Real Madrid says that the club would be happy to host to a McGregor headlined card at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, in Madrid. The club says the event has to be hosted from May to July and that they would require a reasonable timeframe to plan in advance. The club hosted a Bruce Springsteen concert last year.
[We would be] glad if we could make a UFC event; our stadium can hold more than 80,000 fans.
Real Madrid win at the Barnabeau with a 14th minute opening own goal by Marek Suchi, Gareth Bale and Christino Ronaldo’s 30th and 31st minute goals, James Rodriguez in the 36th and the fifth from Karim Benzema. Derlis Gonzalez pulls one back for Basel in the 38th minute.
Athletico win at the Barnabeu through Tiago Mendes and Arda Turan 10th and 76th minute goals. Real show contention through a Christiano Ronaldo penalty at 26 minutes but it’s their only goal. The Real coach is on eight weeks suspension. Simeone:
Arda gave us football. When Turan scored, it was his third opportunity in three minutes. More than there had been in the previous 70. Just like last year’s league meeting at the same ground, he was the game’s outstanding player. The players who had been waiting to come on changed everything.
Hernandez signs to Madrid on a season long loan deal. The Mexican striker has scored 37 premier league goals and won two premier league tittles for Manchester United. Madrid have an option to sign him permanently at the end of the season. His squad number at the new club is 14.
There is no player in the world who can say they wouldn’t like to wear this shirt or be at this club. It would be a big lie. For me it is a dream come true. I’m really happy to be here and I’m going to try and have fun, to help the team and win titles.
