Midnight Mania! Female fighter Tara LaRosa joins #MeToo, was forced to undergo pre-fight “breast exam”

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Tara LaRosa, a professional fighter for Invicta FC, joined the #MeToo campaign, where females share stories of sexual assault or harassment to raise awareness as to how common a phenomenon it is. Some estimates report that 1 out of 6 women experience a rape or attempted rape. The rate for sexual violence is much higher than that, though, with some sites reporting that nearly half of all women experience some form of sexual violence in their lives.

Tara’s story is a creepy one: a doctor insisted on giving her a “breast exam” before her Invicta FC 9 bout against Roxanne Modafferi. This isn’t a normal part of pre-fight medicals in any other state. She argued with him for half an hour, and he said if he wasn’t permitted to do the exam, she wouldn’t fight. Erik Magraken, lawyer and the founder of CombatSports.net, did some research, and nothing in the Massachusetts Athletic Commission regulations requires a breast exam. He writes:

While a physician does have broad discretion nowhere is a mandatory breast exam mentioned. The ‘special in-depth‘ exam is only triggered if there are ‘symptoms of ill health or physical impairment‘. It is hard to imagine how, absent compelling circumstances, a breast exam could be part of the pre-fight physical examination.

In other words, there was no justification for this. Given that the doctor insisted he had been doing this for years, the Massachusetts Athletic Commission has some questions to answer.

UFC fighter Roxanne Modafferi confirmed the story:


Insomnia

Artem Lobov, Conor McGregor’s longtime teammate, seems sure that Conor McGregor will fight Tony Ferguson next.

“Now that that’s [Mayweather vs. McGregor's] over, well now he’s back to defending his belt,” Lobov told Bryant. “In my eyes, of course he’s going to fight Tony. Why wouldn’t he fight Tony? His belt is on the line. Some guy has this fake belt around his waist. Conor wants to just take that away by all means.

“So in my eyes, 100 percent he’s going to fight Tony. Who else is he going to fight? Why wouldn’t he fight Tony? Why wouldn’t he defend that belt? That belt means a lot to Conor. He’s dreamed since a very, very long time ago of having that belt, so… it’s going to be damn, damn hard to try and take that belt from him. He’s going to be defending that belt for a long time.”

Daniel Cormier to undergo surgery on torn adductor tendon, seeks March UFC title defense

Good news is finally on the horizon for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion.

Daniel Cormier (18-1) has seen better days after an MRI revealed a torn adductor tendon in his right leg last week, which forced him to withdrawal from his main event slot at UFC 206 for his highly anticipated rematch against Anthony Johnson (22-5). This was his second attempt at defending his title for the second time, after Jon Jones was removed from UFC 200 due to testing positive for banned substances.

“DC” just can’t seem to catch a break. Luckily for him, it doesn’t seem like he will miss a lengthy amount of time.

The current UFC light heavyweight titleholder is set to undergo surgery to repair the groin tear today — as reported by UFC Tonight and then confirmed by MMA Fighting — and the champ hopes to make a quick return to the Octagon.

As long Cormier’s surgery goes as planned, he will be out of the gym for the succeeding two months. The light heavyweight champ seeks to get right back to competing as soon as possible however, and even though he’d be out of training for awhile, his return could happen as early as March of 2017.

Cormier has only defended the title once since claiming it against Johnson in May of 2015. His lone title defense came in November of last year, when he defeated Alexander Gustafsson by split decision at UFC 192. He’s only competed in one fight since, which was a victory over mixed martial arts (MMA) legend, Anderson Silva, in a non-title affair at UFC 200.

If all goes according to plan, MMA fans will look forward to March of next year to see “DC” finally defend his light heavyweight strap for the second time.

Evangelista Santos to undergo surgery for fractured skull following KO loss to Michael Page

Evangelista Santos lost to Michael Page at Saturday’s Bellator 158, and it will take a while before he’s able to return to action.

Page dropped “Cyborg” with a vicious flying knee in the second round of their welterweight contest at the O2 Arena in London, and the Brazilian told MMA Fighting on Sunday that he’s currently at the hospital with a serious fracture in his forehead.

“I’m under observation now, and will have surgery in the United States,” Santos told MMA Fighting. “I had a serious injury, but Bellator is giving me all the support I need.”

Santos took the fight on short notice after going 1-1 in his previous Bellator fights, and says that this injury will kept him sidelined for a while, but doesn’t mean the end of his mixed martial arts career.

“I’ll be back soon,” he said.

Evangelista Cyborg Santos

According to an Instagram post from Santos’ ex-wife Cris Cyborg, a gofundme account is being created to help the 38-year-old veteran fighter.

Bellator color commentator Jimmy Smith added on Twitter that a former ENT told him that he had “only seen an injury like that in a severe car crash.”

Anderson Silva to undergo surgery Wednesday, could be cleared to train in 4 to 6 weeks

CURITIBA, Brazil — Anderson Silva is out of a UFC 198 middleweight clash with Uriah Hall, and Silva’s doctor Marcio Tannure told MMA Fighting that the former champion is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday morning to remove his gall bladder.

Silva was expected to fly from Rio de Janeiro to Curitiba on Tuesday morning, but was rushed to the hospital four hours before his team was supposed to leave.

“He called me and said ‘I’m going to the hospital, but I’ll get better’, so we came to Curitiba,” Silva’s coach Luiz Carlos Dorea said. “When we arrived in Curitiba, he said ‘Master, I came home but the pain is too much.’ I told him to eat something, but he said ‘I can’t, I’m eating and throwing up.’ He told me this afternoon that it was too painful and he had to go back to the hospital.”

According to the boxing coach, Silva was only five pounds away from making weight for UFC 198 and excited to be fighting in Curitiba for the first time in more than a decade.

“He was doing great, and this came out of nowhere,” Dorea said. “He felt some (abdominal) pain before, but nothing serious. He always came back to train the next day, so we never imagined it would be something like this.”

The UFC has yet to announce if Hall will get a new opponent for Saturday’s UFC pay-per-view event.
