From then on Whittaker battled away on a damaged left knee but through his excellent takedown defence, the Australian kept the fight on the feet and took the final three rounds to set up a unification title fight with Michael Bisping.

Cambridge v Norwich: Predicting the Canaries

  Cambridge v Norwich: Predicting the Canaries Norwich City travel to face Cambridge on Saturday in their fourth pre-season friendly of the summer. The Canaries have won two and drawn one of their first three fixtures, scoring 12 goals in the process. Norwich beat Cobh Ramblers 5-0, Lowestoft Town 5-1 and were held to a 2-2 draw by Stevenage. They now face Cambridge in a friendly that will last 120 minutes, rather than the usual 90. There will be four 30 minute quarters, which Norwich have had now for the third pre-season running. It will be a fantastic chance for Daniel Farke to assess different options and formations in his squad ahead of the new season. James Husband looks set for his first real taste of Norwich action, after a small substitute role against Stevenage. Marcel Franke, however, looks unlikely to get many minutes, if any, after he arrived from Furth earlier today.

In 1968, Romero released the revolutionary horror film Night of the Living Dead. Aside from essentially launching the mega-popular zombie film genre, the black-and-white classic was notable for featuring Duane Jones, a black actor, as the main protagonist of the story.

At the time, it was incredibly uncommon for a black actor to play the hero in U.S. cinema, especially as the lead of an otherwise all-white cast. Romero said at the time that Jones was simply the best choice and actor for the role.

Comedian and director Jordan Peele -- who recently became the first black writer-director to have a debut project break the $100 million (C$126M) mark at the box office with his horror thriller, Get Out -- paid tribute to Romero and his landmark casting choice.

Romero signs new deal at United

  Romero signs new deal at United Manchester United have today confirmed that goalkeeper Sergio Romero has signed a new contract with the club. Twitter: That feeling when you sign a new #MUFC contract – well deserved, Sergio! https://t.co/TdHSgwDYv2 https://t.co/95AbBD6lSD (@ManUtd) Romero has enjoyed a successful spell with the Red Devils since his move from Sampdoria, despite playing as a backup. Jose Mourinho regards Romero as an understudy to David De Gea in terms of his goalkeeping options, but has chosen to utilise the Argentine on many occasions. The experienced shot stopper has established himself as his country’s first choice goalkeeper under Jorge Sampaoli and will be keen to continue impressing in the 2017/18 campaign when he gets the chance. Romero made 28 appearances for United last term, with just six of them coming as starts in the Premier League.

On Sunday, horror movie icon George A. Romero died after a battle with lung cancer, surrounded by his family.

"Romero started it," Peele tweeted, alongside a photo of Jones from Night of the Living Dead. 

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took to Facebook to share a lengthy message thanking Romero for creating films that changed the way Gunn thought of movies and Hollywood when he was young.

"Seeing Night of the Living Dead as a child not only scared the living hell out of me, and made me forever jump at creepy children, but it was so incredibly DIY I realized movies were not something that belonged solely to the elites with multiple millions of dollars but could also be created by US, the people who simply loved them, who lived in Missouri, as I did, or Pennsylvania, as you did, or anywhere," Gunn wrote.

"I picked up an eight millimeter camera, mixed some Karo syrup with some red food dye to make blood, and began making movies - specifically, having my one brother eat my other brother onscreen, alive. I was eleven. That was the first moment of my film career, and it was spurned on because of you," he added. "Thank you, George, for being a part of my life for a long, long time, in so many different ways. Rest in Peace."

Legendary director of 'Night of the Living Dead' George Romero dies aged 77

  Legendary director of 'Night of the Living Dead' George Romero dies aged 77 George Romero, also know as the Zombie Master, has passed away at the age of 77, his family have said. Romero was well known for his classic 'Night of the Living Dead'. The noted director died after a battle with lung cancer; the family said he died while listening to the soundtrack for 'The Quiet Man'. Horror director, Eli Roth, said: "Hard to quantify how much he inspired me & what he did for cinema. Condolences to his family." Then adding: "Romero used genre to confront racism 50 years ago. He always had diverse casts, with Duane Jones as the heroic star of NOTLD." Roth was not the only horror notable to voice his grief at Romero's passing. King of horror, Stephen King wrote: "Sad to hear my favourite collaborator and good old friend, George Romero has died. George, there will never be another like you." Night of the Living Dead, along with being a classic film, reinvented the zombie genre, handing down rules about the undead that would stick for decades. Romero was born in New York City in 1940, growing up in the Bronx. He later graduated from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University. After 'Night of the Living Dead' came 'Dawn of the Dead' and several other zombie films Romero made. Speaking to the Associated Press nearly a decade ago, Romero spoke of why he loved the genre: "The zombies, they could be anything," he said "They could be an avalanche, they could be a hurricane. It's a disaster out there. The stories are about how people fail to respond in the proper way. They fail to address it. They keep trying to stick where they are, instead of recognizing maybe this is too big for us to try to maintain. That's the part of it that I've always enjoyed.
