UFC 200: Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar

first_imgLAS VEGAS, Nevada – UFC 200 is right around the corner, July 9th from the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Nevada. It is set to be the biggest card in UFC History because of a stacked card. We here at NEO Sports thought it would be a fun idea to break each match down one blog at a time. Because the card is so loaded we felt each match needed more than a few sentences. So over a 12 day stretch, you will see a breakdown of all 12 GIGANTIC matches. Enjoy!Today’s matchup is Jose Aldo vs Frankie EdgarJose Aldo is one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet, and also in the entire history of MMA. Aldo is regarded as having some of best takedown defense in all of MMA, as he has defended 91% of his opponents’ takedown attempts. Aldo is also renowned for regularly winning his fights using little more than the fundamentals of Muay Thai. He employs an array of damaging knees, kicks and punches, as well as agile footwork and slick head movement. His leg kicks demonstrated in his fights against Urijah Faber, Ricardo Lamas and Frankie Edgar. Aldo has both the most wins and knockouts in UFC and WEC featherweight history, has landed a total of 691 significant strikes in the UFC and the WEC, and holds the record for the longest winning streak in UFC, WEC, Strikeforce and Pride featherweight history, with fifteen consecutive victories. It was a dominant run that ended on December 12, 2015 at UFC 194 when he lost the fight against Conor McGregor via knockout in 13 seconds with only one punch into the first round, resulting in his first defeat in over ten years. If Aldo is going to rebound from that crushing defeat, he will have to do it against one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, Frankie The Answer Edgar. Aldo does hold a victory of the former UFC Lightweight champion Edgar.However, the answer holds numerous big wins himself. Edgar has beaten former world champions Sean Sherk, B.J. Penn (x3), Urijah Faber and top featherweight contender Chad Mendes. Edgar is currently ranked as the #2 featherweight in official UFC rankings. He is no joke, and won’t be a walk through for the former champ Aldo.This match will be held at featherweight, just as their first one was. It is also for the Interim UFC Featherweight Championship as current champion Conor McGregor seems to have forgotten about his title, and natural weight class.Look for Edgar to push the action but Aldo to return to form and reclaim his title with a split decision victory.You can follow Vince McKee on Twitter at VinceTheAuthor Vince McKee Related TopicsFrankie EdgarJose AldoUFC 200last_img read more

Japan’s female curlers using tourney as springboard

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Japan’s women’s curling team competes against Kazakhstan during the 2017 Asian Winter Games on Sunday in Sapporo. Japan won 17-3. | KYODO LS Kitami, also representing Japan at the Asian Games, won the women’s nationals for the past two years but is reeling from a failed title defense this month against Chubu Electric Power in the final. The two sides will meet in September for the women’s Olympic berth with Japan guaranteed to appear at its sixth straight Olympic Games.“We lost in the final, but I didn’t want to dwell on it so I’ve been training with a refreshed mindset. I could really focus for a week after the nationals,” said women’s skip Satsuki Fujisawa on Saturday following Japan’s opening-day win over Qatar.The 25-year-old won four straight nationals at Chubu Electric Power before she moved to LS Kitami in a bid to appear at the Olympics, and things were looking bright as she guided Japan to the silver medal at the world championships last March with her new team.But a failure to reach the final at the Pacific Asia Championships saw her team miss this year’s world championships, and she was dealt her latest setback by her former team.“This (Asian Winter Games) is the last tournament of the season, but the next season starts early in September, so I have to make good use of this occasion,” she said. “There are strong teams here like China and South Korea, and hopefully it helps us gradually build toward our peak for the new season.”Mari Motohashi, the captain of Japan’s delegation to Sapporo, appeared at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics and is ready to make the regional meet a valuable chance to further the bond within team.“What we mustn’t forget is to trust the team even when we all want to improve as individuals. Improved individuals do not mean a better team,” she said. “This has been a season in which we had to learn that the foundation of everything is to believe ‘we can win playing in this team together.’ ““I know things don’t get any more difficult the season after winning the nationals. (But) as a team of adults, I believe we do need mental stability.”The 30-year-old, who made her Olympic debut at the age of 17, is willing to lead by example.“We’re made up of members who have and haven’t been to the Olympics, but it’s good to have the fear of spending a season on the edge, of not knowing whether we can go to the Olympics.“Members, including me, know the satisfaction (of success) that can come after that so I’d like to guide them there, but I also will bear in mind we’re all on the same starting line.” GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES KEYWORDScenter_img 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, LS Kitami, Satsuki Fujisawa, Mari Motohashi, 2017 Asian Winter Games, SC Karuizawa RELATED PHOTOS SAPPORO – Both Japanese curling teams at the Asian Winter Games have their sights firmly set on the Pyeongchang Olympics in a year’s time, but this tournament could be bigger for the women after their recent loss in the nationals.There is a chance of five-time men’s defending national champion SC Karuizawa Club not qualifying for Pyeongchang, but they have some margin for error.

Be Bear Aware: Take Action Now To Prevent Conflicts Later

first_imgSelinger also outlined what to do in the event of a bear wandering into a residential neighborhood: “The first thing to do is to make sure everybody’s safe, get everybody into a safe area inside the house preferably, you can try to scare the animal away by doing it in a safe manor by making noises, you know going outside and trying to move the animal out of the area, only do that if you can do it in a safe manor, I need to emphasize that. But then you should also contact the Department of Fish & Game and we will make a site visit to see if there’s anything that we can see that might have brought the animal to the area.”  Kenai Peninsula residents have reported close encounters with bears starting around mid-April. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reminds Alaskans that this time of year you should always be bear aware. Local wildlife biologist Jeff Selinger says Kenai Peninsula residents should take time to clean up any bear attractants on their properties: “Yeah there is a lot of different things that people can do, they can start by just going out and looking around the yard or in the neighborhoods or the wood lots around their house because there could be things that accumulated over the winter, there could even be carcasses from animals that died during the winter. Just check around, be careful while you’re doing it, clean up anything that might attract bears into your neighborhood, mainly garbage issues or items that have a lot of odor to them.”  Bears are already being seen in Anchorage and surrounding areas and the DF&G suggests residents bring in bird feeders, remove or secure trash, dog food – anything that might seem tasty to a hungry bear. The local Alaska Department of Fish and Game number to report bear sightings or incidents is 262-9368.

CONCACAF cancels women’s tournament in Nicaragua due to violence

SAO PAULO,  (Reuters) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) cancelled its Under-17 women’s championship on Sunday after political violence spread across the host nation Nicaragua. “CONCACAF determined that to guarantee the safety of the delegations, and all participants and fans, the cancellation will apply to all matches and events and take immediate effect,” the ruling body said in a statement. Only six of the 12 group games had been played but four days of violent street protests against changes in social security left at least six people dead. The tournament serves as a qualifier for the Under-17 World Cup and CONCACAF said it would rule on qualification procedures at a later date.

Du Plessis ‘big fan’ of scrapping toss in tests

first_imgGALLE, Sri Lanka,  (Reuters) – The idea of scrapping the traditional coin toss prior to test matches has found a “big fan” in South Africa captain Faf du Plessis who believes it would help reduce home advantage and bring more balance. The International Cricket Council, the world governing body of the sport, discussed the possibility in a meeting in May but decided to continue with what has been a ritual since the first test between Australia and England in 1877.“I’m a big fan of taking away the toss,” du Plessis said after his team were beaten inside three days by Sri Lanka in the opening match of the two-test series on Saturday.“I think even in South Africa you’ll still prepare the conditions the way you prepare them now, but you just make sure that you bring some balance.” The merit of the toss has been debated as a need to reduce home advantage that often results in host nations rolling out pitches doctored to favour their players in what tends to end up as one-sided encounters.In Galle too, Sri Lanka won the toss and unleashed their spinners who claimed 17 of the 20 South African wickets as the visitors managed only 126 and 73 in their two innings before surrendering on a turning track.“In home conditions teams will still win the majority of the games, but you still do even it out a little,” du Plessis said. “I think over the last two or three years away-records have definitely gone down, and games are finishing a lot sooner than they used to.”On a pitch that offered considerable turn and bounce for the slow bowlers, Sri Lanka’s first innings lead of 161 proved decisive as South Africa simply crumbled in the fourth innings on a deteriorating track.“When I started playing test cricket, 400s and 500s were happening quite regularly,” du Plessis said. “So I’m not just speaking about subcontinent conditions. “In South Africa games hardly reach the end of day four anymore. I think that’s one of the ways you can make sure that balance is a little better.”Former Australia captains Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh have backed a move to scrap the toss, while West Indies pace great Michael Holding also felt it would encourage an even contest between bat and ball.last_img read more
