recently dropped 20 pounds off his notoriously gargantuan frame, bringing him down to around 250. He has been on a strict diet under doctor supervision for several months but apparently fell off the wagon and headed downtown for some long overdue binge eating.

“He was asked to leave an all-you-can-eat Ponderosa earlier in the evening,” said Officer Gary Goldsmith. “Shortly thereafter, a man matching Mr. Ortiz’s description was spotted running from a convenience store after stealing a six pack of beer and fistful of Slim Jims, but a positive identification of the suspect has not been made.”

Ortiz spent much of the off-season having his colon periodically blown out as part of an experimental procedure designed to reduce his excessively ravenous appetite. Illegal in the United States, Ortiz returned to his native Dominican Republic to receive the controversial treatments, and appeared to be responding well. This relapse, however, leaves his fortunes, and those of the Red Sox, in serious doubt.

Kanye West Challenges Anderson Silva To MMA Fight

empire-sports-kanye-west-anderson-silva-mma-match-challenge-fightLos Angeles, California—

In a shocking move by the once popular & now apparently insane R&B artist Kayne West, he has openly challenged Anderson Silva to an MMA fight. We are not sure what prompted this decision but we can only guess that it has a lot to do with Mr. West’s 15 minutes of fame quickly running out and his diminishing mental faculties. The pressure from being married to a reality TV skank and being hated by 94.6% of the American public can put a lot of mental stress on a weak minded guy like Kanye.

Anderson Silva is still recovering from an awful leg injury in his rematch with Chris Weidman. Silva’s lower leg basically fell off and he was been rehabbing ever since the surgery that followed. We talked to Silva via skype yesterday and asked if he was seriously considering taking the fight. “My leg has only recovered about 60% but since we are talking about a guy like West who is basically a little b*itch that holds a mic for living, I think I will take the fight”, Silva said smiling. Anderson went on to say he would donate his pay from the fight to a charity that can help prevent kids from growing up into a mega douche bag like Kayne West. “American children have been subjected to Kanye West and his in-law reality TV family for too long. Maybe this fight can raise some awareness of the growing problem of people like Kanye and company getting public attention that allows them to suck the intelligence right out of the American people”, Silva stated.

If Dana White does actually make this fight happen it could be the biggest UFC pay per view ever. The crossover between pop culture and MMA would generate a ton of media coverage. And even though Silva would basically be fighting one good leg I believe the end result would be a chalk outline of Kanye in the Octagon. I’m not talking about metaphorically dead, I mean he would not be alive anymore in reality. You see Kanye West is a tough guy when he is berating TMZ type reporters or snatching a mic from a 98 pound Taylor Swift. But it would be a different story when he is locked inside a cage with maybe the greatest fighter in the history of this planet. Hopefully this fight does happen soon. I would love to see it and the economy would get a boost from the PPV sales. Most importantly the viewing public would get a morale boost from seeing a terrible person punched and choked into oblivion.

Miesha Tate Chokes Taylor Swift In Backstage Altercation

empire-sports-miesha-tate-chokes-taylor-swift-jabbawockeez-dance-concert-vegas-luxorMiesha Tate made new fans on Saturday evening as she showed up at a JABBAWOCKEEZ performance at the Luxor Las Vegas and made her way on stage, putting her dance moves on display.

But what happened after the show may gain her a whole new fanbase and, possibly, a new list of enemies.

It was reported today that one Taylor Swift also happened to have been at the same show and was getting, according to several sources, loud and obnoxious backstage shortly after the JABBAWOCKEEZ had finished their performance.

Swift apparently had no clue who Tate was or that she was a professional fighter as several eye-witnesses reported the young pop star was getting more than a little wordy with the UFC veteran.

“I don’t know if Taylor was drunk or what but I looked over and she was in Miesha’s face,” said Branden Bishop, a bartender at the Luxor.  “That’s about the time Miesha grabbed Taylor’s neck.  I was thinking that Taylor was about to get her ass kicked but Miesha was just trying to get her out of her face.”

Several crew members for the JABBAWOCKEEZ grabbed Swift and helped calm her down.

“We have no idea why Taylor was so upset at Miesha or if she was just drunk or something,” said one crew member. “But we had to step in because that’s not a battle she would have won.”

“The whole thing is crazy,” said Kevin “KB” Brewer of the JABBAWOCKEEZ. “Because Taylor Swift seems like the most innocent and sweet person on the planet but she looked liked she was possessed.”

Ronda Rousey Threatens To Give UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste Black Eye

empire-sports-ronda-rousey-arianny-celeste-black-eye-fight-ufc

Recently, the MMA world has been abuzz from harsh words being volleyed by two well-known names in the UFC.  No, this isn’t banter between two fighters trash-talking before an upcoming fight,  this war of words is between an pair of unlikely foes.

UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey ended a heated, back-and-forth dialogue with UFC octagon girl Arianny Celeste with a threat to give the UFC beauty “a black eye”.

The conflict started last week when Rousey was asked about her appearance in Maxim Magazine’s “Hot 100” list of the most beautiful people of 2012.  Rousey stated that she thought Arianny’s ranking on the list was “undeserving” and that it would have been funny if she was ranked higher than her.

“It would have been really funny if I’d beaten Arianny Celeste, because that would be like a triathlete coming along and beating the runners in a marathon,” Rousey said. “Like, ‘Ha-ha, it’s your job to show your ti**ies—I do that better than you!’ Maybe next year. She’s only getting older, and I’m reaching my prime.”

On Friday, Celeste snapped back, “I don’t really like the way she carries herself,” Celeste said. “I don’t think she’s a good role model for women. I think that women should empower each other and give each other a little pat on the back.”

Rousey, not known for being the most calm a rational person, hit back hard today with a threat that Arianny might want to take seriously.

“I will seriously give that skank a black eye,” said Rousey. “Really, her entire job is wearing a bra and holding a card in the air and she thinks she can talk sh*t to me?  I can’t wait to see her at my next fight.”

UFC President Dana White has yet to respond to Rousey’s comments but we have a feeling he won’t be tolerating any physical confrontation between fighters and ring girls.

Kyrie Irving And LeBron James Fight After All-Star Game, Police Deputy Knocked Unconscious

empire-sports-labron-and-KyrieNEW ORLEANS –

Saturday, at the NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving stole the show. Even with his ankle-breaking handle, improbable finishes in the paint and his on-target passes, Irving finished his second All-Star game with 31 points and 14 assists.

Transforming into his alter ego – Mr. Fourth Quarter – the talented 21-year-old point guard scored 15 points in the final frame and led a furious rally for the Eastern Conference while Indiana’s Paul George, New York’s Carmelo Anthony and even the game’s most dominant player, LeBron James, took a back seat to Irving’s brilliance.

Irving’s night took a quick turn for the worst as many of the players decided to enjoy the New Orleans night life after the game. According to witnesses, Irving walked up to James and started joking with him about how he “used to be the best”– James tried to brush it off, but after repeated taunts, James flipped  and shoved him back. Soon members of James and Irving’s entourage got involved and the brawl quickly escalated – police were called to the scene as club bouncers and other players attempted to calm brawl.
While police tried to break up the fights, a deputy was attacked and knocked unconscious. Acadian Ambulance transported the deputy to the Terrebonne General medical Center where he was treated for a concussion, a bruised jaw and other minor injuries.

The Krewe of Hercules organization is cooperating with this investigation and trying to identify more suspects involved in the fights and more arrest are expected.

Metta World Peace calls Jennifer Lawrence ‘Dirty Bitch’ At All-Star Weekend Party

Empire-Sports-Metta-World-Peace-Jennifer-LawrenceNEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA-

Athletes and mega-stars flocked to The Big Easy this weekend to party like rock stars at festivities around town celebrating the NBA All-Star Weekend at Smoothie King Center.

Celebrities that could be spotted at various drinking holes around town included rappers Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne.  NBA Owner and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban made his appearance as well.

Most escaped festivities without incident, however, that’s not so true for one mega-star after an encounter with NBA bad-boy Meta World Peace.

Hunger Games star and Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and her friend, Brendan Kelly of Louisville, Ky, were attending a party at the Maison Club in downtown New Orleans when they ran in to Meta World Peace.

According to a witness who was at the club at the time, Kelly, originally from Flint, Michigan, jokingly said to World Peace, “You’re lucky I wasn’t at the Palace back in 04!” referring to the Malace in the Palace in which Meta, then known as Ron Artest, ran into the crowd and assaulted fans.

World Peace, who appeared to be highly intoxicated at the time, did not find the joke funny and snapped back. “You better get your boy, Hunger Games, before I choke his ass.”

Lawrence, who is well known for her outspoken nature, snapped back.  The tension mounted and looked to get very ugly before a friend of World Peace stepped in to calm him, but not before Meta was able to get in a few nasty words of his own.  Several witnesses at the club reported to have heard Meta call Jennifer a “dirty bitch” as they walked away.

Meta World Peace could not be reached for comments.

Floyd Mayweather Jr., Manny Pacquiao Agree to Mega-Fight in 2014

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Empire-Sports-Manny-Pacquiao-and-Floyd-Mayweather-Jr. have already booked a date to settle the score once and for all. According to a source close to situation, the megabuck showdown between Money May and the Pacman will finally take place in September 2014 after several failed attempts to arrange the biggest match in boxing history.

According to Latino Post, Youtube Boxing channel 78Sports TV reported that the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao showdown is already a done deal. The source, who disclosed insider’s information about Mayweather’s upcoming fights with Robert Guerrero and Saul Canelo Alvarez before these bouts were actually announced, indicated that Money May has already agreed to terms with Pacquiao.

“Great news in the world of boxing. He [the source] is telling me that Floyd and Manny Pacquiao will be fighting in 2014 guaranteed and it’s already done,” the 78Sports anchor said in his 16-minute commentary on Youtube. “Everything else that you will see will be just theatrics from here on out. But the fight is already done”

 

Finally – The Showdown of the Century

The boxing world has been clamouring for the megabuck fight over the last five to six years. Disputes over blood testing and fight-purse sharing had been the stumbling blocks to get the fight done in the past. But now, it appears that Mayweather and his camp has had a change of heart, allowing Pacquiao to emerge as enticing opponent for the undefeated American boxer.

Two weeks ago, Mayweather stressed that he won’t give Pacquiao any shot at his belts primarily because of the Filipino boxing star’s association with Bob Arum’s Top-Rank promotions.

“We all know the Pacquiao fight, at this particular time, will never happen, and the reason why the fight won’t happen is because I will never do business with Bob Arum again in life, and Pacquiao is Bob Arum’s fighter,” Mayweather told FightHype.com.

“Bob Arum gives Pacquiao a date, whereas Floyd Mayweather gives Floyd Mayweather his own date. I will be fighting again in May and I will be fighting again in September.”

However, there are rumours circulating that Pacquiao will be fighting Mayweather as a free-agent without any backings from Top-Rank promotions. The Pacman is under contract with Top-Rank until the end of 2014, though he could be represented by MP Promotions for that specific fight alone.

On the other hand, Mayweather is expected to announce his opponent in his May 3 event in MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada. Great Britain’s top welterweight Amir Khan is the favourite to take on the Grand Rapids native in his Cinco de Mayo offering, but Marcos Maidana and Pacquiao have also gained momentum in the Money May sweepstakes, following their sensational wins in their latest bouts.

Maidana is fresh from a 12-round unanimous decision upset of pound-for-pound fighter Adrien Broner, while Pacquiao peppered Brandon Rios on his way to a unanimous decision victory inNovember in Macau, China.

Marcus Smart Starts Fight With Floyd Mayweather In McDonald’s Parking Lot

EmpireSports-mayweather-smartSTILLWATER, OKLAHOMA-  Marcus Smart has recently received a three game suspension from a controversial altercation with a Texas Tech fan on the court’s sideline.

Smart has defiantly outdone himself this time with his recent fight with Floyd Mayweather in a McDonalds parking lot Friday afternoon.

 

Smart was seen hanging out with friends Metta WorldPeace and Chris Brown before apparently coming up and “punching Mayweather in the back of the head”. The Police Report then proceeded to say that ” Mayweather fell down and started to scream and cry for help as Marcus Smart fled the scene in a orange Honda Civic as Chris Brown drove away”. There is still no motive known of why Marcus Smart did such a crime, but many think its from him letting out his anger from the suspension he received Monday.

 

In recent news, Mayweather has been taken care of in Oklahoma’s City finest hospital. Mayweather had the following message to Marcus Smart over Twitter.

Marcus Smart has yet to be found after the incident but reports say he is still with Chris Brown and Metta World Peace while possibly committing more assault crimes by the second. The NCAA has yet to give details on Marcus Smart’s future in basketball, but if he is proven guilty he might not be able to play college basketball again. Police are still under the pursuit for Marcus Smart before Mayweather can get to him, if you have any details to where he can be found please contact Oklahoma City police.

Blake Griffin Smacks Justin Bieber At Hollywood Starbucks

blake-griffin-justin-bieber-starbucksWEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA–

Justin Bieber simply can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble.

Police were dispatched this morning to respond to an altercation at a Starbucks in West Hollywood involving some familiar faces.

A barista at the coffee house was apparently confronted by Bieber  when he refused to serve the pop star because he wasn’t wearing a shirt.

“He came in with no shirt on and his pants hanging down and underwear showing and tried to order a caramel apple machiatto.”, said Joey Goldsmith, the Starbucks barista, “I just told him he would have to put a shirt on if he wanted to order.”

That’s when Bieber snapped.

According to the police report Bieber started cussing at the barista and threatening to have his bodyguard, “kick his ass”.

Fortunately for Goldsmith, LA Clippers star Blake Griffin had been enjoying a drink at a table when he witnessed  the altercation and stepped in.

Witnesses at the scene reported that Griffin tried to calm Bieber but the Biebs wasn’t having any of it. There was more yelling, and some pushing and that’s when Griffin smacked Bieber, knocking him to the floor.

“He smacked the shit out of him” said one witness, “then I saw Justin stumble out of the door looking like he was crying.”

Bieber was gone before police arrived at the scene.
