community news, Midnight Mania! Watch Dana White meet Conor McGregor for first time

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The first time Conor McGregor met Dana White, it was love at first sight. McGregor had just finished knocking out Marcus Brimage, and you can almost see the dollar signs in Dana’s eyes. Dana immediately offers him fights in Boston and Ireland.

McGregor would go on to defeat tougher and tougher opponents at featherweight, culminating in his 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo. Two fights against Nate Diaz and a historic second belt at lightweight against Eddie Alvarez, and it’s tough to remember a time before Conor McGregor put an entire sport in his shadow. Yet, when Dana first met Conor, he was still on the dole, living on government support to fund his regional MMA career. That first $60,000 “Knockout of the Night” bonus changed his life. “60 G’s baby!”

His next bout, in fact, was against a young Max Holloway, and McGregor made all of $24,000 dollars for that win. That was the last loss on Max Holloway’s record, as he went on to

Now, he finds himself set to make $100 million or more from this fight with Floyd Mayweather. That kind of career requires a step back to appreciate fully.

Did you know Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen are going to fight this weekend? I had forgotten completely

Plain and simply put, Wanderlei Silva hates @ChaelSonnen and is out for blood at #BellatorNYC. More: https://t.co/1CPNoyXTfw pic.twitter.com/BlNqmjeV54

Fedor is fighting Mitrione this weekend, too. How did RIZIN get Ric Flair’s belt?

I wanted McGregor to pull something like this against Mayweather but it seems boxing refs are much quicker to penalize than MMA refs
