Real Madrid vs Liverpool Live Stream: How to watch for free
The Manual examines the United States men's soccer team as it stands on the brink of earning a ticket to the World Cup in Qatar this summer.

Later today, the second leg of the Champions League begins, and Liverpool takes on Real Madrid.

It's sure to be an exciting match filled with drama, excitement, and maybe even a real upset or two.

Understandably, you'd want to watch live, especially as a fan of one of these teams, or heck even just because you love soccer.

Watch how one MLB rule change led to a 20-second at-bat, strikeout
Thanks to a simple pitch clock, MLB is now a much quicker game
PNC Park Pittsburgh Pennsylvania baseball mlb

While the larger MLB bases may have grabbed all the headlines in the initial flurry of news about the league's rule changes, another new rule has also led to major changes. Although the season hasn't even started yet, the pitch clock that was designed to make games shorter and keep pitchers from extending time between pitches is now leading to strikeouts that feel almost unsettlingly fast.

In one March 2 game between the New York Yankees and the Pittsburgh Pirates, an entire at-bat took just about 20 seconds. The at-bat in question came during the second inning when Wandy Peralta struck Tucupita Marcano in just three pitches. The strikeout was likely influenced by the pitch clock, although these pitches were atypically fast, even given the new rule. You can watch the full at-bat below:

Why You Need to Watch Undefeated Khamzat Chimaev Take on Nate Diaz at UFC 279
ufc 279 chimaev vs diaz teaser image

This Saturday, undefeated rising star Khamzat Chimaev is facing down MMA legend Nate Diaz in the Octagon at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. UFC 279: Chimaev vs. Diaz is the MMA league's big pay-per-view event for September, but it's fairly unique in that there are no championship belts on the line this time. Instead, the main event is a showdown between Diaz and Chimaev, two top-tier fighters on the UFC welterweight roster, with another welterweight bout between Li Jingliang and Tony Ferguson serving as the co-main. This isn't an event you'll want to miss, so read on to learn more about the fighters and how you can watch the UFC 279 live stream online this weekend.

Nate Diaz is a fighter who needs no introduction to fans of mixed martial arts. The 37-year-old southpaw has been fighting with the UFC since 2007 and currently holds a professional record of 20 wins and 13 losses. Although his record is not the most impressive at first glance and he has never held a mainline UFC championship, Diaz is a highly regarded fighter as well as a big fan favorite for his ability to go the distance in the Octagon. He most recently faced Leon Edwards at UFC 263 in June of last year, where a bloodied Diaz put on a great show but ultimately lost by unanimous decision.
