PBA Finals: League will press charges against “Spider-Man” over Game 5 incident

The PBA will press charges against the man dressed as Spider-Man who disrupted Game 5 of the Philippine Cup Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday night. With a little over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of the crucial San Miguel-Magnolia  clash, a man dressed as Spider-Man stormed the court. In doing so, he hit five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo. The fan, who has not been identified yet, was taken by authorities to the nearest police precint together with two others. “Spidey” says that he just wanted to “spread love” and had no intention to hurt. Still, it was a pretty baffling and bordeline stupid act that will merit consequences. “Nasa presinto na yung tao. Pinapatanong ko sa legal namin kung anong klaseng kakasuhan,” PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial sid. “Kakasuhan namin yung tao,” he added. It was certainly an unprecented incident in the PBA but there’s cause for concern now over the security at the Araneta Coliseum. The man apparently was seated in the lower box section before he found himself in the middle of the court, colliding with the PBA’s most important player. “Kakausapin ko yung Araneta baka mamaya kung nandito pa sila or bukas na dagdagan yung security. Tatawagan ko rin si NCRPO General Eleazar kung pwede magdagdag ng pulis kasi ngayon lang nangyari to sa atin eh,” Marcial said. “Yun ang gagawin ko, mamayang gabi o hanggang bukas ng umaga,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: Stunt backfires as “Spidey” can’t even vote now

Spider-Man was so far from home Friday night. A random man dressed as the Marvel hero stormed the court of the Araneta Coliseum, halting the crucial Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals between San Miguel Beer and Magnolia. He ended up hitting five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo in one of the craziest incidents in league history. Spidey, who was been identified 31-year-old Paolo Felizarta by police, tried to justify the stunt as something that was done in the name of love. “Gusto ko lang po magmahalan tayo,” he said. “Ito lang po talaga pagkakataon para maayos tayo lahat,” he added. Spidey brought a ton of signages on court, which were vehicles to deliver his message pretty much. At the QCPD station 7, some of the signages included messages such as, “Love Philippines” and “Vote Wisely This May 13.” However, the stunt has backfired on Spidey and Felizarta will have no chance to practice what he was preaching. With PBA set to file charges of unjust vexation plus alarm and scandal, Felizarta will be detained at least a week as his case gets processed. He will miss the mid-term elections on Monday.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Ronda Rousey gets knocked out in 48 seconds in comeback fight

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ronda Rousey was stopped 48 seconds into her comeback fight Friday night, losing to bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 on Friday night. Rousey (12-2) returned from a 13-month absence and never managed to get her footing against Nunes (14-4), who rocked Rousey with her very first punches. Rousey staggered and stumbled backward while Nunes relentlessly pursued her and landed multiple shots. Referee Herb Dean stopped the bout with Rousey still on her feet, and Rousey briefly protested the stoppage before leaving the cage in her mother's arms. Cody Garbrandt also won the men's bantamweight title in the penultimate bout, battering champion Dominick Cruz to earn a surprising decision victory at T-Mobile Arena in the UFC's traditional end-of-the-year show in its hometown. Rousey couldn't compete in her first fight since losing her belt to Holly Holm 13 months ago in her first career defeat. Rousey became arguably the world's most famous female athlete and a combat sports trailblazer while she rocketed atop the UFC, but a year away from the sport apparently did little to heal the holes in her game. Nunes claimed her belt with a violent stoppage of Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July, completing an unlikely ascent for a Brazilian veteran whose skills have improved in recent years. Nunes lost three fights earlier in her career to opponents beaten easily by Rousey, but Nunes' work ethic and toughness propelled her into the biggest fight in the women's game against Rousey. Rousey hadn't fought since November 2015, when Holm stopped her with a head kick in one of the biggest upsets in MMA history. Rousey had never lost or been in much trouble while the former Olympic judo medalist rocketed to the top of her sport with a series of one-sided victories, but Holm's veteran striking made Rousey look amateurish before the dramatic finish. Rousey nearly vanished from public view after her loss, taking time away from the gym and attending to her acting career. After the bantamweight belt changed hands two more times in her absence, Rousey agreed to return for a shot at reclaiming her title. The UFC also was sold during her absence to WME-IMG, the entertainment conglomerate that also represents Rousey's career. But Rousey refused to promote this pay-per-view show, leaving Cruz and Nunes to do most of the work. While Rousey's media blackout will hurt her cut of the pay-per-view revenue, it didn't affect her guaranteed payday of $3 million, matching Conor McGregor for the biggest disclosed check in UFC history. Earlier, Garbrandt (11-0) remained unbeaten with a virtuoso performance to claim the belt held for the past 11 months by Cruz (22-2), who ended up with a gaping cut over his left eye. Garbrandt used precise striking, multiple takedowns and remarkable charisma to win over the judges, who all favored him by scores of 48-46, 48-46 and 48-47. Cruz hadn't lost an MMA fight since March 24, 2007, winning 13 straight bouts in a career marked by multiple comebacks from major injuries. The 25-year-old Garbrandt is a native of Uhrichsville, Ohio, who trains in the Sacramento-area gym of veteran fighter Urijah Faber. Cruz and Garbrandt taunted each other repeatedly during the promotion of their bout, and their genuine dislike translated into a frenzied five-round fight. Garbrandt lived up to his boundless promise with a resourceful effort against Cruz, who was favored to defend his belt. Instead, Garbrandt landed more shots and did more damage from the opening round. Both fighters landed significant strikes in the first two rounds, but Garbrandt turned the fight in his favor early in the third round during the exchange that opened the cut on Cruz's face. Garbrandt put on a performance in the fourth round, repeatedly knocking down Cruz when he wasn't dancing away from the champion. The unfriendly rivals congratulated each other after the bout, but Cruz didn't appear surprised when Garbrandt's hand was raised. After receiving his belt, Garbrandt wrapped it around the waist of Maddux Maple, a 10-year-old leukemia survivor from northern Ohio who has been his motivational talisman. Garbrandt's first title defense could be against T.J. Dillashaw, who dominated John Lineker in a unanimous-decision victory moments earlier at UFC 207, winning 30-26 on all three cards. Dillashaw (15-3) showed off precise striking and a superior ground game to trounce the Brazilian brawler. 'Come try me!' Garbrandt shouted at Dillashaw afterward. .....»»
