Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Add Rony Jason to the long list of current and former UFC fighters who have a record of violence against women. As reported by BloodyElbow.com, he can be seen in the above video punching a grounded woman and shouting down at her after others pull him off her.
Jason has an explosive temper; after his loss to Jeremy Stephens, he put his fist through a wall and had to get stitches at the hospital. Assaulting a grounded woman is obviously not justifiable under any circumstances, and being a professional fighter only makes it worse.
Rony Jason has gone 0-3 in his latest UFC run, with one no contest. It is not known if he is even still under contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. They have not issued a statement as yet on his behavior.
Doesn’t look like McGregor is all too concerned about the results this weekend
This fight is going to be awesome. Rountree called out Saki after his last win, and its the perfect stylistic matchup to guarantee fireworks.
The Rebel Saki has a new date. December is going to be good. First UFC 218 with yours truly and then UFC 219. Great month for combat fans. pic.twitter.com/j4ZybVZD1w— Alistair Overeem (@Alistairovereem) October 9, 2017
Ian McCall said he has no problem taking blood money from Ramzan Kadyrov. That’s...certainly... a stance to take.
McCall knows how bad it sounds. Evidently he doesn’t care.
God I sound like an asshole some/most of the time ... https://t.co/O7fpLqWPRQ— Ian McCall (@Unclecreepymma) October 9, 2017
Walt Harris is a good sport after stepping up and getting tapped by Werdum in seconds

Poor Will Brooks. Reminder: the UFC is not contractually obligated to pay their fighters if the opponent pulls out, even if the fighter is ready to go and fulfilled all their requirements.
12 weeks... 12 f*cking weeks of sacrifice and suffering. Just to be here and watch everyone else compete. #highlydisappointed— Will Brooks (@ILLxWillBrooks) October 7, 2017

If you don’t know who Darren Till is ahead of his main event slot against Cowboy Cerrone, here’s an introduction. His English trash talk is fantastic against Mike Perry. “Cos I like ye” is the greatest line I’ve read this weekend.
Ain't no one taking my 0 son, gonna need you and the whole welterweight division together in the cage to do that— Darren Till (@darrentill2) October 8, 2017
Cos I like ye— Darren Till (@darrentill2) October 8, 2017
I'll do whatever the fuck I want you little midget— Darren Till (@darrentill2) October 8, 2017

I hope Derrick Lewis recovers well

"I can't move," Lewis wrote. "I’m feeling the same pain in my back that I felt before the Mark Hunt fight."
Dealing with two bulging discs. His team tells me he tried his best to fight through it. He's devastated. More coming to @MMAFighting.
Cody Garbrandt and Justin Gaethje are training together
Good social media work, UFC. Well done.

It is rare to see Muay Thai fighters just exchanging head punches like this
A reminder: this fight rocked and a draw just means I want to see the rematch. Lando Vannata and Bobby Green threw down!
Bobby Green vs. Lando Vannata ends in a DRAW! Can we get a rematch at UFC 217? Fight of the night perhaps? https://t.co/ZnzGtuFdQ2— FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) October 8, 2017
