Pic: ‘Claudinha’ In Remission Following Battle With ‘Pigeon Ass’

Medical experts are stunned as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha is now in remission, following a career-long battle with pigeon ass.

Also known as “PA,” the increasingly-common weight-cutting syndrome has been known to suck the cellulite from the posteriors of even the most booty-ful mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, including “Claudinha.”

Fortunately for the Brazilian, who was stricken with PA at the UFC 212 pay-per-view (PPV) last June, her exercise regimen — coupled with a recycling bin full of deleted dick pics — sent her into remission.

The real test will be to see if she can get through the upcoming weigh ins for her Carla Esparza fight at the UFC 225 PPV event, official for Sat., June 9, 2018 inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

It’s an important bout in the 115-pound weight class, recently blown open by Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s loss to Rose Namajunas at UFC 217. A win by either Gadelha or Esparza at UFC 225 could be the key to securing another title shot.

UFC Orlando Loses Lightweight Bout Following ‘Unsafe’ Weight Cut

We’re still two days out from the official UFC on FOX 28 weigh ins, but that hasn’t stopped the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion from yanking a scheduled lightweight scrap over a potentially unsafe weight cut.

Gilbert Burns will not be allowed to compete this Saturday night (Feb. 24, 2018), where he was expected to meet Olivier Aubin-Mercier in the UFC on FOX 28 “Prelims” on Fight Pass inside Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

That’s according to a report from Flo Combat.

“Upon his arrival, the UFC medical team determined that it would be unsafe for Burns to cut additional weight necessary to meet the 156-pound limit,” UFC said in its official release. “The card will proceed as scheduled with twelve fights.”

No word yet on whether or not either competitor will receive their “show” money after being yanked from the line up, or rebooked for a future fight card. Expect that announcement in the next few days.

Midnight Mania! MMA Fans Head Kick Transit Officer in Perth Following UFC 221

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Watching a UFC event is supposed to be one of those “don’t try this on the way home, kids” experiences, but after UFC 221 in Perth, Australia, a couple drunk fans didn’t see it that way. Via Perthnow.com:

Police allege the men, from Rockingham and Wellard, were intoxicated and becoming loud and abusive about 3.25pm on Sunday, on their way home from the city’s first-ever UFC fight at Perth Arena.

PTA officers requested them to curb their behaviour and then asked them to leave the train at the next stop, Bull Creek station.

But it’s then alleged a fight took place with officers at the station and that one PTA employee was knocked out, after being kicked in the head.

The 32-year-old transit officer who was knocked out was left with severe concussion, swelling and bruises to the back and side of his head. He spent a night in hospital.

The other officer, aged 35, has swelling and bruising to the side of his face and jaw and is awaiting blood test results after being spat on.

With full-strength alcohol available from 6:30 AM Australian time, perhaps the bigger surprise is that more fans weren’t out of control. Only three people were ejected from Perth Arena for disorderly conduct, out of 12,000 fans. However, the 20 and 25-year old who fought the public officers face several charges, including escaping lawful custody, assaulting a public officer and endangering the life, health and safety of a person.

Alastair Overeem waxed poetic on the highs and lows of MMA after Luke Rockhold’s KO loss.

Someone fight Zabit Magomedsharipov.

I love good head movement.

We used to admire this man.

I hate Derrick Lewis for posting this video.

He even posted a reply meme!

Chris Weidman training with Muay Thai legend John Wayne Parr, adding tools to the arsenal.

Muay Thai sweeps are awesome.

Ilir Latifi and Alex Gustafsson getting some clinch work in.

Mischief managed.

Yoel Romero had the most success when he just rushed Rockhold, who moved back in straight lines all the way across the Octagon:

Al Iaquinta points out exactly what’s wrong with UFC 3: he’s making exactly zero money off his likeness.

Because the fighters have so much leverage. This fan doesn’t understand how monopsony works in labor markets.

Kajan Johnson and Nathan Quarry explaining to more ignorant fans how little the UFC fighters get paid as professional athletes at the highest level of their sport. It never fails to surprise me how many fans don’t understand this. Fighters talk about money all the time now because they realize how little of it they are getting from a 5 billion dollar company.

Israel Adesanya has a social media game.

Derrick Lewis appreciated this, and so do I.

Dustin Poirier hates the memes around the picture of Romero kissing Rockhold.

The memes surrounding this uncomfortable image will not go away, despite Poirier’s feelings on the matter.

Should Luke Rockhold get back to his roots?

This combination is unreal from Tenshin.

A reminder of just what new UFC middleweight Israel Adesanya is capable of:

I can’t remember if I posted this yet

I have never seen a triangle this dedicated.

That’s next level commitment.
