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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we’ve got Mayweather putting the kabosh on McGregor rumors, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) deciding coaches need to pafight film to study, Khabib playing pranks, Carla Esparza no longer able to use her walkout song, men fighting bears, and much more.

Insomnia

Floyd Mayweather wants to cool the swirling rumors about that fight with Conor McGregor. However, the “at this time” certainly leaves the door open to future announcements. The desire to control the narrative is common to savvy promoters, so this probably means little.

With McGregor taking care of his fine with Nevada State Athletic Commission, theoretically, hurdles are being taken out of the way for this bout. As ridiculous as it is, it may actually happen.

Now this would be truly fun:

I’m still on board with McGregor vs. Golovkin.

I should actually cite the time Golovkin crumpled an actual Irish fighter. pic.twitter.com/KuKKS61Tbo

Bobs and Weaves

Well, this seems cheap and counterproductive. From the striking coach of Donald Cerrone, Jon Jones and several other top fighters at Jackson-Winklejohn’s gym at Albuquerque, we get word that UFC won’t be supplying fight film for coaches to study:

I just got an email from the UFC saying that fight tape will no longer be available to coaches and fighters and I need to use Fight Pass.

In the past we’d get zip drive links to download. No Fight Pass subscription is offered to the camps, we need to purchase it on our own.

I already have a Fight Pass subscription, the problem is that Fight Pass isn’t a good way to study. No slow mode, its a pain to rewind, etc

That Khabib. Always so mischievous. And frightening.

The main event at UFC: Halifax should be fun. I hope so, anyway, since I’m going to be recapping it this Sunday. There is a high percentage chance my work won’t run late:

Kelvin Gastelum is looking jacked ahead of his Middleweight match up with Vitor Belfort in two weeks.

This sucks … and probably has to do with Metallica being possessive with the copyrights.

Just told by the UFC that legally I cannot use @Metallica as my walkout anymore.I’ve been using them since my 1st fight. #harvesterofsorrow

From Mike Jackson’s website, mikethetruth.com (the same guy who fought Mickey Gall, called out CM Punk, and, incidentally, who gave me the chance to cut my teeth writing about MMA) found this video of Tom Brady’s wife, Giselle, hitting pads and looking pretty good all told:

Read about the time combat training paid off for another supermodel, Gigi Hadid.

This threw me off:

It’s Valentines Day

St. Valentine would probably be less than impressed with how his holiday turned out — the dude was martyred for trying to convert the Emperor. The name Valentine means “strong” in Latin. None of that matters — he now is synonymous with the cheesiest, sappiest holiday of the year.

The ring card girls hope your day was a happy one, anyway.
