Midnight Mania! Mike Perry says he’s 2% African so he’s allowed to say the n-word

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

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Winnipeg-Ponzinibbio vs Perry Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

“Platinum” Mike Perry is the epitome of The Florida Man, always saying and doing crazy, cringe, or downright dumb stuff. None are more cringeworthy than this latest announcement: He says that because he took a DNA test that found he is 2 percent African, he is “legally allowed” to say the n-word.

I really have nothing else to say about this.


I’m not sure what Nate Diaz expects Georges St-Pierre to clear up -- confess to the cheating the Diaz brothers think he did in Montreal? Slipping him a Mickey? Does this mean Nate WON’T fight him unless he “clears that shit up?”

Mackenzie Dern missing weight by seven pounds surprised me, only because I thought she was already fighting at Flyweight ... she definitely needs to move up after this. That’s disgraceful.

Amanda Cooper was NOT happy about it.

Angela Hill explained why this didn’t make any sense.

This meme is appropriately savage for the weird Yair Rodriguez cutting by Dana White.

I saw this fight in person, and I’m not sure why you would ever cut this guy. No one on the roster is throwing these kicks.

This is truly an amazing face swap. I didn’t even realize it was Rich ‘Ace’ Franklin rather than Ace Ventura.

The only solution to America’s drug problems ...

This is awesome!

The way this guy was twitching afterward is not okay.

The next Bruce Buffer is Russian!

The Battle on Volga 4 was a great MMA card all told:
