By staff Published: August 29, 2016

What does Cavs guard Iman Shumpert, his fiancé Teyanna Taylor, a cat face and some sheep have in common?

Kanye West, of course.

After four minutes of Yeezy being Yeezy, he dropped his new video for Fade during last night’s VMA’s. The video featured some major moves from Taylor. It ended with some – ahem – steamy scenes between Taylor and Shumpert. Oh, and then Taylor’s face was turned into a cat and a herd sheep surrounded the couple and their daughter.

Where to watch UFC 201 in the Akron area

By Dan Kadar Published: July 28, 2016

Fresh off the historic, and somewhat disappointing, UFC 200 is UFC 201 taking place on Saturday night.

The event is headlined by a welterweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and challenger Tyron Woodley. Lawler (27-10) has been the welterweight champion since December of 2014 when he beat Johny Hendricks to win the title. He's on a five-fight win streak after a split decision win over Carlos Condit at UFC 195 in January.

Woodley (15-3) is challenging for a title for the first time in his UFC career. He hasn't fought since January of 2015 at UFC 183 where he defeated Kelvin Gastelum in a split decision victory.

UFC 201 also features a strawweight fight between Rosa Namajunas and Karolina Kowalkiewicz, a welterweight fight between Matt Brown and Jake Ellenberger, Francisco Rivera and Erik Perez in a bantamweight bout and Ian McCall and Justin Scoggins fighting in the flyweight division.

Now they've turned their sights to Donald Trump, the freshly official Republican presidential nominee. Because the Browns don't really have a logo, the concept can fall flat. Here's their Trump version of the Browns helmet:
