Sané and Pedersen had a coming together and verbal altercation when the teams were heading towards the tunnel for the halftime interval.
Bayern Munich had to work incredibly hard for their 3-1 win over FC Augsburg at the Allianz Arena and, as is often the case against their Bavarian rivals, it was a rather physical encounter that had it’s faire share of feisty duels. A brace from Harry Kane and an own goal from Augsburg’s Felix Uduokhai after a good bit of interplay between Serge Gnabry and Sané was enough to see Thomas Tuchel’s side to their second win in the Bundesliga, but tempers did flare at the halftime whistle when the two sets of players were heading to make their way down the tunnel and into their respective dressing rooms.
Sané started down the right flank for Bayern, while Mads Pedersen started at left back for Augsburg, and the pair of players saw a fair amount of each other in the first half, though there was solid interchangeability in the movements between Sané, Gnabry, Kane, and Kingsley Coman. As far as Sané and Pedersen were concerned, there were a few instances where the two players aggressively blocked the other off, and neither player took too kindly to being on the receiving end. They were the sort of instances that really build a lot of tension, especially when things were still deadlocked at 0-0.
By the time he halftime whistle had gone, Bayern were up 2-0 thanks to the own goal and the dispatched Kane penalty, but Sané and Pedersen were seen having a verbal spat with one another on their way to the tunnel. The Augsburg defender had clearly said something Sané didn’t appreciate, so much to the point that the Bayern winger shoved Pederson in the back and had to be restrained by one of Bayern’s assistant coaches as the players made their way down to the tunnel.
After the match, Pedersen said the whole incident was a dead issue and that both players were just caught up in the heat of the intensity of the match. “That’s football. It’s always a bit aggressive, there’s nothing between us. We had two scenes in the game where I blocked him once and he blocked me once. These are emotions and heat of the moment in football. We clarified it after the game and wished each other all the best for the season. I know how much quality he has, so you have to play a bit on the body and block him. Maybe we’ll meet in Munich sometime in the city and chat a bit more,” the Danish defender explained (via @iMiaSanMia).

A recent Channel 4 documentary titled “UNTOLD: The Secret World of Fight Clubs" delves into the shocking and underground trend of bare-knuckle fighting prevalent across the UK. The documentary exposes the gritty reality of these no-rule brawls, featuring participants like Alex Etherington, who not only took part in such a brutal event but also lost his ear in the process. Etherington, who now keeps his detached ear in a jar, shares his firsthand experience, providing insight into the world of these unrestricted fighting rings.
In an underground fight club documentary by Channel 4 titled “UNTOLD: The Secret World of Fight Clubs" a shocking trend of bare-knuckle fighting across the UK was exposed. The documentary reveals the gritty reality of these no-rule brawls. Among the participants was Alex Etherington, who took part in this disturbing trend fight, and lost his ear. He now keeps his detached ear in a jar. Etherington recounted his experience with these unrestricted fighting rings.
Speaking to the Sun, Alex said, “I felt lucky to get on King Of The Streets. It’s quite sought after. I only got on it because my friend vouched for me. It got half a million views on YouTube and I got around 7,000 followers on Instagram overnight. I didn’t know what was going to happen because it was my first No Rules fight. I couldn’t really have a game-plan really. I didn’t know what to expect."

Alex Etherington faced Bachir ‘Bash’ Fakhouri in the fight and recalling the fight, he said, “He was desperate for a win as he’d come off a few losses. Ten seconds in, he bit my ear off. I didn’t know it had come off at first. Blood was trickling down my face. He wouldn’t let go of my hair. I ended up getting whiplash from it. He was going for my eyes." Eye gouging is permitted during the fights, although according to Alex, they’re typically halted before the pressure causes any harm.
Alex went to the hospital after the fight where doctors informed him that his torn ear couldn’t be reattached as “it wasn’t a clean cut. There was a risk of infections too, so there was no chance. It’s quite a big chunk, about the width of your pinkie finger." Despite the severe injury, the fighter expressed that it doesn’t bother him. Upon returning home, Alex showed his girlfriend, Fizza Khan, the torn ear, who insisted he keep it. Interestingly, Alex decided to store his piece of ear in a jar filled with an alcohol solution, following advice from someone and placed it in the kitchen on a shelf.
Meanwhile, Alex Etherington refrains from disclosing his fight earnings but the estimated payouts are around £2,000 (approximately Rs 2 lakh). He clarified that fighters receive compensation only when the win and highlighted that the amount isn’t enough to become a full time fighter. For Alex, engaging in this activity wasn’t about establishing a career but rather fulfilling a bucket list wish. He expressed satisfaction due to lack of rules and limitations, describing the experience as a taste of genuine freedom that left him excited for weeks after the fight.

Monty Williams rips Pistons for lack of 'fight' during skid – ESPN

Published

on





Detroit Pistons coach Monty Williams called out his team for its lack of “fight” after another blowout loss, saying his players are not honoring “the organization and the jersey.”
Williams delivered a brief but passionate statement to reporters Monday night after Detroit’s 126-107 home loss to the Washington Wizards in a matchup of the NBA’s two worst teams.
It was the fourteenth consecutive loss for the Pistons (2-15), who now own the NBA’s worst record and have not won a game in a month. The lowly Wizards (3-14), who had not won since Nov. 8, shot 51% from the floor and had seven scorers in double figures against the Pistons, who have lost three of their past four games by a least 19.
“That wasn’t fight on the floor,” Williams said. “That wasn’t Pistons basketball by any stretch of the imagination. That’s what this is — we have to have people that honor the organization and the jersey by competing at a high level every night.
“I’m not talking about execution, just competing. That wasn’t it, and that’s on me.”
In a postgame media session that lasted only one minute, Williams opened by saying he was “very” disappointed with the loss and described the Pistons’ overall spirit in the game as “poor.”
Williams told reporters before the game that the Pistons held a players-only meeting Friday, saying that “accountability” was a key talking point and that he loves working with the young roster.
But Williams was much harsher in his tone after the loss.
“It’s just a level of growing up on this team, maturity, understanding what game-plan discipline is — all the stuff we talk about all the time,” he said. “It’s enough talking.”
Third-year forward Isaiah Livers said he agreed with Williams’ assessment.
“There are a lot of little things we can talk about, but we just didn’t play hard,” Livers said. “Every team has roles, and it feels like none of us are playing our roles to the best of our abilities.”
Star guard Cade Cunningham, who admitted last week that the Pistons are “bad” in a candid assessment of the team, told the Detroit Free Press that he and his teammates are making mistakes because they are “not physical enough or not aggressive enough.”
“We all wanna win really bad,” Cunningham told the Free Press. “Everybody’s doing it out of the spirit of that — wanting to win, wanting to do what’s best for the team.
“I think we need more aggressive mess ups. Where we’re struggling right now is slip ups where we’re not physical enough or not aggressive enough. That’s what we need to lean towards instead of trying not to press.”
The 14-game losing streak ties the second-longest in Pistons franchise history, and their schedule does not get easier in the short term. After Wednesday’s home game against the Lakers (10-8), the Pistons travel to New York the next day to face the Knicks (9-7) before returning home Saturday to host the Cavaliers (9-8).
If they cannot win one of those games, the Pistons will be in danger of approaching the longest skid in their history — a 21-game losing streak that bridged the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons.
“We play great stretches, and then we’ve had crazy bad stretches where we dig ourselves in too deep of a hole,” Cunningham told the Free Press. “That’s it right there — it’s just holding each other accountable and when we do feel it start to slip, having the mental stamina to stay together, stay connected.”
