Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and his pregnant fiance, Lindsay Sheffield, found themselves doing normal pregnancy things recently, like couple’s wakesurfing.
Cerrone is known for his wild stunts, both professionally and for the fun of it, and clearly he found a woman able to keep up and thrive on his hyper-active lifestyle. Hopefully their baby didn’t mind the bumpy ride.
Cerrone, coming off a knockout win over Yancy Medeiros, next faces Leon Edwards in Singapore on June 23rd. Yes, this Leon Edwards.
Dustin Poirier vs. Eddie Alvarez 2 (which IS on, by the way) should determine the top contender at 155… if lightweight could ever sort itself into something resembling a rational division. Either way though, this was a fight that was shaping up to be something for the ages before Eddie’s illegal knees ended it the first time.

Tony Ferguson is back in training- by all rights he should be the guy next in line, having lost the interim title by freak injury, but no one wants to try to book him against Khabib for a fifth time. That’s part of what makes lightweight so murky.
Lyoto Machida’s family brand of karate was a big reason I got into MMA.
Vitor Belfort wearing his bath towel because what can they possibly do to him now?
Vitor has been around since these days. Also, this is hilarious.
So I’m talking with @jordanbreen about the greatest blooper in MMA history and I had to tweet it: Stephen Quadros calling Gary Goodridge vs. Amir Rahnavardi for the Pride FC 3 DVD release years after the fact and forgetting that the anecdote he’s telling is about this very fight. pic.twitter.com/rZbTc1FTnZ

Joe Schilling found this embarrassing footage of 50 Cent trying to throw a baseball.
Matt Brown wasn’t the guy I expected to share Childish Gambino’s disturbingly good music video.
BJJ Scout is incredibly prolific on Instagram
If this story is to be believed, Rampage Jackson is a better actor than 50 Cent… which must mean 50 Cent is not at all a good actor.
I found out why 50 wants to fight me.. turns out he was trying to get the role as BA in A Team. The director @carnojoe showed me his audition!! 50 you should watch yo mouth fam,that shit is embarrassing you don’t want yo fans clowning you son!
