After his second power unit problem in as many days, McLaren driver Fernando Alonso hopes the painful issues must be understood so Honda can identify its weaknesses as quickly as possible.An upgraded Honda power unit was fitted to both McLarens this weekend, and while it has run without issue in Jenson Buttons car, Alonso has suffered two failures so far. The first came after three laps in first practice, but was down to a water leak related to the MGU-H and not the updated engine and turbocharger.An all-new power unit was fitted ahead of second practice, but an anomaly was detected during final practice and in qualifying Alonsos outlap lasted just four corners before he pulled over with another problem.It is painful when you have these reliability problems but that is part of our learning process, he said. We need to understand what is too fragile in the power unit, reinforce that part and make sure we have an engine that is capable of fighting for the championshipIf there is one part in the power unit that is not strong enough then we need to reinforce it for next year especially. Lets take the positive side of all these problems and try not to repeat them.Asked if the Honda upgrade offered a boost in performance, Alonso added: I think so. On the dyno it is better and on Jensons side it is delivering the power. On my side too but I had 4 laps today. I will tell you tomorrow when I am fighting side by side with someone.Speaking after his Q1 elimination from qualifying, Alonso did not know the exact problem but said it was likely he would take another new power unit for Sundays race.We need more investigations [to understand the issue], he said. We saw a problem in FP3 and we need time before qualifying to do a proper investigation.In qualifying we only did 500m so it was something really wrong. We have time now to change the PU again, we start last anyway so make sure that tomorrow is better to do a race without any problems Fake Red Wings Jerseys . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle.

Cris Cyborg Justino, the No. 1 female fighter in the world, posted an online video this week that showed her arguing with renowned nutritionist George Lockhart.In the video, Justino is shown questioning Lockharts decision to place her on birth control for the purpose of weight management during her recent camp. The video drew nearly 50,000 views the day it was published.As Justino (16-1) prepares for her second fight in the UFC, a 140-pound catchweight bout against Lina Lansberg at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brazil, much (if not all) of the prefight focus is on her weight -- which has been the case for years.Justino has been a 145-pound champion in multiple promotions, but the UFC does not promote a female weight class above 135. To this point, the highest weight the UFC has been willing to offer Justino is a 140-pound catchweight.According to UFC officials, Justino weighed in, clothed, at 156 pounds on Tuesday morning. Thats over the UFCs recommendation of a check-in weight, which is within 8 percent of contracted weight. The UFC said its monitoring Justinos health as a result. Lockhart assured ESPN.com via text, Everything is where it needs to be.Justino, 31, told ESPN.com the addition of birth control pills made her feel heavier during fight preparations, which has her visibly stressed this week.In my last UFC fight, I had a hard time making 140, Justino said. Then this camp, something different happened. George Lockhart gave me birth control and said it would help me to cut weight. All my camp, I trained really hard. I trained double because I feel my body was different. And then this makes me really nervous. The difference is the birth control.UFC vice president of health and performance Jeff Novitzky told ESPN.com, The health and safety of our athletes comes first and foremost, so our team in Brazil will be monitoring the situation closely and staying in constant communication with Cris and her team.It all begs the question why Justino is fighting at 140 pounds at all. A reasonable answer is the UFC might still hold some desire to book her at 135. For a long time, that was the caveat for a proposed superfight between Justino and former UFC champion Ronda Rousey. The UFC and Rousey repeeatedly said that matchup would have to take place at 135 pounds with a title on the line.ddddddddddddJustino, however, has shut down cutting any lower than 140. Money talks, so you can never completely rule out something in this sport -- but within the last year, Justino has taken a pretty concrete stance against ever fighting at 135.I already said 135 is off the table, Justino said. They know I cannot make 135. Its too hard for me, and everybody who saw me when I cut to 140 knows. Its not healthy. Im not looking to be the champion at 135 -- I just want to make a superfight.Another potential issue, however, is finding a legitimate opponent to fight Justino at 145 pounds. UFC bantamweight Leslie Smith agreed to fight at 140 pounds for Justinos promotional debut in May, and she weighed in only at 139 pounds.Lansberg (6-1) told ESPN.com she has fought the majority of her MMA career at 135 pounds and intends to continue at that weight following this weekend. She believes she was pegged as Justinos opponent because she has fought at higher weights previously during an extended Muay Thai career.I did expect a call from the UFC sooner or later, but I did not expect Cyborg to be the first fight, Lansberg said. I think my Muay Thai career is why they wanted me to fight at 140. Its hard for them to find an opponent for her, and somebody with my background, who has had more than 80 Muay Thai fights, Im a good opponent for her. After this fight, Ill be back at 135.UFC president Dana White recently said the promotion still has no plans in the near future of adding Justinos 145-pound weight class. Justino provided a similar outlook when asked about that possibility, responding, I really dont know.Its a situation the UFC and Justino are hopefully able to resolve, regardless of what happens this weekend. As it stands, booking Justino to non-title, 140-pound catchweight bouts against seemingly inferior opponents isnt taking us anywhere. As nice as it is to simply see her fighting in the UFC, it would be nicer to see her in a narrative that has to do with something other than weight. ' ' '
