This past weekend was extraordinarily combat sports friendly. There were good UFC fights, but more importantly, one of boxing's biggest (if not the biggest) stars returned to the ring after more than 500 days away. Floyd Mayweather, Jr. took on Victor Ortiz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The result? A controversial knockout win for Mayweather, but only after an illegal headbutt from Ortiz and pure referee incompetence from Joe Cortez.
