Jakob Glesnes has already scored mind-blowing goals for the Union, but the one he scored on Saturday could well surpass them all.

In the 123rd minute of the Union first round playoff game against the New York Red Bulls – yes, it’s the third minute of stoppage time after 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of overtime – Glesnes crushed in a 25-yard blast to give Philadelphia a 1-0 victory.

The Union will host the winner of Tuesday’s Nashville-Orlando game (8 p.m., FS1 and Fox Deportes) in the second round on November 28 at 3 p.m. or 5:30 p.m.

Here are some observations on the game.

An hour before kick-off, the Union announced that Jamiro Monteiro and Olivier Mbaizo had been sidelined due to Major League Soccer’s health and safety protocols.

The team released a brief statement on the matter that did not detail exactly what happened to the two players, but offered various reasons that could rule out a player beyond testing positive for COVID-19. They include pending or inconclusive test results, quarantines due to “high-risk behavior” or “being in high-risk close contact” or “another disease unrelated to COVID-19. “.

Monteiro and Mbaizo were recently with their national teams, Cape Verde and Cameroon respectively, for the penultimate round of the African World Cup qualifiers. Cape Verde hosted the Central African Republic and visited Nigeria, while Cameroon faced Malawi in Johannesburg, South Africa, and hosted Côte d’Ivoire.

Both players played in their teams’ two games, Saturday and Tuesday, then returned to the Philadelphia area. Monteiro returned to town on Wednesday and Mbaizo returned on Thursday.

Against the Red Bulls, rookie phenomenon Paxten Aaronson started in place of Monteiro in attacking midfield, and veteran substitute Alvas Powell started in place of Mbaizo at right-back.

If this was the first Union game you’ve been watching in a while, I hope someone warned you in advance that clashes with the Red Bulls are rarely pretty. Both teams use the same high-pressure game manuals and they tend to produce mind-blowing football instead of looking good.

They also knew they came into the day with a 0-13-10 combined this season by giving up the first goal. It was no surprise that they made it a priority not to start over this time.

The second half was much more open than the first, especially once Sergio Santos replaced Aaronson in the 61st minute. But neither team has scored more than one goal against the other in their three regular season games this year. So it was also not surprising to see this trend continue in the playoffs.

Aaronson was quiet most of the day on offense, with just 26 touches and seven assists completed in 11 attempts. But he came back to life just before the hour mark, with a quick run down the left wing in the 56th minute and a shot from the top of the 18-yard box on the Union’s next foray. .

Aaronson left in the 61st for Sergio Santos, which had an immediate impact – but almost did it the wrong way. In the 63rd, an attempt to recycle a ball by New Yorker Andrés Reyes hit Santos’ right elbow as he attempted to get him away from the ball. The Red Bulls players screamed for a penalty, but referee Fotis Bazakos didn’t give it and the video replay booth agreed.

Santos’ best regulating moment was in the 82nd, when he danced to avoid getting stuck on the baseline and set up a wide open Kacper Przybylko with the net open. But Przybylko took a wrong step and shot over the crossbar. And in the 107th, Santos was pushed by Cory Burke (who had replaced Przybylko in the 86th) with a superb cross, but he shot straight at Red Bulls goalkeeper Carlos Miguel Coronel – a former Union replacement.

Burke missed another big chance in the 116th when he shot point blank and was injured in a tackle from Gutman.

But Glesnes redeemed everything with his superb winner in the last minute.

Class40 in the Transat Jacques Vabre Day 12 – Compression in Cape Verde

by Denis van den Brink Nov 18, 7:23 AM PST
November 18, 2021

Since last night, the six “historic” leaders of the Transat Jacques Vabre made in Class40 have come up against the vast area of ​​weak winds distributed around the archipelago of Cape Verde, and on the island of Sal, which the competitors of the 12.19 m long class must set off to starboard before starting to cross the Atlantic towards Martinique.

The result is a spectacular change in the standings, with a change of leader in favor of the Belgian-French duo Gerkens-Hantzperg of the Max 40 Volvo. The six protagonists who have paved the way in Cape Verde so far, with whom Crédit Mutuel (Lipinski – Pulvé) and the astonishing British duo of Tquila, Brian Thompson and Alister Richardson, have been linked since dawn, benefit always with a slight gap to the south, which will favor their approach to the archipelago. However, it is now the group elegantly named “2nd Division” by Cédric Chateau (Seafrigo – Sogestran) that must be sought to find real changes in the classification, because the positions are calculated in relation to the direct route, which starts due west. . This morning, 4th place is proudly held by Axel Tréhin and Frédéric Denis (Ocean Rescue Project) and 5th place by the wonderful daughters of La Boulangère Bio, Amélie Grassi and Marie Riou. This upheaval in the classification should not erase the reality of the placements on the water, with a clear advantage for the boats furthest to the south. On the other hand, the compression of the head of the fleet is very real, and 17 boats, including Legallais de Pierre-Cazenave-Péré and Kevin Bloch, are less than 100 miles from each other.

Retirement

While the battle becomes more and more indecisive on this 11th day of racing, while the halfway mark has just been crossed, the Class40 fleet mourns its first retirement, that of HBF-Reforest’Action by Kito De Pavant and Gwen Gbick. Their bowsprit did not resist the long wake session downwind in the strongest part of the trade winds. The two men are now heading north towards Gibraltar and the Mediterranean. We also note the stopover this morning in La Palma in the Canaries of Sabrosa40 Lenzi – Lanternes de Paris to the duo Tanguy Duchatelet – Fabrice Renouard. A temporary technical stop.

Which route to the trade winds?
The problem of the day, and of size, is how to negotiate this compulsory passage to Cape Verde. You have two options: a crossing as close as possible to the island of Sal for the most direct route possible. Or look for an exit to the South, in a vast reversal movement to avoid site effects, by staying away from the calm which extends beyond the archipelago and by letting yourself be drawn into a north-facing trade wind. Is that we can imagine being reconstituted at the latitude of Guinea-Bissau.

Rationing!

Another topic of current events of the Class40, the possible rationing of food and diesel. Many crews are worried this morning about the relative slowness of the race since the start of Le Havre. Several optimists had predicted a 19-day Transat. At the start of the 12th day of racing, and while the real crossing of the Atlantic has not yet started, with the prospect of a more lazy trade wind than ever, it is the question of refueling that arises. here and there. Food, but also the diesel needed when the hydrogenerator and solar panels are insufficient to recharge the batteries on board, could run out. From then on, the first food restrictions and rationing were revealed by some crews:

Creation of the Lamotte module: Luke Berry declared: “As for the rations: like all competitors, we are starting to think that we will be limited in food. So on my side, I took the lead by skipping meals to prepare for days 21-21. -23? (We only have 20 days of food). Achilles for his part has a different approach. He eats everything now and will see at the end. He wants to be dry and salient for his beach body ready on arrival (lol)! ”

Edenred: Emmanuel Le Roch said: “This deckchair has a particular slow flavor! Each passing day takes us further away from the finish line. The countdown is no longer done … we add days … already from Portugal after having made the water, gas and oil counts, we tighten our belts. But there, it is a dietetic cure! ”

Redman: Antoine Carpentier said: “We started rationing, we only ate two meals today, it’s calm, we are really hungry! Right now we’re kidding, but in ten days I’m not sure that’s the case … we’ve only planned 19 days of food and for those who know me, they know it’s a big one. problem and the worst part is that Pablo shares with me the passion to eat well. The water problem is not a problem, we had planned two days more than the food, who knows why? The last problem is the energy on board! Even though we have solar panels, we have to do one or two motor loads per day! We started to cut as much as possible on board devices so as not to consume too much, I even cut the power station which allows us to have the wind information, the driver of the car, the on-board computer for two hours. this afternoon … we’re pointing a lot. ”

Show of the day

Gain of five places this morning for Freedom. Thibaud Lefevere and Thomas Bulck are in 32nd position after having covered 300 miles over the past 24 hours, averaging over 12 knots. A performance comparable to that of the sisters Julia and Jeanne Courtois (Saint James – Biscuiterie de l’Abbaye) who jumped three places in the general classification. We also note Serenis Consulting (Galfione – Péron) in 23rd place.

Quotes of the day

Everial: Stan Thuret
“50 miles from the Sahara. Right in front of Dhakla. And there comes out of nowhere a boat. Rather, a boat. A very frail canoe of 7m perhaps. With an engine. 3 African fishermen on board. They come as close as possible to my wind. The 147 is surfing at 15 knots in 3m waves. The two boats approach respectfully. I wake up Mathieu from his nap. We’re on the Cotten Oilskin Bridge. And they also have the same oilskins. The 3 shaken fishermen then raise their arms in a sign of greeting and encouragement. We give them back that momentum all the more. We have a smile on our face and so do they.

Avanade: Maxime Cauwe
“Things are going well aboard Avanade and even more so since Jules managed to restart the emergency autopilot. We can finally spend more time on the settings, go on more structured watches where we do navigation, adjustment etc … rather than being riveted to your helmsman’s seat Another complicated day of knitting in light airs before putting the turn signal on the right and off you go for the long trip in Martinique! ”

Exploring technology for good – Enguerrand Granoux
“We decided to fight. We therefore alternated 1 hour at the bar, 1 hour sleeping or at least trying, always dressed if ever we had to go quickly and help the one outside! The night was sporty! 20/25 knots at 130 wind, the boat set off with impressive acceleration, all with the full moon! Incredible show! The game consisted of comparing the speed of the boat on the pos report every hour (position and speed of the fleet every hour)! Victor mastered his subject perfectly with a good average speed of 13.5 knots over an hour in the middle of the night! Not easy but we managed to hold out until sunrise! At this moment the wind continues to rise, we say to ourselves that it is time to go under the small Spinnakers. We barely have time to finish our maneuver and take shelter when the wind drops, neither one nor two, we still change sail for a bigger spinnaker! We finally breathe and we take off our oilskins to breathe a little! Fault ! We see the display go from 15 knots to 25/30 knots in 2 minutes! When it’s going to pass, we take the helm and take advantage, the boat overspeed on each wave it’s super impressive, a first point at 20 knots a second in 21.8 knots, a new record validated by Enguerrand! We wonder if the boat will hold up, if the bowsprit will not explode! But everything is holding up well, we really have confidence in the boat! ”

Milaï: Anna Beaugé
“Strange weather on the sea planet!” As the tropical depression approaches, the observed wind has nothing to do with either forecast, so we are moving at a turtle pace, each length covered being a good gain to be made. The fleet is we settled down a bit, there is the accordion effect of the different weather systems, we saw the leading peloton stop for an hour or two, and we always look in the mirror, those who shoot behind . have reappeared: they are small, almost all gray and some spotted. The weather is very mild, gray, quite humid, during the day; the light is very whitish, the sky is complex, a few scattered rains … ”

Seafrico – Sogestran: Château Cédric
“After 24 hours of magic, full steam ahead towards the island of Sal with averages above the average of our comrades, Seafrigo-Sogestran is back in the” league 2 “fray. The atmosphere on board was up to date. concentration today to avoid leaving. course, which could lead to damage. We really pulled on the boat and it held up well to the infernal rhythm that we imposed on it. It is therefore a little burnt that we join our comrades of the 2nd group (the group of leaders being a little detached) We will have to remain lucid because the rest of the scenario will play with our nerves on very open water tactically.The result of the races in 24/36 hours.

Calliste Antoine: Croatia full of life
“Lighter day for the wind and the speed, we slept a lot. Inceeritud of the night, without motor for energy and with a speed too low for the generator it will be complicated (7.5 knots of speed to have juice . We took stock of food today, it’s limited for the routing to 23 days of racing, otherwise we caught up with the fleet in front but the fleet behind us also came back, it smacks of the second start in Cape Verde.

Olivier Magré: E.Leclerc – Ville-La-Grand
“48 hours very active with this good wind, so we made the most of it! (409nm over 24 hours! That’s a lot of miles! Now we’re back to an old enemy, calm! It’s getting pretty calm, especially during the night tomorrow until Friday morning. I still dare to hope that the files will improve but there is often little room for that unfortunately. ”

Bad weather on the way to the Doldrums for the IMOCA fleet on the Transat Jacques Vabre

by Ed Gorman / IMOCA Nov 16 09:51 PM UTC
November 16, 2021

After nine days of the 15th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre, the leading boats of the IMOCA Class are heading west under the Cape Verde Islands with an air of duckweed now familiar to this transatlantic marathon.

The leaders are Thomas Rettant and Morgan Lagravière on LinkedOut who are fighting with Charlie Dalin and Paul Meilhat on APIVIA and Jérémie Beyou and Christopher Pratt on Charal at the head of the fleet.

With a little over 3,300 miles to go until the finish at Fort de France in Martinique, Rettant and Lagravière are 24 miles ahead of APIVIA in second position and Charal two miles further in third position.

There is then nearly 60 miles gap with Initiatives-Cœur in fourth position with 11th Hour Racing Team-Malama and ARKEA PAPREC less than four miles behind in fifth and sixth positions respectively. The late 20-person fleet, EBAC (Antoine Cornic and Jean-Charles Luro), is about 760 miles north of LinkedOut.

The leading crews are sailing downwind in light conditions under sunny skies but with a far from simple weather picture. After staying far to the east along the Mauritanian and Senegalese coasts, to benefit from the best wind conditions, they must now head west to line up for their crossing of the Doldrums.

But the infamous Doldrums promises to be threatening as it expands and contracts to the south, with the possibility that the fleet will compress in the coming days, allowing more indented boats, led by Prysmian Group (Giancarlo Pedote et Martin Le Pape) – 273 miles behind the leader – to catch up.

On 11th Hour Racing Team-Malama, co-skipper Charlie Enright relishes the tight regattas from boat to boat in the East Atlantic and has a decidedly positive view of the Doldrums as the squall and calm zone draws closer. in addition. “We’re pretty hungry and competitive people and the mantra has been just to get there – get there, get there… and now is keep it close, keep it close, keep it close,” he said. says, “and the Doldrums are a whole world of opportunity,” he added.

In front of them, Lagravière on LinkedOut says that this Transat Jacques Vabre looks more like a huge coastal Grand Prix than a transoceanic marathon. “It looks more like a Solitaire du Figaro than a transatlantic race as we have a close battle with APIVIA and Charal which is particularly intense,” he said.

“We’ve been running almost in sight for a few days. It generates intensity both in the way we lead the boat and in the way we refine our strategy … it also has an impact on the pace on board because the level of play is much higher. We give everything we can at all times.

Enright says their duel with Sébastien Simon and Yann Elies on ARKEA PAPREC was a lot of fun. “Yeah, yeah, those guys,” he said on a satellite call from the ship, “we’ve seen a lot of it in the last three or four days and every time we go back (close of them), there is a good VHF Joke … it was a push-pull between us. ”

This race allowed Enright and Bidégorry to put the brand new Malama to the test. The American co-skipper says he has managed to cope with various things that break or don’t work, but the boat is now stable and running well, while his co-skippers are learning speed lessons all the time.

“We really entered the race without expectations and had a good exit from the English Channel and Ouessant,” said Enright. “We’re still learning the boat, the handling of the sails, the ergonomics, all that stuff – kind of we learn it on the fly. With performance we’re just scratching the surface, so every new one condition is a new time to truly experience for us more than anything else. ”

Back on LinkedOut, which turns out to be a powerful and competitive package despite smaller foils than Apivia, Lagravière summed up the weather position as “unconventional”, while the Doldrums are looming, then the trip to at the mark of the turn to Fernando de Noronha. “It’s not easy and it has been from the start,” he said. “We often have good surprises, often a little more windy than in the lines. We get to get the most out of the boat, so it’s fun. It is the same for everyone and the randomness remains controllable.

The Reunionese sailor has not disclosed anything about the Doldrums and the place where they plan to cross it. “The approach is different from other years,” he summed up. “We’ll really know the situation once we get through it. These are things that change until the last minute.”

Enright thinks about what happened during the last Transat Jacques Vabre in 2019 when Beyou and Pratt sur Charal entered the Doldrums with a big lead and then came to a stop, allowing the pursuers to bypass them. “We saw Charal come in with a 200 mile lead and parked and it became pretty clear to everyone – don’t go! – anywhere but there!” He said in laughing.

On Initiatives-Cœur, Briton Sam Davies and Frenchman Nico Lunven continue to impress in their old red and white IMOCA. They had to deal with not only the race but also a sartorial issue, as Davies revealed in his last message on board. Turns out Lunven forgot to pack T-shirts for the Tropics.

” Sat ? he said, ”Davies reports,“ I forgot my t-shirt. For once I think, I took enough t-shirts and came up with a solution: I’m going to share them. Nico will be wearing size 10 women’s clothes (or 12 if he’s lucky) for the next eleven days. And he’s going to do the laundry. ”

Nigeria vs Cape Verde Live Online: Scores, Stats & Updates, 2022 WC Qualifiers

The 2022 CAF World Cup qualifiers continue Tuesday with Nigeriameeting with Green cap headlining. Nigeria enter the game sitting proudly at the head of group C with 12 points and having lost points only once – the Super Eagles suffered a shock 0-1 loss to the Central African Republic in the first official meeting between the two nations last month.

Gernot Rohr’s troops return to the scene of this defeat, the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos to face a Green cap team that looked equally impressive in the qualifying rounds. The Blue Sharks got off to a rough start in the second round, being held to a 1-1 draw by Central African Republic then losing their next match, against Nigeria 1-2 with Kenny Rocha Santos turning the ball into his own late net. But since then they’ve been on a winning streak, beating Liberia at home and away and come back from a goal down beat RCA on weekends.

Green cap enter the game second in the standings with 10 points and face the only team they suffered a loss against as they try to advance.

A win on either side would take them to the third round. A draw would be enough for Nigeria but not for Green cap so there will be a lot at stake Lagos in what promises to be a tense match. It will also be an important step for Gernot Rohr who will supervise his 54th game in charge, surpassing the record he shares with the former Nigeria coach, Shaibu Amodu.

In addition to the September meeting in Mindelo, Nigeria and Green cap have crossed paths only once before – in a friendly in January 2013 that didn’t score any goals.

  • Advanced drone technology first used in Cape Verde to successfully deter and prevent poaching of endangered sea turtles.
  • Drones capture vital information about turtle movements and help protect turtles and their nests
  • Opportunity to help protect wildlife by adopting a baby Cape Verde turtle

Through the TUI Turtle Aid program, the NGO Project Biodiversity and the TUI Care Foundation have worked together for the past six years to support the conservation of marine turtles in Cape Verde, with protection, education and awareness initiatives. for tourists and local communities on the island of Sal. Today, the partnership takes up a new challenge. Advanced drone technology will be used to protect nesting loggerhead turtles from the threat of poaching on some of the island’s most remote beaches.

The lack of tourism during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the beaches to remain calm. This has increased poaching on the island. Despite vigilant night patrols by Biodiversity Project teams, as well as comprehensive legislation banning the killing, capture or disturbance of sea turtles throughout Cape Verde, illegal poaching remains a significant threat to an already endangered species. Each year, it is estimated that 6 to 13% of nesting females are killed by poachers. Much of this poaching occurs on remote beaches which are difficult to reach with in-person patrols, or where patrols can only take place sporadically.

In these areas, drones can make all the difference. Drone patrols supported by the TUI Turtle Aid program have recently started in the small but critical nesting area of ​​Murdeira Bay Nature Reserve. They have also spread to other remote areas and the Biodiversity Project has regularly recorded cases of poaching. Almost immediately, the team began to see results. In cooperation with local authorities, the initiative has already been able to stop a number of poaching attempts in recent months.

In addition to direct protection, drone patrols also allowed the team to monitor other growing threats, such as predation of sea turtle nests by stray dogs. With these images and information, along with help from local authorities, the team will have valuable tools to help alleviate these issues on the island.

As the nesting season slowly draws to a close and tourism picks up again, Project Biodiversity is delighted to welcome guests and visitors back to its main hatchery behind the RIU Funana Hotel, where they can take the opportunity to see baby loggerhead turtles every afternoon. With tourism in Sal picking up momentum, the team is excited to share more about their turtle protection work – this year with the addition of an information booth. Customers can receive information about the initiative and learn more about the wildlife of Sal and the TUI Turtle Aid program which supports the conservation of marine turtles in Sal and around the world.

To support the protection of turtles, the TUI Turtle Aid adoption program offers the possibility of adopting a turtle in Cape Verde. This includes choosing a name for the baby turtle and a birthday (hatch date). As soon as the baby turtle hatches, the adopter receives an adoption certificate from Project Biodiversity and a photo of the newly hatched baby turtle by email.

VOLVO OCEAN RACE

Peter Burling and Blair Tuke competed in the last Ocean Race, stepping onto the podium in their debut.

Auckland has been chosen as the stopover for the next round the world sailing race.

The development comes as Ocean Race organizers confirm a radical new course for the race which has been delayed for a year.

It is a second blow for Auckland with the loss of the organization of the defense of the next America’s Cup which will be held with Team New Zealand in search of foreign alternatives which will see the important yachting infrastructure of the downtown of the city remain inactive.

Only 25 minutes separated the first five boats as the Volvo Ocean Race fleet completed 21 days at sea from Hong Kong.

The controversial Ocean Race movement also sees Shenzhen in China scrapped as a new “super stop” from Cape Town in South Africa to Itajai in Brazil will mean 12,750 nautical miles nonstop transport across the Southern Ocean.

According to initial plans for the race, which should have started last month, Auckland was to continue its strong presence in this glamorous race, hosting a stopover for the 12th time in the Odyssey’s 15 editions. Officials even called Auckland the breed’s “spiritual home”.

The postponement of the start to December 2022 in Alicante, Spain was blamed on the global Covid pandemic and race organizers used the same reason to abandon Auckland and Shenzen.

“The continued and unpredictable effects of Covid have made it impossible, at this time, to make the planning necessary to ensure successful stopovers in China and New Zealand,” said Johan Salen, Managing Director of The Ocean Race.

New Zealand sailor Bianca Cook is campaigning around the world.

This is a big blow to Bianca Cook’s Ocean Racing New Zealand campaign. They bought and refitted a VO65 class boat to be the country’s first participation in the famous race since Team New Zealand’s Camper finished second in the 2011-12 edition.

Having Auckland as a stopover was a real boost for its sponsors and its presence in the race. Organizers say they will look for ways to keep New Zealand and Chinese interests strong.

“China and New Zealand remain important to the present and future of The Ocean Race, and we plan to return to both countries,” said race president Richard Brisius.

“We will work diligently with both to explore ways for them to have a meaningful presence in this edition as well.

“China, of course, has a strong history of hosting stopovers since 2008-09 and was the winner of the last edition of the race, with the Dongfeng racing team.

“And we see Auckland as a spiritual home for this event, with legends like Sir Peter Blake, Grant Dalton, Ross Field and Mike Sanderson, to name a few of so many amazing Kiwis who have taken on this challenge. . Their heritage is woven into the fabric of The Ocean Race. “

The new route will see the fleet sprint from Alicante to Cabo Verde, visiting this African island nation for the very first time, before descending to Cape Town.

After transport from the Southern Ocean to Brazil, the next stop will be in Newport, Rhode Island, United States, before crossing the Atlantic to northern European stopovers in Aarhus, Denmark and The Hague in Netherlands, before the grand final in the Mediterranean in Genoa. , Italy.

Stopover dates will be announced as soon as the logistics of the itinerary are fully confirmed.

The next race will offer for the first time a foiling division of IMOCA class sailboats as well as the conventional monohulls that Cook will compete in.

CES 65 Results – De Castro vs Williams https://turismo-stp.org/ces-65-results-de-castro-vs-williams/ https://turismo-stp.org/ces-65-results-de-castro-vs-williams/#respond Sun, 07 Nov 2021 21:15:57 +0000 https://turismo-stp.org/ces-65-results-de-castro-vs-williams/ CES returns to its home state of Rhode Island for the first time in over a year to host CES 65 in Providence.

CES returns to its home state of Rhode Island for the first time in over a year to host CES 65 in Providence. MMA Sucka has you covered for the entire CES 65 card here.

In the main event, the UFC veteran, Yorgan De Castro (6-3), takes the veteran holder of MMA, Danyelle williams (8-6-1). De Castro from Cape Verde resides in Massachusetts and trained at the Regiment Training Center in Fall River. The 33-year-old will make his first non-UFC appearance in more than two years at CES 65. That being said, he is no stranger to the CES cage as he will make his fourth step for promotion tonight. . De Castro is known for his powerful strikes and can extinguish the lights of many people with one blow. In his six professional victories, he has finished five by knockout, including a first round knockout Justin tafa at UFC 243. De Castro is looking to end a three-fight slippage and return to the winning column for the first time in more than two years at CES 65.

Danyelle Williams appears to be spoiling De Castro’s return. Williams is making his return to the cage for the first time since 2017. Although he briefly moved away from MMA, he was involved in several boxing bouts. The Minnesota native trains at MX Gym Life and Doc’s Gym. In his professional career, 10 of his 14 fights went without the need for judges. At 39, his goal is to upset the UFC vet in his home region.

Co-headliners of the card are PFL and WSOF veterans Andre Harrison (21-2-1) and Brazilian finisher Chalet Mauro (14-7), who face off in a featherweight fight. Harrison of Sanford MMA is realistically a win far from receiving the appeal of a large organization. After struggling to find a fight, he finally returns to the cage for the first time in two years. The 33-year-old is making his promotional debut tonight and looking to make the most of it. Harrison has had a professional career so far, winning the WSOF, Titan FC and Ring of Combat Featherweight Straps. He shared the cage with Lance Palmer, Movlid Khaybulaev, and Kurt holobaugh.

The only man standing in the way of Harrison’s call-up to a major organization is Mauro Chalet. Chalet is also taking his first walk to the CES cage tonight. It will be the Brazilians’ first fight in over a year and a half as they look to bounce back from a loss to the UFC featherweight Damon jackson. That being said, he’s won three of his last four games. Besides Jackson, Chaulet also knocked down with Renato Moicano and Edimilson Souza. It will be a high level fight, so don’t miss it.

Some other notable names on the card are CES ve Ashiek Ajim (4-1) and Bellator veterans Nathan Ghareeb (4-1) and Jean Douma (5-2).
