Who would win a fight between UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey and undefeated boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr.? It was a close contest in a reader survey we did recently , but UFC commentator Joe Rogan says Rousey would win. “It's all about how much time Floyd has to prepare, because he will really have to work on his takedown defense. That would be the big thing,” Rogan said on ESPN2′s “SportsNation.” “If Ronda got a clinch on him, it's not just about worrying about being taken down to the ground, it's worrying about knees to the body.

At first glance this pairing of Joe Rogan and Doug Stanhope could be dismissed as an evening of strictly bro-centered laughs with two comics who briefly were the replacement hosts for "The Man Show" after the end of the Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla era. But don't dismiss the chops on display as both are among the sharpest wits working today, with Stanhope reaching a new audience with a raw-nerved turn on FX's "Louie.

More than a half-century ago, Larry Doby walked into a Cleveland clubhouse where some teammates would not even shake his hand. On Tuesday, he got a much warmer welcome from the Hall of Fame. Doby, 73, the first black player in the American League, was an easy choice as the Veterans Committee voted in its full limit of four new members. Former American League president Lee MacPhail, Negro Leagues star "Bullet" Joe Rogan and turn-of-the-century shortstop "Gorgeous" George Davis also were elected.

When Bob Odenkirk learned that Fox was going to produce a pilot of his sitcom idea -- "The Big Wide World of Carl Laemke," about a suburban father who refuses to grow up -- he was briefly elated. Then the dread set in. "I thought, 'Years of stories? I don't know, man,' " said Odenkirk, whose past TV experience includes the satiric "Mr. Show" on HBO. "And somebody from the network said, 'Don't worry, most shows don't make it.'

For nearly 40 years, the Comedy Store has been a training ground for countless Hollywood aspirants, providing a showcase for the likes of Richard Pryor, Jay Leno and David Letterman. But these days, nobody is joking about the future of the Sunset Strip landmark -- or the condition of Mitzi Shore, the Store's 79-year-old owner. Both are at the center of a lawsuit filed last week by Pauly Shore, the actor-comedian and her youngest son. In his complaint, Pauly, 41, alleges that his older brother Peter, a psychologist and former TV director who lives in Portland, Ore., has been exerting "undue influence" over their mother, who suffers from Parkinson's disease and other neurological problems.

It's not easy to out-charisma Kevin James, who has made a career of playing nice, non-threatening guys who manage to get the girl and save the day. But in "Here Comes the Boom," Bas Rutten steals the show. Rutten plays Niko, a former MMA fighter who trains James' character, biology teacher Scott Voss, as an MMA fighter so Voss can raise money to save the music program at his school. Rutten has several funny scenes in the movie, as he also teaches yoga and several other classes at the local gym. Oh, and Rutten sings during the movie, and his voice gives you a glimpse of why he went into MMA and not singing.
