Martin Nguyen couldn't pass up fighting 'friend' Eduard Folayang

It didn't take long for Martin Nguyen to get another assignment after dethroning long-time featherweight champion Marat Gafurov in Kuala Lumpur last August.  The newly-crowned ONE Championship featherweight king got the call for a champion-versus-champion superfight, the first in the history of the promotion.  On November 10 in Manila, Nguyen challenges Eduard Folayang for the ONE Championship lightweight belt.  'Opportunities like this don’t come too often, and I had to jump on it.' the Australian said during the media faceoff in Manila, Tuesday afternoon.  Apart from challenging the champ, Nguyen will be going up against someone who he says he has nothing but respect for.  'I like Eduard, he’s my friend. We spent some time together in LA.' Nguyen said. The 28-year old also shared that after getting the call, he reached out to Folayang on Facebook and made an agreement with the champ.  'I messaged him on Facebook and we both came to an agreement where we put our friendship aside and make it strictly business. We’re martial artists at the end of the day, and we’re here to entertain you guys as a crowd. Let’s put on an entertaining fight, that’s what we came to agree.' Pre-fight animosity is commonplace in the world of combat sports, being that it's easier to get in the cage and try to take the head off of someone you don't particulary like.  For Nguyen, there will be no such ill-will towards Folayang, who he says he has a lot of respect for.  'We respect each other as martial artists, there’s no trash talk, there’s no pushing or shoving, it’s a pure friendship, pure, real mixed martial arts adventure we’re experiencing together.' .....»»

Dolphins assistant resigns, apologizes after video surfaces

em>By Steve Wine, Associated Press /em> DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says offensive line coach Chris Foerster seemed so focused on the team that he would often be at work by 4 a.m. Then a video surfaced that rocked Foerster's reputation and cost him his job. The 55-year-old assistant coach resigned Monday, apologized and said he was seeking medical help after a video on social media appeared to show him snorting three lines of white powder at a desk. Hours after the video was posted on Facebook and Twitter, Foerster announced his departure in a statement released by the team. 'I am resigning from my position with the Miami Dolphins and accept full responsibility for my actions,' he said. 'I want to apologize to the organization, and my sole focus is on getting the help that I need, with the support of my family and medical professionals.' It's unclear when or where the 56-second video was made, or how it became public. Foerster has been an NFL assistant since 1992 and joined Gase's staff in Miami last year. 'We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior,' the team said in a statement that accompanied Foerster's resignation announcement. 'After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately. Although Chris is no longer with the organization, we will work with him to get the help he needs during this time.' Gase said he learned of the video late Sunday, soon after the Dolphins' 16-10 victory over Tennessee. 'I don't think I can say what my reaction was,' Gase said. The coach said he phoned Foerster, who apologized. Gase declined to say whether Foerster volunteered to resign or was urged to quit. 'He's disappointed, he's upset, he's mad at himself,' Gase said. 'It's not fun, especially when you're close to somebody. But you've got to take the next step and move on.' The NFL said it was reviewing the matter. Gase said he has known Foerster since 2008, when both were assistants with the San Francisco 49ers. Foerster joined the Dolphins shortly after Gase became head coach last year. 'Since I've been around him, he has always been a guy who just put his head down and worked,' Gase said. 'He was here at 4 in the morning and worked as hard as he could for us.' Rookie Eric Smith was the only offensive lineman to speak to the media Monday. 'I have nothing negative to say about coach Foerster,' Smith said. 'It's an unfortunate situation. I hate to see it happening to him. I saw no signs of it happening. I'm still shocked by it.' Team captain Michael Thomas said he had not seen the video but expressed sympathy for Foerster. 'It's crazy,' Thomas said. 'We're praying for him.' The video appears to show Foerster and the powder on the desk. The man is holding a rolled-up $20 bill in his right hand and appears to adjust the camera with his left hand. 'Hey babe, miss you, thinking about you,' he says. 'How about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go?' He then snorts the substance into his nose though the $20 bill and notes 'those big grains falling' as residue lands on the desk. 'What do you think, I'm crazy?' Foerster asks after snorting the second line. 'Ah, no, babe. 'It's going to be a while before we can do this again ... ' he says, 'But I think about you when I do it. I think about how much I miss you, how high we got together, how much fun it was. So much fun.' Before snorting the final line he says, 'Last little bit before I go to my meeting.' Foerster's offensive line has played poorly this season, and the Dolphins (2-2) rank last in the league in points and yards per game. They planned an announcement later regarding his successor. 'Any time you lose a really good coach, it's not ideal,' Gase said. 'But we'll rally. We'll find a way.' Quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending knee injury in training camp, Miami's opener was postponed because of Hurricane Irma, and linebacker Lawrence Timmons briefly went AWOL. Foerster's departure becomes the latest chapter in a turbulent season. 'That's the NFL, man,' Gase said. 'It's a league of distractions. You move on.' .....»»
