Welcome to Midnight Mania!
On the doubters:
On the price of the PPV:
“It should be $120!”
On Mayweather not paying his taxes:
“That’s gotta sting. I don’t give a fuck what he did. I don’t give a fuck ... he should have stayed retired. He’s fucked now, and that’s the God’s honest truth. He should have paid his taxes and stayed retired, and kept my name out of his mouth.”
Everyone wants a crack at Justin Gaethje now- but he’s especially down to fight Eddie Alvarez. Real respects real.
Rematch Poirier sounds fun.. Fight w@Justin_Gaethje might be even better .. Battle 4 America's Most Violent ...What do You fans Want lmk??— Eddie Alvarez (@Ealvarezfight) July 10, 2017
Amanda Nunes’ explanation about removing herself from UFC 213’s main event this past weekend didn’t keep her from getting thrown under the bus by her own promoter, Dana White, who is the archetypal jerk boss. Nunes’ manager had some choice words for him.
Speaking of warriors respecting each other ...
Kelvin Gastelum is right that Gegard Mousasi to Bellator means one less guy to worry about -- Middleweight is an aging division, so guys like Gastelum are poised to be at the top for a long time just by default. Gastelum faces Chris Weidman at UFC on Fox 25 on July 22
Fabricio Werdum gets paid six figures by a guy who rounds up homosexuals for concentration camps? That doesn’t seem good.
Man... that’s a lot of taxes.
So, If this is correct, and my math is correct, for his 2 fights in 2015 and this fight in 2017, Floyd is looking at 160 million in taxes https://t.co/p82ht544LD— profloumoore (@loumoore12) July 10, 2017
Frankie Edgar seems to be getting the next title shot ... and Cub Swanson isn’t happy about it.
When I lost to Frankie he got my title fight and he lost it. So that doesn't mean he gets another one over— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) July 10, 2017
My last 4 fights I won. 3 were ranked opponents and one wasn't. Just helping the keyboard warriors get their facts straight— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) July 10, 2017
Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne will never squash their beef.
