Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Brittney Elena makes a living on her looks, as a model, but it turns out she is a very skilled athlete as well. She completely shut Floyd Mayweather down at a charity basketball game Tuesday, just using good fundamental defense.
So, so beautiful.

He also got crossed up by an R&B singer later.
Floyd got CROSSED UP by TANK too

Rose Namajunas is so right. It will never stop surprising me how professional basketball players are just built to another scale than the rest of us.
GSP was with Rose at the ESPYs.
Israel Adesanya is clearly the fight to make for Anderson Silva; he is Silva’s spiritual successor and the chance for them to fight is fleeting. Style Bender vs. Spider. Last generation of great striker vs. new generation of great striker. Adesanya works best when given space; Silva will give him space. Silva works best when on the counter; Adesanya is probably confident enough to come forward without having to worry about the takedown.
Anderson Silva is cleared to return this fall.
Who would you like to see him fight upon his return?

Donald Cerrone got a custom lever-action Henry rifle for his kid and that’s pretty damn awesome.
All of these seem accurate though

The wider world is seeing this and I’m ashamed
I included Angela Hill’s post about Alexa Grasso for the pun
Hopefully Bellator’s welterweight tournament sees Michael Page actually fight Paul Daley and/or some other good welterweights.
I spoke to Paul Daley (@Semtex_170) this morning and this is what he told me:
“I have every intention of being in the tournament. I’m pretty sure that Micheal Page (@Michaelpage247) will be my first fight, just hope we can get the deal done.”

I don’t know who to root for because both these guys have gotten raw deals in their last couple bouts. Merab Dvalishvili fights at an utterly insane pace and nearly survived that guillotine for thirty seconds by just bicycling his feet, and Terrion Ware has fought hot prospects or top fifteen guys in each of his three UFC fights so far.
Pretty happy that both these guys got another shot!
- Merab got a reasonably bad split against Saenz and then that screwy finish with Simon.
- Ware has fought Stamann, O’Malley & Duquesnoy… Three Super Prospects!

This link is worth watching. The kid knows how to fight. Of course, bullies can also learn MMA…

I saw this work in Fast and Furious 7 so it’s definitely a real technique.
Slips, Rips, KO Clips
The ‘truck driver’ literally cleaned his clock with this punch, sending the sand flying off his face.

Size isn’t always everything- this ‘turn his own strength against him’ moment is straight out of the camp action movies I used to watch as a kid.
Day11 Enho (R) vs Tamaki. Makukshita battle, both already have KK. I don’t even bother anymore to check if Enho is going to make the bout interesting before I take video. #sumolingo #nagoyabasho pic.twitter.com/P0XqQzRr0v
