#1 opportunity to win a world title. In 2013, OOrl von mary123 27.08.2019 10:52

TORONTO -- UFCs featherweight division has been a confusing place in 2016. Max Holloway might be the one to give it some clarity.Holloway (17-3) claimed UFCs interim featherweight championship Saturday by defeating former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis via TKO in the third round. The 145-pound bout headlined UFC 206 inside Air Canada Centre.Referee Yves Lavigne stopped the fight with 10 seconds remaining in the third round. Pettis (19-6) had fallen to a crouched position and could only cover up from punches.The win sets up a future meeting between Holloway and official titleholder Jose Aldo.We couldnt fight Aldo, so I started calling it Jose Waldo, hashtag Wheres Jose Waldo? Holloway said. [UFC 208] Brooklyn in February, lets get the f---ing real [title]! This is my ticket to Jose Waldo. You tell me when you find him.Holloway, out of Waianae, Hawaii, is now on a 10-fight win streak, third longest in UFC. He has not suffered a loss since a unanimous decision defeat to Conor McGregor in August 2013.It was actually McGregor who held up the weight class this year. The Irish star won the title last December by knocking out Aldo in 13 seconds and has since fought three times without making a defense. UFC was finally forced to take the belt from McGregor last month.Although McGregor (21-3) will likely point out that the next title fight will feature two men he beat, the 25-year-old Holloway has been nothing short of brilliant since the McGregor loss.Holloway picked his shots Saturday, showing a clear respect for Pettis knockout ability. Holloway played with the range in the first two rounds and eventually started to find timing on his right hand.He opened a cut over Pettis right eye in the second round and stuffed the Milwaukee natives attempts to get the fight to the ground. Holloway scored a couple of trip takedowns, but he refused to follow Pettis to the floor.The finish started with a spinning back kick to Pettis midsection, followed by a right hand to the head. Another kick landed to the body moments later, and Pettis appeared to be done.Pettis (19-6) would not have won the interim title even if he won the bout. The 29-year-old missed weight by three pounds Friday and said he will move back up to the 155-pound division.The first punch I threw, my right hand hit him on the top of the head and broke, Pettis said. Max Holloway is a beast. He stood with me and got the belt.Its too much to make the cut. They literally had to pull me out of the sauna. I have to go up. I cant make 145. The weight cut is too hard.Once considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world, Pettis has now lost four of his past five fights.Aldo (26-2) won the interim title by defeating Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 in July. Aldo was promoted to the official champion when McGregor was stripped. Alex Sandro Juventus Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. Andrea Barzagli Juventus Jersey . Wall made the comment in a speech to a Regina business crowd that included Lesnar. The U.S. wrestler and retired mixed martial artist says he was visiting his brothers farm in Saskatchewan and decided he wanted to hear what the premier had to say. http://www.juventusfcpro.com/Kids-Leonardo-Bonucci-Jersey/ . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Leonardo Spinazzola Jersey . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Daniele Rugani Juventus Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Lightweight world titlist Terry Flanagan will defend his belt against Orlando Cruz in a late addition to promoter Frank Warrens card on Nov. 26 at Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales, Warren announced Thursday.Flanagan (31-0, 12 KOs), a 27-year-old southpaw from England, will make his fourth title defense and fight for the third time this year. He will be boxing in Cardiff for the second consecutive fight. He won a shutout decision against former junior lightweight world titlist Mzonke Fana on July 16 but was not pleased with his performance.Im excited to get out there again and put in a big performance before getting the blockbuster fights that Frank has promised me next year, Flanagan said. Last time I fought in Cardiff, I wasnt happy with how I boxed, so it will be good to show the Welsh fans that Im a lot better than I showed against Fana.Also a southpaw, Puerto Ricos Cruz (25-4-1, 13 KOs), 35, is boxings first openly gay fighter. He is moving up from the junior lightweight division less than two months after notching a seventh-round knockout of Gabino Cota on Oct. 7.The fight with Flanagan will be Cruzs second opportunity to win a world title. In 2013, OOrlando Salido knocked him out in the seventh round in a vacant featherweight title fight in Las Vegas.dddddddddddd.Flanagan is hoping to win and move on to face bigger names next year.Franks delivered everything he promised. He got me a British title, a WBO European title and a WBO world title, Flanagan said. I got the opportunity to defend it in my own town [Manchester] and then defend it in someone elses backyard. I know Im the best lightweight in the division, and Im looking to get these big fights to prove it.Still, Flanagan said he is not going to downplay Cruz, who has won five fights in a row.I do what I need to get the win, but if I feel the stoppage is there, Ill go for it, Flanagan said. Cruz is a strong fighter and very dangerous and more than capable of causing an upset.Im out to prove a point and show everyone that Im world-class. [Jorge] Linares is seen as No. 1 in the division after beating [Anthony] Crolla, and it would be good to get that fight and do something that Crolla couldnt do to prove Im the best around. ' ' '
