Canadian Rugby Championship in the late summer with from wxy1123's blog

Michael Bisping has never been one to mince words. http://www.stansmithireland.com/ . The middleweight contender has seemingly made a career of rubbing other fighters the wrong way. Often backlash against the brash Brit is the result of very pointed comments towards other competitors. When hes at his trash talking best, he can burrow himself under an opponents skin with relative ease. As a result, the bulk of his fights in the 185-pound division have been preceded by heated exchanges fueled by bad blood. So it shouldnt be a surprise to anyone that the lead up to his forthcoming bout with last-reigning Strikeforce titleholder Luke Rockhold has been typified by yet another war of words. When the top middleweights hopped on a media call Tuesday, it didnt take long for them to butt heads. Youve got to treat people the way you want to be treated, Rockhold told reporters. It seems like hes a p***k everywhere in life. I dont know what hes not happy about, but Im looking forward to making everyone else happy. Of course, in classic Bisping fashion, The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner didnt let those remarks go unanswered. Luke, I dont know you and I dont care for you, a fired up Bisping responded. We havent shared a single proper conversation. So youre basing your facts, or what you presume as facts, on absolutely nothing, on fresh air. You dont know me as a person. So kiss my f**king a**, you lanky piece of s**t. Ill see you in Australia, you a**hole. Ill put it all to bed then. Bisping and Rockhold will settle their grudge in the main event of UFC Fight Night 55 at the Allphones Arena in Sydney on Sat., Nov. 8. Due to the time difference, the card will stream on UFC Fight Pass in North America on Nov. 7. Though the two have yet to face each other inside the octagon, their beef stems from a sparring session in 2012. Afterwards, Bisping boasted about getting the better of Rockhold, going so far as to proclaim himself the unofficial Strikeforce champion. He later apologized, stating the remark was made in jest, but said Rockhold needs to develop a sense of humour. You cant live your life regretting every comment that youve made, Bisping said. I made a light-hearted remark and it was a joke. If he had a sense of humour he may have got that joke, because I thought that was a pretty good line. Was it a little bit disrespectful? I suppose it was. Thats why I instantly apologized. Do I regret it? No, I dont regret it. I certainly got a good laugh out of it at the time. A calm Rockhold said he hasnt let Bispings words get to him, but admitted hes looking forward to settling the score. Its definitely a bonus to shut his mouth and set the record straight on that note, Rockhold said. I dont like the guy. Im going to voice my opinion and sell the fight. Im competitive as a person, whether were talking or fighting. Im not going to lose at all to this guy. Though bragging rights are on the line between the two, their upcoming tilt will have serious implications in the middleweight division. Currently ranked No. 5, Rockhold aims to make a case for a shot at the winner of next years championship fight between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort. Following a KO loss to Belfort in his promotional debut in 2013, the American Kickboxing Academy fighter has netted consecutive stoppage wins over Costas Philippou and Tim Boetsch. He also holds a notable decision victory against top contender Jacare Souza, which earned him the Strikeforce belt in 2011. Rockhold knows theres a lot riding on his fight with Bisping. He may have nothing but contempt for the Brit, but said he wont let emotion get the better of him when the cage door shuts. If you want to see me emotional, go back and watch my Belfort fight, Rockhold said. In the lead up, I was pissed. I was emotional and you could see it in my eyes. Now Im very comfortable and relaxed. Its never going to happen again. Im never going to let emotions get the better of me. Michaels good — I cant take that away from him. Hes technical. Hes got good footwork and a lot of movement. He throws off a lot of people because hes always moving. Hes constantly circling away from the power. He knows what hes doing on the feet. Meanwhile, Bisping, who sits at the No. 9 spot, looks to keep the ball rolling after his impressive destruction of Cung Le in August. Though a victory over Rockhold would only mark his second since dropping a unanimous decision to Tim Kennedy this past April, it would put Bisping back in the title mix, a position hes all too familiar with. Bispings been close to reaching No. 1 contender status over the course of his middleweight stint, but has struggled to get over the hump. Despite suffering a slew of setbacks in the past, Bisping said hes still among the divisions elite. The fact that Ive been there so many times is a testament to my fighting ability, character and will to win, Bisping said. Ive been there several times, but most people only get there once. Ive dusted myself off and come back a better fighter. Ive truly learned from all my losses. Im still as hungry as the first day I put a pair of gloves on. I still want to be world champion. I know I can do it. Im physically in my prime and mentally Im better than ever. I still dream of being world champion and that all starts next weekend. Im one of the top guys. Ive been here a long time and Im not going anywhere. It goes without saying that failure is not an option in either fighters mind. From Rockholds perspective, hes about to put on a clinic at Bispings expense. The difference between our fighting skills is the same as the difference between our beards, Rockhold began. Im just more of a man than him. This, of course, set up yet another trademark Bisping comeback. Theres insight for you, Bisping chimed. He can grow slightly better facial hair, so hes the bigger man and going to win the fight. Good on you, Luke. Well done, youve got more pubes on your face. http://www.stansmithireland.com/superstar-foundation-shoes-adidas.html .C. -- Lewis Ratcliffe scored twice -- including the winner in overtime -- and added five assists to lift the Vancouver Stealth over the Colorado Mammoth 14-13 in National Lacrosse League action on Friday. http://www.stansmithireland.com/adidas-originals-superstar-ireland/adidas-superstar-slip-on.html .

Canadas other game in the tournament -- against Japan on June 7 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, B.C. -- had been previously announced. The contest against the U.S. Eagles will be played at the new Cal Expo Multi-Use Sports Field. Canada is currently ranked 15th in the world, while Japan is No. 13 and the Americans are No. 18. The other Pacific Nations Cup pool features No. 8 Samoa, No. 11 Fiji and No. 12 Tonga. Samoa will host Tonga on June 7 before Fiji entertains Tonga on June 14 and Fiji faces visiting Samoa on June 21. The U.S. will host Japan at the Stub Hub Center in Los Angeles on June 14 in the other Pool B game. The Pool A winner will be crowned the Pacific Island conference champion while Pool B will compete for the Asia/Pacific conference title. "The Pacific Nations Cup is an excellent opportunity for all participating teams to play some tough, competitive test matches with just over a year to go until Ruggby World Cup 2015," Mark Egan, the International Rugby Boards head of competitions and performance, said in a statement Wednesday. http://www.stansmithireland.com/cheap-air-max-90-ireland/air-max-90-grey-ireland.html. Canada will also host No. 10 Scotland at Torontos BMO Field on June 14. Canadian coach Kieran Crowley plans a trials match in B.C. a week before the first game in June so he can review the Canadian-based and overseas talent at his disposal. Domestic-based players will take part in the Canadian Rugby Championship in the late summer with Crowley selecting the cream of the crop to represent Canada in the Americas Rugby Championship in the fall. The Canadians will also have three test matches in November. Canada has already qualified for the 2015 World Cup, which opens in September 2015 in England. The Canadians will play in Pool D with No. 5 Ireland, No. 7 France, No. 14 Italy and No. 17 Romania. Fiji and Canada both finished with 3-1-0 records at the Pacific Nations Cup in 2013 but the Pacific Islanders placed first by virtue of more bonus points. The 2013 event was a basic round-robin format. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
