#3. UFC judge Tony Weeks blasted for boxing stoppage
The boxing event that took place on January 6 was terminated in controversy, with many people criticizing the referee, Tony Weeks, for what was allegedly an early stoppage in the main match.
The battle between Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Fredrick Lawson had Weeks, who is also a longtime judge in mixed martial arts and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, receiving a lot of criticism from fans.
Almost immediately after the battle began, Ortiz Jr., who had a perfect record of 19-0, pushed his opponent against the ropes. Weeks made the decision to step in and call the fight, which ultimately resulted in Ortiz Jr. winning the fight in the first round. Lawson did not appear to be in too much difficulty at the time.

#2. Paige VanZant knows who calls her husband at night
The most recent episode of A Kickass Love Story featured a conversation between Paige VanZant and Austin Vanderford about the ways in which envy can manifest itself inside a romantic relationship. A former fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship pondered that the lack of communication is what causes the feeling.
VanZant made the observation that she is well aware of who phones her husband late at night, citing an example from their marriage as an illustration:
When there is a lack of communication and there is a lack of like, there is a lack of general trust, where you don’t trust the person, I believe that this is a major factor that contributes to the beginning of jealousy. If that happens, you are going to start feeling envious. When your phone starts ringing in the middle of the night, it’s almost as if it happened all of a sudden. I’m never inquisitive about who it is since I know exactly who is calling me. Oh, it’s Nick!!

The years that we spent together and her unflinching dedication to our family are two things for which I am extremely grateful. Despite the fact that we are moving forward, my first concern is still the health and happiness of our two lovely children. Without a doubt, they are and will continue to be my top priority.
