LAS VEGAS — Veteran Montreal lightweight John (The Bull) Makdessi won a split decision over Chile's Ignacio Bahamondes on a UFC Fight Night card Saturday. The judges scored the all-action bout 28-29, 29-28, 30-27 for Makdessi, who was the bookmakers' underdog. The Canadian held a 124-112 in significant strikes, according to UFC Stats. Makdessi (18-7-0) was taken to hospital after the fight "for precautionary reasons." It marked the 18th UFC fight for the 35-year-old Makdessi who made his debut with the promotion at UFC 124 in December 2010. He improved to 11-7-0 in the UFC. The 23-year-old Bahamondes, who moved to the U.S. at 16 to pursue his fighting dream, was making his UFC debut after posting a November win in Dana White's Contender Series. He had won seven of his previous eight fights. At six foot three, Bahamondes (11-4-0) had a seven-inch height advantage over Makdessi who prepared for the fight at The MMA Lab and several other gyms in Arizona. Former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson was in his corner. Bahamondes missed weight, tipping the scales at 156.75 — just over the 156-pound non-title limit for lightweights. He forfeited 20 per cent of his purse to Makdessi. After a good start, Bahamondes was hurt midway through the round when Makdessi clipped him with a left to the head. Makdessi punished him at the fence with a powerful right, forcing Bahamondes to reach for a clinch. Makdessi kept coming, cutting Bahamondes under the right eye. Makdessi scored with his jab as both fighters connected with strikes in the second round. Bahamondes also found his range, with Makdessi's face showing damage. Both fighters did damage in the third round, taking their lumps and punching back. Makdessi had not fought since March 2020 when he lost by unanimous decision to Francisco Trinaldo. He subsequently underwent knee surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament. In the main event at the UFC's Apex production facility, Marvin (The Italian Dream) Vettori used his superior grappling skills to take Kevin (Trailblazer) Holland down a record 11 times en route to a unanimous 50-44 decision. It was Vettori's fifth straight win. Vettori (17-4-1) is ranked No. 6 among UFC middleweight contenders while Holland (21-7-0) is No. 10.

The defending Stanley Cup champions found a way to get better, the NHL's top team solved a problem that has hurt it in the past, and another filled a major void created by an injury. Some of hockey's best teams got a head start on the trade deadline Saturday by making important moves and scooping up some of the hottest players on the market. The cap-strapped, reigning champion Tampa Bay Lightning surrendered three draft picks to get defenceman David Savard, the Colorado Avalanche landed veteran goaltender Devan Dubnyk, and the Florida Panthers did something to compensate for Aaron Ekblad's absence by acquiring defenceman Brandon Montour. “They have a team to go for another run and go for the Stanley Cup," Savard said of the Lightning. “They’ve had a great team for numbers of years, so I'm really excited to go on a team that has a chance to win the Stanley Cup. I couldn’t be more pumped to go meet the guys and be part of the team and go on a run again.” Given the Lightning's salary-cap situation, general manager Julien BriseBois said a month ago, “Realistically, I think it’s unlikely that we’re going to be adding a player between now and the trade deadline.” It was only possible because the Columbus Blue Jackets retained half of Savard's salary — for a 2021 first- and a 2022 third-round pick — and the Detroit Red Wings took 25% for a fourth-rounder and Tampa Bay taking minor leaguer Brian Lashoff. Savard gives Tampa Bay a physical presence on the right side of the blue line, a role Zach Bogosian, now with Toronto, filled during the 2020 Cup run. The Lightning also expect to get 2019 MVP Nikita Kucherov back from hip surgery when the playoffs begin in mid-May. Kucherov, the Lighting's leading scorer on the way to the Cup, has been on long-term injured reserve all season. Colorado didn't go on as long a run in the playoff bubble as it would have liked after top two goalies Philipp Grubauer and Pavel Francouz went down with injuries. After acquiring goalie Jonas Johansson last month, general manager Joe Sakic added more depth in goal with Dubnyk by sending defenceman Greg Pateryn and a fifth-round pick to San Jose. He also gave the locker room a boost with the Avalanche atop the league standings. “I think it sends a pretty strong message that obviously he believes in this group and that we are trying to make a run at this thing,” Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said. “That’s been no secret from Day 1 of training camp.” Florida is a new addition to the class of Cup contenders and was in that stratosphere in large part because of Ekblad's play before his season-ending injury in late March. The Panthers can't replace Ekblad, but they took a step past his injury by sending a third-round pick to Buffalo for Montour. “He’s a very skilled defenceman,” Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov said. “He can help us with the puck and the offensive game, holds the puck really well. Good addition." With less than 48 hours remaining until the deadline, there are many prominent players still waiting to find out where they're going. Buffalo is also expected to trade winger Taylor Hall; Detroit centre Luke Glendening and goalie Jonathan Bernier are available; and Columbus could listen on captain Nick Foligno, who is a pending free agent. ___ Follow AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at https://twitter.com/SWhyno ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Stephen Whyno, The Associated Press
With close to one million British Columbians having received a first shot of COVID-19 vaccine, officials announced on Saturday that people aged 60 or older could call to register for their turn. The jump in age cohort is a big one. As of Thursday, those 65 or older could call to register. On Saturday, the province sent out a release bumping that up five years, to those people born in 1961 or earlier. Indigenous people 18 or older and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable can also now register to book their vaccine appointment through B.C.'s new Get Vaccinated system. The province is also vaccinating people between the ages of 55 and 65 with the AstraZeneca vaccine in local pharmacies throughout the province. People wait in line to receive an AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Vancouver on March 31.(CBC News) The province says that since the Get Vaccinated provincial registration and booking system started on April 6, nearly 650,000 British Columbians have registered and more than 170,000 have booked their shot. Nearly 170 mass vaccinations clinics throughout the province are now operating. The province hopes to vaccinate around 40,000 people a day. So far, 1,025,019 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered, with 87,606 of those being second doses. A record high of 40,018 people were vaccinated in B.C. on Thursday.
The referee stepped in to end the contest after one minute and 22 seconds.
Onion Lake RCMP arrested two men who allegedly discharged a firearm at a residence on Onion Lake. Onion Lake RCMP say they responded to a call at about 9:30 a.m. on April 10. The two men fled in a vehicle, which they later abandoned and then allegedly stole another truck and trailer with Saskatchewan license plate 271 IRC. The truck was last seen in the area of Range Road 33 and Township Road 512. RCMP had issued a warning to the public saying the two men were believed to be armed and dangerous. The two were arrested without incident this afternoon and police haven’t released their names. All stolen vehicles were recovered. Onion Lake Cree Nation declared a state of emergency in January 2020 after the Nation experienced increased drug and gang-related activity. Onion Lake Cree Nation borders the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan and is located about 50 kilometres north of Lloydminster.

A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday: ENGLAND The race for the Premier League's top four takes centre stage as Manchester United heads to Tottenham and West Ham hosts Leicester. United can consolidate second place with a win at seventh-place Tottenham, which won 6-1 at Old Trafford at the start of the season. Four points separate third-place Leicester and West Ham, which dropped to sixth after Saturday's results. Chelsea and Liverpool are between them. Newcastle is three points clear of the bottom three going into its match at Burnley, while last-place Sheffield United is on the verge of relegation ahead of a home game against Arsenal. SPAIN Atlético Madrid needs at least a point from its visit to sixth-place Real Betis to regain the lead in the Spanish league. Real Madrid moved to the top — thanks to a better head-to-head tiebreaker — after beating Barcelona 2-1 in the clásico in Madrid on Saturday. Barcelona stayed one point behind the Madrid city rivals. Seeking its first league title since 2014, Atlético has won only one of its last three league matches. Also Sunday, Valencia hosts fifth-place Real Sociedad and Granada visits relegation-threatened Valladolid. It will be Valencia's first match since defender Mouctar Diakhaby accused an opponent of racially insulting him last weekend. ITALY Inter Milan is aiming for an 11th straight win to restore its 11-point lead atop Serie A when it hosts relegation-threatened Cagliari. Behind it there is a tight battle for second place. AC Milan currently occupies that position and won 3-1 at Parma on Saturday. But Juventus can move to within a point of the Rossoneri with a win at home to Genoa. Atalanta is just a point behind Juve and visits Fiorentina while fifth-place Napoli travels to Sampdoria. Lazio and Roma are also within sight of the top four and the Champions League places. Lazio and Roma play Hellas Verona and Bologna respectively. FRANCE It looks like a huge mismatch as third-place Monaco hosts last-place Dijon. While Monaco has lost once in the last 19 games overall, Dijon is facing a 13th straight defeat. Fourth-place Lyon has a tougher-looking home game against midtable Angers. Lyon, which is one point behind Monaco in the chase for a Champions League spot, will be without midfielder Houssem Aouar and forward Tino Kadewere. They are both injured. Fifth-place Lens has five players out due to coronavirus for the home game against Lorient. Rennes continues its push for fifth and a Europa League spot against visiting Nantes. Nantes won the last of its eight league titles 20 years ago but is now languishing in 19th place. Nantes coach Antoine Kombouare played down a locker room clash with captain Nicolas Pallois, saying it was a healthy part of the game. GERMANY The Bundesliga’s relegation fight heats up with last-place Schalke hosting Augsburg before Cologne welcomes Mainz. Mainz can leave the relegation zone with a win, and it has looked a different outfit since Bo Svensson took over as coach. Svensson’s team is unbeaten in four games. Cologne is 17th in the 18-team division — two points below Mainz — and on a seven-game winless run since beating Borussia Mönchengladbach. Schalke is 16 points from safety with seven games to play but the Gelsenkirchen-based club still has pride at stake as it prepares for life in the second division. A win over 11th-place Augsburg would be just the team’s second league win in a season that Schalke fans will want to forget. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
