But Kay isn't optimistic about Trump's chances in the swing states, pointing out that he doesn't have a consistent lead in any of them and his campaign is struggling to get itself organized on the ground.

"I just try to enjoy life, even the bad stuff - this is the bad stuff", Punk said, pointing to his injuries. "I definitely want to keep going", he said.
Punk - who was announced by that name, as opposed to his real name Phil Brooks - looked a lot leaner than when he competed for WWE, weighing in at 170 for the welterweight contest. Sorry, people who take a whole bunch of enjoyment from watching Punk get humiliated. "Throughout his interviews, he'd say things like, in speaking about himself, that he didn't belong in the UFC and he didn't belong on the main card", Punk said , per Dave Meltzer of MMA Fighting .
Because for all of the opinions about Newton and his brash style of play, the league is better with him on the field. The hit left Newton doubled over in pain on the sideline.

This will be the third major league start for Lugo, who earned his first career win last Thursday, when he allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out five over five shutout innings as the Mets beat the St. Reyes led off the bottom of the eighth with a double and took third on a fly out to the warning track by Alejandro De Aza.

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill had 108 of his 186 passing yards in the fourth quarter and gave the Dolphins their first lead with a 2-yard touchdown run with 4:08 left.
