NFR 2017 live stream – Cooper Martin ready for his first National Finals Rodeo

Cooper Martin finally found his payday and he’s riding it all the way to Las Vegas — literally and figuratively. NFR 2017 live stream – Cooper Martin ready for his first National Finals Rodeo

The 20-year-old Alma native had essentially given up on rodeo this past summer, deciding to compete close to his home in Texas where he lives with his girlfriend. He didn’t have the right horse, a horse trailer or the money required to do what he needed.

That is, until he found his new horse, Payday, in May, and in many ways the perfect horse to help take him to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, where he’ll open the tie-down roping competition Thursday at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Watch NFR 2017 live stream on CBS Network

“I really wasn’t planning on rodeoing because I didn’t have the horse power,” said Martin, who will be competing in the NFR for the first time. The competition will be televised nightly on CBS Sports Network. “Once I got the horse in May, I called my travel partner and we left,” Martin said. “I only had $12,000 in the world standings on June 1.”

By the end of June, Martin had earned $20,000. In July alone, Martin racked up $52,000, aided by a monster July 4 weekend when he competed in four rodeos and earned $13,000. By summer’s end, Martin had won more than $85,000 — good enough for 14th in the world heading into this year’s NFR.

The top 15 cowboys in the world standings in each event — based on earnings — qualify for the NFR, a 10-day rodeo and the sport’s Super Bowl of sorts, which has been held in Las Vegas since 1985.

“It’s just unbelievable,” said Martin, who is sponsored by Wrangler. “I’ve been dreaming about this since I was 8 years old. And (now) that it’s finally come true, I don’t think it has set in quite yet.”

Martin is in elite company, as only 120 cowboys and cowgirls make the NFR each year in the seven events. He’ll be roping along side some of the greatest cowboys in the sport’s history — guys like 23-time world champion Trevor Brazile, who is sixth in the world and has won more money in his career than any cowboy in history.

“I’ve looked up to guys like Trevor Brazile a lot, Cody Ohl and Tyson Durfey,” said Martin, who finished 33rd in the world standings as a rookie last year. “It’s funny, all those guys I rope with now, I’ve watched them on TV forever.

“Last year, being a rookie, I really didn’t know anybody, but this summer has opened up a lot for me. I got to know a lot of guys. I go from seeing these guys at one or two events a year to now every week. It’s pretty awesome.”

Martin got to Vegas thanks to his consistency.

While he won his share of rodeos this year — including the Columbia River Circuit Finals (Yakima, Wash.), Corn Palace Stampede (Mitchell, S.D.), Laramie (Wyo.) Jubilee Days, Jerome (Idaho) County Fair and Rodeo, Eagle (Idaho) Rodeo and the American Royal Rodeo (Kansas City, Mo.) — he found that the best road to the NFR was about placing, not always winning.

“I finally realized that I had to place to be with those guys,” said Martin, who will be wearing No. 81 on his back in Vegas. “All those guys that are doing this, it is about consistency. You go at it thinking you have to win everything, but you aren’t going to beat all those guys all the time. They’re going for first, too, but it’s the guys who place more often that make it to this level.”

Martin did that, placing in 17 of the 22 rodeos he entered in July alone. Though Martin didn’t win a rodeo during the successful July 4 weekend, he placed third or fourth in all of them.

“I got on a roll — and it can be good roll or a bad roll — but I got on a good roll,” said Martin, who briefly attended Hill College in Hillsboro, Texas. “I’m doing it every day and you just get into a groove when everything is going right for you.

“After last summer, I came home and had a rough winter. Then I left this summer and it was completely different.”

And now with the start of the NFR only a day away, Martin has tried to play it cool, like the next 10 days are just any other rodeo.

But it’s not, exactly. It doesn’t get any bigger than this, especially for a first-timer.

“I’ve been practicing this fall and getting ready,” said Martin, who won high school nationals as a junior in 2014. “And I’m not really nervous about the roping. That’s the same as anywhere I guess, but you’re going up against the top 15 in the world, so you want to prepare yourself the best you can.

“I’m just looking at it like another rodeo. I think if you let that stuff get to you, you’re there for other reasons. I just like to rope and if I can make a living at it, it’s the best job in the world.”

While the roping part of the NFR 2017 live stream is nearly the same as any other rodeo — other than being under the lights with 20,000 people in attendance for 10 straight days — it’s all the other hoopla that surrounds the event that makes Martin nervous. It’s a week of celebrations, ceremonies, autograph signings and special appearances.

“I think I’m more nervous for stuff like that than I am about the actual roping,” he said. “I haven’t really been in front of a TV that much.”

Martin aims to make this an annual visit to Las Vegas.

“I’d like to think it’s just the start for me, but it’s my first one and I want to make it count, so I just want to go rope and have fun,” he said. “I had a lot of fun this summer, got to rope every day, big rodeos. That’s just what I like to do and hopefully I can keep doing it.” Sources

Mayweather vs McGregor Live Fight Online

It’s going to be the hottest ticket in sport. So far, though, fans aren’t exactly gathering the box office to buy tickets for.

A check through online on Saturday revealed hundreds even, thousands of seats are still available from Ticketmaster. There are so many vacant seats that fans with adequate room left on their credit cards can buy six tickets together in 162 different spots throughout the ring.

The reason might be the cause of the colossal prices set by the promoters.The cheapest original tickets on Ticketmaster have a demand of $3,500. Or maybe crowd are just waiting for the right time to buy the ticket, hoping the price of tickets will go down.

One or the other way, advertiser Leonard Ellerbe isn’t concerned. He says the fight will not only sell out, but will break records for the richest gate.The fight is about 25 days later. But about hundreds even thousands of tickets are still available.

McGregor vs Mayweather Fight PPV 

There’s a reason behind hundreds of good seats remain for what was supposed to be the year’s hottest ticket.

Absolutely, there are two reasons behind the advertising bubble surrounding the fight between Mayweather Jr. and McGregor has been poke hole in , at least a bit.

McGregor vs Mayweather Fight – Thousand of tickets are still available for The Money Fight

It seems like the Mayweather vs McGregor superfight on 26th August isn’t on the best sale of ticket in town after all. Consecutive weeks of buildup that combined a four stop, three country world press tour, tickets for the boxing viewers went on sale last Monday 24th July.

McGregor vs Mayweather Fight 

But buying a few tickets wasn’t as easy as logging onto and believing you could buy something before scalpers capture them all up. To avoid thsi situation, the advertiser used the ‘Ticketmaster Verified Fans’ system, which settled the status of everybody and enrolled them into a raffle draw system where incidental crowds got a code to buy up maximum two tickets.

Mayweather vs. McGregor – “Big Business” [Full Show]

That looked like a honest way to give the moderate fan a fair shot at buying tickets, but in afterthought all those hoops and the doubt it caused may have driven away a lot of crowd. As of last night, over three thousand seats to the event are still unsold
according to ESPN reporter Darren Rovell.

We have confirmed that there is still a lot of tickets available in all sorts of shots around the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. If anyone got $3500, he can get a seat in the upper decks while cent pinchers may want to acknowledge ‘Verified Resale Tickets’ in the complete worst nosebleed corners of the ring going for $2000. Are you feeling absurd? Tickets for the first pot are still available for a measly $5000 each, unless you want the center court area ,right in front of the ring, then it will cost you $10,000 – $15,000.

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor Live PPV Fight

The biggest question we have, though, is whether these tickets being available is a flag that perhaps the world isn’t as interested in seeing Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor as the advertisers behind it would have us believe. A lot of digital autograph has been gone laying out just how uncompetitive boxing specialists think this fight will be, and the Manny Pacquiao fight in 2015 absolutely large gathering home how annoying paying big bucks to see Mayweather’s exclusive brand of ‘fighting’ is.

The Money Fight- Mayweather vs McGregor Live

While we await the fight to sell out as the fight date appearing nearer, the paucity of demand weeks out makes it less sure that Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor will destroy the all time PPV record held by Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao of 4 million. Don’t cry for all the multi-millionaires putting on the fight, though they’ll quiet end up doing well, even if the show only earns nearly 2 million buys. More Updates

Mayweather vs McGregor Fight- McGregor claims to win verbal war with Mayweather despite racism allegations being made against him

Once again I warmly welcome you to our site to have all kinds of fresh news and updates of Mayweather vs McGregor Fight. Four Promotional world press tour has finished yesterday throughout in London, UK. McGregor said that we have won the verbal war against Mayweather despite charge of racism being made against him. So, let’s have some fresh news and updates of this most desirable fight of McGregor and Mayweather which is going to be held on 26 of August 2017 in Showtime PPV channel.

Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Predictions

McGregor said he had won every round of his promotional world press tour alongside Mayweather but the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC) superstar was once again forced to defend himself against charge of racism.

The claims equialled against McGregor first appear during the opening two legs of the four-date journey through North America and Europe to make publicity for their August 26 heaveweight fight when he told Mayweather “dance for me, boy” – a phrase that has racial meaning.

McGregor vs Mayweather Superfight Updates

The verbal war press tour is officially finished. In a matter of four days tour, four cities, and three countries, unbeaten boxing legend Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion McGregor made their rounds to promote their forthcoming fight on Aug. 26 live on Showtime (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two superstars made blockade throughout the week in Los Angeles , Toronto, New York, and London.

While the Mayweather vs. McGregor World Tour produced sportswear at times, it was chock-full of back-and-forth transfer between two of the best verbal warrior in combat sports today. The gigantic press tour featured on-stage disturbanced, racial
innuendos, flying One dollar bills, unlikely bets, flag grabs and money bags, and a battle between warrior and warrior.

The three-country media tour event in four successive days started Tuesday in Los Angeles, and it then continued in Toronto and New York before finished Friday in London. If you’re into two fighters firing profane salvos at each other at the top of
their lungs, then this world tour was exclusively for you.

No. 1 Press Tour – Los Angeles, Staples Center, July 11

The start at Staples Center was crazy and wild, but in recollection, it wasn’t that crazy and wild related to the rest of the

No. 2 Prss Tour– Toronto, Budweiser Stage, July 12

How was the second tour not the high point of the entire tour? Conor McGregor, following what was widely treated a victory for Floyd Mayweather the day before in L.A., was absolutely on fire. He opened up his turn by calling on the Budweiser Stage crowd to chant “F*ck the Mayweathers!” – which they happily compelled twice. That led right into one of the most unexpected moments, when Conor McGregor came to Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza and went off on him, calling him a “(curse) weasel” over controversy surrounding McGregor’s microphone being cut in L.A. From there, McGregor continued in a classic form.

No. 3 Press Tour – Brooklyn, Barclays Center, July 13

After joining its peak the day before in Toronto, New York is where everything seamed to apart. Yes, Conor McGregor’s clothing featuring a “polar bear coat” – and no shirt, mind you – was a sight to behold. But the two fighters showing up 90 minutes late really seemed to rock the fans at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The same old dirty word-laced back-and-forths got stale, too.

No. 4 Press Tour – London, SSE Arena Wembley, July 14

As the last stop of press tour, London probably was always cursed for nothing better than a ordinary show. And that’s what it got. The setup was different with a ring constructed in the center – as opposed to a stage at one end – of SSE Arena Wembley. So seeing Conor Mayweather and Floyd McGregor inside a boxing ring for the first time I guess was kind of cool.

World Press Tour is Over through in London – McGregor won trash-talk battle with Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor’s world press tour spanning four cities in four days finally came to an end in London earlier today (Fri., July 14, 2017) when the two competitors met inside The SSE Arena in London, England . It is the last time Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will come face-to-face before weighing in before their meeting inside the boxing ring on 26th August 2017 live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Mayweather vs McGregor- All latest updates

McGregor insisted that he won the four-round trash-talking battle with Mayweather after enjoying a raucous 29th birthday party at the London press conference media event on last Friday.

Floyd Mayweather was drowned out by boos, while Conor McGregor reveled in the underpin and reactions to his insults on the last leg of a four-stop media world tour in front of a crowd of some 10,000 people at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Mayweather vs McGregor World Tour: London Highlights

Mayweather, however, McGregor wished a happy birthday to Mayweather.

“I’ve got to pay him that much respect before I f— him up,” he said.

Conor McGregor responded by asking the crowd to shout, “F— Floyd Mayweather.”

Conor McGregor, as he has done all the week, insulted his rival on subjects from his dress sense to his baldness to his business.

Thankfully, the Mayweather Jr. vs.  McGregor World press tour is over. This four-day event started out entertaining and wound up being just plain embarrassing and unfortunate, and both men are to blame.

10 Important Facts From The London Tour Event

London Tour Event  Setup Was the Best of All

If you’ve ever watched an importand boxing match in the UK, you shouldn’t be surprised that the crowd in London had the best ramp, introductions, stage and overall presentation was great. Things looked stellar, but it’s too bad the fighters were mostly tapped of entertaining material.

The Staredown in the event

The two men had met each other in their fourth set of staredowns in as many days. Conor McGregor has been getting more physical fitness with each day and his disposition was its most adversarial on the last Friday.

Probably, the London Fans is Eating out of McGregors’s Hand

With great surprise, the London fans was on McGregor’s side. They cheered loudly as McGregor told his rags-to-riches story and booed Floyd Mayweather ferociously. This had a lot to do with McGregor’s enjoyment level during his speech.

Conor McGregors’s Best Lines

In what lasted about 10 minutes, Conor McGregor called Floyd Mayweather stupid for wearing high heel shoes on Thursday. He was hinting Mayweather was trying to look taller. Conor also annoyed Mayweather’s security team by calling them juiceheads.

Conor McGregor Touches Floyd Mayweather’s Head

As he walked around the ring/stage, McGregor rubbed Floyd’s bare head and insulted him. Mayweather laughed and kept playing with his phone, but this was the first time either man has touched the other–aside from accidental contact–during the four-day world press tour.

Floyd Mayweather is Fresh Out of Material

When it was Floyd Mayweather’s chance on the mic, it didn’t take long to detect he was struggling to find new material. This is example No. 1,009,383 that this tour went on far too long.

Floyd Mayweather’s Animated Slur

Most of the world press tour has been incendiary and inappropriate. For the most part, Floyd McGregor has been more guilty than that of Conor Mayweather. On last Friday, Mayweather was the one making the most insulting and hate-filled attention.

McGregor Wins the Day, But Crowd is Tired of This Stuff

Thanks a lot to FloydMayweather’s slur, the pro-McGregor fans and Money’s lack of fresh material, this was easily a Conor McGregor win. That is said, I’ve never been so glad to see a press event end than I was when Mayweather, McGregor and their entourages left the area on last Friday.

The Fight Should Be Held in London, UK

Don’t blame the crowd or the fans in charge of setting up the arena for the event. They did a solid job, and that’s why I accept this fight would be even more of a demonstration if it were held in the London,UK. They are the kings of pomp before the battle, and the grandiose style would be a perfect fit for this novelty fight.

What’s Left for Showtime PPV All-Access

After four days of press tour, one has to wonder, does the folks still have an demand to see these two men do anything else but fight? We’ll find out soon as Showtime PPV All-Access begins on July 28 on Showtime PPV.

The truth is that , fans are paying for what they have witnessed for free during a press tour that began in Los Angeles on lastTuesday , went to Toronto on last Wednesday, made a forgettable pit stop in New York on the last Thursday before finally, forcefully concluding last Friday in London, UK.

UFC President Dana White says Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather have not gone too far with ‘verbal warfare’

Mayweather and his team seemed to have about enough of McGregor’s talk, which has dipped into an awkward racial zone, in Brooklyn. Mayweather castigate McGregor for some of his comments to the mass media lastThursday night, saying he should not disrespect black people in that way.

Mayweather uses homophobic affront in tirade against McGregor

McGregor might have dipped a toe across the line of what’s fair with some possibly racist comments directed toward Mayweather during their insult-fest this week.

But Floyd Mayweather stepped fully across that line during the final stop of their world press tour on Friday at the SSE Arena in London, using a homophobic affront during a long, profanity-laced tirade in a make-shift boxing ring.

Believe It Or Not- Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is just over a month away;World press tour kicks off

The two fighters have been trading barbs on social media for months as anticipation for a fight that has been hailed by former UFC fighter Brendan Schaub as “the biggest sporting event of our lifetimes” continues to heighten.

The first stop of a world press tour to promote the event was held at Staples Centre in Los Angeles today.

PPV Show- McGregor vs Mayweather Live

McGRegor made an uncharacteristic move by arriving on stage first. Notorious for being late to UFC press conferences, the Irishman walked boldly on stage in a three-piece suit before posing for photographs. Check out the detail on his pinstripe.

Well, that was … something. Only 47 more days until we can all put this behind us. A parting tip for Showtime ahead of the remaining tour stops: why turn off McGregor’s microphone during Mayweather’s sermon? I’d understand if the trash talk was the side course per usual, but don’t hold out on us when events like today’s are effectively the main course.

MAYWEATHER vs MCGREGOR Los Angeles Press Conference Full Video

Mayweather emerged through the crowd soon after with his entourage, but one Irish fan scored an early point for their man by throwing an Irish flag at the boxing champ.
The two faced off on stage and adopted different approaches. McGregor was playful, talking and moving. Mayweather stayed still and stony-faced as the mind games began.

Unfortunately this was a boxing press conference, so unlike UFC events where president Dana White immediately asks for questions, we were forced to wait for the suits to make long-winded statements. Fittingly, they were booed.
But the crowd exploded as White introduced McGregor — and the two division champ immediately targeted Mayweather’s dress sense.

The fans didn’t have to be convinced. They were already sold.

They roared when McGregor entered the arena and walked on the stage. They booed when Mayweather did the same.

Maybe they weren’t certain of a McGregor victory, but they looked and sounded as if they believed that the charismatic Irishman has a chance. Or perhaps they wanted to believe he has chance. Whatever misguided emotion was in their hearts, it was strong enough to make them ditch work to back their man at a news conference. Similar turnouts are expected later this week at stops in Toronto, New York and London.

Both fighters later spoke to reporters back-stage. Mayweather said he wasn’t bothered by the pro-McGregor crowd. “Popularity has nothing to do with what we have in our bank accounts,” Mayweather said. “I always chose fortune over fame.”
McGregor’s press conference was gatecrashed by Mayweather’s father. “You ain’t ever had a pro-fight in your life … you going to get the f*** beat out of you,” Floyd Sr said.


Earlier, UFC president Dana White completed interviews backstage and Aloe Blacc performed for the fans in attendance while they waited for the key participants to arrive.

What are the rules of the fight?

The fight will be held under boxing rules, presenting a huge challenge for mixed martial artists McGregor as he faces off against one of the greatest defensive boxers in history.

Adding to McGregor’s challenge, the fighters will be using 10-ounce boxing gloves instead of the smaller UFC gloves and he will not be allowed to use the leg kicks or takedowns that are used in mixed martial arts.

McGregor will weigh in at 154 pounds, UFC president Dana White told ESPN.

Mayweather confirms this is his last

‘I’m not the same fighter I was 21 years ago or 10 years ago,’ he says. ‘I understand that. But I have that fighter’s mentality.
Training camp is gruelling. I can’t do it anymore. I’m just working hard every day. This has to be my last one.
‘After taking a couple of years off, I was okay, but then we made this fight happen. I know this is it. Deep in my heart, I can’t [go on].’
