Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Nick Diaz weighed in on the Woodley-Till fight that went down this past weekend at UFC 228. In his estimation, it seems he thought Woodley took an easy fight in the form of Darren Till. It certainly ended up a one-sided bout, with Till landing barely a strike before succumbing to ground-and-pound and a Woodley choke in the second round.

“I missed the whole fight ... I’ve never had an easy fight in my life. Fight that kid ... I wouldn’t take one. It’s like ... stop making bullshit fights with this guy!”

Diaz hasn’t had a fight since his 2015 Middleweight bout with Anderson Silva. He hasn’t had a win in the Octagon since 2011. Could we see the former Strikeforce Welterweight champion make his return to mixed martial arts (MMA) in the near future? He was recently cleared of a domestic violence charge, and has stated plans to return in 2019 after being serving a trumped-up suspension for weed use.


Insomnia

A lot of fighters were happy to see Tyron Woodley win in impressive fashion:

Sorry, “Wonderboy.” Despite the draw and majority decision, no one wants to see this a third time.

C.M. Punk was also happy to see him win:

What a photograph!

This could get interesting

Karolina Kowalkiewicz issued a statement to her fans after her knockout loss to nigh-unstoppable Strawweight force Jessica Andrade.

This made me chuckle:

The Chosen One!

Nicco Montano, naturally, was not at all happy with UFC or Shevchenko after her belt was summarily stripped from her this weekend.

Worth noting:

Till is already planning his comeback. Also, he doesn’t like Snoop Dogg.

This is a very weird Texas rule I didn’t know about.

Just a few highlights from the weekend:

This was some knockout! The spinning elbow trumped the spinning backfist.

Woah!

Also ... sumo is back.

I want MMA on a raised dais:

UFC 228’s “Prelims” brought the fire, too:
