LAS VEGAS—The thing nobody tells you about watching fights live is how quiet the arena can get.
Michael Johnson and Justin Gaethje will fight in Las Vegas in a week to close up this season of The Ultimate Fighter. The two exchanged barbs at the UFC’s summer press conference, and Gaethje revealed himself to be perhaps not the best shit-talker. Thursday, Johnson went at Gaethje and called him the product of incest.
South African Wayde van Niekerk chopped 15 hundredths of a second off Michael Johnson’s 400m record, set in 1999, en route to a dominating gold medal performance in Rio.
A new BBC documentary about Usain Bolt—hosted by fellow sprinter Michael Johnson—adoringly mentions the man Bolt beat to claim the "fastest man alive" crown....Michael Johnson! Not mentioned: The one guy who was actually faster than Johnson.
Some big names will be joining Donald Trump in the boardroom, and Deadspin isn't afraid to get service-y and give you the lowdown on which of the former athletic legends might show some acumen for entrepreneurship.
So this probably needs to be addressed: Florida A&M freshman quarterback Michael Johnson was arrested today after he admitted that he lied about being attacked at gunpoint in his dorm room. And no one is sure why he did it.
