Midnight Mania! McGregor hires new lawyer Bruce Mafeo of ‘Cozen O’Conor’ to represent him

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

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Gdansk-Lobov vs Fili Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The week that was crazier than fiction keeps dropping gems, like the fact that McGregor has parted ways with his normal attorney and hired one named Bruce Mafeo. That’s right, Bruce Mafeo is a real name of a real lawyer in New York City.

This can’t be real. “Cozen” means to trick or deceive, so McGregor is literally hiring someone whose firm is named “the trick of Conor.”

Bruce Mafeo is, fortunately, accustomed to dealing with cases that aren’t normal.

I’m wishing all the best for Bruce Mafeo of Cozen O’Conor.


Holly Holm vs. Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson is a great matchup, but a dangerous one for Megan, who is pretty much the only up-and-coming featherweight to challenge Cris Cyborg’s dominance over the division.

Please, yes.

Now this is a commentator having fun. Mauro Ranallo is great.

Jon Jones celebrates siblings day with his arguably even more talented brothers.

Now I’m just hungry

Nick Newell is right.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk doesn’t seem to be taking her loss TOO hard.

Watch out, Vasyl Lomachenko. Jorge Linares is not playing around.

The Zuckerberg testimony was comedic on many levels, but also Facebook is potentially destroying our democracy, so anyway here’s a jiu-jitsu meme about it.

Once Zucc obtains martial arts skills its game over for us. #getzucced

Congrats Jesse. You made it into the memes.

That didn’t take long.

Today on Twitter a rumor got started about the new broadcast deal the UFC is supposedly striking. Only... it came from an anonymous person, mmalogic, on an MMA message board. If it turns out to be true, that would be the most MMA-typical event since last week when UFC 223 went off the rails.

McGregor making a cameo in Cat Zingano’s walkout was one of the first moments where I began to realize he was everywhere.

I’m kinda looking forward to this

This is the Muay Thai shark-tank clinch work that makes champions.

Zabit Magomedosharipov is more or less a modern Russian ninja, who actually studied kung fu and went to a real-life full time martial arts academy as a child.
