This was an incredible interview by de Randamie where she broke down why she took a long break to become a mother and how it's motivating her to continue he fighting career even as she turns 40 years young later this month. She confirmed that she's mentally ready for her upcoming fight against Norma Dumont and will keep her head held high no matter the outcome.

I love this idea by the UFC to change their ticket policy when it comes to friends and family of fighters at upcoming APEX events. The change is basically reserving four seats for friends and family to watch their fight only. After the fight is over, they will be moved to allow a new group of friends and family to replace them for the next fight. It's a smart way to allow for those closest to fighters to enjoy the bout and then head out to join them faster than having to wait until the end of the entire event.

Reyes has been through a lot these past few years and recently revealed that blood clots forced him to cancel his fight with Carlos Ulberg back at UFC 297. Thankfully, Reyes confirmed via his Instagram that he has a clean bill of health and hopefully, he will return to fighting at some point in 2024.
