19 September 2018 11:47 AM Wanderers hold off City fightback to progress to FFA Cup semi-final

When spot kicks like that come off, the taker 70

4 September 2018 7:16 AM Former prop Tai Tuivasa lands main event slot on Adelaide UFC card

The 25-year-old's recent win over Arlovski was different in that it was the first of his professional career to stretch beyond a first round knockout, but he says he's not planning on going five rounds with Dos Santos. "I've lost fights in the past, in many disciplines. I was young and dumb, but now my training mental state is a lot different. "I knew I could 63
