Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Its no secret why Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather were fighting. The fight was always about money, and they made a lot of it. With the global total buys topping 6.5 million (if we are really believing anything Dana White says about Pay-Per-View (PPV) numbers) then it broke the all-time PPV record.

Floyd thinks he will go down in the Guiness book of World Records for the feat, which probably puts his career earnings over the billion-dollar mark, and improves his record to 50-0. All of that, gained in a bout with a loquacious Irishman from another sport, in Conor McGregor, who didn’t have a single professional boxing fight.

No wonder he’s proud of it, and no wonder he’s calling it a heist. It was the perfect final caper for “Money” Mayweather.


The real Jon Jones is a very chill dude, who happens to be a talented game developer. As the other Jon Jones runs into more and more problems, his life just gets weirder and weirder, but this is one of the few areas where his professional talents coincide with his Twitter handle.

Rory Macdonald also claimed Robbie Lawler was on steroids in their epic Fight of the Year at UFC 189, but this Reddit AMA was still pretty cool.

This take is too hot to handle

Mike Perry tried to claim he is the American version of McGregor and the internet wasn’t having it.

The only good way to react to Angela Magana getting another fight in the UFC.

John Dodson vs. Marlon Moraes? That one is awesome.

If you don’t like Gennady Golovkin, I don’t know what to tell you. Big drama show!

Another throwback. I had never seen this from Patricky Pitbull.

Despite common misconception, Muay Thai isn’t a stylistic monolith. There are as many different styles as there are in boxing, or kickboxing, or even striking styles in MMA
