McGregor late for pre-fight presser, Nurmagomedov not in a mood to wait

first_imgGov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal “I have a schedule,” Nurmagomedov said. “I have to make weight. I have to worry about myself. If someone is late, it’s not my problem.”UFC chief Dana White had to scramble to join Nurmagomedov, who stepped on the stage exactly at the appointed time for the final media event before Friday’s weigh-in. But in a promotion that has largely sold itself, White wasn’t terribly worried that the two fighters didn’t get a chance to confront each other.Not with thoughts of the biggest UFC pay-per-view in his head.“I’m not going to say we’re going to do Mayweather-McGregor numbers,” White said of a fight that sold 4.4 million pay-per-views. “But we possibly could do Mayweather-McGregor numbers.”When McGregor did finally arrive, he was carrying a bottle of his new Irish whiskey along with a message to Nurmagomedov.ADVERTISEMENT Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Kyrie Irving tells Boston fans: I’ll be back ‘if you guys will have me’ Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Nurmagomedov and McGregor ended up answering questions separately Thursday, though it seemed to do little to dampen the excitement about their 155-pound showdown. The two meet Saturday night in what is expected to be the biggest fight in UFC history — a bout might even threaten the pay-per-view sales mark set last year by McGregor when he was stopped in a boxing match by Floyd Mayweather Jr.Several thousand pro-McGregor fans packed a theater expecting to see a confrontation between two fighters who can’t stand each other. What they got instead were separate appearances, with Nurmagomedov leaving 10 minutes before McGregor — who was nearly a half hour late — arrived.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“I tried to get here, I’m just a couple minutes late,” McGregor said. “He doesn’t want to be around me.

McGregor is scheduled to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/John Locher)LAS VEGAS — Khabib Nurmagomedov wasn’t about to wait around for a tardy Conor McGregor, who arrived at what was supposed to be their final prefight press conference together to find the UFC lightweight champion already gone.No worries, they’ll meet soon enough when it really matters for both men.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READcenter_img Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “I am coming to put a hole in this man’s skull,” he said.McGregor is the challenger — and also the underdog — against the unbeaten Nurmagomedov, who won the vacant UFC lightweight title in April against late replacement Al Iaquinta to become the 155-pound champion.But it is McGregor’s bombastic personality and star power that drives the hype for the fight, much like it did the last time he fought in a boxing ring last August in a knockout loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. He’s the biggest star the UFC has left after Ronda Rousey’s retirement and is being counted on to deliver the biggest UFC card ever.“It’s good to be back,” said McGregor, who hasn’t fought since losing to Mayweather 14 months ago in a boxing match where he was badly outclassed.McGregor said he expected to make about $50 million in a pay-per-view event that will likely shatter the previous UFC record of 1.6 million buys and will also make Nurmagomedov his biggest payday ever.McGregor helped sell the fight before it was even announced, getting charged by New York authorities after throwing a hand truck through a bus window in Brooklyn in April at Nurmagomedov. He has loudly proclaimed he will knock the Russian out, while at the same time promoting at every opportunity the new whiskey he is marketing from his native Ireland.“At the end of the day when I sign up you’re going to get a fight,” McGregor said. “I am starving for this man’s head. There’s nobody hungrier than me in this game.”Nurmagomedov, for the most part, has been relatively quiet, despite being insulted by McGregor for everything from his heritage to his friendship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. But he made it clear he has no love for McGregor or anyone around him.“I’m a little bit emotional,” said Nurmagomedov, who lives and trains in San Jose. “My job when I go to the cage is to control my emotions. He can say whatever he wants, nobody cares about him.”McGregor is 2-2 in his last four fights — including the boxing match against Mayweather — and just how big any future paydays will be will largely depend on how he does against Nurmagomedov, the Russian who used to wrestle bears as a youth and who has not lost in 26 MMA fights.

That was the tactic Nate Diaz used to upset McGregor in their first fight, though McGregor came back to win a close decision in their second bout.“I have to be careful with him,” Nurmagomedov said. “He has good timing, good boxing.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

GPHC bent on enforcing lax or outdated requirements

first_imgDear Editor,In an article “Government cracks down on illegal medicine” published on March 22, 2019, in the Guyana Chronicle, Director of the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department, Marlon Cole said that “it is more than likely that Guyana has a higher rate of substandard and falsified medical products on its market”.The article went on to say “that several distributors of pharmaceuticals and other medical supplies have not acquired marketing authorisation as required by law, and as such, are engaging in the sale and distribution of pharmaceuticals that are not approved by the Food and Drug Department”. Mr Cole noted that efforts to aggressively enforce legislation mandating distributors to acquire marketing authorisation and drug registration have commenced since 2014, however, resistance to these efforts have continued.It is interesting to note that The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation’s Procurement of Pharmaceutical 2019 Evaluation Criteria, at questions 19 and 20, exempt foreign businesses at the time of bidding from providing a valid import licence and valid marketing authorisations, provisions which directly contradict and undermine the efforts of the Government’s Food and Drug Administration. The effects of this are ultimately felt by the consumers since this presents a direct route to unauthorised entry of drugs not subject to quality inspection by the authority.Further, this places local importers and manufacturers at a disadvantage since they are required to invest time and resources into acquiring the import licence as well as preparing and sending off technical and voluminous documentation as well as products for marketing authorisation. In the absence of evidence supplied by distributors that the product is certified to be sold in Europe and North America, and through CARPHA, Mexico, Cuba, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Columbia, there are obvious questions about their quality.It is disappointing that throughout the public health arm of the Government that such a wide disconnect exists in an area which is critical to ensuring the public’s safety. While the GA-FDD has undertaken significant investment in equipping themselves to raise the standard of drugs sold on the local market and ensure importers’ compliance with the law, the GPHC seems bent on enforcing lax or outdated requirements which, in effect, achieve the complete opposite and are also in violation of the law, as Mr Cole explained.Sincerely,Vishal Sukhailast_img read more

President Calls on Barclayville, Greenville to Clean-up for July 26

first_imgAt the end of her visit to Sinoe and Grand Kru counties to assess the preparations for the celebration of this year’s Independence Day (July 26) celebrations, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf urged citizens of Sinoe and Grand Kru counties, co-hosts of Liberia’s 168th Independence Anniversary, to get involved in the preparations for a successful celebration.The President noted that citizens and residents can contribute to the celebration by cleaning their homes and surroundings, giving the two capital cities – Greenville and Barclayville – facelifts.  She urged the citizens to clean their yards, cut high bushes growing all around the two cities, as well as paint their houses. “They all need to join in to do their little part to make the two cities look good,” she pleaded.The chief executive expressed satisfaction with the progress made so far but was quick to say that a lot more needs to be done to meet the deadline especially for projects expected to be dedicated during the celebrations.She was very happy with the level of work being done by the Ministry of Public Works and lauded Public Works Minister Gyude Moore and his team who expressed optimism that the road will be ready for the celebration. Minister Moore had earlier told President Sirleaf that 76 percent rehabilitation work on the road, broken into segments from Buchanan, Grand Bassa County to Barclayville, Grand Kru County, has been completed.One of the contractors, Mandra is working on the 107 kilometer stretch between Buchanan and Nimba junction.  Another contractor, Solid Rock, is working the 97 kilometer road between Nimba junction and Nyanforh Town; and the Armed Forces of Liberia’s Engineering Company, the 32 kilometer portion between Nyanforh Town and Greenville.She had exceptional praise for the Ministry of Public Works team headed by deputy minister Claude Langley who constructed the 120-foot Bailey bridge over the Darbawulor River that connects Greenville to Barclayville through Taybu 1 and Taybu 2 and has cut the transportation time of the 166 kilometer road between the two capital cities by nearly two hours. President Sirleaf, however, cautioned that though a lot of work has been done on the roads, which has shortened the time a vehicle takes between Buchanan to Barclayville through Greenville, if the rains are heavy, there will be difficulties on the roads. “That’s nature and we don’t know what will happen; that’s the risk,” she warned.She praised the Director General of the General Services Agency, Ms. Mary Broh, who is spearheading the renovation of the presidential guest house and the J. Dominic Bing, Sr. City Hall in Greenville, Sinoe County, where the main Independence Anniversary celebrations will take place.“Mary is doing a great job here and we are grateful that she is here to ensure that things are done,” President Sirleaf said.Several projects are expected to be dedicated in Sinoe County during the Independence Anniversary.During her tour, President Sirleaf visited several project sites, some of which are completed and some are still ongoing, in both counties. She was told by the contractors that the projects will be completed before the celebration.In Sinoe, projects expected for dedication have reached a considerable level, while some are already completed. These include the proposed superintendent’s residence and guest house, multipurpose youth center, statutory district superintendent’s residence in Jourzon, and the Delkilo Public School in Numepo District.In Barclayville, Grand Kru County, she visited ongoing renovation work at the Barclayville City Hall; the newly constructed administrative building in Jloh Statutory District and the presidential guest house where she held a meeting with local leaders, including the Grand Kru County Legislative Caucus on the ongoing preparations.Projects expected to be dedicated in Grand Kru County include four administrative buildings in four statutory districts including Dorbor, Boah, Garraway, and Jloh; three buildings to accommodate U.S. Peace Corps volunteers teaching in the county; a science laboratory at the P.G. Wolo High School, two others are to be constructed in Sasstown and Grand Cess; 50 solar panel lights around Barclayville; the laying out of streets in Barclayville; and the renovated Barclaville City Hall.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Romelu Lukaku already training with Man United in Los Angeles

first_img1 Romelu Lukaku has hit the ground running at Manchester United, training with his new team-mates in Los Angeles within an hour of completing his big-money from Everton.A return to former club Chelsea had looked likely for much of the summer, only for United to swoop in and gazump the Premier League champions.Lukaku has arrived in a deal worth £75million plus add-ons, penning a five-year deal at Old Trafford with the option of a sixth.“I would like to start by thanking Everton and the fans for the last four wonderful seasons, I have made some special friends and we have shared some amazing moments,” said the striker, who has chosen the number nine worn by Zlatan Ibrahimovic last term.“However, when Manchester United and Jose Mourinho come knocking at the door it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I could not turn down.“You could see the fight, determination and the spirit in this team during the Europa League final and I want to become a part of that.“I cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session.”That first session came within an hour of official confirmation of the deal, having been on holiday in Los Angeles with United midfielder Paul Pogba.Lukaku stayed with the team at their Beverly Hills hotel on Sunday and arrived with his new team-mates at UCLA the following morning, signing autographs and posing for photos for supporters.The striker was made to sweat alongside as United’s pre-season tour got under way, with the first of a double session on Monday taking place at Drake Stadium in temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius Romelu Lukaku is already training with Manchester United last_img read more

Welbeck shares FaceTime call with Arsenal squad before Wolves draw

first_img“He looked very happy and I think he was happy to talk to us because he is still a big part of our team and we will support him to have a good time when he is injured.“I think that is a big quality of the manager because he always wants to have a team, not just one player, one player, one player (individuals) and I think this meeting was very motivating for us and for every player to play for Danny because everybody likes him.”Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to 16 games with a draw, which could easily have been a first defeat since August.Wolves were the better side for much of the contest and only a string of smart saves from Leno kept the hosts in the game.Substitute Morgan Gibbs-White hit the crossbar in injury time as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side almost sealed the win. Mkhitaryan salvaged a point for Arsenal against Wolves It remains to be seen how long Welbeck will be on the sidelines, but head coach Unai Emery arranged for him to speak to his team-mates before the 1-1 draw with Wolves.He could not inspire the Gunners to a win, with substitute Henrikh Mkhitaryan levelling four minutes from full-time after Ivan Cavaleiro’s goal looked set to be enough for the visitors.“We talked to him because of the coach before the game in the meeting, we had a FaceTime session with him,” Leno said after the game.“It was very good, we wanted to win for him. We all are sorry for him for his injury, and hope he will have a good recovery and to see him on the pitch because he’s an important player for the team and also in the dressing room.

We played after 1-0 for the other team, we played very good,” he added.“I think this shows a good character of the team that we never give up. After the 1-0 it was dangerous to score as well, but we never gave up and at the end I think had chances to score the second goal.“I think at the end the balance was lost again, maybe we wanted too much to win this game.
