UFC 253 title: Adesanya expects ‘David and Goliath’ fight against Costa

first_imgReigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has labeled his title defense against next challenger, Paulo Costa as the biblical battle between David and Goliath, Sportinglife.ng reports. A bumper UFC 253 card was announced last month and will be headlined September 26 by Adesanya (19-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) and Costa (13-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) in what’s just the second time in the sport’s history two undefeated male fighters will square off for a belt. Costa’s size advantage has been a major talking point in the early buildup to this fight. Last week the 29-year-old posted a video to social media where he claimed he had just passed the 220-pound barrier. While he will need to cut weight before the fight, many are expecting his superior power to worry Adesanya. But when asked if Costa’s size is a concern, the Nigeria-born fighter made it clear he’s not at all bothered by it.Advertisement “Nope,” he said. “I’ve fought at heavyweight in boxing and kickboxing and I plan on fighting in heavyweight in MMA at some point. “Size makes a difference if you know how to use it. But they are always surprised when they step across the cage from me and they realise how long I am. They are always in for a rude awakening. I don’t know why people think it’s going to be a heavy factor. I’m used to this. “What better antagonist than this guy, who was undefeated, a KO artist, he looks the way he does, ballooned up. It’s like David and Goliath. I (expletive) this guy up, and it’s just spectacular. As they say: Someone’s 0 has got to go. It’s a beautifully set up story. You couldn’t write this (expletive). You could, but it’s real. Read Also: Ekundayo beats Louis Greene to defend IBF title“I think it’s great for me because of the aesthetics. I’m the skinny person, the little frail kid, and he looks like the perfect antagonist. He’s big, bulky, juiced to the f—ing gills and he’s a guy who beats everyone on the fence. So when I come in there with some Bruce Lee s— and f— him up, the casuals are going to feed off it. It means more eyes, more attention.

Cech eyeing Premier tilt

first_img “We have some young players, some new players who have never won the league, so it would be a great step forward for them to come and accomplish that.” Chelsea entered the international break with a 3-1 win at Norwich to move third in the Premier League standings, two points behind leaders Arsenal. The win at Carrow Road was the Blues’ first away from home in the top flight this term after a start to the campaign which has seen only flashes of their full potential. Next Mourinho’s men play a Cardiff side who have endured a fractious international break amid speculation over the future of boss Malky Mackay, before travelling to Gelsenkirchen for Tuesday’s Champions League Group E clash with Schalke. It was in Germany – in Munich, to be precise – that Chelsea won the Champions League and Cech is targeting further success in the competition. He added: “We know how sweet it is to win the European Cup, too, so if we could go far in that and really challenge for the title, then that would be great.” The goalkeeper is eager for a sustained title challenge after Chelsea fell short in recent years, with just one title since the end of Jose Mourinho’s first spell as boss in September 2007. “We haven’t won the Premier League for three years in a row, so I think it would be great to get that back,” Cech told Sport magazine. Petr Cech has high expectations as Chelsea return to Barclays Premier League action on Saturday with the summit in sight.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Fitness regime paying off – Chadli

first_img That run will be a huge test for Mauricio Pochettino’s team, but attacking midfielder Chadli expects the hard work their manager demands to bear fruit. “We have a strong squad with a lot of quality and players, so we can play all those games and compete in every competition,” the Belgium international said. “We know it has been a problem in the past, but we rotated quite a lot at the start of the season and did quite well so why not now? “We improved a lot as a team how to play together and you can see our fitness is very good. “We almost do not have injured players and you can see that we can fully play 90 minutes with the high tempo and that has helped us in big games.” Chadli is not expecting that intensity to drop off against Fiorentina, despite Thursday’s game being Tottenham’s 42nd competitive match of the season. The intensity of work Pochettino and his coaching staff demand has been key to managing that and, while the regime does not “kill” the players, Chadli says he and his colleagues are pushed hard in the gym and on the training field. It means this squad is fitter than any the former AGOVV Apeldoorn and Twente man has ever worked with, and he too has never felt so strong. Thursday’s Europa League last-32 first leg against Fiorentina is the first of six vital matches Spurs have to face over a 17-day period. As well as the return fixture in Florence and three Barclays Premier League matches, the north London side also have the little matter of the Capital One Cup final against rivals Chelsea on March 1. Press Association Tottenham’s fitness regime may be punishing, but it means Nacer Chadli and his team-mates approach a vital few weeks fitter than ever. “(Pochettino) says before we start (training) that we have to be sharp,” Chadli said. “He wants to make everyone sharp and be well trained. “We always train with GPS. They are looking at players. If they get tired, they can see it on the GPS. The amount we run, they can check everything. “You cannot cheat, or put the GPS on a cat. I’ve tried that!” Chadli made the last comment with a laugh, underlining the relaxed spirit within the camp ahead of what is a hectic, testing schedule. A trip to Wembley looms large, but he insists the players are only focused on the next match – the first leg of a tie against Fiorentina he knows will be tough. “They are a strong side who can play good football,” the 25-year-old said. “They are one of the best in Italy and they have quality players up front as well as in defence. “They are very organised and we have to play with a lot of tempo and to be strong at home to beat them because if not it will be difficult to go there and get something.” last_img read more

Rio 2016, the most perfect imperfect Games – IOC

first_imgBy Karolos GrohmannLAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) – The Rio de Janeiro Olympics may not have been perfect but organisers exceeded expectations given the political and economic situation in the South American country, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said yesterday.Rio, the first Olympic host city on the continent, had to grapple with a protracted political crisis, the worst recession in more than 80 years and a string of organisational problems due to a lack of cash.The run-up to the Games was an obstacle course for local organisers and the IOC had to put up hundreds of millions of dollars of its eventual contribution before the start of the Olympics to help out.The Games’ anti-doping programme was also affected by a lack of funding amid a widening Russian drugs scandal while venues were hit by problems including water quality in pools and a virtual absence of branding around the Olympic park due to issues with banner suppliers.“From an operational point of view everything worked,” the IOC’s Olympic Games executive director Christophe Dubi told reporters. “Were they perfect? No.“But with the results we can really take our hat off (to Rio organisers). It is amazing what they delivered considering their standpoint,” he said.Dubi said the IOC was satisfied with the Rio Games especially with athletes’ performances that yielded 100 world and Olympic records and brought several countries their first medals and with global coverage which beat past records.“We are right on target when you consider the money that was spent for these Games,” Dubi said.Rio was awarded the Games in 2009 amid Brazil’s booming economy at the time and a different set of expectations by the IOC before the political crisis and the sharp financial downturn changed organisers’ plans.They then had to deal with a daily barrage of questions and criticism regarding organisation, with empty seats in venues and unsold tickets marring the start of the Olympics.A lack of spectators was evident in even the most iconic venues during the 16-day event in August, including the Copacabana beach volleyball stadium on the famed Rio beach.“Someone called them the most perfect imperfect Games,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “It’s actually quite a good characterisation.”last_img read more

Students approve new bike campaign

first_imgStudents reacted positively Tuesday to the new “We are Considerate. We are USC” campaign, saying issues surrounding bikes need to be directly addressed.The new campaign “We are Considerate. We are USC” calls for Trojans to generally be more considerate, with a current focus on bike-related problems around campus.Photo courtesy of Katherine MontgomeryThe school introduced the campaign to the USC community through a mass email, a full-page advertisement in the Daily Trojan and a banner in front of Alumni Park. The signs on Trousdale Parkway noting the area where bikes must be walked during peak hours were replaced with larger signs bearing the “We are Considerate” logo and goals.Some students said they are glad the administration is working to address the issue.“USC needs to work it out because there is no getting rid of bikes,” said Andrew Chen, a sophomore majoring in business administration. “All in all, I’m glad they’re trying to actually do something about the problem.”Jasmine Wasserman, a sophomore majoring in communication, said changes in biker behavior have to come from individuals.“People have to be more careful,” Wasserman said. “Bikers are usually doing four things at once — it’s kind of scary.”Simon Moshkovich, a sophomore majoring in international relations (global business), said the increased enforcement of walk-your-bike zones will encourage students to follow rules.“I know I [walk my bike] when I see security around,” Moshkovich said. “The school looks like it’s taking a step in the right direction. It’s all you can hope for.”Undergraduate Student Government President Monish Tyagi said he was happy with the launch.“We definitely made a strong presence on campus,” Tyagi said. “I haven’t had enough time to gauge detailed student reaction, but in general, it definitely got people’s attention.”Tyagi said students he spoke to did not seem to completely understand the purpose of the campaign, but he feels that campaign awareness is the most important thing at this time.“Some people don’t immediately associate it with the bike and traffic issues on campus,” Tyagi said. “Hopefully it will grab people’s attention so they will understand more about the message behind the campaign and being considerate by biking safely.”Several students said they encountered many problems related to the large number of bicycles on campus.Liz Soriano, a sophomore majoring in communication, said bicyclists’ behavior endangers pedestrians.“There are these small spaces people try to ride their bikes through and I got hit by a passing [bike] the other day,” Soriano said. “It hurt pretty bad and it must have looked bad, because the guy behind him offered to chase the [bicyclist that hit me].”Students said they also want to see security issues addressed. Neil Tamashiro-Miyamoto, a sophomore majoring in kinesiology, recently had two bikes stolen in less than two weeks.“Bike theft is just as big a problem as accidents, if not bigger,” Tamashiro-Miyamoto said.Bari Golin-Blaugrund, a junior majoring in political science who works at the reception desk in Leavey Library, said parking issues should also be addressed.“We’ve had instances where [the Dept. of Public Safety] has come in to tell us they needed to confiscate bikes that were parked on the handicap rails,” Golin-Blaugrund said. “DPS should have the power to do what they need to because that sort of thing is just wrong.” Click here to listen to a podcast on the new campaign with Undergraduate Student Government President Monish Tyagi.last_img read more

HRI launches new campaign to boost racing engagement

first_img Submit StumbleUpon HRI gives racing the green light to take place behind closed doors March 19, 2020 Share Irish racing cancelled as Varadkar increases COVID-19 measures March 25, 2020 Related Articles Irish racing gets green light to resume in June May 15, 2020 Share As part of a new bid to boost interest in the sport, Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) has spearheaded a new television marketing campaign which is set to be broadcast across a number of Ireland’s major television channels. The new campaign is due to be led by HRI commercial and marketing director Paul Dermody, and will feature a number of key figures from the racing sector. Dermody told The Racing Post: “The key things we want to drive are interest levels and the profile of Irish racing and we want to enhance the experience of our consumers as well. We also want to drive attendance at the racecourse.“We have 26 racecourses which are all committed to marketing and celebrating their own fixtures and festivals but we need to drive this sport as a whole. “We felt it was the right time to update the visual identity and logo of HRI. We’ve come up with a very fresh new logo for HRI and that’s what we’re launching on Friday. From Monday, we’ll be rolling out our television campaign across all major channels.”The newest campaign is due to be entitled Every Racing Moment, and according to Dermody, will be a tough act to follow on from the Let Yourself Go campaign released in 2012 which featured Irish television and radio presenter Hector Ó hEochagáin.Dermody added: “The campaign message that underpins every advertisement we take forward from here will contain the words Every Racing Moment. “We recorded the footage at Galway and at the Curragh over the summer and there’ll be some famous faces in there. Everybody remembers the Let Yourself Go campaign so we’ve got some big boots to fill.”last_img read more
