This wasnt supposed to happen. Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey . Ahead of the light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, the UFC tried selling fans on the idea about this potentially being a competitive matchup. Pundits and even the odds-makers would tell a different story, some betting sites capped Jones at one point at -850 (Bet $850 to win $100). But clearly thats not what ensued on Saturday night. From the moment the bell rang, the 26-year old Swede turned the fight into Jones most competitive matchup to date. Using his reach, effective striking and take downs, the Alliance MMA fighter displayed fearless confidence and won over the audience in the Air Canada Centre after five rounds of action. While his performance didnt earn him the victory on the judges scorecards (losing 47-48, 47-48, 46-49), it did immediately spark up debate as to whom Jones next opponent should be. "Who doesnt want to see this rematch?" said UFC President Dana White at the post-fight press conference. "Id like to do the rematch it makes sense, but we have to wait to see what happens -- maybe it is Glover (Teixeira), maybe it is a rematch, I dont know." In my opinion the answer is simple. Book the rematch between Jones and Gustafsson sometime next year and have that event held in Europe. The aftermath of Saturdays main event was a potential fight of year candidate and a winning lottery ticket at the promotions disposal. In order to cash that ticket, they need to carry this momentum over into Jones next fight. Pundits will argue that Glover Teixeira is a more real candidate as hes currently undefeated inside the octagon and most recently dispatched fellow top contender Ryan Bader via first round stoppage earlier this month. The problem with that is who does Gustafsson square off with next? Phil Davis has won three straight, but theyre now fellow teammates and already fought back at UFC 112. Lyoto Machida has dropped to middleweight, Dan Henderson is fighting Vitor Belfort, Thiago Silva and Matt Hamill have both fought Gustafsson recently. Its possible the winner of Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen could be next in line, but are they deserving being 1-2 in their last three fights? I dont think so. While no doubt the 33-year old Teixeira has earned his spot, a matchup with Jones right now would kill any potential of Gustafsson emerging as a European superstar for the promotion. Not since the days when Andrei Arlovski held the UFC heavyweight title back in 2005 has the promotion had a European champion. One of the challenges for the UFC in recent years has been marketing European fighters and after Saturday night, they certainly have an ideal candidate. Hosting a main event fight in Europe against Jon Jones would do big things for the UFC on a global scale and lets hope they make the right decision. Mika Zibanejad Jersey . After a tight first half, the Croatians took command in Reykjavik after Skulason was dismissed for a professional foul in the 51st minute, but couldnt find a way past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson and his packed defence. Eduardo had a weak shot cleared away from near the goalline after barely a minute for Croatia, whose substitute Ivica Olic forced a fine reaction save from Halldorsson in the 55th. Ron Greschner Jersey .C. -- Steve Spurrier was much happier about South Carolinas improved performance than about his lastest career milestone. http://www.rangershockeyonlineshop.com/ ... ey-jersey/ . Off-Season Game Plan looks at the Capitals possible summer plans, with the understanding that its tough to plot a direction without a general manager or head coach around which to set those expectations.PHILADELPHIA - The family of the late NFL star Junior Seau plans to object to the proposed US$765 million settlement of player concussion claims because the fund would not pay wrongful death claims to survivors. Although the players lawsuits accused the NFL of concealing known concussion risks, there would be no blame assessed as part of the settlement, and no punitive damages for pain and suffering. "Mr. Seaus children have their own claims for the wrong the NFL did to them. His children are not suing for their fathers pain and suffering, they are suing for their own," lawyer Steven M. Strauss wrote in a court filing Friday that signalled the familys intent to pursue an individual lawsuit. Other potential critics to the settlement reached by players lawyers and the league are also starting to emerge — and the judge overseeing the case has herself expressed doubts the sum is big enough. About 50 plaintiffs lawyers met in New York last week to learn more about the settlement from the lead lawyers, but some left dissatisfied. "This could be a great settlement, this could be a terrible settlement, but I dont know," said Chicago lawyer Thomas A. Demetrio, who represents 10 players, including the family of the late Dave Duerson, a four-time Pro Bowler who mostly played with the Chicago Bears. Duerson fatally shot himself in the chest, leaving his brain intact for autopsy. Like Seau, he was diagnosed with CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy. An honours graduate and trustee of the University of Notre Dame, he was 50 when he died, which would factor into his familys payout. "His estate will receive $2.2 million. Thats not adequate," Demetrio said. U.S. District Judge Anita Brody, who must weigh the deal, also wants more actuarial details than filed with the settlement papers. She preliminarily rejected the plan last month, questioning whether $765 million will be enouugh to fund about 20,000 claims involved for 65 years, as promised. Sergei Nemchinov Jersey. The architects of the plan argue that the players could end up with nothing if the lawsuits are thrown out of court. The NFL had argued that the claims belonged in arbitration. The retirees would also have to prove their injuries came from NFL concussions, and not those suffered earlier. "The retired player community has provided overwhelming support for this agreement, and we look forward to finalizing it soon so they can begin taking advantage of its benefits," lead lawyers Christopher Seeger and Sol Weiss said in a statement Monday that recognized the work of other lawyers on the case. The NFL settlement, if approved in court, would be capped at $4 million on behalf of players diagnosed after their deaths with traumatic brain injury. The payments could go as high as $5 million for younger men with Alzheimers disease, but many more plaintiffs with mild dementia would get $25,000 or less under the deal. Demetrio wants to know how much of the NFLs payment will come from insurance, and why the lawyers would split another $112 million, when the case did not reach discovery or trial. The NFLs annual revenues top $9 billion. "Its very, very unusual ... for all the plaintiffs to not know whats going on," Demetrio said. "Theyre acting like the Lone Ranger." The Seau Family, meanwhile, is also concerned that the deal calls for a stay on individual suits until all appeals are finalized with the settlement. "Junior Seaus children could be forced to wait years for justice, while the NFL continues to make billions of dollars and the memories of witnesses grow ever more distant," the filing said. The NFL, which on Monday joined two U.S. lawmakers in pushing for legislation to help protect student athletes from concussions, declined comment Monday on the Seau familys objections.
