Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we’ve got Georges St-Pierre hinting that he may be fighting at Madison Square Garden, Tony Ferguson the Super Saiyan, Jorge Masvidal blasting Michael Bisping, a 13 year old beating a 34 year old in mixed martial arts (MMA), knockouts, headlines from today, and much more!
What towel is he twirling?!?!?!
Big thanks @NYRangers for inviting me & Erik Owings @TheGarden for the game tonight! I could be fighting here in a few months... Can’t wait! pic.twitter.com/xfP8tiQueU— Georges St-Pierre (@GeorgesStPierre) May 2, 2017
Georges St-Pierre has been unable to nail down a date for his dance with Michael Bisping yet, but while we are waiting on the “when,” he gave a clue as to a possible “where.” While Canadiens fans may be offended by his choice of Rangers-related paraphernalia here, he says he may be fighting in Madison Square Garden “in a few months.” That could mean late this summer or early fall. Madison Square Garden is an appropriate venue for a fight involving St-Pierre, and surely many of his fellow Canadians would make the trek down to New York City in support. Assuming the fight is still against Bisping, that would also be one flight away for many of the Middleweight champion’s British supporters.

Tony Ferguson is hungry!

Felice Herrig admits there is a devil inside her.
I know people think carbs are the devil. But I eat A LOT of carbs !! I guess that means there's a devil inside me— Felice Herrig (@feliceherrig) May 2, 2017
Jorge Masvidal is not holding back on his hot takes these days, and this isn’t the first shot he’s taken at Michael Bisping.

Raymond Daniels with the most extra counter to a leg kick of all time.
#Repost @shanefazen with @repostapp ・・・ You asked to bring the FIGHT LIKE series back, so we got one of the best kickboxers in the world: Raymond Daniels (@rd_goat), thanks to our @daveandbusters collaboration! I just want to thank Raymond again for opening his doors to us, being such a pleasure to work with, and dropping knowledge bombs on us. His kicks are frightening, but luckily for me his control is impeccable! Full video coming soon! #Kickboxing | @bellatormma | @bellatorkb | #Karate | #Taekwondo | #HeadKick | #fightTIPS
You know that 12 year old who’s going to fight an adult? Well, time is a flat circle, especially in Japanese MMA. This has happened before, and guess what? The 13 year old won!
Here is the fight that Yamaguchi-Sensei refers to where 13 year old Yukari fought fought a 34 year old and wonhttps://t.co/5B2abMgEj2— charlie (@cjsreport) May 1, 2017
Pro Fight League (formerly WSOF) has the best ring girls, apparently.

Dominick Cruz meeting Sabertooth has me thinking of a movie scene ...
This is more or less how Dominick Cruz fights, and more or less how he lost to Garbrandt. (More or less)
New episode of @AlistairOvereem's "The Reem" documentary is out. Looks at UFC 209 vs Mark Hunt. Enjoyable as always. https://t.co/o84MSR0yNO— Mike Bohn (@MikeBohnMMA) May 2, 2017

Slips, Rips, and Knockout Clips
Joanna is the greatest female mixed martial artist competing today, while Jessica Andrade is a credible threat to her reign. In other words, looking forward to UFC 211’s co-main event!
I forgot that Demian Maia was fighting at UFC 211 because it’s actually too deep. The question is, will he meet the same fate Jacare met against Whittaker, or will he do this again?

I have a friend who spent a lot of time explaining how you can just spin and keep it going in a fight. It seems he was onto something.
Who remember this from street fighter? pic.twitter.com/fVWszIMa2J— Thirty Sec Fights (@ThirtySecFights) May 2, 2017
This right here is why I don’t get into street fights.

This is the best I’ve seen a block work in a street fight. He caught the bicep to stop the hook. That’s the kind of centerline control Wing Chun talks about.
DAMNNNN at least he helped him after pic.twitter.com/Unq0gy0THN— Fight Videos (@FunnyBrawls) May 3, 2017
- Artem Lobov wants a fight with the Korean Superboy, and after seeing that his chin is pure titanium against Swanson, I’m completely fine with that.
- Champions.co did a promo video to show you Derrick Lewis’ sophisticated side. It’s predictably hilarious.
- An ACB event got canceled in Russia because of ethnic and political tension. Karim Zidan has the full story.
- Chuck Liddell is thinking of coming back? Let’s not do this. Let’s please not do this.
