The US government on Friday charged a Russian woman with being part of a Kremlin-backed plot to interfere with next month's midterm elections. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, became the first foreigner to be charged in connection with the upcoming elections, rather than the 2016 presidential race. She was accused of having being, since 2014, the chief accountant for "Project Lakhta", a $35 million operation linked to the St Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, which led Russian social media disruption in 2016. She is accused of conducting "information warfare" against the United States. Khusyaynova continued to file detailed multi-million dollar budgets through 2017, and into 2018, including expenses for placing disruptive adverts on Facebook, promoting social media posts, registering domain names, and paying activists. The operation was said to have been funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin, who is a friend of Vladimir Putin, and t...

Two-weight world champion Alvarez (50-1-2) announced a record-breaking 11-fight deal with DAZN on Wednesday, which is worth a minimum of $365million and is the richest contract in sporting history, and he has given thought to who he might face after his December date with Rocky Fielding, the WBA super middleweight champion. Mayweather is one potential opponent and, although the American has talked up a clash with UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov, Alvarez would encourage the undefeated star to consider a repeat of their 2013 Las Vegas bout.

Khabib Nurmagomedov believes the UFC staged Conor McGregor's attack on his bus that eventually led to the pair meeting in Las Vegas a week ago. The Irishman infamously attacked the Russian's bus back in April, an incident that landed him in court in New York, and sparked a controversial build-up to the clash at UFC 229. Khabib triumphed with a fourth-round submission of The Notorious to retain his UFC lightweight title before causing a melee in the arena after vaulting the cage and attacking a member of McGregor's entourage.

Floyd Mayweather has responded to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s challenge to come out of retirement and fight him by appearing to accept his challenge in order to “Make Las Vegas great again”. The 51-0 boxer was last seen in the ring defeating Conor McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage in August 2017, little more than a year before Khabib inflicted a demolition job on the Irishman to beat him on his return to the UFC earlier this month. After successfully defending his UFC lightweight championship, Khabib has plenty of options on the table with a possible rematch against McGregor, a showdown with former interim champion Tony Ferguson and lucrative moves to Bellator and the WWE all up for grabs.
