Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
RIZIN’s head, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, has confirmed that Tenshin Nasukawa’s fight with Mayweather is back on for New Year’s Eve.
Misunderstanding with Floyd Mayweather was settled. He confronts Nasukawa Tenshin in the RIZIN.14 ring on New Year ‘s Eve on December 31. I will speak to you at the press conference when I return to Japan. #rizinff
Head of Rizin says the Floyd drama was “misunderstanding” and that the “fight” (my quotes) versus Nasukawa on 12/31 is back on after all. https://t.co/gVhjHH6sD2

Floyd made sure everyone knew that the fight was purely a boxing exhibition match- no kicks allowed.
“We’re gonna make it happen. Rules? It’s gonna be a little boxing exhibition. No kicking. I’m moving around with the guy for 9 minutes, and of course it’s gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever.” #RIZIN14 pic.twitter.com/fZjaN7RWGI

We will see if Tenshin, who is not known for his restraint in the ring, will just be “moving around” with Floyd on December 31st.
Speaking of notable kickboxers, Nieky Holzken vs. Cosmo Alexandre is going to be hot fire- especially in four-ounce gloves!

“He’s going to kill me for forgetting his last name” but what about his first name?
Cody McKenzie is one of a kind.
Cody McKenzie’s legacy for MMA is
1. Drawing his own blood to make weight in Oklahoma
2. Fighting in the UFC with shorts with a tag still attached
3. Submitting an overheated fake urine sample to the NAC
His contribution to the sport is surpassed by few.

Bob Ross wants to cut another ten pounds to fight Artem Lobov and I kept thinking… how??
Sean O’Malley got a six-month suspension from the NSAC, but has yet to appear before USADA.
.08 nanograms and they pulled me off the biggest card, suspended me and fined me . 1 Nanogram is exactly 0.000000000001 kilograms. For everyone who thinks I am stupid enough to take a banned substance before the biggest fight of my career, .Thanks to the fans that support me❤️

A lot of leverage on this choke
This is slickness

This is me. Especially in jiu-jitsu- I don’t have time for all that. I came to drill and roll.
I want to pass up on including these McDojo videos… but they are always so good, the technique in them so deadly.
