Israel Adesanya expects Whittaker rematch

first_imgRelatedPosts Israel Adesanya retains UFC title Israel Adesanya in tears on UFC debut UFC: Israel Adesanya plans 42-year-old man fight New UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, believes he will eventually see former champ Robert Whitaker in the Octagon again one day. Despite knocking Whittaker out in devastating fashion in the second round of their UFC 243 main event fight, Adesanya doesn’t believe it will be the last time he meets Whittaker in the cage.“The Last Stylebender” spoke to reporters at the UFC 243 post-fight press conference and said he expects to eventually have a rematch with “The Reaper.”“I told (Whittaker) in the Octagon, ‘I’ll see you again,’” Adesanya said.The new champ said the had an emotional exchange with his rival inside the Octagon, giving the former champion praise despite some pre-fight trash talk between the two.Adesanya said: “I said, ‘I’m greater than I think I am’ cause that was my alarm for the last 12 weeks when I wake up. It says ‘UFC 243 be greater than you think you are.’ Because he said, ‘That Israel fella, he’s not as good as he thinks he is.’ So I said, ‘You don’t know how I think I am. I’m great. You don’t know me.’ So for someone to tell me how to be me, it’s not personal but I just used it as like a little fuel.“So I told him, ‘I’m greater than I think I am and so are you.’ I said I’ll see him again, definitely. He’ll definitely work his way up. I said, ‘Probably in two fights I’ll see you again.’”For now, Adesanya seems destined for a fight against top-ranked contender Paulo Costa, who has exchanged some choice words with the new champ on social media. As for Whittaker, the former champ will need to bounce back in his next fight with a win to get back in the thick of things. But like Adesanya said, Whittaker is not that far away from getting another title shot in the UFC middleweight division.“Robert’s a beast,” Adesanya said.Tags: Israel AdesanyaPaulo CostaRobert Whitakerlast_img read more

Koren urges respect in name row

first_imgHull captain Robert Koren believes respect is key to ensuring the renaming row between owner Assem Allam and supporters does not impact on-field events. Press Association Allam has swept aside fan groups who have petitioned him to reconsider the rebranding process and a formal application is now with the Football Association, which has promised to consult supporters before deciding whether to sign off the change. Home matches could feasibly become the battleground for Allam’s opponents to make their point, and Koren is keen for calm heads to prevail. “I just think everyone needs to respect each other,” said the Slovenian. “The people (at the FA Council) need to make a decision now and they will make a decision. But at the end of the day, we are players and need to do our jobs on the field. “We are just hoping the fans support us and do the right things, as they have been doing so far, on the side of the field to give us this extra lift and energy. That always matters. “The fans are doing a great job and we are pleased with that. It’s easier for everybody.” center_img Allam’s controversial proposal to replace the traditional Hull City AFC title with his preferred moniker of ‘Hull Tigers’ has proved the major talking point of the season at the KC Stadium. That is no mean feat considering manager Steve Bruce has steered an unfancied side to mid-table and overseen victories over the likes of Liverpool and Newcastle. last_img read more

Krueger: Saints don’t need to sell

first_img The latter recently said they had inherited a “difficult financial situation”, highlighted by the £7.1 million loss shown in Southampton’s annual accounts for the year ending June 30, 2013. The club also have £27million in oustanding transfer fees and, while £22million of that is due this summer, Krueger insists there is no need to sell. “We feel very comfortable that we have a plan that can deal with the situation and we are definitely not factoring in a big player sale,” he said. “We’re pretty sure that there are no more surprises and that being the case, we feel comfortable that we’re going to be good. And that we will be able to keep this group together.” Key players like Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Morgan Schneiderlin have been linked with a move away as has manager Mauricio Pochettino, but Krueger remains calm about the summer ahead. “The first thing I’d say about Mauricio is that he took his time at Espanyol [where he managed for four years], which was really important,” the Southampton chairman told the Guardian. “What really great managers do is stay in one spot until they cannot evolve there any more. “If you see managers go one year, one year, one year and then, suddenly, they are in a top league, they don’t have the foundation, possibly, to do the job. Mauricio has very carefully planned his career. “Right now, the only thing I can say, whether we speak about Mauricio or the players, is that what we have here is very good and we are doing everything in our power to keep this group together. “We are going to create a culture that this is just an excellent organisation to be a part of at all levels. “Whatever the dynamics of football or the situations that can evolve outside of Southampton do to us as we move forward, we will just keep moving forward. But there has been no talk of selling anything.” Krueger heads a recently-formed board comprised of owner Katharina Liebherr, chief executive officer Gareth Rogers and business lawyer Hans Hofstetter. The vultures may be circling overhead but Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger insists the south-coast club are doing everything in their power to “keep this group together”. Saints’ attractive, possession-based style and focus on home-grown talent has led to praise from many admirers from across Europe. Just three years on from playing in League One, the club are on course for a comfortable top-half Barclays Premier League finish but fears are mounting that the team could be broken up this summer.
