featured image

Charles Oliveira made quick work of Justin Gaethje Saturday at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, winning by submission at 3:22 of the first round.

The former lightweight champion, who was stripped of his belt after missing championship weight Friday by a half pound, becomes the division’s No. 1 contender and will compete for the vacant title in his next fight.

In the co-main event, Carla Esparza did just enough versus Rose Namajunas to win via split decision and regain the strawweight title she first won eight years ago in the finale of the 20th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

The sole surviving member of a cell alleged to have carried out the November 2015 terrorist bombings and shootings across Paris insisted he was not a killer, as the nine-month trial drew to a close. “I’ve made mistakes, but I’m not an assassin. I’m not a killer. If you convict me for murder you will be committing an injustice,” Salah Abdeslam told the special court in Paris on Monday. “My first words are for the victims. I have already said sorry. Some of you will say I am insincere, that this is a strategy … as if apologies could be insincere given so much suffering,” Abdeslam, 32, added.

PGA Championship 2022 picks, predictions, field, favorites, odds: Golf expert says back Scottie Scheffler

Eight years ago, Rory McIlroy won his second PGA Championship and fourth overall major. That prompted Jack Nicklaus to say McIlroy could win “15 or 20 majors,” but the Irishman is still sitting on four entering the 2022 PGA Championship. Golf’s second major, the PGA Championship 2022 starting Thursday at Southern Hills will provide another chance for McIlroy to notch that elusive fifth major, an accolade only seven other living golfers can claim. The top two players in the world, No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and No. 2 Jon Rahm, top the 2022 PGA Championship odds at 11-1 according to Caesars Sportsbook. A total of nine golfers have 20-1 PGA Championship odds 2022 or shorter, including Justin Thomas (14-1), McIlroy (14-1) and Jordan Spieth (20-1).
