Sports News- August 17th

By: Frank Hyden

-Paulo Costa has announced that he’s 220lbs. six weeks ahead of his UFC Middleweight Title fight against the champion Israel Adesanya. That fight will be at 185lbs. so Costa has to lose 35lbs. before then. I’ll just say it doesn’t look good, either for him making the weight or what it’ll do to him in order to lose that any pounds.

-Some good news, whether you’re a fan of his or not, Alex Smith has been cleared to return to football following a horrible leg injury he suffered in November 2018. Smith suffered a compound fracture of his right tibia, fractured right fibula, and a severe infection. He required 17 surgeries and at one point the doctors were talking about amputating his leg. There’s an unbelievably graphic picture of what Smith’s leg looked like four days after the injury. Warning- don’t click the link if you have a weak stomach. Link
