This past weekend the UFC 229 took place where Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov fought each other. There was controversy regarding that fight as Khabib got into trouble for starting a fight with McGregor’s people after the fight had completed.
Shortly after, fighter Nik Lentz won a fight of his own where he made headlines and controversy regarding his comments on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Red State Observers reported,
“UFC Star Nik Lentz gives a shoutout to Brett Kavanaugh after his win at UFC 229.”
Fox News reported,
“Shortly after winning his UFC 229 match Saturday night, fighter Nik Lentz gave his “homie Brett Kavanaugh” a shout out for being sworn in as a Supreme Court justice.
Lentz defeated Gray Maynard in a second-round TKO in Las Vegas on Saturday. During his post-victory interview, Lentz took the first few moments to congratulate Kavanaugh, who was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday hours after the Senate voted to approve him.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh,” Lentz said. “Way to go, Special K.” He laughs after the comment and went on to answer Joe Rogan’s question. Lentz’s shout out to the new Supreme Court justice received jeers and some applause from audience members at T-Mobile Arena.
Kavanaugh was sworn in as a judge to the nation’s highest court after a contentious confirmation battle. Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by three women that nearly derailed his nomination. The accusations led to a second hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and a weeklong FBI probe.
“The Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight took to the microphone Saturday at UFC 229 after defeating Gray Maynard. Amid laughter, he proclaimed his support for Kavanaugh, who was controversially confirmed into the U.S. Supreme Court hours earlier amid protests and lingering accusations of sexual assault. Lentz gave a “shoutout” to the 53-year-old judge after the Las Vegas TKO win over Maynard as he spoke to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
Rogan approached Lentz to conduct a post-fight interview when the Minnesota-based lightweight fighter aired his political views. “Alright I’m here with the winner Nik Lentz, first of all Nik congratulations on a victory over a real veteran in Gray Maynard. I think this fight really highlighted the improvement and development you’re striking,” said Rogan.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh, way to go special K,” the fighter says to Rogan and the camera with a thumbs-up sign and a smile. “And on top of that,” Lentz says, choking off laughter, “…I’m a new fighter.”
Lentz’s odd shoutout to Kavanaugh was followed up by hundreds of “MAGA” comments on his socia media pages expressing their happiness Lentz backed President Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominee. Several commenters note “Special K” is slang for ketamine or a recreational anesthetic.
“You are my new favorite fighter!!! We all loved you giving a shout out to Justice Kavanaugh!!!!! #maga__” reads one of the fighter’s top Instagram comments. During a post-fight interview with other reporters outside the event, Lentz explained how both he and Conor McGregor have blended entertainment and fighting to get to the top of the sport.
“When I first came into fighting I had an idea of how to get to the top and that idea was, if I worked hard and I beat people up and I kept winning I would get to the top,” said Lentz. “You have to be the complete package.
You have to be good on the mic, you have to be good in the fights, you have to produce entertaining fights. You have to have a mindset and an approach to fighting that is an entertaining idea. Fighting is an entertainment sport. Anybody who says that it’s a regular old sport like football or something where they just care if you win, is a fool.””
Lentz is 34 years old and originally from Minnesota. In the UFC he was a Featherweight from 2012 to 2015 and a Lightweight from 2005 to 2012 and from 2015 until now. As a wrestler, he worked with the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy and the American Top Team where he ranked as a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has been wrestling in the NCAA Division I since he started in 2005.
Aside from his Justice Kavanaugh comments, he faced former title challenger the same night, Gray Maynard whom he beat in a TKO in the second round. He dropped his opponent Maynard with a head kick and punches that followed up. Something that was unexpected.

Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.
Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
‘First Man’ Crashes In The Box Office Following Flag Controversy
Hollywood never seems to learn. It is not smart to piss off the American people. Leftists are always wanting to rewrite history. No more supporting these types of movies.
Let them fail. They don’t deserve your money. The left hates America. It continues to show every day.
By the way, Ryan Gosling.. It was an American achievement.
From The Daily Wire:
“First Man,” the Neil Armstrong biopic about the 1969 moon landing, failed to blast off in the box office weekend following a heated controversy over director Damien Chazelle’s decision to omit the astronaut’s planting of the American flag on the lunar surface.
“The visceral historical drama got grounded in its domestic debut with $16.5 million, despite positive reviews,” The Hollywood Reporter reports. Internationally, “First Man” performed even worse, earning just $8.6 million in 22 markets. With a production price tag of $70 million plus another $50 to $100 million in marketing costs, the film could be a major loss for Universal Pictures.
Despite the poor numbers, Universal has expressed confidence the film will perform well over time after getting major boosts this coming awards season, during which it is expected to be nominated for various top prizes.
“Our core audience, adult males, don’t necessarily run out on opening weekend,” says Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution. “We’ll have a great run for weeks and months to come.”
Though critics have heaped praise upon the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 88%, audiences have been less enthusiastic. It holds just a 7.7 rating on IMDB with a B+ audience rating on CinemaScore. On Rotten Tomatoes, the audience rating was even worse at just 60%.
In fairness to Orr, his projection that “First Man” could pull in big numbers over time is not without precedent. Both “Bridge of Spies” and “Argo” debuted to dismal box office receipts but went on to gross well past the $150 million mark during awards season. The big BUT to that, however, is that none of those films were dogged by the same controversy “First Man” stepped into the moment its star Ryan Gosling said the American flag planting was intentionally omitted.
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling said of the decision.
After hearing of this, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, blasted the film, prompting a fierce backlash. Since no evidence currently exists that the controversy is spurring the bad performance, time will tell if the critical success of “First Man” will propel it to financial success.”
