The Israeli prime minister has lost his presidential patronIn the four years since Bennet declared “the era of the Palestinian State” over upon Donald Trump’s poll-defying win in 2016, Bennet’s views—on the White House, at least—have gone from fringe to consensus. Where in 2016, polling showed most Israelis favored President Hillary Clinton, the vast majority preferred Trump in 2020.

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is expected to move up in weight to challenge recently crowned light heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz in the first quarter of 2021. Blachowicz has made it clear that he won’t compete before March, but Bareman hopes the fight can materialize in February.

Adesanya, who last competed in September on the same card as Blachowicz, is known to make relatively quick turnarounds and doesn’t want to wait too long.

  Romeo Crennel strong candidate to return as Texans head coach in 2021? While the Texans’ search is still in the preliminary stage, it seems Crennel could already be emerging as a real candidate to land the job. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, there is a strong possibility Crennel becomes the full-time head coach for the 2021 season.Since taking over, the Texans have shown more life on offense and competed in games. However, Houston’s 2-2 record since Crennel took over could be viewed as deceiving based on the fact the victories came against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Firing O’Brien seemed to improve the team’s morale, with an argument between J.J.

The next move for Israel Adesanya is slowly becoming clearer, with UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz having welcomed a challenge from his middleweight counterpart. Adesanya and his team have been open about his desire to challenge for the light heavyweight title, with no logical

“Look, there’s obviously a pay-per-view in March,” Bareman told Submission Radio. “We want the Jan fight as early as we can. He keeps harping on about March, so at the moment we don’t know which way it’s gonna swing. It’s still in the works.

“(We want) the earliest date in February or anytime in February, given that Israel won’t be back till the end of the December. Because he gets into the country on the 11th of December, but then he’s gotta do a two-week quarantine in a hotel. So, you can add another two weeks to that. You’re basically getting out on Christmas day. So, given he’ll already be super fit because he’s doing a lot of training over there, yeah, February.”

Blachowicz’s hands have been on full display, using his “legendary Polish power” to dispatch of three of his past four opponents, most recently Dominick Reyes at UFC 253 to win the title.

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya ' s Coach , Eugene Bareman discusses Israel Adesanya vs. Jon Jones as The Last Stylebender's future opponent and why

Adesanya (20-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC), 31, has knockout power of his own, but doesn’t cut too much weight to make the 185-pound limit and is projected to be at a significant size disadvantage when he faces Blachowicz (27-8 MMA, 10-5 UFC). Despite the weight discrepancy, undefeated Adesanya is confident that his skills will translate well at 205 pounds.

Blachowicz, 37, who at one point in his career had lost four of five, has been underestimated throughout his career, but Bareman expects doubters to creep in on Adesanya’s side too.

“What excites me is just the challenge of a great fighter like Jan,” Bareman said. “The challenge of going up a weight division. Just the whole challenge of trying to take on a task like that, another monumental task that I’m sure there are gonna be a lot of people that are gonna stack the chips against us. But it’s very motivating when you get a challenge like that. It’s very easy to pick myself up and pick my fighter up and pick my team up, because of the enormity and the challenge. Jan’s an absolute monster, but this is what we do: We slay monsters. That’s what we do for a living. That’s what excites me.”

Israel Adesanya has never had any trouble making friends and influencing people, but now there is a new group inviting him to join their circle.

UFC middleweight Israel Adesanya said the UFC spoke to his manager after his post-fight celebration at UFC 221. However, according to Adesanya , UFC brass was less than pleased with his actions after he knocked out Rob Wilkinson in the second-round of that middleweight contest.

He continued, “(Blachowicz is) the type guy that when you’re watching him fight from a distance, either from 50 meters away or 100 meters away in a stadium or through a television screen, he doesn’t give you a true indication of how good he is. In fact, it probably paints a really unrealistic picture of how good he is. I believe when you get in there with him is when you understand just how explosive he is and how also a little bit awkward he is. Because that’s the key reason he’s able to give a lot of these guys a lot of trouble, and you don’t truly understand that until you get in there. And I think it’s very easy to watch him and underestimate him.”
