VIDEO: Watch Patricky Pitbull Slaughter Ryan Couture

This Friday will bring us another Bellator installment, with Bellator 194 propping up UFC refugees Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione in the main event.

It will be either a pleasing slugfest or displeasing hugfest. But whatever. The real main event is the co-main – Patricky “Pitbull” Freire versus Derek Campos.

Here’s a quick vid of Pitbull and Campos’ greatest hits. Watch and enjoy.

Pitbull has been kicking butt in the organization since 2011, and though he’s never quite gotten to the top of the heap, he’s remained among the elite.

Campos fell to the Brazilian back in 2013, but he’s currently riding a four-fight win streak. Has Campos improved enough to beat back the jiu-jitsu black belt’s best, or will he get TKO’d again? Will Father Time finally make an appearance, and strip away all the durability and explosiveness that have made Pitbull great?

Who knows. I certainly don’t. What I do know is that to build up some hype for Friday night’s rematch, they’ve released Pitbull’s fight against Ryan Couture. And who doesn’t love watching Ryan Couture get creamed?

Seriously, poor Ryan. He had so much to live up to, what with his dad being the legendary Randy Couture (ahem, multiple UFC champ). But whereas ol’ pops was a world-class wrestler when he first entered into the cage, young Ryan had no such background. He was just a tough and skilled dude who learned it all in the gym, and managed only to employ a fraction of that knowledge before his opponents in the cage utterly smashed him.

Which is what Pitbull did to him back at Bellator 148.

Whether or not Pitbull still has the juice to beat Campos again at Bellator 194 is a question that will have to wait to be answered. In the meantime, let’s soak up this ultra-violent beatdown, shall we?

Lyoto Machida vs. Eryk Anders full fight video highlights – UFC Fight Night 125

Despite getting his face bloodied throughout 25 minutes of action last night (Sat., Feb. 3, 2018) at UFC Fight Night 125 live on FOX Sports 1 from inside Arena Guilherme Paraense in Belem, Brazil, former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida captured a split-decision win over formerly undefeated middleweight contender Eryk Anders.

Machida would find some success early by dropping Anders with a sweeping leg kick. “The Dragon” was back to his usual tricks as he eluded danger on the Octagon warning track and controlled the action. That was until Anders landed a solid straight left in the second round that sent the former champion back into the cage.

Anders would add to his efforts by landing a nasty inside knee in Round 3. It left a cut on the bridge of Machida’s nose, which ultimately spilled blood into the eye and mouth of “The Dragon.” Still, Machida was able to mix in some timely counter shots whenever Anders pressed his offense. He was taken down by Anders a few times, but quickly returned to his feet where he was able to score points with precision punching and piercing body kicks.

It was a back-and-forth affair that had a few momentum changes, but it was Machida who did enough through the course of five rounds to walk away with the split-decision win.

Check out the full fight video highlights above courtesy of UFC.

With this performance, Machida gets back into the win column after dropping his last three Octagon appearances. Machida called out former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping after the victory and may end up getting his wish. It would be a nice retirement matchup for “The Count,” and another chance for Machida to prove he’s still a contender at 185 pounds.

Midnight Mania! Mayweather tweets another bizarre video, McGregor still wants rematch

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

I’ll be honest. Like most MMA fans, I want to see McGregor in a “real” fight next… an MMA fight, against one of the many MMA fighters who have stacked up against the lightweight title damn like so much flotsam at a cracking beaver’s dam.

But with McGregor all but stripped of the lightweight title, there would seem to be little incentive for him to take a difficult fight against the toughest opponent in the division (whether that ends up being Khabib Nurmagomedov or Tony Ferguson). Nate Diaz has insinuated he’s warming up for a comeback fight, ostensibly for a trilogy. Aside from the distant possibility of Georges St. Pierre, that’s likely the biggest fight in terms of money that McGregor could take.

Except, of course, for the guy he just fought… er… boxed. Floyd Mayweather keeps teasing an entry into the foreign world of MMA. The latest video isn’t really any less cryptic than his other hints, with Mayweather just rubbing his hands together saying,

2018 Floyd Money Mayweather, MMA. What are the odds, Paddy? What are the odds?

What are the odds, indeed? Would Mayweather risk an almost certain, humiliating loss against McGregor? Unlike the Irishman, who gained access to a 100 million dollar payday he would never otherwise have gotten by crossing into boxing, Mayweather has other options. At least in McGregor’s case, boxing has been part of his skill set since his teenage years. Although obviously not a boxer on Mayweather’s level, he proved competent enough in the ring. Mayweather has no such experience to draw from in an MMA fight. We’ve seen boxers far out of their depth before in the Octagon. A rematch would not only be totally outside his comfort zone, it would also expose him to a feeling he has never allowed himself to experience: that of being beaten down on the most public stage imaginable.

Yet, there are upsides for Mayweather. The rivalry with McGregor clearly has steam; they nearly broke the Mayweather-Pacquaio record, with McGregor doing much of the promotional heavy lifting. It inspired plenty of post-fight talk. Somehow, people would talk themselves into buying a rematch in the boxing ring… but as many as the first bout? It’s doubtful. In the Octagon, Mayweather would be totally out of his depth, true- but it’s something we haven’t seen before. In that sense, it’s an easier sell. Casuals will believe Mayweather can knock out the Irishman in the cage too, and they will buy it. The novelty factor that helped make the first fight a cultural phenomenon would be back in full force for this one. In addition, Mayweather is risking his physical health, but his boxing record, his precious 50-0, would remain intact.

McGregor-Mayweather was a ridiculous circus fight the first time. A rematch in the Octagon would be exactly the same spectacle in reverse… which is the only reason it seems remotely likely.

McGregor obviously wants to get his loss back. Here, he admits as much at an award acceptance interview:


Insomnia

Belal Muhammad had the best response to Mayweather’s video:

TJ Dillashaw says he can make 125 without question

Derrick Lewis reflects my feelings on this music exactly.

Israel Adesanya with some different dancing

Paige VanZant is going from PVZ to PV.

This video with Mike Tyson explaining how he feels entering the ring is absolutely amazing.

Nate Diaz is too big for Hulk Hogan

Jackson Wink endorses this? No, they say don’t even watch unless you’ve got a steady stomach.

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!
