Gary Barnidge Youth Jersey .MacDonald, ranked No. 2 among 170-pound contenders, and Saffiedine, ranked No. 9, did not shake hands or exchange words when they squared off after making weight. Saffiedine, an experienced Belgian kickboxer who fights out of California, gave MacDonald a brief nod before leaving the stage at the Scotiabank Centre.After beating Tyron (The Chosen One) Woodley last time out, at UFC 174 in Vancouver in June, MacDonald (17-2) planted his flag in the sand.One day, very soon the belt will be mine, he said in the post-fight interview.He can make it sooner than later with a win Saturday night. Welterweight champion Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks faces top contender (Ruthless) Robbie Lawler at UFC 181 in December in a rematch of their UFC 171 meeting to decide a successor to Montreals Georges St-Pierre.Its the first five-round main event for the 25-year-old MacDonald in 11 UFC fights. A native of Kelowna, B.C., who fights out of Montreal, he is a 5-1 or 6-1 favourite to win.Saffiedine (15-3), in his UFC debut last time out, won a decision over Hyun Gyu Lim in the main event of a televised card in Singapore in January. The 28-year-old Belgian used punishing leg kicks to chop away at the big South Korean, as he did in winning the Strikeforce title against Nate (The Great) Marquardt in January 2012.The card is one of two UFC shows Saturday. Iceland welterweight Gunnar Nelsen takes on Rick (The Horror) Story in the main event of a Stockholm card earlier in the day. There were no fireworks at Fridays Halifax weigh-in, although there was still some drama.Local flyweight Chris (The Greek Assassin) Kelades had just five days to make weight as a late injury replacement against Irelands Patrick (The Hooligan) Holohan.The five-foot-six Kelades towelled down thoroughly, wiping off every bead of sweat, before stripping down and getting on the scales behind a towel. He weighed in at the flyweight non-title limit of 126 pounds, punching his fist in the air and drawing cheers from the crowd when the weight was announced.Holohan, who weighed in at 125, looked like an Irish tourism commercial. He entered brandishing an Irish flag, wearing an Irish jersey and underwear in Irish colours.The two fighters, both of whom looked like they could use a good meal, exchanged words as they squared off.Toronto middleweight Elias (The Spartan) Theodorou, as befitting a man who has served as a model for a Harlequin romance cover, paused to take a selfie on stage before stepping on the scales. He faces stocky Brazilian Bruno Santos.Perhaps the happiest man to weigh in was Cuban-born Yosdenis (The Pink Panther) Cedeno. The Miami-based lightweight stepped on the scales wearing sunglasses and holding a baby ultrasound picture.The proud soon-to-be father faces Chad (The Disciple) Laprise, a native of Chatham, Ont., fighting out of Montreal. Chinas Li (The Leech) Jingliang also made the most of his time on the scales, smiling and flexing. He meets Nordine Taleb, a French-born welterweight who fights out of Montreal.

The Canadiens, playing in their second game in as many days, however, got a good performance in the end from their backup goaltender as he filled in for an injured Olympic gold medallist . Carl Nassib Jersey .J. - Percy Harvin is ready to go, and theres no question in his mind hell be playing Sunday. http://www.probrownsonline.com/authentic-corey-coleman-browns-jersey/ . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Steve Mason, Philadelphia (4) - Mason was brilliant all night long with save after big save on Benoit Pouliot, Carl Hagelin and Derick Brassard.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dick Parsons is hoping for a short stint running the Los Angeles Clippers, though ready to stay on as long as it takes. Moving the franchise away from Donald Sterling and to new ownership might require a lengthy fight, but its one Parsons thinks is worthwhile. "This is an issue thats actually bigger than just the Clippers, bigger than just the NBA in my judgment," Parsons said. "The whole world is kind of watching how, frankly, we as a country navigate our way through this crisis. So if I can help, Im happy to try." The NBA chose Parsons, a former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, as interim CEO of the Clippers on Friday. Parsons will oversee the management of the franchise and represent it at owners meetings while the league tries to force Sterling to sell following his lifetime ban for making racist remarks. With Sterling barred from anything to do with the team or league, and team President Andy Roeser on an indefinite leave of absence, the league and Clippers worked together to find someone to lead the organization along with coach Doc Rivers. Parsons, who is black, met with Commissioner Adam Silver on Monday and accepted the position Thursday. He had gotten to know Silver, then the deputy commissioner, when Time Warner owned the Atlanta Hawks, and he supports what Silver is trying to do now in his first crisis since replacing David Stern in February. "Hes a good man and hes trying to do the right thing and hes trying to do it in the right way, and he could use some help," Parsons said during a phone interview. Parsons is currently a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners and sits on the board of directors for the Commission on Presidential Debates. He has also been on President Barack Obamas economic advisory team. A graduate of the University of Hawaii, where he played basketball, Parsons earned a law degree from Albany Law School in 1971 and became a staff lawyer for New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. Jamie Collins Youth Jersey. He moved to Washington when Rockefeller was appointed vice-president, and also worked closely with President Gerald Ford. Parsons left the legal field in 1988 to become president, then chairman and CEO of Dime Bancorp, Inc. He was Time Warner chairman and CEO from 2002-08, then chairman of Citigroup from 2009-12. Silver said in a statement that Parsons "will bring extraordinary leadership and immediate stability to the Clippers organization." "Dicks credentials as a proven chief executive speak for themselves and I am extremely grateful he accepted this responsibility," Silver added. The owners advisory/finance committee has already held two conference calls since Silver banned Sterling, fined him $2.5 million and said he would urge owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise he has owned since 1981. That would require Sterling to be charged with violating the leagues constitution and bylaws, followed by a three-fourths vote of owners after a hearing. Sterlings estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep her 50 per cent ownership stake in the team, her lawyer said Thursday, and Silver said so far the ban only applies to Donald Sterling. While that potential fight goes on, the Clippers are trying to stay focused on the playoffs following their most successful regular season ever. They are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder entering Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series. Parsons said he wouldnt be involved in an ownership fight and hopes one wont even be necessary, that "cooler heads and rationality" would allow the NBA and the Clippers to work through the turmoil without a legal battle. He doesnt know how long that could take. "I know the NBA would love to get this done before the next season begins, but who knows whats going to happen? Its open ended," Parsons said. "Were here until sort of we can work our way through the point of transition."
