Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we have Bethe Correira telling Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes to watch her mouth, the Diaz brothers smoking pot out of a golden joint, Stephen Thompson imitating Conor McGregor’s walk perfectly, clips from LFA 2, inauguration violence and much, much more.

Front Line

According to Combate (transcription via BloodyElbow.com), Correira is happy Ronda Rousey paid for her arrogance, but warns “Lioness” of the dangers of that path.

"She needs to be careful. Amanda is a great fighter. A person must value themselves. I value myself above all things. To me, I'm the best fighter in the UFC. I really believe that. Honestly, I don't see Amanda as a fighter who will dominate the division. I don't think she'll beat everyone she fights, like Anderson Silva did. Cat Zingano beat her up, let's not forget that, it's a fact.

Correira went on to criticize Nunes’ performance past the first round -- a legitimate observation, as Nunes has consistently gassed in later rounds.

"She's really good in the first round, but when she passed the second round she showed no quality in any of her other UFC fights. She needs to watch her mouth. Ronda paid for her excess of arrogance. I, too, had my moments to learn. I think Amanda is going through that right now, of feeling confident. She still has a long way to go."

She has a point, even if it seems doubtful Correia will be the one to teach Nunes that lesson.


Bobs and Weaves

Nick and Nate Diaz know how to smoke a blunt.

Looks like Nate Diaz did spend his money on some nice shit.

“Wonderboy” has “The Notorious” swagger walk down ... perfectly.

WWE, though, is probably still mad that McGregor improved on Vince McMahon’s signature entrance.

I feel bad about laughing at Tito Ortiz’s inability to form coherent sentences when put on the spot. Let’s just hope there’s not more to it.

Forrest Griffin out here choking dudes!

Lauren Murphy coming in hot with this callout of Jessica Eye


Slips, Rips, and Awesome Clips

Nothing quite like the glorious beauty of precise technique.

This is better:

These GLORY fighters get after it, eh?

SUMO!!!

This was incredibly slick

This was nice too

Alright Ben the Baker (I’m giving away how weird my childhood was with this reference):

This is fun violence!

Um ... maybe pick a different clip for this?

Got him!

Nasty kimura ...

Precision beats power, timing beats speed:


Quick Hits

  • Ovince Saint Preux has a new opponent for UFC Fight Night 104.
  • Fabricio Werdum called out Junior dos Santos for a gym war ... even though he just turned down a fight with “Cigano.”
  • Studly WSOF Bantamweight champion, Marlon Moraes, wants Jimmie Rivera for his UFC debut. Yeah, I’d watch that!

Random Land

Donald Trump’s inauguration was today and a lot of people aren’t happy ... including the future of the United States:

Trump speechwriters love to copy lines, Batman:

The intersection of politics and face-punching occurs in unexpected places

I can’t support the act, but I support the joke:

This dog has the timing of Conor McGregor!
