Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Joe Rogan and Deontay Wilder went in on Anthony Joshua on Joe Rogan’s podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience. They were discussing Wilder’s recent fight, a split draw against Tyson Fury (watch the incredible highlight), in which Fury got up from what seemed a sure knockout by Fury to make it to the final bell. Rogan mentioned that the fight and the rematch on track to do so well makes UK heavyweight superstar Anthony Joshua look bad:

Rogan: It’s gonna be incredible. And it puts Anthony Joshua in a terrible situation- terrible! He looks awful.

Wilder: Oh, they beggin’ now.

Rogan: He looks terrible. He’s gonna fight some other guy, and no one gives a fuck. And it’s like, your titles, whatever titles you got, they’re bullshit! They don’t mean anything! Everybody knows this is where the real title is! It’s a wrap now.

Wilder went on to say that Joshua’s people were reaching out to his people, and pointed out that Joshua could have had the fight- against either himself or Fury- had he wanted it.

You can watch the full podcast below, in which Deontay starts off talking about his grandma telling him he was the chosen one as a child.

Perfect time to bring this old Fedor Emelianenko meme back: Tyson Fury fits it perfectly.

Took me a second to see it...

The hatred Dana White has for Tyron Woodley makes little sense, but this idea from Woodley does make some sense.

Speaking of welterweight things that make no sense: who thought Sage Northcutt was ready for Santiago Ponzinibbio??

A little artistic liberty and Alex Oliveira could make his forehead stitches into an “A” for his first name.

At least it wasn’t Tenshin Nasukawa Linares knocked down in sparring...

McDojoLife took their page private, last I checked, but Joe Rogan still gets a kick out of this stuff.

Slips, Rips, KO Clips

Dan Hooker somehow manages to finish opponents without doing anything spectacular- he recalls an early Chris Weidman in that way

Sometimes its just a matter of pressure

That’s a mean left hook

This sport never fails to show me new wrinkles on things
