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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we have Nick and Nate Diaz, along with Gilbert Melendez, discussing their vegetarian diet with Anthony Bourdain on his TV show, “Parts Unknown”. Tim Elliot announces he is willing to get crazy in Thailand, Joshua-Klitschko highlights, more knockouts from the weekend, and much, much more.


Nick and Nate Diaz appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s food show, “Parts Unknown”, along with Gilbert Melendez. Bourdain is an avowed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu disciple, training under the Gracies in NYC. They discuss going vegan, their food as children (mostly ramen, hot dogs, and macaroni and cheese), favorite food joints in LA, and Anthony Bourdain discusses his love for In-N-Out Burger.

Wladimir appreciated someone putting him in a firefight for once, even if he didn’t win.

Really enjoyed the fight, I hope you did too. Thank you for your amazing support. I can truly feel it. Respect&congrats to @anthonyfjoshua

Al Iaquinta went full ‘alternate timeline’ this weekend, announcing his fictitious takeover of the UFC and picking a fight with Cub Swanson (and eventually Justin Gaethje, which is actually a fight I want to see)

As new president of the UFC I’m announcing cub Swanson vs me at Nassau colliiseum

Cub Swanson injured! Very unfortunate… We will be reaching out to Justin Gaethje… tremendous fighter!

He is taking cues from the most hilarious Twitter account of all time, Donald Trump.

Is pairing the quote with the picture supposed to be ironic?

Senegalaise wrestling is a crazy sport

Man if a dude is gonna fight you with a cast he is probably crazy. Also, he hit someone so hard with that hand that he broke it.
