Midnight Mania! Nate Diaz training with Amir Khan, Korean Zombie return inspired by Dominick Cruz

41 0

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we’ve got lots of things. All of the things. Dominick Cruz inspiring Chan Sung Jung’s comeback, Nate Diaz working on his boxing with the best, some alternative Holly Holm facts, Yoel Romero calling himself a tsunami on the MMA Hour, and much more.


The Korean Zombie was inspired by Dominick Cruz’s legendary comeback? It makes sense- hurdles like ring rust are largely psychological.

@DominickCruz The things that you said in your press conference about ring rust really inspired me. Thank you!

Look at Nate Diaz out here. LOL’ing at fight offers and sharpening up his boxing with Amir Khan.

Great to have former UFC champ @NateDiaz209 train at our boxing club in SF. Keep up the good work pic.twitter.com/7Wjl4aVIke

UFC 208 is coming up, and it’s a good fight card, even if the inaugural women’s featherweight belt as a headliner seems contrived.

Holly Holm has lost two straight and gets a title shot based on name value, against Muay Thai legend Germane De Randamie, whose selection also makes little sense:

Also, this stat doesn’t seem right.

This sounds fucking ludicrous and I cannot imagine that it’s even close to true. pic.twitter.com/ps86adBT3k

Tony Ferguson going after McGregor on social media, and while McNuggets is… not a good insult… at least Ferguson is playing up his “El Cucuy” nickname.

Speaking of dancing, Tonya Evinger is not a good influence on UFC champion Amanda Nunes:

Still probably the most terrifying KO I have seen, pretty sure Gono was dead there for a moment pic.twitter.com/u1Zen0Cmrg

This is a problem I face on a weekly basis:

Listen to the MMA Hour under “podcasts” to hear Yoel Romero’s descriptions of himself and Michael Bisping on a beach.

“Have you seen the face of a person on the beach and a giant tsunami comes? It’s the same expression Bipsing had when I KO Chris.” – Romero
