UFC fighter Nick Lentz scored a major victory on Saturday but took the time out during his victory celebration to congratulate Brett Kavanaugh on his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
According to The Daily Caller:
UFC Fighter Nik Lentz took time out of celebrating a victory Saturday night to show support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was confirmed earlier in the day after a contentious political battle.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh,” Lentz said. “Way to go, Special K.”

Lentz had just completed a Las Vegas bout in which he defeated Gray Maynard. The mixed martial artist is reportedly a long-time supporter of President Donald Trump.
It is not clear if Kavanaugh has ever been referred to as “Special K” and if the nickname will stick.
Another fighter speaking after a win during the fight said he spoke to President Trump who encouraged him to knock out his Russian opponent.
