Midnight Mania! Mayweather-McGregor Press Conference Announced for July 11

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

McGregor-Mayweather is going to have a press conference in just four days, on July 11. The theatrics are going to be insane. Presumably this will kick off the multiple-city world tour, which will also see a stop in London- but not Dublin.

Enjoy the build up. The fight itself is not the point with this one. Tickets will cost as much as 79,000 dollars. I’m not sure I’ve made that much money in my lifetime.

Just Announced. @FloydMayweather vs @TheNotoriousMMA press conference on Tue, Jul 11. Tix avail tomorrow at 12pm. https://t.co/12BeKnX5OA pic.twitter.com/lbD3vYGf7d

Justin Gaethje’s flex to middle finger here is masterful.

That’s pretty great cosplay. Too bad Angela Hill isn’t allowed to do that on stage.

That’s a pretty creative poster by Elias Theodorou. I’m noticing a common theme here with fighter’s creativity in self-promotion being stifled. Blame Reebok? Blame Reebok.

UFC won’t let me come out with my “Breaking Brad” poster, so here’s a post of me just before I walk out for the public weigh-ins! (SAD!) pic.twitter.com/5gTr9x4gva

Daniel Cormier echoes the sentiments of us all, especially after Jones continues to troll him.

Yo @JonnyBones congrats on ur suspension for steroid abuse getting lifted today. Only a few more weeks now, so please no fuck ups. Thanks DC

Diego Sanchez is just as insane as he ever was.

Great quote from Cyborg- “I can take out teeth no problem”

Cyborg says she’d be a veterinarian if she wasn’t a fighter. Her mom wanted her to be a dentist. “Well, I can take out teeth no problem.”

The headliner Saturday night has some interesting statistics. Shevchenko is the best defensive striker at bantamweight, but can she withstand the onslaught of Amanda Nunes this time around? Andrew Richardson breaks down Shevchenko’s game

This Gabi Garcia fight is absurd and shouldn’t be sanctioned, but it’s Japan. The size difference is almost as stark as McGregor vs. Diaz.

The only good option here involves fighting Cyborg… which means there are no good options.

Imagine doing this in a fight with a professional. Bud Crawford is on the boxing pound-for-pound list.
