community news, Midnight Mania! Mayweather promoting Soulja Boy vs. Chris Brown PPV, Jon Jones vs Dillon Danis rumors

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Wherein we have celebrities Chris Brown and Soulja Boy apparently setting up a celebrity boxing match, McGregor’s grappling coach gunning for a match-up with Jon Jones, Michelle Waterson poking good fun at her mom, Herb Dean shutting down critics, and more.

Being famous for other things and deciding to fight is something that has a definite market, even when the participants are terrible at fighting.

…Which is a good thing for Soulja Boy.

You know how Amanda Nunes pasted Ronda Rousey? She would do the same to Soulja Boy, judging only by this clip and inferring from it the sum total of his fighting ability. My girlfriend’s take? “He isn’t good at rapping, and that’s his occupation. Why would you expect him to be good at fighting?”

Bosslogic went and made a MUCH better poster, as he does

Many requested it, I’d watch for sure 😀 @FloydMayweather @chrisbrown X @souljaboy pic.twitter.com/GY891PIXav

Soulja Boy is the one doing the most promoting on social media, but judging from this caption Chris Brown is completely down to fight him. Or, to be more precise, box him.

@adamscherr99 @wweaallday21 @spifftv it’s been amazing to see how many people tune in to negativity. NOW THAT WE HAVE YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION…. BOXING MATCH SET. Legally. Man to Man. NO MORE DISSING AND NO MORE BULLSHIT. ME AS A BLACK MAN, looked back at my actions on social media and what I though of myself is this… “CLOWN”. SO THIS ISNT AN APOLOGY. IM TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY IGNORANCE. @adrienbroner @floydmayweather @50cent WE IN THE RING WIT IT. TAKE YA BETS NOW. #CELEBRITYBOXING CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. #stayclassy #OHBSPORTS @twincharlo @futureofboxing

Soulja Boy is going to need all of the training Mayweather can give him.

I can only take that about as seriously as I take this:

At least he has a better coach than Ronda Rousey:

This man shouldn’t be coaching anyone at a high level, much less Rousey.

Back to MMA

Isolating precisely what happens in these moments is so difficult in the chaos of a fight even on video.

Here’s the best evidence I’ve seen that the cut over Dominick Cruz’s eye came from a Cody Garbrandt head kick: https://t.co/RfglTyJWup

Herb Dean has a response for Michael Rappaport’s idiotic comments:

Lorenz Larkin is a free agent, but rumor has it Bellator isn’t interested. All respect to Bader, but I would much rather watch Larkin violence:

Submissions are great too though, especially in sloppy, everyone-is-gassed funfests.

I live in Houston, so seeing my local radio station morning show post about Alexa Grasso was jarring.

Good luck to our new favorite fighter, Alexa Grasso! She’s fighting Saturday night Feb. 4th! @alexa_grasso

All Moms are the same:

Driving in the car with #masteryaiyai I know you all have stories about those backseat drivers love you mom jup jup

A video posted by Michelle Waterson (@karatehottiemma) on Jan 4, 2017 at 3:35pm PST

So Michelle Waterson is not only a top ten strawweight following her win over Paige VanZant, but also incredibly funny.

Impressive.

This wrestling looks like a work… but it’s mostly just bizarre to watch.

Wrestling Wednesday!!! ‍♂️ Give them a reason to remember your name. #wrestling #jwmma

Speaking of the grappling arts, who wouldn’t watch this? McGregor’s grappling coach and world champion Dillon Danis vs Jon “Bones” Jones? (Watch Jones submit Dan Henderson here)

Here is a mock up of @dillondanis X @JonnyBones fight poster pic.twitter.com/HHsApcbPN1

Danis came to MMA fan’s attention after joining McGregor’s team after his submission loss at UFC 196 to Nate Diaz

late night work with my brother @thenotoriousmma no one is working harder then us 15 more days till war #ufc202

It would be a very interesting matchup, even if Jon Jones doesn’t want to face high level black belts just yet…

Absolutely just looking for a reasonable match up. No need fighting high level black belts just yet. https://t.co/VR8wDNm7E3

Podcasts

Snoop Dogg interviews Nick Diaz! The pair have been tight for a minute now, and Snoop Dogg is a frequent fan of MMA and the best possible person to replace Mike Goldberg as the play-by-play guy.

Opinionated MMA reporters Helwani, Thomas, and Snowden joined for a podcast discussing, who else, Ronda Rousey.

The Fights Gone By podcast by Jack Slack is back!

Wendy’s just. won’t. stop.

Perhaps this man should consider a different gig:
