Midnight Mania! Cruz Cleared, Previews UFC Calgary With Bisping

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz revealed he has been cleared to return to combat, then he and former middleweight champion Michael Bisping previewed UFC: Calgary. Bisping kicks off the preview by saying, unlike Eddie Alvarez against Poirier in their first fight, he would never land an illegal knee — so you know it only gets better from there.

Cruz has had a long history of injury; his recent misfortune was an arm break that took him out of a UFC 219 matchup with Jimmie Rivera.

UFC: Calgary is headlined by a rematch between Dustin Poirier and Eddie Alvarez that promises to be fireworks; the stacked main card also features Jose Aldo vs. Jeremy Stephens and Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Tecia Torres.

Olivier Aubin-Mercier is really leaning into this “Canadian gangster” persona and it’s pretty funny.

Al Iaquinta and Aljamain Sterling can’t figure out what is going on

Why didn’t this genius hold the target out to the side? I’m confused. Was this the first time they ever tried this?

Mike Perry is evidently fighting Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, which could be awesome or depressing depending on how it shakes out.

What is happening in this picture of Jorge Masvidal?

Dangit, Michael Chandler. Why do you have to make the rest of us look bad.

Odd but true: Israel Adesanya and Rory Macdonald share a birth date.

This does seem unnecessary in sparring and a good way to give training partners concussions.

Would you defend your girl in this scenario?
