Vera Returns, Fights Cerilli On Nov. 23 In Manila

ONE Championship has been taking over the mixed martial arts (MMA) headlines this week and today is no different, as reigning heavyweight champion, Brandon Vera, will make his return to combat sports on Nov. 23 in the Philippines.

That’s where “The Truth” will put his division title on the line against streaking Italian bruiser Mauro Cerilli, in a featured championship bout that headlines the upcoming “Conquest of Champions” event inside Mall of Asia Arena in Manila.

Vera (15-7) is undefeated since crossing over from the ranks of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) back in 2014. That includes three straight first-round knockout wins for the 41 year-old striker, who once alternated between heavyweight and light heavyweight.

As for Cerilli (12-2), the 35 year-old “Hammer” has been doing some finishing of his own, to the tune of four straight stoppages in five wins, dating back to early 2016. This will be his highest-profile contest to date after competing primarily on the European circuit.

Also competing at the upcoming ONE Championship: “Conquest of Champions” fight card is the lightweight showdown pitting hometown hero Eduard Folayang opposite Singapore’s Amir Khan for the vacant 155-pound strap.

Midnight Mania! Nick Diaz on Woodley-Till: ‘Stop Making Bullsh*t Fights’

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Nick Diaz weighed in on the Woodley-Till fight that went down this past weekend. In his estimation, it seems he thought Woodley took an easy fight in the form of Darren Till. It certainly ended up a one-sided bout, with Till landing barely a strike before succumbing to ground-and-pound and a Woodley choke in the second round.

“I missed the whole fight… I’ve never had an easy fight in my life. Fight that kid… I wouldn’t take one. It’s like… stop making bullshit fights with this guy!”

Nick Diaz hasn’t had a fight since his 2015 middleweight bout with Anderson Silva. He hasn’t had a win in the Octagon since 2011. Could we see the former Strikeforce welterweight champion make his return to MMA in the near future? He was recently cleared of a domestic violence charge, and has stated plans to return in 2019 after being serving a trumped-up suspension for weed use.


Insomnia

A lot of fighters were happy to see Tyron Woodley win in impressive fashion

Sorry, Wonderboy. Despite the draw and majority decision, no one wants to see this a third time.

CM Punk was also happy to see him win

This made me chuckle

The Chosen One

Nicco Montano, naturally, was not at all happy with the UFC or Shevchenko after her belt was summarily stripped from her this weekend.

Worth noting

Darren Till is already planning his comeback. Also, he doesn’t like Snoop Dogg.

This is a very weird Texas rule I didn’t know about.

This was some knockout! The spinning elbow trumped the spinning backfist.

Woah

UFC Fighter Bryce Mitchell Fights Power Tool, Loses Badly

Give some people a power tool and they’ll create a table out of thin air, or put together some shelves, or even build an extension on your house. They’re just incredibly handy.

Give TUF 27 washout Bryce Mitchell a power tool, though, and the dude will just about chop his own nuts off.

Seriously. This actually happened.

I’mma let ol’ Bryce tell it himself…

Mitchell even posted a pic of his bloody boxers to social media. Ugh.

If you’re looking for an upside to this horrible tale, you can take solace in the fact that more than a few underwear companies have reached out to the fallen fighter with offers.

Thankfully, no power tool companies have done the same.
