Game 7: Butler’s prediction, Boston’s downfall, and the NBA Finals

The Miami Heat are heading to the NBA Finals after a decisive 103-84 win against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of what was a series for the ages.

It was no surprise to some that Davis knocked Garcia out with a shot to the ribs in the seventh round.

UFC 287: 3 things we learned

To say that UFC 287 delivered would be a disservice to the event. After 20 years, the UFC returned to Miami and served a treat for an eager live audience and millions watching from home.
