Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Khabib Nurmagomedov thinks Cain Velasquez should stop talking about the WWE and focus on his long-awaited UFC comeback.
Let’s go @officialcainvelasquez it’s not @wwe it’s #MMA bro, be ready, @ufc fans waiting for you, stop talking about fake #wwe trainig. #realfighter #ufcfighter #ufc #mma #wwe #CainVelasquez#2timeufcheawyweightchampion
This is the tweet Khabib was referencing:
In other news, Khabib standing next to Cain Velasquez looks massive ahead of his lightweight title fight at UFC 223 with Tony Ferguson, a fight that has already been booked and cancelled three times due to injuries and failed weight cuts.
Hopefully his injury-prone heavyweight teammate can muster his own comeback soon.

If you see a man in full charge from a 3 point stance, storming the cage to reach you and your thoughts are “He’s probably just coming in hot for the high five.” You need to reassess what the fuck you’re doing in that cage.
Nothing funny about this business.
Belal Muhammad and Paul Felder try putting on their own WWE-style drama.
Joe Rogan has crazy friends... but also I want to do this.
My friend @andystumpf212 is fucking crazy. #Repost @andystumpf212 ・・・ Wingsuit Wednesday from the Lauterbrunnen valley. Notice the checking and re-checking of gear, the shuffling of feet, and ridiculous breathing. It’s called fear, and we all have it, or at least you do if your not a sociopath. The only variable is whether or not you let it govern your behavior. @killcliff @gatorzeyewear @511tactical @roguefitness
This is me on the heavy bag too:
Fabricio Werdum clarifies his comments about doing pro wrestling.
Hey guys to make it clear I spoke about maybe doing Lucha libre in México. Not WWE. I meant wwe style(pro wrestling) but I am a @ufc fighter and my focus 100% is fighting in the ufc and whatever decision I make after my fighting career @danawhite @Mickmaynard2 will be involved.— Fabricio Werdum (@FabricioWerdum) March 7, 2018
Great heavyweight fight for young prospect Curtis Blaydes.
I had this reaction too
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone doing his thing. That’s a pretty sweet over-under shotgun he’s got.
Delayed reaction KO by Terrion Ware.

Who would have possibly guessed? The truly amazing part is how a guy with this much on his record has managed to gain the trust of so many high-level MMA fighters.
Just got Ali Abdelaziz's rap sheet from 2000-2004. No way NSAC did an FBI fingerprint check on him. Charges include counterfeiting, forgery, criminal impersonation, check & credit card fraud, assault (felony x2, aggravated x1, simple x2) burglary, auto theft, fraud & harassment.— Mike Russell (@MIKERUSSELLMMA) March 7, 2018
How I hope to be in my 80s
He threw up right in the guy’s face. Chemical defense.
Look how small Yoel Romero is next to Shaquille O’Neal.
Robert Whittaker family photos are evidently going well.
- Andre Soukhamthath is still getting called the dumbest fighter in UFC history. It is worth pointing out he was still concussed after taking a beating in the first round. Credit to him for not letting the mistake he admits he made get to him.
- It’s criminal that Darren Till hasn’t fought since his knockout win over Cowboy Cerrone; hopefully the UFC can get him booked soon. He’s got an opponent and a date in mind.
