Midnight Mania! Joe Lauzon Busts Devin Powell’s Balls-Literally

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Devin Powell will be out of action for a while.

The UFC lightweight was training knees with Joe Lauzon and evidently, Lauzon literally busted his balls. Or, more properly, his ball, rupturing a testicle with “his sheer power”.

Devin was surprisingly upbeat about the whole thing. He evidently waited a day and a half to go to the doctor… which he doesn’t recommend. He explained the incident on Instagram:

Thanks to the fine ambulatory services in Wells, ME, I am checked into the hospital and ready for surgery. Shout out to @joelauzon we’ve been practicing knees on the ground and he successfully ruptured my testicle with his sheer power. His opponent has no chance in April … now to get the blood clot drained and the goods repaired . I waited a day and a half to be seen.. word for the wise, if you hurt yourself, go get checked out. @danawhite @seanshelbyhow about a NY @Ufc fight coming up… this will be quite the comeback story . Share this and help me get the ball rolling on my next Fight and follow my journey… pun intended

Ouch.


Insomnia

Nate Diaz is training with wrestlers… can anyone say “The Chosen One”?

Speaking of fighters we would like to see in the cage again, here’s Jon Jones in his empty garage:

Ian McCall vs. Kyoji Horiguchi in Rizin? That’s an awesome fight

Luke Rockhold vs. Alexander Gustafsson?? Despite Rockhold’s KO loss to Romero… count me in. Gus’s callout was awesome too.

Dan Hardy and Tyron Woodley had a social media exchange

I can’t say anything about this, except, sweep the leg!

Two words: Tombstone Piledriver

Project Spearhead is the latest attempt to get the UFC fighters to organize, and I, naturally, am all for it. Help the fighters- spread the word!

Woah.

Get hyped for Glory 50:

Out of nowhere:

Ouch…

Watch Joe Lauzon vs Marcin Held full fight video highlights from UFC Fight Night 103

Joe Lauzon and Marcin Held threw down in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 103 — which went down tonight (Sun., Jan. 15, 2017) inside Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona — and it took all three rounds to determine a winner.

Lauzon was the aggressor early, looking to put the striking pressure on Held from the jump. But, Marcin stayed composed and managed to get the bout to the ground on a few occasions, though some say wouldn’t be the best option against a submission specialist like “J-Lau.”

That didn’t deter Held from taking the longtime veteran down repeatedly. Lauzon nearly locked in a fight-ending armbar in round two, but Held once again kept his cool, fighting his way out.

In round three, both men were visibly tired, as the strikes had less pop to the, and the takedown attempts were plentiful. In the end, the Octagon-side judges scored the bout in favor of Lauzon, who didn’t agree with the decision, saying he felt Held should’ve been awarded the win.

Classy.

Nevertheless, Held is now 0-2 to begin his UFC career, while Joe picks up an all-important win after he felt he “got screwed” in his last fight against Jim Miller.
