Formula One champions Mercedes would be willing to organise a farewell test for Romain Grosjean if the Frenchman, who escaped a fiery crash in Bahrain last week, is unable to return for the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The 34-year-old’s Haas split in half and burst into flames after spearing into the barriers at high speed on the opening lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix. While he walked away from the horrific smash, Grosjean suffered second-degree burns to his hands which have forced him to miss this weekend’s race around the outer layout of the same Sakhir desert track.

Haley Jones had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists to help No. 2 Stanford rout UNLV 101-54 on Saturday. After opening with a 108-40 victory over Cal Poly, the Cardinal have outscored its first two opponents by a combined 115 points. The game was a reunion for Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer and first-year Lady Rebels coach Lindy La Rocque, who played in four Final Fours with the Cardinal from 2009-12 and was an assistant at her alma mater until taking over at UNLV.
But for three errant Reece Hodge kicks, coach Dave Rennie would have been contemplating a very different first season in charge of Australia on Saturday night. If Hodge had converted late penalties in a draw against New Zealand and two against Argentina, the Wallabies would have headed into the off season with the Tri-Nations title and a record of four wins and two losses. Rennie was not about to heap any blame on the shoulders of Hodge, usually only a long-range kicker for club and country, and said all three games should have been put to bed long before the versatile back approached the tee.

UFC Vegas 16 underwent a slew of last-minute cancellations on Saturday just hours prior to the event's start time. COVID-19 was responsible for the cancellation of two bouts, while medical issue nixed a third bout. The UFC Vegas 16 fight card is headlined by a middleweight showdown between Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori. That bout was already a late shift in the program. Hermansson was supposed to have faced Kevin Holland at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, but Holland fell out after testing positive for COVID-19. Less than a week from the fight, UFC officials shifted Vettori from his UFC 256 bout on Dec. 12 into the UFC Vegas 16 main event opposite Hermansson. In a swap of opponents, Holland has been penciled in to face Vettori's UFC 256 opponent, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, on the Dec. 12 fight card. UFC Vegas 16 loses three bouts on fight day Though Friday's weigh-in should have signaled the solidification of the UFC Vegas 16 line-up, there were three fight day casualties. "Due to positive COVID-19 tests, the featherweight bout featuring Nate Landwehr vs. Movsar Evloev and the women’s flyweight bout featuring Montana De La Rosa vs. Taila Santos have been canceled," read a UFC statement sent to MMAWeekly.com. "In addition, due to a non-COVID related medical issue with Cody Durden, his flyweight bout against Jimmy Flick has also been canceled."
