Stop A Near-Riot, Get Free UFC Tickets

After Khabib Nurmagomedov went nuts and leaped the Octagon to get at Dillon Danis shortly after submitting Conor McGregor at UFC 229, Daniel Cormier jumped into the cage to try and diffuse the situation.

With Khabib looking up to “DC” as the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) captain, training partner and friend, “The Eagle” took Daniel’s advice and eventually got his emotions in check.

“I was trying to go up to talk to him and they kept pushing me. But he kept telling them, ‘This is my capitan, let him through.’ So when I finally got close enough to him I told him, ‘Hey, what in the world is going on? What are you doing? You have got to calm down,” said Cormier during a recent interview on The Ariel Helwani MMA Show.

“And he said, ‘Okay capitan, give me my belt.’ The dude was worked up. I have honestly never seen him act like that.”

To hear “DC” tell the tale, his son also jumped over the cage to help his dad, but was ultimately restrained by UFC security. Seriously.

For his efforts in calming the melee down, Cormier says the promotion refunded him the money he spent on front-row tickets he purchased for his entire family to attend the event.

“I buy tickets. I buy tickets for my kids to go to the fights. We were given tickets and I buy tickets and then the whole fight happens,” explained Cormier. “Then Dana calls me back and says ‘We are giving you your money back becasue you helped us calm everybody down. We can’t charge you for tickets.’

It’s a good thing, too, because Octagon-side seats weren’t cheap.

UFC also paid Daniel a hefty sum — according to the man himself — to defend his heavyweight title against Derrick Lewis at the upcoming UFC 230 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y.

Midnight Mania! Nick Diaz on Woodley-Till: ‘Stop Making Bullsh*t Fights’

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Nick Diaz weighed in on the Woodley-Till fight that went down this past weekend. In his estimation, it seems he thought Woodley took an easy fight in the form of Darren Till. It certainly ended up a one-sided bout, with Till landing barely a strike before succumbing to ground-and-pound and a Woodley choke in the second round.

“I missed the whole fight… I’ve never had an easy fight in my life. Fight that kid… I wouldn’t take one. It’s like… stop making bullshit fights with this guy!”

Nick Diaz hasn’t had a fight since his 2015 middleweight bout with Anderson Silva. He hasn’t had a win in the Octagon since 2011. Could we see the former Strikeforce welterweight champion make his return to MMA in the near future? He was recently cleared of a domestic violence charge, and has stated plans to return in 2019 after being serving a trumped-up suspension for weed use.

A lot of fighters were happy to see Tyron Woodley win in impressive fashion

Sorry, Wonderboy. Despite the draw and majority decision, no one wants to see this a third time.

CM Punk was also happy to see him win

This could get interesting

Karolina Kowalkiewicz issued a statement to her fans after her knockout loss to nigh-unstoppable strawweight force Jessica Andrade.

This made me chuckle

The Chosen One

Nicco Montano, naturally, was not at all happy with the UFC or Shevchenko after her belt was summarily stripped from her this weekend.

Worth noting

Darren Till is already planning his comeback. Also, he doesn’t like Snoop Dogg.

This is a very weird Texas rule I didn’t know about.

Matt Riddle is making it big in pro wrestling

Just a few highlights from the weekend

This was some knockout! The spinning elbow trumped the spinning backfist.

Woah

Also… sumo is back.

Holly Holm Ain’t Retiring, So Stop Asking

You know who isn’t considering retiring? Holly Holm.

I mean, why would she? She only lost four out of her last six fights. And couldn’t win the UFC’s new female featherweight title in two tries. And lost the bantamweight title in her first fight as champ by getting choked unconscious by Miesha Tate.

Still, being the first to knock out Ronda Rousey, and then two years knocking out Bethe Correia, buys you a lot of leeway in a pair of female divisions with very little top talent.

At UFC 219, Holm gave champ Cris Cyborg a hell of a fight, but ultimately lost a clear-cut decision. Here’s she is talking to Ariel Helwani on “The MMA Hour” about the future.

“Why wouldn’t I want to return when I just gave her the toughest fight in weight class that is a heavier weight class from where I usually fight against the biggest person?” Holm asked. “I was the one who gave her her toughest fight so I don’t really understand the retirement, you know, people think should you retire maybe it’s just because of the way that, you know how those four fights have gone.”

“I know I’m still competitive, have a lot of capabilities if I want to do it. I definitely don’t have the, obviously every year gets a little bit more, maybe I can kind of coming closer. I’m 36, I’ll be 37 next year, I still feel like I’m strong and in competitive shape. I don’t feel 36. I feel competitive and I feel strong feel and I feel can really do well, so I’m keep going to keep going with it.”

Midnight Mania! Nurmagomedov Tells Cain to Stop Talking About ‘Fake’ WWE

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Khabib Nurmagomedov thinks Cain Velasquez should stop talking about the WWE and focus on his long-awaited UFC comeback.

Let’s go @officialcainvelasquez it’s not @wwe it’s #MMA bro, be ready, @ufc fans waiting for you, stop talking about fake #wwe trainig. #realfighter #ufcfighter #ufc #mma #wwe #CainVelasquez#2timeufcheawyweightchampion

This is the tweet Khabib was referencing:

In other news, Khabib standing next to Cain Velasquez looks massive ahead of his lightweight title fight at UFC 223 with Tony Ferguson, a fight that has already been booked and cancelled three times due to injuries and failed weight cuts.

Hopefully his injury-prone heavyweight teammate can muster his own comeback soon.

Who would have possibly guessed? The truly amazing part is how a guy with this much on his record has managed to gain the trust of so many high-level MMA fighters.
