Midnight Mania! Gunfighting meets MMA  (seriously), Poirier explains Lawler’s ATT exit

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA …

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we’ve got a new wrinkle added to the “mixed” and “martial” in mixed martial arts (MMA) in the form of nothing less than gunfighting, Anderson Silva showing interest in a fighter’s union, Dustin Poirier explaining why Robbie Lawler left American Top Team (ATT), Yoel Romero starting a GoFundMe for Michael Bisping’s medical expenses, Conor McGregor boxing it up in his gym and much, much more.

Insomnia

So, have you seen this new so-called “sport” that combines actual gunfighting with MMA? The guns are modified to shoot training rounds, but are otherwise real. Running out of ammunition is no excuse, because once that happens you are free to engage your opponents in hand-to-hand combat.

New shootout sport combines near real ammo and MMA fighting

Imagine a new sport where gun fighting slams into mixed martial arts. Fighters and opponents shoot at each other with real guns, and when all the ammo is gone, there can be some real fighting. http://bit.ly/2kGOsEk

My dream team for this from professional MMA ranks? Tim Kennedy, Cowboy Cerrone, Jon Jones, Brian Stann, Chad Mendes, Brock Lesnar and probably Jim Miller … who else is into shooting at the high levels of this sport?

Dustin Poirier explains why Robbie Lawler left ATT. According to him, it was based on a misunderstanding:

This isn’t really MMA, but did you see that the “Cash Me Outside Howbow Dah” girl got into a fight that saw her, her mother and the other woman involved kicked off an airline. According to TMZ:

Danielle says the other woman put her hands on her mom’s throat, and that’s why she had to “cold-cock” the impatient passenger.

After Danielle uncorked the punch, the woman made a citizen’s arrest. A short time later police arrived and took all 3 off the plane. We’re told no one wanted to press charges so there were no arrests, and everyone involved decided their lawyers would handle it from here.

I promise to bring you the weird from the world of MMA, and this video below is me fulfilling that promise.

This is more wild, but it’s weird to watch, too:

From Champions.co, Brandon Vera helps a turtle in trouble. My uncle lives in the Philippines, where this scene takes place, and from the times I’ve visited him I can say respect for wildlife is a problem. I may or may not have eaten a sea turtle killed by fishermen during my time there, which I’m told is against international law.

*Disclaimer Cussing and other shit.

Man a huge problem in Tagkawayan, Quezon, and Off the cost of St Rita island……..is that there is “Dynamite Fishing”……

I don’t know if they’re locals of/from other islands/provinces but we should be trying to find out.

No matter how you look at it, whomever they are, are just being fucking lazy…. Alam Ko. Fishing is hard Ass work, but you to say “fuck you mundo” “fuck you to our waters” “fuck you to our environment” fuck you other people”…… man you have nerve. Ma kapal ang mukha mo.

I’d like to request to my fans to spread this and let it be know… this shit needs to end. Punishment should be severe, I’ll dish it out…

Let’s figure something out… I’m no activist, or environmentalist, but This turtle woulda been fucked….

Thank you for helping Nenja…!!! ☺️
