Midnight Mania! Porn Site to Stream A Truly Wild MMA Event

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

A porn website will be blending their regular product with an MMA event, and I have so many questions.

The webcam streaming site Camsoda will be putting on a mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on April 26th. Headlined by former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez against former UFC middleweight Alex Nicholson, “Camsoda Legends” is the most Florida event to happen since bath salts became a thing. It even features Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett. And yes… the ring girls will be available after the fights as a “special bonus”- as cam girls, in other words.


What makes this even weirder? The fans watching via livestream will be able to pay money to tip the fighters… and to get the fighters to do the moves they want. This is the part I still have questions about. As Ben Fowlkes explains, the press release makes it seem straightforward… but it’s not exactly clear how it will work in reality.

“For the first-time ever, fans will be able to directly interact with fighters in real-time,” it states. “As the fights occur, fans watching the livestream will be able to determine bonus money and provide extra incentive for specific finishing moves.”

The release goes on to say that “specific requests” will be relayed to the fighters during their fights.

“The more a user tips, the more direction over the fights they are afforded,” it adds.

Will the fighters get that money if they go for, say, an armbar, but don’t get it? How are these wishes communicated to the fighters? Won’t the opponent be able to hear that and be able to counter it? Isn’t it somewhat degrading to take MMA fighters, notoriously hard up for cash, and put them onto a porn stream where they have to perform tricks for cash?

Yes, I know, you could ask the same about the cam girls.


Sex and violence have always gone together… so perhaps this was inevitable. Still… it all feels a little like an episode of Black Mirror to me.


Insomnia

Should champions defend their belts against the toughest contenders, or spend their time looking for superfights?

Ouch

Oezdemir vs. Shogun is a good matchup but it’s pretty wild Shogun is still relevant at light heavyweight so far into his decline.

This wrestling counter is interesting

Aljamain Sterling is convinced PED users are pathetic.

Masvidal shut Ali Abdelaziz down for saying he turned down Kamaru Usman


Slips, Rips, KO Clips

Takeru, is, of course, incredible.

This flurry was incredible

Live UFC 220 stream, online video updates – YouTube

My name is Flyin’ Brian J and I will be providing real-time updates during the entire UFC 220 pay-per-view (PPV) main card this evening (Sat., Jan. 20, 2018) during a LIVE YouTube telecast (subscribe to MMAmania.com’s channel right here) that will stream in the video player above.

For some reason (I’m assuming inflation mixed with greed), UFC has upped its PPV price from $ 60 to $ 65. And although the main- and co-main event fights (Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou and Daniel Cormier vs. Volkan Oezdemir) are absolutely tantalizing match ups, the rest of the card hidden behind a pay wall isn’t all that spectacular … on paper. That is why I’ve decided to provide a FREE (and legal) alternative to shelling out your hard-earned cash. I might be uglier than Joe Proctor with a gargantuan hematoma, but I will do my best to keep you informed on the bizarre, remarkable and spine-tingling action.

Join me. Perhaps we can even enjoy some delectable craft beer together!

Body shot to the left side. Krause punches into a clinch and a takedown attempt. White crossfaces Krause to stay upright. Krause working hard, but not getting it. He gets an outside trip and lands on top. White tries to get out, nearly gets his back taken. Side control for Krause. Not much happening and they eventually move to north-south. Side again. 30 seconds left and… not much. Krause has had top control for a good three minutes, but really did nothing with it other than maintain control.

10-10 round.

Round 2: White charges in and gets one part of the combo to snap Krause’s head back. Both men land rights. White gets in a 3-2, but eats a big counter right about ten seconds later. Left lands for White. Krause ducks under a punch and gets the double leg at about 3:20 of the round – let’s see how long he maintains this. Not much again. White tries an armbar. Lands in the south part of the north-south again. White with some punches from bottom and he kicks off and reverses into a takedown of his own. Krause manages to get up fairly soon and clinched with Krause. Takedown again for James. White reverses into a guilllotine as the round ends.

Krause gets in a left, and another. Krause able to control the rest of the round, despite not getting in a lot of offense. There’s a right hand.

10-9 White

Final result: James Krause def. Alex White via decision (unanimous) 29-28 x3


155 lbs.: Matt Frevola vs. Marco Polo Reyes

Round 1: Frevola in blue, Reyes in green. Frebola with a headkick that gets blocked like… two seconds in. Reyes with a huge punch that knocks out Matt’s mouthpiece. Frevola gets rocked again and nearly goes out. Frevola is hugely sloppy here and he’s eating a ton of shots. He’s trying to bum rush Reyes and Reyes is just piecing him up. Hurt him with a left. BOOM! Huge right to the chin just turns the lights out for Frevola.

170 lbs.: Thiago Alves vs. Zak Cummings

Round 1:

Round 2:

Round 3:

Final result:


125 lbs.: Jessica Eye vs. Kalindra Faria

Round 1: Faria and Eye out firing. Punching in bunches to start off and Faria with a nice clinch knee. Headkick from the Brazilian and she gets Eye to the ground. Mount on Eye. Jessica with a heel hook to get out of it and Faria attacks with one of her own. Hard to tell, but it looks like Eye has a nice hematoma from that kick earlier. Neither seem to really get solid locks on, despite near two solid minutes of 50/50 position. Hand-fighting by both women to make sure their ligaments don’t rip. Faria gets an elbow in. One minute left. Eye with a couple punches from the bottom.

10-9 Faria, but it could go either way

Round 2: Quick clinch with Eye backing Faria into the cage. Eye has a bodylock and drags Faria to the ground. Eye gets one hook in, then the second. RNC attempt, but it’s not under the chin. Body triangle now. Faria trying to spin into the triangle, but Eye blocks it. 100 seconds to go. Eye with a punch – the first strike in a good three minutes. Eye lets go of the triangle and loses her hooks. Gets one back as Faria tries to stand. Left from Eye near the clapper and that’s all for this round.

10-9 Eye

Round 3: Knee to the body from Faria. Leg kick. Jab from Eye might be her first strike this round. Side kick to the face of Eye. Left hand a couple seconds later, too. Not sure why Eye hasn’t made a concerted effort to get this to the ground, as she had a lot of success last round dominating the ground. Spinning backfist for Kalindra. There’s the takedown from Eye and she’s in a loose full guard. Eye curiously stands up and backs off, letting Faria up. Faria with a takedown of her own. Knee to the left side of eye’s ribs. Trip from Eye and she’s on top, passing through Faria’s attempt at rubber guard. Arm triangle attempt goes nowhere, as does an Americana. Nothing really happens as the bout ends.

10-9 Faria in a close fight.

Final result: Jessica Eye def. Kalindra Faria via decision (split) 29-28 x2, 28-29


135 lbs.: Irene Aldana vs. Talita Bernardo

Round 1: Bernardo in the dark purple tank top, Aldana in green camo. Aldana with a right hand. Aldana pumping the 1-2, but not landing a whole lot clean. It’s keeping Bernardo busy and as I type that she gets in a nice right to the temple. 2-1. 1-2… it’s basic, but it’s clean and working. Big right wobbles Bernardo and Aldana is pouring it on. Bernardo tries a takedown and lands on bottom with Aldana in full mount. Bernardo is a solid BJJ player and is able to get out of the position. She threatens a takedown of her own, but gets hip tossed on her back again. Aldana lands on top, but again, Bernardo is able to get up and do what she does best. Bernardo trying to land a takedown, but she isn’t getting it as Aldana’s balance is too good so far. Aldana manages to get free and is back to slinging her punches. Aldana stonewalls a takedown attempt and stays out of the guard pull attempt. GNP from Aldana as the round ends.

10-8 Aldana

Round 2: Nice shovel left hook from Aldana lands flush on the chin. Nice little footwork change from Aldana there. She realized she was chasing and moved back to the center of the cage to make sure she could cut off the angle of escape. Bernardo finally gets a nice single and chain wrestles it into a takedown. Top control for Bernardo, but Aldana threatens with a triangle. Punch from Bernardo. Closed guard. Elbows from bottom by Irene. Aldana posts and tries to turn, but Bernardo drags her back down.

10-9 Aldana

Round 3: Slow start to the round as Bernardo is just going backwards, getting boxed up with occasional 1s and 2s while shooting takedowns from way out. Aldana with a smart, if boring approach to make sure that she doesn’t get too aggressive and taken down. Bernardo finally getting aggressive and lands a couple of nice shots. Bernardo gets rocked coming in on a takedown, but manages to at least get it to the ground, despite being on bottom.

10-9 Aldrich.

Round 2: Not a lot of action from the two women to open up the round. Taylor looks to be the busier of the two, but isn’t doing much with her combinations.

The UFC newcomer started to find a home for his hands, too, as Rountree offered little movement around the pocket. In Round 2, Rountree regrouped a little and got his hands going again. Oleksiejczuk returned favor with more strikes to the body. Both men looked visibly tired, but managed to exchange hard strikes in the middle of the Octagon. Oleksiejczuk was more active in the later minutes of the frame as Rountree had to reset after throwing just a few punches. The third and final frame saw Rountree land a ferocious barrage of strikes in the early going, but Oleksiejczuk took them in stride before landing a big-time takedown. From there, Oleksiejczuk would land some short shots to the body whiling controlling Rountree and sapping any energy he had left. In the end, it was Oleksiejczuk who did enough over the course of all three rounds to capture the unanimous decision win.

Myles Jury vs. Rick Glenn

Former lightweight contender Jury (17-2) looked to continue his comeback campaign at 145 pounds when he squared off with gritty journeyman and streaking contender Glenn (20-5-1). Both men tangled along the cage early on. Jury took his time in landing some kicks to the body before landing in top position during a scramble to the canvas. Glenn got back to his feet, but Jury went back to the body with punches to soften the veteran up. In Round 2, Glenn pressured Jury up against the cage to wear him down. Jury got back to the middle of the cage and landed some good combinations that bloodied Glenn up. Glenn didn’t offer much offense outside of some clinch work. That was until Jury took him down and scored some valuable ground-and-pound. The third and final frame saw Jury land hard punches early. He was simply sharper and more technical than Glenn, who plodded forward and fell into Jury’s chest. Despite the close-quarter combat, Jury remained fresh and kept his feet moving around the pocket when the action broke up. In the end, it was Jury’s patience and persistence that did enough on the judges’ scorecards to walk away with the unanimous decision win.

Marvin Vettori vs. Omari Akhmedov

In the lone middleweight bout of the evening, Italian prospect Vettori (12-3-1) looked to improve his divisional record to 3-1 when he took on Russian finisher Akhmedov (17-4-1). Akhmedov opened up with a hard kick to the body. Vettori responded with a short knee inside. The Russian came back with a huge right hand that stunned Vettori and then stalked him around the cage with even more power shots. Vettori did little to circle away and avoid Akhmedov’s best shots. In Round 2, Akhmedov came out with heavy inside leg kicks. Vettori came back with a kimura attempt before transitioning to a tight triangle choke. Akhmedov defended nicely and eventually sneaked free. Both men looked visibly tired as Akhmedov went back to the leg kick to dictate the pace of the fight. The third and finale frame saw a winded Akhmedov swing for the fences, as Vettori took more time to line up his shots, including a flying knee along the cage. Vettori followed that up with a nice one-two combination that snapped the Russian’s head back. Akhmedov tried to regain some momentum with a spinning back fist, but it didn’t land nearly hard enough. In the end, the bout was ruled majority draw.

Louis Smolka vs. Matheus Nicolau

Sparking off the FS1 preliminary card was a flyweight tilt pitting Hawaiian veteran Smolka (11-5) against rising contender Nicolau (13-1-1). Nicolau landed a huge left hook early. Smolka tried to switch things up from range and change levels, but Nicolau tagged him at will on the inside, eventually scoring a brief knockdown. Nicolau dropped Smolka again and started to land heavy strikes on the ground before nearly locking up an arm triangle choke. Smolka defended nicely and eventually turned out of harm’s way. Nicolau ended up hurting the Hawaiian with another flush left hook counter before the end of the frame. In Round 2, Nicolau started to land even more left hooks, as Smolka stumbled away on almost every inside exchange. Smolka’s right eye really started to swell. Smolka tried to battle back with some kicks and attacks to the body, but Nicolau’s power punches continued to dictate the fight. The third round saw Smolka go right back to the body. That was until Nicolau caught a kick and scored a slick sweep. Nicolau would follow his efforts up with a timely takedown and an eventual submission attempt before the end of the fight.

Tim Elliott vs. Mark De La Rosa

The opening bout of the evening saw former UFC flyweight title challenger Elliott (15-8-1) move up to 135 pounds to take on undefeated 23-year-old Texas prospect De La Rosa (9-1). The Octagon newcomer looked for a guillotine choke early on, but Elliott quickly transitioned and gained control on the mat. De La Rosa remained offensive off his back with an arm bar attempt. Elliott picked him up and slammed him on his head. From there, Elliott scored in bunches with hard punches to the body and slicing elbows. In Round 2, Elliott quickly scrambled and nearly locked in an anaconda choke. At one point, Elliott turned to the referee and said De La Rosa bit his arm. After another scramble on the ground, Elliott was able to lock in another anaconda choke and finally tap De La Rosa.
