McGregor avenged his lone UFC defeat with a victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August. This forced Nate Diaz to get involved in a non-title fight with McGregor. With this fight now the main event of UFC's debut in NYC, fight fans - needless to say - are freaking out. Popular veteran fighters Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, Miesha Tate , Frankie Edgar and Rashad Evans also are in the show.
Peters' second interception of the game in the third quarter set up another Santos field goal from 43 yards that got the Chiefs back within a touchdown, but they would get no closer. The Chiefs were also called for holding on a 104-yard kickoff return by Tyreek Hill , nullifying the touchdown. The 13-3 lead could have been much more as Houston was playing superb defense, but their offense just wasn't finishing drives.
But since Afghanistan's two-wicket win over the No. 7 side in the world, the three-match series has come back to life.

At the end of last season the Hammers lost 4-1 at home to Swansea and slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Stoke on the final day of the season to drop to seventh. The lack of atmosphere has been criticised with the stands so far away from the playing surface, while Hammers' fans fought among themselves during the 4-2 home defeat to Watford on September 10.
As I noted last week, Kansas City's Alex Smith was the first of five straight accurate quarterbacks the Jets will be facing during this treacherous stretch. Although Quincy Enunwa's 4 catches for 37 yards doesn't jump off the page at you, he still impressed with great route running and some tough across-the-field catches.
His next chance at a breakthrough victory is to face golf's best player at the moment (Johnson), with McIlroy and Ryan Moore (66) two shots behind. But it was the mercurial McIlroy's day as he continued the recent tradition of the victor of the Tour Championship also capturing the $US10 million Fedex Cup bonus prize as the leading player across the season.
There is an interesting matchup for Friday's 7:35 a.m. first pairing, which features the foursome (alternate shot) format. The United States may hold the lead following day one of the Ryder Cup, but Rory McIlroy believes Europe are probably happier with their position after fighting back from an opening-session whitewash to trail 5-3.
Then, in the second inning, Cabrera hit his 35th home run of the season, a drive into the shrubs beyond the centerfield fence. Because Cleveland OF Abraham Almonte is ineligible for the postseason, OFs Coco Crisp and Rajai Davis will get most of the corner outfield play through Sunday, Francona said.
The only red number on the board for the USA midway through the afternoon came from putting maestro Brandt Snedeker and Brooks Koepka , who were 3-up on Germany's Martin Kaymer and Masters champion Danny Willett of England, after nine holes .

Thousands of properties across South Australia are still without electricity and SA Power Networks is warning people to prepare for extended outages in the face of more severe weather. South Australia plans to increase that share to 50 percent by 2025. "Questions have to be asked: Is their over-reliance on renewable energy exacerbating their problems and the capacity to have a secure power supply", Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, a climate change skeptic, told Australian ...
That's Pat McAfee on the wide receiver's socks. The Indianapolis Colts now sit in third place in the AFC South with a 1-2 record (tied with the Tennessee Titans). Indianapolis has swept the AFC South series with the Jaguars six times (2002, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014) while also splitting their series six times (2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2015).
This was Trump's first visit to Oakland County since becoming the GOP's nominee. The statewide poll showed Trump to be seven points behind Clinton in MI. According to Trump, it was announced that his microphone was defected during the first presidential debate on Monday. "It was bad and you wonder why it was bad", said Trump.
The Cowboys ranked eighth in total offense and 10th in scoring before the Monday night game. While the 49ers defense will undoubtedly have it's hands full slowing down the Cowboys offense, the offense needs to step up, make plays, sustain drives, and find lanes for the running game.
Their 2-2 draw with Las Palmas at the Gran Canaria saw them fall short of becoming the first ever team to record 17 consecutive wins. "It's not only Cristiano that gets angry; it's everyone that steps out onto the pitch". "We are all here for the same thing". "When you have chances to score goals I would like to obviously score more goals."When [Las Palmas] score two goals against us, of course you have to think about the defence".
Clarke's United States counterpart Davis Love III chose five-time Major victor Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler for his second pairing, who will fight it out with FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan. Even so, it was a matter of Europe running out of holes in the shortest match of the morning. The US made a ideal start in its bid to reclaim the Ryder Cup Friday - but Europe served notice that it will not easily loosen its eight-year stranglehold on global golfing ...
According to the team, which gathered experts from Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Malaysia and Ukraine, the rocket launcher was removed shortly after it was sacked and taken back to Russian territory. "Given the wealth and diversity of the evidence gathered by the JIT, we have no doubt whatsoever that the conclusions we are presenting today are accurate", he said.
Jackson has been adept at seeing the defensive plan and figuring out a way to beat the opposition on the ground or in the air. He added that Grantham's defenses play an aggressive style that makes it tough on the opposition. "He came out thinking [Jackson] was better than RGIII". Buzz: Ward continues to show no ill effects from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss the team's second week win of the season over Lamar.
Seattle is 83-74 this season which is a pretty serviceable number but many in Washington were expecting more out of this team as they were expected to be a big threat to win the division and while all can be forgotten if they can sneak into the playoffs they have a tough road ahead.
While Sir Alex Ferguson retired after leading Manchester United to the Premier League title in 2013, Arsenal's manager is not driven by creating the flawless ending. "My resilience and passion has helped the most, but also the board to stick by me and I believe this club is courageous". Whatever happens at the end of the season, whether Wenger stays or goes, one thing is certain, he will have the backing of the club, the players and the majority of the fans.
Unlike past Matches - Team Europe will field a mix bag squad. "Obviously I'm happy to be 5-3", said USA captain Davis Love. That it's time for a new start. "Because this team's never played together before". "It means we are successful and we are doing it right". "It's not an ideal start by any stretch of the imagination, but we've come back from deficits like this in the past".
Then to win three of the last four holes to win our match (against Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan) feels really good. Mickelson was the catalyst behind a task force geared toward getting the players more involved. That describes the USA team's opening day at the Ryder Cup. It looked bleak, really bleak, when the USA, in their weakest format of the Ryder Cup - the foursomes - took a 4-0 lead against Europe, after playing some brilliant golf.
Arsenal were brimming with confidence from the start on the back of a 3-0 defeat of Chelsea at the weekend while Basel had won 11 of their 12 matches this season. "Dembele is strong in the air, they won all the second balls, we had problems controlling that". He seems to have all the attributes to play at the very top level and he has been a fabulous addition to the Celtic squad this summer.
If you miss a chance against Burnley, it's seen as negative. "That's what we have to learn". "We worked very hard in pre-season to make sure that fitness levels are there to maintain that pressure game throughout 95 minutes. There are also some big decisions to make in the attacking portion of the pitch, with the quintet of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge battling for four spots in the XI.
For more from Ryan's pre-New England Patriots press conference on Wednesday, see the attached YouTube video above. BILLS RB LeSean McCoy had 17-110-2 rushing in Week 3 after managing only 117 yards rushing in first 2 games. "If ( Bill ) Belichick's playing quarterback, we're coming after him".

It was the first time the Americans had swept the opening session of the biennial competition since 1975 - and any session since 1981. Clarke chose to use only two of them in the opening session. Much to everyone's surprise, he made the shot, and his reaction to beating the professional golfers is akin to actually winning the Ryder Cup for his country.
The Irish offensive line has been a bit inconsistent so far this season and will need to come together in what should be the group's toughest challenge so far this season. Despite his throwing his first pick of this season, Kizer completed all but three of his 18 attempts for 156 yards and a pair of scores. There is not a referendum on who's got to carry who, 'the defense can't do that.
The ball took its first bounce off of the warning track, flew up and over the official wall, and hit the advertising wall just above it, a play that should have been a ground-rule double. "I came inside and they said it was a ground-rule double.it's been an up-and-down season but we got a big win". "There was no siren or blinking light to let you know, so the umpires give our team 10 seconds at the culmination of the play", said Price, contradicting Miller's explanation.
Their latest meeting was in the quarter finals of the 2013/14 Champions League . Poland International Kamil Glik scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time to cancel out Javier Hernandez's opener and give Monaco 1-1 draw and share of the spoils with Bayer Leverkusen in their second Champions League Group E match.
The Detroit Tigers game against the Cleveland Indians that was scheduled for Thursday will be made up on Monday afternoon only if it has implications for the postseason. Ausmus said it took him 50 minutes to get to the stadium from his house in Birmingham, taking mostly surface roads. In 18 games, the Indians have outscored the Tigers 106-71, a number skewed by the Tigers' 12-0 win on Tuesday, and in most offensive of the traditional stats, the Indians have produced the best offense in ...
The loss guaranteed a fourth straight losing season for the White Sox, who haven't reached the postseason since 2008. He allowed three earned runs on six hits while striking out five and walking two in 6 2/3 innings. I'm just glad I don't have to answer the question. Duffey is 0-1 with a 4.63 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox. Ventura said he won't necessarily limit Sale to four or five innings, but he also won't put him out there for nine innings, unless the game ...
Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose came to Hazeltine National Golf Club having built a reputation as a fearsome partnership after winning all three of the matches the pair contested together at the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. "I'm not fazed by anything that is said by the crowd", McIlroy said. They might be even more important in one where the momentum seems to have tilted in Europe's favour.
Allardyce's self-inflicted exit after his controversial comments to undercover reporters has left the FA searching for a new boss and they have appointed England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate as interim manager to buy them time. But I have a regret which is that we didn't take enough chances that we created. It's hard to ignore him if you see him playing tonight. "But I'll leave that to [Gareth] Southgate now".
In a little more than five quarters, Hoyer has been able to avoid interceptions and has been sacked once. He went to Washington on the road, came from behind, and then held the lead. Chicago struggled to get anything going in the first half with 114 total yards and a brief 8:13 time of possession. However, as Prescott even said last week, this is Romo's team and a healthy Romo gives the Cowboys the best chance to win games against much tougher opponents.
Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, won both of his singles matches and teamed up with Ivan Dodig on Saturday to stun top-ranked doubles pair Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Del Potro, still feeling his way back after a series of wrist injuries pushed him to the brink of retirement, had hinted yesterday night that he may not play Sunday after featuring in the doubles due to concerns for his health following a punishing summer schedule.
