LAS VEGAS, NV (KLAS) – Retired Nevada Army National Guard major general Robert Herbert passed away suddenly Friday, according to the Nevada Army National Guard.

Herbert was 64. The guard's announcement of his death didn't specify how he died.

"Maj. Gen. Herbert was an exceptional soldier, long-time advocate for the Nevada National Guard, and dear," major general Ondra Berry, Nevada adjutant general said.

Nick Diaz returns at UFC 266, still angry and conflicted

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nick Diaz is a 38-year-old mixed martial artist who hasn't competed in nearly seven years and hasn't won a fight in a decade. He is also the biggest star on the card and the most compelling reason to watch UFC 266.

That's not an indictment of Alexander Volkanovski or Valentina Shevchenko, the two accomplished champions making title defenses on the same show. It's also not a critique of the star-deficient state of the UFC, which has crowned no champion lately with the transcendent appeal of retired Ronda Rousey or struggling Conor McGregor.

It's just the reality of Diaz — the charismatic MMA icon who has decided to return to the cage for the first time since January 2015 even though he doesn't want to fight anymore.

At least that's what he claimed in a bizarre interview he gave to ESPN — the UFC's broadcast partner — immediately upon arriving in Las Vegas this week to face Robbie Lawler... Read More

Rebels fall short at No. 22 Fresno State 38-30

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — When the game was on the line, Fresno State kept going to a familiar formula.

Jake Haener threw four TD passes in the second half to Jalen Cropper and No. 22 Fresno State rallied from a 12-point deficit to beat winless UNLV 38-30 on Friday night.

The Bulldogs (4-1, 1-0 Mountain West) started slow in their return to the AP poll for the first time since 2018 before Haener once again took over the game in the second half.

One week after throwing for 455 yards, including a go-ahead TD pass with 14 seconds left to Jalen Cropper, in a 40-37 win at No. 13 UCLA, that combo delivered again with four TDs in the second half.

“I just feel like there’s a lot of trust between me and Jake on and off the field," Cropper said. “I feel like just everything we do from on and off the field to whatever we do in our relationship, I think that ties into what we do on the field.”... Read More
