Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

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.


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.

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.

How I hope to be in my 80s

83 years old RESPECT !!!
