This fight will be fought at a very high pace with little room for error. Cowboy is a threat from anywhere as he is elite on the feet and on the ground. He is less interested in points and more interested in the chin of his opponent which he will hunt with aggressive combinations of punches and kicks thrown from a variety of angles.
They are both going to hunt the finish and most likely succeed. Which way it goes will be very hard to call but the damage will be done on the feet at first. They have extremely heavy hands and feet and they require just one shot to end the fight which is why their defence is crucial.
Two experienced ladies are hoping to climb the rankings in the fresh flyweight division. Jessica Eye is desperate to pick up some form after losing six of her last eight fights but has a very tricky match-up in Jessica-Rose Clark who has looked great in her two UFC performances.
The main card in Singapore kicks off in style with Li Jingliang and Daichi Abe. They are fully expected to throw down as both are looking to bounce back from a loss; Jingliang suffered his first loss in five fights which came via a decision to Jake Matthews whereas Abe suffered the first loss of his career against Luke Jumeau which was also a decision.
Golf's second major championship of the season - the U.S. Open - is almost upon so here's our in-depth preview of the action at Shinnecock Hills, including historical statistics, player form and top contenders for the trophy.
Although a Nadal - Djokovic final would have made headlines, this is the climax that tennis purists would have hoped for before the tournament began. Thiem has been the second best player on clay for some time now and is the player most likely to dethrone Rafa at the tournament he has dominated for so long.
Possessing immense power, Del Potro is capable of hitting anyone off the court on his day but facing Nadal at the French Open is the ultimate test of a tennis player's credentials. The Argentine will need to play on the edge and go for the lines as anything less will not be good enough against the King of Clay, but sustaining such a level for the duration of a Grand Slam match is a feat few have managed in the past.
The long-awaited return (well, for some) of Phil Brooks aka CM Punk is upon us at UFC 225. The WWE superstar makes his return 20 months after his less than spectacular debut at UFC 203. His status granted him his debut in the UFC but he was humbled by Mickey Gall who finished him in the first round with a rear-naked choke.
Megan Anderson finally makes her UFC debut which has been thoroughly anticipated mainly because she is one of two genuine featherweights in the UFC and Cris Cyborg’s only real threat in the division right now. She has been handed Holly Holm which is the biggest test of her credentials so far.
Thiem will be the heavy favourite here but he would be foolish to underestimate surprise-package Cecchinato, who has played some sensational tennis en route to this semi-final. The Italian fully deserved his victory over Djokovic in the last round and that will have given him even greater belief that he can keep his fairytale run going.
This is a titanic clash between a legend come gatekeeper and a former Rugby League player come heavyweight prospect. Andrei Arlovski has 43 professional fights to his name, going to war with a who’s who of former champions and beasts whereas Tai Tuivasa has had seven MMA fights – all of which he has won.
Covington has earned his stellar record dominating the majority of his opponents, all based on an outstanding level of wrestling. The decorated collegiate wrestler will have an obvious game plan and considering the calibre of his opponent, it may be the only route to victory.
The Reaper put on a clinic on how to beat Romero and doing so after an oblique kick aggravated a knee injury makes you realise he has even more to give. His biggest threats in the first fight was Romero’s explosive power in his hands, his speed and Olympic level wrestling.
Although Nadal has won every set he has played at Roland-Garros this year, he has in fact had to dig deep against some inspired opponents but that will only serve him well as we reach the business end of the competition.
