#1 humiliation at home have dwindled with the decision by con von mary123 28.08.2019 08:27

Tim Kennedy is looking forward to resuming his fighting career at UFC 205 on Nov. 12 -- even if hes not expecting much profit in doing so.Kennedy (18-5) is scheduled to face former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans in a middleweight bout at Madison Square Garden this month. It will mark Kennedys first appearance since September 2014.The 37-year-old has been focused on other interests and reached a conclusion that he would only return to the cage under special circumstances. A bout against a former champion on arguably the biggest card in UFC history fit that description.After Nov. 12, if theyre not saying, Your next fight is against [middleweight champion]?Michael Bisping, who I smashed, then I dont know, Kennedy said. I cant even imagine the fight that would bring me back in again.It took Madison Square Garden, on the biggest fight card in MMA history, against a former light heavyweight champion, perennial contender, coming to a new weight class, in a state they just legalized MMA for the first time, for me to come back -- with the potential of, Win here, move into title contention. If it took that much to get me back here in the first place, it sure as hell will take a big, shiny belt for me to stay.Kennedy is confident a title fight -- and bigger paydays -- are around the corner should he defeat Evans at UFC 205. He has history with Bisping, having beaten him convincingly in a 2014 five-round fight.Until then, Kennedy says UFC 205 is essentially an investment in his future. After paying taxes, training expenses and pricey New York travel costs, the veteran estimates hell walk away with very little cash after the event.[The UFC] actually had a tax attorney contact us to say, Just wanted to warn you guys, heres some tax documents you need to start filling out, Kennedy said. I rented a house in Albuquerque [New Mexico, to train at Jackson-Wink MMA]. Im paying $5,000 medicals. Im paying coaches, management, gym fees, recovery costs, cryotherapy.Ill probably be a wash for this fight camp in money. Think about that for a minute.Despite the revelation, Kennedy says hes not necessarily trying to cause waves, just stating the facts. Hes known as one of the most outspoken fighters in the sport, particularly when it comes to issues like fighter pay and performance-enhancing drug use, but says its something he doesnt try to force. He also made it clear the UFC has never tried to punish him for it.The UFC is in an interesting transitional period, after announcing it had been sold to entertainment agency WME-IMG for $4 billion in July. Kennedy says hes optimistic the sport is close to a very positive turn for the fighters involved.The sport is at an opportunity in the very near future to make a difference and be something really significant, special and fantastic, Kennedy said. To see [athletes] lives be sustained at a [financial] level thats not embarrassingly humiliating, were close to that corner. I hope we take it and I hope Im there to take this sport around that corner.Im sure as s--- not in this sport for the money because its not there yet, but it will be. Were close. Conor McGregor has made huge waves in changing what the realization of what somebody can make, and before him it was Jon Jones and Ronda Rousey. We know the potential is there for earning. Were going to get it, but were not there yet.Kennedys disclosed purse for his last fight, a decision loss to Yoel Romero in Las Vegas, was $70,000. He said he and Jackson-Wink teammate Donald Cerrone have game planned ways to reduce expenses.Of course, his current focus is on Evans, but its no secret his sights are very much set on a championship fight. Because as he clearly put it, his appearance at UFC 205 is not about money.We have to get extra rooms in New York. You know how much a room in New York is -- how much a flight to New York is, Kennedy said. [Cerrone] is going to be flying Greg Jackson out, Im going to fly out [striking coach] Brandon Gibson. Were trying to, economically between the two of us, absorb the financial impact from the aspect of New York.I dont want to tell anybody what to think. Thats not ever what Ive done. Im going to tell you how it is and you be a smart, intelligent person and interpret what Im saying. You make your own opinions. I dont want to tell a fan what to think. This is just the truth of the sport. This is the truth about what Im making. The expenses [involved], people dont understand. Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey . Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in each victory. The Flyers recorded a 5-0 win in Ottawa on Nov. 12 and then earned a 5-2 home decision on Nov. 19. The Flyers have claimed three straight and four of the last five encounters with the Sens overall and Philly has won two in a row and three of its past four tests in Canadas capital city. Laurie Boschman Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. http://www.jetsauthentic.com/authentic-dmitry-kulikov-jets-jersey/ . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Jack Roslovic Jersey . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. Teemu Selanne Jets Jersey . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. MINNEAPOLIS -- With a new position coach, a couple of junior-college transfers in the starting lineup and another as a key backup, Minnesotas offensive line has undergone a significant change in identity.The primary focus, buoyed by an intense offseason of work in the weight room, for the Gophers in 2016 was to present more of a punishing group of blockers to help restore the power in the running game. Road graders was the way coach Tracy Claeys colorfully described the style of players desired up front.Their performance in the opener was a promising start. Quarterback Mitch Leidner wasnt sacked in the game, and the Gophers rushed for touchdowns on all four trips inside the 20-yard line.There were Oregon State players falling over the place, Leidner said, so it was good to see the o-line knocking people on the ground.Senior right tackle Jonah Pirsig led the way with the pancake blocks. He was even singled out by the coaches during the film review of the 30-23 victory.Its always fun to be shown for doing good things. Its never fun to be shown doing bad things, Pirsig said. So I think some of the other guys kind of saw that, and they want to be that guy too. So hopefully theyll have a clip from all five of us on the offensive line this coming week.Theres more motivation, too, in the form of a cup-shaped trophy new offensive line coach Bart Miller has initiated for the player collecting the most knockdowns. At the end of the season, hell get his name on it.Its sitting down in our meeting room right now, Pirsig said. It kind of keeps guys hungry.After an overall uneven performance against Oregon State, Minnesota will have eight days between games before hosting Indiana State on Saturday.We have to come out right away and step on the gas. Facing an FCS opponent, we have to prepare the same way we would for a Big Ten school. I think in the past some of those teams havent been taken as seriously as they should, Pirsig said. We have to treat it just the way we would Ohio State or Michigan, so that we dont end up like some of the tteams that got upset in week one.dddddddddddd Its going to feel good regardless, but its going to feel a lot better if we beat them by 60.Here are some key angles to know about the game:THE VISITORSIndiana State, best known for the basketball program that produced NBA star and Hall of Fame forward Larry Bird from the 1979 NCAA runner-up team, made the FCS playoffs in 2014 out of the super-competitive Missouri Valley Conference. The Sycamores, who finished 5-6 last year, beat Butler 41-25 in their season opener.ONE LEVEL UPIndiana State beat an FBS opponent as recently as 2014, rival Ball State, but the all-time record against teams currently in the Big Ten is 0-15. That includes losses at Minnesota in 1989 and 1993.ONE LEVEL DOWNThe last loss by the Gophers an FCS team was in 2011 to North Dakota State, but the opportunities for humiliation at home have dwindled with the decision by conference athletic directors to stop scheduling FCS foes to boost the leagues overall strength of schedule and bids for spots in the College Football Playoff. Minnesota previously put South Dakota State on the books for the 2019 season opener, but thats the only such game left.ROOKIE STARSFour true freshmen played for the Gophers last week. Defensive end Taiyon Devers had two sacks and two forced fumbles. Wide receiver Tyler Johnson, who went to Minneapolis North High School just five miles west of the university, caught three passes for 31 yards and provided a key block on Leidners first rushing score.Hes already made a ton of growth from our first throwing session in the summer, Leidner said. I would have never been able to guess that he would be able to play this year.INJURY REPORTWide receiver Rashad Still (shoulder) will miss the next month, but wide receiver Eric Carter (ankle), running back Shannon Brooks (foot) and tight end Brandon Lingen (shoulder) could all return on Saturday after sitting out the opener.
