Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s young fan explains why she’s so into MMA and how she came to wear the traditional papakha given to her by Khabib. It turns out she has been to a LOT of UFC events, starting at five years old.
People always ask how I became such a huge mma fan at such a young age so I thought I would share my story. Hopefully this answers any questions and explains my love for the sport and my appreciation to everyone who supports the sport .#ufc #khabibtime #UFC25YEARS pic.twitter.com/onntFlZnF1— Mini Khabib (@Mini_Khabib) April 25, 2018

I’m happy Nick Newell gets a shot on Dana White’s Contender Series.
Nick Newell is getting the shot he has long desired. Dana White has an extended an offer to compete on his Contender Series show this summer. A win there would open the door to a UFC debut. First reported by @bokamotoESPN.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 26, 2018
Here’s @NotoriousNewell’s first comments on the deal, provided to @mmafighting:— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 26, 2018
“I want to thank Dana White, Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard for believing in me and giving me a shot. I still have to go out there and deliver. I'm grateful for the opportunity.”
