TORONTO - Taking a page from its Canadian division, the UFC has announced its full schedule for 2015 with 45 fight cards including three to five in Canada. Nike Air Max Suomi .There will be 13 pay-per-view shows and 32 televised Fight Night cards.Toronto, Montreal and Calgary were identified as target cities for Canada but no dates have been attached to those shows yet. The UFC didnt say which other Canadian cities might be considered although Hamilton, London, Moncton, Ottawa, St. Johns, Saskatoon and Windsor have all been touted as venues for possible future televised shows. Im excited to get back up in Canada, UFC Dana White told a news conference Monday in Las VegasIts the first time that the mixed martial arts promoter has announced its full schedule for the year. But its not a first for Canada.Tom Wright, managing director for UFC operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, has lobbied for releasing the schedule months in advance to make life easier for fans and business partners.The news is not cast in stone, however. Fighters get injured and some fight cards demand a higher profile than others as shown by the 2014 Canadian schedule.In January, the UFC announced a five-city 2014 schedule for Canada with pay-per-views shows in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver and Fight Night cards in Halifax and Quebec City.That turned out to be just three events when UFC 178 was shifted to Las Vegas from Toronto and the Montreal card was cancelled.In making the scheduling announcement in Las Vegas, with 14 elite fighters on stage, the UFC did not attach cities or fighters to the dates other than those already announced for the first two months of the year.Wright said in an interview that Toronto, Montreal and Calgary could all be pay-per-view shows. Toronto and Montreal have never hosted anything else. UFC 149 in Calgary in July 2012 was a somewhat cursed show with a string of injuries, prompting White to promise a top-quality make-up show at some point in the future.The Montreal date could be in March, with the UFC having a date reserved for that month at the Bell Centre. The UFC schedule calls for UFC 185 on March 14.Canada can expect to host a 2015 welterweight title bout featuring Rory MacDonald, a native of Kelowna, B.C., who now fights out of Montreal. White has already confirmed that MacDonald will meet the winner of the UFC 181 main event Dec. 6 between 170-pound champion Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks and (Ruthless) Robbie Lawler.Asked about Calgary as a possible site for the MacDonald title bout, White said: Possibly. Could happen. Makes sense. Montreal might make even more sense for MacDonald, who has said he would like to fight in Vancouver, given his druthers. The timing and host city could come down to how the 170-pound champion emerges from the Dec. 6 fight.Wright said the remaining two Canadian cities on the calendar would likely be new host cities.The UFC has held 17 shows in Canada, with stops in Calgary, Halifax, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The UFC said roughly half the 45 events will take place in the U.S., with six in Las Vegas. There will be seven events in Brazil (including at least one pay-per-view) and two in Mexico.There will be five to six events in Europe and the Middle East with Ireland, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom cited as target markets. Potential new markets are Poland, the Netherlands and Russia with a possible return to Abu Dhabi.There will be one or two events in Australia and a return to Asia for two or three events with China, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea identified as target markets.Of the non-pay-per view cards, 22 will be on TV and the other 10 on the UFCs Fight Pass web service.The televised shows will be on Fox, Fox 1 or Fox Sports 2 in the U.S. The UFC has yet to reveal details of its new TV deal in Canada — Sportsnet is the current rights-holder — but is expected to make an announcement in a week to 10 days.Featherweight contender Conor McGregor had plenty to say on stage Monday but former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre got more than a few mentions. The 33-year-old Montreal star is currently on hiatus from the sport and has yet to announce a return, although he is back training after a knee injury suffered during his absence.As soon as hes ready to fight, hell let us know, said White, who went to Montreal recently with UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta to meet St-Pierre. But Im very confident that hes coming back.St-Pierre told a different story. Asked about his fighting future, he said Im not sure in a text to The Canadian Press.The UFC boss had promised a separate major announcement Monday but said he had not been able to get it down in time.Nick Diaz, meanwhile, took a few potshots at St-Pierre after hearing that the Canadian thought he might be in trouble fighting at 185 pounds. The former Strikeforce champion, beaten by GSP at 170 pounds at UFC 158, takes on former middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 183 in January.Georges didnt take the (Silva) fight ... Now I take the fight and hes running his mouth, said Diaz.---UFC 2015 ScheduleJan. 3 - UFC 182, Las Vegas, Jones vs. CormierJan. 18 - UFC Fight Night, Boston, McGregor vs. SiverJan. 24 - UFC Fight Night, Stockholm, Gustafsson vs. JohnsonJan. 31 - UFC 183, Las Vegas,Silva vs. DiazFeb. 14 - UFC Fight Night, Broomfield, Colo., Brown vs. SaffiedineFeb. 22 - UFC Fight NightFeb. 28 - UFC 184, Los Angeles, Weidman vs. BelfortMarch 7 - UFC Fight NightMarch 14 - UFC 185March 21 - UFC Fight NightApril 4 - UFC Fight NightApril 11- UFC Fight NightApril 18 - UFC Fight NightApril 25 - UFC 186May 15 - UFC Fight NightMay 16 - UFC Fight NightMay 23 - UFC 187May 30 - UFC Fight NightJune 6 - UFC Fight NightJune 13 - UFC 188June 20 - UFC Fight NightJune 27 - UFC Fight NightJuly 11 - UFC 189July 12 - UFC Fight NightJuly 15 - UFC Fight NightJuly 18 - UFC Fight NightJuly TBA - UFC Fight NightJuly 25 - UFC Fight NightAug. 1 - UFC 190Aug. 8 - UFC Fight NightAug. 23 - UFC Fight NightAug. 29 - UFC Fight NightSept. 5 - UFC 191Sept. 19 - UFC Fight NightSept. 26 - UFC Fight NightOct.

Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night. Nike Air Max Ale .C. -- Gleason Fournier scored the shootout winner as the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 Friday in American Hockey League action. http://www.suomiairmax.com/ . -- Zach Johnson asked his short-iron approach on the par-4 18th to "Do something right, baby.VAL DISERE, France -- On a day dominated by veterans, 34-year-old Mario Matt won his 14th World Cup slalom race to equal his Austrian countryman Benjamin Raichs mark while 35-year-old Patrick Thaler of Italy got on the podium for first time in nearly five years. Matt, a two-time former slalom world champion, safely protected his first-run lead while other contenders struggled on the notoriously tough Stade Olympique de Bellevarde course. "The last two years I was a few times on the podium, but always had some small mistakes on the runs and didnt win," Matt said. "I dont have the feeling Im old. Sometimes I have the problems with the back but I already had this eight years ago, and when I dont have the problems I feel fine." He beat Swedens Mattias Hargin by 0.53 seconds and Thaler -- second after the first run -- by 0.78 for his 15th overall World Cup win, with the other coming in supercombined. "You have to push your limits in order to win but I was still surprised how fast I was in the first run," Matt said. "I think no one felt too comfortable, but at least in the second run the first part felt really good so I cant complain." Matt was second in the slalom at Levi, Finland, last month and his most recent previous win was at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, in March 2011, while his first was nearly 14 years ago at Kitzbuehel, Austria. "We trained in great conditions this fall, so thats maybe why I am in good shape this early in the season," he said. It was another disappointing day for the United States when for the second straight day neither Ted Ligety, who finished the first run in 39th, nor Bode Miller, who went off course, qualified for the second run. They failed to finish the first run in Saturdays giant slalom. "It was tough conditions where it was very hard snow but very grippy," U.S. mens head coach Sasha Rearick said. "We have been trying on ice getting ready for Val dIsere, but we didnt make that transition very well today. So thats something were going to have to work on." They next head to Italy to prepare for Saturdays downhill at Val Gardena and Sundays giant slalom at Alta Badia. Nike Air Max Halvalla. "It makes for a kind of interesting week, because youve got glidy, glidy, glidy at Val Garcena and youve got to be on your A game, clean skiing, for Alta Badia," Rearick said. Austrian Marcel Hirscher also failed to qualify. He won Saturdays GS but struggled on the tricky top section and finished way down in 41st. Matt, the slalom world champion in 2001 and 07, is coming into form at just the right time for Februarys Winter Olympics in Sochi. "Its still far away," Matt said. Hargin secured his first podium since finishing third at Schladming, Austria, in January 2011. "Ive been fighting a lot and it meant a lot to get the podium today," the 28-year-old said. "Weve worked really hard and we have a new coach this season." Thalers only other podium -- also third in a slalom at Kitzbuehel, Austria -- was even longer ago, in January 2009. "I think Im the oldest guy ever on the podium in the slalom," he said. "I was a bit emotional." Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Grange finished fourth, 0.04 behind Thaler, and Swedens Markus Larsson was fifth in a far-from-usual top five. Hirscher was aiming for a second consecutive podium double after winning last years GS and finishing third in the slalom, but he made a huge error on the top section and finished 4 seconds slower than Matt after an early-morning first run under clear, blue skies but with temperatures bitingly cold. After failing to make a GS second run for the first time in nearly five years, Ligety was 3.59 slower than Matt. Miller almost fell on the treacherous top section, recovered, but then lost control. Frenchman Alexis Pinturault --fourth in GS -- went off course near the bottom, while Austrias Manfred Pranger also veered off. On a brighter note for the Americans, David Chodounsky finished seventh for a career best slalom performance. "Val dIsere is really tough, steep," the 29-year-old said. "I was really happy with my first run, didnt quite have the confidence to go at it, but it was solid."
