The following is a guest article by Trent.
Two weeks ago we saw the long awaited battle between George St. Pierre and Nick Diaz. And now that the event is over, what is up next for these two fighters who are still very much in their prime?
George St. Pierre
George St. Pierre is, by most standards, is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world (sans Anderson Silva). After beating Nick Diaz so convincingly (albeit a little boringly), the logical next step is to take on the number 1 contender in the weight class, Johny Hendricks. Hendricks, the most explosive yet underrated fighter in the Welterweight division, has been waiting all too long for the title shot. By beating Carlos Condit in a unanimous decision, Hendricks has shown that he deserves the shot more than anyone. But aside from defending his title, most people will want to see a fight between George St. Pierre and Anderson "The Spider" Silva, before they both get too old. But getting the two to fight is going to be hard.

In case you were worried that the buzz surrounding Beyonce was beginning to fade, fear not: the R&B singer announced earlier today that she was pregnant, with triplets!
Though she and Jay-Z have confirmed they are expecting three girls sometime in late July/early August, she’s not visibly showing just yet — a near miracle for a woman who is allegedly somewhere around four months along, and carrying three babies.
“It’s so hard for everyone to believe she’s having triplets, especially with a tour coming up,” April Sciocchi, celebrity columnist, said. “And she looks fantastic! It’s almost as if she’s not pregnant at all.”
However, Beyonce said she’ll prepare for her soon-to-be baby bump by releasing a maternity line called Chiste. Clothes from said line will be available at the merchandise stands at her concerts.
That’s right — Beyonce confirmed she’ll continue with her upcoming tour, with one caveat: she'll change the name to "I Am… Pregnant World Tour," a homage to one of her previous albums. E! cameras will be following the star around on her tour in order to document the latter half of her pregnancy. It will culminate in a Kardashian-like reality show, a twist for the couple who began their relationship so secretively. Curious what they'll name their girls?
