Weidman Beats Silva To Win UFC Middleweight Title

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chris Weidman stopped Anderson Silva in the second round of their UFC middleweight title fight on Saturday night, ending the champion's long stay on top of the division.
    
Weidman landed a short left hook that sent Silva to the canvas, and then pounced on the ultimate fighting star, landing a few more shots before referee Herb Dean stopped the bout at 1:18.
    
Weidman ended Silva's 17-fight win streak and nearly 7-year reign as champion while improving to 10-0. Silva dropped to 33-5.
    
In the co-main event in front of a capacity crowd at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar outwrestled and outstruck Charles Oliveira to get the win by unanimous decision.
    
On the undercard, Cub Swanson stopped Dennis Siver with a third-round TKO.

    Colbert mom says son bit by black flies despite precautions

    COLBERT, Wash. - We've hit that period in the year where bugs can really be a problem. The black flies are definitely back and they're biting. Tips to avoid being bit include avoiding areas where the bugs are popular, wearing long sleeves and pants, wearing clothing that is light colored as well as utilizing bug spray. Sara Bunke has taking these precautions but the flies are still eating up her son.
