Veteran heavyweight Josh Barnett overcame an ugly eye-poke to submit Andrei Arlovski via rear-naked choke Saturday in Hamburg, Germany. Authentic Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys .Barnett (35-8) turned his back to Arlovski in the third round after he was accidentally thumbed in the left eye. Referee Leon Roberts did not see the poke and the fight continued, resulting in what amounted to a free shot for Arlovski. Barnett ate a right hand but managed to turn around and fight on.Moments later, Barnett locked in a standing kimura attempt, which allowed him to drag Arlovski (25-13) to the floor. He transitioned to mount and locked in the choke at the 2:53 mark.Im a born fighter, Barnett said. I took an eye gouge in the corner, they didnt see it. Incidental, but it was a little scary. I could feel my eye swelling up. It happens.The main thing was getting past the physical level. Andrei was strong, giving it his all. He was making me work harder than I wanted to. I was forcing punches a little too much but hey, you give me a limb, Ill take it home.Barnett, 38, called Arlovski over to stand next to him during his postfight interview. The two are former UFC champions, with nearly 40 years of professional experience combined.Andrei and I came here to give you guys a great fight and we did our absolute best, Barnett said. We tried to take each other out.The fight was certainly entertaining, as both men appeared hurt in the opening 30 seconds. Arlovski, who fights out of Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, wobbled Barnett with a right hand. Barnett answered in the ensuing exchange with a right hand of his own that buckled Arlovskis knees.The second round featured a pace much more beneficial to Barnett. He tied Arlovski up in the clinch and won a key scramble late in the round that led to him moving into mount. Barnett finished the frame on top, raining down punches, with the referee taking a close look at Arlovski.According to Fightmetric, Barnett landed 112 total strikes compared to 51 for Arlovski. He also racked up 6:25 control time, between clinches along the fence and top position.Barnett is now 3-2 in his past five, which dates back three years. Arlovski, 37, has lost three in a row, making this the second-worst skid of his career. He has been finished in all three losses.Gustafsson snaps skid against BlachowiczTwo-time light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson (17-4) earned his first win since March 2014, defeating Jan Blachowicz (19-6) via unanimous decision.In his first appearance in nearly one year, Gustafsson looked a bit rusty on the feet and suffered an early cut under his left eye. He dominated Blachowicz on the floor, however, taking the Polish fighter down with ease and racking up points with elbows and punches. All three judges scored the bout for Gustafsson, 30-27.Fighting out of Stockholm, Gustafsson converted takedowns in every round. The matchup actually favored Blachowicz standing, but Gustafsson maintained control with the wrestling. The 29-year-old is just 2-3 in his past five fights, but has come close to winning the title twice in narrow defeats to Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.Bader knocks out LatifiLight heavyweight Ryan Bader (21-5) picked up a knockout victory against?Ilir Latifi (12-5) at 2:06 of the second round, after he absolutely crushed the Swede with a knee to the head.After getting dropped by a right hand in the first round, Bader perfectly timed a step-in knee one round later as Latifi changed levels for a takedown. The shot sent Latifi flopping backwards and Bader immediately raised his arms in celebration.Its a nice rebound for Bader, 33, who was coming off a knockout loss to Anthony Johnson in January. He is 6-1 in his past seven bouts. Brian Dawkins Jersey . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. Ron Jaworski Jersey .

After months of optimism surrounding a potential new collective bargaining agreement that would allow the NBA and the players union to avoid another work stoppage, the momentum has slowed a bit as a critical date approaches. Markelle Fultz Jersey .Both sides have until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday to opt out of the current deal. If that were to happen, they would have until the end of June to negotiate a new contract. Neither the owners nor the players believe it will get to that point, with both sides seeking a deal to ensure the league keeps enjoying skyrocketing revenue and rising television ratings.Were working tirelessly, union president Chris Paul said this weekend.Many of the major parts of the deal have been addressed, including keeping the basketball-related income split the same as it is in the current agreement. There was a belief in early November that an accord could be struck by Thanksgiving, but the complex negotiations have carried on well into December.There remain a few issues for the sides to settle before a deal can be voted on, and the owners overseeing the leagues side of the negotiations planned to meet on Monday for a progress report. If the two sides do not agree to a deal by the deadline, they could implement an extension to give them extra time.While union vice president Carmelo Anthony told ESPN that he was skeptical that a deal would get done by Thursday, there remained a healthy amount of optimism from both sides of the negotiating table that a deal will eventually be reached.We still got a few days, union vice president LeBron James told reporters in Cleveland on Saturday.

Veteran heavyweight Josh Barnett overcame an ugly eye-poke to submit Andrei Arlovski via rear-naked choke Saturday in Hamburg, Germany. Authentic Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys .Barnett (35-8) turned his back to Arlovski in the third round after he was accidentally thumbed in the left eye. Referee Leon Roberts did not see the poke and the fight continued, resulting in what amounted to a free shot for Arlovski. Barnett ate a right hand but managed to turn around and fight on.Moments later, Barnett locked in a standing kimura attempt, which allowed him to drag Arlovski (25-13) to the floor. He transitioned to mount and locked in the choke at the 2:53 mark.Im a born fighter, Barnett said. I took an eye gouge in the corner, they didnt see it. Incidental, but it was a little scary. I could feel my eye swelling up. It happens.The main thing was getting past the physical level. Andrei was strong, giving it his all. He was making me work harder than I wanted to. I was forcing punches a little too much but hey, you give me a limb, Ill take it home.Barnett, 38, called Arlovski over to stand next to him during his postfight interview. The two are former UFC champions, with nearly 40 years of professional experience combined.Andrei and I came here to give you guys a great fight and we did our absolute best, Barnett said. We tried to take each other out.The fight was certainly entertaining, as both men appeared hurt in the opening 30 seconds. Arlovski, who fights out of Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, wobbled Barnett with a right hand. Barnett answered in the ensuing exchange with a right hand of his own that buckled Arlovskis knees.The second round featured a pace much more beneficial to Barnett. He tied Arlovski up in the clinch and won a key scramble late in the round that led to him moving into mount. Barnett finished the frame on top, raining down punches, with the referee taking a close look at Arlovski.According to Fightmetric, Barnett landed 112 total strikes compared to 51 for Arlovski. He also racked up 6:25 control time, between clinches along the fence and top position.Barnett is now 3-2 in his past five, which dates back three years. Arlovski, 37, has lost three in a row, making this the second-worst skid of his career. He has been finished in all three losses.Gustafsson snaps skid against BlachowiczTwo-time light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson (17-4) earned his first win since March 2014, defeating Jan Blachowicz (19-6) via unanimous decision.In his first appearance in nearly one year, Gustafsson looked a bit rusty on the feet and suffered an early cut under his left eye. He dominated Blachowicz on the floor, however, taking the Polish fighter down with ease and racking up points with elbows and punches. All three judges scored the bout for Gustafsson, 30-27.Fighting out of Stockholm, Gustafsson converted takedowns in every round. The matchup actually favored Blachowicz standing, but Gustafsson maintained control with the wrestling. The 29-year-old is just 2-3 in his past five fights, but has come close to winning the title twice in narrow defeats to Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.Bader knocks out LatifiLight heavyweight Ryan Bader (21-5) picked up a knockout victory against?Ilir Latifi (12-5) at 2:06 of the second round, after he absolutely crushed the Swede with a knee to the head.After getting dropped by a right hand in the first round, Bader perfectly timed a step-in knee one round later as Latifi changed levels for a takedown. The shot sent Latifi flopping backwards and Bader immediately raised his arms in celebration.Its a nice rebound for Bader, 33, who was coming off a knockout loss to Anthony Johnson in January. He is 6-1 in his past seven bouts. Brian Dawkins Jersey . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. Ron Jaworski Jersey .

Sky sources also dismissed speculation linking Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev with a move to Liverpool - and do not think any players will be leaving Anfield in what remains of the January transfer window.The Reds had previously opened talks with Shakhtar after chief executive Ian Ayre flew out to their winter training camp in Florida but the Ukrainian club proved difficult to negotiate with. Shakhtar Donetsk are thought to value Teixeira at £35m After the Liverpool delegation arrived for talks, the value of the player was increased to a minimum of £35m, before Shakhtar later revealed he was not for sale in this transfer window.Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin previously said Liverpool failed to meet their valuation of the player, with a £24m offer rejected before talks were halted. Who does your club need? We look at all 20 Premier League clubs and who they could sign in the transfer window It is understood Shakhtar see Teixeira as their last remaining valuable asset and they are keen to avoid a similar deal which saw Douglas Costa leave the club last summer.They feel they let Costa go too cheaply to Bayern Munich foor £24m and view Teixeira key to their attempts to win back the title from Dynamo Kiev, with both clubs level on points at the top of the Ukrainian league. Edrice Adebayo College Jersey.

HOUSTON -- Louisville coach Bobby Petrino was blunt. Randy Gregory Jersey .We blew it, he said.Duke Catalon scored three touchdowns and Houston hurried and harassed Heisman favorite Lamar Jackson all night to propel the Cougars to a stunning 36-10 victory over the Cardinals on Thursday night that dashed the third-ranked teams playoff hopes.Louisville (9-2) entered the game ranked fifth in the College Football Playoff rankings, but was outdone by a Houston team that saw its own playoff hopes foiled by two losses to unranked teams after a 5-0 start.We lost, Jackson said. Cant do nothing about it.The Cardinals were unhappy they werent ranked higher in this weeks CFP rankings after losses by several top teams last week, and some players thought they let that angst affect their play on Thursday.I think we let that get to us too much. I think we paid too much attention to the rankings instead of playing our game, safety Dee Smith said. We were just trying to do too much.Things went wrong quickly for the mistake-prone Cardinals when they fumbled the opening kickoff to Houston (9-2). Greg Ward threw his first touchdown pass on the next play to make it 7-0. Brandon Radcliff lost a fumble later in the first and Houston added a field goal on the ensuing drive to make it 10-0.Jackson threw for 211 yards and a touchdown, but it didnt come until the second half.Houston then scored touchdowns on three straight possessions in the second quarter to push the lead to 31-0 at halftime. Catalon caught a touchdown pass, ran for another score and Houston got the third score in that span on a 50-yard pass by receiver Linell Bonner after a lateral.We were banged up. We were beat up. We were tired. We were exhausted in the month of October, Houston coach Tom Herman said. Thats not an excuse. Thats reality. And our guys fought through it and they fought through that adversity and they never wavered ... and when you get the band back together and you get everybody healthy and everybody fresh and everybody doing their job ... we can play with anybody in the country. And we proved that again tonight.The Cougars were in Jacksons face constantly, sacking him a season-high 11 times and keeping him from hurting them with his feet. He ran for a season-low 33 yards after piling up 338 yards rushing combined in the last two games.After Jackson was sacked for the 10th time he threw up his hands and two of his lineman looked to be yelling at each other about who was to blame for his latest takedown.But the Cougars werent done getting after him just yet. On the next possession he threw the ball away while under heavy pressure from Tyus Bowser and was flagged for intentional grounding, giving the Cougars a safety.Petrino said he saw frustration build in Jackson as the sacks piled up.Oh yeah, there was frustration there, he said. There was frustration on the protection and frustration on himself -- missing a few throws. Thats one of the things on the sideline there definitely was frustration and it grew.Ward threw for 233 yards and two touchdowns to help the Cougars to the victory that left Cougar fans storming the field to celebrate.---=THE TAKEAWAY=LOUISVILLE: The Cardinals may not have made the playoff even if they didnt lose on Thursday night, but the opportunity was theirs for the taking. Now they only have themselves to blame for being on the outside looking in.HOUSTON: The Cougars looked like the team that knocked off then-No. 3 Oklahoma in their opener instead of the underperforming one that lost at Navy and SMU to fall out of the top 25 weeks ago. The victory, which was their fourth straight over a top-10 team, will go a long way toward put a positive spin on what had turned into a disappointing season.---=KEY NUMBERS=The Cardinals set a season-high with 15 penalties, punted a season-high six times by halftime and the 11 sacks they allowed were more than double their previous season-high. Its the fewest points theyve scored since a loss at North Carolina in 2011.---=HEISMAN HOPES=Jackson entered the game as such an overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman that the loss shouldnt put that big of a dent in his chances. However Jackson insists that he isnt concerned about that.Im not even focused on that, he said. Im focused on winning.---=POLL IMPLICATIONS=LOUISVILLE: This loss will send the Cardinals tumbling down in the poll and in the playoff rankings. Theyll likely drop out of the top-10 but could stay in depending on how the teams above them fare this weekend.HOUSTON: The Cougars are likely to re-enter the poll after being unranked since the week after their loss to SMU on Oct. 22. They had the most points of any team not ranked last week so it wouldnt be surprising for them to move up to No. 20 or so after the big win.---=UP NEXT=LOUISVILLE : The Cardinals wrap up the regular season with a rivalry game against Kentucky next Saturday.HOUSTON : The Cougars travel to Memphis on Friday for their regular-season finale. Tyron Smith Jersey . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. Damien Wilson Jersey . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. http://www.cheapcowboysjerseyssale.com/?tag=jay-novacek-jersey-sale . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged.

Martin has said he will not detail Thornwells transgression, calling it a mental mistake.The Post and Courier of Charleston first reported Thornwells arrest.A team spokeswoman said Tuesday nothing had changed with Thornwells suspension and would not say if the arrest figured into the discipline.The 16th-ranked Gamecocks (8-1) lost 67-64 to Seton Hall at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.Thornwell, from Lancasteer, was seen making an aggressive lane change while driving in Cayce not far from campus on May 22, according to the report. Michael Gallup Jersey. The officer who stopped Thornwell said he found his driving privileges in South Carolina were suspended for two failure to pay traffic offenses.The officer said in the report he detected the odor of marijuana in the car and uncovered two blunts.Martin said last week that Thornwell would return to the court, but did not say when. He has continued to practice and travel with the team.Thornwell had averaged 18.7 points and 6.7 rebounds this season, helping South Carolina to victories over then No. 25 Michigan and No. 18 Syracuse in a four-day stretch last month.
