Gaethje, however, intends to thwart the plans of Khabib and others who believe in his victory, as he said on the broadcast “Morning Kombat”.
They already have plans for the future. I don’t know what, but they already say they have. I’m going to screw them up with their plans. After this fight they will change my nickname from “The Highlight” to “2020”.
On the other hand, when he said “they”, Gaethje meant a few specific people.
I’m here to ruin the day for Ali (Ali Abdelaziz, Khabib’s manager – editor’s note), Dana White, Daniel Cormier, Javeir Mendez and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Fuck them all!

To Khabib Nurmagomedov’s fight with Justin Gaethje on October 24 at UFC 254.
– An NM gold hangs high, that’s why I pose, but for me it’s really about the King’s Cup. It obviously did not work today, but I tried at least.
Furthermore, the Ulsteinvik boy said that he would very much like a justification from the jury for why Ingebrigtsen was chosen before him this time.
Following these statements, big brother Henrik Ingebrigtsen took to social media to comment on the incident. On Instagram, he posted a picture of the article with Warholm in Aftenposten and the text: “Humble statement”.
Later, Filip Ingebrigtsen also hung out via Instagram. Like his brother, he published an article in which Warholm asked for a justification from the jury. Filip Ingebrigtsen also added the following text to the post: «The reason: 3.33.93».
In his run against Warholm, middle brother Ingebrigtsen is aiming for little boy’s good time. Big brother Ingebrigtsen thinks it should all be fun first and foremost.
– It was meant as a funny comment. And that was it, says Henrik to Nettavisen.
Filip: – It was strange
Filip, for his part, explains his reaction to Warholm’s statements by saying that he was very proud of what little brother Jakob had achieved and thought it was worthy of the King’s Cup.
– I think it was a very deserved wife’s trophy and it was strange to question who was the king’s cup winner. I think you should treat each other to win prizes and do well, he says to Nettavisen.
– This year it was Jakob who ran away with the King’s Cup. As a middle-distance runner and long-distance runner, it is actually a bit like that that it is not possible for us to win it. It has never been a goal. The fact that he actually won the King’s Cup I think was so big and fun, so then it’s boring that people should question it, he says.
He thinks what little brother Jakob did during the National Championships is almost unique.
– It should be celebrated. It is usually the technical exercises and sprint exercises that have won over the years and it has never been, at least not male runners, who have won it. Both the performance and the award were well deserved, he says.
Warholm: – Must endure a little
The online newspaper has also asked Karsten Warholm how he reacted to the stings from the Ingebrigtsen brothers. The 24-year-old replies that he has put it all behind him.
– You have to endure a little, Warholm says to Nettavisen.
– When you talk, you have to endure some messages back. I do, I can stand it and there is a good atmosphere, I can assure everyone with that, he says about the case.
The president of the Norwegian Athletics Association, Ketil Tømmernes, told Aftenposten that he would not give Warholm any justification and made the following statement:
– The decision has been made in accordance with the regulations. It states that the performance is assessed, and that the decision is made on the basis of the assessment of performance, and on the basis of judgment.
Jakob Ingebrigtsen said after the award ceremony that he was surprised that the choice fell on him this time. Warholm had won the King’s Cup five years in a row before 2020.
– It’s great, it’s not anyone you compare yourself with. It’s cool to be honored in that way. As a distance runner, it is not something you think about that much, unfortunately, said little brother Ingebrigtsen, a little more diplomatic than his two brothers.
Not the first time
This is not the first time there has been a temperature between the Ingebrigtsen tenant and Warholm in connection with the awarding of a King’s Cup.
In 2017, when Warholm became world champion for the first time in the 400 meter hurdles, there was a lot of back and forth between the parties. It all started with big brother Henrik Ingebrigtsen thinking Philip’s bronze in the 1500 meters in the WC, was a greater achievement than Warholm’s gold.
– All credit to Warholm’s gold in the 400 meter hurdles. A fantastic achievement. And what he has achieved this season is just to take off his hat. But as a 1500 meter runner, I like the bronze best, explained big brother Ingebrigtsen to Nettavisen.
The feud continued during the National Championships in Sandnes a few weeks later where Warholm snatched the King’s Cup ahead of Jakob Ingebrigtsen. After the distribution, the hurdles runner shouted this in front of the press: «Where is Henrik Ingebrigtsen? Where is Henrik Ingebrigtsen? ».

According to the British newspaper, UEFA would have informed the clubs that it is missing 514 million pounds (563 million euros) in television and sponsorship income.

For example, the public was not welcome and the knock-out phase was about one instead of two duels.
In last season’s forecast, 2.5 billion was reserved for the European participants, of which 1.95 billion for the 32 teams in the group stage of the Champions League. However, all clubs now have to hand in four percent of the TV and sponsorship money for the coming years.
The Times charges for that Manchester City earned 96.2 million euros in the Champions League last season. The Citizens now receive 3.8 million less and have 92.4 million left. Also the Dutch participants in the European competitions this season Ajax, AZ, Feyenoord in PSVare affected by the measures.

Portuguese leader Joao Almeida will enter the decisive third week in a pink jersey, 15 seconds ahead. The race should end on Sunday in Milan.

I don’t know what makes Lionel Messi unable to tear the opponent’s goal anymore. One thing is certain, the 33-year-old player once said that he was not obsessed with scoring goals.
“Today I wasn’t too obsessed with scoring goals. I just tried to do my best for the team,” said Lionel Messi in an interview for La Garganta Poderosa magazine.
Even though he only scored one goal, Messi actually had two roles to make the opponent scored an own goal. First, it happened against Villarreal when Pau Torres failed to cut Messi’s pass. Second, in the match against Celta Vigo when Lucas Olaza failed to cut Messi’s bait.
While with the Argentina national team in two qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup, Messi also only scored one goal. The record he made through the execution of a penalty against Ecuador.

It is clear that Lewis Hamilton is currently the number 1 driver. He equaled Michael Schumacher’s record during the race weekend at the German Nürburgring, both of them now having 91 race victories. Hamilton can also be on a par with Schumacher this year in terms of the number of world titles. Schumacher has achieved 7 in his career while Hamilton has 6 and is on his way to title number 7.
Before Mercedes’ dominance, Red Bull was in control of the Formula 1 field. With Sebastian Vettel who won four world titles with the team from Milton Keynes. Then Mercedes came with the hybrid engine. Lewis Hamilton has now spent seven seasons with the formation led by Toto Wolff. With five world titles and on his way to his sixth in his eighth season, he seems to many to be the best driver in the world. Only Ziggo Sport commentators Jack Plooij and Olav Mol think differently.
For Jack Plooij, whether or not he wears ‘orange glasses’, Max Verstappen remains the best driver on the current grid. “Lewis is currently number 1, but Max Verstappen can become number 1 if he has the best material”, Jack Plooij starts at F1 at the table.
Frans Verschuur also gave his opinion and immediately came up with an answer. “In my opinion, Verstappen is better, but he doesn’t have the equipment. We have seen that with Fernando Alonso for a long time, so I hope that the same will not happen to Max. Lewis will never want to have him next to him,” says team boss Frans Verschuur. On.
Olav Mol over Verstappen
Olav Mol immediately compares the two drivers. He thinks Max does things Hamilton couldn’t do. “When Hamilton just went to Mercedes, Hamilton did not do what Max does now. In the period that Sebastian Vettel drove for Red Bull and took 4 world titles, Hamilton did not manage to put the fire to the shins. But from the moment that he did. car was the strongest, so was Lewis. I’m sure he is one of the very best, “said the Ziggo commentator.
