    July 10 is the first day fans can finally tip fighters live during matches with the new app, TapStats! #TipYourFighter

    The unfair payment of MMA fighters has long been an issue in the MMA community - most recently highlighted by Sarah “Too Sweet” Alpar, who had to launch a GoFundMe in order to train full-time for her upcoming UFC fight.

    General Can this news service get Millenials interested in watching the news and being better informed?

    So, Millennials don't really watch the news. The median age of Fox News and MSNBC viewers is about 65 and the median age of CNN viewers is about 60. I don't have stats for network news, but I doubt they are appreciably different. I know I didn't give even one fuck about watching the news...

    General General movie discussion (news, reviews, whatever)

    I figured it could be good to have a general movie discussion thread. Any time there's some movie news, or you want to post a review or offer some other comment about a film, and you don't think it's worth creating a whole new thread for it then post it in here. I've watched some films and run...
