Overwatch has found a fantastic way to keep players engaged … and to keep taking their money.

Still, stranger things have happened in Spanish football down the years, and given the south-coast club beat Barcelona at La Rosaleda earlier in 2016-17, they do have the pedigree for an upset. Those in Catalonia will hope so, anyway....more
Former WWE champion CM Punk had an ugly debut in the UFC, but he still took home a sizable paycheck for his efforts. That raised the interest (and ire) of many around the combat sports world, including WWE intercontinental champion (and former CM Punk foe) Dean Ambrose.
Speaking with The Sun, Ambrose left no doubt about a potential foray into MMA. He's interested...if the price is right.
"I'll fight anyone for enough money," he said. "Give me half-a-million dollars. Put them in the ring, I'll do it right now, I'll do it tonight."
