.Mystic Mac The two fighters have exchanged heated word Antworten

South Africa are not ready to head home just yet, despite having just a lead of 70 with four wickets in hand going into the fourth day of the Adelaide Test. Weve got two big days left and tomorrow (Sunday) is one of the biggest ones. Theres a lot of fight. Were not on the plane yet, Neil McKenzie, South Africas batting coach, said.Those words may be dismissed as fanciful, but Australia would do well to look back to four years ago, when Russell Domingo, South Africas assistant coach then, vowed similar and was proved similar right. On that occasion, South Africa were staring at defeat on the final day, having stumbled to 77 for 4 chasing 430. They batted out a draw.Now, they will need to bat with resolve if they are to set Australia a challenging target. Hopefully Stephen Cook converts, which is what his track record shows he can do, he said. And then if Quinton de Kock can produce the Quinton de Kock knock that everyone knows he can do and has been doing, that would push us up past 180 and 200. If we can get there, we know weve done it to Australia before, where weve knocked them over so that will give us a lot of confidence.McKenzie was particularly happy for Cook, his former Highveld Lions team-mate, with whom hes worked closely on footwork throughout this tour. Cookie is just one of those hard-working cricketers; sort of old-school, he said. He does it his way. It doesnt always look pretty but has a method that has worked for him. He has got nearly 40 first-class hundreds so you cant mess with technique.Mentally he is right up there in terms of one of the toughest guys playing cricket at this stage. He has endured a lot of noise about his technique but normally what Cook does well is capitalises on starts and he has a good conversion rate. We hope that follow suit tomorrow.Even if Cook continues, he has only the tail to keep him company, but Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Tabraiz Shamsi have all showed they can contribute. Since its them that will have to do the defending, McKenzie believes they have enough motivation.Weve got a couple of guys who can do damage at the back end and we have a bowling unit who are ready to go, he said. Well leave everything out there, whether we get bowled out early or whether we battle into the evening.He even joked South Africa could get enough runs to declare again. That will be the best day of Test cricket ever, he laughed, when asked about Faf du Plessis surprise declaration on the opening day. McKenzie explained the decision was based on what South Africa saw in the Sheffield Shield, when teams declared in order to make use of the ball under lights.Its our first Test with the pink ball. We can only look at stats. We watched when the state sides played and both declared. You take a lead from what you see, he said. Commentators and ex-players were all applauding the decision and we stand by it.Wholesale NHL Jerseys Online .

McGregor v Diaz Get all the big-fight odds from Sky Bet here As news spread of his withdrawal, many fighters threw their names into the hat to replace Dos Anjos, but one in particular stood out.Back in December following a unanimous decision win over Michael Johnson, Nate Diaz launched a foul-mouthed tirade live on air calling out McGregor, claiming it would be The Big Money Fight. Diaz (right) is a replacement opponent after Rafael Dos Anjos pulled out The UFC granted the Ultimate Fighter season five winner his wish, with the companys two biggest trash talkers set to clash at the welterweight limit of 170lbs, which seems outrageous given that McGregor is the current 145lb champion.At odds of 1/5 McGregor is the overwhelming outright favourite but at such a short price I am looking elsewhere for a bet and I will first make the case for a huge upset.Could Diaz win? Diaz had called for a clash with the Irishman Diaz balances technical boxing skills with an exceptional ground game, giving him options when building his game plan for this fight.The American will have seen how often Chad Mendes was able to take down McGregor and he may see that as his big opportunity to get the win.However, having only ever been knocked out once, he may be confident enough to engage in a tactical striking contest and, at 6ft 1in, Diaz is significantly bigger than the 5ft 9in McGregor, making it the first time The Notorious hasnt had a height and reach advantage over an opponent. McGregors latest foe could be tempted to stand and trade with him At 7/2, Diaz is the significant underdog with many expectiing him to enter the Octagon out of shape, having accepted the fight at just 10 days notice.ddddddddddddHowever, to me this price is a little too big as we know Diaz has a relentless engine, fine-tuned by training for triathlons in his spare time, something which he was doing when he got the call about this fight.With 10 of his last 19 wins coming via submission, five of which were in the second round, a small bet on Diaz to win by submission in the second at 40/1 with Sky Bet should appeal to those sensing an upset.Mystic Mac The two fighters have exchanged heated words this week McGregors distance control inside the Octagon is better than anyones so, should the fight stay standing, the height and reach disadvantage is negligible.Even if the fight goes to the ground, McGregor proved against Chad Mendes, a world-class wrestler, that he can manoeuvre himself back into an advantageous position.McGregor has built a reputation of being able to correctly predict exactly when and how he will beat an opponent, earning himself the nickname Mystic Mac in the process.This time he has predicted he will stop Diaz inside the first round and he could be proven right again if he can force Diaz into making mistakes like he did to Jose Aldo in a 13-second demolition.Sky Bet have boosted McGregor to win in the first two minutes from 3/1 to 5/1, which looks a nice price when compared to the 11/8 for the first-round win, especially if you believe McGregor when he says Diaz will be hurt in the first exchange. McGregor will be seeking another swift victory at UFC 196 None of his last five fights have gone past the second round, compared to Diaz who has gone the distance in three of his. As spectacular as a first-round stoppage would be, I see this lasting longer with both to keep a vicious pace for the first round and a half.Diaz is very tough and I expect the first round to be fairly even with both fighters striking well but a 10-day fight preparation is not enough to take on arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.As Diazs legs begin to get heavy towards the end of the second, I expect McGregor to back up his claim that he is too fast and elusive for these stuck in the mud welterweights by picking off Diaz whenever he advances. Therefore my main bet is going to be McGregor to KO Diaz in the second round, which is available at 10/3 with Sky Bet.Also See:McGregor scuffles with DiazWATCH: Rockhold on McGregor ' ' '
