Midnight Mania! Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta get into it on Twitter

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! It’s Friday again, and you know what that means- lots of knockouts. The fighting weekend is here, and bringing the good violence with it. Oh, plus we’ve got Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta getting itchy Twitter-fingers, Felice Herrig getting nasty with the tumeric and ginger, college wrestlers slapping, putting each other through tables, and much more.


Arguing on the Internet

Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta both hit pretty hard. Only one of them, however, got a bonus at UFC Fight Night 108, and that has led to quite the Twitter feud.

It seems to have started when Perry quoted Al’s “Fuck you” tweet to the UFC with some condescension.

Iaquinta hit back... with positivity.

What do you think? Would this be a good fight for either guy’s career, or is it just more noise online?

Felice Herrig getting lit!

I didn’t know real wrestling involved tables or slaps.

Daniel Cormier says he would have slapped him too.

This is unbelievably creepy.

This is pretty cool though.

Johnson vs. Klitscho will be fun.

Tyson Fury, nearly a hundred pounds over the heavyweight limit, is trying to make a comeback.

This is how old-school Heavyweight champ Joe Louis trained:

Angela Hill hitting pads:

You wouldn’t think women with h


Slips, Rips, and Knockout Clips

Maybe it was the training regimen. Ali B was like, Happy Birthday to the ground! And Tyson Nam replied, I knocked the rest of the fighter down too. No? Okay. Never mind. Just watch him throwing rocks at the earth.

Russians are weird.

Meanwhile, in European MMA...

I had never seen this before.

I had seen this one though.

This was casual.
