We start with boxing – in only his 8th UFC fight, Brazilian Knockout King Alex Pereira claimed the UFC Middleweight title with a fifth-round TKO win over Kiwi-Nigerian superstar, Israel Adesanya.

In the co-headliner at the Garden, New York city on Sunday, Zhang Weili begin her second reign as Women’s UFC Strawweight Champion when she submitted Carla Esparza with a choke in the 2nd round.

Pereira, Weili, Dustin Poirier and Michael Chandler each earned US$50,000 bonuses on the night.

UFC281 drew 20,845 fans for a live gate of US$11.6Million at Madison Square Garden, New York city.

In rugby union – Scotland scored 23 unanswered points having trailed 14-0, but the All Blacks scored two late tries against 14 men for a 31-23 win at Murrayfield overnight. “We’re disappointed we didn’t see it through. That’s the best opportunity we’ve had to beat them,” Scotland Coach Gregor Townsend said.

In football – PSG superstars, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe came through their final game before the FIFA World Cup unscathed, with Mbappe scoring in their 5-0 trashing of Auxerre at home yesterday. Messi and Neymar came off with about 15 minutes left but Mbappe played the full game.

In rugby league – Stephen Crichton’s match-winning drop goal in Golden Point extra-time for Toa Samoa to eliminate England from the RLWC final was a career first – as he is banned from even attempting them with Penrith. “I was zero from four in the NRL! Hopefully I get my licence back!”

“I’ve never hit one before. I thought I hit it short,” Stephen Crichton said of his match-winning 84th-minute drop goal. This certainly won’t be his last.

Go Samoa Go!
