Woodley vs Till

Woodley vs Till, Live Stream Online Free HD TV Schedule UFC 228, Fighting, Woodley vs Till pits Tyron The Chosen One Woodley vs Undefeated Darren The Gorilla Till fight in American Airlines Center.

The UFC visits American Airlines Center in Dallas on Saturday, and it’s bringing along a title fight, as welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will put his belt on the line against a budding superstar in Darren Till.

There was to be a second title bout in the co-main event, but Nicco Montaño was hospitalized Friday morning before weigh-ins, so her female flyweight defense against Valentina Shevchenko was canceled.

ESPN’s Cheat Sheets are here to tell you everything you need to know going into UFC 228.
Woodley has officially defended the UFC welterweight championship twice since he won it in spectacular fashion against Robbie Lawler in July 2016. But he has defended his actions, performances and demands a thousand times over in that same time frame.

Woodley, 36, has something of a complicated title reign. He actually might not see it that way. To Woodley, his title reign has been a series of triumphs and overcoming adversity. He believes he wrote a blueprint to defeating the complex striker, Stephen Thompson. He wrote another one against the great submission artist, Demian Maia.

He overcame a serious shoulder injury in the first round of his title defense against Maia last summer. And despite the heavy criticism he faced in 2017 for what fans and even UFC president Dana White perceived as “boring performances,” Woodley is only two fights removed from a Fight of the Night against Thompson at UFC 205.

There’s a lot to be proud of in Woodley’s championship run, but that’s not what usually gets mentioned. It’s not rare to open up an online forum and see fans refer to Woodley as a “whiner” — a guy who is always looking for a money fight but doesn’t really deserve one. A champion who should say less and fight more aggressively.

“It’s difficult because people aren’t doing their own research,” Woodley told ESPN. “There are so many fights, every week, people are not up to speed. If people really did their research, they would see I’m not complaining. I’m willing to talk about facts and truth, and sometimes facts and truth come off as complaining.

“What I’ve recognized is I can tell the truest story possible, but people might not be willing — or even want — to receive it. So, lately I’ve personally chose to not tell the story. The only reason to tell the narrative in the past was so fighters who came after me didn’t have to experience the things I experience. I’ve seen people in the position of champions who were too scared to speak up about these things, because they were scared of messing themselves up. I felt obligated to use my platform for change.”

This fight isn’t “Woodley vs. The UFC,” but there are certain elements of that. The UFC has taken a strong interest in Till and has backed him from a promotional standpoint.

For Woodley, Saturday is an opportunity to further build his case as one of the best welterweights of all time in a fight that, on paper, could be more entertaining than his past two. And if he happens to do it against an opponent he thinks the UFC might not mind him losing to, that’s all the better.

“People only remember your last performance,” Woodley said. “If you do the math, look back on my career, every person that was an aggressive fighter or attempted to be aggressive against me, what happened to them? They got knocked out. I think history is going to repeat itself.”

Minsk Half Marathon 2018

Alabama vs Arkansas State Live Stream Free Online, get here the news of College Football, NCAAF,Two storylines to monitor, four players to watch and four nokeep in mind for Alabama vs Arkansas State.

Volha Mazuronak and Hillary Maiyo, the course record-holders of the Minsk Half Marathon, will return to the Belarusian capital on Sunday (9) in the hopes of winning their third titles at the IAAF Bronze Label road race.

For Mazuronak it will be something of a homecoming as it’s her first race since winning the European marathon title in Berlin last month. Despite dealing with a nosebleed during the race and briefly taking a wrong turn, the former race walker unleashed a devastating finish to win in 2:26:22.

Earlier in the year, she placed 18th at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships Valencia 2018 in a national record of 1:10:56, although even that isn’t a true reflection of her ability over 13.1 miles as she covered the second half of the 2016 London Marathon in 1:10:35.

Mazuronak, who finished fifth in the marathon at the 2016 Olympics, has set course records in Minsk in her two previous appearances, clocking 1:12:02 in 2015 and 1:11:44 in 2016.

Maryna Damantsevich will also looking to pick up another title. The Belarusian won the 2014 Minsk Half Marathon in 1:13:33, which was a PB at the time before she reduced it to 1:12:13 one year later. She finished fourth in the marathon at the recent European Championships in 2:27:44, taking nearly three minutes off her PB.

Nastassia Ivanova, who finished fifth in the marathon at the European Championships, will also be in Minsk alongside fellow Belarusians Nina Savina, the defending champion, and steeplechase specialist Sviatlana Kudzelich.

Belarusian runners have won the women’s race at all four editions of the Minsk Half Marathon and with such a strong domestic line-up this year that trend looks set to continue.

Mazuronak isn’t the only athlete who’ll be lining up in Minsk off the back of winning a continental title. Kyrgyzstan’s Daria Maslova won the 10,000m at the recent Asian Games and finished second in the 5000m. Her best half marathon performance this year, 1:13:38, came in a race with little opposition. Her PB for the distance of 1:11:06 was set just last year and will be one of her targets for this weekend’s race.

Compatriot Viktoriia Poliudina struggled with the conditions at the Asian Games and finished a distant 12th in the marathon. The 29-year-old, who has a half marathon PB of 1:13:19, will be looking to rebound in Minsk.

Others in the field include Kenyan duo Agnes Chebet and Sheila Jerotich plus Ethiopia’s Meseret Gebre Dekebo.

Maiyo set the course record of 1:03:00 on his first appearance in Minsk and came close to it last year with 1:03:18. But he may need to run faster than he ever has done before if he is to win a third successive title and hold on to his course record.

Ethiopia’s Abebe Negewo Degefa has a lifetime best of 1:00:40, set in Usti Nad Labem in 2013. His fastest time for the distance this year is 1:02:39, set when finishing second in Suwon.

Kenya’s Joel Mwangi Maina is another accomplished half marathon runner. He finished fourth in Milan earlier this year in 1:01:33, just 17 seconds shy of the PB he set back in 2014.

Bernard Korir has also shown promising form ahead of this weekend’s race. The Kenyan clocked 1:02:07 in Doha earlier this year to miss out on his PB by just eight seconds.

With a best of 1:00:29, Ethiopia’s Feyera Gemeda owns the fastest PB of the field, but he has raced sparingly in recent years and his last half marathon was a 1:03:51 clocking in 2016.

Other contenders include Morocco’s Tahir Belkorchi, Ukrainian duo Mykola Yukhymchuk and Dmytro Lashyn, and authorised neutral athlete Rinas Akhmadeyev.Volha Mazuronak will take part in the Minsk Half Marathon 2018, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Athletics Federation. The winner of the gold medal in the women’s marathon at the European Athletics Championships 2018 in Berlin will participate in one of the biggest mass sport events in Minsk on 9 September. One of the partners of the federation will allocate additional $5,000 for the athlete if she becomes a three-time champion of the 21.1km half marathon. The Belarusian Athletics Federation invites amateur marathoners, athletes to come to the Minsk Half Marathon 2018 and support Volha Mazuronak. “All the participants of the marathon need support of the audience and we hope that this year more people will come to cheer up the runners,” the federation said. This year the Minsk Half Marathon will be held for the fourth time. The 21.1km half marathon will start at 9.00. The 5.5km and 10km marathons will kick off at 12.00. The event has the Road Race Bronze Label status of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and five stars of quality and safety of the European Athlet

Training from Daria Domracheva. The four-time Olympic champion participated in the preparation of dream team for Minsk half marathon. The team of successful businessmen, politicians, actors and our colleagues from Belteleradiocomany. The half-hour intensive warm-up was a real challenge for amateur runners.

Minsk half marathon will be held on September 9. Registration continues. Participants can choose up to three distances of 5, 10 and 21 kilometers. 35 thousand participants are expected.

Florida vs Kentucky

Florida vs Kentucky Live Stream A look at what NCAAF  NCAAF College Football and experts have to say about Kentucky vs Florida Gators For members of the FreeTV Schedule Wildcats football HD team.

It was the largest crowd to watch a Western Kentucky game in more than eight years – since the last time WKU had visited Louisville – and, despite 288 combined rushing yards from Taggart and Donte’ Pimpleton, the Cardinals won, 63-34.

The game didn’t turn out the way he wanted, but Taggart still remembers what it felt like to guide the Division I-AA Hilltoppers against a big-budget school like Louisville.

“That was a long time ago,” Taggart said with a smile on Thursday morning. “It was cool. You had something to prove – go out and prove that you could play with the best of them as well.”

Twenty years later, Taggart is the head coach at Florida State and Pimpleton, his cohort in the WKU backfield, is serving as FSU’s running backs coach.

This week, they’ll lead FSU against Samford, an opponent from the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) that’s looking to come to Tallahassee and prove that it can play with the best.

Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m., inside Doak Campbell Stadium.

“We’re going to go down there and give it our best shot,” Samford coach Chris Hatcher said earlier this week. “It’s an exciting time for us. We only get to do this once a year, to play in this type of venue and this type of atmosphere. We’re going to relish every minute of it.”

Despite suffering a 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech on Monday, the Seminoles will of course still be heavy favorites on Saturday.

FSU is 23-0 all-time against FCS opponents, with an average margin of victory of more than 43 points per game.

That includes a 59-6 triumph over Samford in 2010, the last meeting between the two schools.

Still, the Seminoles have good reason to give the Bulldogs their full attention. First, the obvious: FSU will play the game on just five days’ rest, after a truncated week of practice. (It’s maybe worth note that FSU’s closest win over an FCS team, a 10-point victory against Jacksonville State in 2009, came under similar circumstances.)

Samford, meanwhile, opened its season last Thursday.

Beyond that, Samford is one of the better programs at the FCS level.

The Bulldogs are ninth the FCS Top 25 poll, have made the playoffs in each of the last two seasons and have occasionally stood up to some of college football’s heavyweights.

Two years ago, Samford trailed by just eight points midway through the fourth quarter at Mississippi State. In 2017, the Bulldogs were within striking distance of Georgia at halftime.

They lost both those games, as FCS teams often do when they punch above their weight class. But Hatcher hopes that the experience gained in those contests can come in handy on Saturday.

“It would be a lot of fun to have a shot there late in the game, like we did two years ago,” he said. “Maybe with some of the veterans we have returning, we can find a way to get over the hump.”

The most important of those veterans is senior quarterback Devlin Hodges, the reigning Southern Conference offensive player of the year and a finalist for the Walter Payton Award, which is goes to the FCS Player of the Year.

That’s a distinction he shares with Taggart, who was a finalist for the award in 1997 and 98.

“You can tell that (Hodges) has a real good understanding of their offense and what they’re doing,” Taggart said. “They throw the ball around and get the ball to their guys and let them make plays. … Our DBs will be up for a challenge on Saturday.”

Be that as it may, the Seminoles’ biggest challenges will likely come from within.

Samford has some quality players around Hodges, including receiver Kelvin McKnight (1,156 yards, 12 TDs in 2017) and defensive end Ahmad Goodin (98 tackles, 5.5 sacks), the SoCon defensive player of the year, but the Bulldogs will likely have a hard time matching up with FSU’s depth and athleticism.

Football Bowl Subdivision schools are allowed 85 scholarship players, while the FCS is capped at 63. The Bulldogs have just one receiver on their two-deep taller than 6-foot-1 (FSU has four) and they have just one defensive lineman tipping the scales at more than 300 pounds (FSU has three).

With that in mind, Florida State will likely judge success first on the scoreboard, but also in the signs of progress it makes from Week 1 to Week 2.

The Seminoles will be looking to flip their turnover margin – they were minus-5 in that category last week – improve in the red zone, and quickly get their hurry-up offense in gear.

Do all that, and they should head to Syracuse next week with a confidence-boosting win.

“We know the things we did wrong and we know how to fix them,” sophomore running back Cam Akers said. “This week, that’s what we’ll be coming out and doing.”

Changes up front …
FSU’s offensive line will look a little different than the one that took the field on Monday. Fifth-year senior Derrick Kelly is expected to move from left guard to right tackle while usual tackle Landon Dickerson recovers from an ankle injury. Kelly has played every position on the line except for center. Arthur Williams, a recently converted defensive tackle, will start at left guard, and FSU still hopes that right guard Cole Minshew can play after missing Week 1.

Odds and ends …

Florida State and Samford have a surprisingly deep history. Coaches Bobby Bowden and Jimbo Fisher both attended the school (it was called Howard College when Bowden went there), and FSU opened the Jimbo Fisher Era against Samford in 2010. Both Bowden and Fisher are members of the Samford Hall of Fame.
Since Bowden took over in 1976, FSU is 12-3 when playing with less than a full week to prepare.
Samford has a few local ties: Lineman Brendan Loftus and defensive back Darius Harvey are both from Tallahassee, and Hatcher previously coached at Valdosta State, about 90 minutes away.
Cam Akers’ 85-yard run last week was the longest non-touchdown run in FSU history, and tied Rock Preston (1995) for FSU’s seventh-longest run of any kind.
FSU on Friday will induct its latest Hall-of-Fame class, and this group is particularly star-studded: Teresa Bundy (women’s track and field), Walter Dix (men’s track and field), Jim Gladden (coaches and administrators), Odell Haggins (football), Buster Posey (baseball), Al Thornton (men’s basketball), Veronica Wootson (softball), Mami Yamaguchi (soccer), Bob Perrone (Moore-Stone Award)

Series History: (2-0). The Mountaineers have won both of their meetings with the Penguins to date, including a 37-24 victory in Morgantown in 2016.

2018 Record: 0-1. The ‘Guins opened the season with a loss to 37-point underdog, zero scholarship-having Butler. You have to imagine they’ll be looking to return the favor this weekend.

Head Coach: Bo Pelini. Pelini’s name still carries some considerable weight in the college football world, but won’t for long if he loses too many more like he did last week.

Offensive Coordinator: Brian Crist. Crist was with the Penguins the last time they visited Morgantown, but is only in his first season as offensive coordinator.

Defensive Coordinator: Richard McNutt and Donald D’Alesio. Both of these guys have been at Youngstown for a few years now and have worked their way up from position coaches to co-coordinators.

State’s defense opened the season by holding Butler to just 339 yards and 23 points, which is pretty good until you remember that the Bulldogs don’t have any football players on scholarship. Schematically they’ll run a 4-down front with four seniors and a decent rotation behind them, while their secondary features returning starters Bryce Gibson and Kyle Hegedus. The leader of the group though, is All-Conference linebacker Armand Dellovade.

Looking at their numbers from the first game, the preferred method of attack would appear to be the pass. I’m sure we’ll do plenty of that, but I think the most important thing for us to do in this game is develop some momentum on the ground. We ran the ball reasonably well against Tennessee last week, rushing 24 times for 118 yards, but I still think that’s selling the talent of both our line and backfield short. They’re better than that, and I think they’ll have the chance to prove that this week.

Offensively the Penguins seem reasonably balanced, with Tevin McCaster providing the threat on the ground while Notre Dame transfer Montgomery VanGorder supplies it through air. They have a lot of new faces at receiver but seem to be reasonably experienced up front, and that, combined with the fact that McCaster is their best offensive player, means we can probably expect them to try to establish the run. That obviously makes our number one priority stopping it. If we stop McCaster, we stop their play action game, and ultimately we stop them.

Kicker Zak Kennedy and punter Matt Schuler both return from the Penguins’ last trip to Morgantown and give them a solid special teams foundation. I don’t know much about their coverage teams, but they do appear to have a pair of solid return men that we need to keep a close eye on. Nothing keeps games close that shouldn’t be like big plays in the third phase.

West Virginia returns to Morgantown for its home opener this Saturday, as the Mountaineers welcome FCS opponent Youngstown State to Milan Puskar Stadium. For those fans not making their way to see the game in person, here’s how you can watch, stream, and listen to this weekend’s home opener.

Penn State vs Pittsburgh

Penn State vs Pittsburgh Live Stream Welcome To These state rivals went Watch through a separation period Online  Pittsburgh vs Penn State for a while during the turn of the century, NCAAF College Football but luckily for us, they’ll meet for the third straight season on Saturday night in Pittsburgh.

Penn State won last season’s meeting 33-14 and leads the series overall 51-43-4.Last week was a lot closer than Penn State was hoping for! Eleven years to the day after Appalachian State shocked the world and beat Michigan it almost did it again to Penn State in Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions escaped with a 38-31 win in overtime, but last week’s game showed that a young and inexperienced defense has some growing pains to deal with.

Pitt: It’s always difficult to learn much about a team in games against FCS squads like Albany, but Pitt looked good in its season opener. Quarterback Kenny Pickett threw for 154 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a third as well as the Panthers won easily 33-7. Penn State will provide a more difficult challenge, but Pat Narduzzi isn’t shy about embracing this rivalry, and you can expect Pitt to come prepared.

Had Penn State won comfortably last weekend I’d be more inclined to take Pitt here — and, believe me, I understand if you want to — but a part of me wonders if we won’t see a much more focused effort from the Nittany Lions. The near loss against Appalachian State will serve as a wake-up call. Pick: Penn State -8.5

Penn State was certainly impacted negatively on offense by not having backup quarterback and utility man Tommy Stevens available for Saturday’s win over Penn State, and the same thing can be said for the defense, as it played without starting tackle Kevin Givens and expected key contributor Shane Simmons.

It appears that Givens is ready to rock n’ roll, but Simmons looks to be at least a week if not more away from returning. Stevens curiously was on the field and looked ready for game action last week but then never returned with the full team for warmups an hour before kickoff against App State, but he was at practice this week, as was Givens, who missed last week due a suspension for violating team rules.

Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens talks with offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne during practice on Sept. 5, 2018.

The Lions should take a big step forward with both back, but on the other side, it’ll be worth watching how often John Reid and Micah Parsons are used early after both missed time late in the first win of the year.

“I thought Micah did some really good things in limited reps,” head coach James Franklin said earlier this week.

“I though Ricky did some really good things in limited reps. I think both of them showed that they deserve more reps and that will gradually grow.”

Virginia Tech vs William & Mary

Virginia Tech vs William & Mary Live Stream Watch Online Virginia  football is looking to avoid a  NCAAF College Football hangover against William & Mary vs Virginia Tech in Week 2 and here’s everything you need to know about the matchup TV Channel.

19 Florida State on Monday night, you were in the minority. The Hokies looked like one of the teams to beat in the ACC, going on the road to take down a talented team, on paper, in the Seminoles.

Josh Jackson had a decent showing, going 16-for-26 for 207 yards and two touchdowns, but it was the Hokies’ defense that stole the show.

In fact, Virginia Tech’s defense held Florida State to just 327 total yards of offense and only three points. That’s right, the Hokies held the Seminoles out of the end zone on their home field to start the Willie Taggart era — that’s not a simple feat.

William & Mary is next up on the schedule and head coach Justin Fuente will have his guys ready to go. The run game will need to step up more after averaging 2.8 yards per carry but beating the Tribe should be a walk in the park.

Josh Jackson needs to gain some confidence and go turnover-less for the second straight game. However, he’s not the biggest key, that actually falls on the run game. In order to establish itself as one of the premier teams in the ACC, the Hokies will need to average more than 2.8 yards per touch. Establish the run and the aerial attack will take care of itself.

Defensively, just repeating the performance the Hokies had against Florida State will work wonders against this iffy William & Mary offense.

No one is giving William & Mary a chance, and for good reason. The Tribe went 2-9 in 2017 but they did win their first game, but in order to have a chance in this one, they’ll need to find their offense. They scored just 14 points against Bucknell and that won’t work against Virginia Tech. The key here is simple: find the end zone early and often. Easier said than done.

Remember the last time Virginia Tech won a big prime-time game on Labor Day? Yeah. JMU happened.

That was back in 2010, and you might not remember this part, but it wasn’t even a good JMU team that shocked the world with that 21-16 win in Lane Stadium.

The Dukes would get out to a 3-0 start, but then wilt, losing four straight at one point on their way to a middling 6-5 finish.

This is relevant in the context of this weekend’s Virginia Tech-William & Mary matchup.The Tribe (1-0) was picked 11th in the 12-team CAA in the preseason, coming off a 2-9 season a year ago.

William & Mary did get a nice road win in its opener this past weekend, a 14-7 final over Bucknell.

The issue for the Hokies (1-0) is twofold: the short week, after the 24-3 win at Florida State on Monday night, and coming down off the high of beating down FSU on national TV.

The offense did its job in the win. Josh Jackson avoided the big mistake, throwing for 207 yards, completing 16 of his 26 pass attempts, with two touchdowns.

Deshawn McClease (13 carries, 77 yards) and Steven Peoples (13 carries, 44 yards) anchored the run game.Eric Kumah (4 catches, 86 yards, 1 TD) put up big numbers through the air. Jackson connected on passes to seven different Hokie receivers.

The story of the FSU win was defense and special teams. The Hokies limited the ‘Noles to 327 total yards and forced five turnovers, and kept them out of the end zone.The special teams contributed to the bottom line, blocking an FSU punt for a second-quarter touchdown.

For William & Mary, the win at Bucknell was also about defense, as the Tribe limited the Bison to just one score and 257 total yards. Additionally, the Tribe forced two turnovers and held BU to just 11 first downs.

After missing nearly the entire 2017 season due to injury, senior wideout DeVonte Dedmon made a tremendous return to lead the offense and recorded 125 receiving yards, highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to help secure the victory.
