There s food Martinez will not eat for a while after nose bleed in the Olympics

Turns out there was a specific reason for Michael Martinez's episode of nose bleeding in his stint at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. After his routine in PyeongChang, Martinez suffered from severe nose bleeding. It wasn't because he got injured from his routine, it was just the after effects of all the stress and weight cuts he had to do prior to the competition. "I actually had a very bad nose bleed, I went to the doctors and they told me 'you know what it's because of the switch of the diet and the stress that you put it,'" Martinez said. "It was very difficult," the two-time Olympian added. Martinez was a late addition to the Winter Olympics being given a wildcard berth after Sweden's representative withdrew in January. The 21-year-old figure skater also ventured into bodybuilding following his first Olympic stint in Sochi four years ago and while that helped him with his career in some ways, it also forced him to cut his weight in order to reach optimum condition for South Korea. During the most stressful time of his weight cut, Martinez said he didn't really eat breakfast and only had what was basically a combination of salmon, some meats, and some vegetables for lunch and dinner. Oh and a little bit of bread too. Obviously, that took its toll on his body. "Everyday. At the end of the competition I was just like 'yeah I can't eat this,'" he said. But still, bodybuilding helped Martinez with his performances. All that muscle he packed was beneficial in him being stronger for his projections. However, the focus now for the Fil-Japanese skater is to take a break first. Returning to the country this week, representing a tropical country like the Philippines in the Winter Olympics is enough for Martinez. "Competing at that level of the Winter Olympics, in the company of world-class figure skating talents, and performing in front of the world, is already a reward," he said. "I am honored to have represented the country in that tournament and hope I have become an inspiration to the next generation of ice athletes," Martinez added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Major grudge match for Garbrandt, Dillashaw tops fight card

By Greg Beacham, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw have one of the UFC's most compelling feuds of recent years. This beef is rooted in betrayal and tribalism, and it led to the demolition of a once-cordial relationship between training partners. The feud persisted even after Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt and took his bantamweight title belt last year, following months of verbal sparring and pre-fight scuffling. Their rematch at Staples Center on Saturday night is the main event of UFC 227. It's also the chance for a particularly personal victory for both men, who declined to shake hands at their ceremonial faceoff Thursday in downtown Los Angeles. "I prefer to be respectful," Dillashaw said Thursday. "I prefer to be a martial artist, so I like a respect level, but I don't mind the drama, either. I'm going to use it to my advantage." Garbrandt (11-1) and Dillashaw (15-3) actually have plenty in common. They're both well-conditioned, gifted strikers who became elite competitors at Team Alpha Male, Urijah Faber's famed gym in Sacramento. They've also both become first-time fathers in the nine months since their last bout. But they simply haven't gotten along ever since Dillashaw won the bantamweight title and also left Alpha Male in 2014. To make an epic story short, Dillashaw says he was thrown out because he wouldn't break ties with coach Duane Ludwig, who had just split acrimoniously from Faber. Several Alpha Male fighters, including Garbrandt, say Dillashaw turned his back on them. "Let him say what he wants, but that motivates me," Garbrandt said. "If you say you're going to ruin my career and basically take food out of my child's mouth, that's fine. I didn't need any more motivation with my new son, and while I'm coming off my first loss, I've been more motivated than I ever have out of any win." Any viewer of the pay-per-view show can't miss the clear contrast between Garbrandt, the rural Ohio product with prominent neck tattoos, and Dillashaw, the clean-cut college graduate with a California surfer look. But the rematch primarily is a collision of two fighters with legitimate reason to think they're the best in the 135-pound division. Garbrandt rocketed to the top of the class, winning the belt less than two years after entering the UFC. He lost his title in equally stunning fashion last November to Dillashaw, who reclaimed the strap he had lost to Dominick Cruz nearly two years earlier. During his ascent, Garbrandt appeared to be the archetype of the most compelling lighter-weight fighters. He was slick, athletic, stylistically well-rounded and powerful enough to generate knockouts — and he looked the part of a mixed martial arts star, right down to those tattoos that spread down his resplendently multicolored arms. Garbrandt's neck is covered by large wings flanking a diamond, with the words "SELF MADE" atop his sternum. He seemed ticketed for superstardom — until Dillashaw, the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler whose only losses in the last six years were on debatable split decisions, wrecked the narrative with his fists. Immediately after their bout at Madison Square Garden, Garbrandt claims he tried to quash their grudge, but Dillashaw rejected him. Dillashaw says he isn't to blame for not wanting Garbrandt around him. "You've got me by the throat before, and that pushed me overboard," Dillashaw said, recalling a past scuffle between the two. "What's changed now? Just because I slapped you upside your face, what's different? Why have you got to be fake?" While Garbrandt doesn't accept the blame for this state of affairs, he insists he has grown and changed since his wife, Danny, gave birth in March to their first child, a son named Kai. But Garbrandt also angrily declined to apologize this week for a series of racially insensitive tweets from his early 20s. "I've never felt entitled to anything in my life," Garbrandt said. "I feel like everything happens for a reason. I've been given second chances my whole entire life. ... T.J. is a tough adversary. He's skilled. He's a good competitor. He doesn't like to lose either. That's what's great about this rivalry.".....»»
