UFC Fight Night 63 Recap

UFC Fight Night 63 was a smashing success. The main card of the event was very entertaining. The fights were exciting, and they featured a ton of knockouts and submissions. However, there was one fight that received a lot of criticisms. The matchup between Al Iaquinta and Jorge Masvidal was ruled a split decision for Al, but many of the ringside fans feel that Jorge was robbed. After the bad decision, Al Iaquinta yelled and cursed at the audience. Iaquinta will most likely be suspended because of his actions.

UFC Fight Night 63 will not be remembered for one bad decision. Fans at Anastasia Date know that the main event of the card featured Chad Mendes vs. Ricardo Lamas. Mendes and Lamas are two of the highest rated fighters in the featherweight division, but the main event made it seem like one fighter was far superior than the other. Chad Mendes completely obliterated Ricardo Lamas in their fight.

The main event started with both fighters showing respect, but Chad Mendes quickly steamrolled right through Ricardo Lamas. The fight was ruled a TKO victory for Chad Mendes, and now Mendes’ rank has gone up. However, Chad Mendes has already fought for the title twice, and he was beaten both times by the reigning champion Jose Aldo. A lot of people are wondering what’s next for Chad Mendes.

Coffee is Good for Your Health

The controversy is almost as old as the dark brew itself. Wikipedia says the debate on whether coffee is good or bad for us has been ongoing, but the longer it goes on, the more the evidence leans towards coffee being good for us. The latest research findings have pointed out that coffee is very good for our health, providing far more health benefits than anyone could have imagined.

Medical experts are now saying that coffee provides protection against heart disease, diabetes, breast and prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The United States dietary guidelines, which are updated every five years, recommends that drinking coffee is good for you, even drinking multiple cups of coffee each day poses no health risks. This recommendation came out in their recent 2015 updated guidelines and is the first time coffee has been promoted as a healthy beverage.

It is not yet understood how and what coffee does to provide the health benefits, but ongoing research will be done on our beloved java. For now, those of us who love our fresh, hot cup(s) of coffee can drink with confidence, knowing we are doing something good for our health. We must, of course, leave out the sugar, artificial sweeteners, cream and milk so we don’t undo all the good the actual coffee is doing for our health.
