Welcome to Midnight Mania!
He might have been on a high after meeting Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time, but Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar told TMZ today that Conor McGregor could very well run for political office someday. In his words:
Ah, you never know, stranger things have happened. Just met Arnold Schwarzenegger, so... yeah, he was a muscleman actor, career in politics after, and was a good governor! So, anything’s possible.
This is something “Notorious” has expressed interest in, hinting at it on Instagram in February. Fellow Irish MMA fighter Joe Duffy, who submitted McGregor back on the regional scene, isn’t a big fan of the idea, saying McGregor’s brash personality would be at odds with the humble Irish working class.
Apparently the Irish prime minister had a second opinion. He has broken the mold in politics himself, having been both the youngest prime minister in Irish history and the first to be not only an ethnic minority, but openly gay.
Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold have been feuding on social media today. Luke Rockhold tweeted this picture ...
... But he should have known the response Bisping would have. Probably a dozen fans had posted this GIF at him before Bisping got around to it.
good one dipshit. But remember when I knocked you out cold, took your belt and you cried like a little bitch? In fact that's probably a little hazy for you. See attached and have a great day numb nuts. pic.twitter.com/RE3Waq3MtZ— michael (@bisping) March 14, 2018
Wow, I'm impressed! You wrote a sentence with multiple syllable words. Good for you. #dumbfuck— michael (@bisping) March 14, 2018
Mighty Mouse is inspiring young fighters ... but not all can do what he did.
UFC lightweight prospect and dedicated fisherman Gregor Gillespie practicing his shots. Who did it better — him or the kid?
Ngannou is back ... but who should he fight next?

So true. Yoel Romero can try that with this particular dog, though. I’m gonna just stay away.
This meme is perfect for MMA!
Movie level choreography — why doesn’t Sage Northcutt use this one?
Well that's one way to counter a takedown attempt! pic.twitter.com/y5ntNpvUK4— The MMA Bible (@TheMMABible) March 11, 2018
Rory Macdonald wants to fight the winner of Gegard Mousasi vs. Rafael Carvalho for the Bellator middleweight belt.
Brian Kelleher vs. John Lineker is a great fight booking.

Really, really old wrestling clip.
Here is what wrestling looked like circa 1920. This is Stecher defending his world title against Earl Caddock in a match that lasted over two hours. https://t.co/GSlTCFvaCo— JE Snowden (@JESnowden) March 11, 2018
Nate Diaz is really milking that moment in the sun.
Slips, Rips, KO Clips
This fight is crazy!
Seiichiro Ito spins for an armbar, doesn't get it and seems to have injured his ankle. He drops Nobutaka again then immediately locks in his signature submission, the ninja choke, for the finish pic.twitter.com/M10ipX5geE— MEGATON (@BasedDongeezus) March 13, 2018
This is a great move:

She got hit and was like, nah, screw this.

Alright that’s a gorgeous armbar.
- Max Holloway is the one who knocks. This read is worth it for the “Breaking Bad” reference alone.
- WMMA expert Schwan Humes takes a deep dive into the skillset of the woman who beat Heather Hardy in Bellator, Kristina Williams.
- ... how, Gus? Alexander Gustafsson says DC is taking the safer route by fighting Stipe Miocic instead of him.
I love this dude because he's just like "IT'S A LIVING!" pic.twitter.com/e4NvJEzxps— Bee (@BeckyEbben) March 13, 2018
Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76, his family confirmed. One of the most extraordinary and revered scientists of our time, he was given two years to live in 1963 ... I would say he far surpassed the doctor’s expectations.
