Michael Bisping is Britain’s first ever UFC champion after shocking Luke Rockhold on Saturday night in Los Angeles. The Lancashire veteran knocked out Rockhold in the first round of their middleweight title fight at UFC 199 despite stepping in at just 17 days notice to replace the injured Chris Weidman.Bisping had been forced to wait 26 UFC fights and 10 years for his first ever crack at a world title, but grabbed it with both hands in three minutes and 36 seconds. Bisping landed a counter left-hook flush on Rockholds chin that dropped the American, before an identical punch put him down again and forced the stoppage.

Cheap Adias NHL Jerseys Free Shipping .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Each week, ESPN.com.au AFL draft expert Christopher Doerre - aka Knightmare - casts his eye over the countrys best junior footballers to give readers an early insight into the next generation of AFL stars.As well as attending live games, Doerre pores through match vision, analyses the stats and talks to industry sources to ensure he can offer the most insightful draft analysis.Aside from the weekly wrap, Doerre will also unveil his power rankings at the end of each month.And as we get closer to Novembers national draft, Doerre will also predict who goes where with his annual phantom draft.Player focus?Brother of Collingwoods Matthew Scharenberg, Jonty Scharenbergs class has shone through for South Australia during the National Under-18 Championships games.In SAs fourth and final game of the championships, a win against Vic Country, Scharenberg managed 25 disposals (10 contested), seven clearances, four tackles, one goal and one score assist.Scharenberg rarely makes eye-catching plays. But the 186cm, 80kg midfielder consistently makes smart decisions and uses the ball well by hand and foot.A constant theme from Scharenberg in his final game for SA was his work by hand. In traffic after winning his own ball, he regularly hit his targets by hand, instigating an offensive drive forward.The most pleasing example of Scharenberg using the ball well by hand was inside the forward 50m. In congestion, he kept his arms high which allowed him to get a handball off to teammate Tyson Stengle for a snap goal in a play that felt very AFL-like from Scharenberg.While Scharenberg was dishing off well by hand, he also showed some finishing ability around goal. From a forward 50m stoppage, he received by hand and swiftly snapped a goal from 40m on an angle, seeming to have a sense for where the goals were.Analysis Scharenberg on the back of his efforts at the national titles looks set to come into consideration as a first-round pick in Novembers national draft. Overall he can be viewed as a low-risk choice given his contested-ball winning ability, clean hands and neat footskills - traits that at AFL level have historically translated well.What is missing from Scharenbergs game is a lack of pace. He is no threat to break the lines or take on the game with run and carry. Much like Sam Mitchell, Scharenberg moves well enough and has the contested-ball winning ability and skills where a relative lack of pace is not expected to have any major effect on his career prospects.Scharenberg also lacks an X-factor. There is nothing freakish about Scharenberg that wows you - he has below average pace and athleticism and lacks a point of difference that makes him stand out above and beyond his peers.Versatility from Scharenberg is also a possible question mark, as he has played almost exclusively as a midfielder. Though with his skillset and goal sense he could reasonably fit in forward or back if required in the future. Long-term, that ability to play multiple positions will be something Scharenberg will benefit from adding to his game, with AFL clubs wanting their players to switch positions more often as opposed to coming off the field due to the reduced interchange rotation cap.Victorian prospect watchNational Under-18 Championships - division oneVic Metro Sam Hayes started Vic Metro off strongly in their win over the Allies. Early in the first quarter the bottom-age, 200cm ruckman/forward opened eyes by taking a strong contested mark in goalsquare and converting from from 20m directly in front. If recruiters had not marked him off in their notes, minutes later Hayes took a one-on-one mark inside 50m and converted a set shot from 45m on a difficult angle. He was also impressive at ground level, picking up the ball cleanly from the deck on several occasions. Hayes kicked three goals to go along with six marks of which two were contested.Andrew McGrath was the other major standout performer for Vic Metro. Again, McGrath offered explosive, dashing run from defence on several occasions, initiating offense from the back half. Also impressive was his change of direction which to go along with his line-breaking ability, is another weapon he uses well coming out of defence.McGrath was just as dynamic in the minutes he spent on the ball. He won a team-high six clearances and 12 contested possessions, and stood out with his ability to win first possession and go hard at the ball at pace. McGrath with continued strong form and improvement, may push for a top-10 selection in the national draft with his stocks rising greatly through Vic Metros first three games of the championships.Daniel Venables impressed with his hardness at the ball. His numbers appear lean on the surface with 11 disposals (six contested), seven tackles, two clearances and one goal. But what was notable about Venables was his impact. He tackled ferociously. So ferociously that at one point upon tackling a player, his opponent and a team-mate initiated some push and shove with Venables. Venables consistently put his head over the ground balls, attacking the ball hard and was consistently clean at ground level. He also attacked the ball in marking contests, almost taking an exciting pack mark.Collingwood father-son hopeful Joshua Daicos put forward an exciting display. At 178cm, 69kg, there is not much of Daicos, but like his father he displays natural talent. Daicos made the most of his 14 disposals finishing with one goal. He was hitting targets around the ground consistently and demonstrated vision and composure with ball in hand. Daicos sidestep and movement through traffic was exceptional and another weapon he showed he could at times use. He also produced an encouraging defensive effort, smothering an opposition kick inside 50m.Nelson Lane, while his 11 disposals and two rebound 50s could be very easily dismissed, excited with his pace (along with McGrath) breaking the lines from defence on several occasions, including an exciting 35m run. The 179cm backman, in a one-on-one contest, used his body well, working his man under the ball for the mark.Vic Country Ruckman Sean Darcy was influential and too strong for the South Australian ruckmen. Darcy, at 201cm, 113kg is a big unit and reminded some observers of a young Shane Mumford. Like the GWS big man, Darcy got on top through the ruck not only with his tap-work but also for his ground-ball winning and strong tackles. One of his tackles from a stoppage dispossessed an opponent, causing a turnover, and is exactly what recruiters will be wanting to see more of. Darcy also at one point pushed back to 50m from the opposition goal for an intercept mark which is something clubs will also look for more of. The more Darcy improves his fitness and develops that Mumford-like power game, particularly ground-ball winning and tackling, the more he is likely to be considered as a rookie.Esava Ratugolea in the last month has proven a real find for Murray in the TAC Cup with four and eight goals in his previous two outings. Against South Australia, Ratugolea stepped into the Vic Country squad and showed some attributes that made recruiters and fans alike sit up and take notice.Ratugolea is of Fijian heritage and having only picked up the game a few years ago is said to have progressed strongly off the back of an outstanding pre-season. At 194cm, 95kg, Ratugolea while not as tall, has a physical profile reminiscent of Nic Naitanui with his power, speed and leap all attributes he uses to have an impact.Ratugolea took several impressive aerial marks, using his spring to get up high, and his strong hands to take the marks. Ratugolea also at ground level showed some terrific signs and made a particularly impressive play when he gave a second effort, diving and tapping the loose ball onto a teammate who went on to gain possession.What let Ratugolea down in this game was his footskills - at stages missing a snap at goal from 10m with no angle, kicking the ball out on the full from 40m directly in front and missing a target on another kick around the ground.Ratugolea as well as playing forward also has featured through the ruck, though was soundly beaten in those minutes he relived Darcy.Sam Fowler, a 169cm forward from Dandenong, has had a strong season so far, kicking 26 goals from his eight games. Against South Australia he showcased his cleanness at ground level, crumbing ability, quick work by hand, pace and tackling energy. Fowler finished with 12 disposals (seven contested), four tackles, one goal, one score assist and three behinds. He looked most dangerous when the ball hit the deck. As a crumbing forward, Fowler may come into consideration at seasons end with continued performance up forward.Again featuring prominently, Ben Ainsworth showed a few more tricks to his bag, spending time through the midfield and leading Vic Country with a team-high 20 disposals. He also led the team with four inside 50s, had an equal team-high two score assists to go along with seven contested possessions, three clearances, four tackles and one goal. Ainsworth proved clean by hand and foot up the field and also at ground level was clean and showed some smarts. One play that impressed from Ainsworth was a run in from the side for a spoil, quickly following up the loose ball and winning it before handballing swiftly to a team-mate for aa shot on goal.ddddddddddddHugh McCluggage again played a prominent role through the midfield for Vic Country with 17 disposals (nine contested), three goals and one score assist. McCluggage again proved freakish by foot not only hitting targets inside 50m but also finishing consistently from impossible angles as he has in previous weeks. McCluggages stats would read even better had he not gone back so quickly to take a set shot attempt at goal with 30 seconds remaining and converted his set shot instead of hitting the post, but understanding the scoreline, he acted correctly given the circumstance. He also should have been credited for a score assist when he found Ratugolea inside 50 but his team-mate kicked the ball out on the full.What McCluggage does by foot is a major reason why he is considered a potential top-10 prospect this season. Some of the other elements to his game also impressed. He can shrug tackles and change direction explosively. McCluggage also runs to the right spots, often finding space in the corridor to present an option going forward. It was also an encouraging sign in those last 30 seconds after McCluggage missed his set shot at goal that he immediately smothered a kick and handballed swiftly to team-mate James Worpel, who finished for a goal from a 30m snap in the final seconds before the siren.TAC Cup Midfielder Matthew Signorello for Northern was a difference through the midfield, finishing with 26 disposals (17 contested), seven clearances, six inside 50s and one goal.Dandenong goal sneak Dan Allsop, in the absence of teammates Joshua Battle and Sam Fowler, played a lone hand up forward as Dandenongs only multiple goal kicker, finishing with four goals to go along with two score assists and 17 disposals.Top-ager Karl Brown was the rounds leading goal kicker with seven majors to go along with his five marks, of which four were contested. Brown, at 193cm, 90kg, has improved his endurance this year. The question marks with Brown are his agility, endurance and work at ground level which are all areas AFL clubs will be looking to see improvement from Brown in, over the second half of the season.Coming into the season Sam McLarty was one of the more highly regarded key position players in this draft class. At 193cm, 93kg, he plays predominantly as a key defender for Oakleigh in the TAC Cup. He made an impressive return for Oakleigh with 21 disposals, eight marks, five contested marks and one goal.Top-ager who made the switch from basketball to AFL in 2015, Trent McMullan for Murray was impressive with 22 disposals (15 contested), nine marks (four contested), 12 hit-outs, five goals and three score assists. McMullan at 193cm, 81kg is a high-leaping, mobile forward who is worth keeping an eye out for over the second half of the season with his two performances so far this season very promising.Lachlan Tiziani up forward for the second week in a row was damaging with 21 disposals, 10 marks, four goals, four behinds and two score assists.The Murray front half is incredible this season with Todd Marshall, Zachary Sproule, Esava Ratugolea, Lachlan Tiziani and Trent McMullan all featuring in my weekly wraps in recent weeks. With Jy Simpkin, who also is a natural forward, out for the season with a broken leg, it is not out of the question that six Murray forwards could receive draft consideration at seasons end.Joshua Hannon, a 198cm key defender, was prominent down back for Eastern, finishing with 19 disposals, seven marks (three contested) and 10 rebound 50s.Bottom ager for North Ballarat, Jordan Johnston, a 182cm forward, produced a breakout game with 14 disposals, eight marks and seven goals. He will be a player to watch next season with his 20 goals from eight games very good.South Australian prospect watch National Under-18 Championships - division oneJack Graham has been SAs most dominant stoppage specialist through their four games. Graham finished with a team-high nine clearances, and an equal team-leading 25 disposals to go with 13 contested possessions and seven tackles. Graham also impressively on a few occasions hit contests at speed and came out the other end of stoppages on the move. What let him down though was his footskills, with several of his kicks going straight to opposition players.Jake Pitman again was SAs third impressive midfielder. He finished with a team-leading 15 contested possessions and 13 tackles to go with 22 disposals, six clearances, one goal and two score assists. Pitman at 177cm, 77kg does not appear quick but has shown his strength at stoppages over the four weeks and has also impressed with his ball use by hand and foot.Ben Jarman, son of Darren, is potential Hawthorn or Adelaide father-son choice and proved a match-winner for South Australia. He finished with a team-leading three goals and four score assists. Jarmans freakish cleanness at ground level along with his composure, footskills and finishing ability, stood out.Jarman on one play cleanly picked up a bouncing ball on the move, baulked and tricked his opponent, then went on to go the other way, handballed to team-mate Peter Ladhams who finished with a snap goal from 30m.Tyson Stengle up forward was a livewire and it felt like he would make something happen every time the ball went into his area, which is a hallmark of quality small forwards. Stengle at 171cm has shown his wares over the four weeks as a small forward. He impressed against Vic Country with his cleanness at ground level, front and centre roving, acceleration, pressuring and tackling ability. Those traits may see him come under consideration by AFL clubs looking for a crumbing small forward.SANFL?League Ex-Blue Nick Holman for Central Districts had a big weekend with 32 disposals (17 contested), nine clearances, five inside 50s and three score assists. Holman has been a strong performer in the SANFL this season, finishing in the bests for Central Districts in seven of their 11 games this season.Reserves Jake Comitogianni - who has been among SAs more promising performers over the first three weeks of the National Under-18 Championships - this week played in the SANFL Reserves. He starred with two goals and a team-leading 27 disposals through the midfield. Comitogianni at 180cm, 70kg, is a lively midfielder who always seems to be on the move and involved in the contest.Division two states (Tasmania, Northern Territory, NSW/ACT, Queensland and Northern Academy) prospects watch?National Under-18 Championships - division oneBottom-age GWS Academy talent Charlie Spargo made an impression against Vic Metro with his lively tackling energy. Spargo is only 175cm, 75kg at this stage but his ground-ball winning ability and fierce attack on the ball evident. He finished with 15 disposals (seven contested) and six tackles. What let him down on several a few times was his footskills. If he can add some more penetration to his kick and start hitting targets more consistently next season, he will be a player to watch in 2017.Gold Coast Academy midfielder Jack Bowes was back to his best this week and led the Allies midfield. He managed 20 disposals (eight contested), three clearances and seven inside 50s. Bowes was impressive with his work by both hand and foot, lowering his eyes and using his vision in general play and in traffic making sound decisions and proving unaffected by the pressure. He won first possession regularly at stoppages. He intercepted not only opposition kicks but also an opposition handball in traffic. It was the game recruiters were waiting for and what we all will be expecting to see more of from Bowes.While his numbers on paper were lean with only six disposals, one goal and two score assists, Todd Marshall still had an impact. The 198cm key forward did some things you dont typically see from a key forward of that height. Marshall was consistently clean in picking the ball up from the deck. One example of why recruiters and draft watchers alike rave about the play of Marshall, was when Marshall picked the ball up cleanly on the move on the boundary and under pressure showed composure to look inboard and find teammate Jack Rolls by foot who was 30m out directly in front, leading to an easy goal for the Allies.GWS Academy midfielder Harry Perryman continued to display his versatility, having the opportunity to play both back and forward in this game. Perryman by foot consistently hit his targets. In traffic at one stage he sold the dummy to create more space for himself on the wing. His marking ability also stood out, with one impressive pack mark 15m from the opposition goal not something you often see from a 184cm midfielder. Perryman has a complete game and will no doubt attract a high bid in this years national draft.Brisbane Academy player Jacob Allison has been noted by observers for being less influential than he was during the 2015 National Under-18 Championships. Allison has in weeks past still shown us his strength of marking overhead and tackling ability but what many were waiting for was his ability to kick a long goal. He provided that when he booted one on the run from outside 50m - the kick seemed to travel 60m and is a glimpse into Allisons capabilities. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
