    As Dana White goes through the final motions leading up to UFC 173 this Saturday, his company couldnt be doing much better. Harrison Barnes Jersey . "Were in 175 countries, 23 different languages and over a billion homes worldwide in some form of television," he said Tuesday on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor and Dave Hodge on TSN Radio 1050. "We are the largest pay-per view provider on the planet."What makes White and his organization special is that they are always reaching farther and aiming higher. In 2014, the UFC has already held events in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, China, U.K., Abu Dhabi and Singapore. By the end of the year, Japan, Sweden, Turkey, Germany and New Zealand will be added to that list. Additionally, White has begun his descent south into Latin America, where the UFC will host its first-ever event in Mexico – a heavyweight title bout between champion Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum in November. The show – UFC 180 – will also feature the finale bouts of "The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America", the regions first edition of the reality show.As mentioned, White has big plans and high hopes for expansion. "You guys know how big (UFC) is in Canada, you know how big it is in the U.S. Well in Brazil, The Ultimate Fighter reality show gets 12 million viewers a week. And when we do a live fight on TV, 65 million people watch down in Brazil, its insane," he said. "We believe that Mexico and Latin America will rival that."However, there are still growing pains for White and his 20-year-old organization. Many would say the UFC is still in its infancy, despite the resounding success. And in a sport where violence is front and centre 100 per cent of the time, White says there is an important "education process" that has to take place in order to attract more fans. "Theres still a lot of people who havent been reached. Theres still a lot of people that are uneducated about the sport," White said. "Every day when we get up and we continue to move into other countries and continue to do business here in the U.S. and Canada, which are huge markets for mixed martial arts, theres still that education process."The fight game can be trivial at times. Where one night a pair of 200-pound men could stand toe-to-toe, bloody, crashing hooks and jabs into each others jaws until one collapses to the floor unconscious, another night could see a tactical matchup featuring two jiu-jitsu practitioners, twisting inside and out on the mat searching for an advantageous position while fighting off the grasp of their opponent. Fights can be night and day, overtly vicious or deceptively calm. With this come frequent misconceptions about the dangers of a combat sport. Its nothing White hasnt had to address before. "To a person whos uneducated about the sport or about the UFC they would probably believe people have died competing in the UFC," he said. "In the 20-year history of the UFC there has never been a death or serious injury. In 20 years, cheerleading cant say that."It is unlikely the UFC and mixed martial arts will ever be universally accepted. But that just means White will never be out of work. "Every day were in meetings pushing the company forward," he said. "Im a pretty simple guy. I love the sport, I love the UFC, I love fights." Luka Doncic Jersey .

Kostas Antetokounmpo Jersey . -- The defending Canadian womens curling champions squandered an opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the standings Tuesday at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.​​​​​​​Ander Herrera has impressed in Manchester Uniteds midfield and he looks set to start against Liverpool on Monday Night Football. The Spaniard already looks like Jose Mourinhos best partner for Paul Pogba in the middle, writes Nick Wright. Herrera has had to be patient at United. It is more than two years since he first set foot in Carrington, but the former Athletic Bilbao midfielder has featured sporadically for the most part, struggling to nail down a place in the team and frequently finding himself on the fringes.Herrera started just 36 out of 76 Premier League games in his first two seasons at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal, and history seemed to be repeating itself when he was relegated to the bench by Mourinho after playing in Uniteds 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on the opening day of the new campaign. Herrera was sacrificed for world-record signing Pogba, with Marouane Fellaini keeping his place instead. The decision seemed to pay off as United beat Southampton and Hull, but they soon faltered, and Herrera caught Mourinhos eye as a second-half substitute in their galling 2-1 defeat by Pep Guardiolas Manchester City at Old Trafford. Ander Herrera has impressed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in recent weeks Ander came on in the second half and he was the one who allowed us to recover the ball fast, to press higher, to bring the team higher, to recover the ball, to build a new wave of attack, to put another long ball into the last line, said Mourinho. Ander was phenomenal in his attitude.The 27-year-old was back on the bench for the 3-1 defeat by Watford despite Mourinhos praise, but he returned to the starting XI for the 4-1 thrashing of Leicester, and he remained there for their 1-1 draw with Stoke - a performance Mourinho described as Uniteds best of the season so far, despite the frustrating result. With Fellaini back on the bench and the ageing Michael Carrick overlooked, its now Herrera who looks like the best foil for Pogba in an unfamiliar holding role. Indeed, its no coincidence that his return to the side coincided with Pogbas best performance in a United shirt against Leicester, or that Mourinhos men have created more clear-cut chances in the last two games (eight) than in the previous five combined.For while its not always Herrera who plays the final pass, his dynamism from deep injects speed into Uniteds attack. Juan Matas selection ahead of Wayne Rooney has also contributed in that regard, but Herreras underlying importance was highlighted by his absence against Zorya Luhansk, as United mustered just two shots on target in a laboured 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Ander Herrera (21) provided the platform for Paul Pogba (6) to shine against Leicester United missed his quick, accurate distribution. Fellaini brings physical and aerial strengths to the table, but the Belgian does not possess Herreras ability to intelligently recycle possession at speed, nor can he match his urgency off the ball. Premier League tracking data shows Herrera has made 49 sprints per start this season. Fellaini has made just 37. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contracct. Jason Kidd Jersey. Herreras impressive form was recognised with his first call-up to the senior Spain squad last week, and he puts it down to the change of position. Its going well, he said. I know I have to keep working to earn Mourinhos confidence even more, but its true that I feel good in the new position and its also true that maybe that little change of position was what has allowed me to receive a Spain call-up. Ander Herrera impressed in a defensive midfield position against Leicester As well as adding speed and incisiveness to Uniteds general play, his defensive output has given Pogba greater licence to attack. Paul is a very strong, very physical player who shoots with both feet, said Herrera. He can dribble, he can defend. He has it all. I can then stay back to steal the ball, to keep the position, and from there initiate attacks.Herrera is excelling in that regard. The midfielder made more interceptions than any of his team-mates in Uniteds games against Leicester and Stoke (11), and his combination of front-foot defending and smart distribution has helped Mourinhos side turn defence into attack with greater fluency. VOTE: Liverpool v Man Utd top 50 Who is the greatest Liverpool or Manchester United player in Premier League history? Its had a knock-on effect on his midfield partner. Pogba scored his first goal and produced a man-of-the-match display in the win over Leicester and the Frenchman has created more scoring chances (seven) and had more shots on target (three) in his last two Premier League appearances than in his previous four alongside Fellaini.They are encouraging signs for Mourinho, but Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has urged caution over Herrera and Pogbas good start, and the pairing will be sternly tested in the weeks ahead. I dont think Mourinho will look at that performance against Leicester and think Pogba and Herrera are his midfield two, said Neville. Ander Herrera brought the best out of Paul Pogba against Leicester United have got three games in the next six that are against Chelsea, Liverpool and City, and they still have to build up that trust to him, to us, the crowd, that they are good enough to play in these big matches. Can they then go and deliver in the bigger games and against the better opposition? Thats when the ultimate test will come.It starts at Anfield on Monday night. Jurgen Klopps side rank top for chances created and goals scored this season, and the speed and fluidity of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho will test Herrera like never before. This, though, is the opportunity the Spaniard has been waiting for. How he comes through it could prove decisive.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the British Masters on Sky Sports.
