Just when it appeared the fight might be stopped, Gastelum was saved by the final bell.Adesanya landed 135 strikes, almost twice Gastelum’s total of 68.“I was ready for a five-round war, but it is not what I expected,” Adesanya said. “… I will say Kelvin did well to land the jab. That was unexpected and I was surprised to let him get that jab.”Poirier’s possible reward for his win is a chance to face undefeated Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.The retirement of Conor McGregor, who was the sport’s most popular fighter, leaves a void in UFC. McGregor held featherweight and lightweight titles but hasn’t won a fight since November 2016.Nurmagomedov said this month he would like to fight again in September, two months after the end of his Nevada State Athletic Commission ban for his team’s brawl with McGregor’s team following their fight in October.“Right now I’m the champ,” Poirier said, adding he hoped Nurmagomedov could return for a unifying fight that would remove the interim tag on his title.“We’ve got a belt to fight for,” Poirier said.Poirier’s hope was shared by UFC President Dana White. When asked about a possible unification bout following Poirier’s win, White said “Yes, that’s the fight.”For now, the interim title is worth celebrating for Poirier.

first_img0Shares0000LAS VEGAS, Nevada October 17 – Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died after his car was catapulted into the air in a fiery, 15-car crash at the Las Vegas 300 IndyCar series finale.The 33-year-old Englishman on Sunday died from injuries he received after he became caught up in the grisly pile-up, his car spinning into the catch fenching around the track. Several cars were sent flying while others careered down the track in flames, littering the track with smoking debris.“IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries,” IndyCar chief executive Randy Bernard said.“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today.”Wheldon’s fellow drivers had been informed of his death shortly before Bernard made his announcement.“IndyCar, its drivers and owners, have decided to end the race. In honor of Dan Wheldon, the drivers have decided to do a five-lap salute in his honor,” Bernard said.The crash started at Turn 2 of the 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) Las Vegas oval on the 12th lap of the race.The chain-reaction appeared to begin when Wade Cunningham’s car swerved and J.R. Hildebrand drove over Cunningham’s car. Hildebrand went airborne while Cunningham went into the wall.“It was debris everywhere across the whole track, you could smell the smoke, you could see the billowing smoke on the back straight from the car,” said Danica Patrick, who was in her final race as a fulltime IndyCar driver before heading to NASCAR stock car racing.“There was a chunk of fire that we were driving around. You could see cars scattered,” added Patrick, who was among the drivers who predicted a chaotic race given the high speeds in qualifying and the jam-packed 34-car field.Wheldon, traveling behind the cars that initiated the chaos, couldn’t avoid the crashes in front of him.“I saw two cars touch each other up in front of me and then I tried to slow down, couldn’t slow down,” Canadian Paul Tracy said. “Then Dan’s car, from what I saw in the videos, came over my back wheel and over top of me. Just a horrendous accident.”Tracy had reported that a medical team was frantically attending Wheldon before the driver was airlifted to hospital.The official confirmation of his death came some two hours after the race was stopped.Despite two Indianapolis 500 triumphs — including this year’s race in May — and his 2005 series title, Wheldon hadn’t been able to secure a full-time IndyCar ride this season, so he was racing from the back of the field in pursuit of a $5 million prize offered by IndyCar to a non-series driver who could win the finale.The crash ended Australian Will Power’s bid to overtake Dario Franchitti and claim the series title.Power sat stunned in his car for some time and was later sent to hospital to be checked out because of back pain.Hildebrand and Pippa Mann were also hospitalized. Mann was treated for a burn on her right hand while Hildebrand was said to be awake and alert but under observation after complaining of dizziness.“I’ll tell you, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Ryan Briscoe said. “The debris we all had to drive through the lap later, it looked like a war scene from ‘Terminator’ or something.”IndyCar’s last previous fatality was the death of driver Paul Dana at the Homestead circuit in Florida in 2006 in a crash during pre-race practice.Scotland’s Franchitti, who secured his third straight series crown and fourth overall, could be seen weeping and fighting for composure in his cockpit as the drivers formed up for the tribute laps — with Wheldon’s number 77 the only one displayed on the giant scoreboard tower.Wheldon, who moved to the United States in 1999, got his first IndyCar series ride in 2002 and his first victory the next season.In 2005, he became the first Englishman since the great Graham Hill in 1966 to win the Indianapolis 500.This year at Indianapolis he was racing a distant second to Hildebrand, who lost control and nipped the wall on the last lap, allowing Wheldon to speed past for another triumph at the Brickyard.At the traditional post-race photo opportunity, Wheldon was joined by his two-year-old son Sebastian and his wife, Susie, who held their son Oliver, who was then two months old.“What can you say? We’re going to miss him,” said Chip Ganassi, a team owner Wheldon once drove for. “Everybody in IndyCar died a little today.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgBrighton began 2016 with a loss – their first back-to-back defeat of the Championship season – as Wolves were 1-0 winners at the Amex. Connor Goldson put into his own net as his error proved costly to hand Kenny Jackett’s side a third successive win. The Seagulls, who have only taken one point over the festive season, dominated after the break, but Wolves defended stoutly to claim a third successive clean sheet.Brighton went into the clash having failed to score for over five hours and boss Chris Hughton freshened up his front line by recalling strikers Bobby Zamora and James Wilson.Israeli international Tomer Hemed dropped to the bench and the on-loan Rajiv van La Parra was ineligible to face parent club Wolves.Beram Kayal put an early shot wide for the Seagulls before Albion goalkeeper David Stockdale saved a goal-bound shot from Benik Afobe with his legs following a powerful run by James Henry.Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme came to his side’s rescue by tipping a fierce shot from Wilson over the bar in the 15th minute.Wanderers, unchanged for the third match in a row, threatened when Dominic Iorfa set up Afobe, but his angled shot was held comfortably by Stockdale.Brighton had failed to keep a clean sheet at the Amex since October and their defensive frailties surfaced again when defender Goldson gifted Wolves the lead with a 32nd-minute own goal.Wolverhampton-born Goldson, 23, standing in for the injured Gordon Greer for the second time, stuck out a leg to divert a low cross from Jordan Graham into his own net at the near post.Wolves threatened again when Stockdale parried a low drive from Henry.At the other end Wilson – the striker on loan from Manchester United who was physically sick on the pitch during the first half – ran dangerously into the area shortly after the break, but his low shot was saved by Ikeme.Central defender Lewis Dunk should have equalised moments later, but wastefully drove over from a pass by Goldson.Jamie Murphy also failed to make the most of an opening when he blazed over having been set up by Wilson.Wilson forced Ikeme to save smartly from his goal-bound shot after Hughton made his first change by introducing former Feyenoord striker Elvis Manu for the veteran Zamora.Wolves almost doubled their advantage when a rasping drive by Conor Coady was tipped over by Stockdale.Brighton piled on the pressure in the closing stages and defender Bruno Saltor was unlucky when his tremendous 20-yard drive came back off the crossbar.Dunk later had a goal-bound header brilliantly tipped over by Ikeme in stoppage time. 1 Brighton 0-1 Wolves: Own goal makes it back-to-back defeats for the Seagulls last_img read more

first_img Tony Chapron lashed out at Diego Carlos during Sunday’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain ⚠️ Stop scrolling and watch this video ⚠️Referee Tony Chapron kicks out at Diego Carlos and then sends him off in a moment of madness in Ligue 1… 😱— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) January 14, 2018 1 Carlos was shown a second yellow card, apparently for dissent, and the hosts were left baffled by the incident.“I received 20 SMS from all over the world telling me that this referee is a joke,” Kita told L’Equipe.“What do you want me to say to you? If I talk too much, I will be summoned by an ethics commission. We have no right to say anything.“It’s still scandalous to see that. We give a red card to a player who did nothing. Where are we? He has to go back to school.“Chapron has to rest and get a massage, it works like that now, we cannot see him. I’m waiting for the green light, otherwise I’ll be killed. It’s amateurism.“Sincerely, I think he did not do it on purpose. I do not want to believe he did it on purpose.“At least, you apologise but you do not give a red card, it’s not serious.“We still have to find a solution, because there is a problem in all this.“It makes me laugh at the end. I have never seen that before.“He should be suspended for six months. If we did it, we would be banned for six months.”The bizarre exchange overshadowed a seventh straight win in all competitions for PSG, Angel Di Maria’s early goal enough to move them 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.“When a team fights each ball for 90 minutes and fights every action to counter the opponent, I think the team has demonstrated today that we can win a match like that too, in difficulty, in suffering,” PSG boss Unai Emery was quoted as saying by AFP.“It was different from a lot of matches. It’s a tough team that put a lot of pressure on us and the team kept their position to keep the ball with a lot of personality.“In the first half, our control was clearer, with the goal and two good chances.“But it’s true that in the second half, they pushed more and it was harder for us to overcome that pressure. But I think the win is deserved.” Nantes president Waldemar Kita has called for Tony Chapron to be banned for six months after the referee lashed out at Diego Carlos during Sunday’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain.The official aimed a kick at the Nantes defender while on the floor after the pair accidentally collided in injury time at the Stade de la Beaujoire.last_img read more

first_imgSteven Naismith says he would be in favour of Scotland playing their international matches away from Hampden after 2020.The Scottish FA’s lease on the stadium ends in three seasons’ time and a decision is still to be made on where games will be hosted.Naismith, who missed October’s World Cup qualifiers through injury, believes it could be financially beneficial to tour the best stadiums in the country instead of staying in Mount Florida or building a new ground.“There has been a few games when I thought the atmosphere [at Hampden] was incredible but I think it does need to be full,” he said. “It needs a great crowd to get it going and it is probably the spaces behind the goals that doesn’t have a great impact.“My dad and my grandparents wouldn’t thank me for saying it but I think if everything was right they should move and use the facilities that we’ve got.“If it worked financially and all the rest of it then you could use that money on a better system for creating great players.”Naismith, who was speaking as he helped charity Loaves and Fishes serve Christmas dinner to homeless people in Glasgow, also says it’s important the powers that be have Scotland’s best interests at heart when they make the final decision on their future home. “We’ve got some great stadiums that we could use,” he continued.“There are so many aspects to it, but you need the people who are in control of these stadiums to have Scottish football in the back of their mind rather than just having their own agenda.“That’s tough in football in general but if everything was lit right you could create a good system where you were using Pittodrie, the two Edinburgh clubs, Celtic, Rangers, even if it was back on grass Kilmarnock.“It’s something to look into.”last_img read more
