Since then, not a single murmur or comment has been stated by a UFC official on the possible return of the one-time UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Richard Baldotto.PSC Golf from The Bunker BoysMonday, Feb. 12, Bangpakong – Stableford1st Richard Baldotto (22) 42pts2nd Mike Lloyd ((20) 42pts 3rd Geoff Parker ((15) 41pts4th Keith Norman ((16) 39pts5th Neil Jones ((22) 39ptsNear Pins: Keith Hemmings, Geoff Parker, John Oatway.Twenty-two golfers made their way to the Bangpakong course on Monday, which was in pristine condition.Top of the heap today with forty-two points was Richard Baldotto, looking to make amends for his capitulation in last month’s golfer of the month competition. Mike Lloyd may reasonably have expected to win today but was beaten into second place on count-back. Geoff Parker, starting to show some consistency again, took third with thirty-nine points while Keith Norman was fourth and Neil Jones fifth.Wednesday, Feb. 14, Pleasant Valley & Soi DaoAn unusual day of golf today, eleven of our members stayed on home turf and played the Pleasant Valley course while eight others made their way up to Chantaburi to play the magnificent Soi Dao course.Pleasant Valley was in its usual good condition and the caddies made a special effort to mark Chinese New Year by wearing red and white outfits. The winner on the day with a very good score of thirty-nine points was Ian Rattray, followed in second place by Colin Greig with thirty-seven and a full five strokes back in third was Alan Harris. Near pins went to Ian Rattray, Mike Larsen and two to Alan Harris.At Soi Dao, we played two rounds, a team comp on the first and individual on the second. The individual winner with thirty-six points was Michael Brett followed in second by Keith Norman with thirty-three.The Soi Dao course is quite magnificent, arguably one of the best in Thailand. Every hole was different and challenging, the greens were very fast with subtle undulations and not easy to read and all around the scenery was breathtaking. For anyone in Pattaya who hasn’t yet played this course it’s time to put on your to-do list.Friday, Feb. 16, Pattavia – Stableford1st Richard Baldotto (19) 42pts2nd Les Cobban (10) 40pts3rd Neil Carter (13) 39pts4th Keith Norman (16) 36pts5th Richard Mohns (14) 35ptsNear Pins: Gerry Cooney, Peter Kelly, and Les Cobban (2)/A field of twenty-one played the last round of the week at the Pattavia course. As always the course was in excellent condition and a slight breeze kept play comfortable, however, the speed of play was less than optimal. Despite that the standard of scoring was excellent and a number of very good cards were returned. RRichard Baldotto of the many swings fame has finally hit on one that seems to work consistently and managed to top the list with his second forty-two points for the week. Remarkably for Les Cobban, forty points was only good enough for second place on this difficult course. Third went to Neil Carter on thirty-nine with Keith Norman and Richard Mohns filling the minor places.At the presentation we heard some bad news that one of our members, Eddie Kelly, was struck down with a serious illness while visiting Pattaya and had to be shipped back to the Emerald Isle for treatment. We are advised that he is now on the mend and everyone at the Bunker Boys wishes Eddie a speedy and full recovery, and look forward to seeing him back on the golf course again soon.
PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Has Dennis Rodman, the former NBA star-turned pal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, been benched for Chinese hoop legend Yao Ming?The former Houston Rockets center and eight-time NBA all-star took center court in Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, on Tuesday as Chinese and North Korean basketball players held a friendly match, part of a high-profile sports exchange between the two countries intended to help thaw ties that had been growing chilly over the past year.Senior ruling party officials turned up for the game, but Kim, who was famously serenaded with the birthday song by Rodman in Pyongyang in January 2014, didn’t attend.On the court, Chinese female basketball players who are visiting Pyongyang this week mixed together with North Korean female players to form two teams, called “Friendship” and “Unity.”The Unity team won the match, 107 to 106.Yao Ming, towering over everyone else in the stadium, congratulated the players at the end of the game.“Today’s friendly match will be a display of top basketball skills and the great sportsmanship of all the players from both of our countries,” Kim Il Guk, the North Korean minister of sports, said before the game began.After a period of frosty ties, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has visited China three times this year, and traditional proclamations of friendship between the two neighbors have been resurrected.Speculation continues as to whether Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit North Korea in return.Yao Ming, who at 7′6″ (2.29 meters) was one of the tallest players in the NBA, is the head of China’s Basketball Association.He arrived with a high-level delegation on Monday that includes China’s equivalent of a sports minister.
