Oliveira, Esparza and Chandler win

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.”

Paris attacks trial: accused given last chance to speak before sentencing | Paris attacks

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. The 14 men in the dock accused of involvement in the jihadi attacks were given a last chance to speak before sentencing on Monday. Salah Abdeslam.

Texas pastor steps aside over messages with woman that ‘crossed a line’

Comment on this story Comment Matt Chandler, the lead pastor at the Village Church in Flower Mound, Tex., appeared to fight back tears as he told his congregation on Sunday that he was taking a leave of absence — a move prompted by what his church’s leaders saw as inappropriate messages between him and a woman who is not his wife. The leaders determined that the messages were not “romantic or sexual,” Chandler explained. “It was that our conversations were unguarded and unwise.” Chandler and church officials went into scant detail about the nature of the messages. He said both his wife and the husband of the woman he was messaging knew about their communications. But church leaders thought the messaging was too frequent, familiar and resulted in “coarse and foolish joking,” Chandler said. The pastor said the messages were called into question “several months ago” when a friend of the woman approached him and voiced her concerns. Chandler, 48, said he brought the co

Two plead guilty in connection to stolen diary purportedly belonging to Biden’s daughter

Comment on this story Comment correction An earlier version of this story said Project Veritas put portions of a diary purportedly belonging to Ashley Biden online. The conservative group only claimed to have the diary, excerpts of which were published by a separate right-wing website. Two Florida residents pleaded guilty in a case connected to a stolen diary that reportedly belonged to Ashley Biden, the president’s daughter, and that ended up in the hands of conservative group Project Veritas, portions of which were made public in the weeks before the end of the 2020 presidential campaign. The Justice Department announced Thursday that Aimee Harris, 40, and Robert Kurlander, 58, pleaded guilty in a federal court in Manhattan to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property involving the theft of “personal belongings of an immediate family member of a then-former government official who was a candidate for national political office.” Nearly t
