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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we’ve got Fedor exploring nature and visiting the Apple store, McGregor revealing some of his… other interests, Shevchenko sporting a “Bullet” outfit, knockouts, breakdowns, podcasts, and much, much more!

Via BloodyElbow.com, we see Fedor arriving in the US and acclimatizing for his upcoming Saturday evening fight with Matt Mitrione. He doesn’t need to cut weight, so he’s just relaxing, enjoying himself, taking pictures in the redwoods.

As the Last Emporer mingles with the shopping mall crowds, one has to wonder if the people milling around him know that this placid-looking bald-headed man is the most revered heavyweight in MMA history. If they have any clue how he destroyed opponents in the ring, going ten years without a loss in the most capricious weight class in the fight game.

Enjoy the heavyweight GOAT relaxing, and then hitting some pads at the end

Conor McGregor is at the pinnacle of the sport:

Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne are the main event of UFC: Halifax. Here’s how they stack up:

Heavyweights always seem to have extreme stats. True for this Sunday’s #ufcHalifax main event.

Felice Herrig looks to have finally gotten the mental aspect of her game together, and the results have been extraordinary so far. It’s clear her anxiety was a big obstacle to her, and it will be interesting to see how far she can go with a steady hand and a clear eye.

Warming up in my locker room for #ufchouston The crazy thing is I use to get so nervous for fights that I didn’t really like to warm up. I also didn’t train with my coaches at all during fight week. I liked to just focus on my weight cut and not think of the fight at all. Now that I’ve gotten my anxiety under control it’s weird for me to go back and think about all the things I did wrong for so many years and wonder how things could have been different . But this is my path. I have always been a fighter. Not just in the cage but in life.

Woodley, who according to Dana White is a drama queen and also not a victim of racism at all, is dragging the UFC for their promo video.

Let me know when you guys do my version of the extended promo and I’ll retweet it. His came out great https://t.co/mIVGv5QI8S

Bas Rutten’s old self defense video is still amazing and hilarious, particularly in light of Chris Weidman’s story below in Quick Hits:
