Kevin Lavery
Flint native Claressa Shields: the first women's boxing gold medalist in Olympic history.

The Olympics, The Fight of the Century, Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, Team U.S.A, Tim Hightower, Preseason Football, and Ryan Lochte.

It's been called "the fight of the century." Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz's rematch had Al and engineer Isaac Constans on the edge of their seats when they watched it this weekend, but it also had them scratching their heads over the decision. Find out why for both, and also find out what factors influenced the three-judge panel. And the two weeks of incessant competitiveness are over as the closing ceremony in Rio temporarily put out the torch. But while Al decides to celebrate the best of the Olympics, Isaac takes the opposite approach, playing the Monday grouch as he goes on a legendary indictment of several Team U.S.A competitors. Finally, Tim Hightower, running back on the New Orleans Saints, was on the phone Sunday, and Current Sports recaps that conversation to finish the first show of the week.
