Watch UFC star Brandon Royval have disclosed shoulder popped back in as he screams in agony leaving TV viewers grimacing

UFC flyweight Brandon Royval had his shoulder popped back into place by his trainer after a stoppage loss to Brandon Moreno.

The American was finished in the final second of the opening round in his UFC 255 undercard fight.

During the exchanges on the matt, Royval's shoulder popped out leaving him wincing in agony.

The ref then stopped the action as Royval shipped too much punishment but replays revealed him trying to pop his own shoulder into place on the floor.

Afterwards, the 28-year-old was then captured having his shoulder put back back into place by his trainer Marc Montoya.

Fans online were full of praise for Royval – who tried his best somehow pop his shoulder back in and cover up on the floor.

One said: "My guy tried to pop his shoulder back in while eating hammer fists, Royval is different man."

Another said: "Oh man. Royval dislocated his shoulder. Horrible way for this to go."

One added: "Royval was trying to pop his shoulder back into place whilst he was taking shots on the ground, win or lose the kid is a badass."

Monreno, 26, continued his winning streak to go five fights unbeaten and keep his place as the No1 contender.

The Mexican was frustrated not to have challenged champion Deiveson Figueiredo, who topped the bill by facing Alex Perez.

But Monreno is sure to be next in line for the belt following his unorthodox stoppage win.

Man Utd star Brandon Williams admits he was 'jealous' of Mason Greenwood and James Garner in first academy training

BRANDON WILLIAMS has revealed that he was envious of Mason Greenwood and James Garner's ability when he joined Manchester United's training academy.

Williams, 20, thought both players were more talented than him at the time and that he was nowhere near as good.

He was first introduced to them on United's academy training base – The Cliff – when he was seven years old.

The youngster said he had to adapt to being one of the best at school, to being one of the worst at United.

Speaking to Manchester United's website he said: "‘I wasn’t really happy when I went to The Cliff because I was used to being in school and being the best player, but when I went there I wasn’t one of the best players really!

"I was down there in the bottom group.

"Mason’s always been there [as one of the best players]. James Garner, he was up there as well. There are a few players who are not here as well now.

"I was jealous at the time because they were skilful and everything. I think that’s why I went further back, because I was a striker but now I’m a defender."

But he says that is all in the past now and he and the other players are now his good friends.

Reflecting on his time at The Cliff he said: "I went to The Cliff when I was seven and met everyone, some of them are even my closest mates now.

"Some have stayed and some have gone but I’m still really close with them."

His career at Old Trafford has come along way since then and he was a regular starter at the club last season.

But the defender has fallen out of favour at United this season and has been urged to leave on loan by a top football agent.

This argument has been strengthened by the fact that United signed Alex Telles from Porto on transfer deadline day, which further reduces Williams' chances of playing.

He is not short on options if he does decide to leave on loan and has recently been linked with both Southampton and Leeds.

Brandon Lewis self-isolates after covid-19 contact

Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis goes into self-isolation after coming into contact with someone carrying Covid

  • Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis is isolating after exposure to covid-19
  • He told his Twitter followers he had ‘come into contact’ with someone with covid
  • Lewis does not have any symptoms, he was on the Andrew Marr Show Sunday  

Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis is self-isolating after coming into contact with someone carrying Covid-19.

The secretary of state for Northern Ireland and MP for Great Yarmouth, 49, announced the news on Twitter this afternoon.

He tweeted: ‘I have been informed that I have recently come into contact with someone who has since tested positive for coronavirus.

‘While I do not currently have any symptoms, I am now self-isolating in line with Government guidance.’

On Sunday Lewis appeared on BBC One’s Andrew Marr show – which appeared to have been filmed in BBC’s New Broadcasting House, London – although his movements in the days since are unknown.

On the show he defended the government’s decision not to fund temporarily free school meals over school holidays.  

He also said the government had been considering ‘narrowing’ the government guidance surrounding the self-isolation period, potentially cutting it from 14 to 7 days – it currently stands at 14 days.

When questioned why some of the most vulnerable families in Britain are not being supported with £20m a week free meals, Lewis said that £63 million had been given to local authorities ‘because they understand what they need to do to make sure that those most in need can get the help that they need’. 

He added: ‘We all want to see child hunger and child poverty fall.’

Lewis joins a long list of ministers who have spent time in isolation after being exposed to the virus. 

Senior figures to have caught the virus include; Health Secretary Matt Hancock, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chief Adviser to the PM Dominic Cummings.

And almost all of the cabinet have spent time self-isolating due to the virus, including Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Priti Patel, Secretary of State for the Home Department.

Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer and Ben Wallace, Secretary of State for Defence, had shown symptoms but were not tested – to public knowledge. 

MPs to have caught covid include Nadine Dorries, who caught the virus in March, Chris Matheson, a shadow culture minister and MP for the City of Chester, and Bolton Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi who was recently discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for the virus.

Earlier this month MP Margaret Ferrier had the SNP whip withdrawn after travelling from parliament while awaiting the results of a Covid-19 test.

The Rutherglen and Hamilton West MP was stripped of the nationalist party’s whip and faces mounting calls to resign her £80,000-per-year job after an 800-mile round trip between her constituency and London.
