Demi Lovato has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the upcoming Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor on August 26. The pop star has long been vocal, and visible, about her love for the world of mixed martial arts, so it isn’t a total surprise that she would be associated with a highly anticipated fight.

Demi Lovato first started to show off her love of all things mixed martial arts (MMA) towards the end of last year.

She has made it a point to train with people who are very much involved with the upper echelons of MMA. It was even reported that the singer wanted to have a true, legitimate MMA fight. That said, it isn’t totally surprising that UFC would tap the singer to sing the national anthem.

She has put her training to the test by going against Sylvester Stallone.

Okay. Clearly, Stallone let her win but who else can say they got to rumble with Rocky?

Lovato has expressed that MMA helped her break the boredom of her traditional workouts.

“Sometimes I get really bored when I do just an hour of cardio, so sometimes I struggle with boredom,” Lovato told PEOPLE. “But that’s why I like to train MMA, because it keeps it exciting.”

She even dated BJJ black belt and MMA fighter Guilherme ”Bomba” Vasconcelos at one point.

And, quite frankly, she owned him in the gym. ?

But, the burning question is, will Lovato plug her Fabletics clothing line?

Only watching her performance will tell.

The Little League World Series brings the best teams of the world together for several days of uninterrupted baseball, which culminate in a game between the United States champs versus the international champs. What happened Monday after the Latin America (Venezuela) vs. Caribbean (Dominican Republic) game showed what baseball and sportsmanship can do to bring people together. After a very competitive game between the two teams, Caribbean pitcher Edward Uceta collapsed in tears on the mound when Latin America player secured a triple play giving Latin America a walk-off victory. In response to Uceta’s reaction, Latin America coaches and players flooded the pitcher’s mound and consoled Uceta.

The Latin America team, represented by Venezuela, scored a 3-2 walk-off victory against the Caribbean team, represented by the Dominican Republic.

Latin America had been trailing Caribbean 2-1 for most of the game. After a very competitive game between the two teams, Caribbean pitcher Edward Uceta collapsed in tears on the mound when a Latin America player hit a triple, giving Latin America a walk-off victory. In response to Uceta’s tears, coaches and players from the opposing team flooded the pitcher’s mound to console Uceta.

“Edward has a big heart. It was sad,” Venezuela manager Alexander Ballesteros told the press, according ABC Sports. “It could have happened to anyone. It could have happened to our own ‘Little [Jose] Altuve’ here, [Romero].”

Just goes to show that no matter how competitive, things might get on the field, there is always time for true sportsmanship.

The kind moment wasn’t lost on the fans, who tend to get pretty competitive on social media.

You just have to respect a competitor who lays it all out on the field during a game.

It truly was a moment of pride for Latinos and baseball fans all over the world.

Bien hecho.
