Midnight Mania! Wilder Has ‘Proof’ Fury Never Beat The Count

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

In an all-time classic heavyweight bout last weekend, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury went the distance- but only after Fury got up from one of the most hellacious knockdowns you’ve ever seen, from the sports’ hardest puncher, as if from the dead. It was an astonishing moment, one that surprised Wilder as much as any of us, judging by his reaction. The fight went on to be scored a split draw, leaving most viewers thinking Fury had been robbed of a win, as many believe he won every round except the two that Wilder knocked him down in.

However, Wilder’s fans don’t concur, and in fact, Wilder himself believes that he won. In support of this belief, he tweeted ‘proof’ Fury didn’t really make the count, using a timer to clock ten seconds, and claiming that Fury didn’t make the count.

Ultimately, Wilder said in interview that he’s glad that Fury did recover, as he doesn’t believe he would have gotten credit for the win given Fury’s backstory leading up to the bout. He probably also is seeing the opportunity to make money in a rematch, as their fight apparently did quite well even just with the US Pay-Per-View numbers.

There is a certain irony in Wilder making the factually incorrect claim that he ‘won’ a split draw most observers believe he should have lost, then using the phrase “blind MFs that can’t face reality”. According to former top MMA referee Big John McCarthy, the ten-count is just that: a count by the referee, not a ten-second interval of time.

Odds for the rematch between Wilder and Fury opened dead even.


Insomnia

Robert Whittaker is one of the nicest, most genuine guys in the sport- but he doesn’t think switching opponents at the last second from Gastelum to Adesanya would be right.

Adesanya has first-meeting stories with both main event fighters- even if Gastelum doesn’t remember meeting him a buffet, that’s too perfect.

The Last Stylebender strikes a pose between the champion and challenger.

If you can dish it, you better be able to take it.

You have to turn sound on for this one…

Super Sodiq Yusuff was an inspiring but sad story this weekend, crying on the treadmill over losing his brother but still going out and handling his business in his UFC debut.

Efficient.

This boxer, Dereck Chisora, said he was going to go through his opponent Dillion Whyte like a laxative, and I think it’s the funniest line of trash talk I’ve ever heard.

The Fight to Save Flyweight: Joseph Benavidez vs. Deiveson Figueiredo. Seriously, these two in the cage might just convince everyone flyweight is worth keeping.

Tenshin Nasukawa sparring Jorge Linares? I want to see the footage even more than the full Dillashaw-Lomachenko sparring video.

How exactly was this supposed to work?

I didn’t know turtles could wrestle but it doesn’t look like you want to mess with them in their native element, the water:

Part 4(?) of my Weird Pistol Tour: the rocket pistol. The Gyrojet was a government project in the 1960s that ended up getting terminated but not before they made tiny rocket bullets that fire out of specialized rifles and pistols. Read about it here, or just watch someone donate their irreplacable ammunition to blow a GoPro off a dummy and hit a watermelon:

But Really, Can Conor McGregor Beat Khabib Nurmagomedov?

I’m just going to keep asking if Conor McGregor can beat Khabib Nurmagomedov over and over again until they fight at UFC 229. Why? Because if the UFC is going to milk their golden calf for pay-per-view riches, I can at least squeeze out some web traffic!

Obviously, McGregor can beat Khabib. Heck, he might even knock the Dagestani wrestler out, snatching away that lightweight belt. Remember what happened when the Irishman faced another wrestler whom everyone thought would grind him into putty?

Anyway, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: besides being a killer in the cage (but not the boxing ring!), McGregor is the master of hype. I know this, you know this, and the UFC knows this. Hence, these vids they’ve put together.

You know you’re doing something right when the UFC makes a highlight reel of just you saying stuff. And for McGregor, they did it twice!
