Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Jason Knight is really dedicated to this whole bare knuckle boxing thing, huh? The submission ace is set to rematch Artem Lobov at Bare Knuckle FC 9 this Saturday (Nov. 16, 2019), but it appears that Knight has managed to find time for extra curricular training as well.
The video above is posted by “Contender Series” vet Brok Weaver, and somehow, he posted a second, different video with sound to his Twitter account. Check it out:
It’s unclear from either of Weaver’s videos when exactly this altercation took place, but hopefully it was at least a couple weeks ago, otherwise Knight may be carrying some damage with him into the ring. Although based on the last fight between Knight and Lobov, he’s going to walk away with a shredded face anyway.
All’s well that ends well?
Only if the referee is Colby Covington.
... And here’s Tai Tuivasa absorbing a slightly hard shot from his training partner.
Jorge Masvidal believes Conor McGregor wants no part of him.
People are starting to get really excited for something that seems incredibly unlikely to me ...

The Gypsy King in the @ufc? Why not? If someone from the boxing world would be successful in this, it would be him. The training videos with @darrentill2 says it all, well to me anyway, I was impressed and it was only his first day training. Hes making way more money in boxing but hes a man who likes challenges and it ain't about the pesos this time around. - - #digitalartwork #stephenthompson #digitalillustration #digitalart #drawing #sketching #illustration #sketchingart #artwork #digitalpaint #digitalartist #showtimeboxing #ufc #mmaart #danawhite #ufcfanart #moneyfight #boxingart #manchesterunited #mmaart #deontaywilder #mixedmartialarts #prideofgypsies #irishman #darrentill #boxing #gypsyking101 #gypsyking #tysonfury
What’s the button command to do an ankle pick?
Conor McGregor reflects on winning his second title three years ago (which, unfortunately, is also his most recent win).

3 years ago today I became a multiple time, multiple-weight World champion at Madison Square Garden, New York City. What a moment in my life. To capture the double once. Wow! To do it twice. Lord have mercy I often look at this second picture and imagine how trippy that view must be for my father. Looking up at his son after doing exactly shot for shot what I told him I would do. I even done it no hands the second time. I will credit hard work for this moment but it’s not just that. Hard work alone is not enough. We can all work hard for a minute. It’s the consistency to do it over and over and over again that will lead you to these iconic moments. Year after year of focused work! I worked hard my last two fights. No doubt. But without consistency, I fell short. All amazing and valuable lessons going forward on this journey that is Martial Life! Onwards we go... Happy Tuesday everyone.

This is endlessly funny to me. Why sit down like this in a fight for any reason, let alone one that allows soccer kicks?
There’s a new nickname for some variation of the guillotine choke every week. Remember when Cody Mckenzie was doing this to everyone? Fun times.
TUF 24 alum Adam Antolin (@AdamAntolin) continues his rapid ascent up the strawweight class, sleeping sixth-ranked Hiroaki Ijima with a rare prayer choke just over 30 seconds into round two! Now 15-5, "Captain Chaos" is 2-0 in Pancrase. He has finished 13, 9 by sub. #PANCRASE310 pic.twitter.com/FdkHaPTCIR— Kyle Johnson (@VonPreux) November 10, 2019
Ever seen a bird cross its legs?
Midnight Music: The Velvet Underground & Nico is an all-time favorite album for me, one that I can never listen to a single song of without inevitably playing the rest.
Sleep well Maniacs! More martial arts madness is always on the way.
