CAÍN VELÁSQUEZ LESIONADO, MARK HUNT DISPUTARÁ EL TÍTULO INTERINO PESO COMPLETO EN UFC 180®

21 de Octubre, 2014

CAÍN VELÁSQUEZ LESIONADO, MARK HUNT DISPUTARÁ EL TÍTULO INTERINO PESO COMPLETO EN UFC 180®

México, D.F 21 de Octubre. El UFC® anunció el día de hoy que el campeón peso completo Caín Velásquez ha sufrido una lesión de rodilla durante su entrenamiento y se ha visto obligado a dejar de lado su pelea contra Fabricio Werdum, el próximo 15 de noviembre en la Arena Ciudad de México.
Como resultado, el peso pesado No.4 Mark Hunt (10-8-1 MMA profesional, luchando fuera de Auckland, Nueva Zelanda), quien viene de su pelea en Tokio en septiembre (Ver vídeo aquí), se enfrentará a Werdum (18-5-1, luchando fuera de los Angeles a través de Porto Alegre, Brasil) en el evento principal de cinco asaltos por el título de peso pesado de UFC provisional.
“Estoy increíblemente decepcionado de que esto sucedió”, expresó Caín. “Decir que me quedé con ganas de pelear en México por primera vez ni siquiera empieza explicar lo que siento. Yo tenía tantas ganas de pelear en esa cartelera. Parece que no estaba en las cartas y que no va a suceder. Voy a enfocarme en mejorar mi rodilla [derecha] y volver al entrenamiento lo más pronto posible. Lo siento mucho por los fans en México que estaban esperando esta pelea,” agregó Velásquez.
Para Werdum nunca fue sobre Caín, sino siempre por el título. “Estoy preparado para lo que venga”, dijo Fabricio. “He estado entrenando en México por casi dos meses y tomaré el desafío que me den. Voy a llegar a la pelea preparado y presente para todos mis fans latinoamericanos”, agregó Werdum.
Mark Hunt, no es uno que suele alejarse de gran oportunidad, no perdió el tiempo de aceptar la oportunidad para luchar por el oro de UFC.
“Me siento bendecido por tener la oportunidad de luchar por otro título mundial. Esto es algo que no sucede a menudo. Primero K1 y ahora UFC – ¿cómo puedo decir que no, aunque es a corto plazo? Voy a dejar todo y volar a México mañana para prepararme para esta pelea. Tengo que ponerme en forma y climatizarme a ese entorno, lo que es realmente importante. 

”No hay nada que perder cuando estás compitiendo contra los mejores en el nivel superior”, agregó Hunt.
El UFC 180: WERDUM vs. HUNT programada para el próximo 15 de noviembre en la Arena Ciudad de México, agotó el boletaje en tan sólo 8 horas, y contará con más de 20 mil asistentes que tendrán la oportunidad de presenciar este extraordinario evento.

The NFL kicks off Week 8 on Thursday night when the DENVER BRONCOS (5-1) host the SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (5-2) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver (CBS/NFLN, 8:25 PM ET).

The Broncos and Chargers have met 10 times during the regular season since 2009, splitting the series with five wins apiece.

The Broncos head into Thursday night aiming for their fourth consecutive victory following a 42-17 win over San Francisco on Sunday Night Football. During the game, quarterback PEYTON MANNING passed for 318 yards and four touchdowns for a 157.2 passer rating. At the 3:09 mark of the second quarter, Manning threw his third touchdown of the game (eight yards to DEMARYIUS THOMAS), and the 509th of his career, surpassing BRETT FAVRE (508) for the most career touchdown passes in NFL history.

 

Manning’s milestone touchdowns:

 

MILESTONE TD PLAYER YARDS DATE OPPONENT
1 Marvin Harrison 6 Sept. 6, 1998 Miami
100 Marvin Harrison 11 Nov. 11, 2001 Miami
200 Reggie Wayne 35 Nov. 21, 2004 Chicago

“I’m very humbled and very honored. I certainly think about how grateful I am for all the teammates and coaches that I’ve played with and played for throughout my career, not only here in Denver – in Indianapolis and all the people that have helped me along the way,” says Manning. “We have the Thursday night game this week, so there’s not much of a celebration right now.”

 

Manning enters this week’s matchup with a 9-2 record as a starter on Thursday, and is the all-time leader in passing yards (3,305) and touchdown passes (35) on Thursday.

 

San Diego aims to rebound from a 23-20 loss to Kansas City.

 

“The big thing about all this is that it is a short week so we don’t have time to feel sorry about ourselves,” says San Diego linebacker DWIGHT FREENEY. “I know Denver doesn’t care about last week. We just have to focus on Denver this Thursday night.”

 

Quarterback PHILIP RIVERS passed for 205 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. Rivers is currently ranked second in the AFC with 1,961 passing yards and ranks third in the conference with 17 touchdowns.

 

Rivers has compiled a 4-1 record on Thursday, including a 27-20 victory over Denver last season. For his career, Rivers is 10-6 as a starter against Denver, and is 20 games over .500 (35-15) when starting against the AFC West. Since 2006, Rivers has the second-most passing yards (12,251) and third-most touchdowns (81) of any player in the AFC against his own division.

2015 PRO BOWL BALLOTING BEGINS ON NFL.COM

Oct 19, 2014

All-Stars to be announced on Pro Bowl Selection Show on  NFL Network on Tuesday, December 23

The polls are now open!

 

Fans can begin voting to select players for the 2015 Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald’s, the NFL announced today. Voting is available online and on web-enabled mobile phones by going to NFL.com/probowl/ballot.

 

Balloting will conclude on Monday, December 15. The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 23 live on NFL Network.

 

Players will later be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft during the week leading up to the game, which will also air on NFL Network.

 

The 2015 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 25, 2014 and televised live on ESPN at 8:00 PM ET from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, site of Super Bowl XLIX. Fans interested in purchasing Pro Bowl game tickets may go to NFL.com/probowl for more information.

 

The Pro Bowl will be “unconferenced” for the second consecutive year.

 

Last season, the familiar AFC vs. NFC match-up that had existed since 1971 was eliminated. Instead, players are selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. For example, the top six quarterbacks following voting will earn distinction as All-Stars, regardless of how many are from AFC or NFC teams.

 

Then, the NFL’s All-Stars will be realigned through a fantasy football-style draft.

 

Four leading vote getters – comprised of two offensive and two defensive player captains – will be joined by two NFL.com fantasy football champions to draft players. One of these champions will earn their spot as part of Lenovo’s Fantasy Coach of the Year program, which provides NFL.com fans a chance to be rewarded for their fantasy football skills. The other champion can compete for a Pro Bowl role by playing at NFL.com/fantasy.

 

The fantasy football champions will have Hall of Fame help. Pro Football Hall of Famers CRIS CARTER (@criscarter80) and MICHAEL IRVIN (@michaelirvin88) will serve as alumni team captains, leading the Pro Bowl team captains and fantasy football champions in the draft process.
Last season, Pro Football Hall of Famers JERRY RICE and DEION SANDERS served as alumni captains, as Team Rice defeated Team Sanders 22-21 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The game came down to the final play, as Team Sanders missed a game-winning 67-yard field-goal attempt as time expired after Team Rice scored a touchdown and two-point conversion with 41 seconds remaining.

 

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft.

 

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 19. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

 

Quarterbacks PEYTON MANNING and DREW BREES were the top two vote-getters last year, while running backs JAMAAL CHARLES and MARSHAWN LYNCHand wide receiver CALVIN JOHNSON rounded out the top five.

 

The following is a breakdown of positions and the corresponding numbers of players who will be selected (88 total):

 

OFFENSE DEFENSE SPECIAL TEAMS
Wide Receivers (8) Defensive Ends (6) Punter (2)
Tight Ends (4) Interior Linemen (6) Placekicker (2)
Tackles (6) Outside Linebackers (6) Return Specialists (2)
Guards (6) Inside/Middle Linebackers (4) Special Teamer (2)
Centers (4) Cornerbacks (8) Need Player (2-Coach’s Choice)
Quarterbacks (6) Safeties (6)
Running Backs (6)
Fullback (2)
