Vitor Belfort isnt taking criticisms over his failed drug test personally. In fact, Belfort thinks the comments say more about the critics than anything, especially middleweight contender Luke Rockhold. "I think they are just afraid. I understand," Belfort said on Mondays edition of The MMA Hour. "That playboy is still in shock from the kick. Hes in shock. People are in shock. Thats the word. Lions dont apologize for being lions. I dont. It is what it is." "The kick" Belfort is referring to is a spinning heel kick that left Rockhold dazed and confused on the mat while "The Phenom" finished their 2013 bout with punches halfway through the first round. "When you get knocked out, just shut your mouth, go to the gym and train," he said. "Eighteen years ago, all of these boys were in high school, and right now they think they are going to use me as a ladder? But the ladder is so high, the altitude is so high they cannot breathe. Hey bro, the altitude is too high." Belfort, an admitted testosterone-replacement therapy user in the past, was responding to comments Rockhold made in an interview with Bloody Elbow on Monday. Rockhold believes Belforts conditional license to fight middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 181 is "questionable." Belfort, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, was granted the license for the title fight by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in a hearing last week under the terms that he not fight anywhere until the Dec. 6 event and is subject to random drug tests at any time and at his own expense. "It hurts my heart that guys like Vitor get rewarded for their conscious mistakes, but Karma is going to get him sooner or later. He can only skate by for so long," he said. Rockhold also thinks Belfort "is not going to make the fight." "Hes either going to get off steroids, train and then get injured because hes not on them anymore, get caught for PEDs, or hes going to back out with an "injury," Rockhold said. "One of those things is going to happen." Juan Bernat Jersey . Amare Stoudemire had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Carmelo Anthony scored 21 and the New York Knicks won their eighth straight game, 93-92 over Philadelphia on Friday night, sending the Sixers to their 23rd straight loss.

The two goals brought Huntelaars total for the season to 18, level with Bayern Munichs Mario Gomez for most in the league. Niklas Dorsch Jersey .

NEW YORK -- The train ride back from Philadelphia after the New York Rangers one-goal loss to the Flyers in Game 4 wasnt all that long, yet long enough for them to shake off the disappointment. At least that is what they said the day after. "Its gone now," goalie Henrik Lundqvist proclaimed Saturday of the 2-1 defeat that tied the series 2-2. "On the way home it was disappointing, and you try to learn something and come up with something that will help you moving forward, but then you let it go." The Metropolitan Division rivals will get right back at it Sunday at noon in the pivotal Game 5 at Madison Square Garden, where the clubs split the opening two games. They split again in Philadelphia, and neither team has won two straight. Someone will be facing elimination on Tuesday in Game 6 back in Philadelphia. If the series is stretched to the limit, the deciding game will be Wednesday in New York. "You try not to think too much about the consequences," Lundqvist said. "You just try to focus on your game and what you have to do, and enjoy it, tell yourself that its fun, because it is -- when youre winning." While the Rangers have lost 11 straight games when leading a series, they have come out OK recently in series that were tied 2-2. Four of New Yorks previous five matchups have been squared after four games, but although the Rangers went only 1-3 in those Game 5s they won three of four series. The Rangers have also come out on top in six of the past nine series in which they were tied 2-2, dating to the 1992 Patrick Division semifinals against New Jersey. "Its a pivotal game regardless of the outcome," forward Brian Boyle said. New York was stymied on Friday by Steve Mason, who made 37 saves in his first start in 13 days following what was believed to be a concussion. He played the final 7-plus minutes in relief of Ray Emery in the Rangers Game 3 win before getting the starting nod from coach Craig Berube. It was Masons first NHL playoff victory, and the Rangers expect to test him even more Sunday. "The teams that win Cups are the teams that have that urgency all the time," New York forward Brad Richards said. "Its impossible to have Game 1 like a Game 7. I have never seen it. "I dont think we went out and laid an egg (Friday) ... but we didnt win, so its not goodd enough.dddddddddddd. We get right back (Sunday). We dont have too much time to think about it, so thats good." The Rangers pressured Mason early, and took a brief 1-0 lead in the first period when they held a 16-6 edge in shots. But that was the only scoring for New York, which failed on all four power plays. "We can dissect this all we want," Richards said. "We played a pretty good hockey game. Thats good for us. Our 5-on-5 game is coming, and I thought we controlled a lot of play. There has got to be more. There are 100 ways to lose a hockey game." Richards said the team spent a large portion of Saturday morning before an optional on-ice practice working on ways to improve the power play that went 3-for-12 in the first two games but is 0-for-8 since. He credited the Flyers for making improvements to their penalty-killing and changing things up. "Weve definitely got to get some different things, different looks," Richards said. "They are blocking more shots, their lanes are a lot different. Now its our turn to up that and make them adjust again and try to score a goal." The Flyers will have a new look on defence on Sunday when defenceman Nick Grossmann sits out because of a right knee injury sustained in Game 4. Berube didnt announce who would play in his place, but veteran Hal Gill was alongside defenceman Mark Streit throughout practice Saturday. The 39-year-old Gill played in only six games this season and has yet to appear in this series. "This is what Ive been working to do," said Gill, who has played in 110 career playoff games in 16 NHL seasons. "Ive had it in my head over and over again. It will be nice to have it come to fruition on Sunday. "Weve got a guy banged up. If he cant play, thats what Ive been working for." The team that has scored first in the four games has lost three of them -- only the Rangers in Game 3 bucked the trend. The Flyers came back from an 0-2 deficit to win Game 2, the only time in four tries this season they have won in New York. Philadelphia rallied in the third period to win 11 times during the season. "Its not the ideal situation," Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said. "Ideally, youd like to play with the lead. Its a best-of-three series now, so weve got to make sure were smart and were coming out strong."
