Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we have highlights of Mackenzie Dern winning her third straight fight at LFA 6, Daniel Cormier making injury jokes, knockouts, submissions, and much more.
#LFA6 RESULTS: @MackenzieDern def. Katherine Roy via Unanimous Decision. @LFAfighting @AXSTVFights @BensonHenderson pic.twitter.com/A40xiXpwMk— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) March 11, 2017
Mackenzie Dern has been drawing news lately for rejecting comparisons to Ronda Rousey, who she says was never a role model. She is, however, an undefeated prospect with insane submission skills who got her most recent win tonight at Legacy Fighting Alliance 6. It was a unanimous decision win, but might have some pumping the brakes on the Dern hype train, as she couldn’t make 115 and had to get her opponent to agree to a 120-lb catchweight fight.

This moment was particularly notable for the incredible striking on display. This is basically a “caption me” challenge.

And you know the Internet stepped up to the plate with the replies.
Beautiful. MAKE HER MISS!!! MISS!! MISS!! MISS!!! HEAD MOVEMENT!!!!!!!' @CoachEdmund https://t.co/wM7Ur0nZKD— FrontRowBrian (@FrontRowBrian) March 11, 2017
@FrontRowBrian extremely effective technique. Makes it impossible to get hit. Only defense to it is to do it right back to the opponent.— Coach Edmund (@CoachEdmund) March 11, 2017

Bobs and Weaves
Come on, “DC.” Don’t mess with us like that. Especially not when we have been told Cain Velasquez doesn’t even train much anymore and won’t be fighting for a while.
Tony Ferguson has his own kind of training regime.
Mark Hunt looks pretty happy with his family, recent knockout loss and current litigation against his promoters notwithstanding.

Enjoy these, the first of the weekend’s combat sports spoils.

The only thing worse than early stoppages are late stoppages.

There is something amazing about watching someone just jam an elbow into someone else’s face hard enough to knock them unconscious.

Damien Maia should be the next title challenger, but instead he’s fighting Masvidal on an already-stacked UFC 211 for his troubles.
- Remember that Khabib Nurmagomedov retiring early talk? Well, it could be happening... right now.
