Midnight Mania! Derrick Lewis continues to troll Travis Browne, Ronda Rousey on Instagram

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

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Lewis vs Browne Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we’ve got Derrick Lewis adding insult to injury when it comes to Travis Browne and his girlfriend Ronda Rousey, Mario Yamasaki and new commentator Todd Grisham coming under criticism, Conor McGregor working the bag, knockouts, memes, artwork, podcasts and much more.


“Black Beast” will not let up. As if knocking out Travis Browne and calling for his girl was not enough, he has to roast Browne on social media. When you believe the rumors about the domestic violence allegations against Browne, as Derrick Lewis does, perhaps you feel justified in posting this:

Lewis wasn’t the only one. The memes were everywhere ... and they were brutal.

What is next for Browne after this “Fight of the Night” loss?

My personal favorite was this replay of the final moments, with Edmond Tarverdyan’s voice overlayed on the track:

Lewis wasn’t the only one posting. Matt Mitrione, fresh off of passing kidney stones that took him out of his Fight for Fedor’s Sweater, retweeted this old highlight:

What is next for “Black Beast,” whose continued evolution has led him to six straight wins?

Bobs and Weaves

Literal bobs and weaves from Conor McGregor, who Freddie Roach is claiming Mayweather advised him to train.

I was impressed overall by new UFC commentator Todd Grisham performed in his first UFC commentary role, but I missed this:

Perhaps that’s why Rogan seemed to have some criticisms:

Speaking of criticisms, Mario Yamasaki came under fire for letting Browne take way too many punches before finally stepping in.

Even kickboxer Joseph Valtellini took advantage to advertise his brand.

This must have been awkward:

Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is getting work in with the Serra-Longo gym:

The scuttlebutt is that Stipe faces Junior dos Santos in a rematch at UFC 211 in Dallas. dos Santos, meanwhile, is talking about a fourth fight with Cain Velasquez. Please, please, please ... no.

Sweet pencil artwork:

At least Elias has a sense of humor about these things. At least he squeaked out a win, after all.

Old highlights are still awesome:

I remember this head-body sequence from watching The Fighter with Mark Wahlberg and Cristian Bale. I had never seen the source KO by Mickey Ward:

Ward vs Sanchez KO

Micky Ward had lost all 6 rounds & had been dropped by Alfonso Sanchez. What happened next left the commentary team in absolute disbelief
