#1 cks and only eight quarterback pressures, ac von anda0012 22.06.2019 14:25

MOSCOW -- The Moscow-backed leader of the Russian region of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, faced criticism Wednesday after his sons took part in televised mixed martial arts fights involving children as young as 8.One of Kadyrovs sons, 10-year-old Akhmad, beat another boy by a technical knockout in the cage during a so-called exhibition bout on a nationally televised fight card Tuesday, while his younger brothers Eli and Adam also won their fights as a crowd of adults in the hall cheered them on.The children walked into the ring with background music, were announced in the same way as pro fighters and were rewarded with belts when they won, with their father looking on. The TV broadcast from the Chechen capital Grozny was chiefly focused on adult bouts, but featured professional commentary and graphics introducing the child fighters.Kadyrov was inaugurated Wednesday to a new term as Chechnyas leader on his 40th birthday.Leading Russian MMA pro Fedor Emelianenko called the fights unacceptable and dangerous in a statement on his Instagram page, and said the children risked permanent injury and psychological harm.What happened at the tournament in Grozny is unacceptable and, moreover, cannot be justified, said Emelianenko, who heads the Russian MMA Union. There were little ones, eight years old, punching each other in front of happy adults. Is it really so important for you to organize a spectacle at the cost of childrens health?!It was incomprehensible to me that state TV showed childrens fights, he added.Emelianenko said children under the age of 12 should not be allowed to take part in any MMA fights and that anyone under the age of 21 must wear a helmet and protective gear for safety reasons. The children in the televised bouts fought bare-headed. In at least one case, a child received a heavy blow to the head.Kadyrov posted videos of the fights to his own Instagram page along with congratulatory comments for his sons. A defeated 10-year-old opponent showed real masculine character, Kadyrov wrote, adding: Im sure there are victorious fights ahead.Kadyrov has been repeatedly accused of human rights violations during his rule of Chechnya, including murders and forced disappearances.He is a noted sports fan, overseeing a Russian Premier League soccer team, and once challenged one of his ministers to a boxing match after criticizing his work.Kadyrov, who is a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, won re-election as Chechnyas leader last month with almost 98 percent of the vote, according to regional election authorities. He faces almost no organized political opposition. Cheap Craig Biggio Jersey .

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders will likely have to wait at least another week to get defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. back on the field for the first time this season.Coach Jack Del Rio said Friday that the team did not anticipate activating Edwards from injured reserve to play in Sundays game at San Diego. Edwards has been sidelined since injuring his hip in the preseason opener in August and returned to practice last week. The Raiders have until Dec. 26 to decide whether to activate Edwards or shut him down for the rest of the season.Well get him ready for next week, Del Rio said. Theres always a chance, but in all likelihood well hold off. ... The reality is hes had a good week, and Id like him to get another good week. Hes getting close.Edwards, a second-round pick out of Florida State last year, made 10 starts as a rookie and was emerging as a key player on Oaklands improving defense late last season before getting hurt. Edwards had 2 1/2 sacks, provided pressure on the quarterback and was stout against the run.But he has been plagued by injuries. He missed the final two games last year with a significant neck injury that kept him out of most of the offseason program.Edwards then hurt his hip in the preseason opener at Arizona on Aug. 12 and began the season on injured reserve. Oakland had initially hoped to get him back midway through the season.It will definitely help, defensive tackle Dan Williams said of getting Edwards back. Mario is a talented guy, a talented rusher. He was one of our leaders on the inside last year. Getting a good football player who is healthy and has fresh legs is exciting when were tryinng to make this stretch run.ddddddddddddThe Raiders have missed Edwards pass-rush ability from the inside to complement edge rushers Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin. Only Cleveland has fewer than Oaklands 22 sacks so far this season, with Mack (11) and Irvin (5) providing 16 of them.Obviously, Khalil is getting his numbers, Bruce is a presence off the edge. I think our edge press is pretty good, Del Rio said. I think as our interior pressure goes a little bit better and our coverage is a little tighter, I think those numbers will jump up. Hopefully that can start this weekend.Edwards had been counted on to give that inside push on passing downs. But with him sidelined, rookie Jihad Ward has been called on to try to fill that hole.Ward has no sacks and only eight quarterback pressures, according to Sportradar. But Del Rio sees the tools that made Ward a second-round pick and hopes it turns into production.He plays hard, plays with great energy. Hes very similar to how Malik Jackson was his first year in Denver, Del Rio said. Close on a lot of things. Doesnt make a lot of plays his first year, or hasnt done thus far, but he gives great energy.Game notes Oakland will also be without rookie safety Karl Joseph, who will miss his second straight game with a toe injury. ... DT Stacy McGee (ankle) and LB Shilique Calhoun (knee) are also out. ... DT Darius Latham (ankle) is questionable this week after missing the previous two games.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
