Fernando Alonso says a stress moment at McLaren caused the tyre mix-up which ultimately led to him qualifying 14th on the grid for Sundays Austrian Grand Prix. Cheap Nike Shoes Authentic .Both McLarens made it into Q2, with Jenson Button going on to record his first Q3 appearance since the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as he qualified fifth -- the highest position a McLaren driver has achieved since the team returned to Honda power in 2015.Alonso meanwhile was left to rue a mistake which meant he was unable to challenge for a place in the final part of qualifying.We had the threat of rain so we tried to do a quick run in Q2. Unfortunately when we took the blankets off the tyres were not the new tyres, it was the old tyres from Q1, Alonso explained. That was a surprise for the whole team and then when we put the new tyres on we had some yellow flags and we aborted the lap, so it was not a smooth qualifying.We were in a hurry from Q1 and it was a stress moment with the rain threat. It is some races now that we are doing the small mistakes, we are not in a position -- lets say we are not very competitive -- so if we dont execute the races well it becomes even more difficult. The race is tomorrow and hopefully we can recover.Button will start third after gearbox penalties for both Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg are applied. Alonso says he feels confident that he would have been able to join his teammate in Q3 had the error not occurred.I think so. Obviously it was tough but with Perez out, Sainz out, we have to beat only the two Haas [drivers], so I think it was very possible but we didnt execute qualifying good enough.Definitely we need some mixed conditions if we want to recover from P14 so lets wait and see.

The welterweight fight headlined UFC Fight Night at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.Maia, 38, is in the midst of an incredible run. According to FightMetric, he has absorbed just 13 strikes in his last four fights combined. None of those bouts was more impressive than Saturdays showdown against Condit, a two-time title challenger and former interim titlist.This guy has been knocking out everybody, Maia said. This is the guy, I watched his [championship] fight against Robbie Lawler [in January] -- for me, he was the champion. To come here and put in my work, with all the respect I have for him -- I knew it would be a hard fight. Im just so happy, and I think Ive earned a title shot now.A Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, Maia has 12 submission wins in his career, including seven via rear-naked choke. A former middleweight title contender, he is 8-2 since dropping to the welterweight division.Condit (30-10), who fights out of Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, came out in a low stance in an effort to defend the takedown, but it did not make a difference.

Despite being hurt on the feet at times, Oliveira did take Pettis back several times in the first two rounds.Fighting out of Milwaukee, Pettis snapped a three-fight skid that began with a unanimous decision loss to Rafael dos Anjos in a lightweight championship fight in March 2015.VanZant records highlight-reel knockoutStrawweight Paige VanZant (7-2) scored an electrifying knockout over Bec Rawlings (7-5) at 17 seconds of Round 2, dropping Rawlings with a jump switch kick.VanZant, 22, sat out the first half of 2016 to appear on ABCs Dancing with the Stars, but looked comfortable in her return fight. She circled away from Rawlings for much of the opening round and took the worst of early exchanges, but was never hurt. VanZants outside movement forced Rawlings to pursue, and VanZant caught her by surprise early in the second round with the kick.Apparently, I needed a little of that dance movement, said VanZant, who has been known more for grappling skills than knockout power.Fighting out of Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, VanZant suffered the first loss of her UFC career in late 2015, which snapped a four-fight win streak.Miller takes split decision from LauzonLightweight Jim Miller (27-8) edged Joe Lauzon (26-12) via split decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29) in a rematch of a 2012 barn burner.
