    Perennial middleweight contender Robert Whittaker is set to make his return to the UFC Octagon in April against recent title challenger Paulo Costa. ‘The Reaper’ and ‘Borrachinha’ will headline a UFC Fight Night card on April 17th, and the highly anticipated clash will probably decide the next middleweight contender. ‘Bobby Knuckles‘ defeated Jared Cannonier at UFC 254, stacking up two consecutive wins over top contenders.

But the former kingpin doesn’t intend to campaign or force for a rematch. He is content to wait for his turn. Adesanya is set to move to light-heavyweight as he...
    Lori Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli’s request to spend the rest of his prison sentence in the family’s mansion was reportedly denied. The judge ruled that there was no “extraordinary or compelling reason” for Giannulli to spend his sentence at home, according to a report published Tuesday by People magazine. Mossimo Giannulli’s Request for Early Release is Denied by Judge​ https://t.co/FRBF5WvBkK — People (@people) January 26, 2021 “Giannulli is not entitled to a modification of his sentence because he has not demonstrated an ‘extraordinary and compelling’ reason warranting his release,” Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton wrote in his order, according to People magazine. “Although the Court recognizes the danger associated with COVID-19 and the particular risk of transmission in penitentiary facilities, the fear of COVID-19 alone, without more, is insufficient to warrant release.” (RELATED: Mossimo Giannulli Wants To Spend Rest Of His Prison Sentence At His Mansion, Prosecutors Say No) “Although...

    Domestic policy adviser Susan Rice detailed Tuesday, President Joe Biden’s attempt to fight systemic racism by highlighting “equity” policies advanced by the administration. “For too many American families, systemic racism and inequality in our economy, laws, and institutions still put the American dream far out of reach,” Rice said at the White House press briefing. Rice said Biden would sign multiple executive orders demanding a top-down review of government to expose and correct racial disparities. “We’ve hit the ground running to embed equity through the administration,” she said, noting Biden had signed executive orders to “redress systemic racism where it exists and to advance equity where we aren’t doing enough.” “Advancing equity is everybody’s job,” she said, noting that each federal government agency needed to place equity at the “core of their public engagement.” Susan Rice reminded reporters she is a descendant of Jamaican immigrants and enslaved Americans and a...
    From a wood-paneled library in his Boston mansion, new climate envoy John Kerry is talking the U.S. back into a leading role in global climate action, making clear the nation isn’t just revving up its own efforts to reduce oil, gas and coal pollution but that it intends to push everyone in the world to do more, too. Kerry’s diplomatic efforts match the fast pace of domestic climate directives by the week-old Biden administration, which created the job Kerry now holds. Those directives include a Biden order expected Wednesday spelling out how U.S. intelligence, defense and homeland security agencies should address the security threats posed by worsening droughts, floods and other natural disasters under global warming. At 77, Kerry is working to make a success out of the global climate accord that he helped negotiate in Paris as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state — and that he then saw...

    The nation’s top infectious diseases expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, recalled his stunned reaction when he heard President Donald Trump make his infamous statement bizarrely suggesting that injecting disinfectant could be an effective treatment for the coronavirus. Trump’s deranged, rambling discussion that pondered shining UV light inside patients and injecting them with disinfectants ignited a torrent of backlash for spreading harmful misinformation — and prompted Trump to disappear from the White House coronavirus task force briefings for weeks. Yesterday, on CBS’ Face the Nation, Fauci’s counterpart, Dr. Deborah Birx, was asked about her private thoughts in that infamous moment. She ducked the question and said she had pushed back on Trump at the time by telling him those ideas were “not a treatment.” On Erin Burnett OutFront on Monday evening, the CNN host asked Fauci about the misinformation that was polluting the Trump White House messaging on the pandemic. “So let me ask you, you’ve spoken out now, I...
    UFC fan-favorite Nate Diaz took to Twitter and sounded off on the lightweight match-up that took place at UFC 257. All eyes were on the main event as Dustin Poirier came out victorious over Conor McGregor.

The two were supposed to scrap at UFC 230, however, the fight never made it past the face-off stage. The reasoning behind the fight being scrapped wasn’t explicitly clear to the fans and...

    Twitter launched a pilot program Monday that has users flag tweets they believe are misleading and write notes to provide context. The project, called Birdwatch, is initially offered in the United States, the social media firm announced in a blog post.

Their notes will initially not be visible on Twitter for users outside of the pilot group but will be visible on the Birdwatch site.

    Twitter has launched its Birdwatch program, meant to address misinformation on the platform by allowing users to fact-check tweets, the company announced Monday. Users in the pilot program, which will only include about 1,000 users in the US to start, will eventually be able to add notes to tweets to provide context. For now, users participating in the pilot can write notes on individual tweets, but the notes won’t be publicly visible on Twitter itself, only on the public Birdwatch website. Pilot users can also rate notes submitted by other participants in the program there. Here’s an example of what a tweet with the Birdwatch notes would look like: An example of what tweets with Birdwatch notes would look like.Image: Twitter “We believe this approach has the potential to respond quickly when misleading information spreads, adding context that people trust and...

Approved Birdwatch contributors will then be able to select tweets with misinformation and append their own notes, similar to a fact-checking website. For now, the fact checks will live on a dedicated Birdwatch site, but Twitter says the goal is to eventually integrate them directly into tweets “when there is consensus from a broad and diverse set of contributors.” Twitter...

    HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwe’s public services are paralyzed as the government ordered a near shutdown of operations to minimize the spread of COVID-19 amid a spike in infections and deaths. The southern African country is on a tight lockdown imposed in early January and last week the government ordered that only 10% of its employees should report for work to reduce transmission of the coronavirus.

    Nicknamed ‘Sweethands’, Caleb Plant is one of the most legitimate threats for the active 168 pounders in boxing. The IBF super middleweight champion has run through the division with 20 wins (12 KOs) in just six years. He will face Caleb Truax next on January 30 before turning attention towards the other elite champions likely Billy Joe Saunders, Canelo Alvarez, or David Benavidez. Meanwhile, Truax is another such veteran who has been a prime super middleweight puncher for a long time. So, he possesses a serious threat to Caleb Plant’s dominance. However, ‘Sweethands’ is still the favorite and has recently showcased his abilities ahead of the fight. He has recently posted a brief clip on Instagram from a sparring session. It seems the 28-year-old is working on sleek upper-cuts. If he puts the same to display on fight night, it can be trouble for Truax. Read More | Manny Pacquiao...

    Following Dustin Poirier’s KO win over Conor McGregor at UFC 257, Jake Paul has brutally bashed the ‘Notorious’ on social media. ‘The Problem Child’ was calling the Irish fighter for a boxing fight and even revealed how much he was going to offer him, and how much he would offer him now. He also dropped a massive revelation and claimed that he was to fight McGregor on April 17. Ahead of UFC 257, Dana White ruled out this fight and paved the way for a UFC title journey to McGregor. However, things may just have changed given what transpired at the Etihad Arena on January 23. “April 17 guys I am fighting. It was supposed to be Conor McGregor, but we will see what happens. Stay tuned,” said Jake Paul. That’s not all. Paul further ridiculed Dana White for delivering a below-average stream and tagged Dustin Poirier as...
    MIKE TYSON welcomed Frank Bruno into his home with open arms, instead of clenched fists, to celebrate their reunion 31 years on from their undisputed heavyweight world title battle. In February 1989, with Iron Mike perhaps at his terrifying peak after recently demolishing an aging but all-time great Larry Holmes and Michael Spinks, Bruno went to Las Vegas for his second crack at gold. Mike Tyson and Frank Bruno boxed twice with the American former monster winning both world title clashes but remain friends The build-up was ferocious, the fight was even delayed after Tyson battered former opponent Mitch Green in a street brawl, slashing a gash into his eye and breaking his own hand. The Sky Original documentary that brought the two fighting icons back together captures how vastly different each Adonis was depicted leading up to the clash. On the mouth-watering press tour, Tyson said he could not...
    BOXING sensation Ryan Garcia has announced a blockbuster fight with WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. Preliminary talks over the shock bout began last weekend in the wake of Conor McGregor's stunning defeat at UFC 257.

Alongside a poster of the pair, Garcia wrote: "A dream turned reality. It’s an honour to share the Ring with @mannypacquiao. "I will always respect what you did in and out the ring. Here’s to the best Man Winning." It's currently unclear what weight the contest will take place at, with Garcia being a lightweight and Pacquiao a welterweight. Given Pacquiao's age, 42, it's likely Garcia will be moving up in weight rather than the Filipino dropping...

The pandemic and uneven global economic recovery has led to this problem cropping up in Asia, although other parts of the world have also been hit. Industry watchers said desperate companies wait weeks for containers and pay premium rates to get them, causing shipping costs to skyrocket. This affects everyone who needs to ship goods from China, but particularly e-commerce companies and consumers, who may bear the brunt of higher costs. In December, spot freight rates were 264% higher for the Asia to North Europe route, compared with a year ago, according to Mirko Woitzik, risk intelligence solutions manager at supply chain risk firm Resilience36....
    The biggest star in all of MMA is back tonight. ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor returns to the octagon to take on Dustin Poirier.

    Here are the opponents we think should be next for the winners at UFC 257. While there were plenty of fantastic performances at UFC 257, Dustin Poirier was without a doubt the biggest winner of the night. Poirier was able to get his revenge on Conor McGregor in the main event, defeating him via second-round TKO. The co-main event saw promotional newcomer Michael Chandler confirm that the hype was indeed real after he knocked out top lightweight Dan Hooker in just 2:30. While the preliminary card was a bit uneventful with all but one fight going to decision, the main card certainly made up for it. Four out of five bouts ended via stoppage, with Joanne Calderwood grabbing the lone decision victory over Jessica Eye. Now that the event is over and the bonuses have been handed out, let’s take a look at what’s next for the winners from Saturday’s...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) – After losing a fight with a safety regulator, Ford is now recalling 3 million vehicles with airbags made by Takata, the manufacture whose devices have been linked to at least 18 deaths in the United States. The move comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday rejected Ford’s argument that this version of the airbags didn’t need to be replaced. The recall centers on a defect in airbags made by Takata, a now-bankrupt Japanese manufacturer. Another version of the Takata airbag had a defect in the inflator that caused a number of the bags to explode, spraying shrapnel through the vehicle. In addition to the 18 deaths, more than 400 drivers or passengers have been injured, including being blinded or maimed. Recalls linked to the Takata airbags began in 2014, and, in aggregate, ultimately became the largest auto recall in history. Prior to this week’s...

    Michael Chandler had a successful night on his debut in the UFC at UFC 257 in the Etihad Arena. Following a successful debut against Dan Hooker, Michael Chandler has called out Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Boasting off his striking skills, Michael Chandler landed bombs on Dan Hooker, and in no time the referee had to wave off the contest. Although many favored ‘The Hangman’ to win, Chandler silenced his critics in style. That said, he has set his sight on the headlining superstar ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor alongside the other lightweight elites. In his maiden UFC post-fight interview, he said, “Conor McGregor, surprise, surprise, there is a new king in the lightweight division.

    It seems Nate Diaz has his next opponent in mind. A big part of the fallout from Dustin Poirier’s win over Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 257 has been what is next for the two individuals. Most assumed that Poirier would be in line to a fight for the UFC lightweight championship once again (whether Khabib Nurmagomedov returns or it’s for a vacant or interim strap). Meanwhile, one idea for McGregor’s next fight would be a long-awaited trilogy bout with Nate Diaz. But it seems Diaz wants to shake up those ideas — he appears to want to fight Poirier next. In a post on Instagram, Diaz put up a photo of him staring down Poirier at a UFC press conference a couple of years ago with an interesting caption.

    Conor McGregor is one of the best MMA fighters in the world. However, he wasn’t one tonight. Dustin Poirier exacted his revenge from almost 7 years ago and beat Conor in the second round of the UFC 257 main event. Despite the TKO loss, Conor spoke to Jon Anik in the Octagon after and gave a very candid look into his mindset after this setback. “It’s hard to overcome inactivity… The long calf kick was very good. The leg was dead, and then I just wasn’t as comfortable as I needed to be. It’s the inactivity, but Dustin is some fighter. We are in here.

    The Austrian government has presented a “six-pillar” national strategy to stop the spread of antisemitism in the country. The six pillar approach includes increased security for Jewish institutions, educational provisions, and the establishment of a centre to document incidents, as well as exchanging data on antisemitism with other European countries. EU minister Karoline Edtstadler said, according to Austrian tabloid Kronen Zeitung, that it is the responsibility of the government to combat antisemitism, “whether it comes from the left or from the right, whether it is imported antisemitism or home-grown”. Oskar Deutsch, president of the Jewish Community of Vienna (IKG), welcomed the announcement, while Katharina von Schnurbein, the European Commission’s antisemitism commissioner, called the new strategy ambitious. The government’s announcement comes after several attacks on Jews and Jewish buildings in 2020, including an attack on a rabbi in Vienna by a woman wielding a knife in November. The woman is said to...
    When Conor McGregor was on the come-up in the UFC, laying the groundwork for what would become the most financially successful fighting career in MMA history, he fought all the time. By the time he moved to 4-0 in the octagon, with a TKO of Dustin Poirier inside of two minutes in September 2014, he only had been competing for the top promotion for 17 months. Fifteen months after that, he flattened longtime featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo in 13 seconds to become the champion, moving to 7-0 with the UFC. In contrast, Sunday’s TKO loss to Poirier in the rematch that headlined UFC 257 marked just the sixth MMA bout for the 32-year-old McGregor since that December 2015 knockout over Aldo — with the lucrative boxing match against Floyd Mayweather mixed in.

    The City of London on Thursday decided to remove two statues representing the financial role of the UK in slavery. “The vision of (voting) members is that the removal and relocation of idols related to slavery is an important step in our journey towards a more inclusive and diverse city,” said Catherine, the city’s political leader. McKinnon, Reuters. Following the Black Lives Matter struggles in 2020, an executive committee was set up to fight racism. He particularly recommended the removal of statues of William Beckford and John Coss from the city’s seat, the Guildhall. William Beckford was mayor of London in the 18th century and the owner of thousands of slaves, exploited on his plantations in Jamaica. John Goss was a Member of Parliament and trader in the Atlantic slave trade in the early 1700s. Last year’s protests prompted UK officials to come up with measures to promote diversity, especially...

    Ultimate Fighting Championship has no problem handing out interim titles, particularly in the lightweight division. When Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from the lineup in early 2019, Dustin Poirier and Max Holloway went to war for the substitute belt. Prior to that, former 155-pound contender and “Snap City” mayor Tony Ferguson fought his division mate Kevin Lee for the interim lightweight belt when the then-champion, Conor McGregor, was cashing in his Floyd Mayweather lottery ticket in late 2017. So what is the problem before UFC 257? Nurmagomedov retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) following a submission win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 last October. Promotion president Dana White believes he can persuade the reigning lightweight champion to return sometime in 2021, but “The Eagle” insists that he will not return soon, if he ever will. With Gaethje ending, there is a good argument that McGregor and Poirier, who were also replaced...

The 155ers have been in limbo since Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement at UFC 254. However, he hasn’t relinquished the belt and is pondering postponing his retirement for one more fight.

Imagine what you and Conor would do in another f**king fight. Just saying. I’m just saying.” The UFC has grown a lot since the 2018 fight between Conor...

    UFC 257 is headlined by the sensational lightweight bout between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. However, the co-main event doesn’t have two slouches fighting. Michael Chandler will be making his highly-anticipated UFC debut. This debut is also coming against Dan Hooker, one of the most exciting fighters in the entire UFC. Former UFC title contender Chael Sonnen broke the fight down with former middleweight champion Michael Bisping on ESPN, and gave an interesting prediction for the fight. He picked ‘The Hangman’ to win the fight and said that debuting fighters with a lot of hype usually have a poor showing their first time in the Octagon. “I like Dan Hooker. Last week Michael Chandler was a 2-to-1 favorite. That surprises me. Look, historically speaking, guys making their Octagon debut underperform. Sometimes they win, but they do not have that performance. I believed your going to have to have...

    At the end of last year, the struggle between the PSOE and United We Can in relation to the increase in the minimum wage resulted in a momentary victory for the Socialists: January is about to end, the figure is still fixed at 950 euros in 14 payments. However, the Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, warned at the time that she was not giving up the battle for lost, and the Ministry plans to resume negotiations with the social agents on the matter in the coming weeks. In December, the bloc led by the employers, the Minister of Economy, Nadia Calviño, and the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, imposed a freeze on the minimum wage against Díaz’s criteria, arguing that the best thing to do is to wait for the economic recovery begin to take hold. However, Work was just as clear: leaving the minimum wage at 950 was “absolutely out...

              About five parents in Williamson County have asked members of that county’s school board to create a committee to stamp out what they said was chronic racism within the school district. These parents requested this at the school board’s regular meeting this week. One parent, Kate Keese of Brentwood, asked board members to create what she called a parent advisory committee for diversification and inclusion — and promptly. “Racism is so steeped in our culture that many of us are blind to its presence or effects. We cannot address what we do not acknowledge. We must see it to heal it. Racism is not just about using derogatory language. It is about failing to see the humanity of a people,” Keese told school board members. “The wounds of racism do not belong only to people of color. All of us are wounded by denying...
