Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
According to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, he is fighting Conor McGregor for the interim lightweight title. Via his Instagram:
Good News @thenotoriousmma looks like we get to fight for 155 Interim Title vs @properwhiskey vs @budweiser
It seems likely, considering comments made by Dana White after the UFC 234 press conference, in which he said that both men have ‘earned’ this opportunity. Via BloodyElbow.com:
“Those two want to fight each other, they’ve both earned it,” White told MMAjunkie following the UFC 234 pre-fight press conference in Australia. “‘Cowboy’s’ fought anybody we’ve ever put against him. We throw this young killer Hernandez at him, ‘Cowboy’s’ the underdog and he goes in and does it the way he did it, then Conor’s fought everybody.
“If these two want to fight, I’m down.”
According to Dana’s comments, he also thinks Tony Ferguson is next for current lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, which makes the timeline interesting. If Cerrone fights McGregor this summer, the UFC will presumably want Khabib to fight Ferguson around the same time, but Khabib wants to wait until November. The man left out in the cold in that scenario, of course, is Dustin Poirier, who has been holding out hope for a title shot of his own.
Not everyone is going to end up happy in any scenario, particularly with the weight of McGregor’s drawing power warping the gravity around any hope of rational decisions involving the UFC lightweight title. Cerrone vs. McGregor is an easy sell, and that might be what ends up counting.
Joe Rogan is evidently a really popular tattoo for some reason
Dominick Cruz too?? Who is getting these tattoos?
I really wish I hadn’t seen this, this looks like an alien is trying to climb out the back of Gastelum’s neck.
This is a less gross version of the meme

In related news, Jose Aldo’s coach also wants that Alex Volkanovski fight.
“Bobby Knuckles” is hated by Dana, which is a great reason to keep calling Robert Whittaker that.
Point #54,332 on why Bobby Knuckles rules as a nickname is that Dana hates it and has historically awful taste. pic.twitter.com/UHdo0VSxZO
