Entertainment News

George R.R. Martin, the now 70-year-old author of Game Of Thrones, has clearly hit some sort of writer’s block. Plus, he’s not exactly a model of health, the clock is certainly ticking when it comes to his ability to create, especially considering he has not one but TWO books to write, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.

To relive the action, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has called on its high-definition, super slow-motion cameras to deliver the promotion’s one-of-a-kind “UFC 231: Fight Motion” highlights. The highlights give you a better idea of just how punishing and damaging the best strikes of the night were.
