    Ronda Rousey has been so dominant as a UFC champion that talk now focuses not on how you beat her, but how long you last. Just ask Miesha Tate. “Cupcake” actually made it out of the first round against undefeated “Rowdy” in their second fight at UFC 168 in 2013.

  • Puerto Rico default adds to island's economic woes

    Puerto Rico's default on a debt payment for the first time will leave the island closed out of the US financial markets, deepening what is already a serious economic crisis. Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla paid out just 628,000 dollars of $58 million in Puerto Rico Public Financing Corporation (PFC) debt that came due August 1, pleading a lack of liquidity in the recession-wracked US commonwealth. This month's missed payment is just the tip of a $72 billion dollar mountain of debt that Garcia Padilla has declared to be "unpayable." Debt ratings agencies had already downgraded Puerto Rico bonds to junk status, so what was already a difficult borrowing environment has just been made much worse.

  • Goliath gates: Entrance to famous biblical metropolis uncovered

    A massive gate unearthed in Israel may have marked the entrance to a biblical city that, in its heyday, was the biggest metropolis in the region. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot. The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said Aren Maeir of Bar-Ilan University in Israel, the lead archaeologist on the current excavation.

  • South China Sea tensions flare at Asia security talks

    Southeast Asian diplomats said Tuesday that China's controversial island-building drive is raising regional tensions, with the Philippines slamming its "unilateral and aggressive activities". The US and some Southeast Asian states have watched with growing alarm as Beijing expands tiny reefs in the South China Sea, topping some with military posts to reinforce its disputed claims over the strategic waters and fanning fears of future conflict. The flashpoint issue has taken centre stage at the annual security forum hosted by the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that began Tuesday.

  • Ajax dumped out of Champions League, Monaco through

    Four-time European champions Ajax have been eliminated at the third qualifying round stage of the Champions League after a humiliating 3-2 second-leg defeat to Rapid Vienna on Tuesday as Monaco advanced with a 4-0 win over Swiss side Young Boys. After a 2-2 first-leg draw in the Austrian capital last week, Ajax were strong favourites to progress to the play-off round, but they suffered a torturous night at the Amsterdam Arena. Slovenian international Robert Beric -- the scorer of Rapid's equaliser in the first leg -- tormented Ajax again as he put the Austrian side in front after 12 minutes before Louis Schaub doubled their lead before half-time.

  • Are Katy Perry And John Mayer Back Together Again For The 234th Time?

    Forgive us if you think you’ve heard this one before, but Katy Perry and John Mayer are - you’ve guessed it - back ON. The pair were spotted on holiday in Yellowstone National Park, which isn’t your usual celeb holiday hotspot, and witnesses told The Sun that the on-off-on-off-we’velosttrack couple appeared “head-over-heels” in love. The couple - that’s Katy and John - have been together since 2008, but have broken up more times than we’ve had hot dinners (well, nearly, this is the fourth time they’ve split/reunited and we’ve had at least six hot dinners in that time).

  • Malaysian PM's critics unbowed despite anti-graft agency support

    A senior member of Najib's party also broke ranks over the scandal, suggesting that the prime minister's moves to oust dissenters from positions of power and effectively delay an investigation into the fund had failed to put his government out of danger. On Monday, the Anti-Corruption Commission acknowledged that 2.6 billion ringgit ($675.15 million) was transferred into Najib's private accounts but said the money was a donation, not from 1Malaysia Development Berhad. "Malaysians and the world are watching the country being seized by a madness where the government is warring against itself," said Lim Kit Siang, parliamentary leader from the opposition Democratic Action Party (DAP).

  • World hopes for first clues to MH370 mystery

    Technical experts in France were to begin examining a washed-up plane part on Wednesday that almost certainly belonged to missing flight MH370, raising hopes that some light may finally be shed on one of aviation's darkest mysteries. The Malaysia Airlines jet disappeared on March 8 last year when it inexplicably veered off course en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, and a colossal multinational hunt for the aircraft proved fruitless. The Boeing 777 piece has been taken to the southwestern French city of Toulouse, where it will undergo the high-profile examination.

  • The NBA's all-time starting five: Chicago Bulls

    Joakim Noah may have just given his basketball career to the Chicago Bulls. Despite the minutes restriction placed on him during the 2014-15 season and despite the fact that he came off the bench for half of his first two seasons, Noah basically ran himself ragged as the team’s heart and soul on both sides of the ball for years following his starting turn. With Derrick Rose effectively out for two seasons in 2013 and 2014, Noah ran the Chicago offense from the center position while acting as the lead man on two killer defenses.
