A Russian mixed martial arts fighter who has connections with President Donald Trump [url=http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-quincy-wilson-jersey]Quincy Wilson Jersey[/url] , the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin was questioned this week by the FBI, his manager confirmed Saturday.
Fedor Emelianenko was questioned by agents who met him in his hotel room on Tuesday, manager Jerry Millen said before Emelianenko’s Bellator MMA heavyweight fight against Frank Mir. Millen declined to detail his client’s conversations with the agents.
”The FBI came to the hotel looking to talk to Fedor and they were very nice, came in to speak with Fedor for a few minutes, spoke to me, very cool guys, and that’s all I can really say about it. Again, the FBI did come to the hotel, they found us, knocked on the door,” Millen said.
”Hundred percent, kind of surprised,” Millen added. ”They were very nice [url=http://www.cowboyscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jamize-olawale-jersey]Jamize Olawale Jersey[/url] , very professional.”
The agents were in attendance at Saturday’s fight, Millen said.
MADRID (AP) – Barcelona is celebrating yet another Spanish league title to cap a nearly perfect season.
Unbeaten Barcelona added to its domestic dominance by winning La Liga for the third time in the last four seasons on Sunday, remaining unbeaten after 34 rounds. Lionel Messi scored a hat trick and Philippe Coutinho added a goal to give Barcelona a 4-2 win at Deportivo La Coruna and an insurmountable 11-point lead over Atletico Madrid.
”We know how difficult it is to win this league,” Messi said. ”We were better than our rivals. There is a lot of merit to winning this title without any losses.”
Barcelona has won 26 league games and drawn eight, with four matches left.
It was Barcelona’s seventh league title in 10 seasons and 25th overall. Real Madrid, last year’s champion, leads with 33 La Liga trophies.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) – Rodrigo Koxa has been credited with a world record for riding the biggest wave ever surfed.
The World Surf League confirmed the record at its Big Wave Awards in Santa Monica on Saturday, saying its judging panel determined that a wave Koxa surfed at Naraze, Portugal, on Nov. 8 was 80 feet (24.38 meters).
The Brazilian surfer’s mark overtook the record of 78 feet (23.77 meters) which Garrett McNamara set in 2011.
”The award goes to the surfer who, by any means available, catches the biggest wave of the year [url=http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-austin-seferian-jenkins-jersey]Austin Seferian-Jenkins Jersey[/url] ,” The WSL said in a statement. ”Not only did Koxa win this year’s honor, but he now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave surfed.
Koxa described the award as ”a dream come true.”
Paralympic Games organizers hope U.S. President Donald Trump won’t find it tough to watch their events in future.
The International Paralympic Committee pointed to the growing reach of its competitions in response to comments made on Friday by Trump when American athletes from the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang were welcomed to the White House.
”What happened with the Paralympics was so incredible and so inspiring to me, and I watched,” Trump said, surrounded by members of Team USA. ”It’s a little tough to watch too much, but I watched as much as I could.”
The Paralympics in March were broadcast in the U.S. on NBC, NBCSN, and streamed on the NBC website.
”Record numbers of people around the world are not finding the Paralympics tough to watch,” IPC communications director Craig Spence told The Associated Press on Saturday. ”Billions of viewers now take in the Paralympics in hundreds of countries around the world.
PHOENIX (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation said interim coach Jay Triano is not among ”handful” of remaining candidates for the Phoenix Suns coaching job.
The person, who asked to remain anonymous because the search is ongoing, said the Suns are in the midst of second interviews ”with a handful of candidates still in the mix.”
Triano served as interim coach for all but the first three games of last season after Earl Watson was abruptly fired. Triano guided an exceedingly young and injury-plagued team to a 21-61 record, worst in the NBA and second-worst in franchise history.
Phoenix has the most ping pong balls and therefore the best chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick in next months’ draft lottery.
The Suns conducted initial interviews with a wide range of candidates, including Triano.
Veteran cornerback Antonio Cromartie announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday.
The 11-year pro with four franchises posted a message on Instagram saying ”after 27 years of playing football [url=http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-theo-riddick-jersey]Theo Riddick Jersey[/url] , today I say farewell.”
An All-Pro with San Diego in 2007, when he led the league with 10 interceptions, Cromartie was one of the NFL’s best cover cornerbacks for much of his career, making four Pro Bowls. He also scored the longest touchdown in league history, returning a missed field goal by Minnesota for a 109-yard score in 2007.
Cromartie, 33, spent his first four seasons with the Chargers, making the playoffs each year. He then joined the Jets and made the AFC championship game with them in 2010, his first of four straight seasons as a starter in Rex Ryan’s defense.
He spent 2014 with Arizona, returned to the Jets in 2015, and finished his career in 2016 with Indianapolis.
Cromartie’s ball skills, size (6-foot-2, 210 pounds) and speed made him a desirable commodity even though he was an inconsistent tackler and often gambled in coverage. The Chargers selected him 19th overall in the 2006 draft.
”To The San Diego Chargers and the Spanos Family [url=http://www.ramscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-pharoh-cooper-jersey]Pharoh Cooper Jersey[/url] , thank you for believing in me,” Cromartie wrote. ”Thank you for taking a chance on a young kid from Tallahassee, Florida who did not play much in college. You believed in my ability and my potential to play at a professional level, and I will forever be grateful.”
With the Jets in 2010, he combined with Darrelle Revis to form one of football’s best cornerback tandems.
”I grew as a player, a man, and as a leader,” he wrote of his time in New York. ”The brotherhood I built here was undeniable. My heart will forever embrace the feeling of running through the tunnel and out onto the field with my brothers. My family and I will forever Bleed Green.”
