The UFC’s three-event, eight-day stint in its return to Abu Dhabi culminated in Saturday night’s UFC 257. It featured the return of former dual-division champion Conor McGregor, as he faced form interim UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier in a rematch of their 2014 bout. McGregor won their first meeting in one minute and 46 seconds by technical knockout. He didn’t better that mark in the rematch. In fact, it was Poirier that gave McGregor a brutal welcome back to the Octagon after a year on the sidelines. Dustin Poirier knocks out Conor McGregor at UFC 257 The fight opened with McGregor quickly showing his hand speed, stinging Poirier with a combination. Poirier answered by taking McGregor the canvas, though he couldn’t keep him there. Once they returned to their feet, Poirier did a good job keeping McGregor on the fence for a time, but again, couldn’t keep him there either. McGregor fought off the fence, exchanging shoulder punches with Poirier, generally lnading the harder shots. When they came off the fence, McGregor’s boxing was stellar, landing stinging combinations that snapped Poirier’s head back. Though Poirier seemed to be breathing heavily, McGregor couldn’t put him away. As round two opened, Poirier went back to landing calf kicks, several of which he hand landed in round one. But in round two, it was becoming obvious that the kicks were starting to sap stability out of McGregor’s lead leg. McGregor never lacked confidence and kept throwing punches that snapped Poirier’s head back, but he wasn’t to be denied. Though McGregor kept firing off the punches, Poirier may have taken some of the sting out of them by hampering McGregor’s lead leg. That eventually led him to an opening. He took full advantage. Poirier landed another low kick followed by a punch combination that hurt McGregor. He followed with a series of punch combinations that sent McGregor to the canvas. Poirier fired off a couple more punches, leaving referee Herb Dean with no choice but to stop the fight. More than six years following their first meeting, having won an interim title during that span, Poirier exacted his revenge, scoring the biggest victory of his career. “I felt like this was a title fight. If Khabib's not coming back, me and Conor are the two best guys. I think this was the title fight. I’m the champion.” Humbled by the defeat, McGregor had to admit that ring rust is real. “It’s hard to overcome inactivity over long periods of time. The leg kicks were good. That low calf kick was very good. The leg was dead. It’s inactivity and that’s it. Dustin’s tough,” McGregor admitted, but said he fully intends to return to the Octagon again this year. “Of course (I’ll fight again in 2021), I need activity. You don’t get away with being inactive in this business. I’ll take me licks. It's a tough one to swallow.” Dustin Poirier cracks Conor McGregor at UFC 257 Michael Chandler knocks out Dan Hooker, announces his arrival Former Bellator champion Michael Chandler faced a staggering amount of expectation as he entered the Octagon for the first time at UFC 257 opposite Dan Hooker, but he delivered on all fronts. It took him a couple minutes to get going, but once he did, Chandler landed several hard punches. He ate a calf kick from Hooker, but returned fire with a right hand to the body that set up a crushing left hook that sent Hooker to the floor. He followed Hooker down and unloaded with a flurry of hard punches that forced the referee to stop the fight. Super-excited from the electric victory in his UFC debut, Chandler did a sky high back flip off the top of the Octagon fence. As good as Chandler was in the cage, he was just as good on the mic. "A lot of ups and couple downs led me to this," he told Jon Anik. "I tell you all this. This is the greatest moment in my professional life. Conor McGregor, there’s a new king in the lightweight division. Dustin Poirier, your time is coming. Khabib, if you ever do see fit to grace us with your presence back here in the UFC Octagon in your quest for 30, you know you got to beat somebody, so beat me... if you can!" Michael Chandler rocks Dan Hooker at UFC 257 Joanne Calderwood puts on masterful performance against Jessica Eye Jessica Eye and Joanne Calderwood opened with blistering punch and knee exchanges, but Eye kept clinching and pressing to the fence. Calderwood started to flow about three minutes into the fight, landing much better with her kick and punch combinations. Eye, however, did a great job with her uppercuts every time they got close. Calderwood though found her distance in the second round, staying on the outside, landing some brutal punches. Swelling was quickly appearing on Eye's face. Calderwood landed a beautiful knee and kick midway through the round that hurt Eye badly. Eye kept firing back, but at a much slower pace than Calderwood, who was picking Eye apart from the outside. Eye finally scored a takedown late in the second frame, but couldn't do anything with it before the clock ran out. The third round started with Eye quickly pressuring Calderwood up against the fence and kept her there for the first half of the final frame. As soon as they separated, Calderwood landed a hard kick and again picked Eye apart from the outside. Eye tried to shoot, but Calderwood sprawled, clinched and landed several knees to Eye's body and head. She kept it up throughout the final moments of the round, landing more knees and opening a cut around Eye's left brow. It was a tremendous performance by Calderwood, who lost her only fight of 2020 to Jennifer Maia. She won a unanimous decision, immediately injecting her name back into the flyweight championship conversation. Joanne Calderwood cracks Jessica Eye at UFC 257 Makhmud Muradov scores blistering standing knockout of Andrew Sanchez Makhmud Muradov left a lasting impression on the UFC 257 main card with his third round knockout of Andrew Sanchez. Muradov landed a knee and several follow-up punches that led the referee to stop the fight while Sanchez was still standing, but seemingly out of the fight. Makhmud Muradov punches Andrew Sanchez at UFC 257 Marina Rodriguez tops Amanda Ribas Marina Rodriguez opened the UFC 257 pay-per-view with a huge rebound victory over Amanda Ribas. Rodriguez lost to Carla Esparza in her last outing, but rebounded on Saturday night with a TKO stoppage courtesy of her elbow and punches for an early second-round stoppage.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand has reported its first coronavirus case outside of a quarantine facility in more than two months, although there was no immediate evidence the virus was spreading in the community. Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said Sunday the case was a 56-year-old woman who recently returned from Europe. Like other returning travellers, she spent 14 days in quarantine and twice tested negative before being returning home on Jan. 13. She later developed symptoms and tested positive. He said health officials will conduct genome testing but are working under the assumption that the case is a more transmissible variant of the virus. He said they are investigating to see whether its possible she caught the disease from another returning traveller who was staying in the same quarantine facility. New Zealand has eliminated community transmission of the virus, at least for now. Bloomfield said officials are ramping up contact tracing and testing efforts and hope to have more information about the case in the coming days. __ THE VIRUS OUTBREAK: — Year after lockdown, Wuhan dissident more isolated than ever — UK doctors seek review of 12-week gap between vaccine doses — Tunisia extends curfew, ban on protests as virus cases jump — The entire University of Michigan athletic department is pausing after several positive tests for the new COVID-19 variant that transmits at a higher rate. ___ Follow all of AP’s pandemic coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic, https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine and https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak ___ HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING: BEIJING — A Chinese city has completed 2,600 temporary treatment rooms as the country’s north battles new clusters of the coronavirus. The single-occupancy rooms in the city of Nangong in Hebei province just outside Beijing are each equipped with their own heaters, toilets, showers and other amenities, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Special attention has been paid to Hebei because of its proximity to the capital and the province has locked down large areas to prevent further spread of the virus. The provincial capital Shijiazhung and the city of Xingtai, which encompasses Nangong, have been largely sealed off. Community isolation and large-scale testing have also been enforced. The National Health Commission on Sunday reported 19 additional cases in Hebei. The far northeastern province of Heilongjiang reported another 29 cases, linked partly to an outbreak at a meat processing plant. Beijing, where around 2 million residents have been ordered to undergo new testing, reported two new confirmed cases. China currently has 1,800 people being treated for COVID-19, 94 of them listed in serious condition, with another 1,017 being monitored in isolation for having tested positive for the virus without displaying symptoms. ___ SEATTLE — Washington and Oregon are now confirming additional cases of the more contagious variant of COVID-19 in the Pacific Northwest. The Washington Department of Health announced Saturday that the B.1.1.7 variant, which first emerged in the United Kingdom last September, has been confirmed by DNA sequencing in two cases in Snohomish County. Those are the first confirmed cases in Washington. The Oregon Health Authority confirmed a second case, in someone from Yamhill County, a week after the first case was detected in Multnomah County. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no conclusive evidence that it’s more severe than other strains of the virus. ___ NEW YORK -- New York will be sending more vaccination preparation kits to senior housing complexes and churches in an effort to ensure fairness in vaccine distributions, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. The kits include syringes, vials, room dividers, privacy curtains, cleaning supplies, personal protective gear and other items. They also include instructions on how to set up a vaccination site. New York deployed the first kits last week to five New York City Housing Authority senior citizen complexes and eight churches and cultural centres where nearly 4,200 people eligible to receive the vaccine were vaccinated, Cuomo said. Kits are now being sent to four additional New York City senior complexes and eight other churches statewide, with plans to vaccine another 3,000 people at those locations by Tuesday. Locations in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Nassau County, Suffolk County, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, and Buffalo will be receiving the kits. The kits are part of an effort to ensure vaccinations in Black, Latino and other communities where COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact, the governor said. Also Saturday, the governor’s office reported 144 more deaths statewide from the coronavirus. More than 8,800 people were hospitalized, a drop of 44 compared with Friday’s data. ___ SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court has denied a Southern California church’s request to overturn the state’s coronavirus restrictions barring worship services indoors during the coronavirus pandemic. The Sacramento Bee says Friday’s ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals leaves the door open for addressing Gov. Gavin Newsom administration’s limits on church attendance if a California county is in a less-restrictive COVID-19 tier. A three-judge panel ruled against South Bay United Pentecostal Church of Chula Vista over public health orders that restrict religious services from being held inside while virus case rates and hospitalizations remain high. Currently in California, indoor worship services are banned in all purple-tiered counties — those deemed to be at widespread risk of coronavirus transmission. This tier accounts for the vast majority of the state. Just four counties are in less-restrictive tiers. ___ SANTA FE, N.M. -- New Mexico on Saturday reported 859 additional COVID-19 cases and 38 more deaths. That increases the state’s pandemic totals to 168,579 cases and 3,115 deaths. Bernalillo County had the most additional cases with 184, followed by 83 in San Juan County, 74 in Dona Ana County and 53 in McKinley County. Most of the additional deaths involved older New Mexicans, but they also included several people in their 20s and 30s. The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick. ___ RIO DE JANEIRO — The governor of Brazil´s Amazonas state has announced tough new lockdown measures to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases that has overwhelmed local hospitals. Gov. Wilson Lima said Saturday that as of Monday, the state’s 4 million people can only go out for essential activities such as buying food or seeking medical attention. Hospitals in the state capital of Manaus have been strained amid reports that a new variant of the novel coronavirus is more contagious, and the state has seen a shortage of oxygen supplies. The state health secretary says 584 people are on a waiting list for hospital beds, 101 of them requiring intensive therapy. “People need to understand that we have to take tough measures to save as many lives as possible,” Lima said in an announcement posted on social media. ___ HELSINKI — Norway says its capital, Oslo, and nine municipalities have been placed under strict restrictions to contain the spread of the new variant of the coronavirus first detected in Britain. The Norwegian government said shopping centres and other non-essential stores in those regions were closed at noon on Saturday, and would remain shut at least until Jan. 31. In addition, organized sports activities were halted, schools were ordered to rely increasingly on remote teaching and households were requested to not invite visitors home in those specified areas. Norwegian health officials say the Scandinavian country of 5.4 million has so far identified some 55 cases of the virus variant which has spread widely in Britain. Neighbouring Sweden, where the overall pandemic situation is substantially worse than in Norway, said late Saturday that it was planning to launch a temporary entry ban from Norway due to the new mutated form of COVID-19. ___ LAS VEGAS -- Federal prosecutors have charged a Nevada man with fraudulently obtaining about $2 million in federal coronavirus relief aid, meant for small businesses, to buy luxury vehicles and condominiums in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the U.S. attorney’s office in Nevada accused Jorge Abramovs of bank fraud after he allegedly applied for funding to at least seven banks between April and June 2020. The complaint said a financial analysis determined Abramovs spent the money on personal luxury items, including a 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible for more than $260,000 and a 2020 Tesla Model 3 for about $55,000. Abramovs was ordered remanded in custody on Friday during a detention hearing. A defence lawyer assigned to represent Abramovs didn’t immediately respond to an emailed request by The Associated Press for comment. ___ CHICAGO — Restaurants and certain bars across Chicago and suburban Cook County have opened their doors to customers for the first time since late October after winning approval Saturday from Illinois health officials. With the city and county moving up to Tier I of the state’s coronavirus mitigation plan, restaurants and bars that serve food can seat customers indoors at 25% capacity or 25 people per room, whichever is less. Tables will be limited to no more than four people indoors or six people outdoors, and tables must be spaced 6 feet apart. Indoor service will be limited to a maximum of two hours and bars and restaurants must close by 11 p.m. ___ WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden pledged in his inaugural address to level with the American people, and the message from his first three days in office has been nothing if not grim and grimmer. He has painted a bleak picture of the country’s immediate future dealing with the coronavirus, warning Americans that it will take months, not weeks, to reorient a nation facing a historic convergence of crises. The dire language is meant as a call to action, but it is also a deliberate effort to temper expectations. The U.S. is trying to roll out its vaccination program, with issues of slow production and distribution. The U.S. leads the world with 24.8 million confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 415,000 deaths. The Associated Press
