ufc fighter known as combat wombat jailed for punching man so hard he needed facial surgery

A UFC fighter known as ‘Combat Wombat’ has been jailed for punching a drunk man in the face outside a Melbourne bar.

Ben Sosoli is a heavyweight fighter who has made YouTube videos on ‘how to knock someone out’.

He assaulted his victim while working at Jackson’s Lounge Bar in Toorak as a responsible service of alcohol officer in September 2019.

The patron had been refused entry because he was too drunk, but snuck in twice anyway.

Sosoli marched him outside and punched him in the jaw when the man tried to free himself.

He had to undergo specialist facial surgery.

Sosoli, 30, has been jailed in Victoria’s County Court for 22 months.

His contract with the UFC has also been cancelled.

Sosoli told police the patron had been ‘threatening to f**k [him] up’ and also said he was jet lagged after returning from the US the day before.

Judge Gavan Meredith on Monday said Sosoli should expect to come across argumentative and aggressive patrons while working at a bar and deal with it appropriately.

‘You are expected not to respond to provocation in the way you did,’ the judge said.

Sosoli pleaded guilty to recklessly causing serious injury.

He must serve 11 months of his sentence before he can be considered for release on parole.

ex tiger air flight attendant melissa nosti from north ryde who had sex with boy is released on bail

A former Tiger Air flight attendant who had sex with a 15-year-old boy has been released on bail after spending only one week in jail. 

Melissa Nosti, from North Ryde in northern Sydney, had sex with a student at the school she used to work at as an attendance officer back in 2010.  

The 33-year-old was last week sentenced to 18 months’ jail with a six month non-parole period after pleading guilty but has since been released on bail.

She appeared at Burwood Local Court via video from Silverwater Women’s cells on Wednesday after her lawyer lodged a bail appeal. 

Her lawyer told the court that Nosti was at ‘low risk’ of reoffending according to a doctor’s report and was successful in gaining employment.  

‘She has had an employment history after this. She was in the airline industry,’ the lawyer said, Daily Telegraph reported.

Magistrate Susan Horan said a victim impact statement from Nosti’s victim was ‘compelling’ before granting her bail.

Her bail conditions including owning one mobile phone and to give the password to police when asked, not allowed to contact the victim, not contact anyone or being the company with anyone who is under the age of 16, and live in her Ryde address. 

Nosti will appear at Sydney’s District Court for an appeal hearing later in the year.

australian mother finds 1 bags of avocadoes in coles supermarket

An Australian mother who discovered bags of avocadoes discounted to $1 in Coles has been hailed the bargain hunter of the century by delighted shoppers.

After spotting the perfectly ripe, cut-price produce, the woman posted a photo in a Facebook budgeting group with the caption: ‘Coles has gone mad – $1 bag.’

The bags were originally $9.90 but have been marked down to 99c for ‘quick sale’, according to the label – that’s a remarkable reduction of 90 percent. 

It’s not clear which store the avocadoes were found in but the mother lives near Hawthorn, six kilometres east of Melbourne CBD.

Her photo has drawn dozens of frenzied responses since it was shared Thursday morning, with many begging to know the supermarket location so they can stock up on their ‘favourite’ fruit for a fraction of the usual cost. 

‘That’s what dreams are made of!’ one woman replied.

‘Oh man…. I love avocadoes. Wish I could bag a bargain like this,’ said a second.

A third added: ‘That’s practically theft!’

And it’s not the only impressive bargain spotted in an Australian supermarket this week.

On Tuesday, a shopper called Jordan picked up $145 worth of meat and pre-packaged meals for just $35 at Woolworths in Rosemeadow, 60 kilometres southwest of Sydney CBD.

He bought 23 packets of food and saved an impressive $109.30 thanks to clearance discounts.

Shoppers have found similar discounts by shopping after 7pm, but Jordan said he scored the budget buys at 5pm.

This haul of what should have been $145 worth of meat and meal packs cost a New South Wales shopper just $35 thanks to 'quick sale' reductions

His ‘quick sale’ purchases included chicken mince, burger patties, pizza, pies, and butter chicken meals with vegetables.

Each packet had been discounted repeatedly in order to sell the food faster, clearing it from shelves to make room for new stock.

The prices of each packet were between $1.10 and $3.25 each, with no meal exceeding $4 due to the looming ‘best before’ date.

Crust Pizza has permanently slashed the price of its most popular premium pizzas after a dramatic spike in orders during the first Covid-19 lockdown.

Australia’s leading pizza chain has lowered the price of eight flavours from its classic and signature ranges to just $11, with traditional best-sellers including pepperoni, Hawaiian, Margherita and Capricciosa among those discounted.

Gourmet toppings have also been reduced, with toppings like prosciutto and rocket, peri peri beef and spinach and feta all marked down to the cost of a lunchtime sandwich.

Classic flavours were previously $15 while signature styles were $19 – that’s savings of $4 or $8 depending on which pizza you order.

The reductions apply to all medium-sized 11-inch pizzas from the classic and signature menus. 

Crust has sold an incredible 5.4million pizzas in the past year, with orders soaring during the first coronavirus lockdown which lasted from March to May across most parts of Australia.  

Head of Retail Jess Buchanan said the price drop was introduced in recognition of the need for more affordability in takeaway food as the country continues through its first recession in three decades.

‘By lowering the price…we can invite more people to experience our premium pizzas,’ Ms Buchanan said.

She called on competitors to follow suit.

‘No longer do Australians have to sacrifice quality and health for cost, and we believe it’s time for other chains to step up to the plate,’ she said.

Since opening its first store in Sydney in 2001, Crust has grown into a network of more than 140 restaurants Australia-wide.

Customers can enjoy pizzas at the reduced price of $11 both dining in and takeaway.
