Blizzard said it will never happen, but it is happening: World of Warcraft is becoming a traditional server that mimics Azeroth because it existed in 2006. Known as the "World of Warcraft" classic, this remake aims to rekindle the dissatisfaction of so many people. We are until late at night. It is coming soon. Its launch means that a few years ago we will evoke memories of Warcraft, which some players can't stand.

World of Warcraft Vanilla Launch - Bringing players to World Of Warcraft Classic Gold a distant place and dramatically changing the core game before the expansion pack - is one of the most critical moments in PC games. But this also raises a lot of questions: Which patch will Classic be based on? How will the update work? What is the release date of WoW Classic? What is the cost? I believe many players are curious about this.

Below is our understanding of WoW Classic, including release date, update schedule, and more. Everyone can see it.
When is the release date of WoW Classic?

Blizzard said that World of Warcraft will be launched this summer, and now we have a date: August 27. The closed test will begin on May 15th, which means they have enough time to prepare new content, if you are interested, you can sign up here.
Next, what is Warcraft Classic, what is it?

"World of Warcraft" is actually different from the game that was first launched in 2004. Through the cycle of continuous updating and expansion, the entire continent is increasing, and the role category has been refurbished several times. There will be more new content, no need to worry about boredom, many people like these changes (modern World of Warcraft is easier to obtain than ever), but there are some old players who miss the history of World of Warcraft and their past playing style.

Before the release of WoW Classic, a very popular private server illegally imitated the World of Warcraft that existed in 2004. But now Blizzard is creating an official version of the program that is supported by continuous updates. Therefore, everyone still has to attach great importance to genuine, genuine can bring some better experience.

"World of Warcraft" is almost entirely a re-creation of "World of Warcraft" because it existed in 2006, just before the first expansion of the "Burning Crusade." This means that World Of Warcraft Classic Gold the battle will be slower, more deadly, and more exciting, so that each player can fully experience the wonderful moments in the game. The mission will be less intuitive and dynamic, and traveling around the world will take longer. At the same time, World of Warcraft will reproduce many of the favorite MMO brands. I don't know if you expect it?

Maybe these scrolls no longer will work? Upgrades may have prevented them? It's just strange I'd still have them in my inventory, that you can still apply themthat they could fail and ruin items, and they can appear to Maple Mobile Mesos succeed but really not apply any of the enhancements while still using slots up.

I was planning to use them on some unimportant lower level equipment but if they won't work I will just toss them. I want to make room in my inventory.

There are multiple issues with the chat features in game now.There is a chat delay when logging ever since the log in was"revamped". Buddies, guildies, and allimates see the announcement that a individual has logged on and greet them around 45 seconds before a individual really lands and may see chat. The chat people enter between entering pic and landing isn't visible on screen. This contributes to missing greetings and individuals thinking they are being discounted.

Guild chats become busted for a while after someone leaves or joins a guild. Noone can view anything typed by a different player. Additionaly, guild chats randomly split for different people at different times. Occasionally conversations appear for a single person and not another or only some peoples chat will show up for others. This makes having discussions difficult. It also results in having to earn alliance conversation spammy with things that should be said in guild chat.

When I have deleted someone off my friend list I damn well wish to maintain them deleted. I don't want them to see my chat or maybe to buy MaplestoryM Mesos view their conversation. At times people will see friend chat free of ign attached to it. I know the last time this occurred it was somebody who was previously on my BL speaking on another character.There is major chat lag. Sometimes, something someone types in bl doesn't show up for anywhere from 1 to 30 minutes. Individuals have a message about chat servers being active.

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: 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. . -- 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. Winning feels great, but you can learn a lot from losing and competing. Cheap Air Max 1 Australia . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side.

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.)

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. ' ' '

Some bettors in Las Vegas put big money on Golden State to win next years NBA championship in the days leading up to Kevin Durants July 4 announcement that he was leaving Oklahoma City to join the Warriors. Yeezy 350 v2 Sesame For Sale .On July 3, the Westgate SuperBook took a $20,000 bet on the Warriors at 3-2 to win the 2017 title. Westgate bookmakers treated the bet as an educated-guess wager and adjusted Golden States odds accordingly.MGMs sportsbook also reported notable action on the Warriors in the days leading up to Durants decision, including a half-dozen four-figure bets on Golden State at 3-1, MGM assistant manager Jeff Stoneback said. The flurry of action at the MGM subsided on the Fourth of July after Durant was officially a Warrior. But by the time it was over, three times more money had been bet on Golden State than any other team.We got popped on the Warriors right before he announced, Stoneback said. Most of the bets came Saturday and Sunday, and then we got some more on the Fourth.A week after Durants decision, the odds to win the 2017 championship have stabilized, with the Warriors sitting as the odds-on favorite at around 2-3 at most shops. The defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers are next at 5-2, followed by the San Antonio Spurs at 8-1.Without Durant, Oklahoma City is now 30-1 at the SuperBook and 20-1 at the MGM.We had quite a few tickets on the Thunder at 5-1, Stoneback said. Those poor people now can be getting 20-1.The SuperBook moved the Chicago Bulls from 100-1 to 80-1 with the addition of Dwyane Wade, while dropping the Miami Heat from 25-1 to 80-1.The SuperBook is offering the Warriors at -150 or the field at +130 and opened a season-win total on Golden State at 68.5. The bulk of the early action is on the field, according to SuperBook assistant manager Jeff Sherman, and the win total has been bet down to 67.5.The South Point sportsbook is offering a prop bet on the Warriors and Cavaliers versus the field. Golden State and Cleveland are -220 favorites over the field.William Hills Nevada sportsbook has a prop on who will have the higher regular-season scoring average: Durant or two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry. Durant opened as a -175 favorite. Cheap Yeezy 350 Shoes . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Yeezy Wholesale Authentic . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. HOUSTON -- Limiting pitching changes, restricting defensive shifts, altering the strike zone and installing pitch clocks are among the ideas Major League Baseball may consider as it undertakes a multiyear review of the game that could include the sports most radical changes in decades.Baseball owners were given a lengthy presentation Thursday during their quarterly meeting of how the sport has changed in the past 40 to 50 years.Sometimes baseball fans think about what should happen with the game sort of with an artificial construct, that the choice is between preserving `The Game, as it came down originally from the mountain, and making some changes to that game, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said.The point of the conversation today was that the game has changed dramatically. Its changed organically. It kind of has flowed where the competitive juices of managerial and general managerial decisions have taken it. And the question is, you take a snapshot after 40 years of that and you say, wow, heres what it looks like, heres what it used to look like and should we be thinking about what has occurred and whether we want to allow it to continue to go on on the path its on?If implemented, some of the changes could be the most revolutionary since the AL adopted the designated hitter in 1973 or perhaps even since the number of balls for a walk was reduced from five to four in 1889.I think its kind of ridiculous. It changes the game completely, Orioles reliever Brad Brach said before Baltimore hosted Houston on Thursday night.Orioles catcher Matt Wieters wasnt too enthused, either.I dont like things that would actually change the way the game is played. If you make the game shorter without changing its integrity, Im all for it. But the things that are being talked about can mess with the integrity, he said.Offense dropped steadily after the start of drug testing in 2003 until an uptick started in the second half of last season. Strikeouts have set records annually for much of the past decade, increasing from an average of 12.74 per nine-inning game in 2006 to 15.57 this season.And the average time of a nine-inning game is exactly 3 hours -- Manfred highlighted that Game 7 of the 1960 World Series took 2:36 for Pittsburghs 10-9 win over the New York Yankees.Manfred acknowledged some of the increased length was caused by added TV commercials.We did not and we are really not at the point of making recommendations or having the owners make decisions about what if any changes are necessary, Manfred said.I think when you have sort of a new administration, its a good time to take a really hard look at the product. I think there are pieces to this project that are not yet complete, including figuring out what are fans are seeing, what they like, what they dont like in a more comprehensive way than weve done in recent years, having interactions with the other stakeholders in the game, the ESPNs, the Foxes, the Turners, our big partners, and sharing with them how we see the product and getting their reaction, he said.AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel of the Astros was wary.All of those you could argue for. But then again, its changing the culture of the game of baseball and what fans have been accustomed to. That would be a bad thing because you want the best hitters facing the best pitchers, he said.Chief Operating Officer Tony Pettiti made the presentation with Senior Vice President Chris Marinak and Steve Hirdt of the Elias Sports Bureau.Manfred said defensive shifts have changed the game: There werre 2,464 on balls in play in 2011 and this years total projects to 28,117, according to Baseball Info Solutions. Yeezy 350 Sale Online. Pitchers per nine-inning game have increased from 6.89 in 2000 to 7.88 last year.You can make an argument that more relievers have lengthened the game, more pitching changes has slowed the pace of the game and the unbelievable effectiveness of those relief pitchers have robbed some of the action from the game, Manfred said.MLB is unlikely to propose altering the height of the pitchers mound, which was lowered from 15 inches to 10 inches after the 1968 season.Because the height of the mound does changes peoples delivery and we have a lot of pitcher issues in terms or injury and whatnot, probably would be a little slower to move in that direction, Manfred said.While MLB can make on-field rules changes unilaterally with one year advance notice, it has done so in recent years only with approval of the players association.While Manfred would like to see pitch clocks, which have been used successfully in the minor leagues since 2015, the union has been reluctant, leaving the matter for this years bargaining.Theres too many scenarios within a game that depend on either the pitcher or the batter to take a little extra time and if you get penalized for that, Boston pitcher Clay Buchholz said. I dont see how thats going to make the game any better. Its going to actually cost people some jobs, I think. No, I dont think Id be in favor of that.But the commissioner is the commissioner, he can do what he wants to do. If that happens, then Ill abide by it and go from there, he said.The current contract between owners and players will expire Dec. 2.The CBA process is kind of where you expect it to be in August, Manfred said. Weve got a nice, compete inventory of issues on the table from both sides. Weve had a good, respectful exchange at the table and were moving into that phase where I think were going to start trying to package some things up and hopefully start to make agreements on issues and move towards a final agreement. The pace of that depends, always depends, on how both parties see the relevant timing deadlines.Owners approved the sale of a controlling stake in the Seattle Mariners from Nintendo of America to a group of minority owners led by Western Wireless Corp. founder John Stanton, who will be the control person, and retired Microsoft executive Chris Larson.Bob Bowman, MLBs president of business and media, reported on the split-off of BAMTech from MLB Advanced Media and the agreement announced Aug. 9 to sell a 33 percent interest of BAMTech to The Walt Disney Co. for $1 billion, with part payable now and the remainder in January. Disney, which owns ESPN, gets an option to acquire majority ownership in the future. The NHL receives a minority interest in BAMTech under an agreement announced in August 2015.Manfred expects to have an announcement quite soon on baseballs investigation into a December report by Al Jazeera accusing high-profile athletes of using performance-enhancing drugs, among them Philadelphia first baseman Ryan Howard and Washington first baseman Ryan Zimmerman. The lawyer for Howard and Zimmerman, William Burck, called the report outright lies.Former major league catcher Taylor Teagarden, another player implicated, was suspended for 80 games in April.---AP Sports Writers David Ginsburg and Noah Trister contributed to this report.

The Southeastern Conference is down to one playoff contender. Air Max 270 Cheap Online .Defending national champion and top-ranked Alabama is a lock for its third straight berth if the Crimson Tide can beat No. 15 Florida in the SEC championship game Saturday in Atlanta, and may not even need to win.`Bama much prefers the first scenario.Winning the SEC championship is something thats really important to us and we think a very, very significant accomplishment, Alabama coach Nick Saban said Sunday. Thats kind of one of the goals that we have. Whatever comes beyond that, comes beyond that but our focus needs to be on this game.The Gators (8-3) were playoff longshots even before Saturday nights 31-13 loss to rival Florida State but could have made a case with two huge closing wins. They emerged from a topsy-turvy SEC East to earn a title game rematch.I gave them until 3:45 in the morning, which is when we unloaded the bus, to think about it and then erase it and learn from it, said Floridas Jim McElwain, the first coach to lead a team to SEC championship games in each of his first two seasons.He wanted them to start preparation realizing that theres a whole bunch of people that wish they were playing on this championship weekend.Nobodys surprised that the Tide (12-0), the last unbeaten team from a Power 5 conference, is back in the Georgia Dome. `Bama players werent particularly interested in talking about their playoff prospects after Saturdays 30-12 win over rival Auburn.We just worry about the next game, linebacker Ryan Anderson said. Teams that start worrying about the Final Four and all that, they get beat.The SEC championship winner has played for a national title or made the playoffs in eight straight seasons.Here are some story lines to watch in the SEC championship game:FAMILIAR FOES: The winner will take the lead in this frequent SEC championship matchup. Florida and Alabama have split the previous eight meetings dating back to the games debut in 1992. Five times the winner has gone on to win a national title, three for the Tide and two for the Gators.Alabama won 29-15 last season en route to a national title.Its two storied programs and two programs that year in and year out expect to be in Atlanta, McElwain, a former Tide offensive coordinator, said.TOUGH DEFENSES: The two best defenses in the league will take on offenses that have been less consistent. The Tide leads the nation in run defense, scoring defense and total defense The Gators rank third in pass efficiency defense and fifth in both points and yards allowed.The Tide hasnt allowed a touchdown in the last 267 minutes, 54 seconds of game time, dating back to the third quarter of the Texas A&M game on Oct. 22.OFFENSIVE ISSUES: Alabamas offense has been prone to stopping itself at times, including two Jalen Hurts interceptions in the first half against Auburn. The Tide also fumbled four times in the half but recovered all of them. Those kinds of things could come back to haunt them in their bid for titles. Florida has perhaps more serious offensive concerns after gaining just 207 yards against FSU, including 58 on the ground.SHERIT OUT: McElwain said starting defensive end Jordan Sherit wont play in the game. He sustained an apparent right leg injury against FSU.---More AP college football: and Nike Air Max 270 Wholesale . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence.

The 33rd Maui Invitational tips off Monday and will feature another field loaded with basketball powers. Nike Air Max 1 Discount .This years field --?Oregon, Tennessee, Georgetown, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State, UConn, North Carolina and host Chaminade -- consists of teams that have a combined 14 NCAA championships, 40 Final Four appearances and 192 NCAA tournament appearances.?The winner in Maui has gone on to win the national title four times, with UConn in 2010-11 the most recent. North Carolina has won the Maui title three times.UConn and Oklahoma State play in a quarterfinal at 9 p.m. ET on ESPNU and WatchESPN. The winner will play either No. 5 North Carolina or Chaminade on Tuesday.?UConn is making its fourth overall appearance in the Maui Invitational, and has twice won the event. The Huskies are 8-1 all-time in Maui. The last time they won the tournament was during the 2010-11 season when they were led by Kemba Walker, who averaged 30 points per game in the tourney.?The Huskies, which started 0-2 before a win against Loyola Marymount, had not lost their first two games to open the season since 1968. Their defense remains a mainstay as they are holding teams to 37.6 percent shooting in three games.But the problem resides on offense, as UConn is shooting 38.9 percent, including 60.8 percent from the free-throw line, and is averaging only 61.3 points per game. The Huskies led the nation in free-throw shooting at 79.3 percent last year.?The Huskies, who are likely without freshman guard Alterique Gilbert (shoulder) for the tournament, are led by transfer Terry Larrier and his 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.

First-place New York City FC was admittedly worn down after a run of three games -- including two wins -- in eight days. New York City coach Patrick Vieria knew by the time he finished watching his teams performance in a 3-1 loss at Sporting KC on Monday, it needed a break.It was important for us to recover physically and mentally, Vieria told teams website. We had three games in a week and we spent a lot of energy. And thats the reason why I gave them two days off.New York City will see if the time off pays off Sunday, when it travels to Montreal for a 5 p.m. ET, nationally-televised match with the short-handed Impact.New York City boasts the best road record in the MLS at 5-3-1. The Impact are 4-1-3 on their home pitch, but will be without suspended star midfielder Ignacio Piatti.MLS suspended Piatti after reviewing a two-footed takedown of Portlands Alvas Powell last week. It was changed from a yellow to a red card, sidelining Piatti against New York City. He leads Montreal with 11 goals, second in the MLS behind New York Citys David Villa, who has 12 goals on the season.Without PPiatti, New York Citys focus will turn to Montreal forward Didier Drogba, who will be available Sunday, after missing his last three games with a thigh injury. Nike Air Max 1 NZ. Hes one of the best players in the world at his position, Vieria said of Drogba. When you look at the number of finals that he played, the number of goals that he scored in the finals, just how good he is. I think hes a player that has always shown up in the big moment, and hes a threat for the 95 minutes. Its exciting to face him again. I think as a team well have to be really strong and well have to concentrate for the 95 minutes.Montreal (6-4-8) is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings, trailing New York City by four points.The teams battled to a 1-1 draw in an April 27 meeting at Yankee Stadium. Montreals Dominic Odura scored the equalizer in stoppage time in the draw. R.J. Allen scored for New York City.New York City won two of three games against Montreal last season. ' ' '

MS Dhoni has asked for more patience to be shown with Indias inexperienced middle order after they couldnt complete a chase of 261 on a sluggish Ranchi pitch. Air Jordan 6 Cheap Australia . Dhoni backed the young players to find their own method of finishing games, even if it meant going for big shots, referring to the dismissals of Manish Pandey and Hardik Pandya at a critical juncture. While Pandey lofted a slower ball from Tim Southee to mid-on, Pandyas inside-out strike off Mitchell Santner was pouched by Tom Latham at long-off, and with this wicket India had slipped from 128 for 2 to 167 for 7.Cricket has changed, people like to play big shots. It is important to not tell them to stop playing the shots; you dont want them to go into their shells, Dhoni said at the presentation ceremony. They played their shots when the ball was in their area. The Nos. 5 and 6 are quite new, they will learn their own way. Some will play big shots, some will take it deep. Once they have played 15-20 games, they will figure out what works for them.Dhonis post-match press conference was along the same lines; he reiterated the difficulty of batting down the order on such a sluggish pitch. Its important they get games like these and finally theyll figure out a way what suits them best to chase down a total like this, he said. Unless they get an opportunity like this it will be very difficult because thats how you get experience. You can learn a lot by watching but ultimately when you feel the pressure and go through that motion, thats where you learn a lot. It will be a good learning curve for them. Give them some time.Dhoni saw parallels with the defeat in Delhi, and said the loss of wickets in clumps hurt the team. He also hit out at Indias profligacy with the ball - they conceded 13 wides in the afternoon. I think it was the first 10 [overs] where we gave away a lot of runs and the extras, he said. The wicket was best to bat on in the afternoon, and it kept getting slower and slower. On a wicket like this when the score is not too much - we were not chasing anything over 6.5 or 7 runs an over - you need partnerships.Also, you need to realise that with two balls it initially comes on to the bat better and as the game progresses the wicket slows down and the ball doesnt come that well. Thats where it becomes difficult to freely rotate the strike.Indias innings received an early jolt after Rohit Sharma was dismissed in the fifth over. But, the chase was kept on track by Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, who put on 79 runs for the second wicket. However, once Kohli was caught behind attempting to cut Ish Sodhi, Indias innings fell apart. Dhoni disagreed with the suggestion that Indias chases were overly dependent on Kohli.If you see the last one to one and a half years, we havent played a lot of ODI cricket, he said. In between we had Zimbabwe, we had three games so… I can say that the stats actually dont reflect the exact scenario because also in that period I have batted at a different position and our top order was batting brilliantly. So everything is very different. Just in this series, if you see, there have been a couple of games where the wicket was on the slower side.Its when the wickets are slow and when the required run rate is not high, you calculate and at times you play out a few overs thinking if you have a partnership at this moment, with more wickets in hand in the last few overs, you can look to chase down something thats even seven to seven and a half [runs per over]. We have got quite a few batsmen who can do the job. Its just that we have to give them more time. Batting down the order is one of the toughest things to do. You dont get a [ready-made] player whos complete, who bats at No. 5, 6 or 7, all the time. Wholesale Air Jordan 6 Australia .
