Midnight Mania! Tito Ortiz films UFO, which turns out to be Elon Musk’s spaceship

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

We live in strange times.

Tito Ortiz, like most of us, was caught unaware by this... comet? UFO?

No, actually, it’s just a billionaire’s launch of his private spaceship.

That’s right, Elon Musk’s SpaceX was firing a rocket that carried ten satellites into orbit. Known as the Falcon 9, the rocket launched was part of a space tech upgrade for the communications firm Iridium.

Tito was not the only celebrity surprised by this event; Tony Hawk and Don Cheadle weren’t sure what to make of the spindle-shaped object in the sky either.

Elon himself stole tomorrow’s Infowars headline:

No one tell Georges. St. Pierre.


An illustrated version of that Francis Ngannou fan poster? Cool.

Roy Nelson needs to be careful or he is going to shed that gut, #bellyrubapproved or not.

Edson Barboza, like his UFC 219 opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov, has been doing combat sports for a long time.

Don’t be coy, Cyborg.

If you haven’t seen this by now, you don’t follow Dana White

Speaking of Dana White, this is some cool art he’s posting.

Cub Swanson came in on his day off to hit pads with his baby daughter!

Chad Mendes is still ridiculously fast.

There are always combat sports happening somewhere in the world.

It looks like mixing up the left kick and left straight worked really well in this fight.
