Midnight Mania! Jon Jones the fighter finally gets a tweet meant for Jon Jones the game designer

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

Jon Jones

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

For years now, Jon Jones the game designer has been getting tweets meant for Jon Jones, the fighter. He’s acted as Jon’s internet spam filter, especially when Jon messes up, as has happened numerous times over the years.

Today, though, the tables turned for once, and “Bones” made it into a hilarious joke.

From what I can tell, Jason Dake was trolling here- he knows which Jon Jones he’s tweeting.

But Bones rolled with the joke, tagging Jon Jones, who for some reason he has kept blocked for the past five years.

Seeing tweets go to the right guy for once was incredibly satisfying for Jon Jones.


Mike Perry is a fictional character.

For reference, this is what he is talking about- the cognitive conditioning Santiago Ponzinibbio has been doing with Nic Davenport.

This is genuinely scary.

Some fight schedule updates- I hope Doo Ho Choi vs. Jeremy Stephens gets five rounds to play out, but Kamaru Usman and Emil Meek is a great fight as well.

It may be tame in the era of Trump, but Dana White jumping into the random conversations of internet nobodies is still peak Dana White.

Dustin Poirier has the important questions:

Robbie Lawler on why he’s not tried for a submission in the past twenty fights or so:

This is the CM Punk fight that actually makes sense- Mike Jackson (whose blog I used to contribute content to) is the guy Mickey Gall had to fight to get to CM Punk in the first place.

Here’s a video I never asked for: GSP was asked about the first time he had sex. His expression says it all.

This is what Dana White pictures in his head whenever fighters ask for more pay.

Kenny Florian’s trash talk wasn’t what got him his title shots, that’s for sure.

It took me a second while scrolling to realize what was off about this picture.
