Midnight Mania! Canelo Suspended, Rematch With GGG In Doubt

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

One of the most anticipated rematches in boxing history might be in serious jeopardy.

And no, I’m not talking about McGregor-Mayweather II.

Gennady Golovkin went to a controversial draw in a fantastic war with Mexican star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, and the rematch is currently scheduled for May 5 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. However, Canelo failed one, then two of his pre-fight drug tests for clenbuterol, a substance Mexican and Chinese meat is often tainted with. That was the excuse Golden Boy, Alvarez’ promoter, went with. USADA has previously cleared UFC fighters like Brandon Moreno and Ning Guangyou of any harm, but the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) has suspended fighters for the substance. Canelo promised to move his camp to the United States and submit to further testing to clear up any suspicion.

Now, however, the NAC have elected to temporarily suspend Canelo for two samples collected February 17th and 20th, and will have to go before a commission for a disciplinary hearing on April 10th.

“I am an athlete who respects the sport and this surprises me and bothers me because it had never happened to me,” Alvarez said in a statement earlier this month. “I will submit to all the tests that require me to clarify this embarrassing situation and I trust that at the end the truth will prevail.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov is great. I root for him just for the trash talk in the Russian accent.

See this is why we have weight classes in human fighting

Size doesn’t always win out though, as this eagle fight shows.

A brilliant piece of footage here showing the superiority of our native Golden Eagle against the largest eagle in the world, the Stellars Sea Eagle. As you can see size is not always relative to power, and the Golden Eagle is victorious.

Joe Rogan likes roasting fake martial artists because they deserve to be roasted.

Rogan can do that because he practices real martial arts

Mike Perry offers to pay an internet hater to spar him, but it’s a sucker’s bet.

The fight our country deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

This fight is gonna be yuuuuuge. Who gets the W?

Anthony Pettis has submitted black belts in the Octagon, but his coaches just keep giving him stripes on his brown belt. Which is perfectly legitimate, it’s just interesting how different the sports of jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts have become.

UFC 223 Also Features ‘The Rematch’

UFC 223 — which is set to blow the roof off Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, New York on April 7, 2018 — will feature a Lightweight title fight between current champion Tony Ferguson and undefeated (25-0) phenom Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The co-main event, though, is rather tasty as Rose Namajunas will defend her women’s Strawweight title against the very person she took it from back at UFC 217 last November, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Joanna didn’t endear herself to fans after the loss, as the former champion offered up one excuse after another for the defeat, which didn’t seem to bother “Thug Rose” too much since she is confident she can do it again.

But, a determined Joanna is hungry for revenge and wants to prove once and for all the the division belongs to her after sitting atop of the weight class for so long.

Before the two run it back one more time, take a look at the latest video promo highlighting the much-anticipated championship rematch in the video player embedded above. And to see who else is fighting at UFC 223: “Ferguson vs Khabib” click here.

Midnight Mania! Cejudo’s Manager: Rematch with Mighty Mouse This Summer

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Several MMA managers have a… less than savory reputation. Like fight promoters, they often have incentive to misrepresent the facts. So, take the following with a grain of salt, but Ali Abdelaziz- one of the highest profile MMA managers to retain a shady reputation- tweeted that his client, Henry Cejudo, will be rematching Demetrious Johnson this summer.

This runs counter to claims by TJ Dillashaw that talks to implement the superfight between himself and Demetrious Johnson are in the early stages. Henry Cejudo last faced Demetrious Johnson in 2016, and lost by first round KO.

The malcontents and disaffected are joining Project Spearhead, the latest effort for and by fighters to gain employee status and unionize. I encourage all fighters to join; collective bargaining is likely the only way they will ever see a bigger slice of the UFC’s pie than the 17% or so they currently receive.

Combat sports this weekend

Machida vs. Belfort was announced, which has been dubbed the Old Man and the Pee. It’s fitting, because that movie was very slow-paced and this fight will be too.

Alan Jouban may be a model but his expressions after he wins are wild.
