Stipe Miocic became UFC heavyweight champion after knocking out Fabricio Werdum in Brazil, but what did we learn? UFC 198 results Details of wins for Miocic, Souza, Cyborg Championship merry-go-round continues Stipe Miocic is the new world champion Heavyweight title fights have become - largely due to former champion Cain Velasquezs injuries - a rare occurrence, yet even rarer is a title-holder with an iron grip on his belt.Werdum seemed on the verge of being anointed one of the greatest heavyweight fighters, but such recognition might have to be shelved after his first title defence ended in disaster inside three minutes. Prior to Werdums forgettable reign, Velasquez had an injury-ridden spell as champion that saw him defend only twice, both times against opponents who he had already defeated.There will be pressure on Miocic to return to the cage quickly, having escaped his title win apparently unscathed. Alistair Overeem awaits as the obvious challenger who seems more than capable of continuing the merry-go-round.Dont take it on the chin Is this safety-first approach advisable for new champion Miocic (left)? When 260lbs men strap on 4oz gloves, it is advisable to keep your hands up because, worryingly, there does not seem to be a heavyweight contender capable of withstanding his rivals punches.Miocic is relatively fresh at 33 yet four years ago he was knocked out by Stefan Struve.Werdum had been stopped once before Miocic flattened him, while the next challenger Overeem has suffered three knockouts in the last three years alone. Floyd confident of McGregor fight Floyd Mayweather Jr has added to speculation of a potential fight with Conor McGregor Everyones chin, it appears, can be exposed in this division, which suggests the secret to a successful reign might be a reluctance to rely upon trading strikes.Miocic demonstrated this ability by holding Mark Hunt to the ground for much of their 23-minute fight a year ago - so is that how he should continue?What to do with Cyborg? Cris Cyborg Justino continued her winning streak Cristiane Cyborg Justino made a frightening impact on her long-awaited UFC debut, finally stepping into the big leagues after years of threatening to launch an assault on the evolving womens scene.A swift stoppage of Leslie Smith extended her run to 11 consecutive knockouts, suggesting she is a match for anyone wearing world championship gold, but questions remain about how to fit her into the puzzle.Having never made the weight limit of 135lbs for the biggest womens division, Cyborg was afforded a catchweight fight of 140lbs against Smith. She duly won against an oversized opponent who isnt even ranked in the top 15 of the 135lbs division.Having then failed to mention established contenders Ronda Rousey or Holly Holm in her post-fight speech, we are no clearer to discovering whether Cyborg merits her fearsome nickname.Has Souza pipped Bisping? Ronaldo Jacare Souza might have stolen Michael Bispings thunder Englands Michael Bisping must have been expecting the next crack at the middleweight championship having defeated the former champion, Anderson Silva, in February. But the performance of Ronaldo Jacare Souza has cast that into doubt.Souza dominated and eventually finished another former title-holder, Vitor Belfort, inside the first round while Bisping was taken the distance by Silva. In the UFCs official rankings at 185lbs, Bisping is No 4 behind both Souza and Belfort.To complicate matters, current champion Luke Rockhold already holds win over his two most obvious challengers. All eyes will turn to Rockholds next title defence against Chris Weidman next month, before Bisping learns his fate.Legends battle on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira won for the first time in three years Werdum and Belfort may have been comprehensively beaten by younger, fresher contenders, but, aged 38 and 39 respectively, they remain viable fighters. And they are not alone, with a host of Brazilian veterans refusing to quietly step out of the spotlight.Mauricio Shogun Rua, a 34-fight veteran and ex-champion, beat 26-year-old up-and-comer Corey Anderson. Demian Maia, at 38, has scarcely looked better than his submission win over Matt Brown. And, a month shy of his 40th birthday, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira knocked out Pat Cummins and continues to be listed in the top 10 of his division.Dont count out the old-timers just yet.

Dwight Clark Jersey . -- Antoine Bibeau bought the Val-dOr Foreurs valuable time at the Memorial Cup with his 51-save shutout Friday. CHICAGO -- It didnt take long for the San Antonio Spurs to show the Chicago Bulls why theyre leading the NBA. Manu Ginobili scored 22 points and Tony Parker had 20 points and nine assists, and the Spurs beat the Bulls 104-96 Tuesday night for their seventh straight win and 10th in their last 11. San Antonio jumped out to a big advantage early, taking a 38-14 lead after one quarter and going up 61-33 into halftime. That helped them improve to 24-6 on the road, the NBAs best mark away from home. Kawhi Leonard added 16 and nine rebounds for the Spurs (47-16), who maintained their hold on the NBAs best record. With the win they stayed a half-game ahead of Oklahoma City and Indiana, who both won. "Wonderful game, we were very sharp," Ginobili said. "We made a lot of shots in the beginning, which gave us a lead that ... its easier to play like that." Parker had 18 at halftime and went 8 for 15 from the field for a team that made 51 per cent overall against one of the NBAs best defensive clubs. Ginobili was 9 of 11. Also the leagues top 3-point shooting team at 39.2 per cent, San Antonio made 12 of 21 from behind the arc, including four from Ginobili. That and the big first half added up to another win for the Spurs, who are 14-3 since a 96-86 loss to Chicago on Jan. 29 and can improve on that Wednesday at home against Portland. The Spurs roster is finally healthy, something coach Gregg Popovich noted. "We seem like were playing pretty consistently now," Popovich said. "I dont think were going to win every game down the stretch." The Bulls, meanwhile, were coming off a dramatic 95-88 win Sunday over the Heat but couldnt build off that victory, falling to 1-2 on a season-high six-game homestand that also has games with the Rockets, Kings and Thunder. Coach Tom Thibodeau blamed himself for the slow start. "I told them, thats completely on me. My job is to have them ready. We had no edge to us," Thibodeau said. "Thats a championship-calibre team thats playing on all cylinders and theyre going after it, so if you dont match that intensity to start, you arre going to get in a big hole.dddddddddddd "So I didnt prepare them the way they needed to be prepared for that, so thats on me." D.J. Augustin led the Bulls with 24 points and Jimmy Butler had 23. Joakim Noah, whose name has started to be mentioned in MVP discussions, had 13 and eight rebounds. That all was a far cry from Sunday, when the Bulls held Miami to 40.5 per cent shooting and overcame a 42.2 per cent shooting game of their own. That didnt happen Tuesday for the Bulls, who were 43 per cent from the field. "Its on us," Butler said. "Were the ones out there playing, so we have to bring it each and every night. Thibs can only do so much. You learn from it." The Bulls saw early how costly a slow start can be, only pulling to within eight late in the fourth quarter. Ginobilis reverse layup with a second left in the period gave San Antonio a 38-14 lead after the first. The Spurs ended the half leading by 28 and hitting 61 per cent from the field, looking like a team peaking. Ginobili, however, hopes they arent doing that too early. "Its not the right time yet. Still 20 games to go," Ginobili said. NOTES: Spurs guard and former Bull Marco Belinelli scored 10 points and got a warm reception when he checked in for the first time with 10.1 seconds left in the first quarter. ... Spurs coach Gregg Popovich noted Belinellis contributions and jokingly said hes "a great source for Italian restaurants around the league." ... Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is not surprised fatigue hasnt hit his team yet, despite its lack of depth. "Whatever it is that youre facing, youve got to be ready to accept that challenge and be ready to play," he said. ... Because of the injuries the Spurs have suffered this season, Popovich was asked if this season has been his best coaching job. "Havent they all been brilliant?" he said. "I got no clue. My 2-22 season in Pomona was my best." ... Popovich said Noahs personality is "the opposite" of Duncan in terms of showing emotion, but praised the Bulls centres emotional fire.
