Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we have Ronda Rousey getting her concealed carry license, Donald Cerrone opening up about his new career as an actor and a stuntman, “King Mo” Lawal roasting Rampage Jackson on Instagram, who is out there barely tolerating puppies, referee “Big John” McCarthy putting his thumb in Tito Ortiz’s larynx, insane workouts, sweet knockouts and much more.

Front Line

Ronda Rousey was spotted applying for her concealed carry permit with boyfriend Travis Browne in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be 90 days before she gets the license. Meanwhile, “Rowdy” spent some downtime at the range shooting a Glock 9mm, part of her training to get the permit, according to TMZ.

That will be much too late for her role in the Resistance. That’s right- Ronda Rousey has been spotted with protesters at Standing Rock, protesting Trump’s decision to continue the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Referee “Big John” McCarthy revealed that Tito Ortiz didn’t get away completely scot-free for holding onto his choke of Chael Sonnen in Bellator 170’s main event (watch highlights) for too long.

When you are a former cop who has been in this game since the early days, you know a trick or three.

Donald Cerrone really opened up on this Luke Thomas Show segment on the money he makes acting and his plans after fighting.

Of his involvment in MMAAA, he says,

“I think we need retirement, a pension, some kind of healthcare ... those are my arguments. If I were who I am, in any other sport, my pension would be great ... same thing with some kind of retirement. Also some kind of health care, something we can do where I’ve got health care for now and forever.”

He riffed about his financial plans, saying he has a 401K and a financial planning company he works with. He mentioned he makes a minimum $1,600 a day as an actor, but is keeping his cards close to his chest on future roles.

“Oh, I can’t say. That’s the problem with the movies, you can’t talk about them until they are out.”

He did reveal that he is flying to Cuba to film “one of the all-time greatest movies- everyone’s seen it, they are remaking it, so it’s gonna be awesome!” but can’t give away which one. He does, however, enjoy the stunt work.

“Wait a minute ... you are telling me you are going to pay me to flip that car that’d I’d do for fun?? Deal! Know what I mean?”

Rampage is getting roasted by King Mo on Instagram.

One of the best qualities of Rampage is how relatable he can be, and this clip is no exception.

I love puppies.. but they can be annoying sometimes

With the Unified Rules no more, here are what upcoming events are under the new rules and the ones that aren’t:

Gym Nonsense

This looks like a great way to get hurt ahead of Vitor Belfort’s scheduled bout with Kelvin Gastelum

This guy might be even more of a maniac, though.

Not in the least sure what is going on here. Blame Angela Hill for retweeting it.

How to make a girl fall head over heels for with you ...

First, you might need to know how to pick up a girl at the gym.

Might want to avoid trying that with these girls, though. They can hurt you.

Slips, Rips and Knockout Clips

Apparently, the Kung Fu World Cup is a thing and it looks basically like MMA. Who knew?

This would be the ideal outcome of McGregor-Mayweather.

I discovered that in this article by Matt Juul.

Looking forward to Masvidal-Cerrone this weekend!
