The final season of Game of Thrones was met with some harsh criticism, but Kit Harrington doesn’t want to hear any of the noise. Following the series finale, the Jon Snow actor discussed the show and all of the critics who have been sharing their thoughts on the final six episodes.

Former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi and UFC veteran Artem Lobox are set to face off in the main event of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6 on June 22 at Florida State Fairgrounds Entertainment Hall in Tampa, Florida. The two men share plenty of bad blood stemming from Malignaggi’s time as a sparring partner of Conor McGregor ahead of the blockbuster Floyd Mayweather fight.
