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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Michael Bisping has officially retired from MMA, so it’s time to revisit his odd encounter with Georges St. Pierre in a bathroom before a press conference. He spoke about it on the Joe Rogan Experience. Transcript via

“I go to the bathroom and who comes next to the bathroom with us, it’s Michael Bisping! There is the camera that follow us in the bathroom. We’re taking a piss next to each other, we’re like this (puts hands on hips). Then, I turn around and see Michael Bisping. I’m like, ‘Oh, holy shit!’ Then I told him, I say, ‘Hey, you got a Range Rover?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, but now it’s in the garage.’ I’m like,’ Yeah, you need to get rid of it because after a while it start breaking down.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I know... ok, gameface. See you later.’ (laughs),”

This is the kind of small, human moment you would want to know about if you were ever making a movie about either guy. And, while it’s pretty awkward that the cameras followed them into the bathroom, but that does make me wonder: does the footage for this still exist?

The candid car advice also reminds me of a certain executive telling another former UFC champion his luxury SUV was “a piece of shit”.

GSP’s victory over Bisping at UFC 217 netted him his second UFC belt. He’s not interested in fighting for money any more, but getting a third belt at lightweight might just tempt him back to the sport. If he does return at 155, Khabib Nurmagomedov is waiting.


New highlights of the Darren Till vs. Stephen Thompson fight have emerged

The fight wasn’t fast-paced, but the memes have been nonstop:

Nick Diaz’ booking shot looks like Nick Diaz, all right.

Now my life will never be complete now until I wrestle a tiger!

Lomachenko boxed eight rounds with a popped shoulder and still knocked out Linares?

Why did the cop go for the arm bar here, though? Just keep top position.

That’s how you get out a arm bar

Justin Golightly did something so great it made me wonder why no one had done it before: He wrote the mythology of the MMA Fighters who were larger than life, starting with Sea Level Cain, Chuck Liddell ‘with that look in his eye’, and Motivated B.J. Penn. They started as real life history, then Internet legends, but Justin has turned them into bonafide MMA myths.

Ilir Latifi got a serious videographer for this one:

Elias Theodorou really enjoyed being face swapped with Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi, who is honest to a fault:
