Paige VanZant

In an embarrassing turn of events due to a booking mix-up at the airport, ex-UFC star Paige VanZant accidentally shared the existence of a sex tape she and her husband had made with the airline staff.

Taking to Twitter, ’12 Gauge’ shared that she was flying to Texas when she was asked to prove her identity before boarding. A booking had been made under her professional name VanZant and not her legal name after marriage, Paige Vanderford.

The bare-knuckle boxer had married Bellator star Austin Vanderford in September 2018 and chose to keep her maiden name based on her brand’s popularity with it.

Airport staff asked her to prove her identity in a bid to clear out the confusion of having booked under one name and carrying a passport reflecting another. VanZant’s plan to google her own name in front of the staff backfired when the first search result was an article reporting that she and her husband had made a sex tape.

During a Q&A session on social media earlier this year, VanZant was asked by fans if she and Vanderford would ever make a tape. She revealed that they had already made one before suggesting that she doesn’t intend to sell or share it with her fans.

VanZant also joked that her followers likely started looking for more information on the unreleased tape after reading her initial story. While she hasn’t outright dismissed the possibility of ever making the tape available, she seems content with sharing risqué photos on her members-only subscription site for now.

Do you miss Paige VanZant in the UFC?

Paige VanZant signed with professional wrestling company, AEW (All Elite Wrestling) after losing her first two fights in bare-knuckle boxing. Although she’s just 27 years old and may still have a future in MMA and boxing, she looks set to continue competing in the sports entertainment league rather than combat sports.

After her time in the UFC, she explored different avenues including cornering and broadcasting in the sports world. She also reportedly makes a fortune on her subscription site.

In an interview with ESPN, she shared her ambitions of returning to the cage and competing in BKFC as she praised them for their support during the transition after signing with AEW.

Will we see Paige VanZant return to the cage?

Two rape victims have spoken out about the trouble they faced after encountering MMA fighter Charles Goodwin. Goodwin was convicted of raping two students and sexually assaulting another on Friday, January 22nd.

One of the victims of Goodwin, Sarah, spoke to The Times to recall her encounter with him. Initially, she said she had believed he was a “nice boy” but after what happened she tried to forget about it believing it was a drunken mistake.

Sarah called her sister the following morning after the ordeal and said: “She saw me: I was in a state and confused and trying to come to terms with what had happened. I was in a lot of pain that day.”

Having originally agreed to let it go, Sarah changed her mind when she heard about another victim of Goodwin, a fellow student named Claire. Claire said she was comforted by Goodwin on a night out, and he gave her his coat before pouring her multiple drinks, “to the point where I couldn’t stand without leaning on something” Claire added.

Claire said she didn’t expect this and felt she was safe in a group setting, but after Goodwin managed to isolate her, he repeatedly put his hands down the back of her tracksuit trousers despite being told no.

Both girls had spoken to the university following their ordeals and within a week the police had been called and Goodwin arrested. Claire said: “There wasn’t any communication beforehand of what [we] might like. He just took what he wanted.”

Charles Goodwin Had Previously Been Arrested

Eight months prior to this Goodwin had been arrested for brutally raping and throttling another student but was bailed and then released under investigation without a charge.

Sarah believes the decision to not remand him immediately was a great failing by the Greater Manchester Police

“Why did it take three victims for him to be remanded? Why wasn’t he remanded immediately? I think there are definitely failings in the handling of the Manchester case.”

Claire added: “Why do there have to be more victims for it actually to get to court?”

Goodwin pleaded not guilty which led to both girls having to be interrogated which were not only ‘distressing’ but done in a way to make try and highlight Goodwin favourably.

She added: “It was very distressing. At the break I went into the toilet and just cried. It was just awful. She made me feel like I was in the wrong.”

For Sarah, Goodwin’s barrister argued that she was motivated by jealousy of his girlfriend which she said “I feel like that’s a huge failing [of the system] because that’s something that’s going to stick with me. I’m never going to forget that. “It felt like I was being manipulated by him through the courts. How does that help rape culture in any way to say I was a jealous girl trying to ruin a man’s life?”. (Transcribed by liverpoolecho.co.uk)

Sarah is still coming to terms with everything she went through but has slowly begun to get her life back together having found a boyfriend, but she says it is still affecting her.

“It’s had a massive impact on our relationship, because I had to say to him from the get-go that sometimes when we have sex I might cry, or I might have a panic attack. And it has happened a few times.”

Sarah added she is terrified of getting drunk with people she does not know. She said: “I lost a year of my life when I wasn’t me. I just shut down for a year.”

Goodwin was told by a judge to expect ‘a lengthy period of imprisonment’ and awaits sentencing this month.

Kevin Lee Donald Trump

Kevin Lee has revealed he would like Donald Trump to pick the next opponent he will face in Eagle FC.

Following on from his unanimous decision victory over Diego Sanchez at Eagle FC 46 the former UFC fighter revealed he wants Trump to be involved when it comes to finding him his next challenge. Lee was able to secure the victory over Sanchez despite sustaining damage to his knee that he suffered within the first round.

Lee then caught viewers off guard during his post-fight interview in which he would reveal his interest in having Donald Trump involved.

“I hear Donald Trump is starting to get back into promoting,” Lee stated. “So, it would be fun if he picked the next opponent.”

Trump has had experience within the fight industry previously. The 45th U.S. President owned a large amount of equity stake in Affliction Entertainment who hosted multiple MMA events. Trump himself would appear at some of these events and promote them during the promotion short stay from 2008-2009.

If Lee is correct and Donald Trump is making a return to the MMA world, it will be interesting to see where he ends up at.

Kevin Lee: ‘I’m The Best 165er Out Here’

Kevin Lee was able to secure himself a successful debut victory over Diego Sanchez at Eagle FC 46 despite suffering an injury and it seems this victory has boosted ‘The Motown Phenom’s confidence by some way. Following on from his win Lee used his post-fight interview to stake his claim at a shot for the title.

“There’s no doubt, I’m the best 165er out here,” Lee stated. “The best guy for anyone who wants to weigh 165.” (Transcribed by Middleeasy.com)

Given the birth of the new 165lbs division it may not be long before Kevin Lee obtains the first chance to secure the Eagle FC super lightweight title and deliver on his promise of being the best.

Former US President Donald Trump has claimed that Dana White is simply irreplaceable within the UFC, and he could not see the company’s future without him involved. Trump spoke on an episode of the Full Send Podcast and had this to say.

“I don’t know what would happen to the UFC without him. That’s one man. They say you can always replace somebody. I’m not sure if that man is replaceable.”

No one can argue White helped elevate not only the UFC but the entire sport to help it get to where it stands today. Trump has also had a close relationship to the UFC. Jorge Masvidal joined Donald Trump Jr. during his re-election campaign to promote ‘fighters against socialism’. The former president is known to have a close relationship with Masvidal’s opponent from this last weekend in Colby Covington having shared a picture together inside of the White House. According to reports Trump was supporting Jorge Masvidal heading into last weekends clash at UFC 272.

Donald Trump and Dana White

Donald Trump and Dana White have been acquainted since the now UFC president bought the promotion back with the Fertitta brothers. Trump can often be seen in attendance at UFC events and has offered out his facility at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City

The UFC boss openly supports trump and showed his support for the former president back in 2016 whilst delivering a speech at the Republican National Convention.

“I’ve been in the fight business my whole life. I know fighters. Ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump is a fighter, and I know he’ll fight for this country. Arenas around the world refused to host our events. Nobody took us seriously; nobody except Donald Trump. Donald was the first guy that recognized the potential that we saw in the UFC and encouraged us to build our business.” (Transcribed by Sportskeeda.com)
