Midnight Mania! Daniel Cormier forces Rumble to stand during interview

, / 30 0

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we’ve got Daniel Cormier getting petty with Anthony Johnson, one last Fedor vs. Mitrione preview, Jorge Masvidal highlighting his backyard brawler days, regional MMA highlights including LFA4, and much more.


Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson are gearing up to rematch at UFC 210. Given Johnson’s power, this is always a high-risk fight for DC, but he hasn’t let that get to him. Clearly.

During our last interview I decided @anthony_rumble didn’t get a chair. He needed to stand. I’m the champ I make the rules lol. @ufc 210 tickets going fast get em now. #buffalo #andstill

Fedor is a candidate for GOAT status. Tomorrow night will show us if he can still pull out a good performance against a quality opponent.

Sooo ready for tomorrow!! Catch the #Fedor Emelianenko fight @mattmitrione in the #Bellator172 main event, live & free on @spike 9/8c!

That Bellator hype is perhaps the reason for this:

Jorge Masvidal reminds us how he got his nickname.

How many of your fav fighters ever make this walk? #realisback #easymoney old me vs new me #watchthewholevid

Angela Hill may have a point. She gave Andrade a much harder fight than Penne or Calderwood, and she isn’t in the rankings. These rankings don’t mean that much, though, given that Valerie Letourneau isn’t even in the UFC any more.

Grasso is ranked after losing?! I’m trying to be part of the #PrettyGirlWeight where they ignore facts and base rankings on selfie likes.

Two of the greatest boxers and self-promoters in history. Vastly disparate historical context and impact aside, which is better pound for pound?

KRYLOV TOO?? What is the UFC doing exactly cutting all these talented young fighters?

Luke Thomas weighs in on Cyborg’s situation

Why Edmond Tarverdyan isn’t in Travis Browne’s corner:

Quick Hits

  • MVP’s actual next opponent has been revealed
  • Cyborg has been exonerated with a Retroactive Therapeutic Use Exemption. All is forgiven, all is good. Nothing to see here, moving on.

Turns out USADA specifically hold UFC athletes to much less strict standards than other athletes for retroactive TUEs.

Very interesting.

  • Oh, yeah, this little detail. GSP is officially coming back.
