While the first regular season game isn’t until September 12th, sports networks are going all out when it comes to the NFL training camps. With 24 hours or programming to fill and only MLB, MLS, Golf and the occasional UFC fight to fill it up, ESPN and NFL Network are happy to do whatever live coverage they can of the countries most popular sport.

If you didn’t think for whatever reason that Ronda Rousey wasn’t the best female fighter on the planet then her :34 knockout of Bethe Correia should help convince you. Her last four wins have taken a grand total of two minutes and 10 seconds. We don’t even want to know how much money that is per second for her but it’s probably not enough. She, and Conor McGregor, are now the sports biggest stars. They have come on with such a flurry that it almost makes the idea of an Anderson Silva vs Georges St-Pierre ‘super fight’ seem below ridiculous.
