Davis is currently serving probation for a 2020 hit and run. Part of the house arrest he served for his sentence was served at Ford’s house.

UFC and PFL veteran Stevie Ray was located on January 2 after being missing for roughly 48 hours (per Daily Record). Ray’s family had appealed online for information on Ray’s whereabouts after they failed to get in touch with him for 12 hours.

Prior to going missing, Ray was last seen driving over Forth bridge in East Scotland at around 5:20 p.m. on New Year’s Day.

Writing on social media, Ray’s sister Kirsty Rae stated, “Thank you to everyone who shared my post and messaged me, my brother has been found safe and well.”

Ray is a near 40 fight pro who fought for the UFC between 2015 and 2019, where he scored memorable wins over Ross Pearson, Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson. He joined the PFL in 2022 and won back-to-back fights against former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. His most recent appearance was a loss to Clay Collard in the PFL 6 regular season.

David Dunne is mourning the death of his prized $2,000 lutino conure parakeet after the bird succumbed to a heart attack in Drimnagh, Dublin last month. Dunne claims the bird died due to stress caused by drilling at a construction project close-by.

That project is an apartment building being constructed by former UFC champion Conor McGregor. Dunne claimed that he had an agreement with McGregor’s company to relocate his birds, but was disappointed when the company only offered to cover price of a van rental and not the cost of housing for the animals.

According to The Sun Dunne isn’t the only Drimnagh resident who is ‘livid’ with the construction project. That outlet claimed a number of residents have lodged objections against the disruptions it has caused.
