MADRID -- Sergio Ramos only contribution to Spain in a World Cup qualifier this weekend will be a pep talk to his teammates. Air Jordan 3 Nz Sale .Ramos visited the teams training camp this week ahead of Saturdays match against Macedonia, but the captain wont be on the field in the southern city of Granada because of an injury -- one of the many players missing as Spain tries to defend its Group G lead in European qualifying.Spain coach Julen Lopetegui also wont be able to count on playmaker Andres Iniesta, striker Diego Costa, defender Gerard Pique, left back Jordi Alba and defensive midfielder Javi Martinez.Costa was the latest to be dropped from the squad on Thursday, being released because of a thigh injury that had kept him from practicing with the rest of the squad during the week. Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas was named as his replacement, joining the national team for the first time.We are going to try to turn difficulties into opportunities, Lopetegui said. We cant lament anything. Im happy with the players that we called up, and they are going to help us achieve victory in both matches.Three days after hosting Macedonia, Spain will play a friendly against England at Wembley Stadium.Lopetegui will have to work extra hard to set up his defense, which is not used to being without veteran central defenders Ramos and Pique at the same time. Ramos is nursing a left knee injury, while Pique is recovering from sprained ligaments in his right ankle.Weve had to restructure the defense the best way possible, Lopetegui said, not dismissing the possibility of having to improvise with right back Cesar Azpilicueta at center back.The Chelsea player has played in the position in the past.Other options for Lopetegui include Real Madrids Nacho Fernandez, Real Sociedads Inigo Martinez, Sevillas Sergio Escudero and Borussia Dortmunds Marc Bartra.With Costa not playing up front, Alvaro Morata and Aritz Aduriz should get a chance to perform alongside each other in the lineup. Other forwards in the squad include Lucas Vazquez, Manuel Nolito Agudo, Jose Callejon and Victor Vitolo Machin.Its great to have so many options, said Aduriz, who was called up after scoring five goals in an Athletic Bilbao win in the Europa League last week. We are all here to help.At midfield, it will be difficult to substitute for Iniesta, who has been sidelined because of right knee injury. Among the options available for Lopetegui are Juan Mata, Thiago Alcantara and Jorge Koke Resurreccion.Some important players couldnt come because of injuries, but that creates an opportunity to those who are here, reserve goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo said.Spain and Italy have seven points each after three games in Group G, with the Spaniards ahead on goal difference. Albania and Israel are one point behind, while Macedonia and Liechtenstein have yet to earn points.Italy plays at Lichtenstein the same day that Spain hosts Macedonia.Only the group winner automatically secures a spot for the World Cup in Russia. The second-place team must go through a playoff to try to make it to the 2018 tournament.Spain is coming off a 2-0 win at Albania. Italy and Spain drew 1-1 in Turin in October.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni Authentic Jordans Shoes Wholesale . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. Cheap Authentic Jordan 3 . No. 13-seeded John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber were among six players who dropped out of the tournament on Tuesday, joining No. 12 seed Tommy Haas and two other players who withdrew on Monday. http://www.airjordan3nz.com/ . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. PHILADELPHIA -- Six weeks into the season, the Flyers and Bruins are looking like a pair of teams who could battle it out for one of the two wild card playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.Theyll battle it out for the first time this season Tuesday night when the Bruins visit South Philadelphia.Weve got to scratch and claw every night right now, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol told the Philadelphia Inquirer of his 10-10-3 team. Were a .500 hockey team and it seems like weve talked about that quite a lot. We can keep talking about it, or we can worry about doing something about it.The Flyers will play eight games in the next 13 days and 13 games in the 24-day stretch leading up to their Christmas break. They are looking to string together their first two-game win streak since early November when they won three straight.This is a critical stretch between now and the Christmas break, Hakstol said. Thats about as big picture as I want to get, and we absolutely have to narrow it down a lot further than that -- right down to the points that are available against Boston.The Bruins (12-10-0) are coming off Sundays 4-1 home win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, which snapped a three-game losing streak. Forward Jimmy Hayes recorded his first point in 36 games with his first goal since Feb. 24.He was so relieved by the goal that he threw an imaginary monkey off his back in celebration.It was more of a joke that it was an elephant, Hayes told CSN New England. I think I lost about a hundred pounds there.The four goals against the Lightning matched the total the Bruins had scored during their three-game losing streak.Goaltender Tuukka Rask came within 2:39 of aa shutout in the win, stopping 30 shots to improve his record to 12-4-0 and lower his GAA to 1. Wholesale Air Jordan 3 Nz. 3.Tuukka has had to keep the Bruins afloat this season because of a shortage of offense. Aside from the top-line forwards David Patrnak (team-high 13 goals, 17 points) and Brad Marchand (six goals, 19 points) the Bruins have struggled to produce this season, ranking 20th with 52 goals. Through 19 games Patrice Bergeron has just three goals and three assists.The Flyers have had no trouble putting up goals. They rank second behind the Rangers with 72 goals, led by Wayne Simmonds (11) and Jakub Voracek (eight).But theyve allowed an NHL-worst 76 goals, including three by rookie goalie Anthony Stolarz in a 5-3 win Sunday night against the Calgary Flames.The Flyers allowed the first goal in that game and have scored first in just eight of their 23 games. They are 5-1-2 when scoring first and 5-9-1 when they dont.Goaltender Steve Mason (5-8-3, 3.04) is expected to return to action Tuesday night. Hes lost three of his last four starts and is 2-3-1 since Michael Neuvirth suffered a knee sprain.The Bruins could be without a pair of veteran defensemen against the Flyers.Zdeno Chara has missed the past three games with a lower body injury and is not expected to play Tuesday night. Bruins defenseman John-Michael Liles left Sundays game with an upper-body injury after sliding head first into the end boards. Hes questionable for Tuesday and if he cannot play the Bruins likely will recall a defenseman from AHL Providence. ' ' '

For the traditionalists Caulfield Guineas Day is the real start of the Spring Racing Carnival, and the first day of Caulfields tranche provided some exceptional racing. Authentic Custom Jerseys . While the Guineas is usually the main drawcard, it was somewhat overshadowed by the Caulfield Stakes, a three-horse race featuring Winx shooting for her 12th straight win and the first opportunity to see her up against Black Heart Bart.And Winx delivered. The event contained just as much intrigue during the running of the race as was in the air of anticipation. The five-year-old mare displayed her superiority and continued her perfect record in Melbourne. Trainer Chris Waller said post-race that his heart was pumping a tad harder in the early stages, but the relative ease of her win had the Aus$360,000 first prize in her keeping with 150 metres to go.The main feature of the day, the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), saw jockey Dwayne Dunn make use of an inside barrier with Divine Prophet ($7 with UBET) to claim a narrow victory over the David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained, and fast-finishing, Seaburge ($31) and Hey Doc ($10) in third.Dunn notched a Group 1 double in the Toorak Handicap (1600m) aboard Hes Our Rokkii ($2,50), the bet of the day from Scott Heinrich on ESPN; the victory capped a red-letter day for the Hayes and Dabernig, who saddled four winners on the card.In The Thousand Guineas (1600m) for the fillies, Global Glamour ($4.60) notched her second successive Group 1 victory on consecutive Saturdays after taking out the Flight Stakes in Sydney over the same distance for the new training combination of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.The final Group 1 race of the Randwick Carnival was the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), taken out with a last-to-first swooping effort by the David Vandyke-trained Yankee Rose ($2.20). Formerly in Sydney but now based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Vandyke engaged 42-year-old Victorian journeyman jockey Dean Yendall for the ride in the Sydney feature. This was Yendalls first win at the highest level.Headline ActWinx: Of course. The anticipation towards the three-horse Caulfield Stakes (2000m) contest wasnt so much fever pitch but more that of broad intrigue. Brad Rawiller aboard Black Heart Bart took up the lead for the first 1000 metres before Hugh Bowman, on Winx, started to push his mount along gear by gear. Into the straight, as gallant as three-time Group 1 winner Black Heart Bart was, he couldnt match it for Winxs ability to the line. The winning margin was 2 lengths, with the Hayes-trained He Or She outclassed in third a further four lengths away.Starting at $1.24, Winx will have benefited for having this run as Bowman commented that she was looking for her Sydney leg into the straight; the jockey was referring to her racing in the anti-clockwise direction for the first time since her 2015 Cox Plate victory at Moonee Valley. He also said that he did have to push her more this time to overcome Black Heart Bart that he had had to in her previous Sydney outings.Winx remains a steady Cox Plate favourite while Black Hart Bart has eased to $13. So now it is on to The Valley in a fortnight for the much-anticipated clash between Winx and Group 1 Turnbull Stakes winner Hartnell.Lindsay Park training team:?David Hayes along with his training partners Ben (son) and Tom (nephew) run a significant operation, meticulously planned, as youll know after reading ESPNs racing feature last week ,. Four winners on any card is something special, but a four-time that includes dual Group 1 victories, one at Group 3 and another at Listed level is a very good day.Their planning and patience shone through with the win of Hes Our Rokki, which was also the first Group 1 win of their triumvirate partnership. Hayes noted that they had resisted the temptation to take on the weight-for-age performers and stuck to more manageable races, which helped and delivered Hes Our Rokkis fifth-straight win.Speaking of training combinations, they were to the fore once again as Team Hawkes (Hall of Fame trainer John together with sons Wayne and Michael) notched a winning double with Divine Prophet and Star Turn.Talking PointsCox Plate: It is 30 years since the Race of the Century in the 1986 Cox Plate, the classic drive to the line with Bonecrusher just edging out Our Waverley Star. The 2016 edition is being touted by the Moonee Valley Racing Club as the race of this century, and they could be right.Winx ($2.00 for the Cox Plate with UBET) and Hartnell ($2.75) are the headline acts but add in Hartnells stabelmate Hauraki, Yankee Rose and Divine Prophet -- as indicated by his co-trainer Wayne Hawkes after the Caulfield Guineas - and it looks like a cracking edition. Having said that, there are very few bad Cox Plates.Global Glamour: It isnt easy to win two Group 1 races in succession but the Waterhouse-Bott training combination, which only came into effect on 1 August, succeeded in winning with this smart filly at Randwick then put her on a float to Melbourne and won again with a very tough performance at Caulfield.The Flight Stakes-Thousand Guineas double has been completed on just seven other occasions back to 1947, but not usually with these races being run only one week apart. Global Glamour was a drifter in the market from $3.70 to $4.40, with the win accurately described by jockey Kerrin McEvoy as classy.Prince Of Penzanze: The dream of a second Melbourne Cup is unfortunately over. Following his fourth placing in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m), stewards reported that Prince Of Penzance had fractured one leg.3yo formlines: In the lead-up to the Caulfield Guineas, the expectation was that horses who had competed in Sydney were stronger than their Melbourne counterparts. Divine Prophet won having been campaigned in Sydney before the Guineas, but Seaburge went through lead-ups at Caulfield and Flemington and third-placed Hey Doc ran in the Group 2 Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley.EyecatchersSheidel: The five-year-old mare provided the Hayes, Hayes & Dabernig combination with their third winner of the day in the Group 3 race over 1200 metres. She produced a strong performance to hold off Silent Sedition, whom jockey Craig Williams said he was delighted with and was looking forward to that mare stepping up in distance. There is seemingly more to come from Sheidel during the carnival, with her next stop to be the Group 1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley under lights on 21 October.Star Turn: A very impressive winner of the Group 2 Shillaci Stakes (1100m), Star Turn is just one of a very impressive group of three-year-old sprinters racing during this Carnival. Fifth placed in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) for two-year-olds last February, behind subsequent Group 1 Moir Stakes winner Extreme Choice, there is a very significant formline developing out of that edition.BlackbookersTivaci: More might have been expected so far this spring of last Julys Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) winner, who went into the Toorak Handicap as a 20-1 chance. Tivaci, with the light weight, was in touch with the leaders to the turn but he just took a little longer to build momentum to the line and finished third, beaten by less than a length. May pay to watch more closely next time. Stewards also noted that he was inconvenience in the run home by the eventual winner, Hes Our Rokki.Prompt Response: Very much a forgive run over the 1200 metre trip on Saturday. Was knocked about a couple of times in the straight when trying to go for runs, and lost momentum. Jockey Kerrin McEvoy attempted to pick up the pieces in the last 150 metres but it was all too late as Prompt Response was unplaced in fifth.Angharad: In the same 1200 metre Group 3 race as Prompt Response, this Godolphin-owned filly saw nothing but backsides in the straight and could only canter along behind them. Starting at $31 on this occasion, she may be one to watch next time and could slip by many punters attentions.So Si Bon: Trainer Robbie Laing must be ruing all of the bad luck that his Caulfield and Thousand Guineas contenders received in those races. So Si Bon started at $71 in the Caulfield Guineas but his effort in finishing fifth was a very worthy AAMI Victoria Derby trial. He was squeezed for room at about the 250 metres mark, which literally knocked him out of figuring in the finish. UBET currently rate this colt a $13 chance for the Derby on 29 November.FlopsFoxplay: The $4.20 Thousand Guineas favourite finished unplaced. After two successive wins in Sydney at Group 2 level, jockey Hugh Bowman described the effort as satisfactory but said that Foxplay didnt really handle the turns around Caulfield and would be a better horse in 12 months time.Impending: There was a high expectation on this Sydney visitor, who started the $3.50 favourite with UBET in the Caulfield Guineas. Jockey James McDonald said the run was full of merit, but that didnt really help punters who loaded up after his previous impressive Group 2 win over 1500 metres in Sydney.

CHARLOTTE, N. Air Max 1 Sale Australia .C. -- NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Tuesday that returning the All-Star Game to Charlotte in 2019 is a high priority, provided theres a resolution to a North Carolina law that restricts the rights of LGBT people.The NBA recently decided to move the 2017 All-Star Game to New Orleans because it didnt believe it could successfully host the All-Star Game and related events in Charlotte under the climate created by the law known as House Bill 2. Los Angeles hosts the game in 2018.Silver spoke following a ceremony in Charlotte in which Hornets owner Michael Jordan unveiled the first of three refurbished neighborhood basketball courts.We were in an unfortunate position that we were moving the game, so for me it is a high priority given the investments in the arena, given the investments in the team that Michael and his ownership group has made, and the city and state have made in the Hornets, Silver said.Several concerts and sporting events have been relocated from North Carolina because of HB2.Jordan was not made available for interviews.In a statement to the Charlotte Observer in April, Jordan said the Hornets are opposed to discrimination in any form, and we have always sought to provide an inclusive environment.The law excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide antidiscrimination protections. It also requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.Silver was reluctant to talk about what he wants to see changed with the HB2 law, but he did say he thinks it is a misnomer to call it the bathroom bill, as some have dubbed it.The issues that we are primarily focused on are those of acceptance and inclusiveness -- and the bill goes far beyond directing what bathrooms people should use, Silver said. From that standpoint, it has been misrepresented. Ultimately for us, its about creating the right environment, specifically for a celebratory event like our All-Star team.During the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Latta Park, Jordan spoke about recent events in Charlotte including rioting following a police shooting of a black man last month.Charlotte is a very special place for me and my family, he said. Together me and the Hornets, and the colleagues of the Hornets, will continue to work every day to reject violence, change perceptions and restore the trust between law enforcement and the community.Jordan said seeing kids at the new court gave him hope for the future.It reminds me of the great lessons that I have learned from the great game of basketball -- all of the things that the game has taught me, he said. How to learn. How work hard each and every day. The value of teamwork. The importance of communicating with your teammates, and how preparation and hard work and perseverance and what it teaches you every day.

WASHINGTON -- The final buzzer sounded, and Marylands players stormed the court to celebrate an improbable win over neighboring Georgetown. Wholesale NFL Jerseys For Sale .It didnt matter that it was only the second game of the season, or that neither team was ranked. The Terrapins had just erased a nine-point deficit over the span of 2 1/2 minutes, and it was time to revel in the moment.We just kept fighting, said Maryland guard Melo Trimble, who capped a 22-point performance by sinking two free throws with 7.6 seconds remaining in a 76-75 victory Tuesday night.Georgetown led 68-59 with 2:21 to go before the Terrapins used a game-ending 17-7 run.We beat a great team tonight, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. Except for fouling, we really guarded well.Maryland (2-0) limited the Hoyas (1-1) to 16 field goals but was outscored 37-17 at the foul line. The Terps won despite going 7 for 27 from beyond the arc and being whistled for 32 fouls.It was 75-72 when Trimble scored on a drive to get Maryland within a point. Tre Campbell then stepped out of bounds for the Hoyas after being pressured in the back court.This is how crazy basketball is: Im yelling foul at the top of my lungs, and he steps out of bounds, Turgeon said. We were very fortunate tonight.Trimble was subsequently fouled while receiving the long inbound pass, made both foul shots, and Terps freshman Kevin Huerter blocked a driving shot by Jagan Mosely just before the final buzzer.While the Terrapins celebrated, the Hoyas somberly trudged off the court.We have to grow. We have to get better. We have to learn from our mistakes, coach John Thompson III said. Just too many mental errors down at the end.L.J. Peak scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half for Georgetown and Rodney Pryor added 14.THE RIVALRY RENEWEDMaryland beat the Hoyas 75-71 last season and, with this victory, leads the series 38-27. This marked the first time Georgetown hosted Maryland since the 1993-94 season, even though the schools are only 20 miles apart.FAB FRESHMENMaryland received a huge contribution from its first-year players. In addition to getting a huge defensive play from Huerter, the Terps got 17 points from Justin Jackson and 11 from Anthony Cowan, including four free throws in the final 19 seconds.MELO SHINESTrimble scored 22 points in Marylands opener, an unimpressive 62-56 win over American that dropped the Terrapins out of the top 25.Maryland needed every one of his 22 points against Georgetown.Hes an outstanding player, Thompson said. He did what good players do -- he made plays.BIG PICTUREMaryland: The Terps showed vast improvement from their disappointing showing against American, providing evidence that this freshman-laden team will get better as the season progresses.Georgetown: The Hoyas received an ideal tune-up for the rigorous, physical play that lies ahead in the Big East. Georgetowns 37 for 42 showing at the foul line showed it knows how to take advantage of an overly aggressive defense. They do, however, need work at closing games.UP NEXTMaryland resumes play Thursday night at home against St. Marys (Md.) College, a Division III school that competes in the Capital Athletic Conference.Georgetown faces visiting Arkansas State on Thursday night at McDonough Arena, the teams on-campus facility.

On Sept. 2, UFC legend Georges St-Pierre?will make his long-awaited return to face-smashing in Kickboxer: Vengeance, a remake of the 1989 B-plus-movie classic starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.This time around, Van Damme plays Master Durand, a charismatic trainer who helps Kurt Sloane (newcomer Alain Moussi) avenge his brothers death at the hands of Tong Po, a merciless, undefeated fighter played by former WWE star turned actor Dave Bautista.MMA pros Gina Carano, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum also feature prominently in the film, which already has a sequel in the can, due next year, with a cast that includes UFCs Paige VanZant, Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho and boxing legend Mike Tyson.We caught up with GSP to chat about his role in the film, his budding acting career and the sport that continues to call his name.You play Sloanes hard-drinking pal Kavi, a comedic role that requires some acting chops. What was the experience like?It was a great experience. I take acting classes to be more well-prepared because acting is like fighting. When Im fighting, I train and spar with guys that are like my opponents. When Im acting, I have sparring partners, so to speak, that help me prepare for the scene. There are a lot of similarities between acting and fighting. Acting is a new thing for me, so I have a white-belt mentality and I think I have a lot to learn. I try to sponge as much as I can when Im on the set.Are you a fan of the original Kickboxer?Absolutely, Im a huge fan, and Im also a huge fan of Jean-Claude. Hes one of the reasons why I do what a do for a living. Hes a hero of mine. Im from Quebec, where we speak French, and Jean-Claude is a Belgian guy, The Muscles from Brussels, and at the time he was the biggest movie star where Im from. To have a fight scene with him is a dream come true.Thats right, you got to fight Van Damme, who holds a second-degree black belt in Shotokan and had a pretty solid fighting career before becoming an action star. What was it like to fight your hero in a movie?It was a dream come true to fight my idol. It was just amazing. I couldnt believe it. And Jean-Claude was very nice; he helped me to do great things to make the fight scene memorable. I remember he told me, A fight scene is great and will be remembered not only because of the action, but because of the special moments, like wearing a hat. [Van Damme dons a fedora in their fight scene.] I thought that was very interesting. Hes a very charismatic man.At his peak, how do you think Van Damme wouldve faired in UFC?Look, the truth is, to be an actor or fighter, it takes a lot of work. If he would have put his effort and energy into being a fighter, I think he could have done well. But he chose the route of being an actor, and it paid off very well; hes a Hollywood superstar.If you and Van Damme were to have squared off in the octagon while in your primes, whod come out on top?[Laughs] I dont know. Thats a lot of ifs. Who knows, if I was born at the same time as him, when UFC didnt exist, I mightve been an actor. Its hard to say.Did you ask him to do his famed leg-splits-over-chairs thing?[Laughs] I didnt ask him to do that, but he still has very good legs. Theyre very flexible. I asked him for some advice on how to stretch, to get a little bit of his dexterity. He has amazing legs.You had a whole bunch of colorful characters in Thailand -- Bautista, Carano, Velasquez, Fabricio. Whats your best story from the production?The highlight for me was getting my butt kicked by Jean-Claude. But one night, Jean-Claude took me out to eat, and I ate like a pig -- full, full, full. Afterwards, we went to a foot-massage place. We sat down in chairs -- me, Jean-Claude and his friend, the gentleman who played Tong Po in the first Kickboxer -- and a masseuse comes with a stick to massage our feet. And we were supposed to have a 30-minute massage, but we ended up passing out in our chairs for two hours! When we finally woke up, we were so relaxed. But then we took a tuk-tuk back to the hotel, and we almost got hit by a car five different times. That tuk-tuk stressed me out so bad, I wanted another massage.This is your second sizeable role in a legit movie, following Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Is acting your next career?Yeah, I really love it. Its very fun for me. And I want to learn. Im not the kind of guy who goes on set and says, You know who I am? Let me show you how its done. No, this is something that is completely different. Wholesale Jerseys Authentic. Im ready to learn and sponge as much as I can when Im on the set to increase my acting skill.Unlike fighters, actors have a union, or Screen Actors Guild, to protect them. But recently, an effort to unionize fighters was announced by an organization called Professional Fighters Association. What do you think of that effort and of fighters unionizing in general?Yeah, I heard that. In every sport, they have a union -- baseball, hockey. And its the next step in MMA. I dont think its an if -- it will happen. Its just a matter of time. Thats what I believe.The UFC recently came under new ownership. I know youre enjoying acting, but have you been in contact with any members of WME-IMG in regards to a potential comeback?Yeah, I texted Dana White when the sale got announced, and I told him, congratulations. A lot of guys are angry or jealous. But Dana White, what he did for the sport is amazing. Hes the best promoter in the world. Love him, hate him, but dont ignore him. This guy is amazing, the best pound-for-pound promoter of all time.We had some problems -- he says stuff, and I dont always agree with him, he doesnt always agree with me. But I would not have my quality of life and wealth if it were not for Dana White and the job hes done to promote the industry. Of course, he works for his interests, and as fighters we have to work for our interests, but I congratulate him because it was a masterful business move for him. Thats the goal -- when you buy something, you want to raise the bar and sell it. Im very happy for him and Lorenzo [Fertitta].Right, but everybody wants to know about your comeback. Where are you with that?Mentally, Im ready to go. I have my agents. I put my cards on the table; now theyre going to talk to the new owner pretty soon. So well have some news pretty soon. I know there are a lot of rumors, but were waiting to see what will happen.Tyron Woodley has been vocal in wanting to fight you. He says youve expressed interest in that as well, via text. Do you want to fight Woodley?Yeah, Ill fight him, no problem. I want to fight him, no problem. There are a lot of guys calling me out.Look, Im not chickening out. The problem is this: There are fights that I believe are good for me, that can elevate me, and there are fights that cannot elevate me. Some guys are like, Youre ducking. Im not ducking nobody. Im taking a fight that is good for me. There are fights that are good, fights that are not good. Tyron Woodley is a very good fight for me. Nick Diaz is a very good fight for me. Some guys call me out -- a lot of guys call me out.For example, BJ Penn, when he called me out. Im not really interested in fighting BJ Penn because I fought him two times, and hes a very dangerous fighter. Hes incredibly dangerous and incredibly skilled. And for me, I think its an unnecessary risk to take because if I win, I win nothing much -- it doesnt really elevate me more than I am now. Fighting is not about whos got the biggest balls. You fight to elevate yourself. What will a win bring you? And what will be the consequence of a loss? Thats my managers job to [figure out]. And I trust them very well.Could you be ready to fight by UFC 205 on Nov. 12 in New York?Well, Im doing the USADA testing process now. I think I do have a four-month mandatory testing to do before Im eligible to fight. And because Ive been very vocal about performance-enhancing drugs, I dont want a free pass. The last thing I want is to have an exemption, so people will say, Oh, he talks about PEDs, but he has an exemption himself. It makes me look bad, for my brand, for the person I am. So, Im in the program right now, but its four months. So I have to wait four months, unfortunately.The UFCs anti-doping program has now been in effect for more than one full year. What are your thoughts on the effectiveness of the program?Its good. A lot of guys got caught. Its not perfect, but its a lot better than it was.Are you in fighting shape now, or is Hollywood shape different than fighting shape?Im in fighting shape when I have a fight, but Im always in shape. Im just not in perfect, exact fighting shape as I would be for a fight. But Im in good shape. Im always in good shape. Im training, so to be in fighting shape wont take that long. In the snap of a finger, Ill be there. ' ' '
